What should I buy for my new KTM 1290 SA-R?!

Listed below are the items I'm purchasing from day one. I'm not factoring in a skid plate yet because I can't decide on what I want. Really want Woody's Wheels but my budget is slowly running out.

SAS and charcoal Canister delete Stage 3 kit $89.95

Quick Flip Mirrors $229.95

Steering Damper $659.00

Total $1698.23

 

Slavens Racing

High Fender Kit $82.90

Fork guards $114.95

Total $216.09

 

Touratech

Frame Guard Kit $119.95

Total $129.94

 

Altrider

Clutch Cover $98.97

Total $114.90

Grand Total $2159.16

 

I hear the 1290 wheels are a bit stronger than the old 1190 so hopefully if you keep them aired up enough, you'll preserve them.

Does it not come with a damper?

Also, I'll sell you my quick flip mirrors if you want.  They don't work as well with my FasstCo handguards so I got the DoubleTakes.

I've been going over to the KTM shop every couple weeks, from what I've seen it doesn't have a damper.

Eric what would you suggest for a skid plate? The KTM plate looks real good. Mounting locations look good and it covers basically everything

Another one drinking the orange coolaid...just like me. 

One day I rode my GSA and wasn’t very happy. So I’m going back to KTM 

Would be nice to see you at the GS Trophy one day.  Maybe BMW will start making more dirtable big bikes soon.

 I still own a BMW. So I should still be able to participate in the GS trophy. Even if it’s a K 1600. I can rent a GS for the weekend
