Hi all,

My names Mitch, and I love my little 390! had it for a couple of months and use it to commute daily and longer rides on the weekend as well as a bit of track riding, taking it to my first drag night tomorrow. Started modifying it the day I took delivery, largely just cosmetic things, making it look a bit cleaner. Attached some pics of it a month or so back, couple more mods since but I'm yet to take some pics.

Thanks mate, the seat was well worth it. Much more comfortable than the stock item especially for long rides.

Thanks guys, yeah it's the ktm cowl, pricey part for wgat it is but worth it. Had a good night at the drags, best time was a 14.5 @ 150km/h. Should be able to get it down to a 14 flat if I work on my launches, pretty lack lustre atm!

i found and bought these ones they look exaxctly the same but different colour. but i have no idea how to fit them

Pair Gold Color Universal Motorcycle Bar End Side Rear View Mirrors -in Side Mirrors & Accessories from Automobiles & Motorcycles on Aliexpress.com

Remove the current bar ends (if any, usually fastened with an allen key) and replace with these. There may be a threaded insert in the bar ends that you either need to remove, knock in, re use or re-thread. It's not hard.

MAKE SURE the throttle returns easily to idle after fitting and before you blast off!
