Installed white tank panels on my originally orange Duke. Also ordered eazi grips from UK, will install as soon as they get here.

What do y'all think?

I'm interested to hear about the graphics
where did you buy those? I know I've seen them before but I don't remember which website
did you install them? removed the original ones?

The stickers are the power parts part # 93008999100. Here's an example of where you can buy it: KTM Style Graphic Kit 390 Duke 17-21

I also bought the pair of the white tank panels, they're only $32 a piece.

The white tank shrouds come without any stickers, so I just used the stickers from the set and applied them. I gotta warn you, it's a bit tricky as the surface of the shroud is in three intersecting planes, so have to be very careful with applying it.

Try Aliexpress.com next time. Most stickers like that are ~$6 with delivery included. There’s a ton of goodies there, but if you’re going after brand name products then the price difference is negligible.

Install the tail tidy and bike now looks slightly more aggressive and compact. Cheap too from China.

Saved a fair bit of weight on that I reckon.

Also installed Grip Puppies on the handlebars to fatten the grips and reduce the vibration.

I highly recommend them for anyone who is having troubles with the vibration from the grips. Easily installed too in less than 10 minutes.

Though it might take some time to get used to the fatter grips, i don't mind it.

Now i'm just waiting for the aftermarket mirrors, Gordyhand's bracket for the flyscreen to arrive before I can install them.

Can you please post a link to these grip puppies? I’m thinking of using a tennis racket handle wraps on my handlebars.
Why is gordyhand’s bracket coming separately from the fly screen?

Hi John,

As requested.


as for Gordyhand's bracket. Link below. I don't like the larger flyscreen available online. Smaller one from the 1st Gen duke looks tidier to me.

Been really impressed with the little Duke 390 this week. Light, nimble through traffic, easily capable of licence endangering speeds on the motorway, 300 miles this week commuting to the office and it returned 76.8mpg, means I can keep the XSR for best at weekends
👍
Deserves a wash.

Hi Mav, top little bikes aren't they? My VTR is now gone and I use the Duke more than my aprilia.

I took it out for the first time, in well, at least 5 months to buy a cherry lattice pie, double cream, and a pint of milk and it was fun as f&@k, and after 16 weeks in plaster too

Hi Mav, I've mentioned this before on here but the best mod I've done (apart from the shock because I'm a fat git) was changing the gearing. A Duke 200 42 tooth sprocket fits with no problems and the OEM chain length is fine. It increases the speed range in all gears. 1st is still well low enough and 3rd becomes a much better overtaking gear. 6th becomes a little bit of an overdrive but, hey ho, that may even improve the fuel economy a little bit. Highly recommended and a cheap mod.

Great tip, thanks Kermit, was looking for different gearbox sprockets but gave up - if the 42T rear fits OEM chain sounds like a winner to me, will look one up.

Any particular year of 200? Guessing 2015 - 2018 would fit?

Installed new mirrors and fork seal protectors.

Also shimmed the clutch lever cable as the aftermarket one I got was a bit loose.

Overall productive work done.

I think it looks better compared to the original mirrors which looks like antennas.
