That air box looks sweet. Pretty sure the bike breathes a lot better than with the MH box since it has a lot more intake filter surface.
Can you post HP numbers?

no the dna is only for example (from kevtx he did the mod years ago)
i use the mh box , but milled a base plate for using with the orginal lower airbox part .
that is what gives you more horses , the "resonance airbox" ,
the bigger volume is the point

the dna airbox is better but it was to expensive for me

I picked up a rear paddock stand and some crash bungs and case protectors for the 1290 from R&G in the UK (a club that I'm a member of gets 10% discount from them, which helps).

The stand is nicely made, with the spindle pin sitting in bearings and it comes with a sturdy plastic sleeve that ensures a snug and non-slipping fit within the spindle hole. It's pretty easy to put the bike on the stand single-handedly if necessary, which is useful.
https://www.rg-racing.com/browsetype/Pa ... rettyPhoto - the pin requires ordering separately

The bike was on the stand when I fitted the case protectors, which in hindsight wasn't the wisest choice - I had to remove the two lower clutch case screws and the bike's upright stance meant that the oil in the engine cases was over the level of the bottom of the cover and while the screws were out it started dripping oil onto the bench. Since fitting the cover and torquing the screws to 10Nm I've noticed that I'm getting oil misting around the bottom of the cover and the case protector so I'll leave it on the side stand, pop the cover off and clean and dry the gasket and sealing faces. Hopefully that will fix it. There was no leakage or misting on the left side (alternator cover).

Well, where to begin? I can't remember what I may have posted up previously, humble apologies if I repeat anything....

I collected the 1290 new nearly a year ago now, cherry-picked a few bits from the PP catalogue; Akrapovic silencer, rider's seat, tail tidy, plus the track pack bundle of ones and zeros to allow me to deactivate the Anti-Wheelie. Premier Bikes were offering the QuickShifter as a freebie and I can't say I don't like it - have to be quick and positive with the shifts though, it grumbles if you're a bit slow.

Add-ons so far have been:
1. A set of R&G crash bungs and case protectors - regarding the bungs, they offered two levels so I chose the cheaper ones, for which you get a teardrop profile bung that bolts directly into the upper Engine mount. In use I found that these were only just ahead of my knees, close enough to be irritating, so I ended up separately buying the bits that made up the more expensive kit, namely brackets to relocate the bungs further forwards and away from my knees.

2. A radiator guard from our very own SuperDan - I ordered one for me and one for my wife's 790 and they were up to Dan's usual high standard and prompt delivery. Fitting to the 790 was simplicity itself, but the 1290 was more difficult due to the fan shrouds so I wasn't able to feed the mini cable ties through the corners of the rad elements as I'd have preferred. This is no reflection on Dan's guards, just KTM making fitment to the 1290 a bit fiddlier than it needed to be.

3. (Not directly for the bike, but related, sort of) - Since 2010 my road helmet was a limited edition Steve Hislop replica Arai (for those unaware, Hizzy was a top superbike racer a bit along the lines of Jorge Lorenzo, super tidy and smooth, and devastatingly quick when everything was as he wanted it, but struggled with issues when they weren't to his liking. In 2003, while reigning British Superbike Champion, he sadly lost his life when his helicopter crashed). The Hizzy lid was bubblegum pink, stood out very clearly and people said that when I was leading a ride-out it was super easy to spot and follow. I decided to retire it last year as it was into its 10th year of service. To replace it I wanted something similarly vivid, but there was nothing that really floated my boat, so I bought another Arai and had it painted orange (natch) with a design layout slightly reminiscent of the Hizzy lid. It was delivered at 08:30 on the morning of a weekend ride-out that I was leading....

4. While in Wales over the Easter break I spotted another 1290 with a fairly tidy looking little screen on it so I accosted the owner and asked where he found it - turns out it's a genuine KTM screen from a 690 I think, and an enterprising guy in Slovakia laser cuts, folds, and powder coats brackets in stainless steel for both gen 1290 SDRs and others. The guy's name is Frane Pavic I think and he does his business through Facebook (which I don't use) - if you search FS-CNC you should find him. Prices posted are about £138 or $150 US. The kit arrived promptly and fitting isn't difficult - as an engineer I've suggested an improvement to fitting by cutting Ø9.6mm holes in the bracket to properly locate the M5 Wellnuts supplied with the kit - hopefully he'll adopt my suggestion. When riding at speed along straight roads I've noticed very slight buffeting on the lid but it isn't bad. I have to admit that I found the 1290 very good for wind blast considering it's a naked bike.

5. Again, not directly for the bike, but very influenced by it - my rear tyre is about shot now with approximately 3800 on the odometer - a run up to Scotland and back last weekend saw it just about down to the wear markers. A new Metz ME7 RR would have been £195 from my supplier, but I got a Conti Road Attack 3 for £169. Then came the joyful bit of removing the rear wheel for the first time - or at least trying to... I dutifully removed the silencer and assembled by specially-purchased 60mm socket, ¾" to ½" adapter and 750mm breaker bar, Chicky (my wiff) dutifully standing on the rear brake... nothing... added a tube to the end of the breaker bar and put some weight behind it, the breaker bar bending like a twig... nothing. Today I took the plunge and found a place selling the DeWalt DCF899 Rattle Gun kit cheaper than anywhere else so I bought one via eBay - a mate has one and raves about it, so hopefully it will do the business.
Photo of that sodding wheel nut still defiantly in place - I'll post up any progress I make with the rattle gun

Me again.... just a quick update on wheel nut removal: A DeWalt DCF899 rattle gun shifts a not-touched-since-it-left-the-assembly-line wheel nut without breaking sweat, a couple of seconds of hammering and the nut started to turn and then whizzed off. Easy peasy. Tyre swapped and balanced, wheel refitted (a simple enough job to thread the front edge back in between the exhaust butterfly valve and the swingarm and ensure that the pins on the hub mate with the holes in the wheel) - this was done with the bike on a paddock stand in the back of my van, I took it to our local garage en route to the tyre fitters, they cracked the nut off and the obliging tyre fitter lent me his Snap-On torque wrench to re-tighten the nut. Back home for refitting of safety clips and silencer, fire up to check for blowing around the exhaust joint - none, and she's good to go. If anyone's interested I'll report back on the new tyre, a Conti Road Attack 3.

One thing to note, the socket that I bought for the wheel nut has radiused corners where the inner cavity has been machined out, and the edges of the radii mark the nut. Can't be helped I guess, it's down to the profile of the socket cavity and the relative softness of the nut material. I guess that it isn't an issue in the applications that normally use 60mm nuts.

Used it for escort duty taking my youngest son, who just passed his scooter test, to and from work. One or two more times and he’ll have the crosstown ride down.
