I don't have DCT , but appreciate what you mean ( tried it but felt it was not for me, I missed not being able to feather the clutch at 5kmh and I always fall off at that speed.)Not that much lighter. At most 20kg. DCT has much faster shifting than 990. The lighter tail-end of the KTM also makes it loose traction too quickly: I tend to sit much further back on wheel than my mate. Power means nothing if you can't get it down onto the ground. Keep in mind, we still get wheelspin at about 100km/h if we go hard..
I felt the same way about the "little useless box" so I used the barbed differential plug from my old jeep and fit the male end of the battery tender through it. I can also use the connection to plug into my portable compressor. or any other 12v accessory I can come up with.Had a USB charger and voltmeter kit left over from my Varadero (never installed it).
The toolkit space on this bike is pretty much useless space so I put the charger and voltmeter in there. Easy to reach and directly below my helmet to charge my Sena unit or to my pocket to charge my phone.
If I recall, you are using the Batzen and VStream. If so, what did you do for the mirror interference on the VStream?
