With the introduction of the KTM 1190 Adventure there has been a rush of new products on the market to fill a demand for cool new “performance products” that owners think they need on their bike.  One of those items that typically will give some small performance gains is a new, less restrictive air filter, or at least one that is easier to clean.  

I have seen several sites selling the new Uni air filter for the KTM 1190 Adventure and it’s being sold as the “greatest thing since sliced bread”.  This filter is coming from Uni – Australia and is not available from Uni – USA.  I recently was at the Parts Unlimited Expo and Uni USA was in attendance and I spoke directly with their representative as to why the filter was not available in the USA?  There were several reasons:

1)  The OEM filter design is poor (in their opinion) and does not provide enough filter material/space.

2)  The Australian Uni replacement filter design is just a small perimeter filter with some foam that is pushed into the intake tubes and they feel that that will become very restrictive and not work as intended.

3)  Due to the poor OEM design, and the problems with dirt ingestion that some customers are having, Uni USA does not want to take on the liability of potential engine damage and the possibility that a customer would claim it was a result of their filter.  

So take that for what it is worth and be cautious about what you are putting on your bike.  Not everything you see has been thoroughly tested and you may be rushing head first into a problem.

Pretty much the hottest new bike out there is the KTM 1190 Adventure and Adventure R and there are a lot of them hitting the trails and roads.  The problem is that many of the “must have” accessories haven’t hit the shelves of most stores but Dual Sport Warehouse is already stocking up on 1190 Adventure accessories and has created a new tab on our site dedicated to featuring new gear that will fit the KTM 1190 Adventure.  We are searching all our vendors to find the parts and pieces that fit the new 1190 Adventure and putting them all in one place so you can find them easily.

Remus Sport Exhaust HexaCone Slip On KTM 1190 Adventure

Dual Sport Warehouse has been using and selling Remus Sport Exhaust systems for years on KTM motorcycles and we have found them to be very durable and high quality.  If you want a reasonably priced unit that will withstand years of use then you want Remus! Now Remus is one of the first to market with a beautifully crafted titanium slip on for the KTM 1190 Adventure, or you can choose the full carbon fiber model if you really want to stand out.

The REMUS HexaCone is the outcome of complete new material pairings in the construction of motorcycle silencers. This novelty causes much of attention with its exceptional optic resulting from the material combination carbon/titanium and the asymmetric-hexagonal design of the silencer body which guarantees excellent ground clearance whilst cornering.

The whole experience of the REMUS experts also flows into the internals of the HexaCone silencer: Low sleeve thickness to reduce weight, flow optimised components and the possibility to remove the sound insert for the racetrack make the REMUS HexaCone the spearhead of the entire REMUS sports exhaust line. The REMUS HexaCone is EC approved and offers in addition to the well known sonorous REMUS sound a performance and torque increase and convinces with a weight of just 1.5 kg in the full titanium version.

The REMUS HexaCone is a feast for the eyes, offering technical sophistication in combination with an extraordinary completely new design.

This is the Slip On version of the Remus HexaCone which includes the connector pipe and Carbon Fiber heat shield.
