Something wrong with your setup if they don't turn off when you turn the bike off. Mine do on my 2016.
Hmmm...that's odd. I wonder what could be wrong. They work fine otherwise.

Re: Second motorcycle to contrast the 1290?

I have a 2014 Vmax in the garage with the Super Duke. I sold my Ducati Diavel in September. The Duke was just a little more fun than the Duc and it was more practical i.e. Bags and gas mileage. The Vmax gets my heart pounding and adrenaline going every time. The Duke just goes without much fuss so i...

Re: Heated grips

I just put them on my 2016. Fit perfect and they work great. Only con is they don't turn off when you shut the bike off. You have to turn them off manually.

Re: KTM PP Soft Bags Fading

Sorry I didn't reply sooner, been enjoying the weather.

I bought mine new, they were not faded from use. I thought the orange was weak out of the box. The dying solution fixed that so I posted it because it will also restore ones that have faded from sun exposure.

Re: Oil Leak on New 1290

I know what you mean. It doesn't matter how many bikes come out great, if you get a dud, you don't want it anymore. I bought a 2006 Rocket 3 Turbo back in May. I rode it home, it had oil and coolant all over it. I haven't seen it since. Dealer is replacing the breather valve, water pump, and bearing...

KTM PP Soft Bags Fading

IMG_3036.JPG I read about these bags fading before I bought them. I really like the look of the orange and black on th bike and I don't want to lose it. Especially since they are way over priced! So I bought some Rit fabric dye. Tangerine orange and plain black. I mixed it with water and tested it ...

Re: Is vibration above 7K rpm normal?

I think the vibes are inherent. There's not much to these bikes. It's an engine with a little bit of frame bolted to it. Mine is also smooth to about 8k, get angry vibes and the front tires get squirmy up to about 10k when I shift. I also get annoying bang back through the clutch handle when I shift...

Re: What to make of the Teething Problems forum

Hey Tex, did you use that openflash tablet you posted about previously? I was interested in any reports. I agree with you, the SDR is no beast if straight line acceleration is the criteria, but I will say mine is dead stock and I was disappointed in my 2015 Vmax compared to my B-king, till I got th...

Re: What to make of the Teething Problems forum

My Ducati Diavel has been in the shop more than all 16 bikes I've owned before it combined. It took about 2 years but it settled down and has been reliable since. The Super Duke had an oil leak when I bought it. I was afraid I was in for another rough time but so far that's been it. My slight disapp...

Re: Rear stand pin

I don't know what brand it is. I bought it off Amazon and there's no manufacturer info. But it works fine so I'd rather not buy another one. I'll buy a pin and see if it fits. Otherwise I may have to buy another. Thanks for the info guys.

Rear stand pin

Can anyone tell me the size pin I need to lift the rear of the Super Duke? I have a stand for my Diavel with a removable pin that I'd like to use instead of buying a whole new stand. Suggestions on where to order would also be greatly appreciated.

Re: Oil Leak on New 1290

OK gents, I got the Duke back. Dealer kept it for 2 weeks. Repaired it, tested it and watched it on the lift. It is leak free so they tell me. The replaced part is the suction pump cover. It's hard to see, but it's next to the oil filter cover. Pic of the part is attached, I could not find it on a p...

For Sale: Ixil XOVS Black Exhaust

I bought this brand new. I only ran it a few dozen miles. It's too quiet for me, even with the DB killer removed. I like obnoxiously loud and this is not. It is louder than stock though. I paid $426 for it. I'll sell it for $300 plus shipping. Only to the lower 48. This is just the muffler, mounting...

Re: Oil Leak on New 1290

My dealer said they ordered the suction pump cover and gasket. It's directly over the oil filter. Hope that helps. I won't have the bike back until this weekend. I'll post a pic then.

Re: Oil Leak on New 1290

That stinks. I meant to get on here and give you my update. My dealer did find the leak after several spray powder applications. It's a cover above the oil filter. Even the mechanic doesn't know what it's for lol. They are ordering a new cover and gasket. I'm bummed I'll be without my brand new bike...

Re: Oil Leak on New 1290

I haven't had time to bring it back. I am going there tomorrow. I'll let you know, but I'm curious too. I didn't feel any oil behind that area. I haven't had a leaky bike since the 90s.

Re: Duke, Diavel and Vmax comparo

The bike definitely will wheelie. That's not what I want. I want that kick in the pants as the bike takes off, not up lol. My OpenFlash Tablet is on its way. That should solve the leanness. I'll report back after I test it out.
