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.

Great, looks like we started a club no one wants to join. :(

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: Hello From Texas

I had a beautiful girlfriend. Stunning 6' tall blonde. She didn't like my motorcycles. She's no longer with us.

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.

Duke, Diavel and Vmax comparo

Here's my rough review of all three bikes in comparison. My standard disclaimer is: I ride on highways mostly, a few back roads, and no track time. I have back problems so I can't ride for more than a few hours at a stretch. Keep that in mind. 2014 Vmax: Appearance: The Vmax is a surprising attentio...

Re: Flashing the SD 1290

[/quote]Hi. Yes, I understand that but the point I'm worried about is that no 2 bikes will have the same fuelling requirements, even if they both have the same mods. How do we fine tune? With a PCV I would go to a dyno operator, as nearly all are familiar with DynoJet products. How can Shiv know how...

Re: Oil Leak on New 1290

No, I can see clearly that the oil filter cover is clean. It's seeping out right from that bolt which is way back from the filter cover. I just don't see what that bolt is holding together.
i will be taking it back to the dealer this week.

Yes. I started feeding them and they wouldn't leave.

Re: Flashing the SD 1290

Has anyone out there ordered one of these OFT's yet. I've messaged the guy but not had clear answers yet. He says the unit has pre-loaded maps that can be swapped but surely this would need dyno time. Most dyno operators near me use PCV software to make changes. Would I have to turn up at dyno, do ...

Oil Leak on New 1290

I noticed a few drops of oil when I first got my new bike home. I didn't think much of it. Maybe the dealer dribbled it when prepping it for sale. It's a 2016 so it had been sitting around awhile. I put a tray under it to see if it was still leaking and if I could spot from where. I saw only one dro...

Hello From Texas

Howdy y'all! I bought my 1290 on 5/12. I have been messing around with it and burning off the break in miles so I haven't posted yet. I used my forums research to make decisions, including the one to finally buy one of these bikes. I wanted one since they came out. A dealer about 60 miles from me ha...

Re: Flashing the SD 1290

I ordered one after I spoke to Shiv. I trust the product because I've used one for my 2015 Ducati Diavel. It made a big difference. Since I only put in a K&N air filter and a new exhaust on my 1290, I don't expect a huge change. I did it just to get the air to fuel ratio right and add a little p...
