Re: Exhaust hanger

I have an R&G exhaust hanger with 1290 Super Duke R on it, don't need it anymore as I have a shorty Austin Racing end can ( no baffle nice and fruity).

Travelling in time with a lager and lime!!

So i have decided against the link de cat pipe, it sounds fruit enough for me, plus I cannot be bothered with 're mapping and buggering about with the engine, it's plenty powerful as it is for me, these big v twins like a bit of back pressure apparently, and with no cat you loose that i believe, any...

Re: Horn has stopped working.

My horn stops working when hot, like when riding in town traffic , once on the open road after a short while it works again, just a foible of the bike I guess!!.

Re: De-cat link pipe for SD R 1290

Well just spoken to a KTM dealer and i would need a power commander fitted as the de cat link pipe will mess up the fuelling, so I'm not going to bother as it's loud enough with the AR stubby end can and no db killer, just asking for the Gendarmes to pull you here, plus I have neighbours, and one ov...

De-cat link pipe for SD R 1290

If you install a de cat link pipe do you need an engine 're map as Well?, I have heard that these engines like a bit of back pressure!. Any advice welcome, cheers everyone.

Re: Akropovic shorty

That's an exhaust tip for a car tailpipe!! , you can see the jubilee type clamp it's using to fit onto the bike exhaust, not a bike slip on at all!!. You can get them off Amazon here in the UK?.

Re: Loss of low end torque AR exhaust and removing exhaust valve.

Had a discussion with my dealer, as I have a 16 from new and wanted to de cat it, his mechanic has fiddled around with de cat pipes on his 1290sdr , the long and short was if you start putting aftermarket stuff on you really do mess up the fuelling, KTM spent a lot of time money etc getting it right...
