Re: Side stand sensor failure

Hi bambadoo Last month, I followed up your work on the side stand sensor and measured the voltages and currents of my side stand sensor in order to understand the problem. 01_measure_11AUG18.jpg 02_measure_11AUG18.jpg I've derived an equivalent circuit. The sensor + ECU is equivalent to this circuit...

Re: Clutch Slave

Ok, I better preempt and order mine.

I changed the clutch fluid a few months ago. It was filthy. I flushed it a few times.

Re: Remove oil tank

Hi mate. Not a hard job at all. Pop the oil lines off and then remove the tank. The brackets that hold the oil lines into the engine is a bit of a prick design. Easy to get off, hard to get on. I replaced the oil line seals with Viton seals I brought from a local seal specialist, saved fking around ...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Good on you both for going hard :). When I came on this site, I noticed a lot of SMT riders with that "fuely" app screenshot in their signature block and many talked about fuel economy and touring on the bikes. That sort of set the bad stereotype. Perhaps they have moved on to BMWs or Goldwings now ...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

BTW, I agree with jhalfhide that the SMT can be just as spirited a ride as the Superdukes. I own both an SMT and an SDR and the SMT can definitely be ridden just as fast or faster in some situations. Love them both. Yeah I agree. Nothing wrong with the SM frame, but the SD site seems (seemed ?) to ...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

It's to do with drivers slowly increasing (creeping) their speed to either get past cars in multi lane traffic or bet the lights.

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Lucky you. Unfortunately, the cops here are all over us riders like sh*t on a blanket. If we go 2km/h over the limit (they call this "creeping"), we are putting people's lives in danger.

Re: Would you change an SMT for a 1090 Adventure

Yeah, excellent point. I'm keeping mine while I can get cheap parts. I just hate it when is breaks down before winter (my flavourite riding time). Might have to consider getting two bikes :D

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Good on you Elvis. Keep us informed. This is a serious safety hazard you have unearthed in my opinion. KTM need to sort this sh@t out. You could've had a catastrophic off (180km/h lock up !) and possibly nobody would have known what caused your death, and the police investigation would have conclude...

Hi Elvis, I posted your thread link on the superduke forum as there are many more 990 LC8 owners on this forum to propagate this safety warning (these guys ride their bikes much more harder than SMT owners). http://www.superduke.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=27941 As echoed by other members.

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Hi Elvis, Yes, good move by contacting KTM directly. If no response via email within 1 week, then send a registered letter giving them at least 2 weeks notice to respond (state that in your letter). If no response/action within a month, then "name n shame" with a youtube video. I know the feeling. M...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

That is potentially a catastrophic failure and it's a safety issue. My recommendation is don't do anything. Contact the dealer and take it from there. This could result in a model wide recall !

Re: SMT Suddenly Died

Ok. This is a "where's wally" exercise. I bet a Toberone it's the reg. Could you disconnect the 2 pole connector going out of the reg and see if the short is isolated.

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Sounds dodgey to me Elvis. You don't want a high speed lock up. Definitely time to split the cases and check that pressure valve. That's the only thing I can think of. Reminds me of an uncle who owned 1000 Vincent twins. These engines had a oil starvation fault at high revs and would lock up at the ...
