Re: KTM 76014937044 LED indicators

Not sure. LED's need a series resistor anyway (as a constant current source) as the hazard circuit board won't have that. Incandescent bulbs generate their own resistance when they illuminate. If you want to experiment, buy a LED and 100 Ohm 1 Watt resistor and some 22 AWG wire. Connect the LED and ...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Hi Elvis

My gear has been ordered, so now waiting for it.

How did you remove the 130Nm clutch bolt ?. Did you use a shaft lock bolt ?

Cheers J

Re: 2010 SMT has been in shop for six weeks!

Is it possible for you to take a video of your bike faulting ? Can you replicate the electric shock experienced by the mechanic ? Can you get a photo of the coil sticks and plugs ? (are you confident enough to pull down the bike to remove them ?) Can you get TuneECU ?. It would be good if you can co...

Re: 2010 SMT has been in shop for six weeks!

Hi Dave

I hear ya. This will be my last KTM too.

Are you able to try the above mentioned suggestions with TuneECU and the side stand sensor ?

Can you do a 15 min reset ?. This is very easy to do. It's probably not that, but it's worth trying.

Re: KTM 76014937044 LED indicators

I could be wrong, but in this modern age, I would have thought the blinker circuit would be a digital timer controlling a transistor. The timer being either a micro controller or a programmable configured integrated circuit (FPGA, CPLD etc). All these would be independent of the load (ie: the LED an...

Hi HR

The blinker circuit is integrated into the hazard light switch.

Re: Leaking fuel cap

Nagh, this leaks regardless. I always smell fumes. Yeah, those caps are available, but would rather keep the tank standard and replace the seal. I'll crack it apart on the weekend and try to find a matching seal (I nearly put "and try to find a match" Woof ! LOL :lol:).

Leaking fuel cap

Hi All My fuel cap is leaking. The seal is worn (see pic below). fuel_cap.jpg I smell fuel during riding. Wriggling the cap, it doesn't feel that it's pressing against the seal very. The cap is not serviceable (no break down on the KTM fiche) and a new cap is $400AUD !. Has anyone serviced their cap...

Try backing off washer and retighting. I know it's a new washer, but that's what I would do.

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

So well balanced, front to rear evenly weighted on the tires. Not front end dominant like most "performance" bikes. I've been thinking about what you said for a few days now. The thought keeps on returning. The SMT is possibly the easiest bike to wheelie (other than small dirtbikes). You pop it up ...

Re: Side stand sensor failure

Yes please eagle_awd. If you could also measure the current flow into the pink wire that would be good too. Just to follow up my last post, here are my ideas below. The top circuit is a temperature compensated constant current source using a small LM334 IC, a diode and 2 resistors. A printed circuit...

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...

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.
