Re: 2017 Keyless issue

KTM lost me as a customer because of this keyless issue, 5 months & they could not fix the issue, the bike was sold & I moved on to a different brand after owning 4 new KTM's over 4 years & now looking at motorcycle 52 next month.

Re: O2 eliminator..? Ebay. Build your own.

Yes factory ECU's can be reflashed you would have to find someone that would do it for you I don't do the 1290's but they can be done, if you search this forum you will find guys that have bought software & are able to load the developers custom maps into their 1290 factory ECU's.

Re: O2 eliminator..? Ebay. Build your own.

What I have found with my O2 controllers is they work fine on the Euro 4 emission ECU's in controlling the closed loop AFR's but the ECU can detect that the O2 sensor signal has been tampered with & put the engine light on, I suspect the O2 eliminator will be the same that it can fix the closed loop...

Re: 2015 or 2017 model?

Besides the looks & ergonomics'. In 2016 KTM gave the 1290 a few more 6HP & Torque over the 14/15 models as in more ignitions as in new ECU software, in 2017 they gave it a few more ponies with head work, shorter stacks & a few other things. The 2017 1290 suspension was an improvement over all other...

Re: 990 Power Commander 5 & Tune ECU custom maps

I must admit I hated the heavy engine braking, it unsettled the rear end when coming on off on the throttles when racing around, when down shifting with less compression braking under hard braking there is far less chance of locking the rear wheel up. I even fitted a slipper clutch to both my 990 SM...

Re: 1190 Adv Speedo correction

Have not been asked to produce the rings for the 2017SD models, the 2017 Speedo is only a few KPH/MPH out, the 2014/16 models are way out.

Still got plenty stock of the 1290Sd 2014 to 2016 models.

Re: Kev's 1290 modification list

Fit all the mods you want, then get Steve to supply a PCV or buy your own then get Steve to build you a custom PCV map built on our fuels for your bike, the rewards of a custom map is well worth the money.

Re: Reset service indicator

That is because the instructions were made on March 2014 & can be applied to 15 to 2016 models as well, I have not seen any short cuts on the 2017 models yet.

I have edited the main heading to make it clearer for everyone.
