Re: Constands CENTRAL STAND EVO or Abba SUPERBIKE

Abba supplies a bobbin that fits inside the rear axle. Alas, the very first time I used the lift, I forgot to remove the bobbin. When I went for a spin, the bobbin was lost somewhere along the way, never to be found. Abba sells replacement bobbins, but since I'm such a cheapskate, I just used an 8" ...

Re: Constands CENTRAL STAND EVO or Abba SUPERBIKE

Used my Abba with front wheel lift accessory yesterday, while installing new front tire for my SDGT. Worked like a champ! Easy, stable.

Re: Constands CENTRAL STAND EVO or Abba SUPERBIKE

@Aussie Dave: Great looking stand. Will make chain &tire maintenance a snap. Did they offer/did you also order the extra rail to enable lifting front wheel as well? Yours appears very similar to my ABBA lift. Same principle exactly, pins and all.

Re: Constands CENTRAL STAND EVO or Abba SUPERBIKE

I bought the Abba stand. Only one bit to each side. I "fixed" the bits to the stand with double sided tape, and no longer worry about them falling off just as I get set for a lift. I like the Abba, and recommend it to anyone still looking for a stand.

Yup, a GT, with regular oil and filter changes using Motorex. It's on the Advrider thread.

Cam lobes damaged!

Rider posted on another forum of scarred cam lobes found during 18,000 mile valve check. Anybody here see any damage/defects when doing valve check?

Get used to to it. No way to change it.
Yup. It's the one thing that my SDGT has in common with my DR-Z400S.

Re: ABBA Skylift stand

I have the regular ABBA lift, with the attachment for front wheel lift. Much less expensive than the Sky Lift, but still gives me the ability to change my own tires.

In my experience, a more apt term would be "ticket detector".

Did you get the fuel pump recall done as well Russ?
I know nothing of a fuel pump recall??? Tony did not mention it. Maybe only on the grey ones? Lol
My dealer said it was a fuel line (not pump) recall. But mine's a 2016, so maybe that's the difference.

Re: Bag gaskets

Does anyone else has the same issue I have with the factory bags? You open them and the gaskets get pulled out, having me to poke them back into place. Could glue them. Any other ideas? My left bag gasket was repaired (probably "re-glued") under one of my 7 warranty claims thus far (7 months, 5,000...

It is curious that foot pads for <$10 can be had for every KTM bike made...EXCEPT the super dukes. Wonder why that is? Could it be that little spur thing (the one that keeps breaking off)?

Re: Seven warranty claims, and counting

Looking forward to a tour of Spain this summer, here's hoping the pannier are stronger than they look. Do people think the 2017 models are improved to overcome the original design flaws? Kinda doubt there was any change whatsoever. My 2016 bags, except for the loose weather seal (now fixed), seem O...

Re: Seven warranty claims, and counting

Flapper is a lousy design. I think the bags are inherently flawed and I'm not even sure if they replaced them that I'd be in any better shape. My bags like to shed the weatherstripping and have big gaps in the front of them. That said, I absolutely love riding this bike. I don't think there's anyth...

Re: Fuel range displayed

The range on my bike is pretty accurate. In fact, I've checked my average mpg several times and it's always been within one mpg, and twice I've gotten better mileage than the readout on the bike. Good to hear the dealer was able to fix yours. I've noticed that my fuel range display must be just tha...

Looking for a bolt-on pad to help prevent the side stand foot from sinking into hot asphalt this summer. Lots of cheap stuff for under $10 bucks from China for the KTM Adventure bikes, and all the bikes up to 990...but nothing for the 1290 Super Dukes. I'm not ready to pay $70 bucks for the SW Motec...
