Re: Pushing the GT in 1st gear

Thanks guys. Good to know it’s not an issue with the SDGT. Like I said, my BMW R1200R is easy to push around in 1st with the clutch squeezed. It has a dry clutch though. Maybe that’s the difference.

Re: SW-Motech Handlebar Guards on 2017 KTM SDGT

Wow Doc. ;) Nice job and way to work through the the issues. It looks really sharp—especially the LED turn signals. Was it difficult to wire in the turn signals?

Re: Pushing the GT in 1st gear

So just to confirm, it’s not supposed to be difficult to roll the turned off bike in 1st gear and the clutch squeezed? It should be just as easy as if it is in neutral?

Pushing the GT in 1st gear

Hey guys. When I try to move my turned-off GT around the garage with the clutch squeezed and the bike in 1st gear, it's really difficult to move around. When I put her in Neutral, it's easy to move her around. I'm confused by that. It makes no difference moving my turned-off BMW R12R around whether ...

Re: Warranty coverage for 2016 SDGT?

Really? 2 years warratny in the US? I bought my '16 in November and it only had a 1 year warranty. When did you purchase yours akamire? That may be how they slashed the price so steeply and offered the dealers a rebate.

Boy I wish we had some hot, humid weather here in the northern hemisphere right now. (Got to be careful what I ask for—I really don’t want that much global warming!😬) But my stable of mounts are getting restless in the snow!

Re: 40 T rear sprocket

Some have noted that changing to a 16T front sprocket was too extreme. Most have felt just a 2-tooth change in the rear does the trick. I’m curious how a 41T or 42T rear sprocket would affect the bike since the 40T was such a positive change. I’m not so into sheer speed as I am into low end torque a...

Re: 40 T rear sprocket

So I changed to a 40T Supersprox Aluminum Alloy rear sprocket. As everyone said, it was pretty straight forward even though I've never even adjusted a chain before. I took her out today and I must say it has vastly improved the riding experience for me. In addition, as many have said here, I'm slowl...

Re: GPS Bracket

I assume when you tighten the bolt on the RAM mount the gap that the windscreen securing pin travels in must narrow some, no? Does this change the ease with which you can raise and lower the windscreen?

Re: GPS Bracket

Hey Mr. C, I happen to have that RAM ball mount and fit it in the gps bracket. When I passed a bolt through, it seems to still wiggle quite a bit. Did you shim the gaps to keep it steady? I assume you used the second hole from the ball, or did you essentially cut it in half and use the hole next to ...

Re: GPS Bracket

Thanks guys! Eddie--so you unscrew the instrument panel and fish around to find two wire harnesses--one switched, one unswitched? I think I remember reading there are switched and unswitched power sources under the seat too, no? I can't understand why information like that isn't clearly described an...

Re: GPS Bracket

Thanks guys. Unfortunately I have already laid out the $$ for the KTM mount. That looks like a really good inexpensive solution Mr. C. Can anyone possibly put up a picture of exactly how the mount is attached behind the instrument panel? There’s no instructions with the bracket and it isn’t at all o...

Re: GPS Bracket

And how do you attach the KTM nav mount to the bike? It’s not at all obvious to me.
