Congrats on the new bike. This forum is a bit slow, but there are some knowledgeable folks here.

Re: Seat Break In / Comfort

I tried both seats also. Then I had Sargent make a seat for it. Problem solved.

Re: Ergo Heated Seat question

Mine did have to be activated by the dealer. It's a quick and simple process. My dealer did not charge me to do it. But I did just buy the bike and the seat from them. I don't think there was any code needed. They simply activate the setting when they hook their computer to the bike.

Re: New Wheel Removal Tool - 60/40mm Combined for 1290 HDESA Brand

Cheers JJ, I thought the same and just had to buy it....... :lol: . But it will be a handy item.... I'm hoping the 40mm side does the drive sprocket nut..... there are no hex nuts on the front axle of an SDGT...... if so then I have a tool to swap from 16t to 17t if I want..... I'm just over 18k km...

That is like tool porn. Might have to get one of those. Thanks for posting.

Re: 2017 vs 2019?

Please keep us posted. I think you have a great approach. As much as I like my 2017, I admit that $20,000 for it would have been a deal killer. I got mine when KTM had incentives on them. I have three motorcycles and a pretty nice car....and I'm now retired. I can't do it with smoke and mirrors anym...

Re: 2017 vs 2019?

There are quite a few differences to the 2019. I have not ridden one, so you will have to decide how important the changes are. I'm going by memory...

Re: 1290GT oil leak

I agree with Dave. You apparently never lost enough oil to lose pickup in the engine to keep oil circulating.

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

Sorry to hear Dave, but those operations are very routine now. My riding buddy had it done a couple of years ago. Two months after his surgery we did a 3700 mile trip.

Beautiful dog. I’m a huge dog lover. Send him to Houston and I’ll walk him :D

Re: Gearing Ratio's for SDGT's

Good information Dave. I'm still stock, but I do think I might try a bigger rear sprocket. Just hasn't risen to the top of my to-do list yet.

Re: 2019 SD-GT Overheating Discrepancy

Thanks Dave for your follow up. I’m getting warnings coming up when I try to go to the other KTM forum. Anyone else getting this? Is says it could be a site impersonating the other site in order to steal information.

Re: New bike damaged cam lobe!

Way too early to get concerned or think about a lemon claim. I'd be upset to, but that stuff does happen.I really don't read about too many serious problems on theses bikes. I personally know a guy who's entire engine was basically rebuilt due to a still unknown problem - he had bought is used. KMT ...

Re: MTC and engine light

SuperDave has knowledge of an issue that I don't, so I don't want to imply he is not right. But I have had error messages that seem to be related to a weak battery. I put a new battery on it about a month ago. So far it seems to have eliminated one issue I had, but it may be premature to declare tot...

Re: 30K service

Just to confirm, I’m still checking the forum daily. I’m cureently in the middle of a ten day trip to the Smoky Mountains on my FJR. Having a great time. Giving the SD GT and Ducati a break. My friend is also on an FJR. He also has a SDR and a H2-SX.
