Re: Bag gaskets

What gasket? My 2017 doesn't even have gaskets, seals, just plastic overlapping lips? Maybe they left mine out?

Re: Hard Suspension

I've owned a lot of bikes, three right now. I don't find the suspension overly stiff at all. I'm perplexed by the comments on this thread. I'm at 2100 miles on my 17 GT and feel exactly the same way. They can't be talking about my bike. I weigh 160 lbs completely geared up to ride. I have spent a l...

Re: 40 T rear sprocket

Just got my Sitta 40 T 7075 hard anodized sprocket and my chain barely reached around, of course I have 1200 miles so very little stretch has happened.... And yes I had it as loose as it can be.
I am going to get on it and ride this morning, we will see how it changes things!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Chain for KTM SDGT???

Me too. Has anyone done any 520 chain/ sprockets change on one of the SDGT? I'm not racing nor adding anything to add power, but losing some weight especially rotational weight sounds good. I did a similar move on my 2015 Yamaha R1 which has more power at the back tire than this bike and it lasted g...

Need muffler sizes

I'm looking at having an exhaust manufacturing company that has made carbon cans for a lot of bikes, but not the 17 KTM 1290 SDGT, make me one. If they appeal to others and work well, they could be available later on. I'm looking for the inlet end of the stock muffler has a pipe diameter inside, out...

Re: Clearwater Darla’s on 2017 KTM SDGT

Gary, I like the place where U have them. I for one have had lights in the same location on most of my bikes in the last few years to be SEEN by others. Research shows that a spread of lights is much more notable than a single point of light. That's my reasoning.

Re: New Forum member, NEED HELP w/ what factory extras i need

Never mind, I bought all of the electronic extras that are offered. Now thinking I wasted money on a dongle, on other stuff, hill hold thing is nice because of my driveway being steep right up to the garage door. Does this not work in N, just in 1st gear? Not even sure of what the other things were ...

Re: Finally Done III

What windscreen is that Doc? How U have your bike set up looks very close to where I am going with mine, very nicely done! I don't see the engine guards listed on the KTM web site, what and where are they to be found?
Are those drivinglights the small PIAAS?

Hi, my name is Pete Werner, from an area just west of Boise, Idaho.

I don't recall any motorcycle that I didnt appreciate for its own uniqueness and style. But th...
