Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

It's amazing how much more power you can get out of that 1045 I-4. I don't know if I will go full akra as I have to be somewhat judicious with the modding costs, but I will do some power mod. I think my most major mod with be the rear shock. There's something about the Ninja that keeps me coming bac...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

The issue I had with my last NInja was comfort but Rizoma makes a great adjustable rear-set peg kit for it now. I also have contacted a shop that customizes the stock seat to make it livable. That will take care of the comfort for the most part. It won't be as roomy as the GT but will be good enough...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Had another look at the 'fuse box' and there are different height fuses in the centre positions with shorter ones to the outside positions....... so unless they are loose, the step up in the centre is not an issue. My GT fired up nice (as always)...... now if I can just get my body to work as well ...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Just had a thought bubble.. :o .... happens a lot at my age.... :lol: Over on the Caponord 1200 & RSV4 forums they are talking about dash blanking out (particularly on a hot start) and one tech guy added an extra wire from his battery to the starter motor....... this is an old trick and was based o...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

I think my bike may have come from another dealer to my dealer prepped. There was allot of loose stuff on my bike that left the KTM tech scratching his head, which led me to believe he didn't uncrate it. The bikes been well behaved since Saturday. I know they said my ground wire was loose, there was...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Wow Dave I feel like we should pay you for your research and report :D Thank you sir! I think I'm okay with point one as I have run her down pretty low according to the gauge and not run out. Although I have not done the filter or injectors favors by running low. As to ethanol, unfortunately it's un...

Re: Cold starting

Mick I'm having the same issues, and more, even after installing a new battery the other day. This bike does not like the cold. My dealer is useless as well and a good distance from me. Like you I'm starting to regret I bought the bike. My bike is stalling, blanking out, then flashing check engine w...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

It seems as though you guys are having allot less problems over in Oz and NZed, so maybe this battery is border like like you say ADave. NZDave it has been under 5 degree celsius here lately at night. Damp too from snow and rain. With the heavy weight oil maybe enough to kill a 6 month old battery. ...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Dave, this bike definitely has parasitic draws. Stuff is happening when the bike is off. I've let bikes sit in the snow for a week and they've started. this bike is a little tough and it seems for most all of us. I think once it's under 50 degrees consistently things change. I've read elsewhere that...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

I did get a click so that's why I was kind of sure it was the battery but after charging the battery again fully it still didn't work so I took it to an auto parts store. They tested it and everything was fine. All the proper volts and amperage readings were there, no bad cells, etc., they said it s...

Re: Seven warranty claims, and counting

I just replaced my six month old battery today. Not at all happy about that. There must some faulty wiring with this bike.

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Its looking more like a dead battery, but the bike should of started with jumper leads on the terminals, have you checked the main fuses?? removing a battery could have earthed the pos and blown a fuse. No Dave I have not checked the fuses. If they got damaged wouldn't the dash not work? It seems l...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Rock, when i pulled my battery out to help solve a query about replacement batteries, I noticed it came out easy (the ECU stands up out of the way). But...... I struggled to get it back in, and the ECU plate would not sit flat again. I found I had caught part of the +ve side wiring harness and it w...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

You may have a dud battery, it happens, I've had a few, even brought new they were a dud, earth connections, make sure theres no paint stopping a good earth, stand sensor? not sure if they have a tip over sensor? check that, and the obvious kill switch. top or bottom shouldn't matter with the cable...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

So this is great. The bike would not start at all so I removed the battery and charged it fully, and it still wouldn't start. We have two positive and two negative cables on this bike so I'm wondering if I put them back in in reverse order (big over small instead of small over big, etc), but I don't...

Dave given your progress I'm prescribing a track day this weekend :lol: It's tough getting over the "what effect will this activity have on me now" after some physical trauma, but time and proper therapy heals all wounds.

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Nice!!! Never doubt D-Rock! :D good to hear Dave, seriously. I had to start my bike thursday morning to move it. It was 28 degrees at the time and it would not start. After a few tries it did much to my surprise. When I went to start it this morning it gave me some trouble, but not much, and the nig...

Re: PR5s

Rock, the PR5's are a large step up from the PR4's, They match the 4's in the wet, but are far away better in the dry, their edge grip is great, no vagueness or squirming on the throttle compared to the 4's. I wasn't a big fan of the OEM Angels, they were ok, but the PR5s are a far better all-round...
