Re: 2019 KTM SDGT Photo's are Out

wundabar!
Danka pk. :)

I like it but I think I like the front of the current bikes better. THis is one of the few times I'm not overly eager to trade up. My bike being 4 months old doesn't hurt either :D

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

Thanks Rock. Two days and counting. I’m going to the hospital this morning for pre registration. They call it pre-op, but it’s really about making sure I can pay and sign waivers :lol: Yes, it's to get you while you're lucid for the most part :D . They do actually need to make sure you're "ready" p...

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

shoot sorry to hear this JJ. They've gotten much better with them but the recovery does take a bit of time. I know what you mean with regards to pain killers. Whenever I get some for root canal, shoulder vacuuming or something, I throw them out as soon as I can sleep without them. I like them a bit ...

Re: KTM Top Case

Not sure why I’m just seeing this post. Yes, the S1000R is gone. I liked the bike and put 23,000 miles on it. I can’t explain it, but I liked it a lot but didn’t love it a lot. I was surprised that it lacked refinement in a few different areas. I have read that the upgrades in 2017 made it a bit mo...

Enough "me too" Phonies

I've had enough of these fake me too biotches. I feel for the "real" victims, but these end of their rope hasbeens need to find another way to become viable.

Re: Anyone try National Cycle V-Steam wind screen.

I got really hot and humid so I didn't put it on as I was enjoying the wind blast. I also wanted to make sure I really needed it before I took it out of the box in case I wanted to return it. Well, it was like 60 degrees this morning and I was freezing on the highway in my summer mesh jacket, so I t...

Re: Seven warranty claims, and counting

I literally humped my GT today in the parking lot. THis bike just does something to you. Even to normal people :lol: I had the master cylinder replaced the day before I picked up the bike, and have since had the fuel pump replaced, which took only an hour, and that weird dampening error from the loo...

Re: Fork seal gone

I think the GT has very stiff fork seals, as they all seem to leave a smear for a few 1000Kms or miles, i didn't see anything to worry about in your fork photo, if they start to puddle at the base of the fork then id worry. mine took at least 5-6000 Kms before being dry. This is very true Dave. Tha...

Re: Flashing E Realy Means One Gallon Left!!

I got 95 miles on a tank on my Tuono. I didn't need a gauge. An hour and a half tops and I was done.

Re: Flashing E Realy Means One Gallon Left!!

I sort of made that assumption today when it started flashing and the miles to empty said 30. I cut that in half as my experience has been on all my vehicles that the trip computer can't be trusted. After about 10 miles of riding it still said 30 and I pulled into the first gas station I could find...

Re: Anyone try National Cycle V-Steam wind screen.

Vstreams seem to be out of stock for a while now. Could it be they're not making a screen for the GT anymore? that was pretty much the only screen I felt didn't kill the looks of the bike.

Re: Fork seal gone

Ive only had the DES fault come up once, it was after a 220Km ride over fast windy and bumpy roads while being chased by 2 1290Rs, it occurred when we stopped for gas next to our accommodation, i parked it up for the night and in the morning it was gone, and never returned since. Interesting I was ...

Wiped it off and didn't see anymore but havne't had a chance to ride the bike since do to the never ending rain. Not sure if having that bit of ooze...

Re: GT missing from KTM site

Interesting. I was told no models were coming to the US in 2018 as well. The 2018 is up on the website but there's spy photos of a redesigned one as well. I'm going to guess we won't see a unit in the states for over a year. I think there are still '17s they have to get rid of.
