Re: correct chain tension after gearing/sprocket change

The chain's only so clean because it's not been used yet.

Thanks for the replies.

Re: correct chain tension after gearing/sprocket change

Here are 2 pics of the chain set up.

Does it look too slack?

correct chain tension after gearing/sprocket change

Hi, I've just done a 16-42 gearing change with a new chain and I'm wondering if the chain adjustment figure of 7mm of clearance from the top of the chain to the bottom of the swingarm still stands.

I'm thinking that it shouldn't make difference but I'm not sure.

Thanks

Levers

A few people seem unsure about levers for the SMT. You can pick them up from eBay easy enough. I followed an old link from here to an eBay seller and bought these a few weeks ago. I've had CRGs on my old Tuono and ZZR and they are really well engineered and beautifully finished. These eBay ones aren...

Re: Any Luggage for sale

I'm in the process of selling my top box. It's the regular KTM one that Jim Aim sells. http://shop.jimaimracing.co.uk/acatalog/info_60012027600.html I've never used it. I bought my bike 2 years ago with the top box already fitted by the last owner and i took it off when I got home. I've never needed...

Re: SMT levers

Have a look on eBay for a guy called 'abjoner'. I got some last week. I've had CRGs on other bikes and these aren't CRGs but are decent for around £60.

Re: Just sold me Tuono

My 2008 Tuono was awesome. I put 20000 miles on it.

Picos are great also. Me and Jjay69 are heading out that way again this summer.

Re: SBS Sintered front brake pads

I had them on my ZZR and they were terrible. They were embarrassingly noisy for around 500 miles. I decided not to use such hard pads ever again.

Re: Sprocket question....

I've been mooching around for a change of rear sprocket to a Talon gold one. I haven't found one larger than the 41 standard size. I was hoping to find a 42 or 43 but they seem hard to find.

Re: Tire pressure 32/32

My manual states 35psi front and back when solo. The bike's a 2011 SMT. I run 32 - 31 though and it seems fine.

Re: Best method for changing brake pads

Cheers guys. I'll try and take the pads out on their own for now and perhaps take the full caliper off after the winter when they need a more thorough clean.

Best method for changing brake pads

Hi, I'm thinking of doing some deep cleaning on my calipers and therefore need to get the pads out. Is it best to just take the calipers off or can you take the pads out with the calipers on the bike? On my old ZZR14 there was an external pad pin that could be unscrewed and the pads popped out. I ca...

If I'd have know that before hand, I think I'd have got my dealer to sort it out.

Re: Fuel cap increasingly difficult to remove/insert, 2011.

I considered this and thought that I would somehow definitely manage to drop a screw into my tank so with a damage limitation mindset I opted to go with modding the actual red plastic part. It is a lot easier not to mess up. As long as it works. I'm surprised that dealers aren't aware of the problem...

Re: Fuel cap increasingly difficult to remove/insert, 2011.

Ogden: I don't think you can mess it up. Take out the fuel cap (allowing 5 minutes of frustration to do this). I used one of the cylindrical stone attachment for my drill. Then very lightly smooth out the ridge at the top of the red plastic insert that causes the problem. It is this catching that st...

Re: Fuel cap increasingly difficult to remove/insert, 2011.

Just took 20 minutes with my Dremel and the problem is solved. I thought that was quicker and easier than bothering going through my dealer.

Re: Fuel cap increasingly difficult to remove/insert, 2011.

I've been looking into getting my petrol cap fixed. The dealer that I got the bike from (no longer an official KTM dealer) isn't interested in the problem and directed me to a main KTM centre. I contacted The KTM Centre in Hemel Hempstead and they were really helpful and looked into the problem but ...
