Re: Kickstand fell off !

Same happened to mine at the weekend. approx 7500 miles. No idea where the bolt went but at least the stand stayed in place and just fell off when I put it down. Luckily had a Side stand switch eliminator with me (in case of switch failure, hadn't expected stand to fall off!) Probably a good idea to...

Re: What did you do to your ktm today?

That cheesy grin would have me putting a coat of clear over the tank to preserve the artwork for posterity. Me too :D My 3year old Grandson loves helping me when I'm tinkering or cleaning my bike, I've had a couple of near misses but "touch wood" I've prevented any serious damage up to now. I have ...

Re: Dam side stand switch

I have the tips for fixing the problem stored on my phone so that I can refer to them if I ever have this problem. My memory is bad so as long as I don't forget my phone :-) I should be OK!

Welcome HampshireHog. I too have a 2012 white and live in Hants. (Romsey) Enjoy the bike, and as you say, as you get older it does become the sensible choice based on ergonomics and road conditions.
