Re: Engine trouble

Thanks mate yes I'm in Hong Kong. Have seen the one damaged motor advertised on ebay. Was wondering if anyone else may have a better idea to source a replacement cylinder assembly. Part by part from ktm it's hella expensive. Oh well f+ck it it's only money, still love that bike, will remove the quic...

Engine trouble

Hi guys, I did a track day recently and have broken my engine. The front cylinder has 2 busted valves etc etc, it's ugly. Does anyone have a spare engine, or complete piston / cylinder assembly for sale ? Or suggestions where I can get one soon or cheaply ? Advice welcome please. Yes I had a spark c...

Re: how to fit a non powercommander quickshifter ?

Agreed, the Healtech unit looks like a good option. I like the new-type mini sensor - that would have helped me fit the unit without having to remove my Foxx racing GP shift adapter. For all these reasons I would have ordered one of these rather than the Bazzaz, if I'd known about it earlier.

Re: how to fit a non powercommander quickshifter ?

Thanks Rabbit, Rilla you are correct, the Bazzazz cuts the spark, not the fuel - it has 2 separate leads for each cylinder. My friends can reliably report it will belch out 2 foot long flame tails when shifting at or near redline. So far, I don't appear to have blown a valve. Wish me luck, I give it...

Re: Anyone sucessfully skinned the dash cluster?

Not on this bike but I did do it in the past on my RSV-4, for similar reasons. The dash was largely unreadable, especially with any sort of reflection from the glass, and looked MUCH better in white : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjatKutR7BQ Sorry the camera is super-wobbly, that RSV4 vibrated a ...

new horn

Hi Folks,

Wondering if anyone can recommend a good replacement for the stock horn ? I want something a lot louder, as the multitude of inconsiderate and oblivious drivers in this neck of the woods frequently deserve a good dose of it.

Thanks

Robert

Re: how to fit a non powercommander quickshifter ?

Thanks Kev, Have you or anyone else seen the same sort of dust ingress into the Rottweiler ? Should I be concerned about this ? I checked and it all seemed like very fine dust, quite oily (from the crank case breather I reckon).... My airbox has been on the bike for some months / thousands of km and...

Re: how to fit a non powercommander quickshifter ?

BTW yes I'll post pictures when I do the final fitment - I need to remove the tank again because the Rottweiler airbox is covered in crap especially at the front where the snorkels enter. I'm not sure if the filter is passing dust through from there but it seems possible given all the oily gunk I fo...

Re: how to fit a non powercommander quickshifter ?

Hi All, Quick update. Bazzazz QS-4 standalone quickshifter has been fitted and works like a champ. The sensor is bidirectional so it cuts the engine - fuel cut that is - in both up and downshift directions. Kill times are pre-set in the unit and vary by gear - they're quite high in fact, at 90ms I t...

Re: how to fit a non powercommander quickshifter ?

Sounds good Kev, Making one should be straightforward enough with something like an Arduino I suppose ? Gear position + RPM + shift shaft sensor inputs, programmable kill time, switched passthrough or block output to the fuel injectors..... I should probably build one myself really. Very interested ...

Re: how to fit a non powercommander quickshifter ?

Well I've ordered the Bazzaz unit - will update this thread once I have it.

Bazzaz tell me it should work in either street or GP shift pattern, which is nice, as I have the GP shift setup from Foxx racing.

Hey it seems like Bazzaz has a standalone quickshifter - has anyone used one of these ?

Right - I haven't bought one yet, am looking for (probably) non-powercommander suggestions.

how to fit a non powercommander quickshifter ?

Hi Folks, For anyone who's fitted a non-powercommander quickshifter, how did you connect it ? I ask as I'd like to fit a quickshifter but don't need the powercommander - I'm perfectly happy with the fueling as it is now, what with the 4th gear power wheelies etc. I understand there are the options f...

Re: The Pegs - How are they not a recall item ?

Yeah that thought has crossed my mind.

Kev mentioned that several guys have used these exact pegs before I bought them, without problems.

No issue with mine so far, and it's been a few thousand kms (4 or 5?) already.

Re: The Pegs - How are they not a recall item ?

I agree the stock pegs are really slippery, especially in the wet. Even with smaller feet. I fitted the el-cheapo ebay "R1" pegs as recommended by Kev - thanks again mate. They did require a little finnesse to fit (ref the filed part on the image) and are made from pretty lightweight aluminium - not...

Re: 1290 Duke Speedo correction ABS Rings

I have had mine fitted and they work well. No dramas, except for the toolbags at the local dealer who used RED Locktite on my rear wheel, to stop it wobbling....we broke the torsion bar undoing the wheel nut ! Idiots.
