Re: PCV O2 dongles with Rotti/Full Akra Evo

You need to use the dongles if you are fitting a pcv. If you don't the bikes ecu will try and alter the fueling that the pcv is trying to control when it reads the o2 sensors. The dongles stops this happening since the sensors are disconnected. If you think the akra map is enough then don't use the ...

Re: New to KTM - service question

US your good to go warranty wise.

There are tools for the older bikes but not for the 1xxx bikes unless something has happened very recently.

Re: New to KTM - service question

There are no diagnostic tools for the SA outside of a KTM dealer. For the warranty it depends where in the world you are.

Re: Mistakenly plugged the Crankcase vent...damage?

The only thing you could damage are oil seals. If you have fixed the breather and the oil leaks have stopped you should be ok.

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Clutch drag - who has it?

Um, no it's not. Yes it is lol. So if you go for a ride to warm everything up, then turn the engine off and restart it, does it still "clunk" from neutral into first? The op is talking about cold so yes but apart from that yes even hot bikes they still clunk going into first a bit if they have a we...

Re: Clutch drag - who has it?

Cold (thick) oil on a wet clutch of course it is going to drag. That's what the clunk is going from neutral to 1st as well.

Re: Servo buddy for SD 1290 R

You a BMW owner per chance since these are common problems on the GS range. A broken exhaust servo isn't going to leave you stranded, ever.

Re: 1290 R transmission smooth or..?

You will always get a clunk to some degree going into 1st on any wet clutch bike. The rest of the shifts on these boxes should be a pretty smooth experience if everything is adjusted to you.

No idea where you are as it isn't in your profile but on European bikes it fits under the seat.

Re: Licence plate light warning light

Replace the bulb with a big power resistor of a similar value. It will get quite hot so keep it where it will get some air.

Re: Bulb replacement

I have the cyclops kit in my 1290 SA. Plug and play easy enough install apart from the fact getting into the back of the light is a PITA on the SA. That goes for any bulb change on that bike though. It works really well too. I haven't bothered with any other lights as the cyclops puts out enough lig...

Re: Engine Coolant Keeps Dropping

Maybe something to do with the V or maybe ktm just didn't get the purging right. It's far from the only engine I have ever had that was hard to fill. Not saying it is right but most of the other ones ran hot until it was sorted out, at least this engine didn't.

Re: Engine Coolant Keeps Dropping

It's probably not loosing any but it is burping. I had to top my SA up 3 times before it settled and it doesn't use a drop now. Look in the 1190 and 1290 adventure threads and you will see the same theme everywhere. It's what they do from new. Draining and refilling you probably have to go though th...
