Re: 2016 SDR stored off battery now throwing check engine light

you can clear that warning yourself. With the key off, press the up and down arrows at the same time, keep them pressed and turn on the ignition. Keep them pressed until the computer cycles through a bunch of stuff. When it stops, one of the settings displayed will be your service date/mileage. You ...

Re: 2016 SDR stored off battery now throwing check engine light

Hey Lee- It doesn't help or anything, but I'm in Santa Fe. Do you have any more info regarding the "check engine " light? I've had mine a few years now, and I don't recall seeing that particular warning. Was it the little yellow triangle with an exclamation point? That could be anything from low fue...

Re: 1290 flat up top

Interesting. The adjustable traction control is only on the newer bikes (>'17), so it never occurred to me either. The TC on earlier bikes, like mine, is either on or off. Kinda funny if too much power was your problem. Keep us posted with the OFT results, I'm curious. Lots of info on the Aprilia fo...

Re: 1290 flat up top

Can't offer any help, but this is the first I've read that someone was complaining about power on this bike. It'd be interesting to see a dyno chart and look at your hp/torque curve and afr curve. Good luck, hope you get it sorted.

Don't lose your key!

Just a heads up. I lost one key to my '15 1290. $140 to replace the key, and then @ $75 for the dealer to program it when it arrives. Ouch! And, as is often the case, the dealer knew less about this than I did. At first, he told me that I cannot replace just a key, I had to order a complete ignition...

Re: any issue with SAS delete and Cat?

Also, haven't I read that if you eliminate the SAS and leave the cat, it's possible to overheat the cat?.. Plus, it sounds so much better :D

Re: Clutch hydraulics needed bleeding

I also recently bled the clutch- bleeding at the slave had little to no effect, but I had the same results as you after bleeding the master. Totally different feel and engagement point, but it feels good. It's not the first time I've had to bleed the master. Every 6 months or so. Must be a small air...

Re: puddle of water?

I only experienced the puking when the engine was very hot, oil temp close 195F, if I remember correctly. Like being stuck in stop and go traffic in high ambient temp. It would spit out the drain hose on the left side of the radiator (by your left knee).

Re: puddle of water?

I had a shitty radiator cap that allowed the bike to spit coolant when the engine was hot. Brought it back to the dealer twice and they didn't fix it. After reading about the cap on one of these forums, I told them what to fix, and it hasn't been a problem for over a year now.

Re: Oil temperature

after warming up, mine runs @ 180F +. I'm not sure if 20 minutes is enough to really warm it up fully, especially if it started from "overnight" cold. Try working it a little harder and see if it warms up more. Hopefully you don't have a faulty sensor or similar...

if you keep the cat, as with just a slip on, you don't need to remap.

Re: LSL Drag bar

you know the factory bars have a second fitting option? You can move them to a more forward set of holes. Not a flat bar by any means, but just throwing the option out there.

Re: MTC Failure Disaster

the bike does use two different spark plugs, inner and outer (one a "regular" plug, the other a fancy iridium one), or at least the 1290R does

Re: Wanting to buy new rotors.. Power Parts versus Galfers?

There's a thread somewhere (http://www.superduke.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=26777&hilit=brakes) that describes a possible cause- the part of the wheel where the rotors mount may have some slight casting defects, pushing them out of alignment. A little cleanup and they claim to have solved it. Ed...

Re: Wongle my Dongle!!

1.buy dongle
2. plug dongle in under seat, attach with screw to keep in place.
3. after turning on bike, depress any of the 4 directional arrows on left controls to cancel error message.
You have to do this every time you turn on bike (at least here in USA), but it's not a big deal.

Re: ABS Sensor Spacing Measurement?

I simply carefully replaced wheel, and it all worked as it should. My guess is that if you don't beat it up too much you'll be o.k. 1 mm is a bit more than 1/32", so it is pretty tight. Could use a feeler gauge if it makes you feel any better to double check.
