Full Akra set up minus a bit

Put a zip tie on your fork and take the bike for a ride. The bottoming out point is about 1.5 cm from the base. If the zip tie makes it down there, your springs are to soft.

Full Akra set up minus a bit

If your not using aftermarket fork cartridges, the stock springs are very light. For some reason KTM thought it was a good idea to not install preload adjusters. Sounds like you need heavier springs. Track settings only affect the compression and rebound.

LED rear stop/tail light replacement options??

I just picked up the blasterx for my SD. It was pricey but I love the brake light programmable modes.

Re: Wich fuel is better

Lower the octane = more HP but also could be to low and cause engine knock. Higher octane fuels are required on engine with high compression. I don't know anything about ethanol since i'm from the state famous for corn :(

Re: Need recommendation for good naked bike helmet

Arai defender pro is an excellent helmet. According to RevZilla's review, it was designed for naked bike usage.

Without ear plugs there is a lot of wind noise, but My ear plugs take care of that.

Re: 1290 Power Commander V Custom maps

A very important note, make sure you only use a map that matches your country/fuel. I didn't pay close attention to that fact and have been running map #9. All the mods matched but I am in the USA using 93 octane fuel. I had been using that map for the last year and a half. I was at a trackday last ...
