Noise in the fork / brakes when braking slowly abruptly.

KTM 1290 Super Adventure 2015 When braking going more or less slowly makes a "wiki wiki" as if something lacked lubrication in the area of fork and steering pipe. To put them in situation in a descent with the motorcycle almost stopped but walking grasping the brake a little strong and loose, tight ...

Re: KTM 1290 Super Duke GT 2018 ???

Dont buy bikes like these, (or Multistrada/GS/high end bikes) and expect to recover most of the money a year later. It aint going to happen. Just the same with cars. Your getting a new and shiney bike with full warranty and breakdown cover. Price includes 20% vat contribution for the Goverment to p...

Re: Track Days on a SD-GT

The problem with the "semi-active" suspension is that the front and rear can not be configured independently.
On the 1290 SD R if you can.

What was the wheel that failed?
The front or the back?
How was the accident?

Re: 1290 Super Adventure speed wobble

My ex 2014 BMW R1200GS LC came with Michelin Anakee 3.
A 2,000 km I sold the Michelin. Horrible.. Horrible. The worst tire to go fast.
I put Contitrailattack 2 and was transformed into another bike.
The Anakee 3 not want them nor given away.

Re: Failure Fork KTM 1290 Super Adventure.

Sure you think so because you do not have a KTM 1290 Super Adventure 2015. I do not think the problem is to take it as a joke. It is a very serious problem. Thee seem normal that the right cartridge of the fork to be decompressed it lock and suddenly drop ??? That's what produces the clunck in the f...

Re: Failure Fork KTM 1290 Super Adventure.

In the 2015 model makes Clunck in the fork. It is not normal. In the 2016 model fork it is normal. No Clunk. Why they change the 2 cartridge of the fork in the model 2016? Because they are not good in the model 2015. The Ducati Multistrada 1200 and BMW R1200GS LC have semi-active suspension front. T...
