Re: My new GT!

Should get my SD GT in Dec. Eurosports includes 15% off all acessories & installs them free if you purchase them with your ride! I do allot of Sports Touring in the Appalachian Mountains in the USA (individual & group) so, setting the bike up for that purpose. Here is one of our events ( https://ww...

Re: My new GT!

Awesome - thanks Doc

Brilliant if it is available on all Dongles :)

I don't find it harsh at all - although I prefer responsive handling over comfort.

When are you taking delivery?

Re: My new GT!

@akarmire Yeah, KTM PowerParts Race Dongle - it permits settings made to MTC and ABS to be stored and not reset after each power cycle. The additional Race Damping setting seems to be something that not all have. South Africa is a beautiful country - there are so many places to see! Which region(s) ...

Re: My new GT!

@Aussie Dave - get well soon! It's definitely the Dongle - I pulled mine off to test. I find the suspension to be really good - better than my '14 SDR, and certainly more comfortable than the Tuono Factory I had a little while ago. I find it precise enough for me, while being comfortable overall - i...

Re: My new GT!

Hi akamire, I've only ever found a single reference to the RACE Damping Mode - the reference is concerning a Lap Time of Qatar - and a handful of Dongles that were programmed this way. http://www.motor-forum.nl/forum/list_messages/419511/5/KTM-Super-Duke-1290-GT-The-Beast-onder-de-GTs-6.html "Maar d...

Re: Thoughts on new tires

I have used Dunlop RoadSmart 3s before - which I really enjoyed.

Some rate the Angle GT more than them, I can't really tell you if they're very different, since I used them on a Tuono, but I like both just fine.

Re: My new GT!

Thank you for the welcome :) I have tried out the Street Mode - it is really smooth off closed throttle - which is really nice - I'd love to get a Mode that is just as smooth off closed, but closer to 1:1 (Sport-ish) beyond. I have had the bike in Sport since new - I'm happy enough using the clutch ...

Top right, there's a flag - pick the Union Jack - that'll give you English.

Re: 1290 Suspension

Thanks for the measurements! :D

Let us know how she goes now.

I'm going to re-oil the stock damper - going to go 10w initially - although I haven't experienced anything untoward.

Re: 1290 Suspension

When does the speed wobble occur? Accelerating hard or straight line? I increased rear compression damping a touch to fix that in the past. Increasing front rebound compression should help, too. Finally got the Mupo cartridges fitted! Running the recommended base settings until my new tyres are scru...

Re: 1290 Suspension

Thanks Silent. I need to get the specs to my suspension guy - where are you getting yours from? edit: Ahh, nm, I see you've replaced the lot :D I'll find out which measurements I'll need, but I suspect it would be things like inner diameter and spring length. Anyone have figures for the rear shock s...

Re: 1290 Suspension

Does anyone have the spring dimensions?

I'm trying to source replacement springs but I'm having trouble finding a supplier or the spring details.

I'm 100 kg in gear.

Thanks,
