Re: Painted my BST Rim.

Re: Akra titanium slip on for sale, cheap!

He probably saw what they cost new and retracted! Apparently KTM considers the stock can worth $650. as the promo Akra in spring of 2016 for new leftover 2015's was valued at $350, same as the ins paid out when bike was totaled. Akra's prices are just stupid!

Re: Second motorcycle to contrast the 1290?

Go ahead and buy the tuono, you know you want it, it stole the show this year in every shootout and I think the Italians have figured out how to get more than 20 mpg out of that motor! personally still reading to many problems over on that site tho they seem to get better every year.

Re: Full Akro vs. Akro Slip-on and Arrow mid pipe

I used a bodis midpipe with the akra slip on and akra map and got slightly different results from my 2015 than my 2016 and I think the 2017 is similar to the 'GT' models in that just swapping the mid pipe and downloading the map will screw things up! if you have the arrow with the small cat built in...

Re: extended warranties

thanks for the reply. I asked my dealer about the midpipe swap and they said ktm wouldn't void the warranty for doing it so long as it was done responsibly, which I took to mean if my conversion didn't cause a malfunction I would be allright, coarse factory warrantys and aftermarket are different be...

extended warranties

My 2016se warranty will expire early summer and i'm wondering if getting an extended one is worth the money? I managed 10,500 on my 2015 incident free and I didn't baby that beast. I join forums of bikes i'm interested in to help me decide and the aprilia forum convinced me I won't be buying a tv4 a...

Re: ST Tires

The shops here get $75 to change the tire on a bike I ride in so longer lasting tires will pay for themselves. We do have a guy locally that will change tires for $25 if I bring the wheel in, but i'm the guy that would get in a hurry and knock the bike off the stand working on it so anything more en...

Re: To wheelie or not to wheelie

Doesn't the mtc setting affect wheelies? street mode being pretty neutered and sport mode allowing some fun?

Re: gt or standard

that active suspension is tempting, but I read mixed reviews from owners, and if you're looking at 14-17 models the r isn't euro 4 so modding should be easier/cheaper.

Re: Throttle response

I bought the 16t for my 2015 SDR and after the cat delete and akra map I decided the first 3 gears were touchey enough and never installed it, it's hanging on a hook in my garage.

Re: Hard 2017 sdr test

I bet he woke up sore. $hit happens fast on a bike but it was good to see the old fart up and joking about it. does ktm replace the broken and bent parts and keep the bike in circulation?

Re: Second motorcycle to contrast the 1290?

I had an 06 R3 and I was thinking that a used roadster with a carpenter kit could be done for less than the cost of a new leftover super duke. a 240hp 170 ft/lbs three cylinder cruiser would be a fun bar hopper.
