loose rear brake caliper

hello boys and girls,

please see attached video

did you connect the fuel hose properly to the tank? it needs to click, otherwise ther might not be proper pressure

Re: Rekluse autoclutch

according to http://www.rottweilerperformance.com/rekluse-exp-3-0-auto-clutch-ktm-950-990-updated-version/ yes it fits the SMT, SMR and any other LC8 engine. the crucial question is, what RPM is it designed to. (as many of us have the bikes somehow tuned and it only works properly with the correct i...

Rekluse autoclutch

Has anyone tried the Rekluse autoclutch on the SMT? What is it like?

does it just disengage the clutch when RPMs are too low? or is there anything else to it?

Re: SMT to GS?

thats funny, because i wouldn't expect the gs to be top heavy as it has the engine planted at the bottom.
I have to test ride one this summer.

check this one, the white wheel stripes make it look so much better

Re: SMT to GS?

even the old gs (2010) had 115Nm which is still 15 more than smt. (if torque is what matters) and the mentioned old gs dry weight = 203kg, smt dry weight = 196kg... as i said earlier - i have not ridden the gs. what do you think makes such huge difference in 'rider engagement', 'fun factor', or i do...

sorry, how is FJR similar to SMT or GS?

if GS is bland in such way, that its throttle is easily controllable, then i might just sell my smt and update to GS.

I love SMT, but that does not mean i can not see qualities of other bikes.

Re: SMT to GS?

I too, am interested in this topic... disclaimer : i've never ridden the GS you say the GS is boring...although power/weight wise (we're not talking GS ADV here i guess) , it is similar to SMT. I think if you twist the throttle on the GS, it will give you just as much goosebumps as the SMT. (if you ...

Re: Acerbis dual road handguards

I do not have them and/or tried them.

But those would solve the problem with the handguards and cables. On the other hand I'm a little worried these will shake as they are not mounted on 2 points? Or am i just paranoid?

I am interested in this topic.
