Re: Would you change an SMT for a 1090 Adventure

Well said! Changed even KTM waterpump finally and it is good to go. Actually was interesting to drive after long time again with SMT, but it was not any kind of drop in rideability. City, smaller roads more fun and flickable. One riding mode (no abs) is perfect. Open roads and distance not so. Ok, D...

Re: Would you change an SMT for a 1090 Adventure

3 weeks riding with Multi, and it is actually very, very fast and has great suspension. 2up worse than smt, since passenger sits so high, at city this causes falling risk. Felt short love to bike and its looks, but it has to go on spring, and trusty SMT keeps going. SMT does not look how good bike i...

Re: Would you change an SMT for a 1090 Adventure

With Finnish tax level, bikes are very expensive. Only could see to use the Multi new sales price to correspond priced. Being KTM 1190 adv, or maybe even BMW nine T, which is completely different, but attractive since I’m not touring, and like nice bikes. SMT is the most probable option, since it ti...

Re: Would you change an SMT for a 1090 Adventure

Thank you, very good points and need to consider again on spring. Possible motor failure by Ducati pricing would be a disaster? At the same time the Ducati sales price on spring will bring nice profit. Let’s see how nice red colour and gold Öhlins look like on spring sun :D

Re: Would you change an SMT for a 1090 Adventure

Thanks for the feedback, and since I can still decide: which faults did you have in Multi? Mine 2011. Duc reliability as Italian quality is also my main concern, since KTM is so analog, and after lot’s of easy repairs of wearing parts at first, it has been reliable, and can now fix those small thing...

Re: Would you change an SMT for a 1090 Adventure

Yeah, had a good ride on wknd, and Ducati is similar type, but very torquyi and easily revving engine, heated grips, electrical öhlins, adjustable traction control and slipper clutch, wider bars, adjustable and good screen, better Brembo’s.. At city SMT is more flickable, but since Duc was eventuall...

Re: Would you change an SMT for a 1090 Adventure

Funny thing happened, test rode Multi S 2 months ago, and the seller called suddenly and dropped price so low that had to buy instantly. Now with 2 bikes and one have to go on spring. Multi has electrical öhlins, and better modulation brakes and more torque and hp, at the same time ride position is ...

Re: Throttle Body Balance

Tune ecu worked for balancing. However, see my 2 years old thread about vibrations: check tightness of all engine bolts, clutch installation bolts inside, rear sprocket damped fixing points-change bolts and pushings if sprocket moves by hand, new fuel filter, and yes, take secondaries away and use o...

Re: Would you change an SMT for a 1090 Adventure

But without torque. Tested mt09 and after smt it is quite breathless low down. Also, in Finnish technic magazine they did endurance test for mt09, and after 30-40 k kms, the motor was opened, and valves etc were shot. Yamaha never sent official reply even, when they sent the full motor to factory. A...

Re: Would you change an SMT for a 1090 Adventure

Take the 1090 r model. Without r the suspension is very far from smt quality level other than in smooth roads. Bike is also much longer and not so nimble

Re: How much louder is a Rottweiler than the stock intake?

First it felt too loud, but I got use to it fast, and would not change the noice level back. Having stock silencers, and it is very nice now. Other benefits are so substantial that you won’t regret.

Re: Clutch /engine problem LC8

Without seeing any pictures etc.. just as an idea of potential warranty case: maybe they did put the chain as too tight in service, and too tight chain bended the drive shaft / bearing damage and started the unlucky event. Chain should really be quite loose at the right setting.

Re: Head bearing

It is probably shot. If there still is loose feeling after nstalling new bearing, the next maintenance is fork and especially fork bushings. Did both after 20 k kms and it is like new now. And rear shock maintenance since nitrogen charge will leak out. :D

Would be interested of getting Alexx's map, since I live in Helsinki and seem to have the same set-up in SMT. I did pm you.

Re: New chain/rear sprocket pitch query.....

-1 up front is already quite a big change, if you drive a lot in highway speeds (yes, it changes more 6th gear, than first gears). I would prefer to increase 1 or 2 tooth at rear, but it seems very difficult to find those sprockets. Anyway with air intake mods and mapping, the need to change ratio i...

Re: Stalling problem!

My bike was tried to steal, and they destroyed the ignition lock. Insurance covered it, and was replaced as other locks in the bike. No stalling after that? Earlier it did it once a day at least. Could it had been the immobiliser in the old lock?

Re: Stalling problem!

I have the same problem. I suspect that the clutch is dragging sometimes, for some reason, and this causes stalling when gear is engaged and clutch is pulled in trafic lights. Some air in clutch or something else? If I idle at neutral, no stalling problem.

Re: Catastrophic front brake failure

My brakes were pulsing ar 20k last summer. Tried all the tricks with rotating buttons etc. Discs were worn a bit more in the center, but free movement in buttons enabled disc move a bit and then the groove in disc forms oval when rotating. This will pulse what ever you do. New EBC discs from ebay, a...
