Re: 2010 SMT has been in shop for six weeks!

Simple thing I’m not seeing is a coil pack swap between #1 & #2. If it fails again with an error and it’s followed the same coil, just replace it. You don’t know that the repair they did on the coil is good.

Re: Front Sprocket nut righty tighty lefty loosey?

100nm is the manual’s recommendation. I didn’t have an extension for my torque wrench so couldn’t get in there. Ended up gunning it back on [emoji23]

Re: Front Sprocket nut righty tighty lefty loosey?

It’s the usual lefty loosey. Mine took a 450nm electric impact gun and still didn’t budge for a while [emoji51]

Re: LIGHT Bulb for Auxilliary lights on SMT

No idea unfortunately, they were on the bike when I purchased it.

Re: LIGHT Bulb for Auxilliary lights on SMT

They’re LED and I believe, sealed units with no bulb replacement. You could just get a cheaper set, like my safego ones, and wire them up to the same wires for the same operation.

Re: HELP my bike is beeping

So what openings did the map have before. Maybe your flies were barely open, creating the whistling (big air, tiny gap). If opening the flies has cured it, I’d either leave them as they are or go back to the old map but increase the openings at that rpm range by 10% Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Re: HELP my bike is beeping

You’re right, that’d drive me mental. Sounds like a Girl Scouts whistle rather than a snarling beast.

I think you’ve got an air leak somewhere. Double check your air box fitment, check the rubbers around the throttle bodies too.

Re: Cheap air box that works

A foam filter will always break down eventually, but I’ve got 9000 miles on mine and no signs of it yet. Are you keeping it oiled enough? They’re not exactly expensive either so if I have to replace every 4-5 years, it’s not an issue. Cleaned mine last service and it came out fine. Sent from my iPho...

Re: Rear brake lever is contacting clutch case

It was indeed the bearings in the brake pedal. I purchased them from a KTM dealer. They come individually so order 2. Getting them in/out is fun [emoji19]

They do different angles so check your pipes with a protractor

Re: Akrapovic Noise Reduction Insert

PipeWerx make some aftermarket ones. They’re listed on eBay UK. Not sure about your side.

The sensor is in the headers so these exhausts would work

Re: Bike creeping when clutch pulled in?

Sounds like a blocked oil jet or it needs an oil change. Mine usually does this when it’s in need of an oil change. Oil change usually sorts it right out and neutral is easy to find again. I use 10w50 Castro Power One Racing. If it’s a blocked oil jet, that’s easy to do and many guides online. Sent ...

Re: Water pump impeller - destructive removal (60035055100)

That’s the good thing about these bikes, the fixes are all really cheap. Just placed an order for £10 last night, just for a few O-Rings and screws that I’m replacing.

Re: Exhaust Servo

Same as the Ducati exhaust valves. Only there for noise restriction for the testing. Does nothing for tuning power or exhaust flows.

Re: KTM 990 SM issues

Based on the latest error codes (the ones after the clear), I’d be looking at the Roll Over Sensor, which sits by the ECU just in front of the airbox.

I believe you can just remove this and try again.
