Re: RC8R 2012

Idea behind getting it is to replace my SD on the track and occasional canyon carving. I think i will go for it, so hard to resist. And after onwning only KTM's since I started riding, I'm not too confident switching to something else to be honest.

RC8R 2012

Hey guys, I'd need your opinion on small dilemma I have. Recently I got a chance to snatch 2012 RC8R with 6000 KM on the clock, previous owner couldn't get used to it after switching from inline 4. Now, I'd like to hear your opinion on reliability and common faults that I should know about before bu...

Re: Seat height adjustment

Thanks. Friend of mine mentioned that he was adjusting his on Duke 690R and, but I might have misunderstood that, he was probably referring to lower suspension setup calling it "seat height adjustment". I'll go for PP seat , i know it should be 20 mm taller than stock. Suspension tech will set sag s...

Bike stalling constantly after remapping

I have just remapped my SD1290 with the dealer, and right after I took it it started stalling on me at low rpm. I give it 4-5 min to warm up when i start it before I go usually. Sometimes it happens in the middle of the ride when I pull the clutch in, shifting for example, which scares mi a lot when...

Re: KTM Factory contact

got it sorted already. IT's bullshit how these idiots put off so many people from even owning KTM bike in Dubai, let alone service one there. Shame for the brand shame for people not to enjoy the bikes they really want to ride and go for second choice. BMW is running amazing business over here thank...

KTM Factory contact

Hey guys, I am looking for a mail from any department in factory in Austria regarding complaint I have bout my dealer in Dubai, UAE.

Running it lean

Hey guys, recently I installed Bodis decat and removed SAS system from the duke, and as to everybody else, engine light is flashing. Now, I know it is because of fueling, so my question is, is there any danger running it lean for a long time without remapping? The thing is, the only mechanic I trust...

Licence plate light warning light

Hi guys, gotta question regarding warning light that came up on dash when I installed tail tidy without plate light on. Have no intentions of putting it on since it is not necessary here, but I would love to get that light of the dash. Old plate holder is gone along with the plate light ( bad decisi...

Re: Chattering on Decel

In my case it was absolutely the same, I tightened the chain tension last night, the bike runs like new again, no chatter no rattle or anything when I roll of the throttle. I guess in time it will come up again but with the torquey engine that it has I just might be what we have to live with.

Re: Akro slip on

Just installed Akra slip on today, of course, DB killer was out immediately. Didn't run it with DB killer on, neither I'm planing to check, but people say it sounds like stock can. Anyway, long story short, without DB killer, sound is much much better and deep. Had Akra slip ons on SD 990 before but...

Rear brake issue

Since I got the bike, I had this problem with rear brake. In both Supermoto and regular ABS modes, when I step on the brake, it feels faded from the start, and if I step a bit harder it just drops down and starts feeling like it's grinding on something (similar like gears grinding). Can it be the br...

Re: Chattering on Decel

Got my bike from the dealer today, they say they could not find any problems with it. I was there when they opened cylinder head, it looked clean as hell, no metal flakes in the oil, nothing. Manager of the service center is amateur racer, he test rode it and said that he couldn't hear the rattle. A...

Re: Chattering on Decel

I checked my final drive chain before taking the bike back to the dealer, it was within factory recommended slack. Guys from the workshop will let me know tomorrow what was the issue so I'll post it here.

Re: Chattering on Decel

Hey guys, I have similar problem with my 2015 SD 1290R. I got it like a week ago form the dealer, did a bit less than 500 km and noticed that around 400 km it started rattling on deceleration/engine braking. At first I thought it was a loose chain since the noise seemed to come from front sprocket a...
