Re: Aftermarket LED signal light install

Ordered them from KTMWorld, Part numbers, 76014025000x2 and 76014026000x2 One thing this forum lacks is a "thumbs up" or "like" for others to "rate" posts that are appealing to other members. In it's absence I give you 5 stars, Captain. FYI the FHWSA are responsible for the USA not having allowed l...

Re: OpenFlash Tablet (My little review)

No problem. So far it looks like you and I are the only 2 keeping this thread going. When you get your tablet, post what you think. The more 1290 owners that decide on this tablet the better for all of us. Also, Shiv at OpenFlash is really good at answering questions. He may even be able to tweak t...

That looks good - not sure if you know or not, but KTM had a very, very, very similar kit available in 2014, and mysteriously it was discontinued after that model year.

You need to quit fucking around and get that money on the track!
J/k, I know that's your goal.

Re: bogging

Agree with Spiff. Especially if you dialed up the traction control to +8 from it's standard setting. Go the other direction -8 or simply turn it off. I wasn't setting the track on fire by any means, but I turned mine off because I have a first gen bike, there is no other way to avoid too much interv...

Re: Tail light plastic broken

Joe is correct. KTM in general is unlike most other brands, in so much as, ANY information, is not clearly communicated with their dealers or their customers. At least in the USA, not sure on other parts of the world. This board has a lot more information about our bikes than most, though you need a...

Re: ABS dongle

On my bike the abs light flashes when in smoto mode. If I am going to do a dongle I hope it shuts that off. I've not tried it with the dongle, but I DID try supermoto, before the dongle. I also tried ABS off before the dongle, and after the dongle, is where I've kept it - OFF. Both with and without...

Re: ABS dongle

Great news about the dongle. I had heard that street, sport and rain will be retained ( mine does that already), but MTC traction control will still reset. sounds like the bad gas flash for the adventure bikes. I have heard of that mistake being made before. I want the flasher auto turn off but im ...

Re: ABS dongle

so the dongle does keep the MTC setting off if thats where you set it? Ive heard so many mixed reviews. Yes, if you turn it off, the next time you start the bike, it will still be off, provided........you don't unplug the dongle, and possibly disconnect the battery. Mtc in rain will be rain, next t...

Re: ABS dongle

Does anyone out there have experience with a dongle to save the abs settings (my bike is a 17). I have been experimenting with the smoto setting, and think I like it. An unseen benifit is the MSR being shut off. Makes the bike feel much more natural to me. Unless I was touring or carrying a passeng...

Re: 2017 Stock Rims\Tires Value?

IDK if there's any differences (subtle or otherwise) with the 2nd gen vs 1st gen wheels other than there's a tpms onboard. That said, I priced a spare set of brand new OEM rims a couple of months ago, BUT - Fairly certain, you have to buy valve stems, sprocket, abs reluctor rings for f/r, and rotors...

Well guess what, my handlebar clamp was on backwards. :o I've never removed the handlebar clamp, so I guess the dealer employee put it on backwards, during the uncrating.
