Re: Well, This happened (Updated)

The DB killer for the Hi-Slung isn't much of a killer. I experimented a little & modified it. Had the noise down to where I could handle it. BUT. It was also a noticeable reduction in power. I would think that the dual pipe could be toned down & muted a little & still give good exhaust flow. Quieter...

Re: Well, This happened (Updated)

Here is video walk around-> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0w7fXnn4ZfU I like it. Now if they could quiet it down a bit. (Utube videos don't give a real indication of how loud exhausts are.) Id consider buying one. I do have the Hi-slung sitting in my garage. http://i.imgur.com/IR6IlVeb.jpg Love t...

Re: Removing and replacing the rear wheel spindle nut ?

A electric or air impact works best for removal.
Your friends idea makes sense.

Looking good. A full side view(front wheel straight) exhaust side looks best. Stock mirrors look huge.

Re: Hold on 2017 SDR release?

Well, I got the AR Link Pipe and ST Range Hi Mount Can installed, m initial impressions are that the throttle responses is a lot quicker, super crisp sounding, instantaneous. It's also loud as fuck. Due to the rain I have yet to take it out for a test drive to see if in fact the Akra Map with Stock...

Re: Duke, Diavel and Vmax comparo

Yes I understand that. And me judging my bikes power by its wheelie ability isn't the best way to get the truth about its power. In a quarter mile race the SDR would gets its ass kicked by many bikes with less HP. Install the air intake, PCV & pipe on your bike. It will put a big smile on your face....

Re: Duke, Diavel and Vmax comparo

If your SDR wont wheelie at the snap of your wrist in 4th gear with stock gearing your missing part of your Beast.
Add the Rotty or MH airbox, PCV & open up your exhaust then tell us Mr Max is the boss.

Re: Hold on 2017 SDR release?

Not that I am a authority on oils,, BUT. I will assume KTM uses a break in oil. Non synthetic. I wouldn't change it until at least 3 - 400 miles. Let things seat a little B4 using synthetic. The rest of the shit needing to be done is minor. The shift light is just a light, isn't it, it doesn't affec...

^^ Frick. 4 that I seen. One new 2016 for 14999 OBO.
Not sure why so many. It sure isn't because of the abundance or super low price on the 2017s

Re: Track Days on a SD-GT

You can apply your own settings tbh. Problem is that its within the parameters of load, and comfort/street/sport damping. It doesnt have the fine tuning possibilities that would be ideal and some other systems have. So far my best setting is Sport, 1 rider plus luggage. The bike seems to sit right ...

Re: 2002 ZX-12R Fork Seal Replacement

I think U did fine. Your just changing seals. Ride each one like a pogo stick until U feel the damping working. Just for the hell of it. Close both C & R valves & see how restrictive it gets. That's a $250 + job when u take them into dealership. Probably $400 if U let them pull the wheel & forks. Ri...

Re: New guy

550 SXV. I had one. For a 550 they scoot around nicely. BUT, the 1290 has 2.5 x more HP.
As Nite said "your in for a bad time" This bike wont settle U down. Guaranteed.
