Re: Converting a 1290 GT into 1290 R?

The R tank wouldn't fit, as the GT tank is huge to fit over all the extra shit the GT has. Mounting points are also different. Your best bet is either to get the GT tank plastic welded if possible. The next problem would be the GT suspension, its soft and suited to fast touring, and its not really p...

Re: GT and the Booster Plug.

10mins for the 1290, and 15mins for the 790. I think time is to get the motor up to temp so that the fans turn on.

Re: New member from Devon, UK

Just to be clear about the U.S. denouncing climate change. It's really only one person. Yes, I get that he is the boss right now. But we do have term limits. If we could just get a short lived recession to start in late summer, it could be just one term. I had my fingers crossed for impeachment, bu...

Re: KTM SDGT Lean Angle Lights to Running Lights

I think constant running lights (not headlights) are illegal here in NZ, and would probably fail a WOF.

Re: Gearing Ratio's for SDGT's

I replaced my chain and front sprocket at 30,000kms mainly because i had a big bike tour ahead and didn't want to risk a stretched worn chain ruining my ride. But i made a little mistake of ordering a DID chain in the stock length, (114 links) so i couldn't fit my 41 rear tooth sprocket on, so had t...

Re: Fuel Injection info from Booster Plug - a good read.

I picked up a nice trick to make refitting the tank easier. first time refitting was a nightmare, so bloody difficult. Second time a breeze. the side ways fitting bolts that hold the tank on go into a clip on nut, second time i left the 2 clip on nuts off, fitted tank easily, then i slid the 2 clip ...

Re: Fuel Injection info from Booster Plug - a good read.

Well a bit cooler today so took the GT on one of my much travelled roads. With the Booster connected i wanted see if i notice much difference. Yip i did. the O2 sensor removal kit i had was smoother on constant low throttle, but now once the bike hit 3500-4000 revs she pulls much harder with the boo...

Re: 2017 Fueling

There are a few things you can do to help low rev fueling like the Booster plug. My bike has always fuelled well, pre exhaust modifications and afterwards with the O2 sensor removal kit, and now have fitted the Booster plug. May be its your gas, you could try running injector cleaner through it, and...

Re: Fuel Injection info from Booster Plug - a good read.

Sleeve, thats a great idea PK1, mine does touch the plastic body work, so i can easily cut the zip tie and fit a small piece of tubing just to hold it off the plastic. Cheers bro. :)

Re: 27,000kms and all is good

Ive ordered a booster plug now Dave of eBay. For some reason it added GST to the order, prob for our end now as GOV put GST on all overseas orders, where once it was only on orders over $400. $274 all up, so pricy but will pay for its self in fuel saving and smoother running hopefully, Cheers for yo...
