Re: PR5s

Dropped in to my local KTM service guys again...... asking if they knew if the 2019 suspension software could be downloaded to the 016-018 GT's (they didn't know yet...... as I suspected)..... but I asked if they were selling plenty of PR5's for SDR/GT's and they said "hell yeah"...... our biggest ...

That is horrendous news, what a waste. All the very best to you and your family.
Thanx Mick, much appreciated. He was the baby of the family, the youngest of 8 children. Im going to miss him. As much as he was a pain in the arse, i got many laughs from him.

Im so glad for you Dave, firstly that you got the life saving treatment. I got a call yesterday morning from my sister inlaw to say my youngest brother had died, he has had a year of heart problems, due to a botched shoulder operation that never happened, his heart stopped for 25 minutes while he wa...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

With 4 bikes to ride my GT can sit for 2 weeks at a time, 3 weeks and it struggles to start, but does start eventually, so once a week i put the battery tender on it over night (my battery tender services 4 bikes). Damp cold air drains batteries fast, and the GT uses power while idle. But Rock, glad...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Does your solenoid click when the key and ignition is turned on, if the battery is low, the solenoid just clicks, check the connections are tight on it also.

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Its looking more like a dead battery, but the bike should of started with jumper leads on the terminals, have you checked the main fuses?? removing a battery could have earthed the pos and blown a fuse.

You may have a dud battery, it happens, I've had a few, even brought new they were a dud, earth connections, make sure theres no paint stopping a good earth, stand sensor? not sure if they have a tip over sensor? check that, and the obvious kill switch. top or bottom shouldn't matter with the cables...

Re: PR5s

Rock, the PR5's are a large step up from the PR4's, They match the 4's in the wet, but are far away better in the dry, their edge grip is great, no vagueness or squirming on the throttle compared to the 4's. I wasn't a big fan of the OEM Angels, they were ok, but the PR5s are a far better all-round ...

Re: PR5s

Is there much benefit to waiting on the Road 5 GT's? I am on Diablo Corsa #'s and they are pretty good...next set will be the Road 5's. And then I will be going to the Angel GT's again because I assume they are still the OEM tire for the GT The PR5s are a good step up from the the Angels. Angels ha...
