DID chain.

Well i have a 6000km NZ South Island ride coming up so i decided at 32,000kms to replace the chain and front sprocket. The stock chain and to my amazement the front sprocket were still in great condition. Oh well they are new now. I got a 112 link DID chain, but it wouldn't fit over my aftermarket 4...

Re: Seven warranty claims, and counting

Update: I started this thread in May 2018. Well, it's now almost a year and a half later, and I'm happy to report that my bike has been totally trouble free. With a bit over 12,000 miles on the odometer, all I have done is oil changes and tire replacements. I had to take a few months off from ridin...

Re: Hello from Lake Wylie SC

I’m new to KTM this year. I’ve been street riding for 25 years and moved over from cruisers to sport riding 4 years ago. I’ve tried and owned many bikes to get to where I am now for what I like to do. I added a 790 Duke in February for day sport ridding and replaced my two BMWs (R1200R & S1000XR) w...

Re: Hello From the Great Northwest

Hi Dave, Thanks for the information. So far, I have not had any issues with the right-hand switch block but will keep an eye on it. When I took it in for the 1000km service I asked the tech to check for any recall notices and there were none. Just curious why you run 35f and 37r when the recommende...

Central North Island.

A stop on our way to classic bike racing. On top of Vinegar hill. MT Tongariro and Ruapehu in the foreground. MT Taranaki to the left but not in shot. Great warm spring day.

Re: F1 light on after sas removal and dongle fitted

Ride it a short distance (10 kms) turn off, wait turn back on and ride home. Bike may need to tune in to new set up.

Re: F1 light on after sas removal and dongle fitted

If you google the Rottweiler kit for SAS removal, you will see 2 dongles from memory.

Re: A few questions, uk. Help

Is it not possible to just blank off the hole where it draws air from and leave the system in place? Would it still throw a code? Has anyone tried it? Removing the full system cures any faults if you use the Rottweiler dongle, saves about 1 kg in weight, it also frees up room under the seat. The sy...

Re: A few questions, uk. Help

I've got the ESE coming, and the fuel dongles. Will I need an extra dongle for the sas removal? I have blocked them off in the past leaving them in place, can i do that with this bike until I get some plates and extra dongle if needed?? You have me worried now about riding it. I'm hoping the ESE ar...

Re: A few questions, uk. Help

Remember if you are removing the CAT, you need to do the SAS removal, as you will get popping on decel, the SAS system is there to help the CAT burn clean and hot, without the CAT it produces a pop crackle, prob not good for valves. The ESE works great. In the early days before it was available, Rem...

Re: A few questions, uk. Help

Some SuperDuke parts fit, but most don't. Best place for SAS removal is Rottweiler, and also O2 sensor removal, everything they have supplied have worked perfectly so far. As for the air filter, the stock one is very good and will last till 30,000km service, even then they didn't replace mine as it ...

Re: New owner

Wellcome Cr333 . Not much traffic here lately but guys pop it regularly. The Diavel goes very well, but the GT is a far better bike, fast touring, and some sporting ability. Good luck with your GT and enjoy it, they are pretty awesome bikes.

Re: Sporty tyres

Yeah to be honest I actually only got 6K out of the stock pirelli rubber. I’ll be interested to hear how the contis go. I’ve got a set of Michelin power RS on now, and doing the track day on Friday. Woot! Got the suspension ECU upgrade too so looking forward to seeing how that pans out. I have to r...

Re: Ducati 1260 vs sdgt 19?

I have a 2010 Multistrada, done 82,000kms on it, and i love that bike. I brought the 1290GT as a replacement bike for the Muti, but the wife didn't like the KTM as much as the Duc, so i kept both. Both have their strong points, the Multi has Ohlins TTX suspension, and its amazing on the back roads i...

Re: Sporty tyres

30,000 Kms and I'm on my 6th set of tires, and about to try a set of Conti's i got 5000kms out of the stock tires. 6000 out of the PR5s (rear maybe 7-8000), 3200 out of M7RRs, soft sports tires don't last long on the GT. Hoping for 6K from the Cont's.
