Re: New Member + suspension question

The suspension is electronic, so purchasing after market would be difficult without causing fault code problems. I'm 75 kgs and find the spring rate pretty good for fast touring, but not firm enough for full out sports riding, but having said that i have no trouble keeping up with the 1290R SD. Have...

Re: Different front brake pads?

Thanks for the insights DaveNZ and Aussie Dave. My rear master cylinder is not malfunctioning. I only have 2080km on my 2019 SDGT so far. Perhaps I need to temper my expectations on the rear brakes. Coming from a 2017 Ducati Supersport which I felt had great rear brakes but the comparison is not fa...

Re: Post your GT photos.....

On a recent IMOC ride, you will notice the GT hiden amongst all the Italian bikes. Great 2 day mid winter ride, no rain just a little fog.

Re: Rottweiler Fuel Dongle harness access

I noticed the same thing vinjah, how much smoother the throttle and fueling were, i think refitting the O2 sensors would just make the bike run slightly lean again, there was a trick with fitting copper washers to the O2 sensor tho, could try that, but prob not worth the hassle.

Re: Different front brake pads?

Sorry can't help you there, my original pads are still in the bike after 30K, i find them ok, I'm not a huge user of the rear brake, as long as it holds me on a hill, but be careful, you don't want a rear brake with bite, the rear is easy to lock up

Re: 2017 vs 2019?

7K cheeper for the 4000mile 2017 sounds a good deal, you can get the 2019 suspension maps fitted into the 017 model, and with the money you save you could pick up a used 790. win win.

Re: New to the forum

I did a KTM track day, and rode most sessions with to guys who race 390s, we had so much fun battling each others, those 390s are very quick through the corners, but id get then exiting corners and down the straights. most fun I've ever had on the track. Light weight bikes are fun.

Well said DaveNZ :D
Yes, I agree with you.
Thanks
Enjoy your bike, great way to get into team orange, KTM make great real world bikes, and theres a great stepping stone range. The 790 is one fabulous bike if your ever moving up the CC stakes. Ride safe. Dave.
