Re: Top box carrier max load?

Does anybody know the recommended max load for the top box carrier? I’ve done a trip with top box full 48 ltr and also fairly heavy bag strapped on top, seems to be a fair bit of flex on the carrier arms . Was just a bit worried about hitting a pothole, if it would cope with the weight. Hopefully d...

Re: Fork seal gone

Ive only had the DES fault come up once, it was after a 220Km ride over fast windy and bumpy roads while being chased by 2 1290Rs, it occurred when we stopped for gas next to our accommodation, i parked it up for the night and in the morning it was gone, and never returned since. Interesting I was ...

Wiped it off and didn't see anymore but havne't had a chance to ride the bike since do to the never ending rain. Not sure if having that bit of ooz...

Re: Exhaust Servo

I own a 2017 KTM Super Duke GT. To date, there is no one that has a dongle to replace the servo motor. I have looked extensively and have not found a manufacturer to date. Dave at Rottweiler advised me that a lot of performance parts aren't being made for the GT because there isn't a demand and, in...

Re: Fork seal gone

Thanks for the response. I was basically told my fork seals aren't bad enough to be covered - if I wanted a fix KTM would pay for the parts but I'd be stuck with the labor. This comes to about 230 bucks. I will probably just let it weep for a while... I can live with it unless it gets worse. Good l...

Re: KTM Top Case

I will probably get rid of the canister. I've read up on a couple of options. Any suggestions. I went with the Rottweiler Performance SAS Stage 2 kit. Works really well. I'd also recommend getting the fueling dongles and finding/buying some threaded plugs for the O2 sensors holes. The dongles trick...

Re: Exhaust valve dongle

I just purchased the little cam provided by Rottweiler , works great in fooling the Ecu ,no error codes. Yes i used one (cam) on mine for 22,000Kms with no problem. And Andy i had my O2 sensors removed, and the first batch of ESE failed on my bike causing multiple faults, MK 2 ESE works perfectly.

Re: Fuel Tank Removal, Emissions equipment removal for GT

Just admiring your bike Andy, Full system-nice, i see you fitted the ESE, hiding the plug is awkward, i see you zip tied it to the frame, i made a bracket up for the rear brake fluid container, looks similar to yours, did you do the rotweiler O2 sensor removal plus and dongles?, seems to help with t...

Re: MTC Failure Disaster

Glad to hear your GT is up and running Jfink, especially now your summer is drawing closer. Ha! Thanks Dave, but In this part of Texas, summer is when most folks STOP riding. I missed the best part of the riding year earlier, but hopefully the good weather will return this fall. The SD is running g...

Re: Seven warranty claims, and counting

Only the broken stand Spur for me, the bike is waiting for the brake recall, so far 24,000Kms and the bike has been faultless, panniers work brilliant also, no leaks in a 130Km pouring down trip.

Re: Exhaust valve dongle

The replacement ESE has arrived and been fitted, 150K test ride and all works perfectly. It also came with 2 O2 sensor removal plugs, but I had already fitted these, Rottweiler supplied these as they help compensate for the low down leanness. YAY.

Re: Exhaust valve dongle

Yes I’ve got an email saying they are sending me a new ESE. Cool, hope this one works. They ask if I have the O2 sensors connected, which I don’t, I’ve removed the SAS system as you need to for the removal of the CAT and exhaust valve.
