Re: Need meat in the middle for a longer lasting tire!

My Angel GTs were nearly dead after 5500km Also had a nasty cut on the rear tyre so changed to Roadtech01 after so many had good feedback. Was intrigued by the T31s (also had a 30€ cash back) as I loved my T30EVOs Now I am nearly at 13k km with 360° riding including highway dashes at over 160kph, A...

Re: Had to leave bike at the dealer...

^^ Warped rotors should be covered, Ducati replaced lots of these on there Street Fighters. it seems the quality of rotors across lots of bike manufactures is of poor quality, Aprilia's suffer from warped rotors also. Brembo build to a price, KTM put the best M50 callipers on the 1290s then shit dis...

Re: Different front brake pads?

Sounds like a warped disc, keep pushing for a warrantee claim, I've heard of a few 1290Rs having warped disc's.

The PR5s felt quite good, but an expensive scrubbing in trip.

Re: PR5s

Hey DaveW i got the 2 sets of PR5s delivered to my door for $1000, 500 each set, they are cheeper than the PR4s, from what I'm hearing they have more carbon and less silicone on the shoulders for better dry side grip, which i think will overcome the PR4s shortcomings. Im going to run them on both my...

Re: Fork seal gone

Dasjefe, that makes sense, regarding some defect. All my Japanese bikes of the past didn't seem to have this issue (well, maybe many many miles and wheelies later that is) but this is a new bike. I'll try that, but I think I'm going to shoot an email to KTM too, about this issue. I also had a prelo...

I fitted a Remus link pipe and servo stopper shortly after I got the bike and all was good. After a few weeks I started gettin...

Re: Flashing E Realy Means One Gallon Left!!

It states the GT holds 23 litres, i once did 70Kms after the warning light started flashing, i put 22.5 litres in, so i must have been near to fumes. On my 1290R it stated 18 litres, i ran it dry and it took 18.8 litres, so KTMs seem to hold more than whats stated, which is a good thing, my last V4 ...

Re: Post your GT photos.....

And at the end of the road is Milford Sound, incredible stunning place, mountains reach out from the sea, then the Homer tunnel on the way out. i can't wait to do it again next year.
