Re: Acerbis Handguards

Acerbis hand guards fitted, my little mirror fitted on it, so a plus, and some bar risers from Hong Kong.

Re: Heated seats / Fuel 95 RON ? .. or some benefit from BP Ultimate 98 (Australia)

Hi Mark. I run my 1290GT on a mixture of 95 or 98,i don't really notice much difference, i guess there must a 3% gain. BP stations here are the only ones to sell 98, but i always put the 98 in when possible. Your milage sounds similar to what i got before i fitted the 40 tooth rear sprocket. theres ...

Re: Bodis vs Remus midpipe

My bike runs bloody well with the E4 crap removed, SAS block off plates fitted, remus cam-link and exhaust pipe, Rotweiler stage 2 kit and the Rotweiler o2 removal kit. i had no problem running with these guys on sports bikes.

Re: Bodis vs Remus midpipe

Luismna, the advice id give, before you remove any of the E4 crap, as it all works together, SAS, CAT, Carbon canister, and the 02 sensors, get a Remus link pipe and little cam that comes with it. (not a large expense) remove you cat exhaust and the exhaust valve cables, and the cable cam, fit the n...

Re: Let's see the GT's

2200Ks over 4 days of non stop windie roads, and riding with some fast bikes, the GT kept right up with the pace. the roadtec 02s were fantastic. Roadtec 02's? Metzelers? I might be mildly retarded, but I can't find anything on them. Do you have a link by any chance? Sorry Metzeler Roadtec 01s.

Re: Let's see the GT's

Great when you find tires that work for you, have you tried them in the wet yet? My bike is still in the dealers after my West Coast trip getting its suspension updated. These are brilliant tires when riding fast in tight twisty roads when you come in hot into a shaded corner and find it damp, I'm ...

Re: Bodis vs Remus midpipe

Hi guys, I need some advice :D My main target is to put off some weight (on the bike :D) and get a better sound out of the bike. The bike has an Akrapovic installed. I dont need more end power on the bike and what I really dont want is to lose that sweet low-mid torque, or have to spend hundreds of...

Re: Hard Suspension

akaramire, I've done many many miles on Angel GTs, I've always run them 34-35 psi front, and 36-38 rear. when i brought the GT, i didn't gel with the Angels on it. (i actually binned the bike) i never got the same confidence i had with the Angels on my Multi, i switched to the M7RRs, much better con...

Re: Hard Suspension

I just got home from a 2200K 4 day trip with 2 V4 1100 Tuono factories, a BMW 1000RR, and a KTM 1290R, at the start of the road trip, (a fuking fast road trip) i had power mode sport, and SUS setting in Street, rider + gear, and the rear of the bike wallowed something shocking in fast 140+K corners ...

Re: Fork seal gone

Strange because my first gen 16 bike has lush forks, I'm using 3/4 travel and feels great . Same as mine, if anything, i find the GTs suspension on the soft side, i think this is why I'm going through tires far faster than i did on the 1290R. May be just a few early models had something wrong with ...

Re: Fuel Tank Removal, Emissions equipment removal for GT

Its a good mod, I've done the same procedure, i used some of the original piping to fit on to the tank breather, and to lengthen the balance air tubes that go to the injectors. i used the Rottweiler stage 2 kit, and the 02 sensor removal plus from Rottweiler aso, the biggest bitch, is refitting the ...

Re: Decat

So the latest news is that the KTM ECU is more intelligent than life on earth! It wont take the "flash" and eliminate the exhaust servo! Back to square one! We are now cutting the exhaust valve out, and fitting it into the Remus intermediate pipe. Not perfect, but next best. Has anyone tried runnin...

Re: Bol D'Or

My wife has trouble also getting on the GT with the panniers fitted, she can't put her foot on her foot peg to get up, so she uses the riders foot peg, not ideal, but it works-just. i take her mainly on the Multistrada, and use the GT for my own solo touring trips.

I've got a Remus link pipe with my GT and with little cam Remus includes in the kit to replace the missing exhaust valve there is no issues. Works just fine,and no error codes. Similar, I've now done 10,000Ks with the Remus link and muffler, with the little cam fitted. i think the little cam is gen...

Congrats on your new GT Moggz, i also traded in my 1290R for the GT, still really happy with the GT. Mods I've done are the Rottweiler SAS removal system (stage 2), a Remus link pipe and can, O2 sensor removal kit, also Rottweiler supplied. Trex crank case protectors ( a must) just ordered some Acer...
