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: Fork seal gone

Cheers mate.... :) I'm used to Japanese stuff and they never leak (err, unless the tube is pitted by a stone chip etc then you get a proper 'leak' all down the fork leg and onto the brake pads :x )..but I have seen the odd faint weep ring...which usually goes away quickly.....but not on a KTM it se...

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.

Re: New GT

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...

Re: New GT

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...

Re: Getting a Grip on Fuel Range.....3.5Ltrs reserve or not?

Ive recently done my 7500 K oil change, i went for 10W40 motul 300, next change for me 15,000 I'm confident quality oil can do 7500Ks, especially when they say 15,000 between oil changes, oil has come along way. I've now done 11,300, and i reckon the suspension just keeps getting better. Oh PS Dave,...

Re: Getting a Grip on Fuel Range.....3.5Ltrs reserve or not?

After doing 265 fast Ks, and the low warning fuel light coming on as i got home, i put 18.5 litres in today. i didn't take any notice of Ks left to empty, but id say i had 4.5 litres left or aprox 75ks. My 1290R said the tank held 18 litres, well from bone dry to full it took 18.8 litres. so KTM act...

Re: Hard Suspension

Good to hear the QS can be fine tuned, hit a couple of false neutrals when really nailing the bike in Austria (coming back from Stelvio to Vipiteno..). Not a huge biggy but unpleasant when timing it for oncoming traffic. An inexperienced biker might panic though. All quick shifters require a positi...

Re: Hard Suspension

I'm still in the hard suspension group now after more than 3000 miles. I don't know about this "break in" theory for the forks I've had dozens of bikes and never had to break in the suspension before. There's not that many moving parts in there just doesn't make sense to me. At any rate I'd have to...

Re: Hard Suspension

I regularly get 2/3 movement in the forks, and in sports mode i get a little more. (20mm untouched) Sports mode lets the forks dive further under braking, and touring and street mode up the compression under braking to reduce fork dive. . That seems to be way more travel than I have been able to ac...

Re: Remus link pipe

There seems to be a few problems with the starters, theres been a few guys here having problems, i think its a part replacement, so warranty issue. as for your fault code (MTC) if you have the little cam (Remus)in the right position, leav it there, mine threw a fault code, i walked away under frustr...

Re: MTC Failure What Do You Think?

I get the feeling the the sensor that oversees the exhaust valve operation could be quite sensitive, just a minor bit of restriction on the valve may trigger the MTC warning, but as above, if yo let the bike sit for 20 mins, and if there is no actual problem with the value action, the warning goes a...

Re: MTC Failure What Do You Think?

97 miles on the clock first ride out since bringing the bike home, turn the ignition off, i wasnt happy with the lack of lean on the bike on the side stand (it seems rather high after my last bike that leant right over) so I turn the ignition back on to ride 10 yards to a shallower camber and the m...
