Re: Front header turning red @ warmup

Yes, here in the states, we have 10 percent ethanol in our fuel. I try to avoid it. Never heard about the fuel filter going bad that quickly, I'll have to check it. I had the fuel line issue and master cylinder issue fixed under recall.. I started with carbureted bikes! I know what you're saying lo...

Re: super semi active comfidence

GT1290?? they are a very good handling motorcycle, the Semi active suspension is very good, but not brilliant, there is room for improvement on the first (2016) GTs, a little more rear rebound dampning would go along way to improving it, but over all, a great handling motorcycle. (in sport mode :D )

Re: 2019 KTM SDGT Photo's are Out

In stead of paying the big bucks to up grade to the 2019 model, i used the same amount of cost $s difference to buy a 2016 MV Rivale..........its putting a big smile on my dial. it was a 59th birthday present to myself.

Re: Does anyone know how to stop pillion head butt?

Sometimes i just pull the clutch in and change gear, that way its a smoother disengage, if your using your brake to disengage the cruise control, then your passenger will head but you as theres no throttle, just engine braking.

Re: Booster plug

I asked this question on SuperDuke.Net, and got no replies. I think it tricks the airbox temperature sensor in thinking the air temp is cooler, causing the ecu to up the fueling ratio. Ive heard of mixed results on guys posting on other makes of bikes. You could be our tester. :D

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

Ill be watching Bathurst Dave, with 2 kiwi boys up front in the points championship, this race will probably determine the winner. Hoping for Shell Ford win. Just watching the ABs verse the South Africans, great game so far, very nerve racking.

Re: Dyno map on gt with decat

I see its 143 HP at 8500 revs, the GT revs to 10,000 but would peak around 9500, so still a few more HP there. My ex 1290R with mapping and link pipe and Acra dynoed to 164, the GT feels a good 10 HP less, so my thoughts are its around 150hp at 9500 revs.

1000kms so far on the PR5s, and I'm sold on them, even on a touring GT you can run them to the edge with confidence, love them so far.

Re: Help required O2 sensor delete now error code

You will notice the GT is much nicer down low in the rev's around town, especially sport mode, where i think the engine runs the nicest. Now that the bike has a little more juice % down low, id put some injected cleaner through the system every 2000kms or so, just to keep everything nice and clean, ...
