Re: Headlamp and Daytime Running Lights

There were some questions the other day on one of the fb pages about the DRL on the GT...DRL: OFF-Low beam will be burning all the time and the LED element will be illuminated as well. DRL:ON-Low beam will be off and the LED above the headlight will be 4X brighter than when the low beam is off. I wa...

Fuel hose recall...

So I went to the KTM web tool to check on the Brembo recall and it said "No recalls / safety warnings for your VBK number." So then I decided to check the NHTSA sight and I get..."Apr 03,2017 Manufacturer Recall NumberTB 1711 NHTSA Recall Number17V194 Recall StatusRecall Incomplete" Now the dealer s...

Re: No start?

Has plenty of gas; filled up at favorite BP station last week on the way home. Good question, tho'. Called the dealer this afternoon. He said try charging the battery. Even though battery is strong enough to turn the engine over, and get it to cough, it may not be turning fast enough to start and r...

Re: No start?

My 2016 SDGT wouldn't start today. 2800 miles, no problems before. Been colder than normal here, but bike is parked inside garage, where it's never cooler than 50°F. Engine turns over, coughs once, then dies. Attempts to restart have same result: crank, cough, die. Crank, cough, die. No hints on di...

Re: Bike shuts off at low speed when cold and downshift to 1st

i have a '17 GT that has never had a cold start/run issue but it did quit a few times and to be honest I thought it might be my technique so I started to really be aware of what I was doing. i quit once in a slow left turn with traffic approaching. I brought it in and they pulled codes and nothing r...

Re: 2017 fuel pump recall

Yep, I had mine done last week. There are also service bulletins for a ECU update and protective sticker on the swingarm to stop the exhaust flap cables rubbing the paint. I have a GT and was advised that the fuel pump was not a recall but more life a TSB. I wish i would have got a copy of the pape...

Re: It quit...but did refire!

I went to the dealer yesterday and the replaced the fuel pump under warranty. Made a few bonus points with the KTM tech by having almost no fuel in it...said he appreciated that. Hopefully it takes care of the issue

Re: Tell me it is a bad idea..

I was pretty excited about my wife doing some soloing on the GT and I thought that of the bug really hit hard we could look at a 790 Duke for her...the bug does not seem to be biting as hard as I would like and with the rices falling on the GT, it would probably be a smarter buy to get another GT fo...
