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...

Re: Collected my bike today

Congrats on the new GT. This was my first non-Valkyrie bike and is a 2-up machine for weekend rides with my wife...SHE LOVES IT and she has even ridden it solo in a parking lot...
The torque is amazing...I am a giggling idiot after riding it.

o when I got my SUper Duke GT, it was my first EVER sport bike...and I enjoyed the discussions where hairs were being split on the pluses and minuses of different features on different bikes...but the BMW quickshifter is the shit...you have no idea how clunky the KTM's switchgear is until you use so...

I was going to wait for the Michelin Road 5 but I am not going to cheat my wife out of potentially 6 weeks of weekend riding so I am going to try a set of Pilot Road 4

Thoughts on new tires

I need tires and was going to wait until Michelin Road 5 became available but cant...will see what folks think of them and they may be my 3rd set...unsure what the 2nd set will be. Mileage is a consideration but not the primary one

My wife has expressed an interest to get back into riding her own bike. She used to have her own Valkyrie Tourer and now we have been 2-upping the GT for about 7 months...she did her first solo ride around a parking lot yesterday on the GT...I think a 790 would be great for her on our day rides...ge...
