Re: Advice on tuning

I'm interested as well. Though I doubt if there's anyone close that's a KTM street guru based on how far all the dealerships are.

Throttle Body Adjustment

I hope this can help make doing the throttle body adjustment easier for someone else. Had a bitch of a time figuring out how to access the adjustment screw with the tank in place. I already had two different styles of adjustment drivers, both the flex shaft driver and rigid driver with the 90 degree...

Re: Lights on

same thing with my bike 3 weeks ago at work, so finished early to take it home before the battery went flat. On the way home the right indicator kept turning itself on and the left wouldn't work at all and about 300 metres from home a warning message of "GENERAL FAILURE " came up on the dash. I've ...

Re: Lights on

nick280, The exact same thing happened to mine today after I washed it. Tried everything but disconnecting the battery to get it to go off. After about 30 minutes it started turning off when I would flip on the high beam switch. Not long after that it turned off on it's own. It's done it a couple ti...

Re: Reset service indicator

I've been trying to figure out this on my '17 SuperAdventure R ...... the video instructions do not work. WTF! Try following this, it worked on my '17 SDR even though he's on a 690. I think it works with all the bikes with the new tft displays. Make sure the ignition is off. https://www.youtube.com...

Re: Service Light Reset and 600 Mile Service procedures

I FOUND THAT SHIT! Man, this has been bugging me. Follow the guy in the video resetting the service counter on his 690 Duke, it worked on my '17 1290 SDR.

Maybe he traded on a 17?
I did the same thing, got all excited then saw the other post of his. I'll try it again, could be I'm doing something wrong.

Re: Service Light Reset and 600 Mile Service procedures

Can this be turned off by the owner? If so how? Also, does anyone know exactly what is done at the standard 600 mile service? I've already changed my oil and filters twice, have "Nut and Bolted" the bike a few times, does the dealer do anything special? I've been trying to figure out the service re...

Re: Hold on 2017 SDR release?

I called KTM customer support yesterday, they suggested Motorex Sport Max 10w40 for break in. I was also told there is no way to reset the service counter without taking it to a dealer. I really hope someone figures that one out because that's pretty shitty in my opinion.

Re: Hold on 2017 SDR release?

I think this method only works for the '14-'16 models. At least I can't get it to work on mine. Please let us know if anyone gets this to work on their '17.

Has anyone figured this out on the 2017's yet? I tried the '14-'16 method but no luck.

Glad to hear someone else is having trouble sticking to break in rules.

I agree about the rear brake, it's almost worthless.

Re: Hold on 2017 SDR release?

Not two hours later I received a call from my salesman. He told me that they just received the mail and in it there was an invoice for my SDR in BLACK!! Then he proceeded to tell me to not get hung up on what is said on "blogs". Long story short; we'll see what actually arrives in a few days at the...

Re: Hold on 2017 SDR release?

If the black SDR's three plastic panels are available, I might install them for a unique color combo. The white sub-frame might also get gray or orange paint. Good idea, I think would be an awesome color combination with the sub-frame gray. I was considering painting the fender the same color as th...

I was shooting the shit with the salesman yesterday and he happened to mention that he thought the black ones weren't going to be available for quite a while. That was the first I heard that the black ones weren't part of the initial round. He said he had a customer that wanted one after seeing my w...

Re: Hold on 2017 SDR release?

So they weren't available yet?? They're available, they just couldn't give discounted pricing (since I purchased the bike there) without knowing their cost. I didn't push it because I'm in no rush. He said it's just a matter of calling KTM for an unlock code and hooking it up to the computer. They ...
