Dave if the suspension hasn't altered perhaps something else is making the suspension sit lower? :-)

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

Cheers Mick, no issue with the suspension...... ScottyUK (on the KTM forum site) was saying that he thinks his 17GT has been updated for suspension software as he has been using his 'comfort' setting more lately - without any pogo effects...... he is away on a trip so he will advise later..... but I...

Re: An accidental discovery re O2 sensors

Here's a pic for info..... most have probably spent a fortune on dongles.... so this is probably only good info in case the dongles develop a fault or cause problems - so you don't need to buy or even spend time finding a new 330k or 1000k Ohm resistor for repair...... just shove some washers under ...

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

Thanks JJ. Now we just have to hope Dave builds up his butt :D Hey..... I just read on the other forum, that some euro guys are suspecting they have been updated to the new 19 models suspension software after a service....... and I was thinking my SDGT might have been given the treatment when I was...

Re: '16 vs '17 GT

As far as I can work out from reading reports on a few forums, some early build 16's needed a front fork work over as the WP supplied forks were a bit too harsh (I think they re-shim'd the internals). Not all had the issue. (the 19 model got some significant upgrades but I think the 16-18 model run ...

An accidental discovery re O2 sensors

G'day all, Re; O2 fuel dongles ...... I was testing my SDGT because it recently lost a significant amount of fuel economy and one of the options i tried was - Slip a washer under the O2 sensors :idea: I had read on a car forum that mechanics often put a spacer under the O2 sensor to cure lean runnin...

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

G'day Rock, Glad to hear your also doing well. I've just done a 240km ride - with a bit of vigour - but not too serious as there was a lot of traffic out for our 'Mothers Day' celebrations - Sunday brunches/picnics etc :) Sure feels great to be back on the bike and feeling confident with my body.......

Re: MTC and engine light

Cheers JHN, Mine has only ever presented the 'check engine' symbol after i installed a dongle when removing the charcoal filter & purge valve. That dongle had a fault and burnt out, causing several odd warnings like 'suspension failure' and 'Clight something' (wasn't on long enough for me to read it...

Re: What have you added to your gt today?

Cheers Knackers, Take a bit of care putting them on - get used to the little arms under the hooking lugs..... they need to strike the 'slot' neatly. Mine work great, but I don't overload them and I also make sure they are packed to the shape of the lid's. i've now got the quick release racks on so I...

Thankfully no more surprises......

G'day all, Took my SDGT for a 150km spin out to Beaudersert to check out the Ducati Club's 2019 Bevel & BS run. I discovered my O2 dongle fuel economy has improved from the first ride and now the SDGT returns 18.5k/ltr on the motorway - I think I read somewhere that the economy is less when riding i...

The Things You See in a McDonalds Carpark

G'day all, Dropped in on the Ducati Club's meeting point for their annual weekender for the old Bevel Drive models. They managed to drag 37 out for a run to Tenterfield - even in the face of possible stormy weather ;) . Great bunch of enthusiasts..... and some really nice old bikes (couldn't snap al...
