Re: Phillip Island Moto GP

:mrgreen: You'll love the destination too...... Victoria is a beautiful place to ride (we used to take as many back roads as possible to stay off the major highways). Just remember there is a zero tolerance policy in force re- speed limits etc and they have koala cams in gum trees.... :lol: ..... wh...

You'll have heaps of fun...... just be careful...... the Victorian polite farce know you're coming and will be out to get you. The NSW guys are not so bad. ;)

Re: Front header turning red @ warmup

One thought comes to mind....... engine stalling was a factor caused by fuel filter media turning to mush and blocking flow from the fuel pump on some bikes using ethanol blends. Could this be the underlying cause of your red-pipe issue? (there is a recall out for fuel pumps and Brembo brake master ...

Re: 2019 KTM SDGT Photo's are Out

:lol: yeah, bit like buying a house......if new price is down you get less for the old house unless you're one of the lucky ones who 'sell on a high' and 'buy on a low'........ not really possible with bikes because they are not an appreciating capital asset even for those of us who look after them ...

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

:lol: I thought about being a smart-arse and saying 'leave her at home'...... but the real answer is as per DaveNz....... I also set my cruise to 'activated' before departure and just leave it on - that way I can set a speed (or not) whenever I want (less fiddly that trying to activate and set). The...

Re: 2019 KTM SDGT Photo's are Out

Nice pic PK...... really shows the revised styling around the headlight/tank panels. I think KTM have done a good job giving the GT a makeover without making the earlier model look bad. I'm guessing the new price will be about the same - they'll probably discount the 17 models which only struggled t...

Re: GT missing from KTM site

G'day all........ this headline now obsoleted ;) ....... see "photo's are out" - the EICMA release of the 2019 SDGT........ 8-) Many new features and well worth the wait. I'm envious of anybody just about to buy a 1290GT in that they can choose from a very good 017-018 model on run-out pricing or ju...

Re: 2019 KTM SDGT Photo's are Out

Cheers pk1, the TFT dash is the big one off the 1290SA-sport not the tiny little one on the SD-R :) There's only 3 'killer wasps' difference between the SDR donk and the current SDGT so it seems sensible to just use the same for both. I like 150rwhp...... it's thrilling and useable in everyday ridin...

Re: 2019 KTM SDGT Photo's are Out

Cheers Gary, EICMA was what KTM was waiting for and they have delivered :mrgreen: The 019 GT gets more hp, bigger screen, LED mains, big TFT dash screen and more sensitive suspension mapping..... probably lots more that wasn't mentioned by Gustav.... ;) I love that new dash :mrgreen: The U tube guy ...
