Re: New Member + suspension question

I think Faisal had an issue and the dealer has corrected it....... his shockie or software must have been defective or poorly installed - he has been riding it and it seems ok now after the first service. The 19 got the much better software so he should have been very happy from day 1. I've got the ...

Re: Oh god, what have I done?! (Sydney, AU)

Cheers Rolo,....... these guys did all this back in 2016...... maybe they have moved to another forum or a new bike or ?? I don't know about the SDR, but the TC on my SDGT is perfect..... so much so, that I haven't thought to turn it off to see what it's like without it. I don't fk about either........

Re: Ergo Heated Seat question

Great news Derek, You will need him too...... all these new models are tied to the manufacturer's systems. Not such a bad thing as the diagnosis tools are pretty smart if and when needed. I think the KTM distributor charges a fee for a 'non-scheduled' system hook-up.... so $30US sounds about right.....

Re: Service indicator.

I just reset my 17GT service indicator as I changed my own oil yesterday.... but it is different to the 19 model. While I was in 'settings' I held both arrow keys down until the screen changed and I could enter my new service info (I change my oil every 5000kms, so I use that for my service alert). ...

Re: Seat Break In / Comfort

I used a short cropped sheepskin pad (and still do) on the oem hard seat pad and that was pretty good. The Ergo seat would have been better if it didn't have a carbon heating element just below the surface so I still use the sheep skin pad on it. The ergo seat tends to slightly push me into one posi...

Great news Mick...... you've been off the GT a while! Geeze this forum has become slow to respond on screen.... wonder what's going on? Anyway, glad you're back on the SDGT again..... enjoy. I've clocked up 20,000kms now (put 9,000km on since end of March :D )...... and I'm heading off to Canberra i...

Re: G'day everyone

G'day Rolo,

I saw your post over on the KTM forum...... This one didn't seem to recover from an outage in January, but we try to keep it alive...... it's not as hectic but I only drop in weekly.

There's a pretty active SDR section - or it was last time I scrolled by..... anyway, welcome in.

Hold both up and down buttons until the screen changes, then select what you need from that screen and (foggy recal...

Re: Hello from California

G'day rockojo, You can run the O2 eliminator dongles to reduce heat - I tested mine and my IR thermo recorded a 30C reduction in front header temp. These resistors make the ECU use the standard ignition map instead of the slightly leaner O2 sensor closed loop Euro5 map for under 5000rpm running. I a...

HDESA Rear Wheel Removal Socket for SDR/GT

Re: Rottweiler Fuel Dongle harness access

G'day all, Yes you do have to lift the tank to access the rear plug for the O2 eliminator dongle. However you can reposition it from the connector plate to near the shockie so that in future you can plug the O2 sensors back in without lifting the tank (or replace a faulty dongle etc etc) - I have do...

G'day JJ,

:lol: ..... I saw that and figured 'Duke Gt' ..... 2010...... does not compute..... the SDGT only came out in 2016, so I'm guessing it's a typo..... could be a 'new' superceded 16-18 model or the real deal 2019 GT :mrgreen: .

Re: Different front brake pads?

G'day Hay56, Are you sure you need more bite from your pads? I ask this because I suspect you may be having master cylinder leakage issues...... does your foot lever go all the way down to the bump stopper without applying strong brake pad pressure? If that is your real issue, then a re-bleed will h...
