Re: Kim 1090

G'day Kim.... I know the feeling...... no idea why everyone thinks "Brembo" = best when their rotors warp so quickly, but it is a warranty item as mine went floppy at about 7,000kms and KTM dealership verified the runout and two new disc's arrived shortly after. My suspicion is that 320mm brake roto...

Re: C-TEK Battery Charger

So you guys have wired in the adapter harness and just plug the C-tek in without lifting the seat etc :?

Re: super semi active comfidence

Yeah, I'd agree any of the current sporty tourer's would be light years ahead of the old school CB1300 (1970's design). The 2017 GT didn't get any major updates...... it got LED rear indicators (I have a 2017 GT)...... possibly some internal revisions to front forks (from WP) otherwise it looks iden...

Re: Lookin For Adventure...... Head Out On The Highway.......

Ho Ho.....bloody Ho...... well at least the medical team has given me a date, even though it's another month of waiting..... at least I have a target date ;) - though the SDGT might still have to wait for 2019 before I feel confident/fit enough to ease back into riding...... :mrgreen:

Re: sw motech crash bars

G'day Monco1960 from he other side of the planet :lol: I looked at the SW Motech bars for my 1290GT and they are very solid with three mounting points, but I thought they might possibly be leg breakers as they are close to the rider (I've read about bike journo's getting broken legs in slow speed of...

Re: Long-time lurker, first-time poster

G'day and welcome fellow Queenslander :) Great to have another Brisbane based rider converted to the 'light'...... ;) Keep up the pics eh...... forum has been a little slow lately so it's great to see some shots of Gt's out in the wild.

C-TEK Battery Charger

Hi all, Wondering how everybody charges their batteries when in storage/not riding regularly :?: I've been disconnecting my earth terminal and clipping my C-TEK smart charger on just like it says to do in the KTM manual (as recommended for the KTM charger). This is getting tedious, and I'm sorely te...

Re: Front header turning red @ warmup

Thanks recip23.... :) Just caught your intention to go 16 t on the front sprox........ I'm sure the other Dave (in New Zealand) would agree to advise you to go to a 40t rear sprox for a couple of reasons:- 1 - the Gt has an amazing "quick change" system = 15mins to swap the rear sprox (no bs) - just...

: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).

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 ...

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...
