Re: No start?

Just spotted your post while trawling the forum......... if the problem persists, consider having the fuel pump filter inspected or replaced as there has been a few recalls/comments about ethanol fuels reacting with the filter element and turning it it mush. This usually manifests as stalling while ...

Re: KTM paddock stand

Agreed...... I used to stick mine up on the ss rear stand (to make space) but one day I noticed how springy it was with a near full tank of fuel.......and started to wonder what might happen if the ss rear stand ever broke. Since I'm scratching for space in my over crowded garage.....I'm using the r...

Re: Warranty coverage for 2016 SDGT?

Haven't had a look at my owners manual, but I suspect the limited warranty mentioned above might be for race track usage. My GT has 2year (40k kms(?) from memory). I had the Brembo rotors replaced at 7k kms with no arguments (warrantee). Naturally the catch is all service work has to be completed as...

Agreed........I like mine as it is......and it's comforting to know the updates are mostly cosmetic/TFT dash type (ie no motor mods necessary).

G'day Terrified........I was just trawling around the forum (not much happening in the 1290GT section)..... I think you have a problem with your particular 1290S and should get onto the KTM dealer asap. I've got a GT, and have never ridden the Adv-S......but one thing KTM are good at is fitting kill...

Re: New owner here!

Welcome in advance Rider....... oddly enough the Gt keeps me dry due to the shape of the tank and the height (I think) - my boots are goretex but they don't seem to cop much spray from the front wheel. Cold climates will make you want a taller screen like the Pooo-ig (there are a few to choose from ...

Geeze, Mt Twisty....... is that bare knuckle bar ends on your bikes? With all that white stuff on the floor, you should fit some hand guards (Acerbis are great, but there are others - just go with the single 'end mount' type as the rugged dual mount types might hit the dash on full turn).
