Re: Brembo recall

Oh, that'll be another cup of coffee I'll have to have while they fit the new piston kit and flush the lines.

No bother, mine doesn't do track days so it's not an urgent thing for me.......yet to hear about Aussie recall but I expect it will come...... ;)

Re: Radiator Guards

Yes.....they are worth their weight in gold.......it's the stone tossed up by the other vehicle that will strand you if the radiator is holed........ though, interestingly, all the guards don't cover the tank ends.....must have a look, maybe the led panels provide enough protection....... Still, Rad...

Re: News Flash.....2018 GT test mule spotted by MCN

Yep, just had a 200 km ride and I like the tach needle digital speedo combination - easy on the eye, don't need to study it while in motion - of course the V2 motor is it's own tacho by ear........and that angry flashing gear change warning lamp..... :lol:

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...

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 ...
