Re: GT missing from KTM site

G'day DaveW, I was just trolling through the Aus KTM site a couple of days ago and they still had the GT with headlight like ours (but with super sexy black & orange paint schemes)......... But, the LED headlight upgraded 2018/19 model might take a while to appear on our floor space - yours were pro...

Re: Constands CENTRAL STAND EVO or Abba SUPERBIKE

OK, everybody is out riding in the good weather......... :lol: :lol: .

Anyway, Motec found the assembly diagrams and that has resolved my concerns - so I ordered a Centre Stand Evo (40% off rrp). Should see it by the end of July 8-)

Cheers all........ keep shiny side up :)

Constands CENTRAL STAND EVO or Abba SUPERBIKE

G'day all, Has anyone got one of these types of stands? I like the Constand version listed on Motea (mostly because they are having a "summer sale" and the reduced prices help offset freight to Aus :lol: ). The pull handle up and step forward action looks natural vs push down action of my s/s paddoc...

Ibex Crash Protector Bar

G'day all, Has anyone fitted a set of Ibex crash bars to their GT yet? They look great in pics but I'd love to see a front on shot to check how wiiide they look on the bike. At last I found they are made of steel and come in orange/black/silver...... 8-) The SW Motech bars are probably the most secu...

Re: Anyone else ever forget they had panniers on and go 150mph +?

Yikes :o I thought I had read that the 2016 sidecases were prone to 'de-cover' at speed, but that the later cases had the covers screwed on so they wouldn't go their own way at speed..... but on the upside - the cases look good in all black... ;) ....... maybe the 'naked' look will catch on?

Re: ABBA Skylift stand

Cheers all. My "La Corsa" stands look just like KTM oem stands but the rear takes a lot of grunt to lift (even with low fuel and no luggage on), so it must not be engineered as well as the orange stuff - and it has a small amount of spring to it if I provoke a wiggle ;) ..... bloody pacemakers come ...

Re: Had to leave bike at the dealer...

I'm not convinced that 'Brembo' are as good as their marketing reputation... :| . They might have a great reputation on the track (racing speeds without the milages we do or the hill starts with hot pads etc etc), but for road riding, I'm not so sure they are worthy of the extra price for so called ...
