Re: Burning smell?

I sense a similar odour and I put it down to chain lube burning off the collector box under the motor.. ;) I'm a classic over oiler and I can see plenty of chain splatter around the foot peg/sprocket area :lol: I'm guessing, but if it isn't that then it could be some oil fumes escaping the airbox vi...

Belly Pans for GT

G'day all,

Just stumbled onto a post in the general section of this forum (Random chatter).

There are now three styles available - check out the links........Puig, SW Motech and Ibex.

Very tempting....... 8-)

Re: Change of suspension

Cheers Mr C....... I wonder if anyone is thinking of making up a plug in dongle that tricks the ECU into thinking the suspension is working.......then just replace WP forks and shock with Ohlins units same diameter/length?

Might cost a bit ...... ;)

Re: Quick shifter not working

Yeah, my local tech said they normally activate the QS at the 1000km/620m warranty service....KTM prob think you shouldn't use the QS until the gearbox has scrubbed a few rough edges off........but they activated mine from day 1 anyway........that's cause I say please and thankyou....... :lol: When ...

Re: New 2016 SDGT

Cheers Twisted One.. ;) I bolted the Acerbis 'Dual Road' handguards on mine (saw a post from an owner in France on this site) and they look great and work well - others have grafted some KTM guards from 1190/etc on to keep the cold air blast off the fingers while the hot grips do their thing (see po...

Re: Change of suspension

Yep, gotta admit the dynamic stuff is probably more suited to road riding than track day racing......not that I ever go fast officer.. ;) Let the snow melt and then muddle through the break-in miles like we did..... try any setting that seems to be ok until you get some miles into that suspension.

My Aussie fuel is unadulterated clean petrol - unlike that cats peee E-blend the rest of the world seems to have to endure. :lol: Even though the Gt is rated as 10% E-tolerant, a rider can...

G'day Twisty - from Aus :) I have a 2017 GT and have just over 10,000kms (should have hit 15k kms by now but have been sickly or injured or it's been pissing rain on weekends..... :roll: ). The only difference I know of between 016-017 models was the rear indicators were changed to slimline LED. Far...

Re: Let's see the GT's

Well framed shot sir! I visited Mt St Helens way back in 1997.......it was a very solemn sight riding through all the flattened forests (Mt St H blew it's side out and obliterated everything in the park). It has regenerated nicely, though it was a spectacular display of how much power is generated b...

Re: Bag locks

Geeze with the cost of these cases (mine were $1300Aus - our GT's don't come standard with cases) I'd consider the option of the SW Motec rack and some Givi cases (they have keyless access hatches so they don't need to be opened fully while on tour)......but they won't look as slim or be as light as...

Nice one......and that stand looks the goods! I have the rear ss style but it takes a grunt to get it up and it also lets the bike spring about a bit (hope it never breaks.....will end in tears if it does)..... but your central stand looks solid - does it lift the front wheel up if you put weight on...
