Just to be clear(er), I posted a video on Youtube: https://youtu.be/yY6eZF9v8vI When I turned my volume on, I could clearly hear the sound I am speaking about. Hopefully this is helpful. Thanks.
This sound is normal for these bikes.

Re: First Ride

The noise you are hearing is completely normal. It is a by product of the electronics/fly by wire nothing to be concerned about. It's not exactly best practice to leave a bike with the ignition on for long periods of time any way so it shoudn't be of concern. The Fuel range is calculated on a number...

Re: Warning Light with Akra map

When you scroll through the menus, it should have a faults page which is only available when here is a fault ie low fuel, key out of range etc. Does that screen show the fault?

Re: 2017 SDR Mods (Beast 2.0) - What have you done?

Karnage - obviously you have experience with the 3m products that are out there. Please offer some insite; I purchased the KTM tank sticker kit (black) but haven't installed it yet. In your opinion, would it be best to skip it altogether and go with the 3m protection, or would the tank sticker kit ...

Re: Steady Progress\Upgrades, Pics.

Looks great! Wish I could lose my pillion pegs.

I'm trying to find an off the shelf plug for the Shock bolt hole in the swingarm, I'll let you know if I find one.

Re: Akra Map with No Akra.

BTW having the Akra map installed will disable the exhaust valve, quite likely this is one of the reasons it feels so restricted. The exhaust valve is also used throughout the tune to improve rideability and smoothen the torque curve. So, with the Silencer Off the bike and the Cat still installed, ...

Re: Akra Map with No Akra.

With the Akra Map installed, you "should" be able to disconnect the exhaust valve servo with no fault. The Akra kit comes with a bracket to relocate the rear brake reservoir after you remove the servo.

Mostly Protection more that "mods" AR knockoff slipon (at 1/10th the price was worth the gamble) increase in sound was more than I expected, i can't imagine how load the 1290 is with a Decat.

Re: Akra Map with No Akra.

It's hard to understand your logic. You spend months moaning about the bike not being delivered on time, you blame the dealer for this despite the fact they have no control over the situation, your approach guarantees they will not respond favourably to your repeated carrying on. You finally get the...

Re: 2017 KTM Myride issues

I've just been through the exact same thing! Do a factory reset of the Sena, then pair it to the Duke as your "phone" and it will work perfectly. I haven't tried yet, but i believe that you can then pair your phone directly to the sena using "multipoint pairing" that way it will still connect if you...

Hi Kev, New guy here, Currently have an 05 990, but due to take delivery of my '17 next week! I'll be keeping an eye on your mods and am keen to see the results. I'm interested to know what the speedo is like accuracy wise on the new model? If it's out, will the same rings work? and do you or plan t...
