Re: Selling The BEAST

If the time comes that you sell some extras off, I would like dibbs on rear sets, passenger seat cover, and belly pan. Not sure what I would be able to do, but first right of refusal would be cool.

Re: Selling The BEAST

You answered the second question before I asked, suspension. I am going to change my springs at least, and maybe valving. Don't blame you on the 790. If I lived someplace with good roads that is what I would have bought. I wonder if an "R" is coming.

Re: Keyless junk

Huh. If I hit the button, then immediately touch the key it normally works the first time. Sometimes it take more than one try, but eventually works.

Re: Keyless junk

I stopped changing the batteries. Just hold it on the plastic cover, and it should work.

Re: Keyless junk

My understanding is that KTM is looking for a solution. In the meantime I just hold it to the tank to turn it on. No less convenient than having a traditional key.

Re: Advice on tuning

My advice is find a local race shop with a good reputation. They are the passionate ones. They want to see what a bike will do.

Re: 2017 Super Duke Race Prep

Nice to see you and the bike getting on so well. I am interested in your plans for the suspension. I have a 17 and find the fork a bit soft in tight stuff. If I do it I want to add preload.
