Re: Help me pick next mod

Fwiw, you may want to look into handle bars. I have a 17, and the sweep was giving me carpal tunnel after a 200 mile ride. Went with a traditional dirtbike bend, and can't be happier. Leans me slightly forward, but no real weigh on my shoulders. I can take my hands off the bars without having to gri...

Now that I think about it the owners manual has the info as well. I have a digital copy of it if anyone wants a copy.

Re: Petrol octane booster!

I don't think it is necessary if the engine has stock compression. Octane stops the fuel charge from igniting prematurely. The higher the pressure/ compression the higher the octane is needed. I have read (no personal experience) that low compression engines can suffer from high octane fuel. The cha...

Re: Being an Adolescent

It always amazes me when someone talks ridiculous about bikes to me. Easy to spot a bull shitter. Than I wonder how many times in life the rolls has been reversed. 😳 I've talked shit more than I'd like to admit. Lol.

As much as I like my bike sometimes I wish I went black.

Re: Dyno Tuned\Upgrades

Thanks Fry. At this point I am thinking OFT. My reason is I have a solid mechanic and don't have a good relationship with my local dealer. The OFT should give my guy the freedom to do all the stuff dealer previously had a monopoly on. Now I just need to talk him into tuning with the OFT compared to ...

Re: 2017 Keyless issue

Been dealing with this issue as well, assuming the answer would materialize. I find it works perfectly for two days with a fresh battery, then dead. The battery that is. The fob seems to drain batteries.

Re: Dyno Tuned\Upgrades

First, how are they accessing the ecu? I have been thinking OFT, but am not sold on anything yet. Second, did you guys play with the throttle? Either more aggressive turn, or allow it to open more where the stock is limited. Seems odd building more power, when the bike is limiting the amount of thro...

The range to empty is crap, I dont even look at it.
I stopped giving the range/mpg any cred as well. Mine tells me I'm getting over 40 mpg, and it is more like 25 to 30.

Re: 2018 TFT Display Odometers/Fuel Consumption/Range

I alway assumed that just the fuel gauge was off, thus messing up the mpg rating (way off on my bike). Give me a week or so to go on a ride, and I will try to figure out if the odometer/trip are off.

Re: ktm 1290! in dirtbike chassis

My guess is you will need to abort all the electronic nannies. You may want to inquire into an open flash tablet. It allows you to make changes in the ecu. I would start by emailing them.

Re: New street bike

It makes power everywhere over 3k. Took me a while to get used to it, as I came off of a supermoto that would wheelie off idle. This does not. Stock fueling is lean, and it just feel lethargic off idle. Put the throttle in track mode with the TC around 3. I commute with TC on 3. I can feel it, but i...
