Re: Remus link pipe

So I went for a short ride this morning to test and all was well; very nice in fact. I left the bike for a few hours and went on another short ride to tpwn tp collect something. Upon starting, I got the dreaded MTC failure and limp mode.... I crawled home and pulled the servo off again, but cant see...

Re: Remus link pipe

Fitted it last night, and yes, pay very careful attention to the servo position. It took a couple of attempts, but it seems fine now. Now the bike sounds like it looks, and I don't think a slip on is necessary. I will now get the "Akro" map fitted at the 1st service, due in 150kms as the b...

Remus link pipe

I cant wait! My Remus link pipe should arrive today! It's taken the best part of 4 months to find the correct link pipe WITH a device to fit into the exhaust servo. Holding thumbs!

Re: MRA X-creen Sport

I tried the X-creen and it certainly was better, but I thought I could improve it even more, so I fitted a Puig Touring screen. Only ridden it today for the 1st time for about 10minutes, so I need a bit more time to make an accurate call, but it certainly seems great. A quick squirt up to 235kmh and...

Re: Hard Suspension

Thanks everyone for your input; at one stage I thought I was losing my mind! My wife and I went for a good length ride this past weekend, and I put it on Comfort and 1 rider + baggage. Wow, what a different motorcycle! Touched speeds of 220kph and it was perfect! PS: my wife is now refered to offici...

Hard Suspension

Good day all I've recently bought a new 1290 SD after having an 1190 Adventure. Admitedly, I've only done a few hundred K's, but I'm finding the suspension incredibly hard, to the point of being uncomfortable. I took my wife for a short ride last week and she hated every minute of it; probably wont ...

MRA X-creen Sport

Coming off the 1190 Adv, I am finding the buffeting quite bad on the GT. At a height of 182cm's, I guess that is part of the problem. After much searching,I decided to try the X-creen Sport, as it had rave reviews. Many of the screens that I considered, were as big as a barn door, and to be honest, ...

Re: some experience about OIL on GT

I am well aware of excessive oil consumption with certain oils; in fact, we had it happen with our Husqvarna FC250 Redhead a few years ago, when we used Liqui Moly. To date, we've never had an issue with Motul 300V and we've used it in a few motorcycles. There are lots of good oils around; use what ...

1290 SD GT recall

Hey guys; just had a recall on my bike this week; I've only done 400kms and was told, "Do not ride" your bike until we've had it. I took it in, and the Dealer replaced a fuel line(or connector) and also I see that they've replace the side stand spring. Anyone else had this done?

Re: some experience about OIL on GT

I'm in South Africa on the East Coast, and our temps very seldom go down to 8'C in winter; and I never ride in those conditions as I don't have to; my bike is for pleasure only! My oil of choice on all previous, current and my sons racing Husqvarna FC450 mx bike is Motul 300v. It is by far the best ...

Re: Spark exhausts

Thank you. I have a choice of 2 Spark slip on's, and they look really nice, AND are way cheaper than the Remus and Akro. The importer is also getting some Cat Eliminator mid sections from Spark, so, I cant wait!

Re: What would you do.

I would take it back. If you like the bike, get another one. As a rule they are great bikes, but you may have a "Friday" bike. Often, bikes that start out with niggles, tend to be that way forever.

Has anyone had any experience with the Italian Spark exhausts? Does the SD R slip on, fit the SD GT?

What "comfy" options are there for the passenger seat? I don't need a heated seat, just a nicer seat for my better half! Thanks chaps.

Re: Another new guy!

Thank you. I will be looking at other tuning options. We have a company that is doing ECU flashing, and by all accounts, the results are excellent. Google; Fire it up motorcycles in Johannesburg, and look under Tuning.

Good day everyone, greetings from South Africa. I have had my SD GT about 4 weeks and I am loving it!! I've fitted a few bling bits, reservoir cover and axle nut covers and am just waiting for my Remus intermediate pipe. I purchased my bike from our Dakar man, Alfie Cox as is a good mate of mine.
