Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Sorry to hear this Elvis. Makes me wonder if I should continue on with my SMT :( First person we’ve heard of with this issue. Properly weird one but I wouldn’t panic yet. Does sound like it should be a better clip. The clip they’ve used will hold 99% of the time, it’s just better to use a stronger ...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

I’d replace with one of these. No chance of it coming off at all.

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Is it a normal circlip or the kind with the two holes that needs the reverse pliers?

I’d have thought the latter kind would be more than up to the job.

Re: 16 Tooth sprocket

I'm currently running a 16T but will be changing back to a 17T soon. My only issue with 17T was holding the bike at key UK speed limits. We have 50Mph average speed cameras and 70Mph speed cameras on the motorways. At these speeds the bike seemed to want to sit in between 5th/6th so I tried the 16T....

Re: Coolant change

I wonder if you’d get enough tilt on the centre stand if you whipped the rear wheel out?

Have you got a tree with a suitable branch in the garden?

Simply turn off the SAS using TuneECU and do away with the dongles. The SAS shouldn’t case this issue though.

Re: 2010 SMT has been in shop for six weeks!

Simple thing I’m not seeing is a coil pack swap between #1 & #2. If it fails again with an error and it’s followed the same coil, just replace it. You don’t know that the repair they did on the coil is good.

Re: Front Sprocket nut righty tighty lefty loosey?

100nm is the manual’s recommendation. I didn’t have an extension for my torque wrench so couldn’t get in there. Ended up gunning it back on [emoji23]

It’s the usual lefty loosey. Mine took a 450nm electric impact gun and still didn’t budge for a while [emoji51]

No idea unfortunately, they were on the bike when I purchased it.

Re: LIGHT Bulb for Auxilliary lights on SMT

They’re LED and I believe, sealed units with no bulb replacement. You could just get a cheaper set, like my safego ones, and wire them up to the same wires for the same operation.

Re: HELP my bike is beeping

So what openings did the map have before. Maybe your flies were barely open, creating the whistling (big air, tiny gap). If opening the flies has cured it, I’d either leave them as they are or go back to the old map but increase the openings at that rpm range by 10% Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Re: HELP my bike is beeping

You’re right, that’d drive me mental. Sounds like a Girl Scouts whistle rather than a snarling beast.

I think you’ve got an air leak somewhere. Double check your air box fitment, check the rubbers around the throttle bodies too.

Re: Cheap air box that works

A foam filter will always break down eventually, but I’ve got 9000 miles on mine and no signs of it yet. Are you keeping it oiled enough? They’re not exactly expensive either so if I have to replace every 4-5 years, it’s not an issue. Cleaned mine last service and it came out fine. Sent from my iPho...

Re: Rear brake lever is contacting clutch case

It was indeed the bearings in the brake pedal. I purchased them from a KTM dealer. They come individually so order 2. Getting them in/out is fun [emoji19]
