Re: Duke, Diavel and Vmax comparo

If your SDR wont wheelie at the snap of your wrist in 4th gear with stock gearing your missing part of your Beast.
Add the Rotty or MH airbox, PCV & open up your exhaust then tell us Mr Max is the boss.

Re: Hold on 2017 SDR release?

Not that I am a authority on oils,, BUT. I will assume KTM uses a break in oil. Non synthetic. I wouldn't change it until at least 3 - 400 miles. Let things seat a little B4 using synthetic. The rest of the shit needing to be done is minor. The shift light is just a light, isn't it, it doesn't affec...

Re: Opinion's or Thought's wanted

^^ Frick. 4 that I seen. One new 2016 for 14999 OBO.
Not sure why so many. It sure isn't because of the abundance or super low price on the 2017s

Re: Track Days on a SD-GT

You can apply your own settings tbh. Problem is that its within the parameters of load, and comfort/street/sport damping. It doesnt have the fine tuning possibilities that would be ideal and some other systems have. So far my best setting is Sport, 1 rider plus luggage. The bike seems to sit right ...

Re: 2002 ZX-12R Fork Seal Replacement

I think U did fine. Your just changing seals. Ride each one like a pogo stick until U feel the damping working. Just for the hell of it. Close both C & R valves & see how restrictive it gets. That's a $250 + job when u take them into dealership. Probably $400 if U let them pull the wheel & forks. Ri...

Re: New guy

550 SXV. I had one. For a 550 they scoot around nicely. BUT, the 1290 has 2.5 x more HP.
As Nite said "your in for a bad time" This bike wont settle U down. Guaranteed.

Re: FS: Full Akra, Rotty intake and PCV

Nice combo. Sound & power wise it cant be beat. The Rotty air boxes are a little loud, but when together with the PCV & pipe the gains are impressive.

Whats the scoop?

Re: Hold on 2017 SDR release?

I feel for U guys. If its any consolation its snowing up here again. What riding ive done has been done in not so ideal conditions. Sand on the roads & frigid weather.

By the time the NA models show up Kevxtx may have some mods figured out.

Re: Confused about exhaust options

My butt dyno says im down on power. Fek. Had to pull it up in 4th. Couldn't get over 245 kph going against the wind. It seems to run smooth though. I could live with this tone. Not as nice as the Akra combo I have, but ok. Sound & power wise. I prefer the Akra/Arrow Cat c/w Akra DB killer. Ill drill...

That would have been I a great ride. Its nice to look at these old bikes. I don't think id want to ride one for to long. Look at how far we have come. HP, performance, handling, comfort. The GT sure seems like a good package.

How so. Quality better? Are they still running the same filter box?
The 2015 isn't much different then the 2014. The front suspension on my 15 disappointed me. And that TC setting BS. Dongle install fixed that.
