Re: C-light Failure XC-2 Mapping

Good idea TCC...... did you send a PM as well?

This forum had a couple of issues earlier in the year, and may have lost a few contributors due to being locked out or very slow navigation..... Dewayne may not be a regular so a PM might alert him to reconnect.

Re: C-light Failure XC-2 Mapping

Cheers TCC...... I see where I went off the rails..... :lol: ..... and i was thinking the indicators would be the test to confirm connections. It reads like KTM may have installed the 19 ECU software (?) - I had that done in June and it fixed the weak rebound damping and updated some engine maps and...

Re: Seven warranty claims, and counting

Update: I started this thread in May 2018. Well, it's now almost a year and a half later, and I'm happy to report that my bike has been totally trouble free. With a bit over 12,000 miles on the odometer, all I have done is oil changes and tire replacements. I had to take a few months off from ridin...

Check that the C-lights have been plugged in behind the tank spoilers....... I have made that mistake when putting my tank back on (forgot to reconnect the C-light leads)...... read up how to unscrew and remove the spoilers - it's a bit of a fiddle (don't want to overstress or break any plastic lugs...

Re: DID chain.

Cheers Dave'o....... you probably should have bought a longer length chain and a 17/42 combo and just re-riveted to length...... the GT is so deceptively tall geared...... I'm liking the 16/40 on mine, but I miss the slightly stronger feeling of torque you get from the 17t...... so going +4 on the r...

Re: F1 light on after sas removal and dongle fitted

My KTM mech said the fault warning will go away after 3 on/off ignition cycles..... if the error was a phantom and is not still current....... so try several starts and rides and see if it auto corrects. Double check the sas removal has been done per the Rottweiler video. Also, I installed a purge v...

It gets easier second time around...... just remember to turn both fuel taps back on when it's all together again.
