Re: 2018 sdr are all the issue's sorted !!!

Naw, I've already got a bike. I am just concerned with bumping the starter while the display is still cycling.

Oh, and one thing the KTM guy said was - never press the starter button before the system check has finished - that can cause a heap of issues with software.
Any glitches I should look for? I do that sometimes.

Re: Will be buying soon

I commute as well. If you are doing more than 20 miles (maybe less), at 75 and up, put a little screen on it, or look at the GT. I had to change the bars on mine. The sweep was too much. All said. The bike is the shit. Comfortable, handles decent (I want to stiffen the front), and power wheelies in ...

Re: Best Front Suspension for Both Road and Track?

I plan on doing a revalve, heavier spring, and adding preload to my forks. Unsure of what the shock needs, but a spring for your weight might be enough. The faults of the stock suspension are noticeable when riding "spirited" on the road, definitely need fixing for track use. That said, I haven't fi...

Doesn't work for 2014-16, built into the bike. You will need an after market piece.

Re: stock airbox

I am going to be putting a Rottweiler on my bike soon. Just trying to get time on the dyno. You can have my airbox for shipping from the USA.

Re: Gone for a bit, back now.

Hey Fry, nice pic. Question, have you messed with suspension beyond clickers? If I could get that figured out I'd be a happy camper. My buddy left his FZR1000 (used to be mine) at my house. After sitting on it I realize how much more it is over the front end. I've thought about buying super aggressi...

Re: Selling The BEAST

If the time comes that you sell some extras off, I would like dibbs on rear sets, passenger seat cover, and belly pan. Not sure what I would be able to do, but first right of refusal would be cool.

Re: Selling The BEAST

You answered the second question before I asked, suspension. I am going to change my springs at least, and maybe valving. Don't blame you on the 790. If I lived someplace with good roads that is what I would have bought. I wonder if an "R" is coming.

Re: Keyless junk

Huh. If I hit the button, then immediately touch the key it normally works the first time. Sometimes it take more than one try, but eventually works.

I stopped changing the batteries. Just hold it on the plastic cover, and it should work.

Re: Keyless junk

My understanding is that KTM is looking for a solution. In the meantime I just hold it to the tank to turn it on. No less convenient than having a traditional key.
