Re: ktm 1290! in dirtbike chassis

I was confused for a second, the photo is reversed. It looks the business.

Re: headlight adjuster screw

It is just plastic, and I cross threaded mine. Had to get a new one, all good.

Re: 2017 Super Duke Race Prep

Nice to see you and the bike getting on so well. I am interested in your plans for the suspension. I have a 17 and find the fork a bit soft in tight stuff. If I do it I want to add preload.

Re: Help me pick next mod

Fwiw, you may want to look into handle bars. I have a 17, and the sweep was giving me carpal tunnel after a 200 mile ride. Went with a traditional dirtbike bend, and can't be happier. Leans me slightly forward, but no real weigh on my shoulders. I can take my hands off the bars without having to gri...

Re: Evotech Crash Bungs - OCD Paranoia

Now that I think about it the owners manual has the info as well. I have a digital copy of it if anyone wants a copy.

Re: Petrol octane booster!

I don't think it is necessary if the engine has stock compression. Octane stops the fuel charge from igniting prematurely. The higher the pressure/ compression the higher the octane is needed. I have read (no personal experience) that low compression engines can suffer from high octane fuel. The cha...

Re: Being an Adolescent

It always amazes me when someone talks ridiculous about bikes to me. Easy to spot a bull shitter. Than I wonder how many times in life the rolls has been reversed. 😳 I've talked shit more than I'd like to admit. Lol.

As much as I like my bike sometimes I wish I went black.

Re: Dyno Tuned\Upgrades

Thanks Fry. At this point I am thinking OFT. My reason is I have a solid mechanic and don't have a good relationship with my local dealer. The OFT should give my guy the freedom to do all the stuff dealer previously had a monopoly on. Now I just need to talk him into tuning with the OFT compared to ...

Re: 2017 Keyless issue

Been dealing with this issue as well, assuming the answer would materialize. I find it works perfectly for two days with a fresh battery, then dead. The battery that is. The fob seems to drain batteries.

Re: Dyno Tuned\Upgrades

First, how are they accessing the ecu? I have been thinking OFT, but am not sold on anything yet. Second, did you guys play with the throttle? Either more aggressive turn, or allow it to open more where the stock is limited. Seems odd building more power, when the bike is limiting the amount of thro...

The range to empty is crap, I dont even look at it.
I stopped giving the range/mpg any cred as well. Mine tells me I'm getting over 40 mpg, and it is more like 25 to 30.
