New '17 1290 R owner and issues

Post by mjonesjr8 » Fri Apr 05, 2019 7:39 pm

My '17 R was delivered yesterday and due to the rain I haven't even had a chance to ride it. It was 1st sold to me as a new leftover bike but, then right before the delivery guy was to get there they called me back and told me it had 2k miles on it unknowing to them(hmm) and it was a demo bike that had never been sold. I had already paid and had the performance and track packs added $800+ and was assured it was in perfect condition. It looks good enough - some scratches on the tft screen but, my main problem is everything pack wise seems to be there but, I can not toggle bluetooth on and I do not see KTM my ride. I contacted the dealer back who unfortunately is 12hrs away and they said their service dept said everything went fine with the install. I do see all the other options? any ides please? I'm leaving the only world I know which is super sports the last being a '18 CBR1000RR but, my old back just can't take that position anymore and was excited to learn of these bikes and the potential they had to do it all in a more comfortable position.

G'day mjonesjr.....

I can't advise except to suggest try posting over on the "KTM Forum"...... it seems more active than this one (super twins forum was down for 3-4 weeks in january and possibly lost a lot of contributors to other forums).

Best wishes from Aus ;)
