Charging superduke 1290 2015

Post by rapidgaz » Sat Dec 23, 2017 10:39 pm

Hi all. Do I need a can bus charger for my super duke or can I use a normal optimate type charger. And can I connect straight to battery. Cheers
Gareth.

Flashing green is maintain mode. Nothing wrong with that. Did you read the instruction when you got the charger?

If your bike is new, and you are referring to the white plug, under the rear seat - that is not a charging plug - it is for the KTM alarm seat switch - which can be purchased from KTM
My RC8 has now been replaced by the BEAST...........
YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE
