Running lumpy, or just a V Twin?

Squeaky back brake? Hard to control at 30mph/40kph?

Running lumpy, or just a V Twin?

Post by Iceycold » Sun May 12, 2019 5:43 pm

Hi guys,

I am the proud owner of a 2014 SuperDuke R, I bought it 2 weeks ago and I am so in love with it. Its my first KTM and my first V Twin after riding big Jap inline fours for nearly 30 years!!

The bike runs very very well... but.... I have noticed that in Street mode at low revs, it is quite lumpy, and doesn't feel like its running very smoothly. It runs better over 3k, but under it seems to really not like it. It is better in Sport mode, but the throttle is snatchy at low revs. Rain mode is smooth.

The bike is standard (I believe) apart from a Remus end can which has no baffle in it.

I am thinking about balancing the carb bodies and checking all the vacuum pipes etc. But wondered if anyone had any sage-ly advice about what to look for, or is this normal for a big v-twin?

Any help or advice greatfully received.
