Cool thanx Vet, i asked, at service, they new nothing. Ok now on a positive note, they sorted my quick shifter, they didn't try it at first, just took my word for it, he reset the parameters, and she's working fantastic, (how the fuk did i live without one) they moved the horn, so now it works all the time, (don't know where they put it, i couldnt see it) and they told me theres a recall on the stand leg. So all in all I'm a happy camper, and the bike goes like stink, and sounds fantastic. Whoo Hoo.
Just to let everyone know there wont be a map update on GT about fueling or to suit akrapovic as it can run without special map. I am quite upset they didn't even offer new GT this year, new GT will have blipper, also digital tft screen, newlights, and also new cruise control ( they just change the cruise control to fit to left which its belongs to) but didnt heard of any map changes power changes , for sure they couldnt manage to make it ok for EURO 4 :/

But it makes me upset when i see here people saying i am waiting for a update map for akro because there is no map planned for this bike.
So terribly sorry to upset you "Tancakar". Where did you get your info? I only have been getting my information from KTM and passing it on. I have yet to see a new map from KTM for the GT, but with the new Power parts I do see some hope. The 2017 "R" has a different part # for the Akra exhaust. The fact that the "R" has similar equipment as the GT (exhaust valve, quick shifter Etc.) gives me hope we can use it. I checked and the ECU's for the 2017 "R" and the GT have the same part# as well as the 2016 GT. I am betting it will work on the GT and will try it in a month or so when the weather gets better here.

if R system would have work on GT then it would have been easy. Although the bikes are very similar there are tweaks on GT. I think they couldn't manage to build the GT this year because of time may be? the euro 4 is though and might change a lot of things on GT.

i think KTM is not interested in a map for GT why would they? financially here are no benefits, the only reason they did the Akrapovic map is to sell the full system to SDR.

they don't even listen to customer problems and act on them or try to get them better in next batch. /is it that difficult to solve the problems on the Active suspension ? its awfully hard.

So do you think the GT isn't Euro 4 already?

GT was Euro 4 compliant when it came out 2016.

One of the dominant themes at the 2016 EICMA show in Milan was how the newest road bikes are all taking form around the Euro 4 ruling. We asked for some more details.

Underneath all the shine, sculpture and promise of exhilaration at the vast EICMA show in Milan – where manufacturers both old and fresh, vast and niche showed their latest wares – was the reality that new motorcycles across roads in 2017 have to adhere to a rigid set of regulations. Bike designers might be more radical than ever and modern technology permits some startling progress but the work of brands across the globe to fit the EU market means tight boundaries.

Euro 4 essentially effects the emissions and safety standards for all bikes registered after January 1, 2017 (with certain types such as mopeds and scooters allowed another year). The European Union has been refining the ‘output’ and state of newly registered motorcycles and other powered two-wheelers for almost twenty years, and the ‘4’ ruling is something that companies on the continent have had to patiently wait to absorb the details and then orientate their development accordingly.

“Euro 4 is very big and doesn’t just have an effect on noise emissions but also exhaust gas emissions and every bike must also have ABS,” says KTM Product Marketing Manager Adriaan Sinke. “It is a tough standard to meet and we’ve updated a lot of our product range to meet these standards.”

Among all the technical jargon the Euro 4 basically means a stricter slap down on carbon levels, exhaust emanations and noise. Merely altering a silencer will not lead to a solution. The very essence of a motorcycle has to change: the way the engine is fabricated and delivers power, to the rate of electronics and the subsequent effect on the bike as a whole.

“It is a big stress and one of the biggest challenges is that you really want to progress with your product and don’t want to just update it for homologation requirements,” Sinke adds. “You want to hone your technologies and improve the feel of the bike. To get those things synchronized is tricky. We started last year with the 1290 SUPER DUKE GT.”

Tancakar, some here new this, but all it took was a quick search to find it out. :D
