my tire warning went off yesterday and readings were (hot) 36F 40R. i had my tire warning turned off while running M7RRs, but got it turned back on when i switched to roadtec O1s. I'm trying to run 34f and 36r cold, but have had to bump up to 36f 38r cold to see if this avoids the warning sign, pain in the arse really.

The Tire Warning Triggers can be re-set by the KTM Dealer. They are attached to the tire rim as tire pressure sensor by the stem ( Front & Rear Part # 61412033000- http://www.ktmworld.com/partfinder.html ... %7c%7e0035 / http://www.ktmworld.com/partfinder.html ... %7c%7e0037 ) . Tire pressure alerts are commonly set by the dealer at 36/ 42. Many have had them set at 32/ 35 without a high end alert. Best,

Doc :) :)

Is 42 your cold pressure??, if it is, its too high, 38-40 max depending on load, solo 38, 2up 40.

42 cold is way to high for the Angel GT tire, even with the PR4s you would only go as high as 40 cold. I notice my rear gains 4 psi (cold to hot) and my front gains 3 psi on normal general riding. i did a track day with angels on my ex 1290R, i started the day with 32R 34F cold, and ended up dropping to 32F 30R to make the tires grip. It was a cold day in Taupo tho.

Was told by my dealer that they could not alter the pressure sensor warning setting. The only thing they could do is turn off the warning. Common complaint here.

The large KTM bikes like the 2016-2017 KTM 1290 SDGT allow for the tire pressure sensors to be adjusted to different Threshold's for activation of the Tire Alert. Done by the KTM Dealer through the bikes programing. This is what my KTM service dept did to my bike. Consider giving Service a Eurosports in Asheville, NC a call at 828.255.6600.

Best,

Doc :? :?

Thats what i believe to be the case, i had mine turned off while i ran the M7RRs, then got it turned back on for a set of Roadtecs., i don't think they are adjustable, but I'm all ears.

Who's had a flat tyre?
The the sensors work very well.
I was on a trip to meet up with m8s 200kms away.when 3/4 of the way there I noticed flashing on my dash a lot quicker than I noticed the tyre going down.
Pulling over I was down to 30 odd pounds in the rear.
Lucky for me I had a (Dog shit) repair kit.
Due to a lot of road works I put it down to was a sharp stone as it was more of a cut than a nail.
Lucky I got home.
but needed to replace the tyre as the risk was too great.As I take the wife on the back.
So was greatfull for the sensor.

Yes, my dealer advised that due to legal reasons they must recommend the KTM pressures 36f 42r cold..... (bike manufacture's do this to cover their ar...es in case a rider sues them....so they recommend fully loaded touring pressures to cover all bases......but the GT is too light for those hard pressures).

I got them to agree to turn the warning 'off' and leave the TPMS readout 'on' so I could check the pressure.

I also run 34psi cold front and 36psi cold rear and I cross check my gauges with the tpms so they all agree (I have seen tyre gauges with 10psi error....). The tpms tells me I have 37psi hot front and 39-40psi hot rear while riding at 100kph.......and the Angel GT's are 11,100kms old and are looking like I'll get to 15k if I am gentle....... :lol:

So running lower pressures doesn't kill tyre wear (hard acceleration does that.....eh Dave'o ;) ) and you get good grip......of course if you are two up fully loaded you might want 36f 38-40r as a cold setting......

If I can get the dealer to reset the trigger values to 32f & 34r I would agree to have the warning turned 'on' again........I'll try at the 15k service ;).

Sh-t, we have had stinking hot weather 2 weeks ago, followed by last weekend's rain, and now there are Heatwave Alerts out for this weekend.........Groannnn.....what did I do to piss the weather man off :roll:

PS My CBR1100XX Blackbird (well, Blue-Blackbird :lol: ) has 42psi cold front & rear recommended by Honda - try riding in the rain with those pressures!.......and it's a heavier bike (app 260kg vs 233kg GT)..... :roll: Didn't take me long to sort that out - 35f + 37r on PR4's is perfect for it.
