Re: Additional indicators/ blinkers

G'day Pk1, The supplier might just be conforming to local laws/standards by stating the oem indicators need to be disconnected. Maybe the lawmakers think too many flashing lights might confuse some car muppets :lol: I installed similar LEDs to my Caponord's handguards. I went with the white continuo...

Re: Front header turning red @ warmup

Thanks Recip..23, The 40t rear will be the solution for you. By the way.... how did you go with the 'red header' issue? I've been reading on the other 'KTM Forum' about fuel dongles richening the low speed mixtures etc etc, but you'd want to find the cause of your lean running (eg O2 sensor or softw...

Re: General failure on cold starting

Cheers Mick....... I was just reading a post over on the KTM Forum, and you might benefit from his suggestion. He had a problem in his first two weeks...... which was resolved by checking the battery leads at 'both ends'. This inspired me to have a look at my GT even though it doesn't have any issue...

Checked Earth Lead "both ends"

G'day all, Over on the KTM Forum, I read a post in a discussion about electrical issues/battery problems/dash blanking/etc...... and was inspired to check my battery leads - both ends! I knew my terminals were tight, but had never thought to trace the leads to the other end..... The +ve lead goes to...

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

Cheers Brett, I think the Euro shops will get first priority - even though they are in winter and we are in summer, but as Germany is a huge success for the 1290 (AMCN published they have bought half of all SDGT's made), and the UK is just a train ride away, they will get delivery way faster than us...

Re: 2019 KTM SDGT Photo's are Out

Just read a post on the 'KTM forum' and the 2019 SDGT is on dealership floors in the UK now..... so they have stock but can't ride until spring, and we have sunshine here in Aus, but must wait until March for our first look :roll: .

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

I'm booked in for the recall's on the 14th and I've splashed out on the ergo/heated seat so I'm committed to getting back on the horse..... :) Today's dealership advice was that t...

Re: K&N Airfilter Installed

I'll give you a little more advice. Don't silicone the clips in. Pull them out with a pair of plyers before you take the tank off, and you can slide them back in after the tank is back on. I've done it a few times now. Great idea..... thanks....... makes sense...... the silastic won't hold next tim...

I've just installed the K&N airfilter that I was intending to fit last January (when I thought I'd have 15k kms up). Used a procedure fr...

K&N Airfilter Installed

:lol: ..... at long last, spent 3hrs in man-cave tooling on the GT...... tank off (using forum procedure - thanks guys)...... and K&N in :D . Fairly straight forward but some bits were very tight fitting and I silicon glued the tank rubbers & side clips so as to make next time easier. :mrgreen: Good...

Thanks Mark, I'll keep an eye out ...... haven't seen any GT's for a while...... but I have only been doing local kms in my Tucson. Hey, did you take a look at the new-old Katana display in the main showroom? Not bad I reckon, though it can't do what the SD does, the new Kat looks trick. Cheers mate...

Anyone know what spare connectors under Charcoal Canister are for ?

G'day all, Just curious...... there's a wad of connectors hiding under that ugly SAS canister under the passenger seat. One would be for the passenger's heated Ergo Seat but there are 4 spade type and another plug type that I guess would be for the Security Alarm kit...... I read elsewhere that the ...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Had another look at the 'fuse box' and there are different height fuses in the centre positions with shorter ones to the outside positions....... so unless they are loose, the step up in the centre is not an issue.
