Re: No more SD GT, traded for 2020 Ninja 1000SX May 2020

G'day jjscsix, or should that be "jjscSX"..... ;) I was just reading a review about the 2020 1000SX in my current AMCN bike magazine..... :lol: Kawasaki has done a bit of work on them and they are now the same wet weight as the SDGT. A very nice bike! I'm not likely to put many kms/miles on my GT in...

Re: Rear shock spring

G'day Sprint1952, I'm assuming you have a gen 1 SDGT. The spring on mine felt way too soft until I had the 2019GT's suspension software installed - could that be your issue (?). If you haven't had the new software installed, do it, it makes a huge difference! The stock spring copes with a 70-90kg ri...

Re: Preload Adjuster Error / Problems with Mizu lowering kit 1290SDGT

Cheers all...... And yet it has been done successfully ....... lowering a 19SDGT that is ........ see copy of post from 'accessories' thread last year (below).... The wording is important, suggesting it is not a straightforward operation to do it properly. Loski and Steve Gnome are the only two I've...

Re: Lowering Kit 25mm for SDGT

That sounds promising...... I've not read of anybody doing much +/- fiddling..... SDGT's must be confined to the dealers by the "system" so it's taking a while for aftermarket guys to get a leg in.

Sounds like you're onto it, let us know how you go :)

Re: Lowering Kit 25mm for SDGT

G'day Loski, I think what's going on with the service manager is that he has to charge something as the computerized staff management accounting system cannot allow for any 'good faith' freebie's (or he doesn't know how to manipulate the system, or he is bonus driven and greedy)..... I know of this ...

Hope it works out Loski....... even if you send a PM to Steve G .... he may not have set his account up to notify his email inbox - I usually only drop in every few days...... when it gets too intense over on the KTM Forum site :lol: (there's a lot of big ego's on some forum's ;) ).

Re: KTM paddock stand

I use an ABBA copy main stand (it's a Constand central stand) - it was on sale so being a tighta..e I bought one. It does not have the capacity to add the extra parts for front lifting like the ABBA, but I have a 'La Corsa'- KTM copy front lift stand which is so simple to use. The bike is secure whe...

I'm thinking you may have ordered the SDR link pipe which is different to the SDGT pipe...... 3" too short leads me to believe the SDR link pipe is much shorter.......
