Big difference between personal once off items versus a commercial import on a continuous basis where you cant take chances

Sometimes they look the other way for personal use but that is just what it is unfortunately, they can still enforce the rules if they deem fit

KTM LC8 1050 / 1190 / 1290 / Re: An 1190R guys 1290R review.

so if you go ahead, what will it cost you?

Im busy working that out.  They'l offer me around 40-50k more than I owe on the bike, so that + a little extra puts a decent deposit down.  I just don't wanna overstretch on the monthly costs.

 :thumleft: hope things work out for you - I'm sure you'll love the bike and the peace of mind of having a warranty again

Do you find much difference in fuel consumption between the 12 and the 11?

no not really - obviously when you ride hard, she gets thirsty, but so does the 1190.... never really kept a log on my 1190, but I've had consumptions of between 5.2 and even 7.8 on the 1290 - I ride a lot of town-riding and quite hard, giving me on average around 6.6l/100km

Use fuelly if you would like to keep records

I have usually found my 15T sprockets by calling TracMac.  Not all the spares they have are on the website

Seems related to the memory card size?


But that is not the whole story, you also need at least 80mb/s write speed for 4K afaik

Chaps just an observation. When pulling off in first gear and right at the end of the clutch release cycle i find the engine shudders a bit if I dont keep the revs high Say above 2500rpm? Is this just a characteristic of a big Vee Twin? There is no slippage or anything and gear changes through out are silky smooth.

Mine too

Hi Guys,
I was in the market for a good , old school type , open face helmet recently.
I managed to find a nice open face Shoeie at a reasonable price, but it has no peak with it.
It looks really stupid to ride around with an open face helmet with no peak ,,,,,,    :-[
My question then, where can i find a decent peak ? It is the one that works with 3 press studs ,
In the old days one could find a peak at any bike shop, but nowadays ???
All advise would be appreciated,
I live in the Benoni area at present.....   :thumleft:

Wasn't able to understand  all of that.  I also changed my front sprocket to one tooth lower and after the bike was run in, I realised it was probably not necessary as the motor got stronger anyway.

All depends what bike is going to be used for open road or technical. I find on technical its better on clutch if gearing was done not so hard on clutch. But bike gets heavier on fuel ecspecially if you ride hard and on open road.

Guys sorry for this question can someone help pls  if there is a word spelled wrong how do you correc it F7 doesnt work also if you underline it and press right click doesnt throu out right spelling.

I didn't notice it being heavier on fuel as with the change in gearing, the bike thinks it is going further than it actually is.  My speedo seriously over reads and I would assume as a consequence, so does the odometer

Thanks to you all for your inputs, much appreciated !! Decisions, decisions !!. Will try arrange a decent test ride to help me decide, might opt for the smaller 250L if the AT seems too much to handle.
Thanks again.

Don't forget to confirm the lower seat setting, as there are two

We are doing a long non technical ride early in the new year. I am looking to go 1 tooth bigger on the rear to see what it does to the fuel consumption. Does anyone know where I can source such a sprocket? I only seem to be able to find a standard rear.

I found my sprocket on the pbr website http://pbr.it/ then I was able to get it from the Trac Mac store once I knew the part number
