I am weak.
« on: July 28, 2018, 05:30:35 pm »
Picked up my 1290 R this morning. :biggrin: :peepwall:   Bit of a long wait at the dealer, was there at 8am, only left with the bike after 11:30 which, for someone doubting his purchase a bit is a VERY long time.

Anyhoo, now to get the run-in kms done.     

Somehow they managed to screw up the software update though so even though it's on the newest version, none of the KTM MY RIDE features are there at all.   Will have to go back on Monday I guess.

I didn't wanna add anymore than absolutely necessary to the finance, so basically no extras, but I kept my bashplate and topbox.  Lost the Akra, but I was kind of getting over it anyway. It's a lot of money for a name and not much else.   The stock Superduke can sounds much better and will be cheap to replace if/when I ding it haha

Little annoyed that the bluetooth etc doesn't work.  But hell the rest is good. The motor does feel like it's gonna be a beast!   Tryna take it easy for the first 1000kms though.

yes, I realise you were a bit squeezed with the finances - I have the Wings shorty and love the sound - maybe in a couple of months you can pick up something here - Enjoy!

My issue is complete unavailability of any Bluetooth features on the bike. There is no option to pair or even look for a device at all. So I think it wasn’t loaded during the bike setup.

I highly doubt it's the same as yours.  There is no way to even start any pairing or anything.  You push "SET" and it's just Info, Motorcycle, Settings and Preferences.  No options for KTM MY RIDE or any other Bluetooth anywhere (even in each of those menus.)   No Bluetooth sign in the bottom left corner either. Between the time and Temp.

Ya, you see mine doesnt have that.   It's like it was never installed.

I have had issues with my TFT screen since day 2 of ownership. They replaced it last Saturday.

Yeah I'm thinking about just banging in the 1000kms and getting it all sorted at the service.  I want them to check the front wheel/tyre also. It feels a bit twitchy over 130ish and looks to have a bit of a wobble in it.  It's not terrible though.

I tested the demo with the TKC 80's on, when under power from about 150 onwards it start to snake heavily. If you close the throttle its gets better. TKC 80 has the 160 max rating. I changed mine before delivery to Pirelli Scorpions, free of charge.

Yeah.  It also settled down a lot by the time I had put a few hundred kms on.     The TKC's were great on my 1190 though.
