Re: KTM 890R- The Super Scalpel!

230 notes for a first service! My 690 was labour only, about 80 quid I think.

Re: Engine oil and service intervals.

The Condition Based Servicing on my Mini said I had 17,000 miles before the next change was due when I picked it up. It was a 1.6 turbo that made 211 bhp. They are renowned for having cam chain issues due to low/poor quality oil. It got to 10,000 miles and I had to change it, there was no way that ...

Re: Upbikers

I sat on my mates 260kg odd 1190 Adv R with the preload wound up (he's a big bloke) and it was way too tall of me. But I don't think I'd be looking at a strap on clown shoe as the solution if I wanted to buy one

Re: Engine oil and service intervals.

All my bikes till the 690 got the recommended oil weight and usually semi synth. Most often Castrol. Would service at 3k miles with oil and filters. The 690 came with Putoline 10/60 when recommended is Motrex 10/60. So for first couple of years I topped up with Putoline. From the 3rd service the dea...

Re: KTM 890R- The Super Scalpel!

Hope this one is better than the last :thumbup: I still think the 790 would probably be ideal for me and certainly cheaper than the XSR but I think after 5.5 years of KTM ownership I want to be able to sleep at night without worrying about KTM stuff :lol:

Re: New bike..possibly.

That sounds odd I'd have thought a GS would be fine at a 90 mph cruise. Quite possibly just me. I’m used to 4’s or in the last case my Sprint so it sounds a bit clattery :o You wanna try a 690 Duke :lol: I won't start it without ear plugs cos the noise scares the shit outta me Sounds about right.

Re: Foggy Petronas FP1

It was like running out of fuel on a carbed bike, the way you would fumble around for the tap, the more throttle you give the slower it goes, you know what i mean. Having had a fuel tap diaphragm go on my Firestorm when in the outside lane of the motorway at 95 and then needing to get to the hard s...

We need more info on this! Interesting bikes them, not hearing the best on reliability front but would be good to know an owners experience. I'd love the Tuono version if it wasn't 10k and council spec vs the RS version. His RS660 story won't help anyone and Louigi and Marco from Aprilia may be kno...

Re: Covid restrictions - are you adhering or not?

I went to a kids train set play place yesterday and then Duxford. Train place I'd say about half were wearing masks but of those almost half had them around their chins? Not sure I understand this. Duxford I'd say 2/3rds in masks worn properly. I wore a mask inside as from what I've read it can hel...
