    Ltd edition Dougie.
    It's the KTM Bushmills. Very fast but equally as thirsty! Handling is great but only for the first 1/4 of the tank. Then it all goes to rat shit! :kissing:

    Thanks. George and Dave have both been in contact. I am waiting for the return address and will send the affected parts back for them to examine. If all goes well I will still try a new set of levers if they find the problem.

    i was in the KTM dealers in Perth and they seemed to have a few different 1290s..the R,S,SE,Adventure & GT although not sure if they were all current models?

    Edit..probably only one was called the Superduke though:confused:

    Your right actually, I forgot about the superduke GT! More touring focused, its got a screen, more bodywork and semi active suspension, dont know about the rest of them, probably earlier models as you say

    Daytona MOT! FAIL :sob::sob::sob:

    Fork seal and bars need adjusting :eek:. The good news is I was going to get the fork oil changed anyway so will get it all done. :):):)

    Happiness is a Daytons 955i with adjustable bars by Paolo Tarozzi! Comfort for an old man's back :):):)

    Right I am going to say it then hide behind DD's sofa! ... KTM is the best build quality bike I have ever owned, don't know if it's because their roots lay in Moto Cross and Enduro, but they are just so well put together and the quality of the components is fantastic!

    Very smart, deffo adds to the overall look of the bike. Can I ask what are those crash/scratch protectors called on your petrol tank? And where can you get them from? Thanks

    Had bike retuned three weeks a go, to suit the 905 cc big bore with high compression pistons and my porting work, well I serviced my front forks today, drained and replaced fork oils then refueled and test run, had 204klm on trip meter and I couldn't get 9 litres in !!! That's better than 22 klms/ltr , so not only did the tuning get me more torque & horsepower but my fuel economy is outa sight better TOO.
    Well pleased, dilli you need to get your bpos tuned ... see what improvement you get ? Start with my early tune installed and then begin the dyno tune works from there.. !

    Cheers capt

    2 sides to this -

    My 03 250 Enduro , 4 stroke, starts every time on the button, can be sat for months over the summer. Quality of engineering is brilliant, attention to detail of even the smallest part is great. Changing the 2 oil filters is more akin to changing batteries in a watch than doing an oil change, beautifully machined and manufactured parts.

    My mates 1290 Super Duke thing - cams worn through less than a year old, stripped engine down and it was totally knackered !!! He flogged it soon after getting all the work done on warranty. Stupidly bought a BMW :confounded:

    I had the older Super Duke 990, got it from new and had it nearly 5 years, didn't do massive miles (16K) but never had a single problem. A couple of mates have KTM's one of which is the 1290 which is just coming up 3 years old & no problems, maybe your mate got a Friday pm bike!
