Red loctite: removal?

After fighting mightily with the centre stand bolt removal on my Multistrada (red loctite...only way to cleanly remove them is to heat with a torch), I would like to know how difficult it is to...

Maps/Tuner

Richard, thanks, and good to hear from a local with the same bike. I have to learn more about options with tuning vs maps on the KTM. I'm familiar with Powercommanders and Trimming programs on my...

Thanks again ...

I haven't yet got the various things needed to fine tune, or even identify the map...its bone stock right now and in Canada I would be surprised if they loaded the unrestricted Euro map, so that all...

Great, thanks. That solves that part of the puzzle, although this pie pan with a pie in it seems like a pretty bizarre piece of engineering.

What am I missing?

Miraculously, I returned to where I recall detecting the change in exhaust note to search for the screen/screw retainer, and actually found both!

I suspect there must be something missing still,...

Oil screen question

Just about to do the first oil change on 2013 500 EXC. The manual refers to using a "pin wrench" when you insert the long screen into the engine on the side. My dealer said they just use a...

Timely

I have often ridden all year around in Vancouver (it does get cold, rainy, and even snowy/icy here) on other bikes, but always with a pickup as backup. Last fall I sold the pickup and got the GS...

Belated hard seating?

Simple thing to try

It may not work, but if you just take off the connector and clean the connections with circuit cleaner, and put some dielectric grease in it when you put it back together, it may help. This improved...

Timely 1200 GS experience

I have to say that I was very dissappointed with the fact that my transmission seals started leaking at 15,000 Km. That the gear indicator malfunctioned before that, didn't thrill me either. ...

So it was finally dry all day, albeit right around freezing. I did a hard 200 km ride and it used 200 ml of oil....so much for my "idling in commuter traffic" theory. I give up, no apparent...

Well, the 32/34 psi yields less than 10% increase in temperature, more like 5%. I wouldn't want to go much lower in pressure to get up to 10% though! Already have squared off tires!

Less consumption with mileage

My '05 1200GS burns just less than 1 litre/ 1000 km. I bought it with 10000 km on it, and now it has 13500 km. I know how to check the oil level. My question is how many people who have...

Confused

My 12GS manual refers to 2.2 bars front and 2.5 rear. That translates to 32/36 psi (1 up). All of these posts indicate much higher pressures...what gives?

That is one problem I don't have

Mine so far has started happily down to -10 celcius. If you don't pull the clutch in, it definitely has a hard time. I've never had to open the throttle.

low temperatures and oil consumption

I bought my GS used with a GSA seat on it. Apparently the person who traded it in for a GSA preferred the GS seat. I personally find the GSA seat tilts too much forward for my liking.
