Hello from Finland!

Postby Kotari » Wed Dec 02, 2015 4:31 pm

Hello!

First of all, great to be here. I have been reading this forum for a while and i decided that this is the place where i wanna share my KTM things to other people! I have KTM 1290 Super Duke R 2015, i bought it in june and i just love it! :D

SDR is the third motorcycle that I bought. The first was the Kawasaki ER-6n 2007 , the second was the Suzuki GSX-R 1000 K8. Summer is short and rainy here in Finland , but I would not let it bother my hobbies!

Here's my bike:

PS: My english is't very good and this is my first forum ever, so if i make mistakes, please be patient! :D I just hope that my photo will appear in the message..

Thanks! Posting the picture was quite easy, when I read all the topics that had something to do with the Photobucket website :mrgreen:
I need to use the Google translator in a little bit, because there are some words that I do not know how to write in English, but I guess the writing will become easier in time.

Hello again!

It's been long time since i have visited here the last time. Great to see that things have not changed around here. I had some rough time with my SDR just 3weeks ago. I totalled the bike, but i got only couple bruises and really annoying back pain. I'm glad that my insurance-company worked everything really well and fast. So, now i'm waiting to get my new bike from the dealer. I'm gonna buy one of the demo-bikes from the same dealer that i bought my other SDR. I'm aiming for the 2017 Super Duke R. I will hit you guys with a picture and details of the bike when i get it home.

Cheers,

-Kotari-

Glad to hear you're mostly alright and that insurance is taking care of you, especially with how much you guys have to pay for it out there.

So, here is my new SDR:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/gn5sv4nmzku7m ... 8.jpg?dl=0

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1oo2nqbtrqi3b ... 4.jpg?dl=0

Here's a list what parts i have for it:

Already installed KTM tail tidy, tank cover stickers, decail-kit, Track-pack and performance-pack. I made a deal with insurance-company that i can keep all my power parts etc from the old bike. Sooo, i also have Rottweiler intake + sas-removal + Power commander V + autotune AT300 + power part ergo seats + MIVV exhaust silencer waiting for install.

I think 2015 SDR does have little bit different de-cat than this 2017? I have Bodis racing de-cat but i'm pretty sure i have to buy a new one for this little beast right here.

What do you think should i have Akrapovic-map installed to the ecu or just get my Power commander adjusted by local dynojet-dude if i hit my intake kit etc to the bike?
