The New 2017 Duke.
A new catalytic converter as a result of which, the bike gets a side-mounted exhaust instead of an underbelly exhaust.

Since I have had Duke the back brake has always been totally rubbish & every service I had the KTM dealer check it out & every time they said it was ok. Well this last time was it for me & I had a feeling that it was the pads was to blame & ordered a set of SBS pads. Pads arrived & now fitted & what a total difference it has made; the back brake is so much stronger it’s making the front feel wooden, so I think I will change the front pads now for a set of SBS.

Here my onboard video ;) KTM RC390 at TT Assen

Well the bike went for the service & check.
Didn't find the problem & charged me £131.90 for not much more than an oil & filter change + updated the ECU Software

I have now had a cable made to connect my OBD2 reader & there is no codes stored in the bikes fault code memory. But after talking to the main dealer about the problem he told me that have had a few with issues of water getting into an electrical connecting block & this might be the case with mine. Well it’s booked in for the 12th of this month for them to investigate the problem. Now that I have a cable to connect to the bikes diagnostics plug I can connect to my Bluetooth adaptor & use the Torque Pro app I have on my phone & monitor some of the bikes readings.

I was going to do my first year service next week, but I have decide to have it dealer serviced so as not to effect any warranty claim.  As the bike has just had a malfunction which may result in such a claim.
 I was filtering through traffic & got to the front of the traffic lights sandwiched between the traffic, the lights changed to go & I opened up the throttle the bike accelerated & then de-accelerated & kept repeating this. I manage to get up to 25 MPH with vehicles around me wondering what the hell I was playing at. It then sorted it’s self out & ran the 60 miles back home without a problem.
Modern bikes with modern problems means you have to have the manufactures diagnostics machine to read the stored fault code. :(

My KTM 390 Duke is one year old in a few days’ time & I’ve had a great time. But the annoying tinny vibration sound from day one is still there (main dealer hadn’t a clue) & I have had to sort out the back brake seizing up 3 times. The first service was done by the supplying dealer M&S motorcycles Newcastle & I live 30 miles away but they wouldn’t give me a courtesy bike so spent over 8 hours walking the streets of Newcastle. So this next service will be done by me & I’ll post some pic’s.
