    Ok, for some reason my traction control doesn't want to turn off anymore. Anyone got any ideas?

    Be nice if we could just turn it off permanently or on the fly! What were KTM thinking???

    If you install the Bad Fuel Dongle, you can turn it off permanently.

    No. You have to select 80 Octane first.

    Connecting it changes how the ABS and TC function though. They stay off when the ignition is reset if they were already off.

    I have no idea why it works like that.

    I have the dongle, cause I thought you could turn them off permanently without effecting anything, but then it limits the power to 100 hp as in when you are in off road mode.

    Are you saying if you select the 80 octane you get the 150 hp back?

    The bike shop said I was stuck with the 100 hp with the dongle fitted.

    Hmmm... I thought it didn't affect anything until the 80 Octane was selected.

    Have you been told that it limits Sport and Road settings to 100hp when it is installed?

    Yeah, that is what I was told and certainly didn't feel like ful power when I had it connected.

    I can feel a difference between Sport/Road and Rain/Dirt with the dongle plugged in and I can feel a difference between Sport/Road and Rain/Dirt with it unplugged.

    I can't feel a difference between Sport with the dongle plugged in or Sport with it unplugged.

    My dealers mechanic also reckons it limits Sport/Road to 100hp.
    I can't feel it.
