    If you can't turn your heated grips and heated seats on yourself through the menu then the dealer didn't configure your bike right at delivery. There should be one selection in the menu to enable the heated grips, once that's turned on then you should be able to control the heat level.

    The issue with the illuminated controls flashing when the KTM heated grips are set to "Medium" or "Minimum" still exists after many attempts by a different dealer to reprogram as told by KTM via message given. Dealer decided to keep the bike so he can get a live KTM tech. on the phone come Monday to help diagnose the issue live. Just guessing, but either the heated grips are defective or not installed properly (which would be hard to do). I sure hope they don't have to pull the tank off again to unplug them because that always seems to create more issues afterwards when service re-installs all those parts (recent and past experience) back onto the bike.

    I only have 4200 miles but the same thing. The dealer reset it for me last time. Going to wait until I take it in for the fuel pump TSB and possibly get the dash replaced due to non connectivity of Bluetooth.

    I pretty much have to power it up and shut it off once before the dash reads correctly, the first cycle I get either a blank screen or something weird like french readings and or S model suspension mode settings. And yet the speed limiter hangs in there.........

    so what does the dealer / ktm say? I'm guessing you are hearing the sound of crickets chirping

    I wondered that myself and found nothing on the issue.

    wondered what ?
    if are there any changes to the 2018?

    I just spoke to my dealer about a few things and asked if any 2018 updates or changes on 1290 SAR and he says no
    it was all new 2017 and a fairly late in year release

    yes, wondered about changes. Obviously there are no mechanical redesigns, nothing re-engineered , but I wondered if there was an updated electronic package, etc.

    The My Ride Nav App is the only new thing they’ve teased us with so far and it’ll work on the 17’s.

    They aren’t going to scrap the current software and start putting out stuff that isn’t compatible with a one year old model.

    After taking the bike to a new dealership in Virginia to fix the issue with the heated grips and the illuminated controls flickering the issue was diagnosed yesterday after being in the shop for 5 days. KTM had the dealer run over a dozen checks to connections and programming to isolate the problem. Turns out the issue is exactly what I thought when I dropped the bike off, the heated grips is causing the computer error and erratic lighted controls flickering. Once the grips were unplugged and the programming reset the illuminated controls worked normally. KTM is sending out a new set of heated grips for installation, and hopefully these won't cause any problems.

    Still curious if the blown 10 Amp accessory fuse I discover after taking delivery is connected with this issue in any way. I replaced the fuse in order to get my accessory plugs to work and everything with them has been fine since. Maybe there is some internal wire grounding inside the heated grips that cause the blown fuse and the controls flickering? Oh well, at least the bike is working 100% without the grips plugged in, so hopefully the new ones will be fine.

    Got a call this afternoon saying the bike is fixed and new heated grips installed. Didn't go into detail over the phone as he had other customers to work with but I will talk with him on Friday morning when I go to pick up the bike. Really happy to get my bike back and start working on those break-in miles. My new license plate arrived earlier this week too.

    My bestie!
    Bought it in october, only done ca 500km on it yet.
    On monday it’s off to the dyno!

    Got the PC V, Ignition module, Autotune, Rottie stage 5 and a full Arrow system installed.

    Haven’t connected those VisionX Halos yet but will do so maybe next week when it’s done on the dyno.

    Then of course, the knobbie tires (anakee wild) goes back on aswell.

    Heated seat and handles are a great option, as you can see we have snow here.

    Not much left on the wishlist now

    You are obviously not a dirt bike rider, the reference is from "Roosting" as in spraying rocks and dirt from behind your bike. "RUOOST" was as close as I could get to "ROOST" but fellow dirt riders will know to keep their distance
    with the warning sign in front of them :lol3.

    Looks like the only thing you could add is upper crash bars given the long Winters there and the certain bike drops that will occur.

    Well that's bizarre, I have 13K on my bike now and just noticed my clock resetting, I didn't notice it until now so it just started. Seems odd that around this mileage both ours are doing the same.

    It must be somehow connected to the service settings interval. Mine went a long time without doing it also. It is tough to get it reset, but once I do it will stay correct for months. Weird!!!!

    It's probably related to aerodynamics.
