Love it on and off road. Never had it turned of. I also have a Rekluse and they work well together.
Yes. Hardly need to use the clutch, only when you want to. Never stalls.
Sorry to prick your Noob-ness buddy... But opinions are like arseholes...
You most certainly haven’t offended me... Your naivety and sense of right has played you.
Everyone has a right to an opinion... but your’s is shallow given your time here.
‘Useless features’... Mirror, mirror on the wall
Isn't the internet fun?
Right, we should get rid of everything fun and/or helpful if it's deemed unnecessary.
I just added the QS+ and CC to my order this morning. I though, what the heck, go for it!
In the immortal words of the Bard, methinks though doth protest too much
The consensus is that you are being a thin skinned crybaby. @braaap! even made sure to point out in his initial response he was just taking the piss out of you. I assume you know what that means and you had a temper tantrum anyway. If you don't know what that means, my apologies to you for having led such a sheltered life.
You obviously don't have what it takes to ride with us if you can't even take a good ribbing. I bet you ride solo, don't you?
It's not a useless feature, a mere gimmick, or a waste of money, at least certainly not as a blanket statement. I could call anything over 50hp useless, or 6+ inches of suspension travel useless, or passenger pages useless but even if I did feel that way it wouldn't make it a universal truth. Besides... the QS+ is free (well, included in the purchase price). I don't know of a single person that actually tried the QS+ that found it not working straight from the factory. The few people I've seen mention that it's not enabled from the factory seem to have also not tried it before paying for the menu option... Only the ability to turn it on and off from the menu cost extra from what I've seen.
I found the QS+ both functional and fun to play with in the twisties, especially for downshifts coming into corners. Necessary? Heck no, but then again I don't own bikes out of necessity, it's all about what I like or don't like. The nature of how it functions caused me an occasional unintentional shift when my boot touched the shifter so I disabled it and haven't looked back, *shrug*.
Given the overall responses in this thread more people prefer than don't. The market speaks, KTM made the right call.
The fact that I have it disabled and don't miss it means nada. Not everyone is as skilled as I am.
(Yes that's me havin an Aussie Piss, LOL)
Nothing a few cold ones in person wouldn't fix I bet. Just wait till March or April...
'...and I can hardly wait'.
Who knew this would be such a contentious topic.
I bought the bike out of state, had the dealer turn it off and didnt touch it for a month
Got home and was farting around locally and decided to give it a shot. It certainly produced a smile. I still turn it off while off pavement.
So just to get this straight, it’s still enabled when the bikes new then gets turned off after any visit to dealer/hooked up to computer?
seems like a crack dealer. Just give you a taste
@CalamariKid you make a decision yet
Sure you are, but there's an art to it.
My quick shifter was enabled when the bike was delivered. I kinda wish I could turn it off but I can't.
Ah, the ignore button. As useful as CC.
You can unbolt the sensor and zip tie it away from the magnet and disable it without issue.
That didn't seem to work for me. I got a check engine light on all of the time, until I put the sensor back in place.
FWIW, I don't see much use for QS for the mostly off-road riding that I do, but having to pay just to disable it seems pretty cheesy.
I own a 1290SAR and have been looking at the 790. I really like the QS on the 1290, but in some technical situations in which I prefer full manual control, the clutch lever is there for me. Why on the 790 is it necessary to pay to have the option to turn QS off, as opposed to simply not using it?
O, I read that someone else had done it and it worked fine with no light.
As Ronski said above, it didn't work for him but I read that another inmate had done it without issue so who knows? Worth a shot maybe but sorry if it doesn't!
You have to pay extra for that option
