    OK, cool I’ll try that. So is this the pic for the final adjustment you mention, 17 clicks out?

    And yeah, no manual included with new bikes from now on with KTM. These damned accountants make decisions which are completely unreasonable. How the hell are you meant to print the whole manual off, then carry that on the bike? As this is the sort of bike that will be ridden in places with no phone signal, what the hell are these idiots thinking when they make decisions like this?

    that we live in 2020 and everyone carries at least 1 smartphone (along with power bank, etc.)
    and that a PDF file opens without the need of internet connection

    ...just saying

    So, if you had the printed manual by KTM, would you carry it all the time on the bike?

    I have the complete repair manual on my phone, I always forget to carry my reading glasses so trying to zoom in on the phone must look pretty amusing to anyone watching me.

    Yep 17 clicks counter clockwise. Also I am about 190 all geared up. That sucks glad I received one when I bought mine.

    So you think it’s acceptable to just stop printing manuals then? Why should we have to carry power banks and have to scroll around on a phone to look something up?

    OK, I’ll try that and see how it goes. I’m obviously the bad guy for expecting a printed manual when spending £11,000 on a bike.

    Yes. Using a smartphone with a find function in a PDF manual is infinitely quicker and easier than using a print manual.

    My bike came with a printed manual. Talk to your dealer. Yours should have come with one too.

    I spoke to my dealer, and called 3 others, but KTM have stopped printing manuals now. There's none on eBay either.

    Must be a UK/Europe thing, because in the US they come with paper manuals (which means KTM didn't stop printing), but PDF is much much better...unless you want to carry that thick ass book on the bike everywhere you go.

    the US version is a different part number, so they may well have stopped printing the EU version - in multiple languages, no less.

    Not anymore. All 2021 bikes no longer come with instruction booklets.

    No way.. not with my eyes and a small phone screen :waysad but on a tablet as I happens to have on the bike it's pretty ok :-)
    But I still belive the saving is quite stupid and I can't add my own comments and stuff in the pdf with ease..
    I still have an old fashioned analogue calender in my pocket... nothing beats it for me. Viva the analouge revolution:gerg:D

    I did not get one either but I had one printed AND I carry a PDF on my device mostly because of the search ability of a good PDF.

    I have the .pdf on my phone, and if need be I just use a sat uplink to print off a page back at home, call the wife and ask her to read things out to me while I place the cell on speaker. :photog
