Think that’s an 890 in disguise, physical proportions and all... I can be wrong though :)
Is the new 490
No on an 890.....single front rotor.....
Anyone get a Mojavi bag fitted on a 790?
Hi, have someone lowered 790R? Is it possible with zega lowering kit for xplor EXC with original springs? Or need more things to change?
Wife lost one of the keys to her 790.
Ordered a blank key from KTM ($45) and waited a few weeks.
Dealer said I need to have the key laser cut so I took the new key to a locksmith ($45) and had a copy made.
The new key fits in the ignition and the instrument display turns on, but I get a big red error message that says “KEY FAILURE”.
What do I do know? The locksmith checked for any chips in the OEM key and said there wasn’t one.
There is! Get back to your dealer.
With the bike you got a Key Code card. You need that card for ordering a new key.
Might be cool in orange?!
(Damn AXP, show us!)
Anybody know what "Immobilizer Failure" means?
I rode down to the station, bought gas, and when I turned the key back on the dash didn't light up. I turned the key off and back on several times (I think it was 3 times, but I'm not certain) then the dash came on, and showed "IMMOBILIZER FAILURE." The bike started, and I pulled across the parking lot, shut it off, and called my dealer. They had no idea what it meant and suggested bringing the bike in to hook up to the computer. Since it's a 3 hour ride I'd said that wasn't convenient. We went back and forth on a few questions (including "Was the bike upside down?" .... "Not today!") and he said "I'm not really sure, we'd need to hook it up to the computer and see what it says."
After that, I turned the key on, the message was gone, and I rode all weekend without any problems at all. It was pretty cold out so I'm figuring maybe some sensor just had a mis-read or error and it cleared.
You know, in this day and age (21st f'n century), on bikes this sophisticated you'd think we could just call up the dealer, and have the bike interrogated via BT via our cell which would have a diagnostic portal app which communicates with the dealers computer. How about them apples? I mean it's pretty ubiquitous nowadays when we're on a site or have an issue with something we own that we go to their site, and click 'speak to a representative' and bingo, we're all set up for working through the issue, or in some cases they remote in to see whats up.
Or would this be seen as taking money out of the dealers hands? But think of all the happy customers hundreds or thousands of km's away who would be eternally grateful in many cases for such a service. Hell, make it part of a service package.
pg 14, I believe, in the repair manual:
It is stuff like this that keeps pushing me to the old school bikes.... Must be a big theft issue in Europe or elsewhere.
Fixt that for you Bob.
Yeah, but it isn't slowing down the spare parts black market any I bet!
New wife? HaHa
And all this added expense of cutting, and coding new keys comes out of the settlement!
...mind you she'll have the bike.
Hah! You could have a point but seeing how most have no clue how to drive a stick anymore I really wonder how big of an issue this is...
Then again I once wanted some one to steal my old Strom so I parked it out front of my cabin with the keys in it. Woke up in the morning and I'll be damned if some one didn't park another Strom next to it with it's keys in the ignition as well... I never catch a break.
