    Ok, I guess it helps to read the owner’s manual thoroughly! :(

    I figured it out. The Trip1 and AVS1 (average speed) only work when the STP1 (stopwatch) is active! If STP1 is reset to zero or off then Trip1 and AVS1 are reset as well. See attached pic.

    Oh, thx a lot. I will give this a try. The thing which is strange in my opinion, is that trip 1 was working in the beginning and than stopped working so I switched to Trip2 ;-)
    But all in all this function is not that intuitive........

    Kind regards from Germany

    Sorry, I don't understand your question. Maybe you can make it a bit more clear.

    Kind regards

    midway between a Honda and ktm would be a fair answer ?

    IN both performance and quality perspective - you get niggly little things like the frame for the front screen having welding that would seem cheap on a ktm but normal on a jap bike, rubber grommets on the frame where plastics are held on like a jap bike (ktm use light alloy bolts ), the suspension is adequate but not outstanding - better than a Honda but not a ktm. Metal tank...on a dirt bike...ktm would never do that....

    think klr 650 but with a 10 year newer design rather than a ktm beater? Perhaps this is sour grapes- I was really hoping for something to repeat my fond memories of a ktm 640....the sd is definitely not that bike. So I bought an rs 650 and will make my own version.

    If you do alot of road i would go for the SD, if more offroad the ktm is a better machine (also 500km is new ) and a rally wont need more mods (altough i guess she is not covered by a warranty anymore)

    Is it just me or is the fuel gauge a little off. I had one bar left on the gauge this morning and filled the tank with 11 ltrs. If the specs are to believed I should have another 8ltrs in the tank.

    I'm not prepared to risk it and get left short.

    It is made by a company called Pipeworks Techniques and costs Au$300. He has a jig to make more of these.

    There is a 10kg saving between changing the exhaust and fitting a lithium battery.

    You can contact him on facebook (Noel) search for Pipeworks Techniques

    P.S. The mid pipe ends in a 45mm pipe which is not ideal. I would get him to finish the pipe with a 51mm id pipe so that most silencers can be used. I ended up buying a midpipe joiner so I could fit a normal silencer.

    If you managed to put 11 litres of fuel in your tank you more than likely had about 5 litres left. The last 2 litres to make it 18 could take a while to drip feed it in.
    My bike has about 4 litres left when the last bar comes on.

    Enjoy it!

    The only thing I didn’t like about the PR7 is the routing of the exhaust pipes under near the right side engine cover and the placement of the rear brake pedal. Doesn’t look very durable there.
