Please, please, pleeeease do not ever buy an Italian motorbike!
I am of Italian descent, and frankly, the motherland hasn't produced anything of technological value since Leonardo DaVinci. Except wine and cheese, and I am sure some of you would agree, I have enough whine already.
Nope. I wouldn't buy an Italian bicycle and I won't buy an Italian motorcycle.
Man, I love that sushi!
no too many twin cylinder dirt machines aside from the orange ocean liner
You're ever so right. But to me this is more about the way one puts it. This KTM is no piece of shit. Period. The MultiStrada isn't either, and I never called it that. But mine was, and I called it that. The flaws on mine made my travelling on the bike both dangerous (life-threatening at the worst) and impossible at times. My Duc dealer admitted a couple of weeks ago that I did have a really bad one, the worst that they heard of. Doesn't help me now, does it?
Anthony has no issues like mine, IMO. And like I said: he's pretty unlucky, but these are no things a halfway decent mechanic couldn't fix under warranty. I respect his anger, but this whole thread is going nowhere. Anthony's still 'pissing vinegar', no matter what we say. (Dutch saying-hope it doesn't need explaining)
pm me ill talk you through it my bike is sick fast
trust me the factor brings out the hooligan in ya
Probably the iddle issue is only a too lean mix. My suggestion is to forget about your KTM service and try in another shop with good mechanics that have experience in CV caburetors, that are not rare.
The only bike with fuel filter that I know is the Honda Africa Twin. No other.
Ya, know I am new to this whole motorcycle thing, but fuel filters seem like a "no-brainer" to me. Dirt gets in gasoline. Dirt in your carburator or injector is bad. Fuel filter would prevent that. They have air filters after all.
the thing with fuel filters in an adventure bike is that if it gets choked, you'll burn the fuel pump...
Anyway your bike sucks, it is a real piece of shit .
.... (makes you feel a litle better, doesn't it?)
