Share what you did to your KTM 790 Duke with the community!

Example: Took my KTM 790 Duke in to service today for an oil change. Can't wait till she gets broken in.

Example: Gave my KTM 790 Duke a nice wash followed by a coat of wax for protection.

Example: Installed new lever guards :)

Anything goes....

It did a bit last night, but sunny this afternoon in fact the low sunshine was almost a bit dangerous riding home as it was blindingly straight into my forward vision. This is the time of year when the bad collisions occur due to low sunlight and dark mornings.
Ride safe those who venture out on their motorcycles.

I agree low sunshine particularly if the roads are wet can be a real blinder.


but never mind it seems a lot of people have night vision installed in their cars, well I presumed so as so many do not need lights perhaps this helps too!!!!

Enough is enough. After nearly three months of ownership.
Fault after fault, the bike has been sold back to the dealership for a refund.


I can honestly say I will never buy another KTM. The warranty is not worth the paper it is printed on.


I have the following for sale as complete package if anyone is interested. The Evotech items have been fitted, but have had less than 100 miles of usage.

Thanks. I have other bikes so not a total loss!
With the unresolved issues, I had serious doubts of the integrity and safety of the 790 Duke:sad:

DukeNukem,
Sorry to hear about the trouble that you had with the 790. Just so I can monitor my own bike for these issues, would you mind elaborating on some of the issues you had?
If you have already stated and I have overlooked it I apologize.

Thanks
