Its not affecting the performance of the bike or such, but unburnt fuel/richer AFM will result in a drop in mileage. Ill get it checked into during the service.
    Ezil, backfires are almost usually caused by lean mixture, not rich mixture, rich mixture, lean mixture, the EFI system will automatically correct itself, slight backfire is common. But if you experience them persistently to the extent every moment it backfires the moment you decelerate, you might have to diagnose your EFI system with the diagnostics tool to get it rectified or whatever the case may be.

    Sometimes adulterated fuel too causes uneven fluctuation in RPM, as one of our buddy, Krish experienced this problem (Thanks for the info Krish)

    But then, again, mixture won't affect the performance low down, but top end might be slightly sluggish due to the same mixture, do get it rectified.

    Cheers!

    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    Default KTM Duke 390 -Akrapovic Exhaust -SLIP-ON EXHAUST SYSTEM

    Hi

    Any one got the Akrapovic Exhaust for the Duke 390, if so from where in India?

    his Akrapovic slip-on silencer is a match in terms of material and workmanship for the high-end silencers on larger bikes. High-quality looks, sports sound and really simple to fit.
    • Stainless steel outer skin and internal parts: optimum mix of weight savings and durability
    • Slip-on silencer including pre-silencer
    • More torque and power in the mid rev range, approx. +5 hp
    • Includes specially tuned engine mapping
    • Street legal

    Since you are already waiting, try connecting with Pune folks. KTM Baner will most likely have an answer (& it may a negative also ).
    If you get a 'yes', I guess it'll arrive before the Bangy guys get clues about arrival of new stock.

    I hope you know they are no more available in KTM SVC, now you can only buy them through authorised dealers selling metzellers in India. Thats the latest intel on tires.

    Thumbs up Re: KTM Duke 390 - Owners Reviews and Experiences

    Hi guys done with second service bike feels more smoother after the second service one minor issue is the squeaking noise from the front brakes only comes when the brakes are applied lightly if I put more pressure , their is no noise .

    The svc guys said that its normal issue they cleaned the pads it was fine after a few kms its back are any of you guys facing same issue.

    Other than that the bike is awesome.

    the brake pads are not the culprit.. it can be the piston needs some cleaning.. happened with my ZMR front disc once, after cleaning the piston the sound stopped..
