KTM RC8 Kaoko Throttle Cruise ControlThe trouble with installing a cruise control on a sport bike is always the requirement to remove your bar end weight on that side. This increases vibration on that one side and will eventually drive you crazy (in addition to possible ulnar/radial nerve damage). Kaoko has built a Throttle Cruise Control specifically for the KTM RC8 and with a bar weight incorporated in the design you don't have to worry about that problem anymore. Looking to take a trip on your RC8 here soon? You will need one of these. They are worth their weight in gold!

KTMTwins Tech Tip of the Month

Leaking fork seals have been a known issue with KTM Suspension for years. What most people don't know is you can reduce the problem by allowing bleeding the built up air that gets trapped in your forks after every ride. All you need is to replace the air bleed screw that is on your forks with either the KTM Stainless Steel Bleed Screw or Motion Pro Aluminum Bleed Screw. This gives you access to bleed that air out of your forks without the need for tools. This should be a religious exercise before (and after) every ride.

Customer KTM of the Month

Paul and his buddies are out of Australia and are by far some of our best customers. We worked with him for months to get all of the custom bits that are featured on his bike. He is proud of it and we are too. If you have a grand plan to convert your motorcycle to something you can be proud of, feel free to email us and let us know what you would like to do. And Paul, keep up the good work mate!
