The dealer was unable to install the map. I will be back in a month or so to get the first service done, so I am hoping they can do it then.

Never heard of a booster plug. Running as is right now, no issues. I'm sure it needs the re-map but it still works, and makes a great noise.

Thanks for the update. Any way you could post a video of the idle / rev? I'm considering getting the Remus. Did you end up plugging those foot peg bolt holes? I was on the R&G racing website and noticed they make a bolt / plate kit to replace the pegs.

Here is a link to a video another forum member posted. It is on a 2015 but sounds exactly the same.


I ended up putting the passenger pegs back on because the wife wanted to go for a ride.

Dang, the dealer told me the Track Pack came with the bike, and since I have been waiting months, not good to here otherwise. Getting the stickers off looks nice, just peel or some sort of fluid?

The stickers come off with a little elbow grease. No fluid or heat necessary.

Update: This weekend I installed a K&N Filter, KTM Powerparts Ergo Seats and Cyclops LED headlight. The pictures don't do the headlight justice, it's like looking into the damn sun.


New Look with the ergo seats:

LED High Beam from a distance. I was seeing spots for at least 5 minutes after taking this

Glad to see the old Ergo seats still fit the new bike.

Nice LEDs!

Was it plug-and-play?

What's the reason for the 12-15 ergo seats not the 16- new style?

Is the old style better?

Yes, it was plug and play, except for having to disassemble the clip holding the H4 base on. The LED H4 has a massive base compared to a standard H4, so the clip won't fit over the base without taking it apart. Not too difficult, just took a few minutes to figure it out.
