Rottweiler GT Exhaust Conversion

Rottweiler GT Exhaust Conversion

Been working on my 2017 KTM SDGT slowly making the Dynojet Conversion. First, the O2 dongles ( http://www.rottweilerperformance.com...-dongles-pair/ ); Nice but, bike got very hot (not the radiator). Second, PCV ( http://www.rottweilerperformance.com...ercommander-v/ ); very nice but, low temps & high altitude (>4,500 ft) affected bike performance. Lastly, Dynojet Dual Tune ( http://www.rottweilerperformance.com...ual-wide-band/ ) with 18 mm O2 bungs (http://www.rottweilerperformance.com...18mm-radiused/ ) & ceramically coated OEM exhaust/ Bodis Midpipe (Custom Job);

SOOOO SSMMMMOOOOOOTTTHHHHHH!!! Bike actually got a bit cooler?? AWSOME!!! Highly Recommend!!!

Thanks to Will & Gary (Owner) at Rottweiler Performance for assisting me with the complete conversion. This is the way the KTM SDGT should come stock but, doubt the bike would make emission standards. Yes, my KTM Dealer is aware & is honoring my OEM Warrenty. After all it was them that recommended the PCP SAS/ Evap removal ( https://www.powercellperformance.com...-kit-ktm-1190/ ) & PCP Pod Intake Kit ( https://www.powercellperformance.com...dventure-1190/ ).

Here are some photo’s:

I don't even have a GT yet. And I don't know what this does. And I don't know what it cost. But I want it nonetheless!

I do like the ceramic coating of the headers/down pipes, but its rare to see it on a bike.

So what do you think the greatest improvement is, Sound, Looks or Performance

Fun is riding your bike to its limit

Rottweiler GT Exhaust Conversion

Oh, sorry. I have been posting on this for a while. Hope you have some time to read what I have been through??

This all started for me when I picked up my 2017 KTM SDGT in Nov of 2017. The KTM Dealer turns out had little experience with this particular KTM. They recommended & removed the SAS/ Filter System & change the Air system to PCP ( https://www.powercellperformance.com...dventure-1190/ ). From the time I got the bike it never performed like the 2016 KTM SDGT I test drove. The KTM SDGT below 4K rpm’s would start Chug-Chugaing especially in hair pin turns and when you accelerated the throttle would really surge. I was having to glide through the twisty’s?? At 5K miles disillusioned & tired of the misinformation from my KTM Dealer I called KTM USA. Between Rottweiler & KTM USA I found out what was going on with the bike ( http://www.ktmsmt.com/viewtopic.php?...lit=sas#p68178 ). If you remove the SAS system on a KTM SDGT you have to De-Cat the bike. Once you de-cat a new ECU map is often required. There are allegedly no maps that can be loaded on the KTM SDGT? Akrapovic Map: KTM SDR- YES/ KTM SDGT- NO. That lead me to the O2 dongles & PCV. With each modification Rottweiler recommend the bike performed better. I noticed some issues with bike at low temp’s & high altitudes (>4.5K). Rottweilers recommendation: (1) Austin Racing Exhuast Headers (>$2K with ceramic coating; http://www.austinracing.com/2013-201...-tip_colour-no ) (2) Put on the 18mm O2 bungs on the OEM exhuast headers for the Dynojet Dual Tune& ceramically coat the exhaust entire exhaust system to reduce heat ($400).

The guys at Rottweiler have been a real blessing. Especially the owner Gary. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. They set up the KTM that Chris Fillmore utilized to win the Race & set a new course record to the “Race to the Clouds” at the Pikes Peak Challenge (Founded in 1916; about 12 miles with 156 turns; you end up 14K above sea level??) ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=x28XRp6ToLo )


Now at 10K miles my KTM SDGT performs like riding a “Bat Out of Hell.” My KTM Dealer cannot believe the difference. It leaves their 2016 KTM SDGT demo in the dust.

Greatest Improvement: PERFORMANCE!!!

Doc

Ha, so with all these mods, have you done or thought about doing a dyno run?
I can see you have spent a lot of time and money on your baby, but as i say what is life but to have fun

Is this the last of your tuning?

Oh, the KTM SDGT is not my Baby. My "Baby" is my 2016 BMW K1600 GTLE. My 2017 KTM SDGT is the "Other Woman."

Nope, No Dyno. Would have to defer to professionals at Rottweiler for that data ( http://www.rottweilerperformance.com ).

Tuning?? With the PCV you can easly change your base map ( http://www.powercommander.com/powerc...mdlyrid=18-018 ). Then, the Dual Tune fine tunes the bike every time you ride.

Best,

Doc

Best,

well other women often pay more attention than wives and do not like to be ignored
I hope you keep them apart
generally these days I no longer go touring it's day trips and ride outs preferable with a small group.
depending upon the riding group dictates my baby of choice.

Fun is riding your bike to its limit

Ha!

Hey, where did you get the top case mount and hardware? Custom? Or available somewhere?

Tks ...

Top Case & carrier are KTM products ( https://www.ktm-parts.com/61412927033.html , https://www.ktm-parts.com/62012927000EB.html ). Did put some aluminum spacers in for a tighter fit of the carrier plate(
). The KTM emblems on the top case can be found here; #33- https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/oem-schematic/4 . There are the same ones that are on your side spoilers.

Best,

Doc
