CDN Duke's build thread

Purchased from Wheelsport in Orleans, Ontario, Canada, a suburb of Ottawa, the nation's capital.

Enquired about a new RC390 they had advertised at C$4999 on September 2nd and rolled out of the dealership September 17th on a white 2016 Duke 390 that they brought in on a dealer trade for me.

Cost out the door was C$6047 including tire tax and HST, or approximately US$4650 based on exchange rate then (~1.30).

Pics provided from the dealer before I took delivery:

De-stickered the tank and added Renthal 32mm Kevlar grips. We run Oury grips on all our MTBs and have run them on the last couple motorcycles but wanted to try out the Renthals to see what all the hype is about. They're good but I think I will probably go back to Oury's, the only issue is they don't come open ended.

Ordered some Auxbeam F-16 H4 LED bulbs but while waiting for them to arrive, installed an H4 'Ion' all weather bulb plus LED for park light. Before and after pics.

MNNTHBX airbox lid and the taller DNA Racing filter R-KT1SM11-0R version, specially designed for the RC390 CUP Edition.

The MNNTHBX lid needs weatherstripping or similar applied to underside when fitted on top of DNA filters as it won't seal properly otherwise. The filter gasket isn't as tall as the OE so it flops around under the lid unless built up with foam or similar.

Ordered a PCV from Chad (cjwells) at Commonwealth aka KTMPerformance.com.

Had it shipped with tune based on Akra base map (flashed at dealer on delivery) for stock exhaust, open lid airbox and high flow filter.

Neglected to zip tie the O2 optimizer control box out of the way so it started melting on the header. Caught it just in time before the innards got melted :-O

Taped it back up tightly with electrical tape, now zip tied to bike.

Bike runs awesome with the new PCV. Night and day difference without a doubt. Runs much stronger through mid-range. Keep in mind I was still in break in period and keeping bike below 8k rpms. The 'lean surge' hesitation at part throttle was completely eliminated.

With the PCV, I felt comfortable installing a pipe. I purchased a used GPR Ghost exhaust off chrisdigital21 on the RC390 forum. It comes with two db killers, didn't sound great with both installed and I preferred the tone with the bottom vs just the top, so have left it that way. It's a straight through design, all stainless construction. No catalytic.

The elbow normally present on the bottom db killer was cutoff by chrisdigital21 to improve flow. I was concerned that the exhaust was dumping out too close to rear tire vs having it directed away and out with the elbox. I've been advised it's really nothing to be worried about. The pipe is designed such that it can be run without the bottom db killer at all.

Pics of the pipe, the db killers (before and after = sooted), and the view of how it sits fore of the tire.

I took the bike in for the initial valve adjustment this week. Dropped it at Woody's Cycles in Perth, about an hour away, as his labor rate is C$69/hr vs C$110/hr at Wheelsport. Bike was ready next day and cost is C$194.92. I will be doing the oil change myself after riding it home tomorrow.

I've also got some new bits to put on :-)

T-Rex Racing 45mm lowering link and kickstand.

Auxbeam F-16 LED bulbs arrived yesterday.

'KTM' lever guards which just arrived today.

The latter two were ordered off aliexpress.

You have been busy !

Is the exhaust you've fitted from an RC 390 ?

GPR Ghost exhausts i've seen fitted to the Duke looked like this:

The GPR Ghost is same for RC390 and Duke 390.

GPR make quite a few different models for the KTM 390s, some that are RC390 only.

This UK dealer is good to deal with and here's their Duke specific listing:
