New Motorcyclist and 390 Duke Owner

Hey Yall, I passed my MSF about a month ago and bought my 2018 390 Duke new about 3 weeks ago. Since then I have put 134 miles on her, most of which were windy country backgrounds! I am generally pleased with the bike given how much I paid $4295! I fully understand beforehand being built In India what I might expect, despite being “feature rich” standard abs, tft screen, 17in wheels. The compromise is quality sort of like a land rover, tons of features beautiful design but poor dependability.

Yesterday at 136 miles I replaced the fan to the SPAL fan due to fan failure at around 80 miles I want to say just only realized it was not kicking on 3 days ago. I was worried there was a short or electrical problem somewhere because the fuse connectors for the fan were black but the ribbon was intact-not sure why. I tested out the relay and fan connector and they checked out ok. I was able to follow the wiring diagram for the 390 duke repair manual and identify the terminal to test for both the relay and plug. GREAT RESOURCE, thank you to however posted that pdf.

Anyways, here I am finally joined the forum after browsing for the past month or so.

Cheers mate!

im bought my first bike - 2018 390 Duke about 2 months ago. I have my MSF course set for next month. I have about 1300 miles on her already and love it. She will break in over time. you'll see.

I had my RAD fan stop working too. It ended up just being a blown fuse.

No. None - I chalked it up as cheaper Chinese/Indian fuse. put a decent fuse in to replace it and no issue since

You bought yours from solid-ktm right? I bought mine there too. My fuse too was suspect, the connectors were black but the ribbon intact

You were either the older guy picking up or the chick that got the lowered white duke.
