You can't duct tape the seal between the front (dirty) and rear (clean) halves of the air box, only the perimeter. A good chunk of the issues shown have been air going over the top of the filter...

Unless there is some way to perfectly seal off the cat on both sides against media blasting I doubt the inside was coated much after the ends. You can't get media or powder in the cat at all.

I think you have not ridden a triple before? The triple is so smooth the KTM feels like a bull in comparison.

No reputable place will do the inside of a pipe with a cat. It's impossible to prep or coat properly without damaging/clogging the cat. I'm having mine done inside and out since there is no cat.

Thats funny because almost every case of this is not the filter, it's the airbox seal above the filter between the case halves... Consider yourself lucky but you are not the norm.

Mine left the cross tube disconnected too! Made sure the mechanic knew it happened. I caught it in less than 20 miles though as I went over the bike once it got home.

I would think a pinched wire or a bad connection before thinking the ECU fried, especially since the battery was out. It's time to check your entire harness around the areas you worked.

You are possibly lugging the engine. Downshift! Rain mode helps this feeling in the lower RPM because it pulls timing. The timing advance in Sport/Street gives a bit of this feeling. It's expected.

The small volume most 1190 farkles are created at lose volume pricing. Combine this with the thick aluminum plate it's made out of and it's actually fairly reasonable for how well the design is.
