If you are not hooked up to the KTM diagnostic tool thats the way I read it as well. Turning the key off as stated is maybe a saftey precautuion when you are hooking and unhooking the diagnostic tool????
Could this 15 minute idle thing be Orange Crush folk lore? God forbid us inmates would be lored in by an internet rumor. We are way to smart for that. LOL! Some of the stuff wriiten above seems like BS to me. Like making certain the bike is on the centerstand. What possible diffrence would that make with an EFI motor. I do agree with letting the motor warm to 3 bars though. That makes sense so I do it. (Is that even stated in the owners manual?)
I admit that the few times I have performed the 15 min idle it "seemed" smoother off idle, but then again depending on conditions the off idle abruptness seems to creep back in. I will say that with the mods listed in my sig I have basically eliminated that gremlin though.
