Question Update

I took her to the shop on a trailer this morning. mechanic is nice and understanding. he's had her hooked up to the diagnostic tool and it read:
every single sensor gave an error reading. he's got no idea so far and I can't blame him, he sure's done his best. there's no KTM mechanic manual after 2008 models in the country and no online access to a 2010 one neither. there's no technical advisor in NZ for KTM for the mechanic and the only one in australia does not reply, neither via email nor via fax. it looks to me like the ECU is faulty but could be anything. so far I've wasted 5 days to try to get her fixed and transport her back to the shop and tomorrow I will need all day to return the trailer. I'm very frustrated after spending so much money on a new bike. she's a good bike when she goes but reliability is not her strength so far and service here in NZ is good on a mechanic/customer level but shocking on Factory/shop level. am also waiting on a new swing arm under warranty, old one got carved through by plastic mudguard.
Good to be out there riding.
