Hey, The Savage Rabbit,
I will add that buying the 950 was a good move, you did right, as the 950 is proven to be one of the best. The troubles you are having is not good, but it happens. I have also suffered from the KTM Corp. indifference. Still I have had 5 KTM's and 3 in the garage now. KTM's are the real deal, dependable, functional, great power when you need it, like no other bike. Need of TLC? OK sometimes.
Anyway hang in there and work on getting your bike running well and you will enjoy many years of bliss.
