Stupid design means I Can't check radiator level without removing the fuel tank.

Not very happy. Bike is back yo dealer on Tuesday.
Ok so it turns out the leak and the empty overflow bottle were unrelated.

The leak from the blocked off hose was actually excess air filter oil that seeped out my DNA air filter. When the motor gets hot the oil becomes more viscous and flows down the hose. No major issue there..

As for the empty overflow bottle. KTM have issued an tech update to replace certain radiator hoses.
There are also tech updates for the centre stand bolt, a computer reflash, and sidestand spring

I would suggest you all talk to to your dealer as KTM won't contact you.
