I'm not sure why you'd need a support van to carry a sum of spare parts (consumables at that) smaller than a can of beer or a spare tube. You DO carry a spare set of tubes don't you, or did you just figure you wouldn't get flats because your tubes were new?
Hopefully your KTM will wind up with someone who appreciates it more, once they take care of these teething issues it will be a great machine for them.
I skimmed your RR but if this isn't considered a blown vacation I'd hate to be within earshot of you when you have a real problem.
Don't skim my ride report, read it, it will teach you a lot.
A mousetrap is a lot more reliable than this KTM our we couldn't see the ass you just made of yourself. It would be covered in mice. You have time for potshots at a guy whose ride report you skimmed. Give me a break.
