I don't claim to know. If I had an 1190, I would be fired up too. But, seems to me that I would really want to know if there is any part of the "problem" which might (?) be related to the way the filter and or the airbox cover is installed. I don't mean to suggest that I know what the problem is. KTM knows a thing or 2 about dirt bikes.

Anyway, hoping that there is no engine damage here and that you guys enjoy the 1190's.
The deafening silence from KTM on the problems hasnt helped.
