I will not stop until I feel satisfied in my bitching. It's been less than a month and maybe 4-5 posts. By your agitation, I guess the truth hurts. Maybe if more KTM990 owners raised a stink 5-7 years ago and not chalked off poor design and materials to "charactor" we would not be having this conversation. It will be interesting to watch how KTM addresses 1190 teething issues in 2014 and beyond.

Sigh, sorry. I have only ridden with two 990's and both had weird idiopathic idle and stalling issues. One of them swore by a ECU reset ritual well-documented on a thread somewhere here in the KTM chatter. Great bike when they are sorted out though I always cringed when one of them used to bring it to my garage to work on, sheesh.

Good luck.

Very helpful, thank you.
