They sure are awesome looking bikes. This is the kind of thing that would keep me from trading in my S10 in on one though. Way too many teething issues.
If they could get the reliability down I'd get one in a heartbeat.
Maybe in a year or two....
Hope you get it fixed soon and have better luck with yours.

Warrant in Bousval
when I bought my first (owned 3) 950 back in 2004 KTM belgium sent me to him and asked me to keep going there because I kinda ask a lot from the bike and he's a real good mechanic
raced african Dakars on KTM's and came in top 20 being a private rider

gotta say he always kept my 950 in good nick despite the abuse
we used them for fast assistance in 4x4 trophy's through europe
so knobbly tires and trashing it through the romanian forest to keep the cars moving

My EXC-F was always a bitch to start until I finally removed all the anti-smog crap. Now you just point at the magic button and it roars to life. I wonder if it will be the same for the 1190?

Is that a dealer only kind of reset or something we can do on the side of the road?
