I'm no good at pictures, but this is similar to what I used. These used to be common in factory tool kits. I used the one from my Ural tool kit.

Ahh...I tried a ring spanner, but had a hard time getting it to fit correctly, and was worried it would gouge the soft alu ring nut! thanks for that!

I cranked it down tight! Better would have been to take it apart and put some loctite in there. That will be next time if it comes loose again.

There are plenty of posts on this.

Dealers are thread locking the nut and it works....shyte KTM should share this information globally.....then more than HALF the crap they having can be sorted quick and we can enjoy the bikes not spend sooo much time at their workshops.

Actually I heard BMW has this problem all sorted out, you may want to sell the 1190 and consider buying one.

Probs?

Have a MY14 so far with 5000+ km; ambient air sensor failure,(snapped 'cause of the tie wrap was too tight holding it at the ABS sensor & brake hose junction below cowl @ horn under plate support) triple 3 clamp bearing loosening (fixed with higer torque being applied twice), spark plug gasket o ring head gasket sprayin' oil through the weep hole below the SAS plate of the rear cylinder (pending fixin')...Minor to the Whoot factor it provides...

Pissed 4000 miles and it has all gone to hell!!!

My High beam switch will not stay on! I changed the DRL position to on and was sitting in front of a window and tried the Switch and if push it forward it goes back to low and same if I pull it in. This and the Speedometer being off by 8 mph is enough for me to get online and whine!

During highway 4 hours riding under heavy rain, both winkers stopped working
And the message showed up "General Failure"
I did nothing for 1 week and brought it to my dealer for fixing, and on the way to there
It suddenly came back.

My dealers computer did not find any error log and no cause for this error found.
I will keep riding until second same problem happen.

When tightening the loosening steering head nut, is there a specific torque you are trying to achieve? The best I could find in the manual was 8.4 Ft lbs, not sure if I'm looking at the correct thing or not. I tightened mine the other day but don't think I got it tight enough, so I wanted to recheck it and put some thread locker on.

High beam switch is a common problem.
Dealer needs to replace the switch.
I just don't drive at night.

I can understand why the dealer told you no problems... The symptoms you describe above have absolutely nothing to do with either one of those systems.

Good one.

Get my first chance to ride the 1190 after it was in for warranty claims yet again 4wks ago, today put the new battery ktm fitted on charge as the bike turns so slow still and I noticed, both my seat tabs that hook into the tank are torn almost broken off....looking at it I see why, yet another crap design.

Seems that the seat 'floats' on these tabs and when you sit it spreads our the seat thus pulling on the tabs...I'm only 92kg so wtf...

Put in a claim with KTM so we will see.

(Update - KTM will replace the seat even thou it's out of the 6month warranty period for "PowerParts"...yet I've done around 3000km on that seat so....it's being replaced this week.)

Tossed the KTMS keys and back to work I go again, bike can stand a few more weeks till KTM fix their shyte.....yet again.
