I agree, the computer calculates the l/100km quite accurately

Some treatment against heat.

On one hand, exhaust wraps









On the other hand, KTM dealers are installing a heat shield under the front seat.



Well, you still feel the heat, but believe me, the combination of both solutions make a HUGE improvement.

Tested in a really hot day . . .





Regards.

I have both of them, but not much improvement; so today I have decided to try an old version way to avoid heat. :-))))) very ugly, looks like medieval, but I will give it a chance tomoroow morning.

I have read in the past a story about Ferrari paying the customer and getting back the car, because the owner has installed an LPG system on the vehicle. :-)))) Maybe KTM does the same to me. :-)))))

The problem I'm having with the new 1190 is vibration through the bars; particularly the throttle grip, enough to make it very uncomfortable on a trip of 60-70 miles.
I mentioned this at the service, the mechanic rode the bike and reconed it felt same as all the other 1190's he had ridden. Fair enough I thought it was just me and bought an expensive set of handelbar damping system clamps, they help but it's not the answer. The checked and tightened all the engine mounts... any thoughts, anyone had similar?
I have read the Vibrations post prior, it's a new bike should not need same.
Any thoughts appreciated.
Thanks.
No problems here either, I would suggest taking it to a decent tyre shop and getting them to rebalance the wheel. Theres a few people who have had the same issue because of the balancing that comes from the factory.. or maybe the dealer does the balancing but didnt?

anyway balance it n try again.. I was suprised at how smooth the whole bike felt for a twin. better than my old BMW

They also mentioned the price (not sure if the retail price or shipping) will reduce if I order 3 or more...
Anyone in OZ interested on this ones?
Let me know. I'm planning to order one soon...
I would but not for $930.. Thats a def rip.. Give it 6 to 12 months and touratech will have a set, Not even touratech would be that much.. Look at the f800gs stuff for eg..

For 25 years I have always wore black or at least dark motorcycle clothing, and I have always suffered in the mid summer sun, and during the last 5 years I had an R1 that really did give off heat under the right leg. So last year as part of taking a ride across Peru and specifically down the Ica dessert I decided to buy some light coloured adventure riding gear. It is brilliant, it reflexs heat instead of absorbing it, so it doesn't matter if the heat is comming from the mid day sun, or from the bike when sitting in city trafiic, you dont feel the heat. I now have the 1190, and just did a trip from Germany to the Orkneys during the few days it got to 40'C, and I didn't experence any issues with heat from the bike


Yes, there is the sheer embassment of wearing pale colours, and I have heard all the jokes, "Elvis has left the biulding", but for summer riding, I can reccomend it,

Once I work out how to add a photo, I will

I just picked up my bike which is the 2nd new batch from KTM. and I'm wondering if they sorted it as it looks like it has a gold coloured coating over the header pipes (could be ceramic? ) I havent experienced any of the heating issues anyone has talked about..

Meaning the consumption was shown correct, but fuel range was wrong. I had more then 3.5 liters (real reserve) still in the tank. Maybe the computer is showing fuel range till the reserve?

I just can't understand how you can put 21lt into a 23lt tank that still had 3.5lt in it....

Hi all

Bad news from me !:(

Yesterday I parked in Mayfair/London as usual and come back afternoon to get on my bike to go home. But it was stolen. While I was calling my wife and trying to walk to train I saw my bike in a very quite street all hidden in a corner . I run near it no scratches ,no damage on the body however they cut some cables and put a screw to my ignition to break my steering lock.
I recovered by ktm recovery which cost me 190! Yes ktm recovery only covers if you got a puncher or side road fix they don't recover your bike be aware!
This morning I am going to recover it again which is private recovery 45 ! I said great Ktm fucks me over from recovery as well!

I am not going to report to my insurance fuck them , they are legal gangsters anyway ,they pay your claim today next year they put your premium up so much that you wish you paid it your self !


So what do you guys thing I am looking for paying for ignition?
500? 600? 1000

Well shit happens at least I got the bike .

Then for the last 3 days onf the trip the engine would only run on tick over for about 20-30 second, before shutting down, when on the open road it was OK, just tickover. The fault was intermittent, and some times it would work for OK for a few hours, i took it to the KTM dealer in Scotland, but by then it was running fine. we tried a few things, but could not get it to repeat the defect.

and finally, yesterday pull I pulled into the petrol station and openned the filler cap, fuel sprayed everywhere, they was only about 2 bars left when i pulled in, and at least a liter was sprayed out, it was a hot day (about 38'c), but I have never seen this happen before

The bike is now back at the dealers to find out what the problem

Cheers
Milli

I got the bike back yesterday, under warrenty they have replaced the fuel pump and the ECU to holefully solve the tickover problem, and replaced the side side spring, but no mention of the tank pressurisation.

I rompe..in your second pic I'm seeing a chain cleaner system. How do you installed it? I have an scottoiler system (not electronic version ) but I dont know how to connect with the bike's system.

Thanks
