As awesome as the new KTM 1190 Adventure R is, one area where it needs a little fine-tuning is in the air filtration department, as the stock paper filter element and air box have been shown to have trouble coping with Australia's outback dust conditions.
So Aussie brand UniFilter has leapt to the fore and created a very serious fix for the 1190's air box, which is now available from UniFilter dealers everywhere - check it out:
UniFilter, through Ficeda Accessories, is pleased to release its latest air filtering solution to the Australian market. Unifilter Australia has combined its 37 years of air filter design and manufacturing expertise as well as its new state of the art CNC manufacturing processes to develop the ultimate air filter for the KTM 1190 Adventure/R.
The kit includes everything you could hope for to provide the
best protection when exploring everywhere Australia and the world has to offer!
The kit includes: replacement two-stage panel filter, 2 x intake snorkel pre-cleaners and 1 x soft foam air box seal.
RRP is $69.95 and the part # AU1429KIT
It's available from all good motorcycle stores right now!
I just emailed my dealer about the recall on the air filter and they said no worries, they will send one out to me. So may not be that bad after all ;)

I wonder if I can upgrade minus the cost of the DNA filter to the unifilter one? hehe

I have been busy adding my signature to a fantastic bike to make it even more fantastic!


This Remus pipe was previously fitted to a GTR1400 since sold so I laser cut a bracket to mount it and welded the retaining spring tabs to the KTM outlet. The GTR pipe slipped on so perfectly, it looks like a factory job!


The Australian made B&B bash plate is made from 5mm alloy and very well designed, robust and IMO, looks better than either the KTM, Tourtech or SW-Motech items. It was not light at 4kg but I saved the same weight by fitting the Remus pipe so we're back to square one re weight.


You are looking at the biggest improvement to long distance ride comfort right here. The MRA X-creen can be adjusted for angle and my 5'10" (177cm) frame hides behind this set up even with the KTM windscreen in it's lowest position. This set up effectively sends the turbulence over the top and past my shoulders and I suspect a passenger would further benefit if the main screen was lifted. The MRA X-creen also comes with 6cm long adjustment arms to give even more height but I chose to fit the X-creen directly to it's mounting base for a tidier look.


The Ergo seat is not cheap and to be honest, I was full of regrets about buying it as I dismantled what seemed like the entire bike (remove all panels, tank headlight etc) just to fit the heated seat control switch. HOWEVER, now that I have used the seat on an all day ride I have to say it's one of the very best seats I've ever sat on. If you live in a hot climate and you dont need the heating function, just coil the wires up under the seat and use it just for its day long comfort then you'll save yourself the agro of fitting the switch!


This SW-Motech item is well finished and an absolutely essential item because of the poor KTM side stand design. I heard some forum chatter about a recall on side stands???


There has been much discussion re heat off the rear cylinder head and rear header pipe so I had the rear header pipe ceramic coated to reduce the heat signature back to the rear shock.


I suspect that the hot seat issue is not as pronounced with the thicker Ergo seat fitted however I fashioned up a heat shield from a bit of plastic I found in the KTM satchel when I bought the bike. Looking at the pre-drilled holes I think this was intended to fit behind the numberplate to comply with Australian Design Rules pertaining to length of mudguard.


Another pic of the shield "clipped" into the seat. As far as I can tell it works well with no hot seat yet detected despite a full day riding in 30 degrees last weekend.

Although the Touratech risers are not visible, the SW-Motech GPS mount can be seen. The only drawback is that it makes it awkward to get to the key with gloved hands.


This shows how I modified my old KTM 950 tank bag by cutting a hole to access the fuel filler. Works perfectly. Touratech handlebar risers are visible here along with the Zumo mounted in its dock.

So it turns out that the DNA filter is actually just the pre filter's.. so you still need to open up the box and seal up the outer box and paper filter.

That, my friend, is a work of bloody genius!

Unless you get it patented before the Austrians get the bike on this side of the pond that idea is well and truly stolen!

Issue is: dust (which is areal problem in South Africa and Australia) can get past (on some bikes) the stock airfilter.

This air filter changes were an initiative by a South African KTM dealer (Raceworx) and not a KTM recall - Another South African KTM Dealer RAD also on its own initiative recalled all its 1190'and inspected the air boxes and where required seemingly put some grease lining in to stop the buy pass of the air filter .

I am very happy to see the Uni Air filter and will install as soon as I can get my hands on ones - One up to UNi filter to look at the problem and fix.

Seriously, 1190 motor is a new motor with all the new tecnology and the oil we used have make lot of progres from 70's.
Ok, if i only ride with my bike like an enduro, on "race mode", it will be interesting to change oil more regulary.
But for a normal use road, i don't think so...but it's just my opinion, everyone done what he wants

Do VRA screens actually sell it for 1190 adventure? Or you just bought one and fit it ? The whole bike looks good man.

I told by the service manager that KTM would be providing a fix for the dust issue. I will ask him next week when i back up home.

But then again, I have been told many things by this crowd and take what they say with a grain of salt!!

The MRA screen is pretty much universal. I have one that I have used on three different windshields and it has vastly improved all of them

I ordered the Uni Filter yesterday.

They checked my VIN for any updates/recalls.

Nothing yet, so maybe KTM is just hoping we all pay for the fix ourselves.

Mine at 4600km lost around 700cc...even with warnings in the display.

The dealer refilled and now.... at 7000km... is in a normal level.

The official dealer here says that the second service is done on 7.500km for oil change.

What do you think ?
Asked my dealer to perform the 15000 service at 10000 already as I am leaving for a three week trip and did not want to search a dealer on the trip. So we decided to change Oil, Oilfilter and Brakefluid to be on the safe side. Dealer recommend not to change airfilter due to my primary use on alpine mountain roads. Plan to change Oil again at 20000 upon return from my trip

The October issue of Motorcyclist magazine has a full page ad for the 1190 Adventure - won't be long now.

It says the 'standard' version will have the EDS.
