@Filterman - Your product seems to be the ultimate solution to the filtering issues - why don't you sell it in the united states? Better yet, why not call KTM HQ directly and offer them your filter as an OEM solution? It requires some Hutzpah, but many times that's how success stories start.
Hi Bigman, Thanks for your good words. KTM HQ have samples for testing. So far I have not been able to obtain any feedback from them. They do sell our filter for the 690 as a genuine part so hopefully they might take this one too. As for the USA. We are separate from UNI USA so we don't sell into the States and they don't sell into Australia. Touratech Dealers will have them available as they go through head office in Germany then out to there dealers. alternatively you can buy direct from us and we can ship to the USA.
Cheers

Let's say in comparison to the 990 Adv.

I'm talking about the approach and concept in itself and not about the implementation issues described in your posts, which let's hope are solved for 2014.
Hi Dragos, Thanks for your good words. fundamentally the air box concept is good on the 1190. The issue is the sealing point between the top and bottom halves of the box needs to have a larger rubber sealing point. Also the mechanism that holds the filter needs to put pressure on the filter the whole way round not just the top. If I was designing the box I would also try to take the air from behind the riders leg like KTM do on there dirt bike range. This setup works well. KTM dirt bike filters stay the cleanest of any dirt bike on the market.
The 990 air box had its issues but was pretty good overall. The intake was higher and out of the direct flow of dust.
Like all adventure bikes. You take what is really a road bike and build it to go off road. You will always strike problems when its designed to do two jobs. Most are pretty good things.

This excellent bike concept will no doubt get its aftermarket solutions popping up

Filterman's thinking is pointing in the right direction. This bike also needs a creative and more air-filter-access friendly tank solution.

Creative aftermarket solutions should pop up around this problem area in a relatively short timespan

Thanks Bigman I just tell it like it is and I find that a video is often clear with less chance of ambiguity.... and its fun.

Despite the few small issues with my bike, I wouldnt change it for anything.... yet

Radguard for 1190 Adventure

I have just recieved my first accesory for the 2014 Adventure, even though I dont have the bike.
Any Aussie guys have this on their bikes...

This Radguard is a very solid product and will give the exposed radiator protection from the usual road / bush debris, sticks stones etc..

I choose the black colour $156 AUD + delivery

170 mph trail bike, anyone?
I dunno where you got that idea but watch this..

273 looks a little higher than 240 ;)

Good to see they have came down in price.. I thought $195 was way too expensive for about $20 of security wire ;)

Wowwww :-))))
I wonder, you had low pressure on the front tire before the ride, or the TPMS is not working well?

Side stand spring recall too requires a recall!!!

My 1190R's side stand spring was changed due to ktm's recall, on the distributor's headquarters, the way as ktm instructed to mount, a month ago.
But now the NEW spring is broken!!! and I had to replace it with the old one that I was keeping as an emergency spare...

So: do NOT assume that you are safe because you changed the recalled side stand spring...

C'mon ktm, with the 1190; you finally overcame the oceans of snatcy throttle, bad rc8 engine, horrible seat etc but now you make us all drown in a lousy "spring"???

Or do we have a sidestand "total recall" awaiting???

Btw: Another 1190R in my neighborhood had it's mid stand broken and changed from warranty...

Really started to wonder who's producing the 1190's "stands", Zappa's "Flakes"???

See this airbox conversion - apparently it works well:

http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/inde...opic=131440.40

The other thing that has been bugging me is the air intakes. I have seen some air filter damage. At risk of having to replace the intake tubes, I made a "test" mod.

Removing all the plastics to get here is a bit of a mission, but I was most of the way there fitting the GPS, so I just continued into the maze....

I basically just blocked off the intakes in the front where the perforated cover that is visible from outside slides in.



Then drilled two holes in the area covered by the tank.





Once assembled, none of the holes are visible, and nicely covered behind the plastics and tank where direct water cannot get to it.





Will need to find some water crossings to test. Not simple in the FS at present....

The expedition continues....

Answering my own question:
Yes there is a side stand recall for 2013 1190's!!!
Ktm says after many complaints of replaced side stand springs,
they are going to change the side stand itself and provide a new side stand for all 2013 1190s, covered by warranty...
2014s will come with a new sidestand...
