The female spade connectors that I used is 10amps and hot, the other set is switched not sure of the amps. In that picture you can see the hole below the cigarette plug, try and fish out the wires there. The 10amp hot is ziptied to the cigarette plug, the other one is loose in there.

The connectors in the foreground are the switched pair, the other pair is behind the cigarette plugin. If you can not fish them out from the bottom, you have to take the tank and side panels off, plus the splash guard around the forks, PITA.

Has anyone figured how to put the clock in 12 hour mode instead of 24 hour?

I was reading the manual last night. I think if you go into settings, where you set the time there might be an option to choose 12 or 24hr.

I have changed the time twice, but can't find the 12-24 mode, gotta be there.

I just took another look at the manual. It doesn't mention anything about clock modes.

Try switching between miles/km or changing the language. Possibly the clock is tied into one of those regional settings. Alternatively you could try cycling through the hours.

Hurry and figure this out. I'm supposed to pick mine up on Thurs or Fri. Something tells me I'll want to know this myself.

I don't think it is changeable. My past 2 KTM's weren't either. I kinda like it though.

Thanks for the feedback Llamapacker - I'll dig around as you suggest - sorry but I can't see the picture you are referring to?

Any 1190's delivered to California yet?

Been following this thread with great interest and finally made it to the last page! Those of us here on the left coast seem to still be waiting for our bikes...
Waiting very impatiently for my R to arrive, and I guess I'm going to have to wait till next year
Getting caught in this perfect storm of holidays/west coast/ late delivery blues shouldn't last too much longer...
I hate waiting...
Those here in the US- is the R model fit with a leading-axle fork, or is it in line with the fork? The R that I test rode in Fresno, in late October had an inline fork, and I really liked the handling (felt just the same on turn-in and holding a line as my '06 950 ADV S... And as nimble as my 990 SMT
Thanks,
Jim

Thanks for this answer and the others.
It seems that the insurance is really great!
Good news, I was afraid the insurance companies classify the KTM 1190 ADV as a sports bike due to its engine size and 150 BHP...

Continental TrailAttack 2 Motorcycle Tires Review

http://www.ridermagazine.com/gear/co...es-review.htm/


An interesting review of the Conti TA 2 tyre.
Good rubber for sure, they definitely stick

http://www.roadrunner.travel/2013/12...rail-attack-2/

Lucky Guy....

The tires offer easy turn-in and good grip, enough to lean until parts start to scrape

It has a leading-axle, I would guess about 14mm.

actually that is an oil filter and TWO oil filter SCREENS,,,,,, only an idiot would throw those {screens} away and buy new ones.

the ktm 690 motor has two different paper filters and two screens... about $10 USD for the 2 paper filter [aftermarket]

just shoot the screens with some brake clean or carb cleaner, and re-install.....whomever wrote that web page for a $80 filter kit was an Obama voter [ clueless ]

Fair enough. I was able to download the 2014 owners manual from the link on a previous posting here. As you mentioned, clean the screens and replace the fibre filter.

The manual does state to use reverse pliers to pull the fibre filter out. How easy is it to pull out the filter by hand?

Rick

Btw with the 1190s selling like hot cakes up here, good used 990/950s are queuing up as trade ins. I am starting to see a strong business case for keeping my GW and picking up a nice used 990. I want the KTM to ride off pavement and into high risk counties. Used seems a better choice then dumping a new $18k 1190 or finding it gone in South/Central America ;)

Decent mpg's would also be nice, I have read to expect anywhere from high 20's playing off road to low 40's with throttle restraint at speeds below 70. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I'm getting 45 mpg (UK) out of mine - that's 10 miles per litre or around 180 before refill warning comes on. I have the Std. 1190 and the seat is OK for distance, but you always have the option of comfort seats.
