It is a new 2014 , It does show the actual values. I would just like to set the default value to whatever I like, without having the low pressure alarm the whole time. The standard pressures are fine for tarmac but lower pressures work a lot better on gravel and sand.

There is no choice to change the "alarm" values...the only choce is to switch between bar and psi.

Thats what I thought, So this will give you a low pressure alarm all through Africa,
well done KTM....


Or just remove the TPMS ,,,, PMS etc etc ,decide on the required pressure and ride the bike.

I agree it seems like a bit of an oversight, but come on, how many software Programers are adventure riders. Don't whine about it, turn in a suggestion and maybe they will add this to the next software release, along with cruise control.

These are cheap things to fix, with minimal cost to owners to retrofit. I'd gladly pay an hour of shop time for a reflag with these features.

There is one problem with your statement Todd -

KTM boasts that all of their employees - especially their designers and engineers - are riders. There should be no problem like this. Or, the offset valve holes in the rims making using a tube in an emergency nearly impossible.

Report on the Gobi H&B pannier mounts:

My SO is 5' 2" and cannot get on and off with the panniers mounted. Hell, I barely can, and no way can you swing your leg over, must punch through or across the seat. I do like them mounted like that tho, can't even tell they are back there while riding.

So, I am going to lower the exhaust 4" at the rear, and lower the pannier mounts. No small job, I need to go get some more argon before I can start.

First, consider more foreplay to help you both get off.

As for getting on, try stepping on the left foot peg, then swinging your leg over. Have the SO get on that way first, then slide back onto the Pillion seat, then you get on. Think of mounting a horse, (not during foreplay).

I certainly appreciate the heads up. I've been considering the H&B mount with the Xplorer cases. I was more worried about my SO not having any space with the bags mounted so high. Does your SO have any issues with the panniers getting in the way of her knees or causing a cramped space?

There is plenty of room once we are up, just very hard to get on and off. I didn't want to risk breaking the sidestand mount (mounted on case) by climbing up on the rider peg, but may try that.

Also, we didn't try, me scooting forward to the tank and her using my peg to get up or down on.

LOL, yep that would help.

We are going to get fully geared up and try again, but if it is a major, can't imagine the scenes we will cause at every gas stop.

I could always ask a nearby stranger to take the pannier off so she could dismount. LOL

My daughter is 4'8" short.

She get's on the bike first whether it's loaded or not.

Roadtest

My march ''Cycle World '' arrived today and for those who haven't seen it there is test on the 1190, good reading for those with a 1190 and for those with funds to buy, as after reading the test they will feel its money well spent . quote ''Is KTM's 1190 the best all-round bike in the world. ? ''
On a horse of another colour my bike came up with the '' danger service warning '' nuisance at 10k, and following the double press both buttons etc I reset to wanting it to warn me at another 20k Km [ I don't intend to dealer service I can just imagine an apprentice fiddling with that ''needs to be right'' air filter ]......but my bike would not cancel until I set to a lesser Km [10k I used ]...guess there is a software ''block '' as service intervals are supposed to be 15k Km max.
