Had the same exact issue within the first hundred miles. Torqued the steering head bearing and it's been good since. Added a little blue thread locker also. Noticed most under braking but could also do it sitting still like you described.

Went to the dealer. You were correct. It was the bearing.

Same experience here - took the bike in for its first service, they re-torqued the head bearing (and told me that the bearing race was actually not completely in all the way ever so slightly), a tiny bit of blue fairy blood and zero issues since despite many glorious and adventeurous KMs ridden since. Job done...

Where can I go to hear gossip relating to updates for the 2015 model.

How about a 30litre tank, suspension lift (maybe between 265 and 300mm would be cool), and faring which actually reduces buffeting rather than increasing it?

For all you KTM windscreen haters (just kidding: for those of you, like me who could never find the right position for the windscreen and have tried other screens and tried to convince yourself that they work...), try removing your mirrors and go for a ride. I installed my CPR Rottweiler CRG Arrow mirrors yesterday and removed the stock mirrors and wow - proving again that KTM cannot manage to make aerodynamic mirrors that don't create buffeting. I'm not just talking about dirty air hitting your shoulders, this totally cleaned up the air on the sides of my helmet and the air is sooooooooooooo smooth now - zero buffeting :)

As long as you're taking stuff off, don't forget the hand guards. WRT wind noise/buffeting, my HDB setup is quite different than OEM. Body size, and helmet brand/type also make a huge difference. Forget I said this as it sounds like yet another wind screen thread.

Thanks a lot for the "heads up". It was the same on my 2014 - checked at 3,500 km. There was play in the head bearings causing a clunk when braking and sometimes when cornering. The nut needed tightening and thread locking. The nut coming loose is a safety concern.

Good point - I've always believed that ktm handguards are aerodynamically flawed. Personally, I don't like handguards with metal reinforcement on a bike this heavy so if I did change mine out, I'd probably consider the touratech plastic guards as they're quite good (and I generally don't love touratech).

The HDB sure are nice when the bike goes down, saving the levers, bar, etc.

Adding that much to the height of it would mean you would have to be 8 foot tall to sit in it!!
