ADV 1190: excessive heat from the left side of the frame under the seat rear cylinder

Hello.
I wanted to know how many of you have this problem on their 1190.
The heat is particularly noticeable when at low speeds in traffic or when stopped at traffic lights.
And it's even worse when the weather is warm (25 C, 77 F or more).
If any of you feel, leave a post in this tread. Thank you.

ehhehhehehhe, welcome to the club, I must have been the most crying rider about this, since the beginning. Summer arrived in Europe and more people face this problem. I tell you this is something which is impossible to avoid. It gets worse and worse everyday.
:-(((
You can read more on 1190 Adventure thread, it's written there many times.

I have wrapped all the exhaust; we have taken all the pipes out and done it using DEI copper wraps. Maybe a little bit positive effect I doubt. Anyway, I don't want to take it out, because if it comes out that it's working well and I decide to put it on later again, it's a long long job.
I have sticked a DEI heat shield, an aluminum hard foil inside sticky fibre, don't know what, it kept the heat on and the seat was like a pan as hot as able to cook eggs on. So I have removed it and sticked a sticky plastic aluminum looking soft material coated sheet from KTM; better than the former. I have tried to use the seat on the higher position, than I have noticed that the flame left the seat through the holes which left between the seat and the frame, so I have lowered the seat back and I feel better.

At the end of the day, our summer has just started, but the seat becomes too hot; an unidentified very heat air raises from the left side through the back of my leg. Once this happen, the seat never returns cooler that's what I know for sure. What I don't know, how KTM didn't want to lean on this problem so far. I listen to the same story from all of the people who has tested the bike. I am sure that they have already knew this in Tenerife and as far as I remember Visordown tester has mentioned this problem.

I love the bike, the ride, the feeling and everything, but I need to find a solution to this.

Man I love the bike too but I wish this would have been better. I have test ridden it 3 times before buying it. Did felt the problem because it was cold weather and I was riding it like mad. It still didn't put me off from the bike but I need a solution . Ktm did disappoint me though. Such a good bike , heat and side stand is sad really. Well also petrol spend.

How about trying an adjustable 12 V fan to direct the heat away from you? Add a switch to be turned on when needed (slow traffic or stopped):

when i got my 690 it ran pretty hot also, in part i think because it needs to be at a cetain temp to ensure the cat works. Anyway several things i did to lower temps which are probably applicable. KTM has a fan switch that was oem for hot climates that cuts in at a lower temperature. The coolant is probably a 50/50 mix by changing it to 60 distilled water to 40 coolant it achieves better cooling as water has better cooling properties. I ceramic coated the header pipe but wrapping probably similar. The other main issue is bikes tend to be mapped lean for emissions and by fattening the fueling it brings down temps, but obviously that is tricky to get done correctly.

If you have found 690 hot, don't even sit down on the 1190 :-)))) I have owned both 690 enduro and duke and none of them was disturbing hot as 1190. :-)))

Same problem here, noticed it at the first ride and now temperatures are rising it becomes a irritating thing.

I also had a scorch on my new gear below the right leg from the exhaust.

I think/hope it's a matter of time before KTM will make modifications for both the problems.

Rest of the bike is fine, after several BMW's (GS/A) it gives riding a whole new dimension

I had similar issues with the 990.

I had the pipes ceramic coated inside and out, there are difference types of coatings, mine was the one that provided the most amount of heat insulation.

That has made a huge difference in the amount of heat being felt off the pipes. Also aftermarket exhaust if an option does a great deal to remove the heat signature as well.

I WOULD NOT wrap the pipes because KTM uses a very thin metal for their headers and they are extremely susceptible to crystalline fractures that result from being wrapped, in essence they cook themselves apart due to the excess heat retained from the wraps.

A good read about this very problem:

Mate of mine has a 1199 pinagali Ducati and he says they had the same problem and Ducati made a carbon shield and sent it free of charge to all its owners. I have not noticed it on my one as it is winter here now and all my attention is focused on dodging obstacles in my path at high speed Im sure when the bikes get to the USA they might have a fix for it

Thanks for writing. Expect more contributions from other users.
KTM has not yet prepared a solution to the problem here in europe. Someone wrote that it is preparing but it is not a sure thing.
