Course foam filters are also placed in the intake snorkels so no tiny rocks etc get through.

My dealer bolton, didnt put the socks in the front intake because they are apparently too restrictive. i think they couldn't be arsed.

- am worried about air cleaner, especially with the engine losing power. The dealer says the uni filter system will void warranty, but they don't have any info on the standard air cleaner dust leaks.
- i think the fuel cap leaks fumes, and bike stinks of fuel on a hot day
- crack developing in tank cover paintwork (minor paint inclusion)
- crack developed in dash glass for no reason
- brake fluid reservoir leak. Water now in fluid (must flush)
- ignition key update doesn't work and need programming.
- front Conti trail attack worn right out in 5,000 kms(ok, this is my fault)
- i think the touratech luggage system is crap compared to BMW (I've had 3 GS's)
- still no key for the top box
- no parts in stock.

That's it for the moment - have been waiting a few months for the dash.

I love the power when I have it. Seems to mono forever when the engine is on song, and absolutely hammers off road.

The dealer now has the bike. I hope they fix it.

I still love the bike, but with the power compromised every other little niggle is testing me. I will once again be happy if they get the power back.
hey I noticed after i took mine to peter stevens and went for a long ride on the weekend it was breaking down like a limiter or something at 7000rpm to 9000rpm depending on which gear I was in, it feels fine before it but its weird, Im wondering if its PS's factory tune they have or their machine?
Did you get yours fixed yet?

Im just curious, for warranty related issues, do you have to take the KTM's back to the same dealer that you bought it from or can you take it to any KTM dealer?

Assuming you can take it to any KTM dealer, ridiculous if you couldn't.

I find Boltons exceptional to deal with on every level, pitty it takes me almost 2 hours to get there. Worth it though.

I fitted the uni filter and have full confidence it will work, fitted the pre filter socks up the front to, power seems fine still.

I hate that my 1190 chews through a tyre in no time at all Mitis Dakar is just a tad to soft! Few other tiny issues and one which ticked me off a little but I'm sure will get sorted once I find the time to run it down to the dealer

I've got mitis front and rear, E10? I'll be honest I didn't do any research on them, or any tyre. We organised a last minute trip up the high country last week and found myself in a hurry to organise some, I got Boltons to fit whatever they had or suggested. The grip they offer was impressive. Absolutely tore it to bits on any knarly hill climbs. Probably my bad. Have managed to get another trip out of it this weekend and it couldn't get any balder, surprised I didn't get any punctures.

Not worried, had a ball up there again this weekend put any concerns of river crossings to rest, did plenty without a drama.

On another note, these bikes are a massive talking point everywhere you pull up ;) meet some good people!

Yeah I agree about the talking point.. its great! if only girls were into adventure bikes then you would feel like a rockstar haha.. ;)

I had a pair of E10's and I got about 5000 to 5500km's out of the rear, the last 1000km's they were slippery as shit on and offroad.. chucked the e09 Dakar on the back and was awesome..

No, mine is not fixed yet. It's been there for 11 days now, but in fairness their KTM trained guy has had it only for one week.

Been waiting for recall parts, and I might get it back tomorrow....maybe. They were going to call me back this afternoon with an update but didn't once again. Strike rate for returned phone calls is about one in three.

Don't know what's caused the power problem yet. Nor do I know if it's been fixed.

Cool2 KTM 1190r at Indonesia

Hi There,

Just owned 1190r, and ride from Jakarta to Bali and back To jakarta. in total 3500km
the bike is absolutely really fast and light, went for small offroad @Bromo Mountain
but there are something that annoys me;
1. Footpeg its very slippery when it rains so just took off the rubber problem solve
2. Heat of the engine not only at left side but also both side. no solution yet for this issue
3. when I hit bumpy road there are noise at left side. I think its chain to loose. so its always hit the swing Arm. but need to bring to dealer and find out what it is.

overal the bike handle superb, love the power and looks good too

I had what I'm guessing was the same sound. Sounded like plastic rubbing on a wheel or something similar. When I pulled up next I tensioned the chain back up (it was a bit loose) and noise is now gone ;)

Had my 1190 Adv R on the dyno today, and max power was 127.3 HP.

I thought this is weak for a bike that claims 150hp.

I'm sure as with most brands the factory HP #'s are rated at the crank not the rear wheel.

Probably.
You would expect to loose around 15% from crank to rear wheel.
150 - 15% = 127,5

Seems spot on!
