You have a 3yr warranty now so if it does, just before the warranty is up, have them replace it.

I've heard no talk of KTM extending the warranty in the USA as they have in other locales.

That is the KTM way.....keep on them as they can't admit there is a problem around the world, offer fixes and extended warranties but only in some countries. Legal shyte storm just waiting to happen.

Floating rotors.

Hi.

A floating rotor (disc brake) doesn't move on a street bike, doesn't matter if it's a trail or a sport bike. They only move on race bikes if you try to move them with your hands.

You should try out the full floating brembos fitted to the odd Ducati over the years, they rattle like tambourines.

My full floating break tech iron rotors made noise when being pushed around but not when riding . No big deal on the Ducati

KTM customer Service?

I've been trying to contact KTM USA. I've called for the last 4 days, no one ever answers the phone. There is a message saying leave a message and they will get back to you. I have called 10 times left 6 messages and still no call back.
KTM is a major company selling lots of bikes, I't hard for me to understand how they can do business like this.
Has anyone else had similar problems trying to make contact with KTM USA?

Wow, just found this thread (I have a 990).

The 2015 Honda Africa Twin (rumoured) suddenly looks interesting!

Amongst the usual I have the trip that only shows the range in Kilometres, even if I set the speed to miles

If you live in the UK and have any problems please bombard info@ktm.co.uk NOW with a list of faults.

Major Big Honking Problem!

I'm not riding it enough!
I'm in 91 degree heat & not in cool mountain air!
I'm at work!
Again . . . . not on my bike, now that's a problem.

the problems with my 1190 are:

Not enough time to ride it
its hard on tires
too easy to attract attention of the police (specially with TC off)
have to oil the damn chain too often

Definitely hard on rear tires. On the 950, I would change the tire along with the oil. This tire is not going to last anywhere near that long.

I heard the fix is to keep the traction control on.....

in my financial analysis the amount of money spent on extra tires is well worth the extra smiles no TC generates
