A new problem.... probably not isolated to the 1190, but all modern bikes?
The bolts holding the two halves of the lever assemblies (where the mirrors are mounted) are grade 10.9 bolts, but are screwed into aluminium housings. I crashed enough times on the weekend that the mirror hitting the ground put enough force on this connection to pull the thread out of the bracket. The mirror didnt break and the bolt is fine! I guess I'll be re-tapping the housing and picking up some larger bolts?

Maybe change the setup if you plan to keep on crashing. Dirtbikes have mirrors that fold away when going off-road.

True. I should have taken them off. The mirrors are tuff though!

Is there anyone that can confirm that the dust problem is solved with the 2014 model? I'm thinking about getting a unifilter kit as soon as it is delivered, however I'm also wondering if it will have an effect on the performance of the bike.

I read here somewhere that the maximum speed was significantly lower with the unifilter.

Yes, it would be down from 270 to 240. But I would prefer a little more science behind this, like tests on a dyno before/after.

Also you could not use the pre- filters if you do not plan to go in real dust. Or make a choice if it should be ready to race or ready to rally.

That is what you get for letting these people who have never even seen one diagnose your bike over the internet!!!! Shame on them and shame on you for listening. We keep hearing from one guy here how bad this is and how someone needs to do something and how there needs to be a solution to taking out 20 some bolts to get to the airfilter - hell I can take out 20 bolts before he ends up typing!!!!

A good lesson for everyone - glad your bike runs amazing!!

What is amazing - is all the technology on this incredible bike, which is a great leap forward in the adventure market - and the only issue is possibly a few air box leaks. Get a Unifilter from Australia and STFU.

Imagine - all these on board ECMs and this is all they have to bitch about - GREAT JOB KTM!!!

And to all the 9x0 owners who want to deny that this bike is a step forward - you are kidding yourself if you think the bike you ride is the same as Meoni won the Dakar on - it is not. I don't want a Dakar bike - I can't afford engine changes after stages, mechanics working all night so I can ride the next day, support trucks for days - Enough already. The bike has the trellis frame, WP suspension, V-Twin engine, spoke wheels, and yes - electronics (welcome to 80 automotive tech.)

I'm still waiting for someone with a 2014 model who can take pictures of the new filterbox. Because the partnumbers have changed, there is a good chance the problem was solved.

Well I am assuming if I would have done lots of miles on dust or dirt , I may be would have had a problem with the air filter. My battery needed charging in my case. But still booked a diagnose for next week Wednesday at ktm Croydon.

They will put , under seat heat protection, upload new upgrade for the ECU , check my battery again and also they might even looked at my air filter if they feel like there is problem. This bike is a sort of bike when your body is tired it doesn't feel very nice. Punchy twin may be :)

Hopefully this little problems get sorted my main problem was the gear changes they will look at it this week .

KTM Twins sells a bracket that allows you to move the mirror mount off of the lever bracket(s) for the 9x0. It would probably work on the 1190.

Alternatively, order a set of Ned's (Neduro on the forum) Doubletake fold away mirrors. http://www.doubletakemirror.com/

Out riding in 30 degree c + temps last week and a message pops up on the info screen. " caution ice warning"

Temp is stuck on -10. Seems I have had a sensor failure.
This on top of side stand spring failure and it's been back for several of the tech updates

Back to the dealer I go. Me and him are becoming good friends.

Another one.

Went to change the rear tyre last week, and once changed the wheel started leaking air from the spokes. Removed tyre, can't see anything wrong....but rim still leaks and I might have to put a tube in it and lose the pressure monitoring sensor.

Would much prefer not to lose this, and would really appreciate if anyone has some ideas on re-sealing the internal rim seal.
