Uni Pre Filter

Does the gas tank need to be removed to access the pre-filter in the snorkels?

Gastank can be left, just remove the sidepanels, not too much work...

Would much prefer not to lose this, and would really appreciate if anyone has some ideas on re-sealing the internal rim seal.
Same happend to me then the dealer changed the rear tyre. They damaged the rimseal and had to replace it for a new one. Bad luck. The pressure monitoring sensor was twisted and damaged the rimseal. The space between the rim and the pressure monitoring sensor is realy narrow. So watch out for this then changing tyres.

Thanks for the info!

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.)
LOL.

Curious. Do you know why the battery was discharged? If you're riding it regularly it seems strange that it needs charging on its own.

Thanks Lars. This was exactly what was wrong. The tyre pressure sensor rotates around the valve easily when a tyre lever brushes against it, and it pinches the inside rim seal to the rim itself (actually in my case it was the top of a spoke nipple. The rim seal is made from very thin rubber, and just the tiniest pinch make a hole....and your wheel won't hold air.

We vulcanised a patch to the rim seal and it seems fine now, but I ordered a spare rim seal and will carry it with me on longer trips.

Another small thing that I don't actually know is a problem....

The front end has developed a clunk when braking, that is audible at slow speed.

I thought it was loose head bearings so I took off the top triple clamp and tightened the head bearings (which were a little loose), reassembled, and tightened every bolt on the front end. (Ie. brake calipers, low triple clamp, mudguard bolts etc.)

Much to my surprise it still clunks, and you can do this whilst stationery holding the front brake on, and standing over the bike, and oscillating the suspension through around 100mm of stroke.

The clunk is quite pronounced (you feel it through the bars, and can hear it from 3m away), and my wife felt all over the front end and thinks it's coming from inside the fork legs. (Not sure which one, she says it feels like both)

None of my other bikes do this, including my FE570 Husaberg which also has a white power front end, and it's smooth through it's stroke. (I know the damping chambers are different to the 1190)

Would really like to know if this clunk is normal, as we're about to head off on a long trip, and with a few other things going wrong, my confidence in the bike is a little low.

Would anyone with an 1190 R please check if your front end clunks too?

Had this too but it was a loose head bearing. Tightening the upper nuts did the job for me...

I have exaktly the same sound, do not know what it is and my dealer has examined it and have not found something wrong or what it could be?
sound occurs when you brakes a little bit heavier at low speeds, and even after braking when driving away. I have had the "problem" since the bike was new, now it has run absolut 850 km and the sound is still there.

Could you show which bolt it is, on a picture maybe, please?

Side stand

Hi guys,
I've just covered about 2000 km on my new 1190 (non-R). One of the most annoying design of this bike is its side stand. I think the supporting point of this stand is very close to the centre line of the bike. With the side stand down and on slopes (declining to the left), I always have a feeling that it may tip over if I just come off my bike. I always end up moving or re-orientating my bike to a location that I feel more confident. I never have this problem with my previous bikes.

My dealer told me that the 2014 version has a different side stand, and my side and centre stands will be changed next month (under warranty). However, he is not sure if it addresses my above concern.

I wonder if this is a real problem, or it is just me. Perhaps I should have more confident with the design, just get off the bike and let the side stand do its job.

I'm starting to feel guilty having to say this Phil, but mine's not making a clunky noise either...

I've also had my front tightened by the dealer, but still "feel" clunking whilst riding the bike, through the steering - not sure where the problem lies, but a bit concerning

The bike is being shipped right now so can't sent a pick but it the one just under the handle bar with the holes in it. It does need a certain torque value...
