Of course this IS the pirates favorite motorcycle. The 1190 Arrrrrrgh.
Thanks man...am stoked with it! Just off to the left of where that photo was taken is the begining of the Straits of Malacca...which I was recently told by a marine insurance mate of mine are once again the most pirated waters in the world? Arrrggghh indeed!

I'm assuming you are on your way home now to pull apart your air box and take pics for the rest of us...?

I am planning too, but I have only done 150km so far (Singapore is tiny!)...and it has been pretty damp and on road only so far. No dust to speak of, and only a few shallow puddles.

Next couple weeks I will get up into Malaysia and get it on some sandy trails...nothing technical, but should have a lot more dust or deeper water depending on the weather (most likely puddles this time of year).

Will have a look after I rack up a few more km's and let you all know what I find (fingers crossed it has been sorted!!)

I'd be checking what KTM has changed BEFORE the bike is subjected to dust and water...

If it still only has a paper filter, I'd be buying a UniFilter first.

I was under the impression the dust was getting in from a poorly sealed airbox/filter combination, rather than through the paper filter itself?

Will have a look over the weekend and see what I find in there.

Just under $37k. Have you test ridden one yet? Ong has the standard available for test rides. You will be sold once you try it, they are a lot of fun!
Tell Ong Pete sent you ;)
