Once you select sport mode your life will change, you will become 10 yrs younger..

On the preload side of things, I selected 1 rider and 1 bag, i found this setting to be very useful at keeping everyhting nice and firm and complaint in the corners. Thats the setting I also used on my K1300s..

Question Question for the Orange Veterans??

Picked up the 1190R yesterday. Ordered all the normal stuff, Radiator guard,Headlight guard, upper and lower chain guards, Heated grips, Tail extension,lights,Soft bags,Akrapovic exhaust.
My question is on the Warranty. I declined the Service package, I will be doing all of the routine maintenance. and I bought the extended warranty, its not a factory warranty, and I made sure it was an actual extended warranty not an additional that would run with the actual 1 year Manufacturers warranty. So it says I have a 60 month mechanical warranty, all non wear parts are covered.
Is this worth the 1200.00 dollars I paid.

My speedo is off by about 6 mph at 65. Off by four at 40. Once the snow melts, I will continue my tests:-)

Hard to say if its worth it. It was not worth it to me yesterday when I picked up mine. To you it was, so you paid for it. I do not get extended warranties on my other vehicles either.....but I do turn wrenches on my equipment also so it has to be something bad for me to haul anything into a dealer.

Lucky you, that you get to put it together yourselve. I seem to recall a post that the bike needs to have the software activated.

It's actually at the dealer they sent the pic so I stopped in to check it out. Hopefully picking it up Tuesday.

Big Christmas

Wahoo! Picked my baby up on Friday and just got back from my first 200 mile ride. What a bike. Touratech boxes arrive tomorrow with an assortment of other farkels. This truly was a great Christmas.
My only issue is the tires, the bike comes with Conti Attack’s, great tire for the road but not so hot for dirt. Does anyone have suggestions for a good duel sport tire? Seams tough to find 21” 18” tires.

Personally I think that the Heidenau K60 would be a good choice for this bike. Definitely going to be better than the Attack off road.

I am always seeing this on tall bikes in crates. they used to remove the front wheel for crating right?

Now just curious did they crank the ties to compress the front forks this low or?

it appears to just be cranked down? the tubes may be slid up in the clamps, I didn't really look that close?

Picked mine up on New Years Eve. Nothing ordered yet to farkle it up, but I'll be in a biz trip most of Jan and will be adding bags, bars, and I think the Touratech skid plate. Mine is the standard in grey paint.

I notice my speedo is a little faster than the radar signs posted around the Puget Sound area as well.

Anyone have any suggestions for the service interval warning on the computer? I tried to follow internet suggestions to reset it, but KTM may have removed the capability to reset by the user. The dealer had to reset mine (wasn't due for service anyway). I'm sure those of us wanting to do our own maintenance will find that bothersome.

how bad is it if the forks are compressed in the crate for a long time? over a month?

thanks
