I did the reset as described below, worked on my 2014 adv r?. I spoke to the dealer and his mechanic and was told that several of the bikes sold before 2014 ny have been in with a unscheduled service light that needed resetting. They reckon it was the change of the year messing with the bikes brain.
  • hold the up and down buttons and turn on the ignition
  • continue to hold the up and down buttons until the display cycles through all the menus
  • continue to hold the up and down buttons when the setting menu is reached
  • after a few seconds the settings menu will change to allow you to choose the kms and months until next service.
  • You can now let go of the up and down buttons
  • Use the "set" button to increase the numbers. Keep going and the kms and months will cycle back around to 0 if you go past your choice.

Yeah, that is the tester sequence I tried and it didn't work. Being the first one out the door at my Local Dealer, they are more than happy to check it out for me. For how long they'll do that it yet to be seen.

I'll try it again when I get home.

Cheers.

Ok, after many weeks of reading and a bit upset by air box issues...

Ordered and deposit done yesterday for a 2014 grey standard; no off road use (400 DRZ for this purpose) and want electronics suspension
Have easily (even in January...) and well sold my 1200 GS 08 50 000 km in very good shape (my second one, after a 2006 and 60 000 km) but wanna try other things...

Akra
Aluminium panniers
Heated grips
High screen

Should be delivered by 6-8 weeks (not emergency, since it won't be my daily and winter is not the best part of the year...)

On order: radiator guard and Tutoro oiler

Any of you guys have first hand experience with the 2014 air box? Is it any better? I have a 2013 and am in doubt between getting the Uni Filter or replacing the 2013 parts with the new 2014 parts. I would prefer to replace the parts, but only if the new parts actually solve the problem of course...

Went to looky today

Well I went to my closest dealer today to have a look and a sit. That bad boy is TALL. Even with a lowering link, I think I am out. On my very tippy toes I could barely touch. I am at 5'9" tall with a 30" inseam. Looks like I am back to the drawing board. I was all excited too.

What are the issues with the 2013 box? I do know that the 2014 box changed, something about some re-enforcement ribs. I have been talking with UNIfilter AUS and they state that their filter that was specifically designed for the 2013 box is going to get slightly modified to accommodate the changes of the 2014 box..... and that the goal is that the filter will still work between the two versions of airboxes.

There were some reports of plastic warping due to heat and dust slipping through into the engine. Hence the Uni filter. If KTM solved these issues with the 2014 box however, I prefer updating the OEM parts over the Uni filter.

Personally, if I owned a 1190, and there are questions related to the air filter seal, I would pursue any known solutions to resolve it. From what I understand presently from UNIfilter AUS, the modified filter will fit both boxes. Not sure how much a 2014 airbox assembly would cost as my usual resources for micro fiche does not have the prices posted yet.

apparently, it would only cost about 50 euros in parts (basicly, the base of the air box needs to be renewed, together with some bolts and small stuff).
But I want to know for sure this would solve the issue.

I am not going to be a good source to answer that question presently because I do not have a clear understanding of the original issue, nor a example airbox of either version, nor a UNIfilter ver1 or ver2 filter in hand to examine. However I am planning on stocking the UNIfilter ver2 filter for the 1190 soon in the USA as soon as they finish a production run next week.

Try this: switch bike on and cycle to the settings menu. Hold down both up and down buttons. A new window will pop up with mileage and month which can be set as you wish.

Works on my 2014 1190R.
