The airbox is cheaper, you don't lose any performance and the problem is solved. Would be an easy choice for me

Also decent tyre valve caps so you dont loose air, you can see the small plastic one sitting on the floor...thats what I did...

Hey mate. Can you expnad on thetyre cap thing? I have noticed my tyres lose pressure over a few days as well. Did the metal caps stop this?

Those are nice looking tire caps. I've not personally inspected those to see if the have an actual seal in them, but tire caps in general are not made to hold the air in your tire. The primary function of a tire valve cap is to keep dust and dirt out of the valve. The guts of the valve hold the air in the tire. If your loosing pressure then you have a leak in your tire or a leaky/loose valve stem. Most any automotive parts supplier sells valve stem wrenches. I like the ones that are built into the top of the valve caps. I put them on the front tire of every one of my bikes. If they offer plastic or metal, go with the metal, as the little teeth break easily on the plastic ones. Unless your valve caps have a seal inside, they will still leak if the guts of the valve is loose.

You will however have some of the nicest looking tire valve covers I have ever seen and they certainly look good on the 1190. Cheers.:)

Not a problem mate, these tyre caps are available at all good bike shops.
I have fitted them on all of my bikes and cars, they have a small rubber ring inside of them and will stop dirt, grime, etc.. I also believe it will stop some air escaping. This is my non educated guess..
Compared to what KTM give, you can see it its on the floor in the photo.
Mine is a 100% improvement..
