2014 1190 US Powerparts Skid plate mounting solution

From the Horses mouth:

TLDR Just tap it, not covered under warranty?

Is it a must to drill the hole first before the thread tap?
My case has the hole but no threads.

Yes. Otherwise you could crack the case.

Yes and mind the warning about maximum depth! Unless you like to oil the floor of the garage!

Taps are meant to be used in a specific diameter hole. Too small and you'll ruin your tap.

I would think that someone who presents himself as someone who wants good clean forums wouldn't go flaming around in someone's posts.

Thanks for that! You're a great contributor!

Man, thanks for posting the official fix up. I am not sure I would get a KTM plate but the detail instructions will come in handy when I drill and tap mine.

The 1190 threads seem to attract a lot of these with nothing useful to add:

Wierd, but my bike is tapped. I have the KTM skid plate here waiting to get installed. Looks like a nice well built piece.

And cut Chuck some slack. He really does like the 1190 and is a good friend of mine. He is directly responsible for me pulling the trigger on my 1190. I promise that he holds no bad feelings about the new bike.

I get tired of seeing multiple posts on the same subject too. I can see his point.

OP, thanks for putting up the official info. That will answer a lot of questions.

Thanks for posting this. I noticed the untapped hole when I was fitting the Touratech plate (which doesn't use this mount but instead, uses the peg mounts). Glad it's normal...well, mostly.

Skid plate mounting

Vasculopath-
Thank you for posting this official KTM bulletin. I had read other info on this in other threads, but they didn't have photos posted, nor did they mention (I don't believe) that one had to drill out the hole before tapping, to prevent possible case breakage.
There is a huge amount of assumption of mechanical skills, that goes on in discussions of work on motorcycles, and we all come from different knowledge and experience backgrounds...
I thank you very much for posting this, as I have the KTM plate on order, and due to arrive any day now. As a guy with limited experience wrenching on bikes, I really appreciate this info that is "straight from the horses mouth"

Glad to Help. Real thanks goes to Santa Fe Motorsports for emailing me the info. 8.5mm drill bits are a bit hard to come by it seems. 8.35mm = 21/64 sae, and 8.7mm = 11/32. I just picked up a 21/64 for $5, and will probably tap it this weekend. I already had the tap. FYI, YMMV, but I have had my plate mounted using the front and left side mounts for a few weeks and it is plenty solid if ,like me, your only concern this time of year is keeping road sand off the bottom of the bike and you're not getting into anything real. I do like Winter riding, but I can't wait for spring...

Did you install the skid plate?
Any tips on how the tap went would be appreciated.My case has the hole drilled but not tapped.A 11/32 bit is too large for the hole.A 21/64 is a tad too small.My guess is it's 8.5mm drilled.I don't have a 8.5mm bit either and probably never need it again.

Not that it matters

I did not drill. Just used a new tap and lots of oil. Go slow back and fourth to get the chips out. Mine is perfect
