All I really want is KTM to accept and admit the Unifilter as a valid third party solution that won't void my warranty.

I get this

But why the fuck should we have to do this in the first place. I love working on bikes and pulling the tank is a lovely relaxing am with a cup of coffee. The point is the air box sucks and if people just say screw it and drop in a filter that fixes a problem Ktm should fix nothing will ever get done.

I agree, but I would rather fix it myself and ride than wait for some corporation to come up with a solution.

My leakdown test was very bad so the dealer is pulling my motor to further inspect and figure out if rebuilding is an option or new engine. Im obv pulling for new engine if its rebuilt there better be extra warranty. Im now wondering just how much dirt the bike inhaled with only having 1800 miles and maybe 600-700 were off paved road. Not happy but dealer is going to see how things look once torn down per ktms instructions. I have a feeling they are going to go through this process a lot! Already told dealer he better sell a uni kit to every 1190 buyer. What a mess!!

On my motor I have around 6000 miles or 10000 km of very dusty riding on many dirt roads so I dont even want to know how my motor looks on the inside. Riding to the dealership tomorrow because they have not contacted me since monday when I dropped the bike off. Getting fed up with this dealership now

Use oil analysis to check if your air filter is letting dust into the engine. If it has you will have proof to show KTM and if not you will sleep better at night.

I've used Blackstone (USA) for years for my diesel trucks. Peace of mind for $25.

I put the Uni filter on tonight. The inside of the airbox was pretty dusty, along with the throttle bodies. Not as bad as some on here, but I just picked up the bike 3 weeks ago. 700 miles, and one dirt ride of about 60 miles last weekend. That was a really dusty ride.
I'm convinced after seeing mine the problem was not fixed from earlier versions.
And what a PITA getting to the air filter. After owning KTM's for past 12 years, I expect easier access to the air filter from them. They always set the bar for quick air filter changes in the past. The 950 was a PITA too, I think the 1190 might be worse.

If it was really dusty and inside had a coating of dust you may want to at least make dealer aware. Mine only has 1800 miles less than half off road and only 1 really dusty 2 day 550 mile trip with about 150 or so miles of dusty roads and my engine will be out of my bike tomorrow for KTM to figure out the next step because its toast!

Hey Guys

May i suggest to you if you are replacing the air filter yourself, that you take comprehensive photos of the box and everyhting else.
Set the camera so it shows the date and time.
This will give you some leverage if any asswipes want to give you hard time. Its just a thought...

My filter is being installed by the dealer today.
I will report later...
