Didn't travel yet with the bike, to be checked again soon.
Very nice on the screw! I will do the same as I have one that was stripped by the dealer now.

I feel strongly that grease is best used for the filter surface only, and that it isn't a good solution for the airbox lid. You need a better gasket, so IMHO it is best to make one with RTV.

Seen that, it's a good idea.

Removed Uni Socks-Different bike!

I was installing heated grips this week, and decided to look at my Uni socks. They were delaminating again. I had glued them back together previously, but decided to take them out. After riding the bike, it is totally different with the socks out. I forgot how much power the bike has after 5k miles of the Uni filter in. They were catching a fair amount of dirt before the prefilter, but the power loss doesn't seem worth it. 3rd gear power wheelies no problem now , just going to have to check the filter more often. May have to come up with some other method of prefiltering like pantyhose or something when in dusty conditions, but the prefilters went in the garbage.

I also removed the the prefilters, given i only use my EDS 1190 for the road.
I also used used my wifes panthy hose and it does work it will trap dirt bugs and any other crap. You also have the option of the KTM socks for the intakes.
These cost about $79 here in Australia, just get your wifes pantyhose and you will be fine...

Ok, some interesting info regarding the airfilter, was at one of our local KTM dealers in Gauteng in SA, Ultimate Performance, buying some stuff for my 990, and I asked the guy there what is KTM doing about the air filter issue, and apparently KTM is replacing them with DNA aftermarket filters, and it is apparently solved the issue.

KTM DNA air filter

I installed a DNA air filter in my 1190 Adv R in June at the Las Vegas KTM dealer. This KTM rebranded filter had just come out & was not yet available in Canada.
I am now getting my 15,000 km service & will see how it looks inside.
I will update later.

So I've been running a unifilter since the dealer rebuilt the engine, which was way back at 3000 miles. I definately noticed a drop in power but was happy the filter was working. I also remembering the intake noise was slightly toned down from stock

Im just over 10,000 miles now and installed a Rottweiler intake system (stage 3). OMG is the bike fast now!!! It feels more responsive, especially in the low to mid range, although this may be partly due to the o2 sensor bypass dongle I added. The intake noise is also very loud now under full throttle to the point where it pretty much overwhelms the stock exhaust note. It sounds great, just not whisper quiet like it once was. Very happy customer. The guys at rottweiler were great too, they shipped a few days late because they were backed up on orders, but shipped it overnight cross country (I paid for standard) to make up for it.

I'm in the process of installing the Rottweiler filter. When I removed the stock airbox there was no "o" ring on the rear throttle body. Time to order and wait for parts . Airbox was pretty clean inside. Going to check and adjust valves while I have it this far apart. Have 4K miles on so far.

DNA filter - looks good

I just had my 15,000 km service & the air box looks great.
The DNA/KTM filter did the trick even though it was dirty.

1190 Air Box leak

It got me. Dealer said 2014 fix the problem. I picked up my bike June 14th. went for a ride with Captain Ron in the dust most of the ride. took it in for air filter check. they dont do that til 8k miles. i bought filter and opened it to find the dirt thing. buttoned up and to the my Reno Nv dealer. They are working on it. I want to get the aftermarket filter but think i need a new engine first and want dealer to deal with it. should not have to buy after market part to make you new bike dependable. dont look good.
Im a new ktm guy. long time GS. KTM was good while it lasted. Let ya know what dealer does.

Sorry to hear you have troubles but ................you have been a member here since June 2003 and were not proactive towards your airbox? That is what this forum is for - learn from others so you don't experience the same. Come on man!

Yeah, stop taking it out on the bike, it's all your fault for not repairing your new bike before riding it.

For those too thick to recognize it, this is called sarcasm.

And lighten up.
