Chances are were are all going to have issues with the stupid "bladder" they use to seal the spoke wheels. My dealer specifically has told me they have had problems with this set up and not to slime the things as that eats the TPS sensor.

I would rather have cast ism anyway I don't plan of taking mine off road. I am trying to source some that will fit.

Ive checked for punctures,snooped around and can find nothing.
I've never had tubeless tire....researching a bit it seems KTM has had a bit of an issue with the spoke sealing band.
Wondering just how common this has been...
I've been switching tires fairly regularly between knobbies and the stock tires. I never had a leak with the stock tires, but as soon as I went to knobbies, I started losing pressure. The key is to keep the tire pressure above 35psi. The way the inner spoke seal works, is it needs that much pressure to keep the seal in place, otherwise, it can lose pressure pretty fast. Once I learned this little trick I haven't had any more pressure issues.

A much easier solution would be to install tubes. Thats the great thing about the KTM setup, got a leak? install tubes.

Cast wheels suck on off road bikes.

Dealer is replacing sealing band no questions asked by KTM.
He's a bit hard edged and doesn't mince words with manufacturer when there are problems...or with people when they are a bit whiny!
Be ready in time for days off...
Hoping it's not a continuing saga but we will see.
Once the stock tires are worn a set of TKC 80s will be going on....geeze I hope that doesn't compound the issue.
As far as pressure goes I was always in the 44lb range till the leak started....

There's a lot to be said for tubeless tire. Everyone should have the pleasure of a rear flat out in the boonies--compare repair joy with tube vs plugging tubeless on the bike. I have run Tubliss on my dirt bikes for many years. For repair ease and ability to run lower pressures.

Hope KTM gets their tubless setup sorted out. May be a little learning curve on the rider side for some.....

FWIW

I had issues also but it started when i took the TKC80 off the rear and put the OEM back on for a 3k trip. I slimed it and 4k miles later still holding air and the sensor still works. I am sure it was the inner seal they use. When the I spoon on the new TKC80 I am sealing the spokes with a little dab of goop on each one under the rubber seal on the inside of the rim.

I would never go back to running tubes in the tires unless I had no other choice.

I run the rear on my 990 with goop on the spoke nipples--no bladder.

I don't intend to ride off road other than the occasional gravel road. I bought the KTM in rather than the Multistrada bc I have a KTM dealer and I had to make several trips out of state to get my Hypermotard warrantied.

great combination 1190 to travel and the Hyper for short rides

Hmmm. That does sound like a nice stable of bikes.

I test rode a Hyper and that thing was a riot.

The saga continues...
Liner replaced and all seemed well....but its leaking again.
Dealer is giving me his rear new rim n tire while they try to figure it out.
This is starting to get annoying.

My front leaks but the rim has a couple good flat spots so I'm not too surprised.

I'll be replacing the whole wheel soon and will get this one tended to afterwards.

Well I picked up something and put a good hole in center of tread of the stock tire.
It's been plugged and is holding air but I have no confidence in it and doing any fast speed so I have ordered the set of TKC 80s instead of just replacing the back stocker.
Should be here in a couple days.

I'm also having a leak on the front tyre in one of the rim spokes. It looses around 0,3 BAR every day and I'm just waiting for the next service to fix it.
