New Starter

To all. I did a bit of web searching and indeed the 2015 1190s have the SD1290 starter. The part #s differ from the earlier 1190s and now match the SD1290 part #. The question is what is the cutoff...

High idle speed

As several have suggested check the idle setting of the TPS. I have not had tuneECU connected to my bike in a while but I believe you can check the TPS value with the engine off and the key on. See...

heated gear connector

GCecchetto, Not so familiar with the 1190 but on my 990 I routed the coax style connector inside the frame directly from the battery to a location just under my seat. The coax connector I used has...

Electrical excess

MarchHare,

It has always seemed odd to me why many "Adventure" bikes have such meager charging systems. You appear to have added a number of energy consuming items to your bike from stock. My...

Oil in coolant

That looks very odd. If the pinkish stuff is the coolant than your oil is floating on the... bottom. Not likely. Why not pull the overflow bottle off and examine the contents more closely. Not...

Starter sticking

Starter relay most likely the issue. I think when you get to the key switch to turn off that little bit more time gives the relay a chance to drop out.

Good luck

Wissam, All the luck in the world on your ride. Discounted parts??? They should be giving you a bike and a boat load of parts to just "test" on your epic ride.

Well I'll be. Somebody already "pranged" an 1190r. Actually a bit envious as that is the only way I would be able to afford an 1190.

If you are using quality synthetic oils and OEM KTM filters I see nothing wrong with going the entire trip without a change.
