When I bought the 950, I read the HoW page and assumes the chances or those things going wrong in my bike were low because only some units displayed each problem. Then bam, 2 biguns in a month.
The oil change on the 9x0 is much more complex than the KLR, there are ways to reduce this extra complexity but not to completely remove it. True your 950 could be cursed but statistically this is unlikely, you're already committed to doing the water pump so a second failure here is just as likely as with a new 990. KTM is going to fix the generator side, assuming that this implies ever other issue in the HOW is now certain to occur isnt logical.
