I have heard, that these constant reading should prevent customers bringing their bikes to the dealer all the time.
I can't remember how many times I had to pull 990 side in traffic and wait for it to cool down in. So far, 1190's indicator never moved up, but in the -General Information- tab, on the dash, it shows oil temperature, last week saw that increasing till 97 C, don't know what will happen in summer.

Then, water temp will be even higher. This bike has a heat exchanger and Im not sure, if this is an advantage in your case.
But obviously the gauge is not reporting properly, if this is intented from the factory or not. How many beams it shows, when your engine is hot?

I would ask Joe Pichler. He has his bike in Africa right now and I guess he faced hot temperatures in the last weeks.

Good luck.

As I have said before my friend, the temperature level on the dash never changes; it's in the middle always.
I have inquired about this earlier in his thread, apparently he was ok with the heat and no problem, as well as the comfort of the reat seat.

Thumbs down

All I'll say about the 1190 is I am glad I bought a 2012 990 and should have waited for the Baja. The only canyons I want to carve have water and mud in them.

Then I suppose, something is wrong with the display or electronics. Have you spoken to your dealer about it?
If he is overstrained, I would directly speak to Austria, Mattighofen. If you have difficulties with the language, I would offer my help.

Why you can't believe that KTM designed a very good cooling system? On my FJR1300 the temp indicator never do nothing, if the temp is cold the system close the water flow, if the temp is hot the fan remove the excessive heat, that is all.

It would be nice, if it would be always that easy. 990 owners sometimes install a second fan.

There are perks with many jobs, some being better than others!

Seriously, I'd rather speak to a salesperson who has hands-on experience of the product they are selling than one who can only recite marketing blurb ad nauseam or who makes it up (often showing up their ignorance).

Never managed one yet. Be nice if they learnt to flush the casting sand out for starters.

Georgios, thanks for your help, honestly speaking, before getting in touch with them, I want to ride the demo bike. At the moment, I can not compare to a bike which is supposed to work perfect.

There is a twin fan setup on the 1190 - and rather than simply being an 'on/off' switch for the fans, they run at variable speeds depending upon coolant temperature. Supposed to provide much more stable temperature control but the proof will only really be seen when (if ?) we hit summer temperatures
