The GS WC used less :(

No petrol smell here, but there is some visible fumes coming from the vent tube (one of the three on the left side, where one is blocked. Anybody know what the blocked one is for, and what happens if KTM blocked the wrong one?)

The fuel consumption is too high for me , I think it's the city riding I am doing. When you go fast at A roads the bike seems to get better fuelling

Tankakar, may not be you case but...
I get shitty mpg on city riding, no matter the bike I'm riding. When me & and my buddies had XT660Rs they were getting 50% more range than me. However, once on the open road we got the same mpg.
With the 990 is the same. I see the fuel light showing up at 160-180 km in the city while my buddies can reach 250 km. Again, on twisty roads/highway/offroad we get the same mpg.
Even my Yamaha BWs 125 gets bad mpg in city traffic!

Why? I really don't know but after a few years I have the theory (and I may be wrong, it happen all the times ) that I'm always riding in a lower gear than my buddies and I also live pretty close from work, so a huge amount of the time that I spend in city riding is with my engine "warming up". Rich condition, very bad mpg.

Again, I may be wrong or may not be your case but if it's close, forget about city riding consumption for a while and take a look at your mpg figures on road/highway/twisties and report back.

I do warm up my bike but I guess the bike is a little thirsty and yes outside the town it's good.

Me too. That's my theory, 2-3 min of warming up for a 10 minute ride, repeat that a few times a day and I have my bike warming up almost 30% of his running time...

Crush Orange

If you really love Honda or Ducati, you can buy a red bike; but you don't have to.

If you live, eat, and breathe Yamaha road racers, you can buy a blue (or blue and white) bike.

And if, poor soul, you have a neurosis for Kawasaki, said manufacture will oblige you with your fix of a lime-green missile.

But you don't have to. All of the above will happily sell you a variant of all their models with nary a trace of their corporate hue.

But not KTM. Every single bike they make has something on it in orange: a sticker, a shock spring, a crash bar, or brake-lever; or the whole thing. Now, I applaud their passion, and their drive, but I have a problem: orange makes me puke. Do you think I can I claim back the price of a respray on medical grounds?

Flame on...

A moto race engine builder friend of mine says that I was too easy on the engine during break-in and that I should have "hammered" it more. Dunno if that's the answer, but eventually it stopped loosing/using oil so probably the eventual outcome was the same, if somewhat disconcerting when having to repeatedly add oil to a new bike....
Thanks hubilado. When you say "hammered" ...means I need to be more agressive with the gear change ...and the acceleration?

I wants to have news from dealer today (the bike still under observation).
