Second service?

Hello.

Has anyone here had the second service done yet?
My bike has 15'000km on the odo and is due for the second service soon.
Just wondering how much it will cost. First service was 2200kr (Swedish)
Also going to get Metzeler Karoos 3 fitted.
Good tire for the 1190R?

Hopefully.
good idea - there is a thread on the German forum that already has quite a list of issues experienced by some

I just read a comment about the vibration, yes there is a little vibration on the handle bars on motorway speeds but not too much. The bigger problem is the heat and also the fuel vapour and smell :)

I personally think to sell my bike because of the heat but then again I don't think I can find a bike like this sort of do it all.

Ktm create a fantastic bike it's not faultless but it's sure fantastic. I hope ktm would have think about this before.

By the way the bike I test rode before I bought my ktm 1190 was vibrating very bad under my feet. Funny enough didn't felt any heat from that bike .

Well we have got a nice forum here so we can discuss our problems and find answers.

Wait for someone to produce something like the Akro Ti end can the 990 had.

They sorted a lot of heat issues out on that.

Hey Bundu,
I think I read "in your forum" about the airfilter not sealing properly and letting dirt go into the airbox clean side? And the KTM dealers replacing it a no cost with a DNA unit, the only aftermarket filter available so far.

Also, the poor design of front intakes letting water hit the paper filter, thus destroying it

Oh great, now we talk real issues here, not only the many annoyances. The burning ass, waterfilled blinkers, flashing rearlight, loss of coolant, stupid sidestand, collapsing seat foam, buffeting screeen I tolerate. But if they fucked up on vital functionality design with the amount of engineering resources claimed used, I'm slightly dissapointed...
I wonder how many days are needed on next service if they are to fix all these things. I guess it will be the usual, no complaint, no fix. I will make sure to bring the list we make here .

YES IT IS !
This afternoon, i've a look, again, with fuel lines and particularly tank vent lines.
I saw that there are two tank vents with two short hoses who arrive in one long hose (with an Y) which is going on the ground.
I'm going to try to remove the Y and put two long hoses, one for right tank vent and one for left tank vent which are going on the ground both.
I think (i hope) that tank vents will be more performing like that and, in my dream, fuel smell disapear.

I hope i am understood with my spectacular english

Maybe this issue was present in the very early bikes, seems KTM dealers already know about this so they should be fixing it. It's a really easy fix, also very easy to check your airbox for peace of mind.

I'm affraid you're right
If all KTM dealers receive "the mother house order" to make the changes, they will do it, but in real life...
First service for my 1190R and only two changes ordered by KTM Austria "on the computer" for my bike serial number : longer keys and heat seat protection, nothing else at the moment.
No side stand, no air filter, no flashing stop light (dealer said me "flashing what ? what it is ?" ), etc.

BUT, i'm in love with this bike

the tank has to come off to check the airbox.... bit of a PITA

apparently KTM are still working on a permanent fix, possibly an extra filter in the air vent.

From the German forum I'm gathering that the whole side stand is being redesigned and will be replaced after many complaints about repeated broken springs and unsteady parking of bike with panniers

So do you think that they will recall, or simply sell modified sldestand and air boxes on 2014 model bikes?
