Good grief, that is WAY too much work to get to an air filter.

They say they did fix some air filter problems but they don't acknowledge the floodings, just the dust.

I actually just bought the filter when i got my first service and left for them to replace, as they had to pull the filter out anyway for the warranty filter replacement.. that was good of them..

I would also like to bet that they have released the firmware upgrade for the traction.. Ever since the first service it doesn't seem to pop up as much.. it will just a little but puts it back down after feeling it just come off the ground..

I've been wondering if i havent given it as much as i was before as its so smooth.. anyone else got a service in the last 2 weeks and felt the same?

Well the air filter must be changed indeed. Let's see if there is going to be any changes on the central stand.


Can someone please list me all the recalls , software updates that were announced for the 2013 model ?

Thank you

I still think the air intake is a fundamentally bad design and cannot be "fixed", so it will probably stay a problem for the life of the bike.
Having various filter layers trying to stop water at the airbox front is just a "patching" trying to fix the problem after it happened.
Water should never be able to reach that point, and with those straight pipes I don't think this is possible.

As a side note, it kind of shows how KTM is doing the concept of its bikes now vs then (when "then" means early 2000s). The 9*0 had its share of flaws but fundamentally bad solutions were not among those. It was conceived "in the field" and it shows. The 1190 seems designed with focus groups, and it shows.

I'm quite curious how much riding in general and adventure riding in particular is Craig Dent (the designer of the bike) and the rest of the team doing.

Ok , there is something not clear to me. I have seen the images of a full of dust air box. Which from what i understand the OEM air filters do not filter well enough allowing all the dust to get in.

You are mentioning water. I haven't seen how the entire air intake is made on the bike. But from my understanding there is something like a ram air that can suck water in ? Is that what you describe? Cause getting air in the air filter or water cause someone is riding through a river are two different things.
