I bet there are a lot more riders out there that have had no problems than those that have had problems...the ones with no problems are busy having fun riding their bikes...the ones with problems are busy looking for solutions and voicing their concerns, which is why there appears to be a lot more dodgey bikes than good ones. The actual percentage of bikes sold that have had problems I am sure would be very very small. You see this with lots of new model of bike, or car for that matter. For the record my 2014 adv r has been trouble free so far for 2500km (apart from falling over in the dirt once...)

There are YouTube videos of KTM manufacturing processes. Engines are hand assembled and run on an engine dyno to check power/leaks and then the oil is replaced and they go into a manufacturing inventory to wait to be assembled in a chassis. After bike assembly they are run a second time on a chassis dyno and that is the oil you get when you buy a new bike. I ran my 1190 R thru 5 heat cycles and full range of RPM's in about 150 miles. After an oil change it was ready to ride normally (what ever the hell that might be for a 150 hp dirt bike ). It had 1.3 miles before my first ride.

I'm of a size where the stock seat won't for me (low front cutout). James Renazco sent me pictures of one he did recently so I'm having him build my 3rd Renazco seat (the 690 and 990 seats he did were perfect).

Did your bike come with the WP stickers on the forks? My 2014 didn't.

I've witnessed the birth of my 1190 at the factory in Mattighoffen.

My bike came with the stickers in the zippered pouch. I put them on the forks myself.
As for any troubles. The only thing I have noticed with my bike is the lower, rear, right side engine to frame bolt is missing and it appears there are no threads in the engine either.
I plan to thread it myself and get a 30mm bolt for it. Seems like there are several out there with the same issue.

Other than that the bike is excellent in every other way.

thanks! I never got a bag of stickers.

There are other posts on here about that skid plate mounting boss not being threaded. Mine was threaded from the factory but many others have had problems. A simple tap job will fix.

^ Can anyone clarify there is a bolt supposed to be in that spot? The engine is supported just above that spot so I don't think it is structural but just a place for the skid plate mounting.

Is this true?

You never tap both sides as a mounting point. One side always has a clearance so that both parts can be pulled together. I can't see KTM tapping the frame and the engine at the same time. That is why I think it is simply a mounting tab for the skid plate.

Yeah, not a biggy for me. I will do it myself.

Well, from the instructions for mounting the skidplate, first step is to remove the bolt that is supposed to be there...

That's on hype kickstand side. I believe the complaints are on the other side.

Edit: my bad. That is a center stand I see.

But I still don't think that boss on the right side is anything but a skid plate mounting tab.

Nope, look again, they are showing both sides. That's the center stand.

This is from, my instruction booklet, and my bike is uncircumsized, uhh, un tapped..

It's supposed to be there. KTM knows about it and is sending out parts kits to dealers for installation.

Also, my 2013 has the bolt there.

You tap the engine not the tab. The bolt passes through the tab and tightens into the engine case.
