    Thank you for the info, My dealer changed the spring too, am havier one. Atually afer using it for few days got better, now it works just fine.

    is the new update you refer a softweare update? hope I'll get it next week for the 1000km check.

    I just finished taking off the crash bars (very heavy) and the stuff for the penniers and the bike looks much better.

    Yes, I have noticed that they keep on updating something on the ecu before delivering the bikes. It looks like my delivery will be next week tuesday; I hope that they have made a good work on this, computer failure would be a very bad experience.

    :clap Lets see it.
    I have been quietly thinking that getting rid of the crash bars on the "R" would be one of the first thing I would do (if I had a 1190).

    While i´m eager to know the gearing difference on the KTM 1190 Adventure compared to my project. They told this in the review:
    "Transmission ratios are different by necessity from the superbike, and first gear is much shorter to accommodate low-speed, off-road travel"

    I have been looking into primary drive and that would be
    40:76 = RC8R
    40:76 = 1190 Adv.

    So what it tells me is all changes have been done to the secondary drive(17-42 - adv and 17-37 - RC8R). And ofcourse the detuning of the engine to accomodate more grunt.

    Time will soon tell.

    Looks like this 1190 Adv is going to be the one to beat.

    Finally took delivery of my new bike on Wednesday.
    LOVE IT!
    But no TPMS.
    Not one of the 3 packs arrived complete either.
    No panniers nor topbox, no heated seats, no high screen, no fancy brake & clutch levers.
    But the Akrapovic pipe is on and sounds brilliant and looks far better than the standard one.

    I think 'primary' is the drive from the crankshaft to the gearbox. Final drive includes the gearbox too. It is in the gearbox ratios where the differences are. For example, RC8 has 1st to 6th ratio 2.47 while the 990 has 2.81.

    How do you get those numbers? Please learn me. Those numbers are interesting.

    I can't believe you are unaware of the very www.gearingcommander.com !!!:1drink

    [for the 990/950 adv engines use the '950 adv' because I think there is a 'bug' in the 990 ratios]

    I guess they are having hard time delivering powerparts, after 10 days from delivery I was able to receive the top case support and the low octain devise, still missing the skid plate


    I finished to work on the bike now, I painted the spoilers that go instead of thr crush bars in black and installed them, in addition I removed the passenger handles and the rear bagage plate.

    original waight 216kg
    akra -4kg
    crash bars -4kg
    reast of the stuff -2kg
    total 206kg.... not bad for a 1200cc

    @igorpetrovic

    Pics would really be nice, the black coloured crash protectors would interest me. How did you paint it?
    By the way, i just came from my garage, my bike is still unused, i tried the side stand. Also goes difficult in the upper position but it seems after some times to become better. More nerving is a bad squeaking clutch lever which i could not stop still now:huh.

    Saw the new 1190 and the 1190 r today, they certainly look better in 'flesh' than in photo's. The shop had two black R's and an orange coloured one with the 19-17 set up. Test ride wasn't on, as it's still full on winter here, Finland, so it's hard to say what they're like. The windscreen looked the part, adjustable. With all the electronic's on the bike, i couldn't help but wonder about the reliability of it all. Still, having the finance, i'd get one tomorrow. It will cost just a tad over 20 000e here, all the same, they're taking lot of order's, appearently number of gs owner's signing the check.

    AussiJussi. Shame they did not give you a test ride since it would be an excellent time to test the bike in the snow & cold (A mate of mine in Sweden had -17 the other day!), when I lived there traction control & ABS was unheard of, imagine with all that electronics on ice and in snow....

    A cold morning!
    I can tell you that Enduro Mode and Enduro ABS work very well.
    A pair of knoby tires and I could go anywhere!

    If we haven't been there, it's on the list.
    Kim and I were passing through the Zurich Airport late last week and found a full up KTM display booth with a bunch of models on display. Long story short, US deliveries (i.e. availability) are "scheduled" for August.

    hello,

    a friend just got his new 1190.
    he is now looking for the cruise control on the bike but can not find it????
    does it have electronic cruise control or not?

    thanks...
