    Not for us ;)
    Law is very clear : "insurance automatically voided if vehicle doesn't respect conformity" and here, conformity is 100 HP.
    However, i never hear about this situation for someone at the moment.


    Yes...and no
    My dealer explained to me that he will not make up this type of clause in the futur because his lawyer said him it's not a good idea.
    I don't understood exactly why...


    So, i choose my way, the "full power" one and i'll see...but i always cross my fingers :D

    A friend of mine had to pull a GSXR1100 engine out of his frame and replace it with a 750 before the tow truck arrived because of that!

    :lol3

    Let's just hope you never have to deal with that issue.

    Ride safe!

    :ricky

    I hope too ! :D
    But for me (and if i can walk) it will be more easy, no motor to change, i'll just have to remove ECU from the bike.
    If insurance guys looking for it, i'll tell them "The what ? E.C.U ? What is this fucking thing you talking about ?" :D

    lol simple.. if you have a accident, put it in rain mode, therefore you are at 100hp and conform ;)

    Hey Guys,
    I got my bike from Bolton motorcycles - Kyneton VIC. they had heaps of stuff already in stock 'apparently' they are the biggest ktm dealer in australia.

    They offered the works with mine.. so worth a shot if theres something specific you need..

    How is the oil change on this beast? Same as the 990- minus the tank removal, I hope? How is it in general with regard to maintenance? I loved RIDING my 990, but didn't enjoy working on it very much. Considering the 1190 vs the 2014 1200 GSA... wondering how you folks are finding the normal maintenance routines-

    A bit off topic but just curious.

    The first service is on 1000km , while the second (oil change) on 15.000km.

    Really, does anyone trust this number? I mean would you keep the oil for that long in the engine ?

    The official dealer here says that the second service is done on 7.500km for oil change.

    What do you think ?

    I think oil should be changed by 7500 km wouldn't hurt to put new oil I wonder if you need to change the filter as well?

    :huh it's 1k 15k 30k Go to another dealer...

    First service is also an oil change btw

    Oil change is a pisscake compared to the 950/990, 5 bolts including the oiltap and oilfilter bolts.

    I think KTM said 15000, so it will be 15000 ;)
    In fact, it's a little more "vicious" because it's 15000 OR after one year.
    If like me you don't do 15000 in a year... ;)

    At 15,000 you´ll have added so much oil that probably you already changed it
    So, go from 1K to 30K directly

    Found something:

    So there is a 7500 service, but it's the airfilter recall.

    Is that a letter from KTM, or the importer, or the dealer, or...?

    KTM 1190 ADVENTURE R RIDERS ... BREATHE DEEPLY!
    As awesome as the new KTM 1190 Adventure R is, one area where it needs a little fine-tuning is in the air filtration department, as the stock paper filter element and air box have been shown to have trouble coping with Australia's outback dust conditions.
    So Aussie brand UniFilter has leapt to the fore and created a very serious fix for the 1190's air box, which is now available from UniFilter dealers everywhere - check it out:
    UniFilter, through Ficeda Accessories, is pleased to release its latest air filtering solution to the Australian market. Unifilter Australia has combined its 37 years of air filter design and manufacturing expertise as well as its new state of the art CNC manufacturing processes to develop the ultimate air filter for the KTM 1190 Adventure/R.
    The kit includes everything you could hope for to provide the
    best protection when exploring everywhere Australia and the world has to offer!
    The kit includes: replacement two-stage panel filter, 2 x intake snorkel pre-cleaners and 1 x soft foam air box seal.
    RRP is $69.95 and the part # AU1429KIT
    It's available from all good motorcycle stores right now!
