Good Lawd...all three versions just sitting there together in your dealer's showroom?! You have more restraint than I! :eek1
Go for it! I'm sure you'll get a pretty good discount if you take the 3!
It only hurts for a second, then you twist the throttle
and all the pain goes away
Soo will I have a problem with the canbus system?
Been done on the BMWs. Can't see why not. Maybe a Katoom owner can clarify specifically.
A bit of history..... I've owned and enjoyed GSA's in the past and have really enjoyed riding them (left when we started having problems). Went back to cruisers... having trouble enjoying a ride as much as I did. Then tried a Super T..... sorry, not really impressed! Went back to cruisers, and well here I go again. Is the maint on the new 1190 going to be as extensive as it was on the 950's (sorry, only reference I have) ie: pulling fuel cells off just to change the oil??? Not really a mech.. can change oil, pull a tire, replace a battery and so on. Is the new KTM going to be more than I can handle in the issue of keeping the bike up? Granted, the bike is new here in the states and probably not many opinions yet established. Just thought I'd ask. Really envy you folks riding the 1190 Adv and would love to get back on something that is comfortable and handles well.
Thanks for your time, and have a grand day.
what type of aux lights do you prefer?
what brands/ options do you have installed or will install ?
I'm thinking Rigid Industries 4-LED Floods ($300ish)
No words have ever been truer.
I specifically asked about changing the oil and it is very simple. All the drain plug and oil filter access is very straight forward. The air filter will require removing the tank. The dealer said that it is not hard. A service here in the Charlotte NC area costs $75 plus parts. I'm guessing $130 range. This also includes a chain adjustment among other items.
I've tried both and after installing the Cyclops Optimus round LED's I love the 10 degree lights myself. They are a very high quality light, decent price, and I believe one of the brightest longest beam out there in that size of light.
They really shoot the beams out there and there seems to be enough light to the sides to see deer in the ditch too.

All sounds good except for the air filter. Why would a manufacturer design a replacement item w/o easy access? If you're gonna ride this bike in the dirt you better be keeping up with your AF. Who wants to remove the fuel tank every time? MAJOR minus (for me) here.
Great thanks for the info
will definitely check them out
I don't think it would be that hard. I'm planning on installing a K&N filter in and I will shoot a video. If you can repair a flat or adjust your chain you will be fine.
Had anyone done this with the stock chain? Will I have the length I need ? I know I can flip the blocks as well.
Yeah...would be interested in seeing a vid. Thanks.
It's not that I don't know how or couldn't it's just that I am old and lazy and don't want to do more than I have to for what I consider routine maintenance.
Did first oil change after the first ride of 150 miles (to seat the rings) using the recommended Motorex full SYN 10w50 and filter from Cycle Gear (total $81.00). Filter quite dirty (no pic) and lots of stuff in the two screens. You only have to remove the skid-plate (I'll keep it on till I can get a proper replacement). Complete job easily done in 10 minutes or less. Filter is behind the round cover (between the two screens) in first picture. It's a little bit of a problem that you have to drain the rear screen onto a hot pipe. You have to add the second filling (the portion needed beyond 3L after first running the motor to distribute the oil) very slowly. Otherwise it will overflow.
Has 15000K (9300 miles) service interval. I probably won't run mine that long.
I'm not sure KTM has a 44 T rear sprocket (SuperSprox probably does), but 16/42 is a final drive of 2.624 versus 2.706 that you get with 17/44. Not sure you can notice that difference. Changing the front is easier than the rear as a bonus.
