    After 3 GS's and I just bought the 1190 to go with my 300EXC - excellent tool.
    Just wondering if anyone has any tips on the electronics - specifically

    1.Shift light - the rev limits that I set seem to be cleared each time I turn the bike off.
    2. Do you know anyway of setting defaults for instance MTC - making it default to off ( it resets to on every time the bike is turned off)
    3. And for the longer dirt trips it would be good to be able to get the ABS to default to Off-Road

    Cheers

    Hi there!

    1. When I change my shift lights, they stay at my settings until I change them, unaffected by ignition. Sounds fishy!
    2. To get the MTC to stay OFF or OFFROAD, you have to buy the Bad Fuel Dongle, which will let you drive with low octane fuel as well as save your ABS/MTC settings when torning off the bike.
    3. Same as (2).

    Have fun! I sure do! :clap

    I've been told the shift light will only work to your own settings after the 1st service...... not sure if that is so, as I still need to do my 1st service

    It has been discussed elsewhere, but on my bike, the DRL setting also resets when the ignition is turned off - very annoying!

    I was thinking the same; it's time consuming everytime struggling with the buttons to go back to Offroad ABS mode. Maybe Offroad ABS would be default, with the Offroad MTC.

    On my R at 110 ks indicated my GPS reads 100 ks. WTF?

    I'll inquire at the 1000 k service if the dealer app can do speedo tuning.

    EDIT: Not sure on the error for the T model, but that guy who took a video at 270 ks was probably only doing 245ks

    Has anyone got a wiring diagram yet? I'd be keen on changing the source for the acc socket to only power when the key is on.

    I see the switched ACC2 connectors in the front and rear of the bike are labelled 1A max :norton

    I wonder if that is true, as there is no 1A fuse on the bike :deal except if it has an electronic auto resetting fuse.....

    Looking at the diagram you sent, that is feed directly from the MCU pin 8. It is quite straight forward electronics to current limit or "electronically" fuse. Perhaps an email to the KTM peeps at head office to explain?

    Oh and thanks heaps for the diagram.:clap I'll insert a relay and control it off Acc2, which sounds like it is right next to the socket.

    It might be nothing to with the electronics but a week ago I drop the bike 0 mph and the engine kills it self . This is very good safety feature ;) the bike is ok just a little scratch on the crash bar :) and the bag . Bike fall to the left .. .

    Try dropping it to the right again, an even number of drops will reset the tipover sensor

    I was looking at the (draft) wiring diagram and on page 9 (pin out 7 of the ECU) is a solenoid labeled "exhaust air valve". Does anyone know what this is?

    Exhaust air valve limits the exhaust throughput to maximize performance of the engine at different revs.

    A question to you electronic guys:

    I´m looking for the speedo signal (or better: the wire that carries it).
    I need it for connecting an electronic chain oiler on my Adv 1190 R.

    Wiring diagram or location and color of cable would be greatly appreciated.

    I´ve already tried to connect to the ABS-Sensor cables, but the signal seems to be not compatible.

    Thanks in advance!
