    2800 something Km
    day before yesterday a nice tour with friends

    [​IMG]

    used it to go to work the same evening and had a great ride home at seven in the morning
    the bike sleeps ouside under a shelter but that's it so I plugged the charger in
    today, wanting to go for a ride so I wouldn't have to deal with all the shit and fake friend's wishes for the new year... nothing
    crancks over but doesn't fire
    smells like gasoline
    as if the engine was an old carb version completely drowned
    shit is all you can do is push a button so it ain't even my fault ...
    as I tried to start it the motor-management/fuel injection sign came on

    happy new year...:huh

    probably something of the kind
    won't even try to fix it or to get it started myself
    call the assistance and have it delivered at the dealer's
    warranty... :deal

    Unfortunately that's a "known error" at low temparatures.
    You could try to switch all powered electr. accessories off before start (incl. heated grips) and try again. Battery doesn't provide enough power / bike's using too much for starting.

    I guess that's what the "Adventure" name stands for.

    Same here in Ostend, Belgium! My 1190A will be towed in about 30 minutes to the dealer... My dealer states that the latest software update will fix this difficult cold start (in my case NO start) issue...

    Same symptoms: cranks, gasoline smell, nothing...

    my 990 will do do the same thing in the winter. will crank but no fire.
    mine does this because I need to cange the oil and put a thinner viscosity oil... I know its like comparing apples and oranges but you never know.

    They sure are awesome looking bikes. This is the kind of thing that would keep me from trading in my S10 in on one though. Way too many teething issues.
    If they could get the reliability down I'd get one in a heartbeat.
    Maybe in a year or two....
    Hope you get it fixed soon and have better luck with yours. :freaky

    Warrant in Bousval
    when I bought my first (owned 3) 950 back in 2004 KTM belgium sent me to him and asked me to keep going there because I kinda ask a lot from the bike and he's a real good mechanic
    raced african Dakars on KTM's and came in top 20 being a private rider:eek1

    gotta say he always kept my 950 in good nick despite the abuse
    we used them for fast assistance in 4x4 trophy's through europe
    so knobbly tires and trashing it through the romanian forest to keep the cars moving:wink:
