    A little update... just got my bike back from the shop now. The brake disc's was uneven when they measured it, and my new ones was dead on! So new disc's and pads is mounted, and it transformed the bike. I have not ridden it more than back and fourth in my garage, but the problem is solved (for now)
    The cruise control are mounted and the first thing i notice was the buttons was more responsive, the blinker was better and more "tight"
    Will try to post pictures and video on saturday

    Glad you got the issue fixed! Do you know if KTM corporate paid for it or was it your local dealer doing it as good will?

    The only thing i know today is that my local dealer applied for warranty on all the parts and ordered new parts for me without knowing the outcome of the warranty issue. So i will imagine the dealer takes the cost of this if KTM refuses? Not sure how that work, but i will have a talk with my mechanic to hear all the details when the issue is resolved.

    Gotcha, I'd love to know the result. It'd be interesting to see if they cover one item they consider to be wear and not another

    I know... i have never heard of a brake disc or even brakepads to wear out after just 10.000km I think that is a poor excuse to prevent a huge setback in their income.

    @tshansen
    Irrelevant question to the brakes issue:

    You mentioned in the video that TFT display was replaced due to gathered water.
    Any comment from your workshop? Is it a frequent problem? Any permanent solution? My concern is after warranty expires.

    Yes, the TFT display has alot of water in the corners, i read that this is a problem with alot of the early models. But they have fixed it with their new display. But if you get a new or old display under warranty is unknown. I know i guy in here who changed his and 2 days after it was fogging up inside. So get it changed as soon as possible. and ride it hot, spray it with water and see if you need a second new :p only advise i have.

    Picked the bike up today. Front rotors are warped. Dealer filed a warranty claim, waiting to hear back from KTM.

    If they cover it, great, what is a good replacement. Don't want the OEM

    If they are willing to cover it then the OEM KTM rotors will be your only option. If you want something else the Braking or Galfer both make rotors that fit.

    Thanks I'll check their web sites. BMW allowed me to use merchandise credit ( cost of the part) and buy what I wanted. Installation was free/covered as a warranty repair.

    The original ones are not bad, just make sure they measure it before mounting!
