    yeah, i got nailed by ktm recently when my regular shop declined to change out a tyre for me. old mate showed me a rim band he'd unwittingly buggered and shuddered talking about the tpms thingy.

    ktm must see you coming i reckon. $60 for a tyre swap.? fark me. not like he even had to take the wheel off the bike even. i took the wheel and tyre in on the back of the ute.

    $1000 for the no mar changer divided by $60 is not even 17 tyres :hmmmmmfor $60 i'll prolly get the levers out and do it myself next time.

    It's makes you wonder how these clowns change tyres with tubes in them.
    Do they tell you, "well if we pinch your tube we're not taking responsibility"

    Have had a good run with 1190 fuel filter, changed it at 40,000k, just because I thought it might be time. No hint of problems, filter was dark - impurities (rust) in petrol?
    The Americans seem to have more fuel pump problems than we do, check the 690 threads! Perhaps their fuel is dirtier/ blended / crappier?

    I went with the Barrett muffler, it sounds sweet idling, haven't had a chance to ride it yet. Totally different to the 950 with Akras. Also went with Andystrapz panniers and frames. Oh and a B&B bashplate.

    I noticed a few posts on here re panniers and pipes. On the advice of 1CB I went for the Dalby racks, which were the same as I had on the trusty old 640. If you are running soft panniers, they are perfect; they sit nice and narrow and forward. And with a pipe like my Wings (awesome sound!) the Andyz bags work perfect. I use an old pair of bags that are the same size both sides.

    Trying to show how the bags sit up and away from the pipe:

    They worked great for me on the 1190
    I did space the left side out by 20 mm though.
    Was just too close to the plastics and grab rail to get fingers and straps through.

    Has anyone in Australia had there 1290SA cruse control fixed by KTM so it dose not take 5 attempts and 1 kilometer to settle back to the set speed after accelerating to parse. I am at a complete loss to understand how they can make such a dismal CC on a very expensive bike and believe it is except able.

    So the time has come to wire in the GPS on the 1090, any easily found live wires under all those panels ?

    On the left side, in the box under the blank plug for the cigarette lighter, you will find two power sources, acc1/acc2 one is keyed power the other is live.
    Best option is to remove the body work and tank for a tidy wire install and ease of access.
    I wired my GPS into the 1amp keyed power, did the same on my 1190 with no problems.

    Hey all,
    I have my mates new 1090 at home with only a couple of hundred km, it's only gone out 3 times since the 18th of March when his wife surprised him for his birthday.
    6 weeks a go he had an accident at home, fell off a ladder and broke some ribs, shoulder blade and cracked his skull and had brain internal bleeding and swelling so he is not in a good way.
    Be careful you lot, don't climb ladders they are dangerous!

    Anyway, I tried to start it a couple of times so that it just doesn't sit there, it won't start cranks over no problems and it has fuel but won't start.

    Any ideas why it won't fire up? Thanks

    have you tried jumpering it to the car.

    the battery may turn it over with not enough left for a decent spark?

    Actually spins better than my 690, also once per fortnight I plug the charger on it for a day to keep it topped up.

    WHen you turn the ignition on do you hear buzzing and whirring of throttle bodies calibrating for a few seconds and the needle on the dash tops out and goes back to zero?
    Can you scroll through the items on the left and see if theres any errors?

    Hope your friend recovers quickly.
    Might be stating the obvious but the manual for my 1190R says do not open the throttle as this cuts off the fuel during startup, just wondered if you were giving it a bit of throttle when winding it over?
