Title: 1090R - Questions
Post by: Lear300 on August 15, 2018, 01:53:05 pm
So my life with the 1090R is going well......

Mechanically the bike is stock, i have fitted heated grips, spot light, bash plate will be fitted this week hopefully, GPS is on, and I have an Akro.

Bike s fantastic, absolutely love it. Now, with the questions..... based on what I have been reading and hearing.....

1 - Bad Fuel dongle - What is it? What does it do? Is it a "must have"?
2 - Uni filter / DNA+Gasket - What is the difference? Which is preferable? Also, when i bought the bike, I was advised that KTM sorted out the air filter issues and this is not needed, yet I am getting lots of advise saying its still needed?
3 -  Any other farkels that is recommended or considered "must haves"?

I love my 1090R!
To answer your questions:
1. Bad fuel dongle - keeps your traction control settings. If you turn off the bike without the dongle it will reset the ride mode to road, traction control and abs to on. If you do lots of off road or like to hoon a bit this is a pain in the backside. Dongle allows you to keep in in sport with tc off.
2. I've got the DNA - I do lots of gravel and off road. Gives me peace of mind.
3. A big budget for back tyres  :ricky:

Loving mine as well, apart from the fact that it is at KTM for a 4th visit with issues... :peepwall:

The dongle in my opinion is a must. Hate having to change settings every time I start the bike or hit dirt.
Will also be looking at aftermarket filter options.
I've fitted adv footpegs from Fastway - it has transformed the way I can steer the bike with my body weight. Might be get caught on rocks etc in tech stuff though.
Bash plate if you're going to be using it for more than just a little gravel travel.
Proper hand guards

Get yourself a MotoZ rear tyre for improved milage. My TKC 80 lasted 1800km on the rear.

For the Airbox and filter story.

Every KTM dealer will tell you "Nah they fixed that boet, no problems".  They're all fulla shit. Don't listen to them.   

KTM changed the way the air filter clamps into the airbox in 2015. That was like 25% of the problem.   The ACTUAL problem was that the lid of the airbox is susceptible to warping and not sealing correctly so dusty air from outside gets sucked into the "clean" side of the box, bypassing the filter completely.

Sticking a DNA filter in a stock box does nothing to stop that.
Sticking any amount of prefilter's on the intake runners to the airbox will not help that either.


The UNI filter kit comes with an oiled foam gasket that fits around the lid/box seal and will stop that.  I think that gasket is the most important  thing to have.  Filter after that is basically just a preference.

1.Bad fuel dongle definitely a must have. not only does it keep your rider settings as is it also help when you are at a dodgy fuel station somewhere in the bundus you can set the bike to run on 80 octane and it sets the bikes ecu accordingly.
2. Get yourself a gasket to seal your airbox lid like roadhawg said. Im running a dna with a lid seal and do lots of gravel. Never have i had dust come in.
3.Definitely a centre stand for when you have to do tyre repairs next to the road. A radiator guard is also a must if you travel in groups on gravel roads. Had a stone flung up from bike in front of me and if it was not for the radiator guard i would be stranded.

Hope this helps. Enjoy the Katoom 8)

The 1090 is a solid bike. The only thing I want to reiterate is the tyre budget. Buy 5 at a time. All tyres fitted to these things turn to marshmallow within 5 minutes. I've done 5000km, and I need to buy my 3rd rear tyre this week.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the harder Heidenaus and other tyres that promise mileage. I'd rather replace tyres more often and have grip than save a few pennies on tyres and have the rear overtake me around a corner. These things have lots of power, which is useless if you can't transfer it to the road without worrying whether the tyre is going to do what it's meant to do.

The UNIFilter gasket you can get from RAD Moto.  They don't have stock of the full kit, only the gasket.  I believe you can get the full UNI kit on Ebay.

RAD might also have the DNA filter. I think it's listed as a powerparts filter so they should have it in that case.

Unifilter, not DNA
IIRC the fuel dongle is R1400 at KTM. Ask around on the facebook groups for a second hand one if you want to save a few bucks, worked for me.

Big camel toe sidestand enlarger thingamabob is also essential. I broke mine and still need to replace it. Its a schlep without it now.

hand guards suck, but I would suggest use the stock ones till they break before replacing.

Okay, bought the uni-filter and gasket. now to fit it. will D.I.Y that one.

Do yo guys install and keep the snorkel filters in, or what's the M.O with those?

Also, as for  the oiling of this filter, how often and what oil do you use? I see it comes as pre-oiled in the bag, but no real instructions on that? Also, what do you use to clean it with ?

The little snorkel socks ive kept in and works good catching those big pesky bugs. Seems to catch some dust too. The cleaning of the filter i find it depends on what roads you ride. Mostly tar not so often but gravel i clean mine after every big trip so at least once a month twice in some cases. I use warm water and not much solvent base cleaners. I leave it in hot water and one can see the dirt and oil come loose and floats to the top. i do this a couple of times. BUt here is K&N air filter cleaner made for cleaning airfilters. Hope it helps.
 
As i have the dna fitted and not the uni i cant say what oil to use. I use the normal K&N aerosol Airfilter oil and works well.

Okay, so the uni-filter is in. :thumleft: bit if a mission to get it in place and then the airbox seal is in a league of its own. I am sure they could have done something different with the design for that thing,  :deal:

Any way, its in.

So the bike now has.....

Spot lights
GPS
Heated grips
bash plate
radiator guard
power point
uni-filter
camel toe

and only 6000km on clock in almost a year. Need to ride more

So.....

No aftermarket levers available for 1090R?????

I have been to KTM, I have tired Dustriders etc......the levers for the 1190R do not fit the 1090R. No one can tell when aftermarket levers will be available for these bikes.

Bit of a bummer as I broke my brake lever and a new KTM one R1490.00  :deal: bit steep to replace the 2cm I broke off.....so I guess I will keep the broken one

That broken one should be an upgrade already. Just make the edges smooth and you don't need to spend money on some fancy 2 levers from a shop.

That's really strange. Maybe it's to do with the ABS system on the 1190/1290 bikes?    I find it strange that they would change something like that if they didn't have to, saves money sharing parts.

Maybe it is the same as another KTM variant?

As far as I know, I have the same ABS setup as the 1190.

Also, have checked with both RAD and FAST KTM, 1090 is basically stand-alone when it comes to levers :deal:

Thinking of getting back in and so far I like the 1090 more than 1290 and 790ís.

KTM has awesome deals on the 1090ís at the moment ,after doing some research I found out they stopping production of the 1090ís.

FORK SAKES ouens!

Am I gonna shoot myself in the foot by buying a 1090?

I will have to speak to the lanies at KTM and see what they say about parts being available for 1090ís

Sounds like the only issues the guys have been having was with airbox and you have to fit some sort of dongle to jippo the mapping that keeps resetting after you switch bike off.

Hopefully October/November I should have the bucks for deposit.

The 790 is filling the slot between 690 and 1290? Some people reckon the 1090 didnít sell well in certain markets because big bike buyers want all the technology and power of the 1290. Ala BMW alles of niks.

Hi Jethro i dont know what kind of riding u do and prefer but if i was you i would 1st take a 790R for a spin before i make up my mind. The 1090 is a great bike and i would never have thought to get rid of it until i rode the 790R. I definitely will be looking to get a 790R next time around that there is enough stock available. The problem u will have is that there is currently great deals to be had on the 1090R new and 2nd hand and paying almost R200000 for a 790 versus say R160000 for a low mileage 1090R with lots of extras is gonna be a tough decision. But i will be passing the 1090R onto the oldest son and i will be looking to take possession of the NEW technology(Rally mode with TC) and enjoying some discount in weight, longer fuel range, ease of service with the air filter under the seat and new screen and headlight  etc etc.  >:D :thumleft:

Coming from two 950ís before my 1090 it feels very gutless low dow..
The 1090 feels like a Two stroke at 6500 all hell breaks loose

The bike has had n software update but I am not sure it feels like the throttle doesnít open up all the way down low..

Any one with the sam experience?

I have not ridden the 950 so will not be able to comment. Yes, the bike really goes after 6000rpm. The amount of power available from rideable rpm is deceptive - judging the amount of times the nanny kicks in to bring balance to the force. What the 1090 does do is to be unrideable under 3000 rpm. BoosterPlug made a huge difference on my 1090 Adv R. It has transformed it from a temperamental teen to an agreeable young man. Throttle is smooth, I don't have to check the rev counter for when it falls under 3000 rpm, I can ride it in 5th at 60kmh and 6th at 80kmh and it is smooth. It has taken away most of the chain snap at low rpm. Can ride from 2000rpm till 4th. Can stay in sport mode all the time, even off road. Software update after a recent service made it even better, but the huge change was after installing the BoosterPlug which adds 6% fuel in open loop - whenever there is a change in RPM or TPS.

Have you ridden it with TC switched off? TC cuts the power a lot to keep the front wheel on the ground and the rear from spinning out. It might create the impression that he throttle doesn't open up completely.
On gravel with TC off I had a complaint from a rider behind me that the bike kicked up dust and rocks for half a minute until I reached cruising speed and eased up on the throttle...

Add 3 teeth to rear sprocket. Cheap and effective.

Technical riding is a lot better, 6th gear isnt useless anymore and the useless high top speed is still useless high with reasonable offroad tyres.
