I can tell you that if I had hit my previous bikes - 950/990 in a similar way that I hit the 1190 the other day, the smiley would most probably have been there, and the same goes for my GS800, but I must admit, I never rode with such hard tyres before, maybe because now the TPMS complainsall the time below 2.3/4 bar
I have had smileys on all my bikes so far with the 21" wheels and I was hoping that the 19"would hold up as good as that of the GS 19" ers. Lets hope, but in the mean time I'll keep those tyres well pumped.  :thumleft:

So as a guy who doesn't own an 1190, but wants one badly...: Is this a notable issue with the new KTM or just a repeatable anomaly?

Rims are to soft for aggressive off-road riding - but RAD has already ordered replacement front rim kits to fit narrower harder DID rims

Had a chat to Rad - front kit is about R4k (spokes, spoke nipples and narrower DID rim (1.85 I think) they use your old hub

Also got them to give me rough idea of complete front wheel (DID rim) (including bake discs and everything else required is about R12 500 have to order some bits and bobs.

they confirmed that the 990 rear wheel (DID Rim) fits the 1190 (have to change sprockets and brake discs (with some other bits and bobs) Complete rear wheel - so that you can just swop around) is about R14500 

So possible but an expensive exercise - have to sleep over it - but might still get a set with Mitas E09 front and rear - so on road tyres during the week and off-road tyres over the weekend - and still cheaper than a second bike.  I will also add quick axle pullers so should be a 20min job

Ad trueing, lacing and actual rubber and you look at R30k

I commute about 500km a week so I would like to keep the original wheels for that - but would really prefer something more aggressive for the weekend - so yes R30k is outch - but don't see me doing Namibia/Moz with the standard tyres and rims and still cheaper than keeping the 690 in the garage as well ???

Jap true

But its just amazing how quickly the numbers add up. R30k you can use to buy a car or a nice plastic.  :lol8: I know its not what you need or want and this is not directed at you at all. I am just a bit shocked at the prices that people charge without flinching. Thats 20% of the bikes price :imaposer: :imaposer:

I have bent the rear rim and got a smiley up front... :-[

I think the 1190 just doesnt want agressive off pavement riding...

I am not worried about the look of the smiley. My steering isn't so leke now with the smiley.

Need to get wheel balance I suppose. The after moering it with a rubber hammer I am going to see
If it will not lose air. If that does not work the I am going to throw some slime in
6k for a new front rim from Ktm is ridiculous

Just find out before you do that if the slime will affect the tire pressure monitoring system.

I am thinking of running my wheels with nitrogen to help keep the heat build up a bit lower on long distance rides.
