On the 2013 first models, dust was a BIG issue. KTM did not recognize there was a problem at first, so alot of bikes got dust in the motors.

So unless you know the guy, and you can take his word that he ran a Unifilter from day 1, I would stay clear of the 2013 models  :peepwall:

Mine is also a 2013. I think my Uni went in on around 2000km. I was the first oke to get the Filter. Had to import myself before RAD even got the Import rights on it.

I open the airbox up myself a few times, clean as a whistle  :thumleft:

So I got the all clear from swambo and going to view a 2013 1190 Adventure R tomorrow in Springs.

From this entire thread the biggest thing seems to be filter then from a mechanical point of view. Tyre's and so on I'm happy with, suppose until I have to buy them.
How much does a unifilter cost?

She's pretty ugly hey  >:D

haha I have been eyeing that exact bike on Gumtree as well. Tell us how it is?
A 2013 one with low mileage for R139k iirc. I loved the sticker kit, the best looking R I have seen advertised.

:-) Waiting for finance approval now and it can't come sooner.

They have a 950SE there too and blixem does it sound good but I'll kill myself on that. the 1190 sounds sweet with that acro pipe.

If it did not have the unifilter from day one you will have had some dirt in the motor... Just beware of that :patch:

Waiting for everything to be finalised and I'll post a pic of the 950 if it is still there.

Not sleeping very well but we're almost there.

Molten apologies for the hijack I only realised now that I should have started my own thread. Counting the hours till this afternoon - the machine is ready for pickup braaaap braaaaap

Ladies and Gents I introduce to you my baby. Thousand thoughts went through my head as my wife dove me to The Roost mostly about being super vigilant. Iíve lost friends where people suddenly turn in front of you but the smile on my face when I got home was priceless. I pray for many safe miles, smiles and enjoying the spirit of adventure with like-minded people does not matter what you ride but good jokes on brands will always be made.

I now understand why that back tyre wonít last long. What amazed me the most was when I had to stop at the toll gate and took forever to get my money (havenít figured out a hack yet but have a plan). There was a couple with small kids (about the age of mine) in front of me and the laaitie kept on drawing the attention of his dad pointing at me. The eyes, smile and awe is Iím sure what I felt like at that ageÖand again today. From 130 to 175 in seconds. Scary and exhilarating at the same time.

Iíve been on this site for some time now and thanks for all your support, now I can join in. I bought the bike to spend more time with my dad (also WD) riding the great South African and African vistas.
Hereís to making great friends and even better memories. .
