The dealership convinced me the 'looseness' of my head unit was loose front panels, but its not and I still need to adress it. The whole head unit has a lot of play. Riding it seems like even the front indicators is loose.
I tried to take a video but its not very clear. I need some advice, what can it be? A quick fix hopefully?

I will start a new thread for this as well, to get more eyes on it.

This is going to sound seriously stupid, but... on my Honda Tornado almost everything is fitted with rubber spacers over a sort of steel tube that extends from a steel washer. Over time the rubber spacers lost some of its rubberness and I had to put some washers/spacers to get the rubber to be under compression again. I had to do this for the license plate holder, oil cooler and petrol tank.

Het jy dalk n tipe van n skematiese uitleg van die head unit gedeelte? Dan kan n man dalk daar iets sien.

It's a combination of the 10000000000000000000000000000000  nuts/bolts /fasteners we have on these bikes of ours

Nou het julle my totaal en al verloor  :o

But from the first pic I can make out that 15 and 19 are rubber grommits/mounts. Is this also the bolts used for mounting the head unit to the bike?

 :lol8:

there is 4 bolts (no:20) that went loose on my first offroad outing. I repaced them with normal bolts with a head that can be tightened with a 8 spanner. Never had problems again. I do check them every 4 months or so just to make sure!
These bolts are situated on boths sides of the ignition cover.

Bolts of number 20 is in place on my bike. I haven't tried making them even tighter so will do that still. I checked around as much I can without stripping and did not see anything amiss, very disconcerting. So I will do my ride this weekend, hopefully it gets back in one piece.

On my service received, I have send the owner an email stating why I am unhappy two days ago, no answer as yet. I had a hard time to make a half-assed temp fix on my crashbars yesterday so I was not happy at all. The chain is also very loose, it was not checked at all.
Currently I have paid for the replacement rim which is still due, I am very keen to just say I want my money back. If the owner gives me lip then I will definitely.

@armpump I was quoted and already paid before it was received:

RIM 2.5X21"     R3855
EWBUILD RIM  R 700
Tyre fitment + Balance   R100
GASKET RUBBER 2.5X21"  R500
RIM Band 21     R255

that is in total R5410 just a little less than a complete DID dirtstar would have cost and I am not to sure it will be strong enough. But at least I keep tubeless...

onwards with the tale of my bike!

So we had a hard day's riding this Saturday at the Kalahari Bike Challenge. Did some medium fast gravel and then some very bad roads. It was about 40km of red roads but I would say its rather a red tinted orange route.
I really enjoyed the 1190 again, still very happy with my suspension upgrade although I can see more and more scratches inside the rear wheel arch but I would guess this is more due to the wrong tyre size I have fitted.

My head unit survived, which brings me back to thinking it worn mountings and not something broken or lost. While standing I don't see it move so much so that helped me not to criticize my bike the whole ride!

Question: Unstable at speed, do I add or remove rear rebound? I have made it better by changing some suspension settings previously but would like it dialled in a little more.

And then...
you know how one can be mad at others, but I can be absolutely livid at myself when I screw up..... I was livid....
Loading my bike on the trailer I saw another bracket got lost. This has me swearing at KTM again, 300km gravel and more parts fall of the bike because they screwed up, but now I am more mad at myself because I should have tightened them after the first one fell off. SO I continue on autopilot and load and tighten the bike....
20km later I notice something off.... check second picture. Stupid me still fastened the bike using the crashbars! Now I have a bent crashbar and the weak bracket I fitted on the other mounting point with huge effort broke. And all this is so unnecessary.

Molten please for the love of all things orange and beautiful close this thread - It’s actually becoming a joke and equally upsetting :'( This reads like a bike that was a write-off and was repaired and now all the gremlins are coming out :lol8:

The shit never stops with you and this bike!

Hehe Renrew, Its not that bad. Loads of these kinds of stuff pops up with my friends on GS's and on 990's so I am not to worried. If you use something this hard constant maintenance will be necessary. I was just thinking of friends that had to remove their swingarm and q20 the chain-setting-bolt as it was stuck and near to stripped. I believe just about all of the weak points on my bike have been addressed. I would literally not swop for a 1090 or 1290 now. I still love my bike.

my bike vs 1290
1290 is to expensive to use

my bike vs 1090
its a downgrade.

my bike vs SE
SE is old plus I am married to this one now, I wont be able to recover much of the money invested so need to use the money first.

Please make no mistake, I have a lot of opinions, but on my own stuff and myself I have the most stringent critique (dink ek verkrag engels hier....) so please try to read deeper into the thread than just taking the complaints at face value. (also, I bought this bike from Manic and now there has been some issues, none of this have been due to his ownership and I would gladly buy from him again. Its a pity he was not using the bike harder offroad actually, that would have saved me money!)
Oh, side note, my 1190 has not left me stranded next to the road as yet, my GS has (shaft failure)
So its still got that going for it which is nice.... :)

Don’t get me wrong, I envy your attitude! No jokes.

Agree with everything you’re saying except the SE part, a clean one will serve your purposes 90% better than the 1190R. To me my 990R makes the 1190R feel like a donkey, and my SE makes the 990R feel like the HMS Bism. Old has nothing to do with it unless you’re talking about a 19foertsek africa twin that isn’t really competitive in the modern age.

But yeah, doing this stuff with big bikes is going to bring out big issues with the best of bikes!

And yes, you have to go with the 1190 and make the money sweat bud!

You’ve gone full-retard with it, now you need to see it through ;)

How do you perceive the 1190 reliability and “toughness” compared to the oil tanker softroader GS?

Offroad they can’t compete, but interested in how tough they are...
