I need to get a extension before is do service because removing/refit without will be a bitch


Oil service and such?
I saw a pic on facebook where the guy cut a little hole in the bashplate to allow easy access to the filters. I am considering the same. Will post pics if I ever get to it.
On the other hand...I should not skip on taking the bashplate off every now and again as the bolts tend to rust stuck.

I removed that cover that holds the hooter, just pulled it down and access was okay. Used the one torques bit throughout actually. Grand total of 5 bolts to remove

thanks Armpump for the video.
My tyre is unfortunately back on with a tube. Tyre fitment center could not sort it out. Seems like the tyre rubs against that rubber gasket and pulls it clear of its bead. But I was not expecting success so have peace wit the heavy duty tube in. Rear is still tubeless.

In other news. My stearing damper was very loose on its bracket and I thought it shouldnt be. So while the bike was at my fav stealership I had them "repair" it and also fit the 20W oil. Well, they charged me R1600, did not fit the thicker oil nor fix the loose bracket. So I went about replacing the oil myself. Buuuuut I struggled to get the seal out and ended up hitting it wiht a hammer to get it out. Finished up but found the pivot ball thingy came out. Put the ball in the fridge and heated up the other part and it came bac together only to separate again on the trip.

So I got a Hyperpro for a good price and installed it today! Cant wait to test it.

With everything that I read in this thread, I really don't know if I will be able to trust your "favourite stealership"  They are closest to me and should be the most convenient dealer that I should take my bike to...  But really...
Time wait for no man

I had a productive weekend!

Lets start with the Good!

I fitted a Rotweiler intake.
I wasn't really planning to fit one, rather happy with the Unifilter setup. But I was planning to fit some heat reflection under the tank and did have a hotish bum sometimes but nothing to troublesome. But then I managed to get the Rotweiler for cheap and grabbed it. Simpler is better.

The Bad...
The Rotweiler intake does not have an inlet for the SAS system. So the decision was made for me to drop the SAS system. Like I said...simpler is better. But it seems like it wont be to easy to source a blank-off kit in South Africa. I don't have time to import. Know any one making these? (How long does it take to order from Rotweiler?)

The UGLY
Oh man, I have not been looking forward to stripping the front end to see what's going on there. And it was exactly what I feared. The mounts of the head unit was off. I think any 1190 that does a little gravel has an 80% chance of having the same issue. Piss poor design.
So finding the broken mounts gave me mixed feelings, I was happy to find the issue so it can get properly sorted. The loose head unit have been stealing a lot of my confidence in the bike, impacting hugely on my speed. But on the other hand I knew instantly its not going to be a good clean fix. In the end I am very sad at taking a welder to my frame, but it is what it is. It also means there is no way now of selling the bike on the forum again.

BTW, a friend had the same issue and pointed it out to KTM, they wanted to replace the frame. HOW WILL THAT HELP? He traded the bike back to them.

Anyhow, we did a Sonday jobby of it. My father is a boilermaker, so it may not be pretty but it wont break again.
And I still have to refit all the panels, not looking forward to that. This was one of the bigger stripdowns I have done to date.

Y turn the 12mm to 6mm?? Not very clever KTM!!
Martin has a big windscreen and a GPS mounted, the roads around here is bad. Loads of "zinkplaat".
Every thing mounted to that 2 mounts are plastic, in a crash the plastic would give way.

This is a bad design, according to me.

Had a discussion on Facebook on the topic and got a lot of examples/feedback.
But now you guys know...you will see a lot :)




I need the SAS blanking plates, no one local? Please? I really don't want to go put the standard air box back in. Seems like it takes a 28k ohm resistor but I would rather just get a proper kit.

Just spoke to RAD. (actually forgot to call them)
Seems like the KTM kit did not come with the electrical plug until recently. He will call me back, just need to verify with the mechanics if I will be stuck with an annoying engine error or cant ride at all. Then I will live with it till I can source something proper.

Het actually RAD gebel voor Bundu hulle genoem het. Gaan rof hier by werk, maar soos ek verstaan lyk die KTM jobbies nie mooi nie.

Junior gebel. Ek wag net gou vir KTM se kwotasie dan order ek een van die twee.

Where did you get those pipe blanks? I was also planning on something similar but could not figure out what will fit there.
You mentioned a 300ohm resistor. That's correct? Dude on facebook used a 28k ohm which is why I am verifying?

Thanks for the youtube clip. will watch it tonight. This caught me unprepared.
