Headlight cluster mounting bracket breaking off - As per confusingly discussed here  :ricky: - http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=235921.0
So after almost a month very glad to have the 1090R back and as noted so far all good seems the mechies did a good job stripping and re-assembling my bike.
Complete frame replacement was done with a new frame being manufactured in Austria and re-stamped with the correct frame no and shipped back here.
Bike was completely stripped apart and new frame installed with also new steering bearings.

I had this as well, my frame replaced under warranty but factory fitted upper crash bars were "blamed" for the problem. Likely story.

Was this done under warranty? Or did you foot the bill?

Were any of your replacement frames strengthened?
What prevents it from just happening again?

And JK, did they really just charge you R1k for all 4 of the spark plugs?

I have no personal knowledge of these spark plugs, but read on a european forum that they can actually easily last for 60k km?
What do the old ones look like? 'consumed'?

Also heard they last very long...

Remember KTM forgot to replace mine, I intend to do them and valve clearances at around 50k km or 45k km. Will give feedback and pics of the plugs then.



Those prices on the sparkplugs are very good JK, or on two of them it is, the other two was more 'normal' and readily available.

Hi Guys so just hit 32000km's and had some maintenance work to be done just before getting here.
Replaced the back tyre at 31860km and that means i got 6600km's with the new Mitas E07 Plus. As noted a bit of a disappointment as i got around 12000km's with the previous Mitas EO7. Fitted a Motoz Tractionator GS this time, so lets see how this tyre goes. Bike tyre warehouse came in @ R2400 fitted for this tyre, but got it for R2200 fitted from RAD.  :thumleft:

Sprocket and chain
The 1st set then lasted 32000km's. The chain angle on this bike has worried me from the start as the angle was very tight and i could see that there was gonna be a lotta chain slide wear. So for this but also i thought the bike felt sluggish as the gears went up i decided to up the back sprocket from 42 to 45. And must say so far i am not sorry.  >:D Nice lekker punch now when u open the throttle. Will have to see if the new replaced chain slide now lasts longer.  8)

yap, that sprocket change is a must on these bikes. 6th gear is useless without it

Mate of mine was offered 90k for his 2016 1090 as a trade in for a 790 recently. Less than 10k on the clock and neat, so he's keeping it, unsurprisingly.
