Been an on/off long time lurker and thought it about time I registered.
Bought my orange 790 Duke mid 2018 and now have around 12,000 kms relatively trouble free kms, it's about my 40th bike and 2nd KTM
Unfortunately I have had a few niggles with the bike, aside from poor delivery problems the main problem has been the usual oil weep on the left side of the sump and a small weep from the counter shaft seal behind the front sprocket. Haven't done anything about the sump leak and have found that it is slowly going away by itself as the engine wears in, almost gone now.
Have a Puig screen (ugly), SW-Motech pillion seat rack with Givi base fitted (good), H&B rear rack, tank bag, bar risers, heavier bar ends and Kawasaki Z300 mirrors - I'm happy 馃榿
