So I just had the bike at the dealer for diagnostics and first service. I just rode the bike for the first time since the service. The Gear Indicator Numbers are no longer there. It will show Neutral but that is it. Not showing what gear you're in while riding. Any ideas? I went through all settings menus and see nothing to activate or deactivate this function. Is this a dealer programming issue only?

A part of the first service is "Program shift shaft sensor". Dealer must have done something wrong. As advised above, back to dealer.

Seems this happens when they flash the ECU then reload the programs out of order. Just happened to me. It, unfortunately, was not a quick 10 minute fix. Not sure why, but they couldn't get the indicator to come back so have to call KTM tech support on Tuesday. Hope to update this after I get it back.

Hey HangryPete, wondering if you resolved this after talking to KTM - what was the outcome I'm experiencing the same issues

Yeah. I took it directly back and they were able to figure it out. Basically if they have to flash the ECM, and they reload it (and other software) out of order, it gets messed up. So if the tech who was working on your bike didn't follow the directions explicitly it gets messed up. Supposedly it doesn't do anything bad for the bike ... supposedly. Since then, I've never had this issue. Oil leaks, sure, but it's a Duke 790. Goes with the territory.

Thanks for the quick reply! Ya oil leak here too near the oil pan bolt, looks I'll have to visit the dealer to get it flashed.
Thank you for the info!

This happens when "Reset self adapting parameters" process is completed then the "gear sensor initialisation" and "quick shift" is not calibrated afterwards. All are done in the main ECU
Do you know how to calibrate with these two items? just happened on mine
I'm from hongkong , here's no one know how to fix a ktm🤣
