I have a 2019 790 Duke. It's great to drive, but after just 1.060 km, I had a failure in the clutch.
I had to call for a towing car.

The clutch didn't release any more.

At the workshop a couple of weeks later, it was discovered that the central clutch basket nut had loosened.....Bad, Bad, KTM!

I've noticed that in General - KTM seem to go for lower torque values on joins that would often be the case. Mainly because they use a smaller bolt size. It will affect weight for example.

This is not to say they are wrong - but it does mean it's easier for things to loosen.
