Hi
I got the black one also had akro fitted and ergo seat . Already had a problem with oil leak dealer has had a go at fixing it with a seal behind front sprocket but it’s still leaking due first service in 50 miles so they gonna have another look ... anyone else had this ? If so what was the problem ?
Will let you know how I go

hi
the most common "leak" near the front sprocket is not a leak but grease from the chain building up behind the sprocket cover and when the engine gets hot "oil" runs down the back LH corners near the side stand mount.
I remove cover and clean this out every couple of months to minimise "oil" of LH corner of engine

Leak

No this is definitely an oil leak already checked the chain and so did dealer they were sure it was the seal , I have heard of other People with a problem
Other than that love the bike ... oh the snatchy or lumpy throttle not to good but can live with that as lots of bikes with euro 4 emisions are the same

Yeah i had that leak.. the shop replaced the sump gasket.

Now the oil filter housing is leaking!.. A bit of liquid gasket sealer will Finnish the job.

Have all found it’s hard to get hold of a lot of the power parts ie screen , 12v charger I’ve broken the ball end off my brake lever and dealer says it I’ll be January when I get a new one ??

you have found the Achilles' heel of KTM 790 ownership, KTM are complete pants when it comes to releasing PP for new bikes.

However I can perhaps help you
Screen we are all awaiting for this
12V charger buy the 12V kit for a Duke 125 and fit that instead or these type of things are sold on ebay
As I have upgraded my levers I do have an original brake lever in perfect condition if interested
