Here is a new one! Got home from a ride, stopped the bike, put it in Neutral, lifted it onto the centre stand, and turned the key (and removed it from the ignition) to stop the engine, guess what , NOTHING HAPPENED! bike continued to idle, could rev it and ride it with no key in the ignition. stopped it with the kill switch , but fuel pump continued running and lights stayed on, disconnected the battery to shut it down.

Nothing I did worked to fix it, tried spare key etc. called KTM cape town and they sent a tow truck, waiting for a diagnosis. anyone else experience this or heard of this before?

I had mine up on a wheelstand oiling the chain and noted that with it in gear running, it won't turn off. Was your tire up and spinning? I think this is to prevent your engine from shutting off when the key gets pinched under the moronic fork clamp that runs over the ignition switch. Safety. Maybe yours was misdetecting whether the wheel was in motion?

I have heard of this before but I'm not sure it was specifically a 1090 but it was a KTM. Keep us updated please.

Mine was in neutral and I flipped the key off and it kept running. It did so for several seconds before shutting off. There is almost always a delay from when I flip the key off to when the bike shuts off, but it's usually half a second or less. I have a Super Duke, as well as 2 other bikes currently that don't do that. It may be specific to this beast.

I have been experiencing the same issue.

Two weeks ago I installed a Rottweiler stage 6 kit. After running the bike a few times just to warm it up I started the bike to move it in my barn and tried shutting it off say 30 seconds after starting it. It wouldn’t shut off. Figured this had to do with the 02 sensor for the Autotuning system needing to sample the exhaust for the first 30 seconds before changing the fuel mapping. After 60 or more seconds the bike would shut off. Did this maybe 4-5 times. Been riding the bike now and have logged about 2-300 miles 5-6 rides. Got home after an hour ride and the bike wouldn’t shut off. Nothing worked ended up pulling the fuse for the ignition.

Anyone figured out the issue? Possibly a bad ignition switch?

Are you only using the ignition (key) to try and turn it off, or the kill switch + ignition both to off?


Yikes!


Congrats on stage 6!

update on thread

Hey Guys, just to update on the original post, factory could not resolve the issue remotely, when logged into the bike on the diagnostics, apparently the 5? onboard computers were not communicating with each other, (what I was told by workshop), they offered to instal a complete used computer system from a older bike that was beyond economical repair (crashed) then send the faulty unit back to Austria for them to repair. but I opted to trade it in on a new 1090, I would never trust that bike again on a long trip into the back country. and for ultimate resale value,
the computer is apparently unique to each Vin number.
(Not sure if everything I was told is fact, 5 computers, unique programming, can any one verify?)

itching to get on the road after lockdown is over!!!
