Hi all,
Cleaned the 1090R today and discovered a missing bolt on the fuel pump, the 3 remaining were slack and also the fuel tap bolts.
Replaced said missing bolt and loctited them all in.
Bit rubbish this situation which doesn’t fill me with much confidence when bolts come loose and fall off.
Enjoying the bike, covered only 3k miles but it’s good fun however I’ll probably replace it with a Japanese bike when the time comes, never had issues like this with a modern Jap bike.

I'm going over mine in the morning, all the nuts and bolts.
I've also got some plastics that rattle in the front and I'm putting a stop to that.

I hear you, you have to wonder why the dealer hands you a delivery inspection sheet with ton's of items checked when they clearly don't do it.
KTM and the dealers have to step up there game. I've had one Bultaco, three Yamaha's, three Kawasaki's and two Honda's that have never seen a first service by the dealer and never had a failure.
