Wow, I'm reading everybody's responses to this, and my own experience was a little different. 2019 model.

The dealer lubed my chain and checked my bolts, and charged me $120 US (for an obligatory hour:D)...

but they updated the software on my cluster to 1V08 (which actually gave me the ability to set fuel cons as an 'mpg' value).

They didn't do anything else to the bike, because I requested that, and because I'd already changed the oil etc at 327 miles.

But...

The service light began flashing on the 35 mile trek to the dealer, at around 627 miles. They reset it, because I hadn't, but that low shift light flash rpm never changed to a new value on mine. When I got home later that night, I changed it myself.

Press SET
Scroll down to Preferences, Press SET
Scroll up to Shift Light, press SET
You will be greeted by the menu you see in the attached picture
Scroll to one of those three options, Press SET and adjust at will; pressing SET will lock-in whatever you adjusted.

Interesting they didn't need to check valve clearance on your first service. I'm not sure what this depends on, I've been reading conflicting reports about how some dealerships claim it's necessary and others say it isn't in the book.

Either some dealers are misinformed, or some markets receive different engine setups than other. Or both.

Did you just turn the shift light off when you did this?

This doesn't seem to make a difference on mine.

Yeah, I've shown that to my dealer and he responded with "weird, it's listed as needing a valve check in our online system nevertheless". Sure enough, one valve was tight, so I'm glad they checked.

No, I actually adjusted each setting.


Just for grins, what is the software version showing at the bottom of your "Service" page on your cluster?


Also, tell me again, what's your current mileage?

yeah, yurs is the same as mine.


you should be able to just scroll to FLASHES, press SET, be in the flashes menu, scroll to a new value (highlighted), press SET,


then back out with the return key (the loopy arrow),


then scroll to LIGHTS UP, press SET, be in the lights up menu, scroll to a new value (highlighted), press SET,


then back out again with the return key (the loopy arrow),

scroll to SHIFT LIGHT, press SET, and make sure the black dot is in the ON position,


then back out with the return key (the loopy arrow) and call it a day.


Are you actually (scrolling to/highlighting) a new value, then pressing SET, seeing the black dot land on the value you highlighted?


I'm at work, but I keep checking back.

Thanks again for replying. I'm at work as well. When I get home I will mess with it again and let you know how it goes.

Hey guys

Who sets the RPM to flash during the break in period, the dealer who puts the bike together (I'd doubt it) or KTM?

I'm curious because my RPM starts to flash at 6500RPM (104km/h) but the owner manual that came with my bike clearly says the maximum RPM during break in is 7500RPM. Should I respect the flashing or I can push it closer to 7500RPM? I'm still 1/2 way through freedom...

Thanks!
I did my break on 6500rpm and respected the flashing !!
I feel good about starting the right way !!

So what ever became of this? I have the exact same issue right now, freshly broken in, normal 10K rev limit, but tach is always KTM orange. Every video I have seen shows gray-transition-to-red.

The display colors have changed around, depending on the current/flashed software in the TFT display. Some ppl preferred (or wanted?) the colors that existed in previous software versions, but those are no longer available in the newest soft version.

Thanks D o’7. My tach has been orange all along when I lock it in Night mode. Never had a flashing tach shift warning light in the couple of times I nudged 8000 during break in. Got the service light bang-on 1000 km that the dealer reset at the service. Software 1v08, late ‘19 build.

Nothing really. I figured out that since my bike was so new that it has a different firmware version than the older TFT gauge cluster. I thought the red/orange tachometer was only supposed to be present until 621 miles. In the end, that's just the way the tachometer looks on my bike and the intended change of being able to adjust the shift light after 621 miles is working just fine. I never had a problem there, I just thought the tach was supposed to not be red/orange anymore after 621 miles.

Hope that helps.

Yes, thank you. I went through the whole mental process you describe. You confirmed this color is the new normal, so that's good. Next version of firmware: Preferences => Tach Color ?? ;)

I just hit my 600 mile service mark and still have the rpm warnings. Are the warnings just going to magically go away? Also, Im doing my own service change as my dealer told me that without the valve check, I'm no longer needed to bring the bike back to them for the “glorified” oil change, as he called it. How does my service light reset? Is it something i have to do after I change the oil?
Hey so I spoke with KTM and they told me that after the 620 mile mark you can have the dealer reset the RPM warning or you can do it your self in the settings of your bike under Shift light
