    Default 2015 KTM 1190R Key Switch problem

    I'm looking for advice on a key switch problem. I discovered my 1190R had a dead battery after sitting for 6 weeks or so. I charged the battery, and found that the key switch is not shutting the bike off. Even with the key out of the ignition, the bike starts and all electronics stay on.
    I've taken the tank and headlight off (no small task) but haven't found any pinched/broken wires or loose connections. All fuses are good.
    The service manual doesn't really cover replacement or removal of the key switch itself. I'm assuming thats a dealer item?
    Any ideas?

    Dealer can perform a reset on the dash CPU and engine control ECU. This may fix your problem. Dealer here charges $50.

    Problem is fixed thanks to local dealer. The Key switch/immobilizer unit was bad, not sure how that happened.
    KTM kicked in the parts but I had to pay the labor. All keys had to be replaced.

    Good to hear that KTM stepped up.
