Congratulations Ravendark!

Its no good passively accepting these things and you did everyone a favor by getting KTM to fix this problem. I'd really be interested to hear your experiences with the new forks and hope you post an update for us

Front feels more planted now, it is smoother and does not clunk anymore. Chattering while braking is gone as well. It just works now as it should...

Great news.
One thing that surprised me about the suspension fix was how it made "Comfort Mode" useful. When I first got my bike and tried out the suspension settings, comfort mode was was the worst of all of them for rattling and clunking and really unpleasant to use. Its actually pretty good now and that's how I ride it if I'm exploring really rough roads and looking at the scenery.

I hadn't noticed more clunking on comfort mode to be honest, but I didn't use it much also...
