Yes, Jaci all 2015 customers were informed to report to KTM factory truck prior to scrutineering to have the problem fixed. But it may not have been fully addressed ?
Something to keep an eye on by stage 6 or 7 maybe.

Iritrack mount on 2015
From: Vladimir Kusnier mechanic of Chavo

Talked to a friend from Astrium about that Iritrack mount on 2015 yesterday. Quite interesting to hear another side of the story.
Seems like there hasn't been a problem with accessing the buttons, but he claimed that during Oil Lybia every single factory rider had to change for a new unit every evening. There are literally no silentblocks damping inside the cf mount and the vibrations are killing the blue box within one stage. He said they had similar problem on other bikes where the people tried to create mount by sliding it sideway into the alu tower. During Oil Lybia KTM payed for the damages but here it's Astrium's responsibility and they don't even have enough units for everyday change on 35 new 2015s out there.
In his words : 4 factory riders is possible to maintain but not all the lot that showed up this year with that system.

Here's a cool interview with Dave Despain on the other end of the job.

Here's the best coverage on day 2 of the ISDE. Even if you don't understand espanol, you gotta' love the monster truck voiceover in the intro.
