Are. All modern 4 strokes high maintenance

Buying the whole fam bikes, I'm looking at a kx450f, I did want the klx450r but more$$,I'm a little worried about all the maintenance and was wondering if I went for something like a ktm450 exc would the eng maintenance be any less or easier I.e valve clearance checks and adjustments?

A 450 isnt bad, just clean the filter after you ride it and change the oil about every 10hrs. They can go a couple hundred hours easily before they need anything if you dont abuse it.

No not really. MI would say stay on top of taking care of it and you'll be fine. Lots of 4 stroke myths out there. Just

Ok thanks guys ,I guess I'll just get the kx450f and hang on to the beast
