I would change the oil at around there, but I'm also a tight arse. As for the valve checks... 😢 I have myself clocked at 6 minutes flat in checking my valves. You will never find an easier system. 1 quick release for the seat, one 8mm bolt for the tank, 4 8mm bolts and vola.Checking a KTM valve consists of removal of the tank, 2 bolts forthe seat, removal of the radiator, and a look though a 1 inch hole. The Husky is so easy, it's almost funny.
