Recommended Posts

I recently brought an exc and would hope to get some advise from u guys as to what are some of the preventive maintance i need to do and when to do?As i intend to ride it for long trail i was told to change to a bigger coolant becos KTM heats up easily.As i'm new i would be thankful to u guys out there for your advise.Thanks. 🙂

Since it's used it's probably a good idea to replace all fluids & test every bolt for looseness. Don't tighten every bolt just make sure they're not loose.

Change oil & filters

Radiator fluid

fork oil

brake fluid

If it has hydraulic clutch that too.

Pull the valve cover and check to see if the decompressor stop bolt might be loose. KTM has a different bolt and nut that doesn't come loose or a cam gear with a molded in stop.

Also check the cam bearings and make sure they are not worn.

As far as cooling the KTM is very good. Some of us that ride tight technical trails in hot weather add a cooling fan but it is rarely neccesary.

I'm on my 3rd 400exc and they have all been virtually bulletproof. Excellent machines.

If you haven't already join http://www.ktmtalk.com/ There is lots of info over there and little BS. 🙂
