FWIW my manual for a 2000 year model says change the oil every 3000 miles and check the valves at the same time. I do both every 1500 miles mostly because I rev mine hard in mainly high temps.

Check out advrider.com or ktmtalk.com. Both sites have lots of knowledgeable KTM owners.

From what I understand, the valves need adjustment early on in the motor's life, around 600 to 1200 miles. After that they are pretty stable and usually don't need adjustmemts but it is a good habit to check every 3000.

I don't like to let the oil go that long so I change every 1500 miles. I also only change one oil filter at a time, alternating between the two. That was a recomendation from my dealer to save a little cash.

BTW, you can get K&N or Hi Flo filters from many other dealers and not have to go to your KTM dealer.
