450 EXC Valve Adjustment-How often

Recommended Posts

How often should I take a look at my valves. I bought the bike new in Jan of 2005 and inspected the valves in Sept of 2005. I made some minor adjustments to one of the intakes.

What do you recommend? Once a year? Twice a year. I ride the bike failrly often (who would'nt, a KTM and living on the San Rafael Swell?).

Thanks for your thoughts.

You should check the valves at a minimum of every 30 hours running time.

KTM says at 3 hours then every 15 hours

I say 3, set the intakes at .006" instead of .005" as we know intakes get tighter, but do not vary from the .005" on the exhuast then do them at more like every 25 hours. complete instructions are pinned int he FEQ section at the top of the page
