Hours on KTM EXC400

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am new to the orange world of KTM - having been a Yamaha/Honda man all my life.

I am just about to buy a 2007 KTM 400, and wondered what would be an 'acceptable' number of hours for this bike.

Also, what would be expected in a service ? ie: oil/filters at x?x hours ... or cam chain/valves at x?x hours?

Thanks in advance,

Silky

I have around 500 hours on an 04 with 1 set of replacement valves and 2 cam chains. I've beat this thing to death too with oil changes sometimes well over 1000 miles on big Colorado trips. It's also been completely under water a few times with the crankcase filled with water and one trip I rode it over 50 miles using ATF and 2 stoke oil as engine oil. I've now bored it out to a 453 which is even more goodness.🤣

This has been one of the best bikes I've ever owned and is still my choice over an 07 525 or my GasGas 300 for high mountain Colorado trips. It's been utterly reliable. 👍
