  1. 1050 Oil Temperature Reading

    Adventure
    Hi, Ive recently bought a 1050 after riding a Yamaha fz6 every day for the last 7 years. Before that I had a KTM superduke 990, so it is nice to be returning to a twin, although not entirely practical for my commuting purposes. On the menu there is a reading for the oil temperature. I have...

  4. Transmission Oil Clarification Please

    Off-Road / Enduro
    Having recently got myself a KTM300 (2006) I'd like to ensure I have understood some info correctly... The owners manual states the transmission oil should be "light Gear oil" with an example. I have seen here and elsewhere differing advice on what to use and alternatives. So here is the...

  6. oil cooler for KTM EXC?

    Off-Road / Enduro
    Has anyone fitted a Ht oil cooler on their ktm? They seem really popular in the US perhaps because of the need for longer trail riding. But no one seems interested in the UK. Just wondering if they're actually worth getting? 08 EXC-R 450

  9. EXC Oil

    Off-Road / Enduro
    I've just picked up a new 2010 450 EXC and the reccomended oil is Motorex 10W/50 Full Synthetic oil. I still have 8 litres of 10W/40 Shell Advance VSX4 that I've used in my '03 450 EXC for the last 3,000 odd miles and wondered if I'd be ok to carry on using this. It's supposed to be pretty good...
