Quick question, If the bike (2015 SDR) is on the side stand, will I lose oil if I remove the clutch cover? Does the cover have a paper gasket or rubber seal?

You won't lose much with the bike on the sidestand.

but there will be some inside the cover, so be prepared to catch that.

a good tip is to run the wheels onto a plank of wood and then the bike will lean over a bit further on the stand - obviously be careful doing this!

the cover gasket is a rubber seal ring and can be reused if undamaged. I checked the clutch bolts on my RC8R last year and bought a new gasket just in case (about a fiver from Ktm) but didn't need it, the one in there was fine

I can't stand Abba. BeeGees were ok though.

I've got something like an Abba stand, just a bit more industrial. Haven't tried it on the KTM yet, but it looks like it'll work with the swingarm axle.

Turn the bars full lock.... Put a rag round the bar end, click it into gear, position it about 3 foot away from a wall and lean it over with the bars turned away from the wall..... I can normally get a bike to a 50 degree lean and not loose any oil...

You want the bike to be leaning over to the left, not vertical, or it will be a Tragedy
