Hi i am new to the forum and this is my first post

I have just purchased a standard 54 reg KTM LC4 640 with 5000 miles on the clock .It has only had 1 service and i believe that the next one is due at 6000 .I am going to change the oil filters and oil .I would also like to make the bike a little quicker without great expense

Can anyone recommend

1, A good engine oil
2, A good gearbox oil
3, Some simple mod's

Thanks in advance

Craig

engine and gearbox oil are the same, i use 10/40 fully synth, change as often as you can afford, filters every 2nd oil change, much cheaper than engine rebuild, as for mods, do a search on here there are many, how deep are your pockets
full akro, air box mod/full K&N filter and 660 can are a good start to make it go a little faster

I think i may have to leave the valves for the 6000 service and let the workshop do those !! Are they easy to do ?
