Wissam, All the luck in the world on your ride. Discounted parts??? They should be giving you a bike and a boat load of parts to just "test" on your epic ride.

Best of luck my fellow KTM rider.

3000 mile trip

If you are using quality synthetic oils and OEM KTM filters I see nothing wrong with going the entire trip without a change.
