5 years ago I rode across Russia from Vladavostok to Latvia and then through Europe. You can see my KTM in the pictures. I had good luck and only one failure in Mongolia(a head gasket).

I met many Russian people and motorcyclists.

Who can not love the ISH.

I think you will grease the wheel bearings, steering head bearings and swing arm bolt and put on a new chain and sprockets.

I used this chain oiler.

I made it around the world on one chain but I needed two countershaft sprockets. Maybe you will take an extra countershaft sprocket with you.

Keep having fun!!!!
