Suggestion - shop day at your place

To gain valuable shop knowledge and field repair skills and meet other KTM riders in your area why don't you try a shop day at your place.

Get a few cases of beers and pizzas and invite seasoned KTM Adventure owners to your place who are willing to show you the most basic repairs and things like tire tube removal and install (needed for adventure rides in the bush).

Important maintenance/repairs:
Oil change
Brake pad changes and fluid flush.
Uni air filter install.
Fuel pump removal and install or install Dr Bean kit.
Side stand relocation bracket.
Remove old clutch slave and install new one.
Water pump remove and install.

Now it a good time since riding is a bit slower at this time of year.
And KTM 950/990 owners are the best guys to be around.
