I managed to get this info from a KTM tech customer rep from Ohio recently.

One of the customer service advantages of being a original owner of a KTM Adventure is any KTM shop, KTM service rep or customer service rep can check the history of your bike, explain any service updates and status reports on your bike based on their database.

Since my bike was an '04 S they are researching to make sure I don't have the noisier '05 version of torque limiter.

Whatever info you need you can readit in here and educate all these KTM employed clueless guys.

Thanks guys! I read Vinney's detailed hotel repair. That might be the reason he is on the third rebuild!
