Have you taken up your issues with KTM direct in Austria or wherever the head honcho sits these days???They may be open to giving you some assistance, because the US franchises seem to be expectedly clueless!!

Scroll down on this link to get Austrian Corporate;

Here is a "local" KTM contact;http://www.ktm.com/us/contact.html
I think you may have misread my comments. It is about $1000 bucks to get the fuel filters changed once, but routine maintenance on this bike is astronomical, a total of $4000 for oil changes and valve sets in 6 months. I am not kidding. It is outrageous, not to metion the $65/night I am spending on a hotel room while i wait. $4000, soon to be $5000 on maintenace on this bike since June. To borrow the comments of a friend who has ridden worldwide for 7 years, major issue free, on his BMW, $4000 will buy a lot of Corona. he is Mazatlan today. I was supposed to be with him.

Please read my RR about my attempts to get satisfaction from KTM
