That failure on KTM is just bad. I don't like ktms very much because they have always problems with something but they are pricey. :/
Yes, the guy was Matty, the owner of the XR 400 with the shuttered piston. Given the fact that I was with Matt at the time of his engine failure, some people must have confused the two of us and the two different technical problems (even if mine occurred many days later after we separated).
Indeed it's more than a case of bad luck. Imagine how I felt when I saw the cracks, and later that welder butchering a palliative fix.

The Mongolian tea was more like fresh milk from the countryside in Romania, and the sweet cheese is not too bad also.
