I didn't notice anything wrong right up until the failure. No unusual noise at all. According to the San Antonio folks, it had "less than a quart of oil", so maybe there was just barely enough to keep it operating.

I also ride with earplugs and music, but not so loud that I wouldn't hear/feel something wrong with the engine. Also, my first ride to the gas station every morning is without earplugs.

Still not sure about the warranty, but it looks good. Unfortunately most of the KTM dealers neglected to add service information to the central database, but I'm hounding them and they're responding.
San Francisco to Panama and back... eventually?
