Shell Oil?


Kinda interesting, in North America the sticker would say to use Motorex Oil, this one says to use Shell Ultra 4....

No, it depends on the year of manufacture.
On my 2004 640 Supermoto was also a Motorex sticker...

I fixed the photo links, enjoy !

Possibly KTM distributors in each country have their own "arrangements" with various oil makes. Highest bidder?

The rebuild is like...almost done Iīve not ripped apart everything, maybe in the next year i will do so ^^
I changed the tank and front to those from my 98 Adventure and got new side tanks (which donīt fit very well ) and rear plastic...
New petrol lines, battery, cleaned all up fine, the engine got out for a helicoil at the cam chain tensioner,
new Touratech Roadbook (the MD was broken :( ), Touratech IMO R50 from my Adventure, indicators and wiring...
A friend actually makes me a DB-Killer for the bike, so that i can make the german TÜV and get a license plate...

The rear excel rim is now at the motorcycle shop to get another wheel hub spoked in...
Furthermore Iīm going to wrap the exhaust pipes in some textile band, for protecting my boots from melting
Iīm also looking for a (new?) high rallye seat or a normal one in good condition...anyone has to offer one ?
