I agree the 4500 mile interval is way too aggressive for fully synthetic oil, especially when that moterex stuff costs $70 a jug. I change around 6000 miles.

Mcmann I know that this oil isn't the recommended KTM stuff, but then again who only uses Scorpions or TKC80s because the manual says so? :)

I'm 5000 miles into a trip with about another 2000 to go. I was thinking to change the oil, but decided not to in the end. The engine isn't working too hard( trying to keep the fuel economy down).

Thanks for the bit of info and analysis. Now I'm definitely not going to change it until back home.

So based on this thread, with many hours of hot Central American travel now has anyone fitted an oil cooler to their bigs girls?

Maya sits at 5 bars anything below 60 km/r or 40 m/hr so I was curiously wondering if anyone has fitted an oil cooler?
