Call Chris over at OnAnyMoto. 269-6606 if he can't do what you need, he'll know who can.

Good Luck.

What time and where's the meet up?

(and, my phone is actually working now instead of sending all my calls to an automated voice mail)

KTMtalk.com is the definitive source for ANYTHING KTM. Here is a link for adjusting and inspecting LC4 valves, if in fact that is what you are looking to do. It isn't that difficult, just take your time.
