I just returned from a 1.000 km trip to take my first enduro course. It was great fun. Everything new to me. Tons of things to practice now.

I had the same on my first (also call "the number 1"!) 950 2004. Changed under warranty...the only problem was that I was somewhere close to Syria rather than my KTM garage in Rome!!!

Ciao

Trip to a nearby OHV park. Wife surprisingly really liked it. Pretty incredible how this thing seems to get better as the terrain becomes worse.

What helmet is that? I've never seen that cutout before.

I have over 88K km, happened first time after the shock service, but the leak was slow. after second service it started to get worse.
Probably caused by some loctite on the oring groove that needs to be cleaned before reassembling the reservoir cap. Cleaned it by myself this time, plus added some black silicon, just in case

Just finished my first oil change on my first ever KTM (990 Baja), now I see what everyone is talking about

I put on the drainvalve kit with hose, amsoil 20/50. Also installed a blackdog bash plate, was going to do the kick stand relocation but ran out of steam, will do it next week.

Learned a lot about the layout, and how hard that damn left gas tank is to remove/install!

Now I'm having a Makers 46

I love that place!

I've wanted to take my 990 up there, but always chicken out and go with the 450X. You've inspired me to give it a go.

changed oil+filters on 1190

owners manual for 1190 says 3.6 liters is what to put in.

3.6liters gets the sightglass at around 1/2 way

seems like you gotta put more like 4 liters to get sightglass reading closer to the top

what gives?
