The heads, cams, crank, con rods, idler shaft, are different. The lighter, stronger parts were installed, thus the new maintenance requirements.

Actually, I just posted a question about this since I've picked up a 2008 with only 700 miles on it and wonder if it needs the valves checked?

What y'all think?

- how many pre 2009 bikes still haven't had a 600 mile service with valve check included?.

According to your manual...

...yes it does...

but I would ask your local dealer to either say whether the longer initial interval can be made retroactive for the 2008 or not, or ask him to check with KTMUSA on that. I would guess they would say stick with the manual but...

So, just out of curiosity I gave the KTM dealership a call to find out how much the 12,000 mile service would be...they quoted me "Oh around $1600. But you get all new seals and filters." Whoa!!! That's a down payment on a new bike.

Well since the valves and spark plugs should have been done at 9400 mi at 12000+ miles would be a oil change and a filter check
That leaves about $1500 for seals? what kind of seals, Harbor seals, Leopard seals, baby Fur seals? Call some where else or better yet do it yourself or find a helpful inmate here to show you how. A bike with 12k miles should have had valves checked/adjusted, spark plugs replaced, brake fluid replaced, and new fuel filters even though they aren't in the maintenance schedule. Even if it needed all of the above it would be no where near $1600, stay away from dealers who don't have any idea what they are talking about.
