Did you clean and set the overthruster volumn control valve to 2.5 turns out?

No?

Yer' doomed.

Overthruster schematic:


2.5 turns out returns the following performance:

It's how Rolls Royce, when asked, would describe power output. A euphemism for "plenty 'O power... don't ask again you twit".

If it was the thingamajig attached to the whatchamacallit, just under the gizmo... then YES! I took care of it!

Cry Do I really need the copper tube?

I'm having trouble getting hold of some copper tube to make the burping tool. Can I use just the clear plastic hose pushed through the stopper instead? Does anyone know if there will tears if I try this??

Colin,

On an '03 and later bike, with the large hole in the top of the breastpipe, just sticking the KTM provided hose in the hole to add the 600 mL will work fine....

You can use what ever is practical and logical for you. The "burp tool" is just something I made up in an effort to eliminate any mess, rather than anything manditory.
The mess that is usually made without a burp tool is fairly minor... if your quick about shuting the bike off at the first sign of oil.

Cheers, thanks fellahs.

I appreciate where you are coming from regards the burp tool; just didn't want to ignore having the solid tube if there was a good reason for it.

btw thanks for all the tech how-to's. It's easier to learn from someone else's experience! My dealer did the 5000km service and removed the radiators, replaced the coolant etc because he didn't know any better - which of course, I had to pay for.

This 10,000km service will be my first on the KTM. Should be simple with your documents.

Woo hoo!... nothing like paying for someone else's education is there. Hell, you may have even bought him some new tools too!

Thanks to everyone involved in making this tech thread. Did my first oil change today and made a mess, but it wasn't too bad. I'll be making a special burp tool for my '02 before the next time.

F_ _king wrong oil!

First off, Creepers instructions were great... but I got so caught up in following them and building a burp tool, that I over looked the fact that the oil that a friend picked up for me at the dealer was 10w 40 non synthetic until I had it in the bike.

I'm leaving on a trip tomorrow and it took so long for me to change that I was hoping that you guys will tell me it's no sweat change it to synthetic when you get back...

It's my first oil change on a 2006 with 800km on it and I put usually put synthetic in all my vehicles... should I dump it before I go?

Na... go for your ride, change it when you get back. It's not that big a deal one time around.
