so my opinion, as a car mechanic, oil filter will become clogged,because the engine has poor lubricating
and going to get a cam shaft damage same like my did.That is why I recommend replacing the water pump
every 20 to 30 000 km, do not wait for the engine damage.Replace the water pump is no problem, and costs no more than 50-60 usd

Iīve heard about that problem. KTM didnīt built a drain hole (as almost al bikes have) for the coolant, in case of a seal failure. Do you see a possibility to make a drain subsequently?

Hi
problem with ktm is that the coolant mixes with the oil and I did not notice anything color several other staged in oil, but the way fule up coolant lit by drive.
only needs to be focused on the coolant leak.
coolant mixes with oil seals oil filter and a bad lubrication of motor
in some cases, if you are long from the workshop must take off the oil filter on the basic of low oil pressure
but it is not possible to create a drainage hole in the cap of the water pump,
only have control over the bike

hi
not completely agree with you.You sure change the meaning when viewing the next image of this project as finished product.





This bike is incredibly good to drive, the son'm sure many will agree with me
but all products have someone who is not perfect

I've been following your build. Turned out even better than I thought.

Looks great. Good job. Would love to see it in person.
