Thumb Wallabies.

Make sure to go to Adventure Bay and take a look at the albino Wallabies they got there. They are funny :)

check for wear

When I replaced head gaskets on mine, at around 56,000 kms, I also did valve lapping and checked cylinders and pistons for wear. I only replaced the piston rings.

US is cheaper. Get an idea of the difference, checking out www.ktm-versand.de and compare prices to your average US dealer.

No worries

A hard ridden bike with 90.000 km's on the clock that still only uses 0.3 l per 1000 kms is nothing to worry about at all. Good, actually.

If it is brand new then it's covered by warranty. Stop worrying and call the dealer, it should be his worry.
