I will admit a bit of ignorance on the topic but what are the service intervals on a KTM 450 EXC? How much oil will it hold? I was always under the impression, maybe incorrectly, that the KTM's all required oil changes and valve checks far too frequently to be particularly useful as true "adventure" 450's.
