That’s the only down side to almost all 450’s, the oil capacity. Most only hold a quart or less, KTM included. However KTM hardparts does make basically an oversize stator cover that bring it up to almost two quarts.
I do a 10min valve check every third oil change, never needed adjustment yet. On my EXC450 you need to watch the I.N side more than the E.X side. The nice thing about the RFS motor is no shim and bucket, it’s a simple screw.
It also has a WR transmission where my Husky had a close ratio transmission. It’s a world of difference on the street that no amount of regearing can compensate for.
Itís easier to apologize then it is to ask permission.
