That is if you race the bike and want it in top condition.

My old wr400f manual said to replace piston/rings...etc. every 400 miles. It was never done after over 8000 miles.

Just ride it.

At 105 hours, KTM is calling for the following:

Change Connecting Rod, Bearing and Crank Pin
Change the Piston

There are other "checks", but these stood out to me.

At 41 hours (1100 miles) of riding, I feel like I'm just starting to break in the bike. I can't see how the above items need to be change at such an early stage in the bike's life......

Any comments?
