KTM true to their word then! Really, Ready To Race!
Thanks for the info. I'll use some mineral oil, but it'll be a while before I know the results, as we'll have snow and ice on the ground until the end of April!
How should I ride it with the mineral oil inside - plenty of acceleration and engine breaking, or thrash it?
I do thrash hell out of my bike - it's only used abroad while on holiday. Never any commuting, touring or pootling, I promise.
