On the subject of running KTM changes. A good friend of mine used to do a lot of Desert and Enduro racing 80s - 90s. Some times he would have 2 of the same model bike. One from the very beginning of the season and one from late season. Castings would change, hubs, handle bars, all sorts of stuff. I think it's a long standing tradition of continuous improvement.

Thanks for the very complete post!
The "Burp Tool" would have been included in the tool kit when new. It consists of a fitting to insert in an oil bottle cap and a length of hose. It's very simple, but it works.
