Would any of you inmates with a KTM Adventure allow me to observe you perform an oil change Ive read a few threads on how to do one but would like to see how it's done. I know this is the is the price one pays for drinking the orange kool aid, a rather involved process to change the oil.

I take it you've visited the hall of fame and reviewed this thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=121458

I'll simply tell you that it ain't so....it's actually much easier and quicker depending on your abilities to swallow some anti-orange koolaid....

Walrus, you probably right once you get into it you figure it out and it isn't as bad as you imagined.

anyone know this 950 that is down at the BMW dealer right now?



Pretty sure I'm going to pull the trigger on it (would appreciate it if no one mowed my lawn on it).

But I'd love to know if anyone knows the bike or if there is known history. I'm always leery of trade ins... Supposedly he traded in 2 950s and a 1200 for a new 800GS.

It fits the bill perfectly, a relatively in expensive / beat up 950 that I'll only hammer some more...

thanks!

Never seen it but it doesn't look that bad. The skid plate & crash bars lack "patina" indicating no serious off road work. How does it run? Burn oil?

Hey Walrus. Great functional Halloween costume you have this year.
I assume the sheep get tricked and you get your treat.
