    I really like your bike and your work as a whole. Well done.


    I´ve heard about that problem. KTM didn´t built a drain hole (as almost al bikes have) for the coolant, in case of a seal failure. Do you see a possibility to make a drain subsequently?

    Hi
    problem with ktm is that the coolant mixes with the oil and I did not notice anything color several other staged in oil, but the way fule up coolant lit by drive.
    only needs to be focused on the coolant leak.
    coolant mixes with oil seals oil filter and a bad lubrication of motor
    in some cases, if you are long from the workshop must take off the oil filter on the basic of low oil pressure
    but it is not possible to create a drainage hole in the cap of the water pump,
    only have control over the bike

    Hello,

    I wonder what KTM had in mind when constructed the motor. That´s an absolute bad thing.

    hi
    not completely agree with you.You sure change the meaning when viewing the next image of this project as finished product.





    <!-- / message -->This bike is incredibly good to drive, the son'm sure many will agree with me
    but all products have someone who is not perfect

    You are right. Let´s enjoy those great bikes and don´t think about construction failures.
    We don´t live forever.

    Have a good time and ride carefully.
