Everyone talks that a KTM is maintenance intensive. I picked up a 06 525XC with a 169 hours on it. The maintenance record, sheet of paper, was given with it. I now have 249 hours on it and looking at the paper there has only been a lot of oil changes. The PO replaced the steering stem bearings, heim joint, front wheel bearings, chain sprockets, and lubed the swing arm bushing at 168hrs. Right now I need to have seals put in the rear shock and I will replace oil and seals in the fork. I change the oil every 15-20 hours and clean the air filter. I adjusted the valves recently. The bike runs great and I consider the work performed on it routine and dont feel that it is maintenance intensive. I hope it keeps on ticking. Do you feel oil changes every 10-20 hours is maintenance intensive. I guess I like the orange kool aid.
