KTM 690 Service Interval
« on: December 09, 2015, 01:25:05 pm »
I bought my bike end of May.  It's close to 10 000 km already.  Do I really need to change the plugs and check valve clearance?  Oil I changed on 1000 km, then on 4 800 km and know on 10 000 km.

The plug should last a long time.  I would really suggest that you check the valves often.

Yes check the valves. Checked my valves at 13000km and the intake was at 0.01 my feeler gauges would not fit at all. Now if it was service me at 10000km that's only 3000km. It's not hard to do your self and the feeler gauges are cheap from Midas. Check out a YouTube video before hand and you good to go.

Mine was serviced on 1, 6 and 12k by agents. Wheel bearings had play on 6k and valves were out of spec on 12k. 90% of the mileage was offroad and it did get a bit of dust in
