KTM Cape Town give me great service. What do you need to be done to your bike?

The bike needs a good general service and addition to that I am told by staunch KTM rider that at around 30 000km its time to replace cam bearings, cables, wheel bearings and seals, grease everything with copperslip, chaim & sprocket.

I also want to replace all rubber pipes and clamps.

I know I should probably do most of this myself but time is a problem.

Speedi your guys are doing things right, you have spent a lot of time and energy fixing a problem that you inherited. There has been a massive changes for the better at KTM CT It is just that more people need to learn this.

Yes...start with your local dealer. They want you as a customer & know what they are doing. If you not happy you will look around anyway. Ask for Wilddog discount.....

Dunno....some of us were talking earlier & cannot remember when last someone said something bad about KTMCT. If they are not on this forum or others then they might still hold "old thoughts".....but then they would surely have to go into the shop for stuff & see the changes anyway!
If they dont like the way KTMCT is being run right now then they wont be happy with any brand! :)
