Odo - 51900 Kms

Its been 4 years of a very satisfied ownership. On my bike's 4th birthday which is today, we have completed 51900 kms. The ride has been so far so good. Bike is still running on stock clutch, and engine oil level is not dropping down unusually. So no engine related works too. There is a slight noise from exhaust, some thing is cut inside the muffler. The underbelly exhaust costs 10k approximately. It might need a replacement soon.

Cleaned the chain, washed the bike, lubed the chain and adjusted the chain slack. The bike without any decals looks very odd in white colour. Need to get new decals soon.

390s look the best with stock graphics.

BTW I found an online seller who has many KTM parts in stock including the new Adventure's shock assembly. He had an exhaust in stock. He sells some of them at discounted rates as well. Ordered some parts and got them delivered in 5 days. My Spare Market

It's quite nice that even though you have faced too many issues with the parts availability, you indeed are happy with the bike and that shows your optismism in life...
Ha ha. Thanks. But I have faced parts availability problem only once. Mostly they do have everything in stock.

Its been 2500 Kms since last service. So decided to get the air filter dusted and break pads cleaned(sanded). Need to check on the coolant and oil level in the coming week.

Plenty of life left in the rear pads.

Front pads also look good to go for few thousand more kilometres.
