KTM servicing

Postby prking » Wed Jan 14, 2015 10:45 pm

I'm after some advice for getting my Freeride serviced. I'm in Surrey, I know TriCounties as I' have been there for tyres and stuff before. There's also the little place near Long Ditton, Motorite. Need someone to look at clutch as its dragging a bit. Maybe because the bike sits in the garage for too long. That sounds like an excuse to ride it more. So any thoughts on where I should take it?

PM Luke B on here. He does a lot of work for TRF techno incompetents (like me). He knows his onions (and sausages by all accounts).

If Luke is busy and cant do it, then Motorites are good. They are in 137 Hook Rd, Surbiton. I have been using them for years.

Clutch - I would change the oil first, KTMs like regular oil changes. .... and use good quality fully synthetic or what ever the manual says for freeride..

I use a guy that Burls recommended - based in Horsham. Will pick and drop off to most areas (charges me a tenner) - his work has been spot on and reasonably priced , dirt bike friendly - mots never a problem even with mousses fitted. details: Dave 07973471118

Have you changed the oil ? If you have how much did you put in. My 200 is recommended in the handbook 700ml but with that much oil in the clutch creeps when cold. I put 600-650 ml in and it is fine. Have a look on the KTM forum and you will see this is the norm. Otherwise Luke or Merik are both good guys.
