  1. i just bought an 08 sxf 250...

    the guy at the moto shop sold me some motul 10w40.. i was wondering if anyone knows if the engine and gear box oils are combined??? thanks

    and i was also wondering how often i should drop the oil. my friend said about every 8 hours... is this correct??? thanks
  2. Hey mate, i am no expert on KTM`s but i know that you use that synthetic oil for engine and mineral oil for clutch, your oil goes into the case and the clutch oil into the reservoir if that makes sense. I have heard of people changing it after five hours and others change it every second fill up so your choice mate. Hope this helps a bit :)
