Re: Potential Engine Damage?

Thanks again for all of your replies. Radiator has been successfully bled and filled to normal levels. Bike came stock with the cooling fan and I will stick with the existing radiator cap and test for leakage following some legit riding next weekend. I will post results following ride hopefully to only report grins, giggles and dirt in my teeth. Man I love this bike.

Re: Potential Engine Damage?

Has anyone had this happen on a 70 degree bike?

I lost a radiator hose (stick went through it) and it got hot enough to bring on the FI light.

I changed the hose and the oil and filter and all seemed fine, but on a ride this weekend, the boys reckoned I was blowing a bit of smoke, and I could smell the bloody thing burning oil. Is it normal for these bikes to burn a bit of oil? I'm dreading I have got a bike which has inherited the KTM oil issue's, or I have done damage due to heat. The power seems unaffected (pulled a 3 km wheelie on Saturday!) and the engine isn't noisy, but I am super paranoid.

Cheers

Tony

Thanks Dave.

I might rip the head off in Feb and check the rings just in case.
