Hi stealthrider,

here is an interesting article on motorcycle oil.


I run 10-W60 full synthetic Ipone oil in mine for the 3rd oil-change now (13,000 km) without any problem.

As long as the Shell Advance Ultra is a motorcycle oil it would be perfect ;)

Personally never seen the Baja filters but it is very likely these are interchangeable.
I use the OEM or the German Hi-flow oil filters.

Hi everyone, newbie here. I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me specially people in the Philippines. So, am looking around for a new bike. I鈥檓 really drawn to the duke 390, Am switching from an underbone bike. I was hoping to get a used 390 since am on a tight budget so I went around and found a dealer which sells repo 390. It鈥檚 on an as is where is basis. I noticed that they have quite a few ktm鈥檚 which got me thinking is it safe to get a repo ktm and why are they returning the bikes. I hope someone could shed some light on this. Thanks in advance!

idk i never tried buying a repo i always buy to the person who owns it?. just double check everything especially on the papers hard to process doc.papers these days it's better to bring a mechanic also ask for a test run.

Expert or not, i very much appreciate your input. I guess my main concern is why the ktm owners return their bikes. I hope it鈥檚 not a reliability issue.

what do you mean by 'repo' ?,
in the UK it is short for repossession, meaning it was taken back by the dealer or finance company because the 'owner' didn't keep up with payments
