A LIST WITH ALL THE NECESSARY REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE WORK DONE TO MY KTM 690 ENDURO R
More than a decade ago I learned how to use my hands in combination with mechanic tools in a sometimes more, and sometimes less professional way. As a consequence, I’m doing the required maintenance work and repairs on my motorcycle by myself.
Overall I have to say that Чернотa is a very reliable KTM 690 Enduro R. In the meanwhile there was no lethal breakdown for over 80 000km or nearly 50 000mi.
Down below you will find a ongoing list with all the maintenance work and necessary repairs I did to Чернотa. There are also a few assorted maintenance pics with a maintenance description down below.
