you should learn how to do it greg, if you plan on keepin that bike for a while.

checkin valves on them motards is very important, especially since you rail on them on the road tracks.

that sucks.

yeah, i would check the valves after every other trackday, or after 8 hours of use.

not sure how sensative the KTM's valves are....but that's what i did for the honda.

oil change after every trackday as well. buy a service manual for the ktm, it'll show you everything you need to check valves.

it's not that hard to do. . .and it's VERY important that you stay on top of the valves. If i wasn't going to Chicago to do a job tomorrow i would come by and take a look at it with you
