R50k? If a big portion of the engine is replaced, excluding stator and clutch, it will cost about R40k +-. Are all services up to date? That doesn't look too bad to be honest, however can see the wear. Seen way worse than that. KTM SA is very good when it comes to out of warranty claims and goodwill warranties. I'm pretty sure they will honor it given all services with them are up to date.Sad to report my 2019 KTM Adventure R has significant cam wear at 25 000 kms. Took the bike in last week, wasn't sounding right. My spidey senses were correct as my intake valve follower and cam lobe were chewed up. Out of warranty. Talking to KTM SA to see if they can help out with the R50k bill.
Bought secondhand from the KTM dealer. Only put 4 000 kms on the clock.
Anyone seen similar damage and found the cause?
