Question about 2008 KTM 450 EXC-R
Drained the oil the other day on my 08 450 exc and found a piece of seal in the oil as well as metal, when i removed to fill plug oil came rushing out as if it was too full, however i fill to specs every time, noticed the gearbox section empty.
Was wondering if there is a common prob on this model.
Engine made a strange wine before hand however still goes hard.
Running with no oil in the gearbox means all new bearings and seals and all new gears and possibly shafts. If you found metal in the oil, the entire engine is contaminated and will need to be rebuilt: Crank, top end and all else. Your engine is self destructing due to lack of oil. Yes, it still goes hard - - - but not for long. Sorry.
