I use just under a quart however there is on most bikes a number near the filler plug on the case it will have the letters cc next to it this is cubic centimeters of liquid go to the metric to standard conversion chart on the web to find the metric to standard conversion to be absolutely sure of the exact amount for your bike.

Hi, Vaesdimitri after careful deliberation 4 out 5 KTM Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm. Good luck and have a nice day. manuals

How much oil does a ktm 450 exc hold

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry.
The suggested amount is 1.2 L.

You can download the owners/service manual from this site.
Just a note:
I have the same bike and 1.2l of oil will NOT register in the sight glass. I can't even see it in the bottom of the glass. SO IGNORE THE GLASS IF THIS HAPPENS AND DO NOT KEEP ADDING OIL TILL YOU SEE IT IN THE SIGHTGLASS. Add 1.2 liter if you are changing the filters, and add 1L if you are keeping the old filters in there.
Let us know if we can be of further service.
Kind regards,

My ktm 450 exc 2005 burns oil and makes blue smoke and I have got oil in airbox but i dont know why it is burning oil. What could it be. Please help

this is usually because of a few things,,,check,,,, and maybe change your plug,,,check gap,,,,adjust your carb,... it sounds like it is way to rich,,,,,lean it out a little,,,,,,and the worse problem,,,,,your rings on the piston may be getting worn,,,,and allowing oil to seep by,,,thus,,going into your airbox,,,,,,and combustion chamber,,,,, then blue smoke,,,,, take a compression check if all else fails,,,,,,, this will tell you if your rings are bad,,,,,, JOEL

After 1,5 ours, no oil left in engine looking in glass

If engine is cold, fill oil again to oil level and letit idle for about 5-15 minutes.. See if any white-blueish smoke comes out from exhaust when started or anything leaking anywhere. If any leaking, post your observation. Cheers.

Crank engine crank case too full and gear case section empty of o

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.
