Its all fixed now and has been ridden once since.Cost him the parts, and the service shop covered the labour.

sounds like a swizz to me.

My Boss just bought a 2010 ktm fourstroke i think its a 350cc.
He has had the first 2hr service done new filters oil etc.Then 2hrs more riding and the engines stuffed due to blocked air filter and dirt getting past wearing the rings out.this bike has only done 4hrs total
has any one else had any experience with this kind of problem.he's not happy.

If he just had a service done that included filter it becomes the service providers problem I would think. Unless it was moddified somehow or tampered with after service.
I bet he is not happy.

Yeah you would think so but they recon its him not cleaning it regularly enough,i mean how often is enough aye if 2hrs is to much.

Geez two hours could be one outing. Something sounds off here.

make sure its put in properly. they dont always sit in very well on the ktms

Yes the dealer did the service and installed all the filtersoil etc.so should have been done properly.

Tell him to check out ktm talk.com.he will get all the answers he needs on that site.Those guys in that forum will know for sure whats happened. Sure sounds like the air filter wasnt seated in there properly though.

Rings don't wear out in two hours even if there is no air-filter. Tight motor and the rings overheated or partialy siezed would be more likely.

You could be right i dont know how it has been run in.
