I got the 620 miles service done at the dealership (USA) for my 2019 KTM 790 Duke. I am planning to do the regular maintenance, change the oil/fluids etc myself and keep the receipts until the next 9300 miles service at the dealership. Does this void the warranty ?

I am at the same mileage and am doing the same plan. First service just done and Road 5's installed. I don't expect it to affect the warranty as I will be doing more oil changes than they recommend.

What is your source for OEM oil filter with the O ring or the oil filter kit? I found one on KTMTwins but it doesn't have the O ring.

I am planning on the same maintenance approach.
Thanks for listing the parts source.
Please let us know how it works out for you warranty wise.

I went more aggressive. I did the first service myself once I found out that my bike already has the latest software version. It was just a simple oil and filter change. The two screens were in perfect condition. There was no need to replace it. I just need to take the bike back to the dealer to get the oil leak fixed at the front sprocket.

I read in a few other similar threads that on the first service they also do quickshifter calibration, no sure how necessary it is still in a break in period myself.

Checked with the dealership and all you have to do is use KTM recommended products & keep the receipts.

Interestingly my bike was serviced by an official Ktm dealer without using the recommended Motorex oil. I guess if it goes bang then it’s down to them?!!!
Actually I think providing the oil meets the exact same specification it‘s acceptable.

That's what I would've guessed, to be on the safe side I'll use motorex unless my dealership can recommend a more affordable option. It's only two years then you can use whatever you like.

Motorex is really good oil. I would be very surprised if there are any dealers out there taking a bottle of Powersynt off the shelf for your first service. More likely semi synth out of a drum and no filter change

I doubt that Motorex is better than Rotella T6. It's really easy. Just look for the JASO/MA/MA2 specifications.

Im not 100 percent sure you can just keep receipts for oil to satisfy the warranty. Id probably be hiding the receipt for the Diesel oil

Seeing as though KTM say 9300 miles for the 2nd oil change I doubt anything you do on top of this is going to affect the warranty , receipts or not. The original poster did stipulate the dealer would do first service so this is above and beyond the recommended schedule.

I live in California so KTM can't pull that boooau sheaatt. Just make sure the oil has JASO/MA/MA2 specifications. It's in the manual.
