The problems seem to revolve around the SR (high power) version.

On both versions there is a special way to check the oil level. This is critical.

Re: Riding the Cardó-el Boix mountains in Catalunya on my KTM 640 Adventure

Fabulous scenery, great movie, but..

For those of us considering an action cam for riding it would be really useful if the details of the cam used are also given with the video posting.
