2012 SMT Repair Manual

What the general feeling on doing an engine flush? I’ve recently bought this mint 2012 SMT from a local KTM dealer full KTM history but it came with 48k on the clock, I’m not worried as the book is all stamped up by the same dealer who originally sold it to the one owner who in turn traded it in for...
