Does this KTM SXF450 sound ok?


Recommended Posts

I'm new to KTM's. Just bought a used 2011 SXF 450. It sounds different than other bikes I've had int he past. I just want to make sure there isn't anything out of the ordinary... peace of mind, really. The sound I'm hearing is more significant on the right side of the bike. There is no knocking or ticking from what I can tell, just a noisier engine then I'm used to.

I hear KTM's have a thinner engine case, so maybe that's why. I also hear the timing chain tensioner tends to be an issue with these bikes.  Please take a listen to the video and let me know what you think. 

Thanks!

The clutches rattle when not pulled in

I read somewhere that that might be the case, but it doesn't seem to change the noise when I engage the clutch.
