Once I get my plastics, I'll have a Yz to match your yellow ones! Those are sweet bikes too!

‘86 CR250 and ‘78 YZ400. Have been working on both, owned them for a few years now. Actually have only had the CR for 8 months, did a top and bottom rebuild on it, just needs new plastics.IMG_2258.jpgIMG_0551.jpg

First bike was a 2004 yz85, thing was a blast but way too small for me (6ft 140 lbs) got it just to mess around on and learn more about 2 strokes/maintenance etc.

Upgraded to a clapped 2004 rm125 middle of last season but it's coming along!

Here’s some of my past two strokes (not pictured 2001 cr 80)

My humble beginning

My Kdx 80

....gap 4 stroke years....

Coming back to the sport, I rebuilt this 125

Then traded for my current kx 250 which was blown when I got it and I built it from the ground up.

My 4 year olds pw that I picked up for $60

My 7 year olds rm 65 that I am rebuilding bought for $320.

Two dunes projects for the wife and I to cruise on

My 1993 KTM 300 MXC
and my
1990 Suzuki RM125
got both as project bikes, still have em, and still love em. Suzuki was free from a good friend who wanted it out of his shed, and the KTM was $650.

How hard is it to find parts for that KTM? I’ve seen some lurking around for cheap, didn’t buy em because I didn’t know about parts availability.

Not much aftermarket supply. When I buy oem, I usually have to go to local dealer. Can’t find a lot of oem stuff online. So far this bike has only needed a tiny spring for the kickstarter and an aftermarket gasket set, plus some misc bolts and plastics, and it’s a beast. If you found one that needed a ton of work though, I would pass on it. Half the time I can’t even get oem parts through the dealer, they are all discontinued and if ktm runs out, good luck on eBay.

Ok good to know. That’s what I thought, these don’t seem to be very popular bikes on the aftermarket lol. Not very many parts.

Yeah I still haven’t found a manual for this one. The worst part is I can’t find any info on the bike, no specs. I just look up info for a similar year EXC and hope it applies

That’s kinda scary lol. Makes you wonder how long till it doesn’t have enough parts available to run. KTM should make some parts for these older bikes.

I know I wish they did! I really want an 80s EXC but I’m afraid it will be even worse than the one I have for parts and such.
