canadian 400

Hey guys (first time poster) I have a 02 400exc (canadian) it runs great but I was just curious if there are any improvements that can be made in carburation?. Ive heard the canada bikes are ok....AL

About the only thing I can suggest is a long air screw that you can easily adjust. If you like the stock jetting use it. Much of the advice you get here and on KTM talk is the jetting which works in a certain area such as california or texas. I dont know where you are in CA but I have ridden in Ontario and my NNJ/NE/PA jetting works perfectly. It is 100% stock with a long airscrew. Now if you do other mods such as an exhaust or intake or whatever you may need to change. My suggestion is to leave it stock and work on the suspension. If you feel you must have more power use a QUIET pipe such as a Leo Vince or Akrapovik. Get something 94db or less (preferably less). btw dont miss the Crystal Lake Trail Ride in Ontario near Bobcaygeon.

ok now i are in Michigan with a canadian bike. Well the jetting should still be ok. Old saying if it aint broke dont fix it. Save your money.

Yeah, stock jetting was good in 02 except for the "G" bikes that went to California. In 03, all the USA EXC/MXC bikes (and maybe all North American bikes) got the lean "G" jetting.

oops, ya I live in mich. I have put the long screw in, just havnt rode yet(shoulder surgery last march) cant ride till june or july(or so the doc says). This is my first KTM and Ill never go back what a sweet bike!, I came off from blue and I must say the susp. on the blue bikes was much better but Im willing to deal with it I just have to get it dialed in. thanks....AL

      I have a 2007 450 EXC that I recently installed a new clutch slave cylinder on. Per the 2007 KTM service manual it clearly states that the clutch needs to be filled with hydraulic oil, which I did (magura blood). That was yesterday. I went out to double check the level today and when I removed the cover, the rubber seal was all contorted and out of shape. I then looked at the cover and it's a Brembo clutch and says "DOT 4 brake fluid only".
      I flushed the line and the master cylinder about 7 times with DOT 4 brake fluid and there was no sign of the magura blood left in the system. My question is: other than the rubber boot on the master cylinder, what damage might have been done by putting in the hydraulic oil? It was in for about 24 hours.
      Thanks in advance for any advice!

      Hi Folks!

      Sorry if there are a bunch of threads already but I used the site's search function and didn't find anything so far...

      I just found a decent deal on a '14 350 EXC-F with 11k km (unknown hours). Has a few goodies including skid plate, hand guards and it's for sale for about $2k CAD less than a '16 with 6k km on it.
      The bike is in showroom condition (appearance) with no indication it has been offroad at all.

      What would be the gotchas that would make this deal realistic? I'm coming from a WR250R where the engine lasts forever, is 11k street kms high for these bikes? 
      Are there any big defects in the '14s that I haven't dug up yet?
      With no service records what things should be done, checked, etc?

      I purchased an '06 525 EXC some time ago, and recently pulled the motor out of the frame to address some other issues. When I removed the clutch slave cylinder, I noticed an issue the previous owner neglected to tell me about during the purchase.
      It appears that at some point, the chain broke and damaged the engine case near the clutch slave cylinder (see pics, please). I have noticed that the clutch does not fully disengage (bike lurches a bit going into gear, neutral is hard to find... its worse when engine is cold) ... I did not notice any leaks around this area (mineral oil or engine oil) before or during disassembly. 
      The previous owner (or someone) repaired it with some sort of epoxy.
      Without doing my due diligence (checking clutch fluid level, bleeding) I hesitate to state that this is the cause of my clutch disengagement issue ... but pardon my ignorance here and help me out: How bad is this?  Am I looking at replacing my engine case here or is the previous owner's jerry rig good enough?
