1/4 to 1/2 Turn Throttle Mod?

Recommended Posts

After some testing (read play time) yesterday on my 08 TE250, I decided I miss my half turn throttle. Is there a way to modify the factory setup to make it half turn. If not, what are the next best options (if any)?

As well as g2 you can check out rollonthrottle.com unipro for ktm. I just installed one on my 2008 te450. Both the g2 and unipro use adjustable cams to let you adjust the turn rate slower or quicker than stock. Often they work well to slow down the first part of the twist and to quicken the mid and top part of the twist.

I had the throttle stop out (from the dealer) and then put it back in. George's comment about the ecu retaining an error code and voiding the warranty spooked me a bit. I've seen mention of the replacement cam option before. Maybe that's the only choice. I was really hoping for a longer rotation on the grip but I'll look into the g2 and unipro. What's your experience with them? I like tight, technical single track.

If the ecu really does store a code because the throttle stop has been removed. And you have ridden the bike with it removed then it is already to late. You might as well remove the stop and ride on.

I just did my first ride with the unipro. I set it on the softest position. It was definitely worth it for me as it got rid of the choppy throttle while street riding. So instead of worrying about that I can enjoy the ride more.

It's not like going from a 1/4 turn to a 1/2 turn. In total it feels just a bit longer turn. The off-idle is quite a bit softer and easier to turn with my current setting. I can lean on it and get a subtle rpm increase instead of a lurch.

Anyways, now I'm ready for some more horsepower. This euro3 setup is weak.

      Long story short I bought this 2011 WR300. The thing is mint, looks brand spanking new. The thing ran like a top, but only had one problem, a low idle. I was to lazy to fix it and just dealt with the fact that I always needed to keep a little bit on the throttle. My third ride on it, I took it to the florence dunes and the top end burnt up. I have just finished fixing it and all I need to do is break it in. I need to adjust the idle first though, and don't know if I'll have the idle too high until it starts. I don't want to hurt the motor on a fresh rebuild and want some opinions on what to do. Do you think it will be fine? How many turns out should I set the carb just to be safe?
      Any response helps

      Just bought a used 2017 Husqvarna FC450. It's my 1st EFI bike so I'm hoping someone can help me out with this issue.
      After starting the bike cold and idling for about a minute or two, it blows a puff of blue smoke from the exhaust pipe if I roll the throttle. It also does this if I stop to talk to a riding buddy on a trail or on the side of the track, let it idle, and then start out on track again. After revving it once the blue smoke is gone but riding buds have told me they smell and occasionally see a puff of blue smoke when following me - not a constant stream just a puff and then it's gone for a while. I'm talking to myself over trying to locate the cause of this as a leak-down test shows no issue. 
      Bike history
      Bought used with 70 hours on it. 
      Original owner had an FMF header and tailpipe on it which he kept. He sold it to me with the stock pipe. He never had it remapped for the FMF pipe
      Started it's life in Atlanta GA 
      Now mostly ridden at sea level
      He told me he used mineral-based 10w-40 Yamalube oil. The manual calls for 10w-50 Ester-based synthetic - which the bike is now running. 
      This is what I've tried so far:
      Leak-down test produced only a 3-5% loss.
      No bubbles in the coolant with the cap off
      No air leak at the exhaust pipe
      No leak at intake
      Barely, barely noticeable hiss when I remove the oil fill cap - but again not enough to lose any more than 5% pressure during the leak-down test.
      Wouldn't matter but checked the valve clearances while the valve cover was off. They were in spec.
      No loss of power
      No milky engine oil from a coolant leak
      No loss of engine oil as seen at the engine oil level window - never needed to add oil between changes
      Talked to someone who builds motors for a living and he said "all KTM/Husqvarna's do it especially when cold because the EFI delivers more fuel on startup as opposed to running at operating temperature". I guess I can see that but why does the bike blow blue smoke at operating temperature then if I pull off the trail or track for 1 minute to ask one of my riding buds something? I'm not letting it idle for minutes at a time. 1-2 minutes tops. Is this just normal for KTM/Husqvarna/4-stoke racing bikes?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Former bikes where 2-strokes (CR250, RM125) and a 1993 DR350 which I could've let idle for 20 minutes an not seen blue smoke - but that was a carbed bike. I've always known if a 4-stroke is smoking blue it's burning oil and you shouldn't keep riding it. So I'm a bit concerned about whipping it around the track or taking it out a few miles on trails.

      As the title suggests, I've been debating the idea of throwing in a high compression piston. It will bump the compression in my 2014 KTM 350 XC-F from 13.5:1 to 14:1. First and foremost my main question is, because I live under 1000 ft and usually run 97 octane REC gas, will I have to change the fuel I run or not? Also, will I have to change out the cams to aftermarket and re-time the whole motor and ignition? I guess I really don't know what to expect so any advice will definitely help! Attached below is a photo of the bike I plan on putting it in.
