Mag Cleaning procedure & Pix

This might help some, might bore others.

This is the mag cover

Remove 6 bolts with 8mm socket and you will see this

This is what you want to clean

Note the dowel pins

Those holes are where the long bolts go.

This is fine metallic flakes.

Bolt cover on. I like to start with the 2 longer bolts and work on opposing bolts in order. Just snug at first and then torque to maybe 6ftlbs or so.

Finally reward yourself for a job well done.

If you are really pleased with yourself the rewards may continue.

Awesome. This forum is the best...period! Gas for you.

Love the last pic!

That last pic is great and has given me an idea for a new thread. Everyone post a picture of themselves doing a Dale Wickline impression with their favorite flavour of beer. :applause:

That last picture is a keeper.

Thank you Dale!

Will this work as doing a Wickline

best I could do on short notice :)

P.S. Thanks Dale for the pictorial, I'll be checking mine soon

So did you just wipe it out and put it back together? Would blasting it with some contact cleaner help any?

Thanks

lmao:ride:

The man needs more beer! :applause:

Dale: How many miles before you did that (first?) check/cleaning? I've got just under 1K and have not checked yet. Also, you dumped your oil first - right? Otherwise some total squid (me) could have a driveway mess on their hands. Thanks for the pics.

I'm starting to see a theme here! :applause:

I've got about the same mileage and I've done it twice.

Yes the oil needs to be drained.

I don't use any cleaner just wipe it off.

Judging from your avatar I'm guessing we will see you with your bong? :cry:

Dale - Funny stuff as usual man :applause: The last picture looks like a talk like a pirate day pic. Arg, where's me beeeer.

Great post :applause:

Nah, those days are long gone. The last time I had a puff was probably 15 years ago, or maybe 4 years, maybe it was 6 months ago. No, it was 10 years ago, fersure 10 years ago.

Thanks for the great pics and tip.:applause:

Great Post :applause:

Thanks Dale! Something to do while it is snowing!!! You did say drink the beer afterwards, right??? Would one beer be ok between draining the oil & taking apart the cover? You really need to be more precise!

      So I just sold my bike 2017 TC250 with only 17 hours on it. When it left it was in brand new condition. But 2 days later the engine cases were being split.
      Turns out the Idler gear had snapped off during the new owner’s first ride. Of course I am not paying for the fix as one it is clearly a manufacturing defect. I told him If needed I would help by me claiming it as warranty issue.
      Anyways I did some research and discovered that the KTM/Husky expected a 6x12 to hold the idler gear sys together on 2017.
      Well this seems to be an issue and KTM did fix it for the 2018 models. They actually updated the whole Idler gear sys, but if you still have a 2017 2 stroke the fix before it happens which it could on the first kick would be to replace the bolt with a 6x20.
      You will have to tap the hole for more treads. Actually the 2018 engine case was also updated for this and that’s all they did.
      I own a 2018 TX300 now. One reason why I looked into it. 
      Just thought I would share.

      Greetings to everyone. After a lot of searching I finally decided to join this forum in order to finally find a solution to my problem. Here's my story. Bought in a hurry an sm610 2005 (cylinder with the small tensioner) which wouldn't start cold. Only if I connected it to a car battery would it start but not always and not easy. Got a new 14amp battery and nothing. Spark plugs,starting spray etc nothing worked out. If the engine was cold it would start in an instant very very easily. Took it to a mechanic he told me that it had no compression so he grinded the valves. When I got there to take it back he told me that my pick up coil was in bad condition and needed to be replaced in order to start cold. Of course nothing changed after the valve job and after 5 hours of riding(not constant) my new head gasket blew and when I took it apart I found a crack in the water passage on my head right next to the blown up spot on my gasket. I don't know if it was already cracked or if it cracked after gasket blew all I know is that it was tightened properly as I was in front when this happened. I'm just trying to figure out why i can't get it to start cold. All answers are welcome. I had the head fixed and I'm ready to reassemble the engine. Could the pick up coil actually be responsible for this? Another thing I noticed. My tensioner had an apostate welded up to it so i needed a new cam chain as well as a new tensioner. I have these. Could the ruffled chain be in charge? The engine was perfect when hot starting and working like a charm. Please someone help as I'm ready to take the damned thing and throw it into the ocean.
      PS is the pick up coil from an lc4 engine compatible?

      As I was inspecting my new-to-me bike that I just purchased, I noticed there is a grove on the back side of my front brake rotor that goes completely around it, and you can feel it with your finger nail. I have noticed some poor performance, but I figured it was because of the new pads that the previous owner installed just before I bought it hadn't seated yet. However, I've ridden a couple times and it doesn't seem to get much better, if any better at all. Is that enough to explain why when I pull in the brake as hard as I can, it only slows me down a little, instead of going into a stoppie and over the bars (as I wish it would)?
      Should I look into buying a brand new rotor?
      I have no pictures of it, I'll try to post some when I can.
