2009 250 sxf

Recommended Posts

Ok guy, I just bought an '09 250sxf with a build date of July 6, 2008.

The strange thing is that all the graphics are the ones on a XC-F and not the SF-X and I dont have orange tripleclamps.

Does anyone know anything about this? Everything on the bike says SX-F including frame and title.

Could this be just an early model?

Im a little confused.:thumbsup:

Correct . U.S models have Black triple clamps. The rest of the World will get those Orange ones...

Also the '09 forks are no longer black anodize and look much better. Bad news is the MSRP on the '09 has also gone up to $7250 due to the Euro/US $ exchange rate.

7200 USD ?? That´s a bargain . Those things are priced around 13000 USD over here...:thumbsup: Luckily the price haven´t got up from last year.

Yeah, i buy my bikes from the US. By the time i clear them from the airport or sea port, i pay about 37% on top of the original price + shipping, so 7200 + 600 (shipping) = 7800 + 37 percent of that, do the math :thumbsup: lol

Damn, I feel lucky to live in the U.S.! I thought KTM prices were bad here, that's about $10k you're paying! :thumbsup:

You poor B@$£@rds...... Take a look at the Euro spec bike at ktm.com...:worthy:

Seriously, the U.S model looks quite nice too. I just don´t like those shrouds. Too Mulisha for my taste with all flying sculls etc...:thumbsup:

I dont even notice the skulls, lol

Those are quite hard to spot on a picture. You´ll see them when you have a change to see the bike on the showroom floor. Go Deegan & the Mulisha posse:banana: !!!

      Hello everyone, I am new to the page and to the world of ktm. I recently purchased a used 2008 ktm xcfw with a 300 big bore kit, not sure who made or installed the kit. I am looking to see if there is any way to buy a new carb that is set up for this bike with the 300 BB. Any help would be great. The fuel inlet is leaking and there are a ton of stripped screws so I’m thinking getting a new carb might be the best way to go but i don’t really have the skill or knowledge to tune and jet a stock one myself. Thank you!

      i am currently checking valve clearance on 2013 sxf 250 with 70 hrs. bike was bought new and never been apart(as far as i know). when setting TDC the notch on the crank when it is aligned to the whole, has the cam gear marks intake totally up and exhaust totally down. are these the wrong marks to look at or am i missing something. bike does run just a little difficult to start.

      Hey all. I’m a newbie here so let me know if  I’m in the wrong place. 
      I’ll get straight down to it. I’m in the market for a new bike and have been thinking about what’s going to be best for me for a long time. Until recently I finally came to the conclusion that a new YZ250FX is my best option. My last bike was 2015 Yz250f which I loved.
      Now just yesterday I saw a local dealer advertise left over 17’ FX350’s for almost the same price as the YZ. What appeals to me about the Husky is that extra grunt. What doesn’t appeal to me is the suspension and handling and the reliability of the machine. Now I’ve never owned a KTM or Husky so I am basing those two factors on word of mouth only. Like I said, I loved my Yz250f and felt very at home on it, it has probably been the best bike I’ve owned to date. Yamaha reliability is also second to none which adds to my peace of mind on purchasing the YZ. One thing I wish it had was more power though. Obviously it’s only a 250f so you can’t expect it to go like a 450 (not really interested in 450s).
      I ride mostly trails and the occasional day at the mx track. The trails I ride are gravel based, loose, rocky, single trail, and also wide, fast, flowing, sand trails which is where I think my yz250f really shined, and where I had the most fun. I’m only a small rider at 145lbs which is why I’ve steered away from 450s. 
      I’ve read a few forums and others have said the ktm and Husky 350s are unbeatable on the trail which is why I am in this dilemma.
      So basically what I’m trying to decide on is if that extra power is worth compromising for the YZ suspension, handling and usability. Feel free to make any other suggestions, including other bikes as I was also considering the YZ250X 2T.
      Thanks guys

      The story begins with simple installation procedure of a BIG BORE kit that we ordered from USA . The manufacturer (CYLINDER WORKS) and the dealer send us the correct kit and so far so good ! .
      The bike is a KTM 250 sx-f ,2011 model and bellow there are some photos for you, just to see how careful I am throughout the process .
      .. .. .. .. I change the valve seals and the exhaust titanium valves and springs with the PROX steel kit and make a little polishing on the intake and exhaust
      ......
      Put the cylinder-piston on and always with guidance from workshop manual and correct clamps...
      ..
      AND READY
      ...
      Until now we where happy !!! We start the engine ,and everything seems to be ok!
      Began to make the first ride and…… DISASTER !!!
      The engine start bleeding OIL from the hose-tube !!!!!!!!! I thought its normal if it is one-two drops but unfortunately didn’t STOP .
      We did one more ride to see what happens and still BLEEDING. Back to the WORKSHOP.
      DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS OF WHAT TO CHECK OR DO ???
