Klx Elevaton Changes???

Anyone run a holtzman ATAAC on their KLXto assist with temp and elevation changes?

I am planning a trip to Colorado this year but I live in Ohio. I ran one of these on my last snowmobile and I had no jetting issues running from sea level all the way to 11k feet in Wyoming.

I was thinking of trying it out and wanted to see if anyone has done it? and if it wrked for you?

Thanks,

I just looked at the device. Very interesting. If you've already got some familiarity with it through snowmobiling, couldn't hurt to try it out in CO. It would be interesting to see if it works.

As a back up, I'd bring an extra main jet. I ran a 124 main in the stock carb to keep it running right. Not sure if you've got any mods to the bike, but a size up or down from a 124 would also be good (if you've got them handy).

My rides can go from below sea level, to 12,000' (sometimes in one days ride!!!). You can do a rejet for altitude by decreasing the amount of fuel (smaller jet), or more simply, just increase the amount of air....the result is the same! For those who go to high altitude only occasionally, or who see huge elevation changes every day, this works great:

I jet for sea level, and install a couple of the Thunder TPI valves in my airbox lid. As I ascend I open up the valves for more air, and then close them as I descend. Above 10,000', I just pull the airbox lid off completely.

Thanks for the info guys...

I see what you are saying about the re-jetting through making airbox changes but the nice thing about this system was that once installed, there was no need for ANY change!!!

One difference is that the sled was a 2 stroke and it may be a lot more finicky than these 4 stroke bikes. But im gonna contact Holtzman and see what they have to say. I know they use things in more than just sleds so I guess we will see.

Thanks again,

If you're heading out this way and want to hook up, drop us CO riders a line. Would be a pleasure to show you some of the killer rides out here.

Thanks ! We might just do that! My buddy is planning the trip for us. We are looking at anywhere from 2-5 riders but im not sre just where we are gonna go yet.

There are no shortage of places to ride here, just depends how far you want to travel. There is still snow in the higher elevations until April, depending on what sides of the mountain you're riding on, but we're still finding places to ride through the seasons. At any rate, feel free to pm me if you're interested in a ride. If we don't hook up, I can give you a list of cool places to consider.

      Hello TT, I am currently going to replace the rear shock on my 2003 KLX125L (same thing as a DRZ125L with green plastics) and i would like to know if the KX100 shock bolts right in direct fit on the STOCK swing arm? i have searched around and haven't got a straight forward answer to my question for the stock swinrgarm and i know about the dr_drz thread for his DRZ but he's also using a KX swing arm. Just wanted to know if it's a direct fit besides removing upper chain roller or if there's any machining need done. Thank you.

      Hi, I am looking to get my first dirt bike, female 5' 2" 125lbs.. I have experience riding quads, and a little experience just playing around on pit bikes and kids bikes.. Checking out the CRF 125, KLX 140, and TTR 125.. They all seem like a good place to start, especially being short and new to the sport. I think ill pick up riding pretty quick but want a bike thats gonna be a good starting point, not to big/tall/heavy, yet reliable and fun.. Ive looked at the CRF and KLX so far, I like the idea of a little extra power with the klx.. but like the kick start option of the CRF and in general kinda like Hondas.. Another friend recommended the TTR so just want opinions/comparisons and input from anyone willing, thanks so much!

      I have a 1999 KLX300R which I bought this past April (2017). I only ever ride it on the weekends for no more than an hour (time constraints). Since I bough it, it has always ran hot. The oversized aftermarket pipe it has constantly heats and burns my leg, just from those hour rides. I've dropped it twice and both times the coolant boiled afterward, but it doesn't boil when I just riding it normally. Just this past weekend (late July), I went riding with some friends and put some hard hours on it. As I was coming in for a break I pulled in the clutch and the engine immediately stopped and locked up. I got off and tried to kick it over but it wouldn't budge. I let it cool down then rolled it back and forth in 6th gear to free it up. It starts and runs smoothly now, but there sounds and feels like there is something rattling around in the top of the cylinder.
       
      What should I do? Can and should I try to swap another engine into it? What could the problem be? broken piston ring? broken valve/shim?
