350 SXF - Power Mods

Recommended Posts

FMF 4.1 RCT Pipe

Under Seat Map Switch - Set to aggressive

52T rear sprocket

Anyone else made any other power mods to their 350? Ride 99% MX and have been embarrassing a lot of 450 guys.

It is so much easier to ride than my 450 was. Better handling, lighter feel, and can do five 20 minute sessions and not be absolutely exhausted. Still wish I could find a little more bottom end pull but not enough to want to go out and buy a 450.

ive only ridden a 450 once. it was an 08 CRF450, and the power was nice but the suspension was way to stiff for my weight and the bike felt heavy. i plan on doing a yosh full exhaust, a 51 or 52 sprocket and the yoshi mapping along with enzo suspension.

Bike is totally different from bottom to mid. It gets to the mid power a lot quicker and the throttle response seems quicker. I still find myself struggling in tight rutted corners being to high in the revs in 2nd gear but don't have the power to lug 3rd like a 450. I still may play with the gearing a little more.

Thats my gripe right now. I am stock except for a 51 on back. I am starting to think about trying some different mods to get more grunt. I really don't want to buy an exhaust right now and I don't think I will have to. We shall see:ride::thumbsup:

Looking at a Loud Mouth air take system to try. Claims it adds bottom end pull. Anyone tried one?

i had one on my YZ250F. i want to get one for the 350. I liked the way it felt. Butt dyno said it was worth it. hell the ease of filter changes was even better.

I went with a 13t front sprocket. It's a lot cheaper, and it brings the gearing closer to my crf250 which I am more used to riding. Also did the aggressive map setting, which makes it rev faster I think.

Do you have the full FMF exhaust? I have a titanium slip on 4.1 on order which I am hoping will give it a more aggressive powerband.

I also shed 3lbs with a turn tech 2.5ah battery, that plus the muffler should help with the weight.

I put the FMF 4.1 with the header and added one tooth on the rear along with some VP 4.4 fuel and it was a screamer. After a 4 month wait , my map switch came in this week and just put it on. What should i expect???

14/51 = 3.643

13/48 = 3.692

14/52 = 3.714

we run 14/51

fmf megabomb header with ti silencer

map switch on aggressive

we had a crank failure and gearbox failure at 8 hrs we matched the exhaust manifold to the head and did a light flow job around the valve seats, this seems to bring the bike alive with the other mods in the upper revs. it will hang with 450's down the straights no problem.

Until you exit turns, that is.

      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

      I got about 6 months on my 350 xcf-w. I ride a lot of tight, rocky,rutty, slippery single track in South west PA. The only things I've added are suspension, bark busters, skid plate and disc protectors. I purchased a trail tech mapping switch but hesitant to add it as I heard the dealer needs to unlock the ECU and am not sure how much of a benefit it will be. I have a Scott steering dampner I'm going to add. I'm also looking at exhaust options for my riding conditions. What do you guys think about the items listed and what suggestions do you have?
