KTM 350 Warranty, 30 Hours - Should I do more?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

As most of you know there is a warranty on the gearbox, the dealers have to split the cases . My bike has roughly 30 hours on it. Should I change anything while the motor is open? Any Bearings, at 50 hours the manual states new Con Rod, Is that overkill ? What do you guys think.

Yes, Speak to your dealer.

33/11/184/HQ-E / Action code !! Author: FH May 9th 2011

Applies to: MAIN SHAFT BEARING

Model: 350 SX-F 2011 (XC-F models are not affected)

Restrictions: Engines with a serial number below 1-772*05995*

Countries: All

Basic information:

Problems with bearing 0625204280, which was installed in 350 SX-F engines up to serial number

1-772*05994*, can lead to bearing failure or even to extensive engine damage.

For this reason, KTM decided to promote exchanging of the bearing in the markets with another bearing that

meets higher bearing material quality standards.

main shaft bearing conversion kit 772 33 099 100.

SO....how is KTM going to handle this for dealers sitting on 11's with engine serial numbers under that number?? There is a rebate on the bike right now and i was VERY close to buying.

theres a total of 6 posts in your thread, hardly any cleaning to do considering the fact that the posts pertain to your topic.... as far as im concerned its completely up to you. id have them spec your con rod and if they say its within spec i wouldnt spend the money...

Well, mine goes in for the warranty work at 60 hours and I'll have the dealer put in a new piston - will be as good as new afterwards. Even if not necessary at 30 hours a piston doesn't cost a fortune and you gain 30 more hours before you need to worry again - I'd do it.

      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 am purchasing a 2012 KTM 350XCF after wanting one for a year and finally picking one up in December. My question is what are some good things to watch for on this bike as far as initial set up and good Mods to improve bike ? My plan is to add a skid plate, hand guards and muffler with the possibillity of changing the header pipe and a Rekluse EXP would be nice as we ride mostly single track mountain trails with some rocks . Any good thoughts and suggestions would be appretiated
