2012 300 EXC Idle question??

Recommended Posts


I have a 300 EXC SixDays 2012 and am just under the 10 hr service mark (first KTM ever, 2nd bike and first new bike also).

Yesterday while riding I noticed that the bike died several occasions while on idle and in slow throttle range.

The bike is jetted as it came from the dealership and I have not touched the adjusting screw or the idle adjusting screw.

The bike also does not backfire, fail o anything like that.. it runs excellent with the green PV Spring and 1:60 ratio with unleaded fuel at about 250-300 meters ASL.

do you think I need to rejet or adjust the screws??

certainly adjust the air screw and or the idle screw.....that is what they are there for. the bike will run differently depending on altitude, temperature, or humidity or a combination . this is why the adjustments are possible.
