    ebay radiators

    i have broken off the shroud tab on my 2013 ktm 300sx. this bike is set up for the woods and has bullet proof designs radiator braces/ guards. my question is has anyone used the "ebay special" radiators ? and if so have you used them with braces?? http://www.ebay.com/itm/191320784882?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  2. Also I replaced the spark plug and it smokes like a chimney

  4. I have a 2003 Polaris Scrambler 50 that is having issues when running at wide open throttle. the carb and jets has been cleaned along with replacement of the fuel and air filter. Currently the bike runs fine down low but once you get the bike Tapped Out it starts to bag up top I am thinking that it is starving for fuel and that one of the Jets were gummed up but that is not the issue. Also the oil reservoir has plenty of oil for the oil injection. Should I go to a bigger main jet?

    Race tech bottoming device

    don't know much about the race tech kit but I know mx tech has some pretty trick parts out there for the 4cs suspension
  7. i recently rode with a friends pair of sidi crossfire 2 srs boots and fell in love with them but dont want to spend 575 on a set of boots. after looking around online i can get a set off ebay for 440 or i can get a set from motostorm.it from europe for 340 plus 30 for shipping just wondering if anyone has used one of these European sites? i ordered a airoh helmet from great Britten before they were being sold in the us and it was a smooth transaction

    fly wheel weight options

    i am getting ready to place an order with tmv for a fly wheel weight and i dont know what weight to get i am riding a 2012 ktm 300sx (250sx with the 300 sxskit) i will be riding national harescamvles and enduros with it in the open a class. i am looking to add the fly wheel weight to keep the bike from stalling as much in the corners and to try and make a little more traction. my options are 9oz,11oz, and 13oz i am thinking of going right to the 13oz as the bike should still have plenty of power even after adding this weight any one have any experience with this setup

    I am looking to make my 2012 ktm 250sx a 2013 250sx with front fender and number plate. But as to the shrouds can I just change the shrouds and air box side covers or do I have to change the air box and rear fender too

    300sx woods tunning

    Yes I read that too but that is for Motorola cross I will be riding national hare scrambles and enduros and I would imagine the getting would be too rich but the specs look lean compared to what I use to run in my 300

    300sx woods tunning

    i have a 2013 ktm 250 sx with the ktm 300 sxs kit running 105 octane race fuel and amsoil dominator 50/1 this kit includes the 300cylinder and jug with the high compression head. I am looking to race this in the open a class but have been trying to tune it in for the woods as it Is currently geared and jetted for the mx track the jetting is pretty rich for single track woods 42 pilot ( NOT BAD) 72 main n1eg neddle on the 3rd clip. (very rich) this carb setup is great for moto cross or wide open gp style riding. but it flys through fuel and i dont ride wide open motocross (even tho i do ride at the top of the power band in a lot of the hare scambles i ride, this jetting is just too rich for tight single track) i have researched this and plan on making an adjustment to the needle i have ordered a necj (suzuki needle) as i have been told that this needle is a ran by many of the national enduro riders on their 300s but I am worried this may be too lean of a setup for ny as I am anywhere from 700ft to 1000 ft elevation with air temp from 55-100 depending on the month next is gearing this bike has the 250sx gear box with a 14 48 sprocket set up. this gearing is way too tall for 3rd gear single track shredding and i have no idea where to start. i have a 50 and a 52 stock ktm rear sprockets in the spare parts bin. i was thinking of purchasing a new 13 tooth front procket and finding out what what rear sprocket to run after some testing, ( I LIVE IN NY AND ITS SNOWING NOW SO ANY GEARING TIPS WOULD BE GREAT AS I WILL NOT BE RIDING FOR A WHILE) also plan on throwing a fly wheel weight on to try and broaden the power out and prevent some of the stalling in the tight technical sections. any tips on what weight to run? I see that steahly has a 9oz and 11oz iam guessing the 9 is more for mx and the 11oz is more for woods? I dont want to loose too much power as I will be racing against many 450s
