    What Have You Done To Your KTM Today?

    Last night I tried to get the cylinder off my 200 to clean the sticking powervalve.. The bolts were so damn tight I couldnt get them off. So instead I pulled the motor mount bolts and pivoted the motor backwards. Then I was able to pull the PV cap off and go nuts. Everything was gunked up. The flapper valve had carbon that was like cement all over it. Had to use Seafoam and sand paper to get it all off. Put it all back and it flippy floppys all freely now. Also cleaned the carb, drained the oil and coolant, and bled all the hydros. Just need to get the peg mount welded back on (from a fall in September) and I'm ready to ride again. I haven't rode since Sept! I separated my shoulder and had a bunch of work to do on the bike.. I'm feeling good, bike is looking good, almost ready to BRAAAP!

    Today I did this: How should I go about fixing this? I'm assuming a good weld job? And I guess I need to fix my shoulder too. Dislocated it for a minute but I got it back in. Good times!

    Yes, because news outlets are known to publish follow-up stories to apologize when they reported wrongly, right??? No, they like to just make headlines that get your attention whether they're false or not. I have some ocean front property in Kansas that I can sell you real cheap!

    I'd like to have the gaskets on hand first! I will order some parts and get to it!

    That's what I was afraid of. It looked tight but wasn't sure. Thanks! I'll ride it tomorrow and give it a proper clean up soon.

    Quick question - can I clean out the powervalve on my 2000 200 without taking the cylinder off? Can I just remove the exhaust pipe and get that cap off so I can flush it out with some spray cleaner? I think it is dirty, my power goes a bit flat on the last couple thousand RPMs. I have a ride tomorrow and would like to clean it up a bit, but I don't have enough time or the gaskets to pull the cylinder and do it that way. Thanks for any help!

    Today I checked my compression. I forgot I had a brand new Craftsman comp checker I got from my wife as a gift a few years ago. I have not touched the top end on this 2000, I got it about 3yrs ago, and have about 3.5 seasons of good riding on it. The guy I got it from said he just did the top end but who knows. I got 200 in first test, 205 on second, and 200 on third. Not too bad for the age of the top end!!

    NO MUSIC video thread!

    Good stuff guys! Love the videos! Hate videos with music, I'd rather hear the BRRRaaapaaaAAAPAPAPAPAAAAAPPPPP!!!! EDIT: Here's a fun one of mine from the end of last season... Riding at the Doug Henry compound.. If you don't know who DH is, look him up and prepare to be inspired and amazed!!!! I am lucky to be friends with him and live about 20 mins away. He puts on some damn good parties!!!! This is a little long, but worth it. There's some fun obstacles like riding through his hay loft, and riding over a Crown Victoria police cruiser!!! I am riding a 2000 KTM 200 EXC. My favorite bike evar!!!!
