    Those 4 o-rings are for coolant. I'd also use appropriate sealant between the flange and cylinder. Look at any power valve cleaning video. Slavens has one.

    Newer WP Open Chamber 2stk Valving

    KTM Manual calls for 4,4 N/mm for 85-95 kg (187-209lbs). My springs RT .46 kg/mm converted are stiffer than that at roughly 4,5 N/mm Slavens has a fuller chart. https://slavensracing.com/shop/fork-springs-wp48mm-43mm-x-505mm-ktm-husaberg-wp-2/ I will have to weigh myself with gear (w/o gear I fluctuate between 185 - 195). More incentive to cut weight.
  4. Am considering taking out gold valves (base and mid) and playing with the stock pistons. Any comments on my proposed starting point would be appreciated.

    The bucking could be a result of bottoming, especially if the sag is too high or the HS Comp is too soft. Adjust the sag and turn up the HS comp.

    Changing Fork Seals - KTM 450 EXC WP

    No, we have Google to find the stuff you need.
  12. 2013 KTM 300 XC-W (Open Chamber Forks w/ WP PDS Rear) (RT .46 springs up front with a RT P15 Spring in the back) 115mm sag 195lbs (w/o gear), Single and Double Track Trail rider (loose sandy loam rooted trails) I have RT GV (Base and Midvalve) up front and am pretty happy with the results. I also have a GV installed in the rear with the following valving and experience quite a bit of bucking over any square edge hit. I have tried to turn out the high speed compression (1 full turn) and it helped some, but since I need to tear it down for service was wondering if a revalve would help to get rid of the bucking. Appreciate any thoughts. Gold Valve Compression Valving cL 2007, cLX 1528, cH 238 Gold Valve Rebound Valving rL 2004, rLX 1526, rH 254

    Lectron Carb Worth It? 2017 KTM 250 XC-W

    There are a ton of the Lectrons for sale at ktmtalk if you want to try one (guys seem to be ditching them en masse). Stick with the stock carb. The head is a better bang for buck from what I have read.
  14. Unless you get a deal on an older 200, I am not sure I would go to the pain and effort to find one. The 250 XC is better in every way (motor, chassis, suspension and resale).
  15. What idiots! Have you thought about the 2017 250XC? Lots of guys say feels like the old 200.
