  1. Thanks... I will grab some new packing and see how it goes..
  2. Hi Guys, has anyone repacked the new 2.1 FMF Turbinecore. It is a larger exhaust and just wondering if anyone has info. on what packing to get. Repacking my stockers over the years I always used fmf 2 stroke packing, but it always seemed a little loose in a stock exhaust, so was debating doubling up on the 2.1
  3. I am running an 07 Duramax with 38s and an 11" lift.. I have a bed extender/ ramp made by a company called ready Ramps.. I ride my bike in .. and roll it out and jump down at the same time.. takes a little practice...
  4. I don't believe they will fit.. They changed the clutches in 2013

    I believe what you are experiencing is your fuel vapour locking due to excessive heat... First suggestion is wrap your pipe in ceramic coating exhaust tape.. This will prevent heat transfer from your exhaust to your tank, which when the tank gets lower tends to typically boil your fuel.. I have rode trials bikes and they tend to really heat up when ridden hard and fast.. The Freeride I believe is a similar beast as it is not designed to be a fast trail bike.. Great bikes for cruising the trails.. I have a buddy who is 72 who still races and roses and he has one and had similar issues... They are just not designed to be ridden hard line and enduro bike.. The brakes are off of an 85cc 2 stroke which is a kids bike.. They are lighter duty for such a big bike and this tells me the bike isn't designed to go ripping fast.. I am not sure how you ride but this is just some feed back for you... I also bought a Freeride for my wife , and she loves it ... Great bikes... I try not to ride it much other than to toodle around on it and play on obstacles ..
  6. Those pipe / skid plates are great.. But if you ride in a lot of muddy or wet conditions, they fill up with mud and add an extra 20lbs to your bike.. Not to mention the weight of those guards.. I ran a similar one for part of season, and switched back to just a wrap around guard and really started to work on my riding technique which has saved me a pile on bent pipes... It still happens on some nasty crashes but those have been less and less as I have practiced. The old term slower is faster helped me relearn how to ride and concentrating on riding clean.. Speed comes back and the crashes are less..
  7. You should start seeing a pile of used 2 strokes coming in the next while.. This being said I am on a 17 300 xc and I ride and race with a bunch of guys that are all 2 stroke fanatics.. If you can afford the 17 it is well worth the money... Every one of my buddies up here have jumped and bought 17s and there isn't a ride that we go on that we rave about how great these new bikes are.. For someone that hasn't rode older 2 strokes you probably wouldn't know the difference, but believe me when I say you will be far more advanced on these new bikes.. If your budget is tight then bottom line is get a bike and ride , and when you can afford a new model you too will see the vast improvements.. The xcw is a great bike for trail riding and racing.. Heck the top riders in the enduro world ride exc's which are basically xcw's ... My personal preference is the xc due to the set up which is a compromise between Moto and Enduro, which I like to do both of.. If you go with any year xcw you will like the plush suspension.. If you go with XC stay away from the 4cs suspension cause you will need to dump cash into the suspension to make it work... The 17s in my mind are going to put tuners out of business.. They are tuneable out of the box...
  8. The only enduro style 65 was made prior to 2009 . KTM made a 65xc and an sx.. My youngest is on a 08 65xc..
  9. We have a pile of kids riding the sx65 in our cross country races and they never have issues with overheating. The terrain we run them on is smaller versions of the adult courses so they get small doses of technical riding and hill climbs.. The 2 strokes have less moving parts so do not generate the heat a 4 stroke does.. If jetted properly and not to lean it shouldn't have much issue with getting to hot.. Put a heavier flywheel weight in if you do more technical riding and this will help out with having to clutch as much and give a smoother manageable ride.
  10. Bikes like the Freeride and the Beta Xtrainer.. They are newer development bikes over the last 5 years.. They have disc brakes good suspension. If you want to step up your game and your wallet you could go to a bike that the technology exceeds all others in my opinion is the 2017 ktm xcw or if you rather ride track the sx...The new chassis and engine and suspension are unbelievable and light.. They can be lowered and with this bike your skills will grow and you will not need to sell it to upgrade as your skill develops.. With a tuneable powervalve you can control the hit from the power band to reflect your riding style.. Just some options for you to think on..

  12. I know a lot of ladies that race xc and they have end up on the Honda 150r ... They are great bikes but tend to have starting issues when you flame them out( stall them) I would not recommend them as a beginner bike .. The 230 is a good overall trail bike, but it's a tank.. Suspension and brakes leave a lot to be desired.. Great suspension to start out on, but if you want to excel and get the most out of yourself it would be in your best interest to start out with newer technology . The riders today are leaps and bounds ahead by using newer technology. It's the evolution of our new athletes, and it's making us achieve things one could only dream of. Ya I am a ex Honda rider racer, and am a full on KTM fanatic.. I see the advancements in all the bikes but my preference is for the Orange.. Lol.. The price is higher, but so is the resale.. In my mind worth every penny..
  13. I would recommend the Freeride for most women.. I just recently purchased one for my wife. She is 4' 11" and 110 . I put the lowering seat on it and also dropped the suspension with a lowering kit from Ktm.. I also did the lightest springs that are available through WP.. The power is very torquey but plush and can be lugged right down without an immense amount of clutching which is typical on most 2 strokes .. The wide ratio transmission works well for the slow technical riding and you can really open it up on the open sections . With no powervalve you do not get that hit that you would normally get in a 2 stroke so the power is very linear and manageable. The brakes are the same as an 85cc so a little small for a larger rider who rides the bike hard. Smaller rider will have very little problem with them though. I have recommended these bikes to other ladies and they have been very pleased with their handling and their ability to handle the bike as a smaller rider. Most people that knock these bikes are not using them for the purpose they where intended for, which is they are not a full on xc race bike. These are designed to ride as a trail bike, but have the characteristics and suspension of a regular size bike less the weight. The old school 4 strokes are great learning bikes, but they are ancient technology and ride the same way.. My wife has ride them all and she is in love with her new wheels, and if it keeps her happy it keeps her riding... That's my 2 cents.. Good luck and happy riding ..
  14. The exhaust flange connection is causing the spatter on everything.. quick fix is just to use 2 zip ties on either side of the rubber flange and problem solved. The power valve gasket area could just be the bolts need to snugged up.
  15. For future reference ... Sometimes it's not the seal. I used to change out everything until one day I had a buddy tell me to just replace the o ring. Problem solved.. I do like the larger o ring you get from all balls as well.. I would start with the regular and if it gave me trouble then I would just switch to the larger o ring.
