  1. LukeYZ426f You are a F***ing loser!!
  2. Run the 120 505 on my 430. Great tire on steep, rocky, and wet terrian. Not so sold on the newer version (compound) of the GT 215AA
  3. Really disliked the format.
  4. Never had an issue with the Lectron on my 300 XC-W, nor anyone else I know with a Lectrons. Set it once and go. Runs beautifully. Much better gas mileage. I ride from 3k to 10k here in Montana.
  5. I dropped them down a couple mm yesterday and it was still leaking. I'm going to really take a close look at everything and make sure the floats aren't hanging up someplace. I did notice there's little bit of junk in the bottom of my gas tank so I'll take the petcock off and give it a good flush.
  6. Yeah i didn't even think about the floats sticking. I'll get a filter and a sharp drill bit today. Thanks
  7. No it doesn't have a filter. I did hear about the drill bit trick. I was worried about mucking up the seat. Thanks
  8. hassy, Glad you said that about the seat. I was trying to wrap my head around how the rubber tip of the needle could wear out the brass seat. A guy in the sevice department at the local Honda/KTM shop told me that. As far as I could see the seat looked fine. Also the 6.5mm on the float height sounds much more in the ballpark to where mine is set at. I'll check it tomorrow. I first noticed the leaking when I was swaping main, and pilot jets. When I would screw the drain plug back on and turn the fuel on the fuel would start to pour out the bottom drain hose, and the one on the right side of the carb. After I would start the bike it would quite. But then I noticed it leaking when I was out riding when I stopped for a sec and I looked down and it was leaking then also. Plus since I got the bike one of the first thing I remarked about, was how bad the fuel economy was. Which makes sense if the fuel is poring out as I ride. Is there anything beside to high of a float level that would be causing the fuel to flow out the hoses? I thought the bike was jetted kind of odd when I got it. It came from sea level in Texas. I'm at 4,500 feet in Montana so I figured it would be running a bit rich. It had the stock main jet, 40 pilot, but the clip on the needle was on the number one, leanest top position. Thanks for the info.
  9. I have a 2007 300 XC-W, and gas pours out the over flow tube. I bought a rebuild kit and it seemed to fix the problem for a couple days. But now it's leaking again. I was hopping the rubber on the float valve was worn. Could the brass seat where the valve rest be worn? And if so is that fixable or is it new carb time? Also if the float height was way off could that cause it to leak gas? Everything I've read says the float height should be 16mm. My float barley reaches 16mm if you pull on it a little. Thanks
  10. The air screw in the Keihin PWK 36 on my KTM 300 xcw won't screw out any more than 1 3/4 turns. Any idea on what could be keeping it from screwing all the way out. Don't really want tp force it and maybe break it or strip the slot.
  11. The rebound adjuster on the top of the left fork leg won't seat, it just clicks forever. I'm new to WP forks. Could the needle on the end of the rod come unscrewed? Or is something broke? Help!
  12. The air screw on my KTM won't back out. It will screw out 1 3/4 turns and then stops and won't go any further. I'm afraid to force it. What could be holding it up? An o-ring? Thanks
  13. Thanks 57thorny. That seems like a pretty straight forward way to do it. I'm was looking to get a XCW, but I keep finding much better deals on used XCs.
  14. Does anyone know if the lower 1st and 2nd gears in the xcw model can be swapped into a xc model?
  15. Cool thanks for the reply. No we don't have the smog pump.
