    KTM 250XCFW Fork help

    I actually tried close to that yesterday. Removed 2 of the 24.1shims. Was much better. I found a thread on KTM Talk about 07-08 BV stacks. http://ktmtalk.com/showthread.php?t=275334&highlight=trail+trick&page=5 I'm going to try one of there stacks when I get the shims. It is BV Stack 24.1 x 2 14.1 x 1 18.1 x 1 24.1 x 3 22.1 x 2 20.1 x 2 18.1 x 1 16.1 x 1 14.1 x 1 11.1 x 1 8.5.3 x 1 14.1 x 1 18.25 x 1 Not sure if this will be better or worse but it only cost he a few dollars in shims to try. There is also a couple threads about mid valve and rebound stack but rather just mess with the BV right now. http://ktmtalk.com/showthread.php?t=489700 http://ktmtalk.com/showthread.php?t=311215&highlight=Go-Ride Thanks for your help mog

    please help 08 ktm 505 xcf

    I have an 08 250XCFW and I think it's a perfect trail bike. A friend of mine rides a 06-07 525 EXC and it's a beast. He's a very good rider and it's a handful at times.

    Thanks, I'll stick with the Spectro as I can get it 5 minutes down the road anytime.

    What brand of fork oil is everyone using in WP forks? I see Slaven Racing uses Maxima but I have to go out of town to get it and need some quick. Local shop has Spectro.

    Lots. 240lbs in street clothes
  15. Hi, I just bought a 08 250XCFW with very low hours on it. Love the bike, how it turns but is very very rough over small woops roots etc. I'm quite over weight for the springs, . My thoughts are I'm blowing though the plush valving into the the stiffer valving. If I had stiffer springs it would be using the flush part of he valving. Sound righ or am I way off? P.S.I have already resprung the rear
