    Flushing out the gear case

    Hi guys.. so I ran into a bit of a problem. I had stripped the threads in the case today where the bolt to check the oil goes. I noticed it when I checked the oil and and when I went to put the bolt back in it would catch, and then eventually just spin. So I removed the bolt and there was metal shavings in the threads of the bolt. Long story short, I re-tapped it and now the new bolt fits snug. The problem is that there are metal shavings inside of the case, and i need to flush those out. I was told kerosene, but that sounds like a terrible idea. Any better ideas? Oil? If so what kind? Thanks, Chris- 2007 KTM 200 XC-W

    Float bowl issue or something else?

    I have a 200 XC-W and my bike had been doing that also. I had come to the conclusion that the float in the bowl was stuck in the carb. No big deal. Multiple people told me that that was the diagnosis and that is what I had come up with through research. Gas would run out the drain tube because since the float was stuck , there was nothing stopping the gas running straight through the carb and out the tube. It was only happening when you were near idle speed, because any other time you were on the throttle and your engine was using the gas in the carb- which equals no gas in the carb just sitting there to overfill and run out. Two things you can do to get rid of this problem. One, take your carb apart and give it a good cleaning, because there might be some grime or a piece of something in there causing your float to stick. The second, as harsh as this sounds, is take a wrench, hammer, screw driver, etc. to knock on the side of your carb when this problem is occuring. NOT HARD THOUGH! All this does is knock the float loose. (This is what I had done until it did it no more) If that doesn't help, lay your bike down on its side and try it again. If all else fails, replace the float. Hope this helps.

    Leaky Hydraulic Clutch

    Hi guys.. I own a 2007 KTM 200 XC-W which I am deeply in love with! But I have two issues. The first and most important is this: My hydraulic clutch leaks black fluid onto the clutch lever. I have no idea what it is, because the resovoir is still full. Every now and then I will walk out into the garage and there will even be a drip or two on the floor. Is there an explanation? I know that the KTM's are notorious for a leaky slave, but I'm no mechanical expert. Could this be the reason? My bike has no problem shifting at all. The only issue is that when I am in gear with my bike turned off on a hill, it will roll every so slighty. But it is noticable, and catches my attention. Is this a completely different subject? The second issue is that during this past summer I had a sticky float, and gas would run straight out the drain tube. But it doesnt stick anymore. I guess I should take it apart and clean it really good just to be safe? Thanks guys.
