  1. I hope so
  2. Thanks Ernie. Been trawling this forum and KTMTalk for info, but can't seem to find anyone who has made the switch. The carby fits, it's the brass that is the puzzle. Told my pal to order a selection of jets and needles from the latest spec 200 jetting table.
  3. Anyone running a 36mm Keihin on the 150s? Friend of mine switched to one and needs some base jetting suggestions. I'm wondering if the 2016 200 XC-W settings would work as a starting point and we can fine tune from there
  4. I fitted a Domino throttle to my 2017 250 XC-W. I also fitted an S-1 needle jet
  5. Jetting is never a one size fits all exercise. I also run the JD kit, but I had to make a couple of small adjustments to get it spot on where I wanted it
  6. Check that your carb's breather hoses are in good shape and not melted or clogged closed. A melted hose caused that problem on my old my Husaberg TE300
  7. For me the bigger issue is whether your air filter is sealing properly. Check the lower right side of the filter by trying to get your fingers into the airbox around the edge of the filter. Had a massive gap on mine
  8. Knee braces for me! POD K300, won't ride without them. Have saved me from serious injury a few times
  9. Fitted SAMCO hoses, a billet water pump impeller and a JD Jetting kit. Awaiting my VForce4 reeds!
  10. Why not get it to an engineering shop and get them to weld it up?
  11. Pilot jet is too big. Buy a couple smaller sizes and experiment. Jetting chart in the manual should be a good place to start
  12. I've been using the Mitas C-18 yellow stripe and Mitas C-19 / C-21 yellow stripe with Tubliss very successfully. My new bike came with the Metzeler 6 Day Extreme, which also seem to work very well with Tubliss as the carcass is extremely stiff
  13. Hyde has a carbon protector as does Carbonteck
  14. I'm going to put a few ml of ATF in the stator side of the motor on my 250 XC-W. Can see it hurting anything
    Protects cases and slave cylinder if the chain breaks. Saved my old KTM in the past. Well made and easy to fit
