    School Me on the KTM200XC-W

    You can download a copy of the manual from KTM. http://www.ktm.com/globalassets/product-manuals-pim-data/enduro/200-exc-2015/f7203o6/dok_bike_bed_en.pdf
  2. I'm not sure I understand. Did you offer $400 or did he? If you offered $400 and he accepted, then you've already bought yourself a motorcycle. If $400 is his offer on the table, go get the bike before someone else does. Things on Craigslist can get snapped up fast if the price is good. I can't believe you would start negotiating before you've even seen the bike, but it's hard to go wrong at that price. I guess if it's not a done deal yet, check it out in person and be sure the frame is not cracked or what not. Even that can be repaired.
  3. Grease was my guess. Had the same problem on my KLX250. I put grease on it, but it wanted moar.

    Klx 250s dual sport help please!

    arrow, I have the Q4, Megabomb, Stage 2 Dynojet (128 main jet + needle), and the snorkel removed. I think it's about a 20% improvement in power. A few weeks ago, I totally smoked a friends WR250R from a red light. That's just peak power near max RPM. At moderate RPMs, where you actually ride, it's much more than 15 or 20%. The bike really comes alive. And on the highway, less stuttering and popping, and no pop-pop-pop on decel. The exhaust is ~$550. Most of it is probably in the muffler itself, but mine all went on at once, so I can't say. The jetting kit is $50, and is essential if you upgrade the exhaust and open the airbox. Removing your airbox snorkel is free. Your bike will run cooler, be less cold-natured on startup (less choke needed), and be more fun. On the minus side, your mileage will drop by about 20%
