  1. Crf250 said it well. Also, a bearing puller tool Will help a ton. Very important to make sure Everything is clean before installing new bearings.
  2. I put the RK tech on my 2017 300xc. Its thee best upgrades for a 2T. My 300 has more power everywhere, even the top end stretched out. Also gave it more torque that feels like a 4t but without the engine braking. I would highly recommend this to anyone racing or someone just wanting more power. I swapped out the red spring for the yellow and turned out the spring so it's flush. Best set up for traction and throttle control. Red spring made the traction break too easily. ­čĹŹ
  3. P3 is my choice. Lighter than aluminum and you won't have rust issues.
  4. I haven't found a free download here either. Best best would be to contact the nearest ktm and purchase the manual on a CD. Its only 10-15$ and you have a hard copy. Good luck!
  5. I agree with demi. Go with the xc. You might consider newer...2011-14. That's a night vs day difference from an 07.
  6. I tried the fmf snap and had disappointing results. No noticable power gain and it certainly wasn't worth $100.
  7. Go to the OEM section at rmatv. They should have them available.
  8. Personally I feel these things are junk. Not surprised it doesn't fit. I would be hesitant using one in fear of getting h20 in the carb. I place a "slightly" damp paper towel in the opening, folded in a square shape. This will catch any accidental debris from entering the boot. Just my .02
  9. I change my oil after 0.008 hrs. I change my air filter every time I look at it. My exhaust fluid is changed and flushed after 1.4 hrs. [emoji6] Really, 6-10hrs for oil changes depending on how hard you rode and the conditions. Its different for each rider. There's no magic universal hour for oil changes.
  10. most mix ratios in the owners book are at sea level. my sons bike says 32:1 but we live here in CO and I run all our bikes at 50:1.
  11. hi there. I ride every weekend at least once. this weekend looks too cold but next should be fine. Pm me and we can get something planned soon.
  12. Hey redrider. Just curious...how did your stock reeds look when you took it off?
  13. You're right. Saying I'm going over to a blue bike next year is a bit extreme. After dialing in this 17 I wouldn't want anything else. Although I did have a Yamaha back in the Bradshaw days and it was a solid yz250. But its not a ktm300 and there's nothing like it!
  14. You should be able to find some options on rmatv.com
  15. I apologize if I've offended anyone by this post. As I mentioned the last 3 new ktms I've purchased have been flawless. I haven't had any issues. I'm not bashing ktm. I like ktm hence my decision to purchase another. I don't buy ktm for kickstands or estarters, however, I haven't had a problem with my past estarters and I take off the kickstands immediately so I can't comment on how well they hold up. I became accustomed to the quality I've had in past ktm models and I guess I expected the same on the 17. A bad reed cage off the floor isn't something i would expect based on my past experiences. Guess I was lucky with other models as I didn't have any negatives. So I'm not trying to bash ktm in any way. I'm just bitching. Problem has been fixed. I tested the bike yesterday and it was perfect!
