    I'm gonna pm you a link to a thread I found over on KTMTalk. Check over there for the pm... According to AC, time to rebuild at .090", or 2.3mm. Measured at the top of the rod, not sliding the rod. Bottom fixed, rocking the rod parallel to crank (obviously).

    There's a beautiful one in W FL I believe on Facebook Marketplace. All white plastics, lots of goodies with it (as in a whole set of OEM plastics, even the bike carrier). It looks really nice. Somewhere in the '05-'07 range. I've been talking to him a little on there. Really nice guy and seems anal with his stuff. If I were there, I'd pick it up in a second. He's now dropped the price (but taking away the goodies) for anyone who wants it shipped. I believe it's $2800 shipped to you. If you pick it up, you get all the stuff with it for that price.

    Hey, I've only heard of that spec on KTMTalk. I'd love to see it in my manual though. It was told to my by shovelit. He told me Andrew was the one who came up with it, but it was all in the context of "I think". Same with the measurement I posted. Maybe contact Andrew personally? Actually, maybe I'll do it tomorrow. I'm about to pull the head off my 200 and send it out to be cut. Might as well check the big bearing if I'm in that far. I'll post here, or let you know via FB when I find out.

    38mm VS 36mm Carb + Lectron or Smart Carb

    I said the same to my wife about dirt bikes... 2 bikes back. And now I've got a wandering eye for a XTrainer.

    @poldies4 has a 38mm SC for sale. I know he also has an HV38 Lectron, but I don't know if it's for sale or not. 3 carbs for his new bike. Sheesh some guys have REAL problems

    This is one of the few times in the life of a 2t that cheaper is better. Use the ProX crank rebuild kit (less than $80 RMATV) and find a reputable shop to install it into your stock bottom. Andrew was moving his shop last summer and not rebuilding, so I searched locally. And you do have to search. Many places don't give attention to detail (even dealers) so you've got to learn to ask the right questions in order to weed them out. The guy I found charged me $55 labor for the crank rebuild, +$10 to remove the old inner race from the roller side and press a new race on. He even left it on his bench for me and showed me the run out: .0004" on one side, .0002" on the other (yes, that's less than 1/2 thou). KTM spec, I believe, is <.002", so well within spec. This is a much better option than the aftermarket kits. I would still call Cooksey regarding the bearings and top end kit. He sells the OEM roller bearing (also available at RMATV) but I believe he prefers the Koyo ball bearing for the other side. I think he's had better success with the Koyo for longevity. At 190 hrs though, I wouldn't get too anxious. You should still have a good bit of life in your crank. Andrew also has developed a spec for checking the lower (big end) needle bearing play. I believe it's .019" side to side rock. Someone may want to chime in on that in case I'm wrong.

    I've found that bikes with "issues" are usually the result of poor maintenance, jetting and the like. I find certain things about KTM superior to the Jap bikes. For the most part, not much difference between 2 stroke makers. Just a little better design with Euro IMO. Weight distribution being what I noticed the most.
  8. Yeah I really wanted to try a trials tire. I have one. Well, trials-ish. A Maxxis that comes stock on the Freeride. But it's really muddy here. I started a thread on KTMTalk about it. The consensus seems to be that I'll hate it in the mud. I wish we were drier here. On dry rocks, a trails tire gets stupid traction.

    This is not meant to be a mean post. But IMO anyone who insists on a Japanese bike for the woods needs to ride a Euro bike before limiting himself. I say this because I use to feel the same. It took riding my 200 XC approximately 3 minutes in the woods to realize how wrong I was. The difference was shocking. If I were taller, I'd be on a 250, or maybe even 300 Euro bike. Although the XTrainer is very tempting. It's the cost that limits me.
  10. And I'm very anxiously anticipating my next mod to install. I have a new Tubliss system in the basement. But it's 10° out and snowing. So that'll have to wait. If all the hype is true, it might quickly become my favorite.
  11. For me, pretty much love most of my mods. For right now, what stands out is the Midwest clutch lever. Reduced my pull to 1 finger. Also, my Hyde skid plate/pipe guard combo, as it allowed me to revert back to and protect my stock pipe. And it allowed me to removed my most disappointing mod - FMF Gnarly.
  12. I don't blame you. IMO busted up wheels are the biggest enemy to a bike's looks. Don't know why, maybe because of the black. Having a nice set of rims in the future will go far in freshening it up looks-wise when you choose. I have a spare front wheel from my boy's 200. PO was a waste with maintenance. Let the roached-out bearings seize and wiped the hub. Even though it's in good shape, I'm gonna start looking to see what powder coating will cost me. Nice 300 btw 👍

    How many of you follow 60:1 premix in ktm manual?

    Lol I guess I'm the dunce now! I'm far from mathematically impaired, so I can't for the life of me figure out why I had 16 oz in my mind. Guess I've gotten lazy having been given a Ratio Rite a couple years ago.

    Haha sorry. Didn't mean to come across upset. I wasn't. But there were actually several posts before yours that took me seriously. I figured the guy who called me Einstein would've realized I was joking when I said I mixed one quart of oil to one gallon of gas. My (apparent) poor humor was based on the member who said he mixes 40:1, using 1/2 quart to 5 gallons. That is actually 80:1. I think I need to work on my delivery lol
