    Rear Brake Trouble

    You just need to be careful bleeding. Make sure you are adding in fluid before it’s to low in the Reservoir. That will allow air to enter the brake line. On the caliper attach a 12-18” rubber hose to the bleeding nipple the other end goes into a small container with about 2” of brake fluid in it. Pump the brake hold down lever open nipple then close then release lever. Check fluid reservoir level and top off if needed. Continue until you have no indication of air bubbles and have flushed line with approximately 4-5 ounces of new fluid. Your bike has low hours and bleeding should take care of this soft spongy feel. Been working on bikes since I was 10 with my dad I am now 60... hope I haven’t been doing it wrong all these years lol. Take your time be patient.

The exposed boot buckles are a problem in small shrubs and foot pegs shift levers brake levers.... In the boot sucks.... over the boot is the way to go you may have the bike and gear that don't mean you can ride Mr. Pointdexter

    Okay, what's up with Rotella oil in KTM motors?

    Do you or anyone you know work for Shell oil company.. sounds like your on the payroll pushing product.. your so concerned about what oil goes in every body's bike... the big selling point is the cost...my Uncle works for Shell Oil in Holland he states it "meets" the standard set by JASCO MA... now as for as extreme use lubricants will that's when the game change starts. Change up to a specialty oil if you like. Oil has 3 items it must do 1 cool, 2 clean and 3 lubricate take one item away and it will not perform same with a fire eliminate fuel, heat or oxygen fire is extinguished. I use Motorex 10-50 currently in my 2013 KTM 250 xcf-w. Change oil frequently if in doubt...But use a JASCO MA spec oil. you can buy a new car from 14,000.00 -230,000.00 the choice is yours.. they will get you from point A to point B.

    Convert Mx to comp woods bike

    Well there is a rider here who rides a 2007 crf250r stock and smokes any 2t & 4t 200,250,300 on very tech trails and single track. Its the rider mostly, if the extra components help you increase your ability to ride then you have purchased the correct component for your bike. A young boy came to our mx track on an old thrashed xr400 and asked if he could take a few laps i said yeah go ahead... this kid cleared all the jumps in style like a pro! Everyone in the pits with their 5,000.00 aftermarket bling added to their bikes all shut up as to what their bike needed for them be a better faster rider as they all watched in aww as a POS Honda XR 400 embarrasses them. A,B,C or whatever.... same bike different rider = different results
