    Are there any LED options for wiring up my 40watt 2007 200 XC-W? I don't need huge light, but it would be nice to have, and it increases the resale a little bit.

    AMA CBD Statement

    Yep, pretty interesting! I've read this is why they've seen CBD have positive effects on chemo? It prevents some cell death for regular stuff but also slows down processing of the chemo to a degree that improves its efficacy. Crazy if true.

    I'd look less at "PC" and "micro offend" and say someone big who sponsors them doesn't want CBD sponsors. Lots of the PC snowflake crowd smoke tons of weed

  5. Check to make sure the power valve won't contact the piston or go into the cylinder in general too. The linkage wears. I ground mine down to clear.

    Power valve linkage on 98 rm125

    Absolutely effects performance, as well as you'll have a dancing piece of metal in your clutch area which will quickly explode I would imagine. You don't need to split the cases, just pop the clutch cover off. I had to do a new gasket for mine unfortunately since I replaced the kickstart spring.

    Spring/valving question

    Yeah my 200 XCw has like 4.0 springs in it, and it seems dodgy even at 150 pounds.

    Power valve linkage on 98 rm125

    If you take the side clutch case off you can access it, I'm pretty sure. Just OH'd a 96 RM125 Clean your bike before working on it, and put a GD towel in your crank case! ha ha ha

    I always drain my carb before putting the bike out but it will usually still start a few days later if I do forget. Maybe your float is a little too high?

    You mean after its been sitting with old fuel in the carb? Or regular riding

    Thanks! Remembered my fork seal is leaking, so tore it apart. Shims coming from Slavens & SDI so I can patch them both back together. Revalve BV & MV, hope it works. Borrowed some ideas from trail tricks stacks on ktmtalk, and what I already thought would work. Delta shims were already bent after 140 hours so doing a few bushings, some seals, some shim replacement & shuffle.

    2007 KTM 200 XC-W O/C Fork revalve

    I was thinking of *decreasing* the float to make the MV engage "sooner" but with a smaller overall damping set on the MV. Maybe I'll leave that for now and see the rest.
  13. Found these to be too soft on small stuff, and super harsh and / or bottoming on bigger hits, and a stiff middle hit (downhill moderate speed roots, etc) Essentialy, too plush on tiny chatter, too stiff on mid/high speeds Was thinking of softening the mid valve by 1 face shim, but also tighten up the float by a touch (I haven't measured it yet, but whatever is smallest change), and move 1 24 x .1 from the HS back stack on the BV to the LS face shims, so that it stands up higher initially, but mid stroke damping kicks in faster, but isn't as harsh. FYI this is stock; checked on KTM's legacy info: They went to a straight tapered stack for the base valve a couple years later after changing to the 20mm, would that translate over? I could build a tapered stack based off the original base valve, but not sure what they were really doing with the BV stack here, attempting a "HS" two stage? I'm wondering if I'm hitting high speeds that the MV is blowing thru, or if Its engaging and that's what I feel. Redo BV first, and test? EDIT: WOW it did not copy and paste right.

I'm 150 pounds, don't like how the forks dive into their travel or clank against larger trail chatter. Almost went over the bars on a weird blow thru / hydro lock situation last summer. If anyone want to feed this into Restackor for me, I don't have $80 for it.

    I really would like to just get replacement steel plates and then run OEM friction plates but it seems hard to find. Edit: I can get Hinson plates & frictions through my distro, they seem to be steel. Probably the best bet

    Yeah I think the fibers are good, its lasted this long, but I would like to ditch the aluminum plates just cause the oil looks so ugly
