  1. Love my ktm 200 xcw. So nimble. But my xr 650l get me around town and to farther trail so easily. Great bike. Very good on the trail also. You should consider it. its heavy, but very cheap and reliable.
  2. My friend putted a 18 inch tube in a 21 inch tire once. It stretched but it never gave up.
  3. Primary drive is the way to go. Cheap and last very long.
  4. I own a ktm 200 xcw. Its very good in the wood. It got good low end power, strong mid-range and explosive top end. The power is very flexible. It very nimble and effortless to turn. It eat up single track all day. It flow very fast in the wood. Its a great bike for sure.
  5. Kenda 270 are oustanding
  6. I dont think tight budget and 250f go together. If your just going to be riding trail, get something else
  7. The stock chain is a standard chain. If you ride in dirty condition, it will need to be ajusted often. Like every 4-5 ride. Get a o-ring chain with it need replacement. Those last longer and need less ajustment.
  8. When I did my first top end on my ktm 200, some mark like that, but much less, appeared on my cylinder. They then disappeared and the bike still run good. I wouldnt worry too much.
  9. Ive got a 200cc ktm 2 stroke and I think it lack power. Go for the 250.
  10. Ive busted my knee pretty good wearing cheap knee pad. Couldnt ride for 5 months. Since, ive bought the leatt dual axis. These are great like many said.
  11. Thank you!
  12. Does the 38 mm carb fit straight on the 200 xcw? Thinking about giving it a go
  13. Never used them, but know a few guy that got there cylinder replated there. All were happy with it.
  14. My ktm 200 xcw piston was first changed at 97 hours. It could have gone longer some said. Its here The new one has 40 hours as of now. Still look good through the exhaust port. Plan to change it after 90 hours.
  15. Xr 650L. Heavy but can go anywhere an xr 250l can.
