    KTM 450 EXC-R Race Tech Suspension

    I just had Race Tech put the new generation of Gold Valves, .48 fork springs and a progressive rear spring on my 09 450XCW. Wow, what a difference over stock. The front end doesnt nose dive anymore and it handles great. I'm very happy with the results.

    My 09 250sx??

    That's strange. Have you consulted your dealer? If it happens on a continues basis, I would have to say your stator is on the blink.

    Converting a 250 sx for woods/HS?

    I'm riding an 08 250SX in the woods and it is way better then my 07 250XC. The xc was a good bike, but the SX is lighter, has better power and in my opinion is a better woods bike the the XC. It just depends on what you are looking for. To make a SX woods ready, you don't have to do much.
  5. I have a 08 250SX and ride Cross Country with it and it rocks. Plenty of usable power everywhere I want it. I had a 250XC last year and I prefer the SX. Either way you won't go wrong.

    Stock pipe for KTM 2 stroke

    I put a FMF factory Fatty on on 07 250XC and was not happy with it. It hung down lower then the stock pipe and caught every rock around and it made the bike all top end. I ended up spending the money and getting another stock piep from the dealer. If you need to get your stock pipe fixed Pacific Crest Pipe repair does great work.

    Ktm Background question?

    Powersport Grafx makes a great product. You can get standard prints or they can make something custom for you. Great people to deal with and the prices are resonable. www.ridepg.com

    Results from Endurocross?

    Knight acted like a fool and should be embarrassed or his actions. He launched his bike over the tires without knowing who or what was on the other side because he lost. Boo Hoo! He could have seriously hurt or killed someone by that childish move. Knight is supposed to be a champion and he should act like one even when he gets beat. Taddy outrode Knight and earned that win. I watched every lap and Knight took a bad line and Taddy got him. Hopefully the AMA will step in and penalize Knight. Great job by Taddy!

    gas oil ratio

    40:1 Maxima K2. No spooge, plugs look great and the bike rips. Get your jetting squared dialed in and the spooge should go away.

    250exc - do you love yours?

    I have a 07 250XC and absolutly love it! The bike has more then enough power, handles well and is light enought to flick it around in the woods. I wouldn't trade it for any thumper.

    What kind of oil are you using and what Ratio? 40:1 is a good place to start. Sounds like you kmight need to do a little jetting work also.
