    2019 KTM 350 EXC-F power mods

    de-smog all the crap. get a FMF slip-on , skid plate , change gearing , XC-W taillight/fender combo , carbon pipe guard ,blinker/controls/relay delete , acerbis mirror (1) , larger fuel filter ,Reed Delete , quick turn throttle cam , steering damper and most important get the Vortex ! that should do it unless you add Tubliss for some sticky riding

    Looking for a be for a new to me bike

    12K miles jeez my bike would be a wreck. I go 3 years regardless of miles and sell before value drops. this way I get to try out all the new goodies as they evolve , suspension has seen the biggest gains in comfort and performance over just 5 years ago then add EFI , Bingo ! its a winner. cant wait to get my new 300i

    Carb issues

    at that altitude you should get a bike with EFI then all the crap your going through now will become history you don't want to repeat

    Why is EXC running too lean again?

    dump the plumbing ! save it for the guy who buys your bike "used one owner"

    18 exc 500

    that's a great question and it makes laugh my ass off. think about all those noisey ground pounding HD's out there. cops wont notice you unless your hanging a wheelie through downtown. ive been riding KTM dirt-bikes with a plate , fake mirror and a NiCad battery to power my tail light since 1997 but as long as the regi is good your cool. my 17 500 lost 4.5 lbs of garbage a week after I bought it and has been everywhere without a hitch. got pulled over on the 405 in OC one day for speeding , the cop said "you know how fast you were going ?" I sad "full throttle" about 83 mph I estimated quietly. he looked at the bike 1988 XT 350 and told me to be careful and no ticket. Vortex makes the 500 come to life

    EXC 500 tire size

    that combo size is same as mine 2017 500, I use the Tubliss system to lock the bead and rim the rear is Kenda Parker DT at 4 psi front is Goldentyre Fatty at 8 psi been running this for about a year on second set of rubbers with same tubliss have had 0 flats and they stick to everything just by adjusting psi

    Oh my God RAIN

    no-kidding its a blessing from the off-road gods
  8. sounds like a dirty carb or air leak
  9. at 140hrs it needs a going through , whats the drain plug, oil filter and magnet look like ? open the airbox and wipe your finger around looking for grit.

    2009 KTM 450 exc

    3K is a good price if the miles are correct , what is the hours, should be around 80hrs at 2500miles unless it was a commuter ? this is a good bike but if its backfiring and popping on decel it might need a ecu upgrade like Vortex and all the smoggy crap sent packing. gearing is another issue the EXC's are geared too high so I swap to 14/52 or 13/50 I ride the '17 500 and put it on a dirt only diet and it lost 8lbs of wasted street stuff and now its as agile and fun to ride as my '15 300XC. needs a steering damper also

    its hard to ride my 500 with other brands because they always need water or tow from boil-over. I was an XR600 guy and Scott was my Hero after I saw him deadlift the XR600 it immediately made me realize its not the bike . sure miss that big fat cushy seat on those beasts, felt like a couch compared to the new bikes
  15. those bikes were heavy and had issues save your $$$ and get something from 2012 or newer
