    Is it too picky to ask a dealer when you’re buying a brand new bike to give you one that’s fresh out of the crate instead of the showroom model? Asking since my buddy will be buying a brand new Yamaha YZ450F and is worried about buying the showroom model since the last showroom model he bought had a bent radiator, bent rim, and a cracked subframe and air box. Luckily he discovered all this before riding it and after getting home. The dealer did end up fixing and replacing all those but it took awhile to get all the parts. (Bike was a 2013 KTM 450 XC-F)

    Questions about using a High Compression Piston

    Only reason I am using 97 octane is because it’s REC fuel and contains no ethanol. But thanks for the advice everyone, looks like I won’t be adding a higher comp piston
  3. As the title suggests, I've been debating the idea of throwing in a high compression piston. It will bump the compression in my 2014 KTM 350 XC-F from 13.5:1 to 14:1. First and foremost my main question is, because I live under 1000 ft and usually run 97 octane REC gas, will I have to change the fuel I run or not? Also, will I have to change out the cams to aftermarket and re-time the whole motor and ignition? I guess I really don't know what to expect so any advice will definitely help! Attached below is a photo of the bike I plan on putting it in.

    My 2014 KTM 350 XC-F with all my sponsors, and the custom kit done by DecalMX.
  5. I absolutely hate seeing people on fast flowing trails and have to lock up my brakes in a nice straight away due to some squib who can't get out of 2nd gear. Then to piss you off even more he doesn't pull over to let you around but expects you to somehow get around him. and all the while is spraying you with roost cuz he revs his bike up and then slows way down. Those kind of people really pisses me off. Also, I hate the people who go the wrong directions on trails, when they are clearly marked where you should enter, and that this area is the exit. Those people really grind my gears, and 9 times out of 10 it's the quad riders that make this mistake. I can't tell you how many times I've either head on collided with them, or just barely missed them, yet they're the ones that yell at me and flip me off for almost hitting them.

    Removing decal adhesive from forks?

    I usually pour a little bit of goof off on a shop rag and put some elbow grease into it

    Wash riding pants?

    I usually wash everything (gloves, jersey, pants, and helmet pad inserts) all at once in the washing machine on heavy duty and hang to dry. Been doing that for years and nothing bad has happened
  8. I just stumbled across a hell of a deal on a brand new FMF Megabomb for a 2014 KTM 350 SX-F. However, I have a 2014 KTM 350 XC-F, and on the ad it says the pipe fits the SX-F models but says nothing about fitting the XC-F. Does anyone know if the head pipes on the SX-F's and XC-F's are interchangeable? I assume they would be since they are identical motors, but I don't want to order it and be SOL.

    AMA Numbers

    Does anyone know how to, or if you can, change your AMA number? The race number, not the full thing.

    2005 200 EXC

    Yeah I had one on my ‘10 250 XC. They really rob the top end power, but give an awesome punch down low.
  11. Like the title asks, will a 2014 Husaberg FE350 Clutch & Brake Levers Fit on a 2014 KTM 350 XC-F? I found a great deal on some MSR front brake and clutch levers and was wondering if they would fit on the KTM, as Husaberg and KTM are virtually identical. Thanks

    New expansion chamber arrived today. Rust on the inside

    That’s normal for brand new 2 stroke pipes. I ordered one directly from FMF and received the same thing and I was pissed like you. I called them and they told me it was normal and once some exhaust flows through it, the unburnt oil will stick to the walls and it’ll be fine

    Got mine on AOMC’s website. They’re a replica of the factory edition graphics, but won’t let you buy the factory edition graphics unless you have one and can prove it by providing a vin number.

    Front Brake Rotor Gouge

    Just found the culprit. The fork seal was leaking just a tad and it must’ve got on the brake pads. Solved the leaky forks. For the brake pads, will I have to completely replace or would spraying them down with brake cleaner and drying them off then running them on the brush wheel solve that problem or will I have to replace completely?
