    Is this Sprocket OK?

    Hmm, ok so I'll replace all; the front, rear and chain. Question about the chain, the stock is listed as 118 links. I have a 13T front and 49T rear. Not sure if that is stock gearing or not. Would the 118 work? Also I just ride woods and single track, is this gear set-up good for that? Duh - I guess I can just count the links of the chain on the bike.

    Excellent. Thanks for the news on the rear sprocket. I'll grab a front and a new chain. Hmm, I did check the chain tension when I first got it and it was set where it should be. I got this bike use so at some point in it's life, it could've be run tight. Also checked the counter shaft end play while I was in there, it's well within spec which I guess is good news - lol

    Ok so I'm pricing up front and rear sprockets and a chain. The rear looks like a Supersprox Stealth although it's branded with a KTM logo. Did they supply to KTM? I'd like to replace with what's on there. Which type of chain should I go with? I know about o-ring and I just read about x-ring which is supposedly better.

    Yeah that's just crud from when my counter shaft seal was acting as an automatic chain oiler.
  5. I had a leak at my counter shaft and I had to change the seals. With the past couple of broken chain and broken case posts on here, I want to make sure my sprockets look ok. Do these look ok to still run? They look pretty good to me but this is my first dirt bike and I want to be sure. I am running a case saver too but I'd rather not have a chain break. Thanks!

    Freshened up my 2000 CR250

    Geez you work clean. I don't even want to go in my garage after seeing those pics. Nice work!

    Possible DIY fix or just send it out?

    Awhile back, I watched these in case I needed to fix mine. Might help.

    08 450 XCF

    Hi, I am new to KTM/dirtbikes as well. I recently got the smaller brother of yours 2008 250 XCF. I asked the same question as the Motorex is crazy expensive. It seems like most here and others on the internet like Rotella. T4 or T6. I've been using the T4 and it seems to be working well. Everything seems to be running well.
  9. The low seat will help. I just got an XCF(First KTM/dirtbike as an adult @ 50 yo) 5'8" and a 30" inseam. I thought how the heck am I going to ride this thing. Got the low seat rode it some on my back property trails first time out, I dropped it a bunch, boy that was a workout. Second time dropped it less, now after a handful of times out, I am much more comfortable and I don't notice the height as much.
  10. Get a Ford truck, they have keypad entry. I have an Expedition and I never carry my keys. But that's quite a leap from wearing a backpack ;-) Or just wear a key around your neck on a ball chain or string.

    New guy, old/ish bike

    The mobile stand is from Harbor Freight. I have one. It works well for a harbor freight item. I use it on my KTM, Just used it on my Scag lawnmower and I think it will come in handy when I install a 3" lift kit on my wife's jeep.

    What next?

    That's a nice looking XR200! This is great! Thanks everyone for taking the time to answer my questions and provide awesome advice!

    What next?

    Awesome! Thank you all for your advice. I just got a 2008 KTM XC-F that he says he will get when he's big enough - lol. I asked him what I will ride? He said I can buy a newer bike at that point. Love how they can spend our money. I will look for a CRF150F/KLX140L/TTR125LE/DRZ-125L. Not sure a MX bike will be suitable for where we ride. Thanks again, I will keep my eye out.

    He's already learning a little about the difference between the 2 and 4 stroke. His friends come over and ride for hours. I heard him talking to his friend with the KTM 105. They were talking about this decent we have on one trail. His 2-stroke friend said make sure your using your brakes on that downhill. My son said what brakes, I just put it in 3rd and ride down with no throttle. He asked me about that and I told them it's the engine braking of a four stroke. Thanks for all of the suggestions so far, the KX100 looks good if I can get him on a 2-stroke or maybe a CRF150F if he insists on a 4-stroke.
