    new pictures of the 07 ktms

    I'm a honda man but I must say... KTM makes the most beautiful bikes.
  3. I've used hondabrite before but I remember some people talking about a better cleaner on the forums a while back. Just wondering what it was called.
  4. Does octane rating really matter cause I just had a discussion with a person and they said that 85 octane is no different from 91 and that putting in premium is a waste of money. Keep in mind I'm not just talking about motorcycles but for cars as well. I've always put premium in my motorcyles AND cars.

    jetting on an '01 cr125

    Ok I just got done changing to main jet from a 370 to a 350 to compensate for the hotter temperatures. Keep in mind this was my first time ever rejetting myself. I screwed out the jet needle thing and screwed in the new main jet into that. Then I screwed in the needle thing all the way. Now the bike won't idle and it did before I changed jets. After looking in the manual it says that for my area the needle clip should be in the second position, does that mean that I shouldn't have screwed in the needle all the way? thanks in advance.

    Jetting question

    snorkel removed, uni air filter, less restrictive baffle. The jet isn't clogged the carb is squeeky clean The last time I jetted was when I didn't have the new baffle or air filter

    Jetting question

    Well today I got my XR started up and rode it around the block easy a few times to get it hot. Now when I open the throttle too fast the engine will bog down and die. So by my calculations I should go one size leaner on the main jet correct? Or should I screw in the fuel screw a little bit?

    Mixing ratio?

    I know that rich/lean means the jets. I was referring to it as a premix though. I wasn't referring to it as a way to rejet.

    Mixing ratio?

    ummm whoever said that 32:1 means it is 32% is soooo wrong. 40:1 is LEANER

    Who is the Worst Dealer Ever???

    Monarch Honda in Utah County.... they overcharge. Not to mention that they lied by telling my dad and I that our trailblazer could handle the weight of a hitch mounted carrier for two bikes. Turns out that we were going about 250 lbs. over how much our hitch was rated. Steadman's in Tooele, UT is by far the best I've ever been too. Great service, friendly, and good prices.
