  1. I just put a 38mm khiend pwk on my 17sx250 and its amazing now feels like the bike has fuel injection
  2. Wasn't noticeable, this bike has such good pull down low all i noticed was longer pull up top and more power mid-up
  3. I really like my prociuit works pipe with the r304 silencer a lot it works really well makes the bike pull up too a lot longer
  4. so much wrong but hey the dudes happy haha! literally makes no sense to me though....... my AER set up is rad, hitting big jumps pump up the pressure, going trail riding lower it - so simple
  5. HA a 06 yz over a 17sx450........ not a chance
  6. It's better everywhere... corners way more precise the yz's front end loved to put you on your face entering corners. it doesn't pull as long on top but the ktm is completely stock and the yz was far from. this could just be the ktm's midrange also being WAY stronger giving the feeling of less rev on top
  7. I just bought a 17sx used with 5 hours on it and saved about 2500 - comming off a yz250 with head mods and the carb dialed i was expecting this bike to run like shit stock as everyone says but it's honestly perfect i can't get it to burble or feel weird anywhere ..... really liking this new ktm
  8. Yeah always gonna be a gamble, good to see 75-100 hours I run in the B class and short shift the bike quite a lot (why I am leaning to a 290 kit not a 269) thats great I should be able to big bore it and get a bunch of good hours out of my motor then. I've never tried hot rods cranks with 75-100 hours on stock would you see these lasting longer? Have you tried the 290 without any cam work? thanks!
  9. Hey - ac717 , Wrong part for this post but I was wondering, with your 290 kit do you have the stock crank in the bike? What sort of hours are you expecting, I have a 2013 rmz250 with 18 hours on it currenttly.. looking for more power easier, then my 2013 kx250f I recently sold......
  10. 2013 kx250f with 49.9 hours on it, the best cheap mods for me have been a g2 quick turn throttle, PC backfire screen mainly to make sure the air box is clean when changing filters. As far as other things get a good skid plate and chain guide. I put a new piston in the bike at 34.9 hours and the stocker looked fine and still could have been used, installed a 14-1 hi comp piston and got a little more bottom out of the bike. Just ordered a drd ns-4 beuahe stocker is sounding horrird..
  11. How does the oil filter go in backwards, doesn't the spring have to go in the medal indendened side of the oil filter only the one way? How bad is the clyinder and piston still look re-usable i'd say that any small scratches or anything would be a no go. The valves and everything up there look ok?
  12. I ended up putting 34.9 hours on my bike before putting a new piston in it. The stock one that came out looked like it would have been fine for quite a while longer but how do you really know I guess. The bike was broken in hard and i've ran motul 300v since new. Valves were in spec, clutch is fine. Great bike so far
  13. tm designs chain guide! a skid plate, and a rebuilt kit if your a hard rider sooner then later
  14. G2 quick turn throttle, a hammer head shifter, good leavers and some rad guards..!
  15. Nah there loud i've found I now have 33 hours on my 13 kx250 and all is good, they like to warm up for a while and i'll hold the choke half way open for a little bit until I push it all the way in. Are you still running the stock plug, I swapped out to the white one and have left it since then.
