  1. Im not sure if there is a suggested height but Ive ran mine flush with the top clamp for 4 years now with no issues.
  2. She sounds like a keeper! I can't complain about mine either.
  3. I've got the Gnarly on my 200, works mint for singletrack riding. Nice smooth power down low and I find that I didn't loose much on top. Depends on how much time you spend jetting I guess as I suspect people who are losing alot up top might not have the jetting sorted out near perfect, just a thought.
  4. NICE!!!!
  5. I'd say piston return spring... when did you check it last?
  6. Usually you can get them out of the clutch side after removing the gears from the crank. Seals wear out over time and get brittle. Bearing should be ok. To check if the seal is bad change your transmission oil and top up with 700 ml of oil. Go for a good ride and drain the oil. 700 ml should come out, any less and its likely being sucked into the engine by the crank seal as long as you have no external leaks.
  7. I'd say your muffler bearings are shot. Check that the oscillating somuflange is in good shape too while your in there.
  8. Anyone who tells you that a bike shouldn't idle or was not meant to is full of $hit. My bike is jetted perfect though the range and will idle for days. All the bikes I've ever owned have idled just fine once jetted and adjusted.
  9. Change your transmission oil and make sure you put in 700ml. When you change it out measure the old oil and see how much there is, should be 700ml. If its way down and there are no external leaks its likely your crank seal.
  10. Tore apart the swingarm to clean and grease the swingarm bearings. Also need some wheel bearings and chain and sliders.
  11. I've got the stock KTM headlight assembly and while it looks good the light output is disappointing. Its enough to get you home if your caught out in the dark but not enough for serious night riding. http://www.pmxtec.com/ makes an upgrade kit that brightens it up nicely.
  12. Check and see if your clutch side crank seal is leaking. When they leak the engine will suck in transmission oil and gum the engine up. Enough of it and the bike wont run right. Also check your jetting
  13. I run the Ironman sprockets front and rear, they will outlast many chains. Very good stuff, seems to be made of Kryptonite.
  14. I used an MT43 all this season on my KTM 200, worked great. Usually aired up to 8 psi. Still looks new after 700km. Traction with them is great, but with any trials tire leaning hard in corners and slash type riding sucks.
  15. Nice work!
