    KTM 300 - two ignition maps?

    post may be a litttle late but i used the wr light switch only cost $20 and works / looks great theres not a massive power difference or i should say there is not power gain just different delivery, the power band comes on a little harder it just seems to rev a little quicker. still cool to use!!!

    KTM 2 strokes past 2007 ?

    I just bought a 07 300 exc from the biggest ktm dealer in Australia, he told me they have sold heaps of 2 strokes. He seems to think they are coming back..... well at least in the enduro side of things.

    questions on the 07 motovert 110.

    I bought a 07 motovert 110 for my son and notice that after a while of riding the thing seems to get very hot is this normal ? if not is there n e thing i can do? also i think the air filter sucks, what do you do with the thing when washing the bike? should the filter be oiled?? are there any must do mods? not after nasty replies i realize I'm very new to the pit bike world. any advice is appreciated. thanks heaps in advance.

    taming the yz 85 ??

    thanks for the advice. what do you suggest?? I checked out the crf 150 but they are way to heavy I dunno but the ttr 125 may get boring after a while. pit bike ?? dunno again.

    taming the yz 85 ??

    how much did that change it??? How big is he? My son learned on a TT-R125 for a year at age 11 and I bought him the YZ when the '06 came out last November. He is about 5' tall. Took him about a week (riding every other day or so) to get used to it. not sure how tall, an average slim 10 yr old.

    taming the yz 85 ??

    just curious I'm about to buy my son another bike his last bike was a jr80 and i was wanting to get him a yz85, yeah a huge step. he isn't a really ballsy go nuts kid and am worried the bike will intimidate him and make him not wanna ride. i have tried to talk him outta that decision into maybe a ttr125 or crf150. maybe even a pit bike but he is dead keen on one is there anything you can do to settle the beast down maybe a fww???

    300exc 2 stroke hit??

    would you have to go as far as to do a head mod to get the mx snap?? would the lighter fw & powervalve spring do the trick or would that cause other probs? anyone do this? also the power range of the 300exc would it be described more like a 450 4 stroke or 250 2 stroke?? (in the why the power comes on)?

    300exc 2 stroke hit??

    Been looking at a 250 sx or yz (love the power hit) for trail riding and mucking around. I've never ridden the 300exc but love the sound of them, I really want that 2 stroke hit of the mx bike. Is the 300 comparable at all to the sx? if not is there any minor mods you can do to the 300exc to give it that mx hit??? what are the differences sx vs exc flywheel weight? suspension? powervalve spring? silencer? pipe? I know the gear box is a wide ratio in the 300exc. thanks.
