    KTM Engine Manuals

    thanks mate i have been looking for this
  4. Hi all. Have had my 1996 KTM LC4 400 now for about nine months. When I got it it ran ok but it was no power horse. I asked for help in here and Creeper gave me some much needed advice. I got it cracking and running very well and was going very good until now...well I broke a rocker arm. I have fixed it and done the valve adjustments .006 or 0.15mm like I was told. Now I could not get the bike to start and I find out that timing is out so I have adjusted it...the bike is running but I'm not sure if it's right. Any help would be nice..cannot get bike to rev in second gear and when I land after a jump its like it needs more fuel or timing is still out I'm not sure. I have an open air box lid and dellorto 36 carb set with main jet 175 and fuel screw 2 1/4 turns out and needle clip on 2nd notch from bottom. Ok I hope I haven't left anything out and someone has some ideas to help me. Has fixing the rocker arm and doing valve clearance changed my carby settings ?? Forgot to mention that the bike will not idle....but runs fine in top gear....

  12. Hi I have recently bought a KTM LC4 400 and the front fork protectors were missing along with two essential bolts. They are 7 mm bolts the two that are left in there are hex key bolts made from stainless steel. Does anybody know whether stainless steel bolts are stronger than high tensile. I don't know whether I should leave the original stainless steel bolts in and add two high tensile or change them all to high tensile...any advice???? As this is the front wheel it is not something that I wish to play with without being sure. By the way I tried to buy the bolts the same as the original but have been unable to get them anywhere as KTM is meant to be 8 mm standard.
