    7 WAYS TO AVOID THE DREADED FLAT TIRE DEMON

    I carry a patch kit. it is much lighter and easier to carry. I have ridden with the patched tires until the tire wears out and never had a patch go bad. I use heavy duty tubes and rarely get flats with 11lbs in the rear and 12lbs in front.

    I just ordered a set of Renthal KFX450R bars. They are 769mm wide, height is 64mm, rise is 120mm ad sweep is 72mm. I hope they are comfortable.I got them off ebay for $39

    stock KTM bars?

    Does anyone know where to buy a narrower bar than 31.5"? My ideal bar would be the Neken in a 30". I have cut mine down but now my lever positions dont work.

    KTM Timing Chain Tensioner upgrade

    All dealers are out of stock in Dirt Tricks Timing chain tensioners. Does anyone have one that they would sell me asap for my 2010 250 xcf-w? Please email crashklein@aol.com or call Steve 203-445-0273 Thanks
  7. I am trying to decide on my next bike. I have a 2010 250Xcfw that I love but if it were possible to keep the light nimble feel of this bike and gain more low end torque, I would want to upgrade to the 350. I just bored my top end 2 millimeters over and didn't balance the crank. Therefore I now have more low end power but a vibration in the handle bars. I don't want to make any more expensive mistakes. Has anyone gone from the 250xcf to the 350xcf? What are your thoughts?

    2010 KTM vibration after new top end

    It was my dumb idea that I suggested to my engine builder. He did not mention that I could have this issue. The bike has much more bottom end now. I will take you're suggestion and not worry about it. This is a learning experience. Thanks

    2010 KTM vibration after new top end

    The cylinder was bored them replated by the replating shop,A Wisco 2 mm over piston was installed. Nothing was done to the crank. I checked all the motor mounts and only found one bolt that I could tighen just slightly more than it was. I may want to find a used stock top end and go back to orginal specs. This is getting expensive cuz it cost me $920 for the first rebuild.
  10. I just had a shop rebuild the top end on my 2010 KTM 250xcfw. We went a 2 millimeters over sized Wisco piston. The bike runs great and has great bottom end but there is now a strong vibration in the handle bars. I even use Flex bars which havent changed from before the rebuild. Any thoughts on what could be causing the vibration?

    09 sm450RR what is it worth?

    Thanks guys. unfortunately I did the deal before I read your thoughts. I have him $8k trade in. Oh well, I will put it on ebay and see what happens. Thanks for your help.
  13. I am going to take an 09 SM450RR in on trade for a bike that I am selling. The second R is not a misprint. It is a real Race replica. I will want to sell it since I am a dirt rider and dont see much pavement. I need to know what value to place on it for a quick sale. The bike is like new with maybe 3 or 4 miles on it.It includes all the extra goodies that came with the bike from the dealer. Never raced.Headlite and tail light have been added and it has been street titled in CT. I would appreciate any help that anyone may be able to contribute. Thanks crashklein@aol.com

    03 WR450F Wont start easily

    I have gone through one starter. the carb has been apart but is correct. The hot start with no throttle doesnt work. I find that if I give the throttle a squirt and then play with the hot start it starts sooner.
