    I just took the linkage apart.

    2014 KTM 250 SX part help

    I'm rebuilding my top end on a 2014 KTM 250sx and I'm not too familiar with KTMs. I have a part that I don't recognise and I'm wondering if anyone can help me identify it. I thought it went near the power valve but it doesn't look like it.

    Great thanks!

    2017 SX plastic

    I'm wondering if the new front fender/number plate bolt directly on a 2014? I have to replace it and I thought I might as well get the new stuff if it fits.

    Talk me into a 16 RMZ450, please....

    I wouldn't be so sure about a new 450 in 2017.

    '11 or '12 YZ250f

    Nevermind, I found a thread on it.

    '11 or '12 YZ250f

    Im considering both of these and I can get the 2011 for $1000 cheaper. I know the new one is a bit faster and has black rims, etc. Is it really worth $1000 more?

    09 how much better than 08 450xc.

    I haven't tried the 2008, but the forks on my 2009 450XC are light years better than the ones on my '07 250sx.

    Reed rides the 350

    I wouldn't read too much into that. Alessi is training with him in Australia right now so he probably just hopped on to see what it was like.

    MXA 2011 250 SXF Nov Issue is Out

    I don't think I've ever read a MXA test where they did like the gearing.

    450 XC-f oil pump

    I measured my spring today and it was 38.4 mm. Do I still need to shim it with a washer or is it ok the way it is? Secondly, where are you guys getting the washer? Is it a KTM part? Thanks

    450 XC-f oil pump

    I just bought a lightly used 2009 450xc-f, and I'm wondering if there is anything I need to do with the oil pump. I've read some people shim it and was wondering where I can find out how to do that. Also, is it necessary to get a manual cam chain tensioner? The bike has about 10 hrs on it.
  13. I have the chance to get a 2008 KTM 250sx-f for $6000 taxes in. It's a new leftover model and I'm trying to decide if that's fair or a bit high. Local dealer says it's a good deal but I'm not sure. Any opinions?
  14. I'm currently looking for a new bike for a mixture of trail riding and MX. I have it narrowed down to either a 08 250SX-f which is a new leftover model, or an 09 450xc dealer demo with 15 hours on it. I can get both for the same price. I won't be putting a lot of hours on it because the nearest riding area is 2 hours away. I'm 5'10, 185 lbs and I have quite a bit of experience riding but I haven't ridden much in the last 10 years and I'm novice level on the track. I'm looking for suggestions for which one is best suited for me. thanks.

    Inexpensive 2 stroke mix

    I use Yamalube R and have never had a problem. MXA mentioned in one of their magazines that it's all they use when it comes to their 2 strokes so it's gotta be decent.
