    2017 CRF450RX bad vibrations?

    Check that the balancer shaft and gear are indexed correctly we had this problem with an 11, and the cause was bad clutch basket cushions. which are not replaceable from Honda.

    Replacement Spokes and Rims

    We're replacing OEM spokes and Excel rim. The bike in question is a KTM. I know this is the Honda forum, but I believe there's more experience here for what the subject is. we've seen a pattern of KTM spokes fatiguing, and start breaking in a short amount of time. its a bad idea to replace one spoke at a time then a short time later find 2 or more failures a short time later I tried a tusk setup a few months ago, my son didn't get a month of use from it. I thought Tusk might be Moose with a different name and it could be.
  3. Whats a good option for replacement spokes and wheels? and where to get them I know Dubya and other high end stuff, but I don't want to mortgage my house just for some decent wheels
  4. With all the controls and switches on the bars there's no room for traditional bar clamp hand guards, due of the transition from 1 1/8 to 7/8" what options are out there

    Bike will not go into 5th

    possibly debris collected in the shift ratchet if all other gears are working correctly The right side engine cover and clutch have to be removed to investigate. if its not that, then its something inside the cases and the engine has to come apart as indicated above
  7. I'm thinking one of two possible problems Could be a bad spark plug boot or the cam sprocket mount has spun on the cam shaft which puts the cam lobes out of time even though the the timing marks are correct

    Major problems with 2016 KTM 350 xc-f

    Had either of you performed a valve adjustment
  9. nesc103y

    Crf250r no compression

    There was no mention of what year bike or why it was taken apart Insert other media As already mentioned check the valve timing Check the valve clearances Check the cam sprocket has not spun on the cam

    Valve to replace oem ones?

    what -1 said Its not uncommon for oem valves to still look new after over 100 hrs of use. Unless of course your not keeping up with air filter maintenance I've found these KTM parts are much more durable than the Jap brands

    Not sure if this is your first KTM we found coming from Honda's the KTM's moving parts, like clutchs, cranks, valves pistons, etc all last much longer than the Hondas IN fact the whole bike is much more durable than Honda's

    Yamaha clips are much easier to install than OEM KTM clips KTM clips are probably the most difficult clips I've ever installed

    OEM KTM wrist pin clips are very difficult to install because of the high rate of tension the tool you are referring to is probably similar to this in the video

    Chain adjustment

    they're good but difficult to read accurately. I find using a slide mic easier
  15. We use the same procedure as Orion above and it works perfectly in the coldest weather. He described it exactly as the manual states. If you have a hard time following that Here's an option https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/730/76833/Tusk-KTM-Battery-Upgrade-Kit
