  1. I recently bought a 2001 YZ250F for $600. Bought some stuff for it, and grand total was $850. The market in CA is about $2200, and I put it up for $2500. I have 5-6 people offering me anywhere from $2000-$2500 cash. My dad is saying that I shouldn't sell it since it's a green sticker, and since it's a 250. I think, I should sell it, and with the money buy a 2002 KTM 250SX. What should I get? Thanks.

    Old vs new 125 EXC

    Hello! I am currently looking at road legal 125cc 2 stroke bikes. Been looking on KTM 125 EXcs, as they are quite popular here (7 EXCs for sale currently, and only 1 Husaberg, 2 Husqvarnas :D), so you get a bigger choice. The question is, is there a really big difference between the older EXCs, vs the new ones? The newer ones cost A LOT more, so I thought I could get away with an older one. There's a 2007 EXC for sale currently for a good price. It has new 2011 plastics, headlight, gas tank and decals (everything new). Painted main frame, new rear frame, painted handlebars and some other small parts. New seat, decals, both sprockets and chain. The engine got a new cylinder and piston. New bearings, refurbished cam shaft, new kick + shaft and new gaskets. Some other minor parts like an FMF fatty + shorty, Twenty levers etc, but I don't think that plays a big role. Do you think that it's eorth getting that bike, or should I try to buy a newer one? Difference in power, fuel consumption or anything else? Regards, Szymon.
  3. Just bought a 2017 KTM 500 EXC-F with only 3.5 hours. Wouldnt start, I took it to the local KTM shop and discovered the pump wasn't pumping enough fuel. I replaced the fuel pump with a CA Cyleworks fuel pump. The bike now fired up. It wouldn't idle for more than 10-30 seconds but was ridable, however, suffered hesitation and bogging down when rolling on the throttle. I replaced the fuel injector and now it will start after several tries and run for a few seconds then die. I have fiddled with the idle screw with no success, its currently maxed out and doesn't seem to change the results regardless of the position of the idle screw or the cold start screw. I've checked the fuses and connectors and nothing seems out of place. I'm currently at a loss...oh and yes the fuel is fresh, and the battery terminals are tight...Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    KTM 990 Adventure R

    Hi to all, What are the best sounding slip-on pipes for a KTM 990 Adventure R; to get that grunty V-twin sound out? Cheers..
  5. Hey everyone, just seeing what everyone out there uses for their phone storage. For as long as I can remember I would just throw it in the pack but on short rides with no pack I was out of luck. I didn't have pockets and if I did I didn't want to go down and break it. I found a case from Havik Accessories that is just what I needed and liked it enough I thought we'd share. Enter havik when you buy to get $4 off. https://havik-accessories-and-apparel.myshopify.com/collections/all-products/products/havik-motobar-case Here it is on two bikes:
  6. 2006 300 xcw, with a Baja designs dual sport kit and a trailtech vapor already installed. Hours unknown, owner says he's never been into the top end, says PO replaced rings. A few aftermarket parts, pipe, handguards, springs (will redo suspension anyway) Both owners were old guys who used didn't ride much. Here's the add: https://albany.craigslist.org/mcy/d/06-ktm-300xc/6639957837.html

    03 KTM 200 EXC won't start...

    So I've recently bought a 2003 KTM 200 EXC. When I first went to look at the bike it started first kick every time, the only issue was that it was running a bit rich. About a week later I picked the bike up and it still started, first time every time. There's a 465 meter difference (higher) between the the shop I purchased it from and where I live, but I didn't think it would effect the bikes ability to start. I rode it around a little the next day and put in the shed overnight. The next day it wouldn't start, didn't even sound like it wanted to. Over the past few weeks I've leaned and cleaned out the carburetor, cleaned the air filter and tried starting it with the air box open, checked the floats which seemed to be okay, and tried bump starting it many times. Sorry for the novel, but if anybody has ideas on what may be the problem, any suggestions are appreciated. Or should I just take it to the KTM shop and let them work their magic?

  9. I recently picked up a 4 stroke KTM 450 and I have been having issues getting the bike to kick start. Upon further inspection I pulled the stator cover off and a ton of fuel came pouring out. After that the bike started no problem but I originally though the issue was with the petcock or float needle so I replaced both of those parts and reset the float height. I also did a pressure test on the float needle and seat to make sure fuel wasn't leaking past into the engine. A few days ago I left the petcock on and the bike flooded again even though the float needle should prevent fuel from passing through the carb. At this point I have no idea what the issue could be, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    KTM 85 green oil leak

    Hi, my Husqvarna (KTM in disguise) 85 has just sprung an oil leak while it was layed over on it’s left side, the oil was dripping off the bottom of the foot peg and an alarming amount of oil has come out, and the oil seems to have a green tinge to it. Does anyone know what this is? Thanks
  11. This isn't my bike but its the same part.
  12. Does anyone in the So Cal area have recommendations for someone who does custom seats? I'm looking to get a low seat for my '09 200 XC, apparently they don't make them for this bike, I've searched and searched can't find anything. Other years yes, but not the 2009. Already did the DIY shaving of a stock seat, wasn't pretty, clearly need a professional.
  13. Here is a video and review about a place in Central Texas called GSL Ranch - located just north of San Antonio, and east of Austin. My initial thoughts were that the riding was not going to be so great, and if you like riding tails, it may leave a little to be desired, however if you like seeking out rough terrain, and different obstacles to ride and practice on, it is definitely worth a trip. Dry camping is great, and it is fairly inexpensive - $10/rider/day.
  14. I am looking for a bike for my 15 year old son. He is coming of a honda crf150r. I didn't really want to buy the 150 and I don't want to buy a 250cc 4-stroke race bike, simply because of the reliability issues, so i am thinking of the KTM 150 xc w for him. He has had a part time job on the school holidays so i am willing to get him what he wants. I am looking for suggestions of other bikes and your thoughts on the KTM

    2016 sxf250

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forums so please excuse anything i do wrong! I currently have a 2009 yz250f and was looking on buying a 2016 sxf250. I'm looking at one for sale that's in really good condition and was wondering if the ktm has that hit off the bottom that the Yamaha does. Like right when you twist the throttle on my yz it instantly pulls you back and is just really snappy right when you twist the throttle. It acually really bothers me when I'm on tight trails. So yeah i'm just looking for a bike that has smooth roll on power and was wondering if the ktm offers that. Thanks! PS: Looking for replies with guys that ride one of the newer 2016+ sxf250f's

    alabama Dirt bikers of South Alabama

    I’m looking for people in Southeast Alabama. I’m located in Dothan Al. I’d love to meet up and ride with y’all. It’s hard to find people that ride around these parts. I mainly ride trails but will hop on the track.
  18. Hey guys, I went to see this 625 SXC LC4 whis is sold in a good price but the condition is not that good. I recorded the engine sound so that possibly experienced owners can recognize any engine problems such as camshaft bearing failure etc. I appreciate any input...

    2003 KTM 200EXC Fenders

    Hey, wondering if the fenders below are interchangeable on a 2003 KTM 200 EXC. Just because I want to get the fender on the bottom, which is really for the 200 SX, but I don't know if it will fit.
  20. I have an '08 200xc. I absolutely hate gnarly pipes. I like the KTM/FMF pipe (which is pretty much a fatty pipe I think) but now they are really hard to find. Some pipes say they will fit 06-10 or 03-04 or 04-05 or 06-07 or 00- 06 or 00-05 or 04-15... you get the idea. Whats the real deal here? Ideally I just want a fatty pipe on this bike or just something that isn't focused on low end torque.
  21. Got a 2002 KTM 200 EXC the other day, seemed to run fine during the test drive. Take it out the next day and after ~15 minutes of riding it fouls a plug on me. Push it home and buy some more plugs. It now fouls the new plug within 5 minutes of putting a plug in. Starts right up with a new plug but fouls it out very quickly every time. Tried 3 plugs. Any ideas as to what could be going on? I'm using NGK BR8EG plugs. Air filter is fine. I took the carb apart and lowered the needle (raised the clip one notch) and checked the float level. Maybe the piston and rings need replacing or the crank seal? Haven't had a chance to check them yet. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    KTM 85 massive top end bog

    I own a 2016 KTM 85 sx, and ride Enduro and dabble in motocross. The bike normally performs flawlessly, until the last ride. After about 20 hours since having a full engine rebuild, it started having this small bog at high revs, sometimes I could be full throttle and have no problem, but other times I’d be hard on the throttle, and the revs would randomly cut off while on the throttle, after letting off the throttle, the bog would disappear. This used to only happen once every couple rides, but over time it has become more and more frequent, and about half an hour into my last ride I couldn’t go above half throttle withought the bike bogging and the revs cutting off. Anyone know what this might be?? Thanks in advance. -Reeve
  23. I just stumbled across a hell of a deal on a brand new FMF Megabomb for a 2014 KTM 350 SX-F. However, I have a 2014 KTM 350 XC-F, and on the ad it says the pipe fits the SX-F models but says nothing about fitting the XC-F. Does anyone know if the head pipes on the SX-F's and XC-F's are interchangeable? I assume they would be since they are identical motors, but I don't want to order it and be SOL.

    KTM SX 50 Carb Help

    Wondering if someone could help me or at least point me in the right direction. My son's SX50 was running absolutely fine until at the track last week when it started cutting out. I was having to keep the throttle blipped to keep the bike started and on other occasions, blipping the throttle would cause it to bog down instead. The bike has good solid compression, I've taken the carb off and cleaned it as well as the throttle cable line. Checked the plug and cleaned the air filter. The bike also starts with no issues at all. At this stage I'm thinking it has to be something to do with the carb. I'm just wondering, does someone have the stock settings for the idling screw and the brass screw? The brass screw was out 6 turns and the idling screw was out 5. I'm hoping its a stock carb and I can revert it back to factory settings. Thanks Edit: I have just checked the reed valves and they appear to be fine. It has VForce3 reeds and a Delloro carb fitted. I have also just removed and cleaned all the jets in the carb. It looks super clean. Completely out of ideas now.
  25. I am currently in high school and I am planning out my career path after I graduate. My dream is to be a KTM Factory Racing mechanic, but I haven't found a very clear answer on what steps must be taken to become one. For example would it require a college degree or would I be able to go to a trade school or learn by apprenticeship? If any suggestion would be appreciated, thank you.
