  1. 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:
  2. Hi there, Completely new here to the forum but already read a lot of info! Just bought a very nice Keihin FCR 41 MX carb to go with my KTM 640 SM 2004. This sunday i'm going to fit the carb on the bike but need some guidance for the jetting. The bike now has: - Snorkel from the airbag removed and the top of the airbbox is fully open - Leovince X3 slip on (i sawed de DBkiller, without it's way too loud and with the full DBkiller i can't hear the revs...) So... how to start with the jetting? I live at sea level! I also have a Rally cam laying around, do i need to rejet when i put the Rally cam in? Thanks in advance!
  3. 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.

    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?
  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

    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..
  8. 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!
  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.
  10. 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...

    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

    KTM RFS death rattle

    Hi all So my RFS developed the death rattle I've taken it apart and yes the nut was loose but my question is does the Woodruff key look ok please see pics. Thanks
  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
  15. 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.

    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
  17. This isn't my bike but its the same part.

    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.
  19. 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.
  20. Hi all. This is my first time posting here, been using this wonderful resource for some time though. So a brief introduction and question. I got back into riding a few years ago after a long time away. A couple years ago I picked up a new to me 2009 KTM 200 XC-W. I've had a lot of fun the last two seasons riding the bike, but even after a fair amount of riding and getting more comfortable on the bike, it still feels really tall and really stiff. I ride trail and single track, some pretty steep and rocky trails here in northern CO. No MX, racing, or big jumps. I've spent a considerable amount of time on hold and emailing suspension companies trying to get recommendations with no response. So hopefully you knowledgeable folks here can help me out. I was told by the previous owner the bike was set up for a 190lb rider. I weigh maybe 140 soaking wet. I've played with the clickers and have a lower seat but the suspension seems too far out of the range for a person as light as I am. I've torn the forks down for seals and replaced a damper rod tube that had 80% of the threads snapped off where the fork cap / reb adjuster screws on (probably that 190lb previous owner going all Lennie form Mice and Men on it) causing the adjuster rod to be bottomed out just to get the cap on two threads and the clicker on the cap to be stuck. I'm an experienced mechanic and have no issues with the forks and can get the shock spacer added and serviced / charged with nitrogen locally. My question is on spring rates. Racetech's calculator gives me .359 fork and P5 progressive rate shock. Do I want to go up in rate much from there when lowering 1" all around? Here's my plan, based solely on the racetech calculator and my measurements from when I had the forks apart, so your thoughts and experience here are very much appreciated. Stock spring dimensions are 43.2 x 508 x .41. The rate in there now is unknown. I plan on using Racetech 42.7 x 493 in a .38 spring rate. That's .6 in shorter, There's enough shims up top to remove to get correct preload with an inch lowering spacer at the bottom. For the rear stock is 8.4 rate. I can't find any marks to guess what's in there right now. I am planning to use the P5 from racetech, again based on their calculator. Sorry for the long winded post, I'm a mechanic raised by a machinist and I've been trying to work this out for a while. Thanks in advance, Noah
  21. Let a buddy of mine ride my 1996 ktm 250sx, 2-stroke and he managed to come down on just the shifter after a small jump. The bike would barely shift after and had to be rocked for awhile to find neutral. I tore the clutch cover, clutch and the other half of the clutch case off to inspect the shift slide things and they appeared to be working correctly so i removed them and manually used a allen head to shift the gear tumbler and at first it wouldn't shift but when it did it made a loud click and then was able to shift between 1st, neutral, 2nd, and 3rd but refuses to go to 4th and beyond. When I try to get it into 4th, right before it should shift it makes a loud click as if when im spinning the gear tumbler, its turning something into a wall. Im lost at this point and want to know if its probably in my transmission and if so what could it be?

    KTM 85 powervalve disassembly

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone knows how to take the powervalve governor out of a KTM/Husqvarna 85. I’ve bought a new spring for it and I don’t know how to fit it, I’ve heard the spring is in the same spot as in the bigger KTM’s but after I take the cover off the bolt underneath (pictured) just keeps turning. Does anyone know? Thanks heaps.
  23. Ok, this may be really dumb, but I’m stumped. ‘08 KTM 505 XCF was running great. I put a JD Jet Kit on it, with recommended settings (Blue needle, 3rd pos, 42/182, 1-3/4 turns on air/fuel). Post kit installation, including the accelerator pump diaphragm adaptor, and o-ring on the throttle linkage/screw, I cannot get it to idle correctly or get the hot start lever to do anything. It also backfires lightly when decelerating(like its lean). The blue needle is supposed to be the richer needle. It starts with the choke on, I can get the idle to basic normal idle with the idle setting, but when I rev it up, the idle accelerates to a very high idle, like it’s extremely lean. Then I can’t get it to come down without shutting it off, and it gets worse as it warms up. I pulled the carb, checked all the gaskets, checked the needle and hot start lever to confirm it wasn’t stuck. From what I understand, when you pull the hot start lever, it should increase the idle as it leans out the bike. Mine doesn’t do anything, and when the idle is revving, I pull it and it actually lowers the idle? I’m confused, as I thought the JD Jet Kit would be gold, as I’ve had it on other KTMs. Not sure if this is an air leak? Did the adapter I put on the accelerator pump diaphragm cause this? I’m about to pull the jet kit, and go back to a normal needle. Any suggestions or ideas would be much appreciated.....thank you....very frustrating.

    125sx Loose Bearing Identification

    Hi All, Recently I purchased a 2012 125sx from a friend dirt cheap. The only catch, the thing would occasionally seize up. I finally got around to slitting the cases on it and this is what I found. 30-40 loose ball bearings around 4-5mm in diameter, most of them on the transmission side(I gathered most of the ones i could find for the picture below). What I didn't find where any bearing races or any indication of where these may have come from. Now I have little experience with these machines, but common sense tells me I should have clear failure of multiple bearings to produce this many loose balls. While it is unlikely, someone could have vandalized this poor bike with a handful of BB's for a BBgun. My question to you fine folks: Where do you think these BBs came from? Am i missing something obvious? Thanks for your time. External link for pics: https://imgur.com/gallery/yR40O76
