  1. Hi, New member here! I am interested in 2 bikes, the KTM 125 SX and 150 SX. I know the 150 SX is obviously got a bit more power but I am wondering what the exact differences are. Is it just the cylinder and piston or are there other changes? I am wondering because if there are big differences that means that parts made for the 125 SX won't fit the 150 SX. Most parts are for 125/250/300 bikes I assume. I am assuming that they are very much the same which means that if for example a company makes an exhaust for the 125 SX then it would fit on the 150 SX. I hope that is true. My other question is on the Power Valve system. Does KTM use that Power Valve with the green, yellow and red springs for the 125 SX and 150 SX? Or is it that other one one with that notch? Any help is glady appreciated! Sorry I am also fairly dumb when it comes to bikes, although I used to ride a lot, as it has been a while. I have forgotten a lot about riding.
  2. I'm working on a friends 2007 ktm sxf250 and the bike runs like crap, I completely disassemble the carb and set it in a cleaner over night. I took it out the next morning and cleaned all the jets and passages with pressurized air. I put everything back together and it still won't start. The only way to get the bike to start is by turning the idle all the way up and turning it back down, now that the bike is started and the idle stew is turned down, you got to constantly give gas to keep the think going. I took it out on a ride and the bike ran fine until you pull the clutch in, at this point the bike stalls without any hesitation. To start the bike I need to repeat the whole prosedure to get it started. I have another buddy with an 08' and his bike is extremely cold blooded and takes forever to warm up. I'm not sure if there's an issue with the carb or the bike just needs its sweat time to warm up. PLEASE HELP!
  3. Hello, i have bought few weeks ago a clutch lever of MIDWEST for my ktm enduro 690 2008 year , after the replacement i have notice that the shifting is not as smooth as it was with the original shift. time to time it can be hard for a second to shift a gear but a quick release and pressure will resolve it , it may be my squeeze strength but i have no such experience with the old original clutch level of magura . anyway the old cluch lever was having a spring attached to it , in the instruction of the new clutch there is a statement to disregard the spring from the setup. may it be that the old clutch was more smooth because of it ? also when adjusting the midwest clutch lever i notice that if i squeeze the bolt in the front to much my clutch start slipping at high speed as it was squeezed . my question would be : is anyone experience such problems or similar with that clutch lever (it seems like it not fully COMPATIBLE with the bike) ? i own ktm enduro 690 , 2008 model

    Stolen KTM 300 today

    Hey guys, Not sure where to post this but this morning, April 9th, my 2006 KTM 300 was stolen at the Oregon Dunes just outside of spinreel campground in Lakeside, OR which is just south of Winchester Bay, OR. I'm looking for help recovering it and offering a $500 cash reward especially if we can catch these bastards!!!
  7. I am 49 years young, about 85 kg and never have owned a motorbike and have virtually no riding experience. I have always wanted a dirt bike for the frill of it, but with no friends riding I have just not got around to it. Have my learners and getting my provisional in next few weeks. I am now biting the bullet and weighing up which bike to buy. Single trail, dirt roads, forest trails, riding parks is where I am guessing I’ll be riding. But to be honest, not really sure of where, but it will be somewhere close to the Gold Coast where I live. I have been educating myself with all the online reviews and think that I am on the right path, but with so much info available it is difficult for one without bike experience to siphon the truth from the BS and agendas. One example is whenever I have called a KTM dealer, and said I have been considering buying a Beta, every time they pretend they have never heard of Beta. This is obvious sales propaganda from KTM and that pisses me off. Anyway, I have been set on 2017 Beta xtrainer or rr250. Reviews suggest that the 250 is easier than the rr300 and has better suspension than the xtrainer. The 2017 KTM 250 exc was considered but cost too much. So I was seriously considering a new rr250 with 12 months rego for $11,600, $770 more than xtrainer at $10,830. Now I just found out that the local ktm dealer has the 2017 ktm 250exc on sale for $11,945 with 6 months rego. The only downside seems to be the Mikuni carb. Is the ktm worth paying the extra $400 over the rr250, and $1,115 over the xtrainer? Or should I just buy the easier to ride xtrainer? Can anyone set me free from this too hard decision?

    Desert ride

    A desert ride on our KTMs. Hopefully some weekend motivation: feedback always welcome.
  9. I have a few days left to purchase extended warranty for '17 KTM 250 SX-F. Like 499 for 1 year and 899 for 2 years. Is it worth it?
  10. Don't know if this right part to post but. Today I brought 12" 250 sfx everything thing good only found one problem I need help to fix and diagnose it. So the bike idle and run good but when slowing down and or coming to a stop the bike just cuts off . Even if I hold in clutch . It supposed to stay idle I have to keep reving for it to not cut off . Why is that ?
  11. Hey guys I have a new 2013 KTM 450 Limited Edition that seems to have a temperamental electric start problem. When I try to start it the bike has to turn over a couple times before it starts, sometimes I will run through the process (pressing button for 5 seconds) several times before it'll start. I had a 2008 KTM 450 XCF with the same lithium ION battery and it would start up right away. Even if I dumped the bike it would start back right up...... I can't say the same for my new bike. Is there a trick to start up easier - or is there an underlying issue with my new bike? Because I'm thinking of buying a new battery or a new started unit - my bike has 179 hours on it so far. What's the typical life on these starters? Thanks guys really appreciate the comments and help!!

    Riding in South Africa

    First of many posts hopefully During January we filmed a commercial for Mitas Tyres here in South Africa. It took 2 months of pre-production, 1 week of filming and 3 weeks of editing to arrive at the final video. The riders were David Ellis on the off-road bike (Husqvarna FX450), Altus De Wet on the enduro bike (KTM 300 EXC TPI) and Louis Knipe on the adventure bike (BMW R 1200GS LC) I've had heaps of questions of how we went about filming the video and so I've decided to open up the line to whatever anyone would like to know. Ask me anything.

    KTM 300 EXC not starting

    So I just recently bought a 2014 KTM 300 and I went for about a 2-hour ride and got home, and gave her a wash. Now she doesn't want to start, seems like there is no spark (haven't checked yet) since the bike just kicks over with no sign of life. I also put fuel in which was mixed at 50:1 like the previous owner did. Any help would be much appreciated Cheers
  14. Watch the FMF KTM Factory Racing Offroad Team in action at the 2018 team photoshoot outside of San Diego, California. Riders include: Kailub Russell, Taylor Robert, Cody Webb, Kacy Martinez, and Josh Toth.
  15. Hey guys so I just bought a 2017 ktm sxf and everything is bone stock but I noticed at half throttle it bogs while it's idling or sometimes even when I'm riding. I have to burp the clutch to get it to grab past that half throttle bog point. Any tips ? I'm fairly new to the mechanics of a dirt bike so half the time idk what I'm looking at. Feed back would be greatly appreciated! The bike has balls for sure I just need to figure out how to fine tune it.
  16. Just recently picked up a brand new 2017 KX450F from Paulson's (they were trying to get rid of all of their 2017's so they could make room for the 2019's) and my pops and I are looking for new places to ride other than Belfair/Tahuya. NOTHING wrong with Belfair but we are just looking for something different! So my pops and I used to do the Desert 100 all the time when it was in Mattawa (near Vantage, WA). Then they changed locations to Odessa, WA and it wasn't the same. We were told that they were doing some sort of testing in Mattawa and that's why the location changed but I've been seeing YouTube vids of people riding there as recent as last year. My questions are: Do you need a park pass or anything to go ride over there? One video looks like they parked at the old parking lot/staging area for the Desert 100. Is that were most people still park? If anyone can give me some info, that'd be awesome and much appreciated! Also, figured I'd ask in the same post about riding over in Cle Elum/Roslyn area. I grew up camping over there and riding near the coal piles. I guess the locals complained about the coal dust settling in the town and riding was shut down. Me or my dad haven't been riding over there in probably 20 years. Anyone have any details on riding over there as well? Need any park passes? Where to park and go. My dad knows that area like the back of his hand so I'd love to take him bake there! I haven't rode over there since I was on a KX60. I'm new to this site so I appreciate any info and am excited about being apart of this forum! Braaaaaaaap! Just because - I'll post a pic of the new bike! Just put on a FMF F4.1 Slip-on this week.

    Which Yamaha is right for me?

    Hello all! First post on TT... be nice! I'm buying myself a new dirtbike - and I'm stoked. I haven't had a bike for 6 years, I'm now 22 with a fairly good job so it's time to treat my self. But I've been having a difficult time deciding on what kind of bike. I've got it down to a Yamaha - YZ250X, YZ250FX or maybe even a WR.... I'll be doing strictly woods/trail riding. About a 50/50 mix of tight woods/open logging roads. I'm also currently teaching my girlfriend how to ride! We picked her up a 2014 DRZ125L the other day, so the catch is I'll need to be able to putt slowly enough to stay nearby her... The last two bikes I've had in my riding days were a Suzuki RM250 and a Yamaha yz250f, and loved them both. I'm fairly neutral on 2 stoke vs 4 stroke (maybe someone will help me decide). The other thing is, I don't NEED insane amounts of power. I can't afford to hurt myself... lol. That being said though, if I come across a gnarly hill - you know I'm going up that sucker. I loves hills lol. What do you guys think? YZ250X? YZ250FX? Or should I be looking at something else? Cheers. - Ryan
  18. Hi all, Im a little bit smaller of a rider about 5`2 or 5`3 110 pounds. I feel ive outgrown my crf150rb and am looking to go to a a 250 next spring. Whats the slimmest/smallest 250f out there. Ive almost entirely ruled out a Yamaha because i went to a dealer to look at them and they feel and look so much bigger than all the other 250s. Kawasaki seems like its a smaller slimmer skinnier bike but the Suzuki doesn't look bad either. Ktms seem huge to me and really haven't looked at hondas yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  19. I picked up a 07 450sxf a couple weeks ago and had a question with what seems to be a problem with the clutch. I have noticed when I first start it up and shift into first it will lurch forward and stall, with the cluch still pulled back. I have searched around and it seems its a somewhat common problem. It also seems pretty difficult to get into nuetral when the engine is on or off. I started it up on the stand and while in first gear with the clutch still pulled back the the back tire is still moving relatively quick. I also noticed around the clutch lever there seems to be fluid or remnants of a passed leak. Just trying to figure out what the culprit might be. I've read some solutions might be to bleed the lines or replace the master cylinder. This is my first KTM, so Im not sure if its a common issue. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

    I have no spark on my 09 kx250f. Stator has been replaced along with the igniter, harness, kill switch, and everything has been tested. I don’t know what to do. If you could help me that would be great.

    2017 USA ISDE TEAM

    American Motorcyclist Association announces World, Junior and Women’s Trophy Teams for 2017 International Six Days Enduro Ten Trophy Team riders to represent America in France PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association today announced the 10 Trophy Team riders selected to represent the United States in the 2017 FIM International Six Days Enduro in Breive, France, on Aug. 28 through Sept. 2. The riders will compete as the U.S. Trophy, Junior Trophy and Women’s Trophy teams. “After notching the first U.S. Trophy Team championship last year and seeing the great success of America’s other teams and individual competitors at the 2016 event, we are eager to return to Europe with another group of talented riders,” said AMA Director of Racing Kevin Crowther. “I am confident that these individuals will not only be competitive on a global scale, but also represent America’s determination and conviction to achieve success at the highest level.” The 2017 U.S. World Trophy Team includes: Taylor Robert from Scottsdale, Ariz.; Kailub Russell from Kingston, Ohio; Thad Duvall from Williamstown, W.Va.; and Ryan Sipes from Flaherty, Ky. Russell, Robert, Duvall and Sipes also were named to the U.S. World Trophy Team together in 2015, when Sipes was the top individual rider at the ISDE. Robert was the top individual rider at the 2016 event. The U.S. Junior Trophy team is made up of riders 23 and younger. For 2017, the U.S. Junior Trophy team includes: Grant Baylor from Belton, S.C.; Layne Michael from Fairmont, W.Va.; and Josh Toth from Winsted, Conn. The 2017 U.S. Women’s Trophy Team includes: Kacy Martinez from Sunol, Calif.; Becca Sheets from Columbus, Ohio; and Brandy Richards from Lake Havasu City, Ariz. These riders will be joined by 21 Club Team riders at the ISDE. The U.S. ISDE World and Junior Trophy Teams have been managed by KTM USA’s Off-Road Manager Antti Kallonen since 2012. For 2017, Kallonen will take on the additional challenge of managing the U.S. Women’s Trophy Team. “The results of the riders in the U.S. Trophy Team and the U.S. Junior Trophy Team have been well established over the past few years, and I’m excited to take on a new challenge of the Women’s team,” said Kallonen. “We have formed three solid Trophy teams where our goals are simple: to win. There are no short cuts to success.” Riders at the ISDE compete in one of three displacement classes. The E1 class features 100cc to 125cc two-stroke and 175cc to 250cc four-stroke motorcycles. The E2 class features 175cc to 250cc two-stroke and 290cc to 450cc four-stroke motorcycles. The E3 class features 290cc to 500cc two-stroke and 475cc to 650cc four-stroke motorcycles. “These riders are the fastest and most experienced riders in the country,” Kallonen said. “We have arrived at a level where we are no longer learning and can now focus on smaller, but important, details that can defend our World Trophy championship and bring more titles back to America.” The team’s efforts would not be possible without the help of many sponsors including Coastal Racing, FMF and Bonanza Plumbing. Riders are supported by individual manufacturer and product sponsors. Direct team sponsors include: Rabaconda, Seat Concepts, Trail Jesters, Arai Helmets, Spectro, Motion Pro, Hall’s Cycles and Elizabeth Scott Community. Also supporting the ISDE effort is ISDE team physician, Dr. James McGee. Fans can show their support by buying ISDE U.S. team apparel at www.amagear.com.

  24. A friend of mine asked me to fix his drz125 for him. The bike was put away running and sat for about 6 years In a shed. I cleaned the carb, air box, air filter, etc... and shimed the valves. The bike will start right up 1st kick but when it gets hot it will only idle and die out when u give it gas. I think it's a fuel related issue but I don't know what else to do. Please help, any ideas are appreciated.
