  1. I thought i would share my short term experience i have with the 17 ktm 250xc. Bought the bike 3 weeks ago and have been getting in tune with it for this upcoming enduro season. Me im a 45yo 200lbs very fast B ,mid pack A level woods rider. On open fast terrain I'm more a mid B . My main current bikes had been a 13 150sx set up for woods and a 2016 250xcf . Im a 2st guy but wanted to try a 4st . For the most part i really liked the 250xcf but certain aspects didn't feel quite right. I was torn between the 150 and 250f on which bike i was faster on. The 150 was light flickable but the 250f had more usable power and was better planted. I wanted a bike that was agile, light,could turn good with power and stability. If i could only combine the 150sx with the 250xcf i would have the perfect bike. I decided to take a gamble on the 250xc . Here is my review of the 2017 KTM 250XC. WOW......... Its going to be hard to sum it up but i will try. I have never been so impressed with any other bike i have owned before. My firt ride i did was almost magical. It left me in shock and amazement on how good the bike was. It felt like i had the bike for years, it was so natural and dialed in. The motor. Smooth, smooth with more smooth. Did i say the motor was smooth. Now i did jet it with the JD kit and set the float height. The power is perfect. Very linear almost 4st like. Good responsive bottom end and mid with a free reving top. You can go up a gear and lug it along or keep the rpms up and scream it. I went out with the wife yesterday. She is a beginner rider and doesn't go very fast. The bike was just fine putting along right off idle in 2nd and 3rd gear. Super easy motor to go slow on. When i wanted to do a quick sprint there was zero load up and the response was crisp. Power wise it has tons more than the 150 and good deal more than the 250xcf below half throttle. The 250xcf is real strong up top so i would say there pretty close to even in the upper rpm. Suspension. The new AER forks in my opinion are the best ktm has put on a bike. I was dumbfounded on how well it worked out of the box. As of now i will not be getting re-valve. With the pressure at 135 psi and compression set 3 clicks softer there about perfect. These forks are so smooth and progressive. They handle the small roots and trail junk along with the big woops and high speed hits. The bike tracks excellent with little or no deflation. The shock I went up 1 spring rate. Its good ,but not as good as the forks. My only complaint is its just a little harsh over multiple small roots. Ive played with the clickers some and have it where im happy with it. When i have the shock serviced it will get e re-valve but its not needed that bad. Handling This bike is a dream. It feels lighter than it is. Its 14lbs heavier than my 150sx but riding it you would never know. It honestly feels more like a 125 than a 250. The bike corners amazingly good. You just think and it goes there. The bike is every bit as flickable compared to the 150 but is still stable. It has a good planted feel, not as good as the 4st but still good. I can make tight corners faster on this bike compared to my others. This bike is the total package. Light weight, quick handling, stable, solid usable power, smooth suspension literally a dream bike. I have never been blow away by a bike before untill now. My 150sx is now for sale. I took it for a short ride and realized its never going to be used again. The 250xc just kills it. Im keeping the 250xcf. The xcf is a good bike and will be ridden, it will be my secondary, backup bike. I will add i did own a 200xcw up untill last year. I now know why ktm dropped the 200. There has been some post recently on 250 vs 300. I have never owned a 300 but have ridden several. I have no regrets buying the 250 over the 300.
  2. I got a question. I own a 2016 KX 85. It ran amazing after it first bought it used. I was riding one day with a bogging issue and about 35 minutes of riding I shut it off to take a break. Came back 20 minutes later and it would not start.I changed the spark plug, cleaned out the carb,checked the reeds,and tried hill starting it but nothing .When ever I try to hill start it I can hear it trying to crank and It starts for like half a second but then dies.There is spark coming from the plug though.I took the cylinder off and the piston and cylinder are &%$#@!ed.The piston rings were stuck in the grooves and I had to use pliers and a screwdriver to get it out.There was a ton of blow-by and the cylinder was scored.I bought a new piston already but how can I fix my cylinder.Im thinking of getting it repaired and replayed by either millennium,PowerSeal USA, or usnicom.This is my first time owning a 2 stroke.Any answers or tips.

  4. Anyone whos raced a 125 2st and(or) a 250 4st in Hs.,enduro,gncc,gp, and motocross, how much did it cost to race the bike? also If you have raced BOTH which did you like better?
  5. I thought I would share my latest project. About 3 weeks ago I picked upped a 87 CR125. It was running but in really sad shape. It was almost at the point of no return destined to be parted out. I decided to save this bike but I'm going to do things a little different than I normally would. Rather than tare it all down and to a full restore I'm taking one thing at a time and doing it on the cheap. After doing a couple bikes ivy learned at lot. Number one lesson don't put money in a bike you don't like and will not ride. The last thing I wanted was a money pit I wasn't going to enjoy. My goal is to spend the minimum amount of money to have a functioning bike that doesn't look bad. Something else I'm going to do is tell you what I spend on this project. The initial cost of the bike was $250. The following posts will go into detail about the work and cost I've done so far. So far I've done nothing cosmetic. I have been focusing on the mechanical aspects first. The pic below was taken today. The only thing is I added the radiator shrouds since the bike did not come with any ( I had them from another bike).
