  1. So I thought I should create a new thread to dump my vlogs into for the few that do watch them. If you didn't catch my vlogs from last year for 2017, check them out here -> 2017 NMA Series Season 2 is well underway for 2018. This year I'll be racing the Open A class competing in both the NORCS and NMA off-road series as well as the Desert 100 and maybe some other races throughout the year. If you got any questions or recommendations, lets hear them. Enjoy! Northwest Off-Road Championship Series (NORCS) Northwest Motorcycle Association (NMA)
  2. What can anyone recommend to help my bike(03 CR250r) climb like a KTM 300 XC? I know what most of you will probably say and that would be to go buy a 300 but that is not in the cards right now as I can't afford another payment right now. The mods that are currently on my bike are FMF gnarly pipe and VF3 reeds, a JD jet kit in it and 13/50 sprockets. It runs good but it won't climb some of the hills the 300 will and I have ridden the 300 and it makes climbing a breeze. I was tempted to try a flywheel weight but I have never tried one so any help I would appreciate. I'm 220lb rider by the way.
  3. I am buying a used 2014 300xc from a local seller. I am looking for some advice on the initial maintenance that I should perform after picking it up. Background: His dad bought it new in 2014, selling it to him in 2016. He is selling it to upgrade to a 2017. The seller raced recreationally in some local enduros. The motor is untouched. Never rebuilt top or bottom. (seller said he guessed 70 hours, but I assume it's much more) It has a bent radiator (not leaking). New pipe. New Silencer. Says he just replaced the clutch pack, chain and sprockets. The bike looks heavily used, but for agreed upon price I am happy with it. What are the must do maintenance items I should perform before riding in the spring?
  4. OK here goes... Picked up an 04 200 EXC few months back, needed some work to say the least, wont go into detail of all the things i've fixed on the bike just the current and most present issue I cant seem to fix... it is smoking IE blue smoke/lots of splooge to the point that at the end of a few hour's ride, it's out the tail pipe, running down the back and dripping onto the swing arm/rear break caliper and blue smoking quite a bit. When I first got it, it smoked more and smelled like shit. So first things first went to the carb, I live on the Oregon coast (elevation/temp reference) it's old dirty/stained but inside looks good, came with jetting pilot-45, main-178 needle: no idea what brand guessing stock in the 3rd clip, adjusted the float height due to it leaking gas when bike was upright no tilt with the gas on, Bought JD jet kit and running pilot-45, Main-185 and Needle is blue 3rd clip (JD's recommend specs for my bike @ my attitude). I have also replaced my Inner crankcase seal twice (First time I thought I messed up the O-ring so redid to make sure). I've rebuilt the top end/new piston (same thing) cleaned the PV, NOTE HERE that the PV has some issues, it seems to work fine but the screw that goes on top of the cylinder, down into the PV/flap would not come out preventing me from removing the flap to clean it, however it move's/ function's correctly, and has minimum clearance on both sides. One of the PV cover bolts that also works at the exhaust spring holder, was over torqued at some point (impact driver prob), or a result in a hard impact, the hole the bolt goes into is flailed/jared open a bit, not bad, not in the way of any function/ PV Gearing/hinge, it is not needed for that area to be air tight as their is also a breather that goes out of the PV so will not result in an "air leak" or loss in Top end PSI.... anyway... it's still smoking.... quite a bit.. now the bike itself rides fine I feel, the carb does puke gas when tilted over slightly/ hard to start (kick start) after flooded (like all bikes tho) I don't have any stalling/low idle issues outside of user error on clutch control. Honestly outside of it smoking as much as it does I would think nothing is wrong with it.. I have also tried raising the needle Clip to 2nd clip and it changed nothing at all, not even feel of the bike/response and have a new Spark plug I have yet to put on the bike. I have also "compromised" the crankcase Gasket (new one in the mail) while I was putting the Crankcase back on but that should do nothing with the exhaust just a little gear oil leak not relevant but throwing it out there. So I am at a loss... I've been toying with the idea of getting a Lectron carb... However... would hate to drop $400~$500 and the issue still persist, if it's a jetting/carb/float issue that would fix it and improve MPH/fuel consumption Or something with the PV? but I don't see the PV causing that much smoke/sploogee... I've ridden the bike normally/hard and nothing's happened but I don't want to keep pushing it and possibly clip the bike. Any ideas? "Oh help me 2 stroke community you're my only hope"
  5. Hey all, im shopping for my first two stroke. I’m a woods rider and I’ve found what looks like a great deal on an 250 sx. Changes in bike thus far are lower gearing on chain and softer spring on shock, bark busters and handlebar risers. I will certainly need an xc gas tank and probably work on forks. Anything else I can/should do to make this single track worthy?
  6. The purpose of this post is to review the STIC Metering Block for Keihin PWK carburetors, particularly in the application of my 2017 Husqvarna TX300. BLUF: If you don't want to read the long of it, all you need to know is the STIC metering block is 100% legit. It does exactly what it claims to do. I can tell you with 100% certainly that there is not a single pipe, head, reed cage, or any other type of engine mod out there that can increase power like the STIC does, especially at the price of $295. For the record, nobody gave me one of these to test for free. I paid out of pocket for it. I am not affiliated with the inventor, George Boswell, or any of the dealers of this product. Background: In general, the TX300 is one of, if not THE best bike I have ever owned (and I have owned many). Even with the Mikuni woes, this is a very good bike out of the box for a multitude of applications. I use mine primarily in the high-desert of New Mexico, but also use it in the mountains from time to time, and it handles both with ease. I have an insatiable urge to tinker and make things better, even when they are already very good. To that end, I have thrown the book at this bike in terms of modifications. Every single modification I have made to this bike has made the bike a bit better, with the exception of the Lectron carburetor. For the purposes of this thread, we'll just discuss the carburetor mods. The JD jetting kit for the Mikuni worked well, but, given my nature, I decided to try the Lectron. In the words of my friend, it "makes old man power". He was right. I hated the characteristics the Lectron brought, so I sold it after two rides on it and bought a Keihin 38mm PWK short body from JD, with his jetting kit. Night and day better. It was crisper everywhere and just ran better in general. I landed on a 38 pilot, JD Red Clip 3, 170 main, 1.5 AS for my conditions (5200', 75 degrees at the time). Again, being that I can't leave well enough alone, I decided to give the STIC a try. I purchased it from Derek at HP Race Development originally. It came with a .115 needle jet. I gave it a shot and couldn't get the bike to run right. It would load up really bad off the bottom, then clean out and hit really hard in the midrange, then flatten out up top. I ended up contacting the inventor, George Boswell, directly about the issues I was having and that I needed a smaller needle jet. Mr. Boswell contacted me within an hour of my email and explained to me the interworkings of the STIC system. He sent me, on good faith, an entire new STIC with the correct .114 needle jet, a 50 pilot and a 182 main jet installed, and only asked that I return the one I originally bought from Derek to him when I received the new one. Unbelievable customer service, and my hat is off to him. I installed the STIC into my Keihin with the supplied jets and went out for a test run after work. Atmospherics and initial settings were as follows: 5200'/90 degrees F 50 Pilot JD 2 Scribe Red Needle, Clip 3 182 main 3.5 AS Right off the bat, it was abundantly clear that the bike was making more power everywhere. It ran MUCH cleaner with the .114 needle jet installed. The best way I can describe the power the TX is putting down with the STIC installed is that it has the bottom and midrange of a 300 on crack, and a top end that pulls like a 250 on crack, and it revs out much further where before, it would flatten out on the top end. It seems to just keep pulling and pulling. The only spot that felt like it might be running a bit rich was on the main, and I figured I might as well try one step smaller on the pilot as well. To be clear, even with overly rich settings, it still ran really well. I installed a 48 pilot and a 180 main, and left the other settings the same. The bike ran cleaner on the main, but didn't seem to want to pull as hard (however, slightly) as it did before. I reinstalled the 50 pilot and kept the 180 main and everything felt perfect. The spot I rode today is full of deep, power robbing sand, big whoops and very steep sandhills. I found the steepest, sandiest hill out there and made a go at it with little to no running start at it. Not only did the bike make it, but it accelerated the whole way up and I was actually able to upshift and continue accelerating. I wouldn't have made it previously, without the STIC installed. I couldn't believe it, honestly. I will be doing more testing with this system, but again, I am more than impressed and I can say with full confidence that its legit. I need to start saving money for rear tires 🙂 More to follow.
  7. Hey guys/girls, I'm looking at buying a new KTM and don't want to spend the money without riding one first. I'm on the fence between the 250 and 300xc models. I race c class in local hare scrambles and will be racing my first GNCC (Camp Coker) in a few weeks (I'm pretty slow btw). I love casual trail riding as well. My current bike is an 09 200xc. My riding buddy has a 2020 300 husky and It is an absolute dream to ride, but at 170lbs wet I'm not sure I wouldn't be just as happy with a 250 and have less felt weight in the single tracks. I'm always looking for new people to ride with and would enjoy meeting up with someone at a local compound. We have a pretty awesome private 6mile loop in Sumter, SC also. Its tough to spend 10k on something without giving it a test ride... Hit me up if anyone's interested, KTM or not!!
  8. Currently ride a kx250f. Wanna get a 300xc because I ride rocky trails and it’s better in them, also wanna make the bike street legal in the future. I don’t ride 2 strokes, is this a good idea? Also, how is the power and on these bikes? If I get one I’ll probably put a weighted flywheel on and an fmf gnarly.
  9. Hi Guys. I'm in the market for a different bike as mine isn't cutting it for me anymore. I have a 2010 KTM 250 XC and have the opportunity to buy a damn near brand new 2014 KTM 350 XC-F. I've heard a lot of mixed things about the 350, and was wondering what the owners of them have to say about them. I've read a lot about different years but haven't heard much of anything about the 2014. Can someone help me out?
  10. Hey guys I was wondering if you could tell me if this stator looks okay and is right. It’s off a 2010 KTM 250 XC. I just pulled it off the other day to grease up the e-starting gears, and I don’t know much about the ignition system so could someone tells me if this stator is supposed to look like this? I’ve since cleaned up all the black crude. Thanks
  11. hi, i just bought a new ktm 300xc 2017, and wondering how to maintain and keep charged and fresh the included lithium ion battery. I was used to plug a trickle charger from motomaster in my bike, but it says on the box, for charging lead acid and gel batteries... any advices? thanks!
  12. I'm and intermediate rider who rides very aggressively and on hard, but fast-paced woods/cross-country/harescramble riding. Sometimes I'll do technical, really tight trails, log crossings, and hillclimbs, etc. and I also will ride motocross tracks every once in a while. I currently own a 2008 KTM 250 XC-F with a bigger rear sprocket, FMF exhaust, aftermarket piston, and I typically run high octane fuel. I won't be upgrading for quite a while but I am planning ahead trying to decide what to save up for and all that. I'm sure this forum will also help others in similar situations. I'd like something that can top out faster than my bike but something that can accelerate quickly and have more torque as well. The majority of my riding is very fast-paced woods with hard corners and lots of roots and steep hills as well, so I'd like something that can blow through corners and accelerate quickly. But, I also ride a lot of tight technical trails so I'd like something that's torquey and has explosive, yet controllable power and something I can take over big logs and rocks. I'm fine with a bike that likes to be revved a lot as that's what I do on my 250xcf now. I'm used to four strokes although I'll probably adjust to a two stroke very quickly as I ride constantly. I'm leaning towards a 250 XC or a 350 XC-F although I've heard lots about KTM's 125 and 150 2 strokes, the 450 and 500, the wide ratio "w" models of the cross country bikes, and their respective motocross models just because I know how explosive they are. I understand that this is a lot to ask out of one bike but I'm going to be adding a lot of aftermarket parts to whatever I end up getting if it doesn't already have any. Tell me all about these bikes if any of you guys have ridden them! I'm probably going KTM because I've heard nothing but good things about them but I will still consider any other brands as well. Tell me any aftermarket you had to do, improvements to be done or downfalls of each bike, and all their advantages and things they're better at than the other ones if you've ridden more than one of these. This is more of a harescramble/cross-country racing post, but since some of my races have parts of motocross tracks I'd like to hear how they do on the track. Also, money isn't too huge of a concern with me but I will definitely not be able to get a brand new bike. I will be racing so if it's bigger than a 250 then I'll have to be sure that it can compete with bigger bikes. Thanks, in advance!
  13. I'm starting this thread to serve as a place to ask questions about Apex Technical Innovations cylinder heads (300XC, 300XC-W, 300XC TPI, 300 XC-W TPI). Picking the right dome or domes for you is an important part of making sure your bike is perfect for you and I'm happy to serve as a resource here or in direct messages. I welcome any technical questions as well and encourage anyone with experience with us to share your setups, riding conditions, and results. Your feedback helps us continue to evolve and can help others with their decision making process. Thanks in advance! Matt from Apex
  14. Hey I can't seem to find an aftermarket crank for my 2016 300XC. For some reason wiseco and prox don't make them. Are there any options other than stock? Thanks
  15. I did it. Finally quit beating around the bush and decided to go for it. Now the proud owner of a bran-USED 2014 KTM 350 XC-F. Bought it today, only had the chance to ride it down the road and back and I think I’m in for a treat. Previously had a 250 XC that I bought used November of 2016. Kept buying parts and constantly working on it to get it where I want it, but with out any luck so I decided to go back on the four stroke route. Anyone have any recommendations for aftermarket on it? It already has a lot including a skid plate, boyesen super cooler water pump, hand guards, rear brake rotor guard, radiator braces, mouse bibs in the tires, brand new Dunlop MX 3 S tires, radiator fan, shorai lithium battery, side grab bar, and ktm silicone hoses.
  16. Hi guys, probably a stupid question here, but I figure you can never be too safe. I have some Motorex 15w-50 from my 2010 KTM 250 XC (which I sold) and I was wondering if it would be okay to run in my 2014 KTM 350 XC-F which calls for Motorex 10w-50? What would be the side effects of running a 15w-50 instead of a 10w-50? Also, if you have any suggestions of good oil to run, please feel free to recommend it and give your reasons why. Thanks guys. (Attached is my 350)
  17. Since the 2017 series is over I figured I'd share my experience/time racing the series... some entertainment for those who aren't riding as much anymore this time of the year. This is my first time racing a series and pretty much racing in general. I entered the Open B class on board my KTM 300 XC and was able to compete in 8 out of the 9 rounds held. I do include more footage of each event at the end of some vlogs... so if you were there watching or racing, you are probably caught on camera. Enjoy!
  18. I have a 2010 KTM XC that revs and idles well in neutral but starts bogging immediately when I put it in gear. I have put the stock jets and needle in the carburetor and cleaned it out. I have moved the air screw from 1 turn to 4 turns out, but this doesn't really change the bogging-in-gear issue. The bike has about 186 hours on it and was rebuilt at 100 hours. Any idea what could be causing this?
  19. Stopped by my local KTM dealer today to pick up some premix oil for my 300. I asked if they had any on the floor to sell. Reply: nope, all sold out, won't get any more 2017 models. Said that they have sold and delivered some 250 two-strokes with the 300 top-end for folks who were desperate for a 300. I have heard that 300s get hard to find once Spring is here, that most folks get them over the winter to be ready to ride as soon as Spring hits. Are they still available in other areas (not-PA?)? The dealer had heard only the same press releases that we all know about one model 2018 250 two stroke with fuel injection in very limited quantities in late 2017. No 300s with fuel injection in the US for 2018. Which may mean that the 2018 300s will still have the Mikuni and be available in the usual late July early August. But that is just speculation.
  20. Good morning, Long time lurker on the site. finally made an account. I am new to owning a ktm, just picked a 2012 300xc that im pumped about. Im trying to nail down what is needed to put 2014 or newer plastics on the bike. Im tracking on the front fender mod and that shrouds should bolt but not sure about air box. I have found bits and pieces on TT but nothing solid. I also plan on putting a 14 or new xc-w mask and light on , rumor is that the wiring harness is the same and it will plug in . Can any one shine some light on this? mainly concerned about the plastics swap. , I can do electrical if need be. Thanks in advance .
  21. I've over heated my bike a couple of times this year and noticed (not surprisingly) that the coolant isn't reaching the top of the radiator when cold. I presume it should. Can I just add coolant or do I need to flush and add entirely? It's a 16 with around 55 hours on it. My issue with flushing is what to do with the used coolant. I certainly don't want to put it down the drain and I'm not sure my recycling center takes coolant, they don't take a lot of stuff besides engine oil.
  22. Hey guys I was wondering if any of you could help me out. I’ve got a 2010 KTM 250 XC that just doesn’t rip like a normal two stroke should. When I get up to the top end power it just signs off really early, causing me to shift really early. I can’t figure out why it’s doing that for the life of me. My jetting is spot on for th altitude I ride, the spark plug is a perfect brown coffee color, (170 main, 40 pilot, Suzuki NECJ Needle on 3rd clip) so it can’t be that. (I went with the Suzuki needle because I read on here that it could give it more top end, it did but not the amount it should have) and it I just put on new reed petals for the V-Force 4 reed system, new FMF Fatty and FMF Turbinecore 2 pipes, stock gearing (13:50), yellow power valve spring (red spring doesn’t help either) aggressive engine map, and it still signs off early on top. I bought the bike used, and the previous owner had it choked up so it acted more like a four stroke. The only thing I haven’t looked at is if it has a fly wheel weight, but that wouldn’t necessarily make it act less wild like a two-stroke, would it? I need some suggestions and I would greatly appreciate the help!
  23. Ya so will a 06 250sxf sub frame fit on a 2006 300XC? My freind said it will fit but the muffler mount might be different, has anyone tried this?
