    Traded labor to rebuild repair problems as a result of the drive chain derailing, bunching up @ front sprocket on a 2011 KTM 450-SXF. Support(who? & poor quality) at the 2011 Lorretta Lynn's Amsoil Amature National couldn't figure out the clunking/clocking noise in neutral (No, it was not the famous clutch basket rattle), as a result of the chain derailment. In their tear down/D & I, the repair service installed the incorrect piston rings.

    1985 XR200R 4-valve frame w/ 1981 XR200R 2-Valve(2V) conversion: I salvaged 3 blown 1985 XR200R frames around 1998. Started Conversion/Install of 81' 2V mid 2005. = $200 Bartered for Amsoil 81' 2V motor mods in order as performed: 1) Powroll Header w/ Supertrapp: multidisc USFS spark arrester = $200 81'-83' UNOBTAINABLE NEW 2019 Powroll out of Business 2) Hi-flow gauze filter: modified 81' air box = $30 81-85' NEW? $???.?? 3) 81' Ported cylinder head: 10-20hrs. x $40.00 hr.(Labor of LOVE for Personal engines) = $200-$300 my labor worth (Selling myself short by about $60.00 per Hr.) 4) 28mm Mikuni round: slide w/ spigot-hose-hose clamp conversion = $125 81'85' NEW $???.?? 2019 5) Powroll Piston Kit: 11.5:1 C.R. 1st step oversize (65-66mm?) creating 198cc (?) = $150 86'-90' While Pete Fisher was still involved in Powroll 6) Powroll Stroker Crankshaft: creating 218cc. Piston dome modified for lower compression 10.5:1, using Powroll piston pin to top of piston dome height measurements guide. This is per Pete Fisher's recommendations, as their Engine Dyno testing proved 11:1 was best CR. Greater CR produced primarily >heat only. including many new parts = $350 83'-90' While Pete Fisher was still involved in Powroll 7) 81' Cyl. Head: Pre-Ported myself, Re-Ported & flowed by Powroll. I sent my ported cylinder head to see "How Good" or "How Bad" I did w/o using Flo-Bench testing. = = $150 86'-90' While Pete Fisher was still involved in Powroll 8: Megacycle NS Camshaft: "Torque" grind needle bearing camshaft = $150 used in 87' = $500.00 New 2019 9) 28mm Mikuni FLAT Slide: w/ short spigot plug in type (2-Smoke) manifold used primarily on 1st gen. frame. This created a very, very short Intake runner. = = $60.00 used 87' = $???.?? New 2019 10) 28mm Mikuni ROUND Slide w/ Welded/modified flange: due to 85' frame geometry, also used on 1st Gen frames originally. This uses OEM LONG Intake runner. = $50.00 used/damage in 83' = $???.?? New if available at all 1982'-1990' Rough Guestimate Cost Engine related PARTS ONLY = $1500.00 Value invested in this bike has not been determined yet. I have posted $$ in what I remember in approximate amounts and time periods. I have most receipts and part #'s of what was used. So, eventually I hope to post them and the actual costs for giggle factor. I have rated this bike like most XR200s and XR200Rs I have ridden and owned up to my Paddock years only, excluding 4-Valve motor, which I have never even heard run (Good Luck on that one) much less ridden. RATING = 5 Great Big Stars = Most smiles per mile, in this case hours ridden!! Thanks for reading/looking if you made it this far in my snore-fest XR/XL-125-185-200S/R 2v experiences.

    I will get a picture up as soon as possible. The picture of the XR is just for the Seal Savers Review. After many years of laborious labor of love upgrading my 1981 XR-200R and trying to stuff it into a 00' YZ-426-F frame, My loving? Wife offered to let me "Buy a New Dirt Bike" for our 10th Anniversary September 2002. Well, after much hemming & hawing and being the cheap scape I am, I found a NUSED 2002 KTM MXC400-RFS. Bike was manufactured Feb. 2002, sold new for roughly $8000 and now being sold Sept. 02' for $4900.00 with about 10 hrs. per seller. A lot of money to me since, I had barely paid that much for a new car, much less used dirt bike. Since returning from Texas in 90 all the North Carolina Trail Riders(NCTR) rave were over how great KTMs were. Got to admit the 93' 300 EXC I rode briefly in the Daniel Boone NF pulled almost better than my Stroker XR200R down low. So after seeing this 400 MXC in Cycle News, talking with seller and doing minor research I decided, it was now my turn to buy a Kronreif & Trunkenpolz Mattighofen. My Wife and I drove to Kings Dominion, I test drove the bike in a truck stop parking lot. First impression heavy dead weight @247lbs dry/>260lbs w/ fuel @ 8#s/gallon, slow feeling (like the last 84' XR-500R I rode) for a New Gen 4-stroke, but what the Hey, I'm going for it?after driving 3+ hrs just to window shop. About 1 year later, following Spring 03, the NCTR club had it's Second annual Mini Single Track/Trail Shoot Out, in the Curtis Mountain area. The "NCTR Shootout" members was composed of primarily Serious Seasoned Experienced Dirt Bike Riders/Racers ranging from 18-near 50, weights 120#-200#+. One of the purposes was to let members try out different bikes in trail systems we were actually riding in MEANING "EAST COAST SINGLE TRACK" rather than the West Coast areas all the Purdy Mags wrote consistently about. Between 8+ or so bikes, 1) 98' KTM-380 EXC 2) 92' Yam. WR-500 3) 00' KTM 400 SX-RFS 4) 02(?)03' Yam-YZ-250F 5) 02/03(?) KTM-200-EXC 6) 03' KTM-450 RFS-EXC 7) 02' KTM 400MXC-RFS 8( 02/03 KTM 250-EXC 2-smoke. There was most likely a couple more 2-smokes, but I don't remember what KTMs, YAMs, ZUKs, KAWs?? The terrain we chose likened to the old "Cross Country, Hair Scrambles or Enduro trails we use to race on. Similar to some of the Brown Mountain and Uwharrie Nat. Forest Trail Systems. This trail system was pre-run by all riders to point out markers and familiarize route. Overgrown logging skid paths strewn with limbs fallen trees here and there, side track hill trail, a couple hill climbs, Exposed rock, loose crush and run shale gravel on connector dirt maintained roads, woods switch back with some stream crossings and of course tree roots every where along the way. The soil is primarily tacky red clay, decomposed leave mulch loose top layer on hard pack w/ typical mountain type rock exposed throughout. Moisture content of soil typical of woods riding with wet shady areas and dry trail in open sunny areas(NEAR PERFECT). There were 2 routes, one having more "Difficult Trail" than the other. We staged in a lower flat open woods area and allowed everyone to ride their personal bike and be timed throughout the different sections with times recorded. Then, each member could ride other members bikes for comparison of how their performance on another 2-smoke or 4-stroke of their Interest or Curiosity. Some of the bikes were modified w/ "Terrain Tamer" or bone stock, including Factory Spark arrestors to racing pipes, systems. The bikes ranged from Converted MXers(00'SX_RFS, 03(?)YZ-F, Enduro (98'-03 EXCs), Cross Country/Desert(91'WR, 02MXC). Bike Ride Times were stop watched measured and Recorded on each individual bike and Rider. KTM Memory of Exact date Fall 02 or Spring 03 fails me. I do remember this was one of the first woods rides for my NUSED Shiny Orange machine. I do know, I had been Motocross practicing this bike in Eastern North Carolina terrain. Major Woods riding had not been attempted up to this point. I might have put 5-8 hours on bike. Maybe one oil change(?) The suspension on the bike had been adjusted for sag Rear and Front per KTM owner's manual. System had been set up for more MX vs. woods/trails. Clickers had been set for harsher terrain per manual again. WP USD 4357 MXMA EXC forks(great for woods/BAD for MX) and PDS 5018 MCC EXC shock are the stock suspension components for the MXC. The engine is the same 4V SOHC w/ 400 SX tuning, & with close ratio SX 6 speed transmission, not wide ratio 6 sp. in 400/520 EXC. The MAGIC BUTTON, Standard for RFS motors on MXCs and 12V/110W charging/lighting system, not on SX-RFS or SX 2-smokes though. Fuel tank is the humongous Baja/Desert 13L/3.5 gallon w/ the radiator protection actually being fuel capacity for the tank. Standard 21" front with 18" rear wheels. Magura Fat bars w/ adjustable mounting. Magura Hydraulic actuated clutch system works like "Butta"?. If you get a hydraulic clutch bike & then go back to a mechanical cable, YOU will SEE/Feel the advantages of smoother actuation, less hand/finger fatigue & GREATER CLUTCH CONTROL. Front 260mm/Rear 220mm brakes are Brembo Excellent for the year. The "Hard as a Rock" Seat/tank transition is relatively flat considering the tank size making cockpit easy to move about in. The triple tree is 20(?)mm offset. Forks are closed chambers(?) When all the dust settled, the consensus, by the times of the riders, on all the different bikes showed the KTM MXC 400-RFS & the KTM EXC-300 were the bikes that had the best times among all the bikes tested by different riders. Unfortunately, for me, I busted my "Arse" on a limb fallen at 45 degrees to the trail and re-cracked my ribs, that were injured, a couple months prior, when I blew out of a high sandy bowl berm and the bike landed on top of me. So, after the first run, I found out how fast this sluggish heavy feeling 4-stroke was in the woods, obviously faster than I knew how to handle it.

    While I rode motocross on a 2-stroke 79' CR125R Red Rocket twin shocker, 1st one Honda of Wilson sold. My brother and others had already been Enduro racing 79' XR-185 w/ Honda's Power up kit (pipe & 200cc jug) and serious Cross Country racing/riding XR200 twin shock frame bikes. For me at the time I was motocross racing and woods play riding by building various 75' CR-250m framed Kawasaki KL-250 engine(The Kawonda) and TL/SL/XL 100-125 combinations from various left over parts. After riding these bikes local play riding, we graduated up to Uwharrie National Forest for fast rock strewn challenging single track trail riding & extreme trail hill climbing(circa:79'-86'). I bought the first drastically improved handling 1981 "Pro-Link" XR200R Honda of Wilson received in 81'. This first bike was the basis for the Pro-Link framed 200 motor modifications I actually still have. This 81'XR200R was purchased in 1983 with no compression due to choke flap screw that came loose and got sucked into engine through carb. The screw got peened between top of head into piston sticking top compression ring into ring groove and causing loss of engine compression. At this point the performance modifications of porting the cylinder head started and replacing piston w/ 66mm 10.5:1 CR from Powroll. We had already been replacing stock Kehien 26mm carb primarily due to blubbering poor carbureaution (possible float level issues), with easier to tune(jets available) 28mm Mikuni, round slide w/o choke plate/flap, and opening up air box with 3" hole drilled in top & gauze type less restrictive high air-flo filter. Powroll header with Supertrap wafer disc exhaust to help with weight and flow. I started racing bike at local flat track turned MX around 1984. I actually found this bike very competitive against 2-stroke 125 full on motocrossers. I ran amateur class as I felt not good enough for Pro class. Around then I started improving the suspension first with a 1980 CR250R complete front end. Then Fox Shox Twin Clicker for the rear. Both of these made for better handling on Mx tracks. I found used through Cycle News a Fox Factory Forx set up, a Calfab aluminum swingarm in need of repair and rear hub with Sun 18" rear rim with stainless steel spokes. These improvements made motocross riding the bike more feasible but still lacked full on MX capability.
