  1. 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?
  2. For all of you lucky enough to own an '18 300 XC-W, what kind of deals could one get around this time of year? I know the '19s will be launching within the next few months. I'm wondering if I should wait until their release and save $$$ on a leftover '18. I'm on the eastern side of the U.S. by the way. Let's see the final OTD numbers!
  3. 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!!
  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~$500 and the issue still persist, if it's a jetting/carb/float issue that would fix it and improve MPH/fuel consumption Or something with the PV? but I don't see the PV causing that much smoke/sploogee... I've ridden the bike normally/hard and nothing's happened but I don't want to keep pushing it and possibly clip the bike. Any ideas? "Oh help me 2 stroke community you're my only hope"
  5. So, I am now the proud owner of a 2021 KTM 300 XC-W erzbergrodeo. I thought I'd just post a follow up here for any other Californians who are tempted to buy a bike out of state like I did... read this and be better prepared than I was. It wasn't HARD, it was just time-consuming (as is everything involving the CA DMV). Buying the bike was the easy part. I bought my XCW from Gresham Powersports, east of Portland, OR. They were totally cool to deal with. All the paperwork was done remotely. I had to get some signatures notarized and then sent them that paperwork via UPS. Once that was in their hands it was a done deal. So, last Thursday afternoon, I left Auburn and headed north. Stayed on Southern OR Thursday night and then drove the rest of the way Friday early am. Got to the dealer at about 10:30a. I was all done there and loaded up by 11:30a. Then, I hit the road back to CA - got home about 9:30p. &%$#@! me that's a long ass drive... 1,200 miles in ~30hrs. Rained off & on in both directions. Got home & rested. Sunday, I rode the bike @ Mammoth Bar (my local rinky-dink OHV area) for a couple of hours to break it in. Went to the Auburn DMV today to complete the paperwork. At least they have online appointments now - you can get in (virtual) line via their website and you get notified via text a number then you monitor the webpage to see what position in line you are. Way overdue. But, &%$#@!. I hate the CA DMV. First I had to actually take the bike in the have the VIN verified - and they won't do it while it's still in the truck. So I unload it. They look at the VIN & engine number and match it to the paperwork/MSO. FFS. Ok. Done. Check. Next I had to prove to them that the bike was approved for a red sticker (a CA thing) - by providing them a copy (I had to give them a printed copy) of a document from KTM (which I found here: https://www.southbayriders.com/forums/attachments/551312/). Of course they could have totally looked at the document online, and even printed it at the DMV.... But, OH, NO... I had to get a printed copy. Got document copied. Back to DMV. Gave them copy. Paid use-tax, paid sales-tax. Got red sticker. Good until June '23. Done and dusted. Did I mention, I &%$#@!ing HATE the DMV? Now if you bought from a CA dealer, this would all be handled for you. But when I called around CA dealers there were none left in CA...
  6. BTW, First time starting a post...anywhere. Sorry if I did something wrong. 07 KTM300XC-W Leaking at counterpart seal. Bike just got new top end by Freedom Cycle in Concofd,NH. They replaced the cylinder, cleaned/tuned the carb, replaced my leaking counterpart seal. They said it leaked for them but found the crankcase breather had been purposely plugged and replaced the rubber hose. Said leak was fixed. I rode it for 10 minutes around my yard and it was an oily mess around the front sprocket but other than that, it ran great. They said the shift was fine and didn't need expensive replacement. Any ideas? Old guy needs help!
  7. As the title states I'm currently running a 2014 Husky FE450 .. brilliant bike has REGO for the road and comes with set of motard wheels+ dirt wheels oversize brakes + Rekluse clutch along with many enduro parts FC muffler etc so awesome 4st ... been awesome having a two in one kind of bike but as we know that can also mean its not perfect at either >> so yet again after many harder enduro rides over the summer ..I'm yearning for the new steed >>well prob 2x ... one likely to be a KTM duke ,, the other a pure enduro beast weight is my main issue with the 2014 FE450 >> 249lbs dry great 90% of the time ... but during some of the harder enduro sections in the mountains events locally it can really wear you out and if you for any reason have an issue the weight just compounds those issues ...usually this can see me making mistakes and ending rolling down hills then restarting in some horrible locations >>Rekluse auto clutch has been brilliant in helping I'm a converted ... pretty experience off-road-enduro rider 30yrs+ .. (along with near on 20x different dirt bikes over those years) 175lbs -6ft tall - fast -tech enduro focus mate had a 18 KTM 350exc thats 17lbs+ lighter ...I'm certainly tempted to checkout out 2017++ 350 .. FX,XCF,EXC,FE ... My last light enduro bike was an enduronlize 97 RM250 .... loved the 2ST fun factor so very light great suspension bad too low geared .... so also tempted to go down the 2017+ KTM 250xc / exc or HUSKY TE250 ...Gasgas (not a fan of the KTM 300exc I rode ..I like some top-end in my 2st + lighter feel ). So yes you can see I'm KTM owned bikes focused ..got a friend thats a KTM mechanic + I like the higher tech parts they come stock with ... I need not only lighter weight but decent fuel range ...also decent top speed 70mph + so 6spd
  8. Do you guys cover up your speedo somehow when washing your bike? I'm unsure as to how water resistant these are.
  9. My 2018 250 TPI has had a new map from KTM and starting problem is gone. However, it is smoking like crazy, even after running it wide open for about 15 minutes. Anyone else experiencing this? I just want to make sure something isn't wrong before my 30 day factory warranty is up. Also, my display turns off when sitting and idling. Is this normal? Seems like it should stay on while bike is running.
