    Dirty header FE501

    So, my header has gotten "stains" on it from riding in the rain. I'd really like to get it looking all shiny again.. Any pro tips?
  2. It’s been a muddy first few weeks of ownership with our new dirt bikes. We’ve found our drive chains completely encased in mud, or more specifically, Georgia red clay — which is tacky and persistent of the highest order. In reading some threads on cleaning chains, I have taken notice of advice not to use a pressure washer on O-ring chains. Oops. Didn’t know that (first time having such a chain). I am hoping just 3 washings so far won’t have done too much damage. But how else to get this level of mud off? Brush only? Pressure washer, but very carefully? (And if so, how?) I would prefer not to have to remove the chain to clean it if possible. Thanks!
  3. Hey, I'm wondering how often the Powervalve system should be cleaned (namely KX100) for woods riding. Thanks!
  4. Hey guys, thanks to some great advice on this site I bought my first bike, a 2016 KTM 250 SXF. I rode it for the first time Saturday and I have a new love. I brought it home, washed it with mild soap and a hose, hand cleaned anything around electrical wires, checked the fluids and sprayed chain lube on the chain/sprockets. I'm wondering if there is anything else I should have done. I also heard that a good way to clean the air filter is by soaking it in gasoline....sounds kinda crazy. I bought filter oil for it. Thanks guys
  5. It's been "monsoon season" here in the Southeast (to credit another post)...and so there's nary a spec of dust not held down by moisture. Put another way, there's never any dust on me or the bike after a day of riding. Mud? Yes. Dust, no. Which leaves me wondering, when do I next need to clean and oil my air filter? It looks darn clean, but perhaps the very intake airflow removes the oil? Or the oil simply evaporates sitting in the garage? Any suggestions on how often to clean/oil when conditions do not suggest it is needed would be appreciated!
