  1. Hello, i have bought few weeks ago a clutch lever of MIDWEST for my ktm enduro 690 2008 year , after the replacement i have notice that the shifting is not as smooth as it was with the original shift. time to time it can be hard for a second to shift a gear but a quick release and pressure will resolve it , it may be my squeeze strength but i have no such experience with the old original clutch level of magura . anyway the old cluch lever was having a spring attached to it , in the instruction of the new clutch there is a statement to disregard the spring from the setup. may it be that the old clutch was more smooth because of it ? also when adjusting the midwest clutch lever i notice that if i squeeze the bolt in the front to much my clutch start slipping at high speed as it was squeezed . my question would be : is anyone experience such problems or similar with that clutch lever (it seems like it not fully COMPATIBLE with the bike) ? i own ktm enduro 690 , 2008 model
  2. I'm working on a friends 2007 ktm sxf250 and the bike runs like crap, I completely disassemble the carb and set it in a cleaner over night. I took it out the next morning and cleaned all the jets and passages with pressurized air. I put everything back together and it still won't start. The only way to get the bike to start is by turning the idle all the way up and turning it back down, now that the bike is started and the idle stew is turned down, you got to constantly give gas to keep the think going. I took it out on a ride and the bike ran fine until you pull the clutch in, at this point the bike stalls without any hesitation. To start the bike I need to repeat the whole prosedure to get it started. I have another buddy with an 08' and his bike is extremely cold blooded and takes forever to warm up. I'm not sure if there's an issue with the carb or the bike just needs its sweat time to warm up. PLEASE HELP!
  3. Hi, New member here! I am interested in 2 bikes, the KTM 125 SX and 150 SX. I know the 150 SX is obviously got a bit more power but I am wondering what the exact differences are. Is it just the cylinder and piston or are there other changes? I am wondering because if there are big differences that means that parts made for the 125 SX won't fit the 150 SX. Most parts are for 125/250/300 bikes I assume. I am assuming that they are very much the same which means that if for example a company makes an exhaust for the 125 SX then it would fit on the 150 SX. I hope that is true. My other question is on the Power Valve system. Does KTM use that Power Valve with the green, yellow and red springs for the 125 SX and 150 SX? Or is it that other one one with that notch? Any help is glady appreciated! Sorry I am also fairly dumb when it comes to bikes, although I used to ride a lot, as it has been a while. I have forgotten a lot about riding.

  5. Do you guys know the skid plate people are buying for the ktm 500 which goes on and off quickly by way of zip ties in the rear and a bolt in the front? I believe it's an Acerbis, but I can't tell which model is built to accommodate the zip ties. Picking up my 2018 500 exc-f tomorrow, I want to get the skid plate on asap. Thanks!

    Ktm two stoke blows up again

    Hey guys, I bought a new project bike off of my brother. I will give a bit of history before I explain what is wrong with it. It first blew up do to an air filter not being put on right. The dirt got in there and did its quick job. We rebuilt it and also changed the air boot going from the carb to the engine because it was starting to crack. On the second most recent blow up, he started it up one day and it sounded like ting ting ting ting. He shut it off. When I got there, I started it so I could listen and almost immediately it died. I ripped it apart, and the piston is scored. Surprisingly the head looks fine, cylinder looks surprisingly good (can still see the crosshatch from the last rebuild), the reeds are ok, and I just don't know about the crankshaft. I have rebuilt a CR before that had a bad crankshaft, and I found it very hard to feel any up and down play until I removed it. It defiantly has a LOT of side to side play. The only other thing I noticed was that there was no liquid gasket in-between the reed cage and the air boot. Also the 4 bolts were too loose for my liking. From what I can see, I narrowed it down to one of two things: 1. The crankshaft lost its bearings and scored the piston (that theory doesn't really go along with the fact that usually the top of the piston and head look mashed because of all the bearings) 2. It had an air leak in between the air boot and reeds If anyone has any theory or questions please let me know.
  8. So my 125 is bogging so much that is stalls when riding. It can be fine for a small amount of time, maybe half a lap but thats it, its fine when on the stand no bog at all. I took apart the top end today as I've read it could be the power valve, the bike has 4 laps on the new top end. The Z adjustment is out by 4mm, although it was perfect when rebuild was done. But the connecting rod won't move in order to adjust the Z measurement. I undone the screw the red arrow is pointing to and then moved the adjuster the blue arrow is pointing to but the rod does not move. Any advice?

    Ktm 520 sx

    I recently bought a 2000 ktm 520sx. Im new to the world of street riding and have some questions. I took it for a short ride today and it would die every time I would come to a stop and would be difficult to kickstart it again. The guy I bought it from had it jetted for 6000' elevation. I talked to the local mechanic and he said I need to adjust the main jet and the needle and probably the fuel mixture screw. Is there anything easy I can do in the meantime to make it easier to start and also easier to keep running. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    530 clutch issues

    So... clutch works fine the hole day riding then i go back home to do a oil change, first one after top end rebuild. After that i leave my house and ride for 10min then suddenly clutch loses pressure completely but comes back little bit after few pumps. So then i check the fluids, and there really isn't any. I fill it up and pump the air out of the system so no more air coming out but sill lacking pressure. Now here it starts getting interesting, when i hold my clutch it engages the clutch but after 5 sec holding it in it loses all pressure. Also it feels very soft when the clutch lever is all the way out when i start pulling it engages. I have bled it the correct way and got all the dirty stuff out. There are no visible leaks and i have replaced the slave gasket. All help is appreciated
  12. Hi Thumpertalkers, Just making a thread where I can share my videos as I make them. I will start the post with posting a few old ones until I get some more new ones. I'm no expert by any means just have fun making and sharing videos! Thanks lars
  13. Doing a job for a guy who dropped a valve in his 08 450 EXC. Got the bike not running obviously and send out all the parts to get remachhined and fixed. Got everything back together and I'm pretty sure I got it back to TDC. Cam lobes face right way, bolt locked in on crank slit, and mark lined up on top of cam holder. Everything spun over fine but when I bolt it back up and have the motor ready to fire it won't kick, tried battery and seemed dead. Bought a new battery and charged it still won't go. The battery will turn the motor over if the spark plug is out but once it has compression it's slow and groggy. Any ideas what's wrong? I'm going mad trying to figure it out. All valves are brand new and in spec, same with top end and cylinder.

    KTM 50 LC Pro Senior Kicker Issue

    So awhile back I got my little brother a KTM 50LC Pro Senior. When I got it the clutch and brakes where toasted so I got that all up to speed and he stated doing laps around the yard. All things are good until a few weeks ago. We went out for an actual ride where he could open it up a bit. Few hours of seat time in we stop for lunch and hop back on the bikes. The little KTM isn't starting so I get over it for a few kicks and realize something is wrong. I instantly thought piston and rings due to the kicker being extremely easy to move. I pulled the dome off and realized that compression was good but I can basically just touch the piston and move the kicker with no movement from the piston. Not sure if its part of the kicking system that's messed up or the clutch is toasted again. Just looking for some insight before I dig in any more. I do notice that the kicker doesn't really "let go" after the kick, it just stops the piston and all at once.

    KTM 380 Cylinder

    Hey guys. Im in a toss up with the, hopefully, last part of my KTM build... I need a 380 cylinder. I was ready to ship it off to LA Sleeve but was thinking about price and figured if a new one is $800 i might as well go that route. i found one on Babbitt"s for $717 shipped, not knowing if it is truly in stock. Any KTM guys out there know of anywhere to get one cheaper or know of a place that 100% has them available? Any help would be amazing.
  16. KTM FACTORY RACING READY FOR WORLD ENDURO SUPER SERIES Enduro Announcement Red Bull KTM Factory Racing are excited to officially unveil their four-rider line-up for this year’s inaugural World Enduro Super Series. Hard enduro specialists Taddy Blazusiak, and Jonny Walker will be joined by classic enduro experts Josep Garcia and Nathan Watson. FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Cody Webb also joins the team. The World Enduro Super Series combines a mix of hard enduro, classic enduro as well as cross-country and beach racing events in a seven-round series run over the course of 2018. WESS offers a new challenge to the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team and will provide a true test of skill, stamina and adaptability. Opening with the Extreme XL Lagares hard enduro in Portugal on May 11-13, each of KTM’s five official riders will bring their own unique skills set to the new series. All hoping to excel in their specialist events, in the races in which they have less experience the focus is very much on rising to new challenges. Only at the climax of the season will the ‘Ultimate Enduro Champion’ be crowned. Multiple world champion Taddy Blazusiak cites the WESS as the main reason for his return to competition. The Erzbergrodeo winner sees the WESS as a stand-out title he’d like to add to his already glowing CV. Taddy narrowly missed out on claiming a seventh world title at the final round of the 2018 SuperEnduro World Championship and is more fired up than ever to win the World Enduro Super Series. Taddy Blazusiak: “I believe the WESS is what enduro needs at the minute to progress as a sport. I am really excited about the championship and I am really looking forward to the start of it. To be honest, I like every single event on the calendar. They are all unique and very special and from the first to the last race I think it is going to be really good fun. Part of the biggest challenge is going from the SuperEnduro series straight into the outdoor races and then having to adapt to all the different styles of events. My ultimate goal is definitely to do all I can to win the World Enduro Super Series, that’s why I am back racing. I really believe I have a shot at it – I am going to do everything I can to make it happen.” Experienced hard enduro rider Jonny Walker is another with his eye on the WESS title. The former Erzberg winner is as at home racing on a beach as he is in extreme conditions. An excellent all-rounder, Jonny is highly-motivated ahead of the new championship start. Jonny Walker: “I’m really looking forward to the start of the World Enduro Super Series. It’s a new challenge for everybody and should make for some really good racing. To be honest, I’m not looking forward to just one race either, I’m looking forward to the full series. We have Erzberg and Romaniacs, which I have done before, but there’s also a few races like Le Trefle and the Red Bull Knock Out beach race which pose new challenges. I think to win the series, consistency will be key. I have a lot of learning to do, but my goal is to try and win as many races as possible and hopefully be in a good place come the final rounds of the series.” 2017 Enduro2 World Champion Josep Garcia has spent the off-season focusing on the WESS and the different styles of riding required to excel in the series. Previously Garcia’s training would consist solely of special test enduro and motocross practice, with hard enduro now added to the Spaniard’s calendar Josep has been spending a lot of time on his KTM 300 EXC TPI, to familiarize himself with terrain synonymous with some of the world’s toughest offroad races. Josep Garcia: “The World Enduro Super Series will be a massive new challenge for me. There are a lot of different races, sand races, extreme and classic enduro. It’s going to be a very interesting year. It will be difficult, but my goal is of course to win. I believe that with the right training and if I can gain some knowledge from my more experienced team-mates, I will be in with a chance. I really enjoy the technical riding and I have been putting a lot of work in. It will be interesting to see if it has all paid off come the first race in Portugal.” Nathan Watson’s background in motocross and beach racing sees him as one of the favorites to take the win at the final round of the WESS, the Red Bull Knock Out in the Netherlands. Similar to team-mate Garcia, it will be the hard enduros that pose the biggest challenge to the young Brit. Following two years of riding classic enduro Watson knows where his strengths lie and where he needs to concentrate his training. Nathan Watson: “I’m really excited to be a part of the World Enduro Super Series. It’s going to be a big challenge for all of us as it’s made up of so many different types of enduro. I know the extreme races will be tough for me, I have never done one before but I know what to expect. I have been doing a lot of specialist training, so hopefully it will pay off. Of course, the event I’m looking forward to the most is the final round – the Red Bull Knock Out. I love beach races, I have ridden beach races all my life so I am really confident in the sand and it has to be one of my favorite types of terrain. I think the winner of the whole series will be the rider who makes the most of his strengths, while minimizing his losses – hopefully that can be me.” FMF KTM Factory Racing’s Cody Webb recently added the 2018 SuperEnduro World Championship to his 2017 Endurocross title. On form and ready to take on the WESS challenge, the former trials rider is looking forward to contesting the different styles of events but is aware of the size of the task ahead of him. Cody Webb: “The World Enduro Super Series is a whole new thing and I’m really excited to be a part of it. It’s going to be really crazy doing all these different events, you’ve got classic enduro, extreme, beach races – it’s going to really help me branch out and widen my abilities. With the WESS, there are so many different types of riding, but fortunately riding for KTM, I have got a great choice of machinery for all the different disciplines we will ride during the series. For the extreme stuff I think I will be riding the new KTM 300 EXC TPI 2-stroke, but for the classic enduros I will probably stay on the KTM 350 EXC-F. On the beach I think I will be riding the KTM 450 EXC-F – I’m a decent sized guy so I need all the power I can get. I can’t wait to get started and hopefully by the end of the year I’ll have a chance at taking the title.” The first round of the World Enduro Super Series is Extreme XL Lagares, Portugal on May 11-13.

  17. Hey everyone, As the title says when i pull the clutch in on my 04 KTM 125 it either stalls unless i give it a bit of gas and will move slowly forwards with the clutch lever fully pulled in. The clutch is a magura hydraulic clutch and the problem only just happened on a recent ride and never has happened before. I put some extra oil in before the ride due to a very small oil leak from the gasket where the hydraulic clutch slave connects to the engine, not sure if this changes anything though. So my main question is would it be the air in the system for the hydraulic clutch or would it be the actual clutch plates or basket (really hoping it is not). Thanks for reading hope everything made sense, feel free to ask questions.
  18. Checking my valve clearances and trying to take out the cam chain tensioner. Seems the frame blocks the removal, if I just unscrew the unit as a whole, bring it out to give slack, can I then just screw it back in or do I need to reset the tensioner? Anyone have a way to get this out without removing the head?

    KTM Stator

    Recently purchased s 2005 KTM 250 exc. I am out of state from where the bike is currently stored and am trying to get info about the stock stator. Looking at OEM part schematics, I find that this year and model apparently could have either the 2k-2 stator with about 35-40W output or the 2k-3 stator with a better/higher output (https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/oem-schematic/21). The bike currently has no head light but allegedly it used to when it was bought. Is there an easy way to know which stator is actually on my bike without pulling it out and actually looking at it or testing the output? Or should I assume that if no one has done the upgrade to 2k-3 stator that it would have a 2k-2 stator by default? Next question: If the bike has 2k-2 stator, what would be the brightest light I could get for relatively decent price. Broad question, I know. But if anyone has some really standout recommendations for older type bikes, I would appreciate it. Thanks!
