  1. Hello everyone just looking for a new bike between a ktm 450 xcf or sx and a ktm 300 xc which one would go harder??
  2. I bought a used 2009 XC-W a few months ago. Things got a little fun and laid the bike down which damaged the mapping switch (PN K&S 12-0102). Ordered a Siccass replacement... and it doesn't match the carb jetting. Runs like crap. Looked up the K&S part and it's listed as a Kill Switch and not a map switch. I'm new to bikes and don't know the best path forward; order a K&S? Try and re-jet to match new switch (friend says it's beyond my skills right now) or take to shop and spend money I don't want to. Advice or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

    2006 300 xc w

    I have the opportunity to get a 2006 ktm 300 xcw. Im trading 2 1986 250rs one with a lot of work done to the motor but the case blew out. The other one is just a parts bike. Im just wondering if the ktm is a good bike? I know its a good woods bike but how is it on the dunes or hill climbing? I dont ride track but i do like to jump occasionally. Is it worth it?

    Michigan has some kick ass Trails!

    We have been going on adventures every other weekend riding everything Michigan has to offer within a few hour distance of where we live. This is a short one of us playing around on the Moss Lake trails in Rapid River MI. It's not a bad trail, a little choppy for how many roots are on the trail but none the less fun as hell!

    New 250 TPI melting turn signal help

    So, I just picked up my new TPI on Friday. It's is dual sported and plated, but the stock exhaust is melting my rear right turn signal. Will changing to a different can like the FMF shorty fix this problem? On another note, bike takes 2-3 minutes to start even over 80 degrees out, but will be dropped off today at dealer hopefully for a fix. Thanks.

  7. couple months back on my way home from a 2 hour ride my bike lost compression and quit. lucky I was just by my driveway. pushed it back and immediately checked the spark plug and cylinder temps with a temp gun. all seamed fine. pulled reads and pipe. everything looked fine but no compression. pulled the head and found the top of the piston trashed from metal flying around. chunk went down beside the piston and scored the cylinder. bike had 59 hours and 2048km on it. pulled the motor and took it to the dealer for them to decide what happened. chunks of metal looks like bearing cage material but no play or evidence of anything wrong. the ktm tech found a bunch more chunks of metal in the bottom end but could not find out where It came from. ktm ended up paying for a new head, cylinder, piston, crankshaft and power valve along with all the associated gaskets, bearings and oil seals. total for parts was around 2900$ Cdn. I had to pay Labour as they couldn't find the source. Labour ended up being 730$ Cdn. motor is back and running great. I was happy with the result as it was 7 months out of warranty having never been back to the dealer with over 2000 km on it. here are pictures of the top end damage
  8. For the life of me, I cannot find any jetting charts for the 2010 KTM 530 xcw, why not? I purchased this used bike, bogs at low RPM. I'm at 2000 FT in AZ, the main is 175 jet, and idle 42 jet. Any advice?
  9. Howdy, I'll start off saying that my question is actually regarding a 2012 Husaberg TE250 but since they have virtually the same engine, I figured there would be more KTM 250 XCW owners that have encountered this problem. I got home yesterday from a race and went to start the bike up via kick. But as I pushed the lever down I could hear the electric start gears turning. Nothing sounds like it is grinding, just gears that are turning that shouldn't be turning. Also, immediately after my race I went to start the bike with the electric start and it definitely took a few extra turns of the motor to get running. It sounded more 'slappy' and rattly than normal as I held the start button down, but I was wiped out by that point so I can't be completely sure of what I was actually hearing(nor do I wish to recreate the noises by testing the electric start). Additional info... I had the clutch basket(which is attached to the gear that is engaged by the kick start) and inner clutch cover removed about 2 weeks ago to replace the shift lever shaft. This process included removing the kick start lever and the gear on the clutch basket, but not much else of the kick mechanism. I know I'm gonna have to open it up again but I just want to get an idea of what I should be looking for once the covers are off. I appreciate any wisdom you can share! Hoosleberg
  10. One day I noticed my clutch was no longer working and noticed fluid had been leaking out of the area around my clutch slave cylinder. I have replaced the gasket twice and each time it just leaks back out within about 5 mins of riding. Any idea to fix it?

    500 2-stroke conversion for KTM

    Anyone here seen this yet? Custom 500cc bolt-on kit for 2007-2016 KTM 250/300 2 strokes. It has e-start and a counterbalance shaft. https://www.facebook.com/brcracingcanada/
  12. Hi everyone, new to the forum seeking advice. I want to buy another bike. I've been riding a 2002 KTM 520 EXC and it's been a great bike but looking to upgrade to a newer 500 KTM or a 300 XCW. I ride mostly Northern California single track, double track, and occasionally fire roads. Having a plate is not a priority since I have a plated xr650. I'm 6'3'' and have always ridden big bore bikes, so bike weight hasn't been an issue....But I haven't ridden a 300 yet, and I hear they're awesome. Which model would you buy? Should I look at a Husky? If I buy used, what year range is best? Thanks!
  13. I have the following issue on a brand new 2019 KTM XCW 300. On low RPM, the engine is sputtering (sorry if I can't find a better word, I am not a native speaker) It feels like a cold engine but all the time, even after 3 hours of riding. Apart from that, the engine is a beast and if I open the throttle a bit then there is no issue. I tried updating to the latest firmware + change the reed valve from stock the vforce and back to stock again with no success. Any idea what might cause this and how to fix it? Here is a video of the issue:
  14. My Old/New 2008 KTM XCW 250.

    2003 KTM 200 EXC Jetting

    I recently bought a 2003 and tore the carb down just so I knew what it had for jetting. I found a 178 main, 48 pilot, and NOZG needle on 2nd clip from top. (Bike has totally stock exhaust and riding is about sea level). The 48 pilot caught my eye as I thought it should have been more like a 42 and was wondering if this is correct? Also what is the best needle to use and on what clip? Any help is appreciated, Thanks.

    2018 YZ250FX vs 2017 FX350/350XCF

    Hey all. I’m a newbie here so let me know if I’m in the wrong place. I’ll get straight down to it. I’m in the market for a new bike and have been thinking about what’s going to be best for me for a long time. Until recently I finally came to the conclusion that a new YZ250FX is my best option. My last bike was 2015 Yz250f which I loved. Now just yesterday I saw a local dealer advertise left over 17’ FX350’s for almost the same price as the YZ. What appeals to me about the Husky is that extra grunt. What doesn’t appeal to me is the suspension and handling and the reliability of the machine. Now I’ve never owned a KTM or Husky so I am basing those two factors on word of mouth only. Like I said, I loved my Yz250f and felt very at home on it, it has probably been the best bike I’ve owned to date. Yamaha reliability is also second to none which adds to my peace of mind on purchasing the YZ. One thing I wish it had was more power though. Obviously it’s only a 250f so you can’t expect it to go like a 450 (not really interested in 450s). I ride mostly trails and the occasional day at the mx track. The trails I ride are gravel based, loose, rocky, single trail, and also wide, fast, flowing, sand trails which is where I think my yz250f really shined, and where I had the most fun. I’m only a small rider at 145lbs which is why I’ve steered away from 450s. I’ve read a few forums and others have said the ktm and Husky 350s are unbeatable on the trail which is why I am in this dilemma. So basically what I’m trying to decide on is if that extra power is worth compromising for the YZ suspension, handling and usability. Feel free to make any other suggestions, including other bikes as I was also considering the YZ250X 2T. Thanks guys

    250XCW Fuel Leak Issues

    Rookie dirt bike rider and just recently bought a 2012 KTM 250-XCW. It started leaking fuel when the gas was turned on. Rebuilt the carb... still same issue. The fuel is coming from the bottom of the bowl when the valve is turned on and the bike isn't running. Any help is appreciated!

    Ktm 300xcw for me?

    So.... To begin with, I'm a 15 y/o, almost 16. I'm 5'7ish, and weigh around 135 pounds. I currently ride a ktm 105sx, bored to a 115, with a flywheel weight and trail gearing. Long story short, I'm bored out of my mind on it. It's quite peaky in low gears, and has no torque whatsoever past third - I mean it's gutless. The top speed is around 45mph, and I hit that quite frequently. I do all of my own maintenance, meaning I am very familiar with all of the bikes I buy. I want a bike that has a lot of torque without sacrificing that two stroke snappyness, and something that is streetable for short trips to school or nearby trails. I've been looking at a ktm 300xcw, and I would like some input on if that is the right choice for me. Thanks to anyone who responds! P.s. I mainly ride my own woods. Around 200 acres of trails ranging from open and straight to steep, narrow and windy.
  20. so i have been riding my cr 125 lately and have decided to finally get a new bike. I am going to get a ktm 250xc. My girlfriend and i only ride trails and she is on a crf150r. So last time we went out i had her ride my cr125. she loved it because of it being a full sized bike. and she now likes 2 strokes and would like to get a ktm 150xcw or a250 xcw. She is 5'5 so it is really hard for her to ride one unless we lower it. So i was hoping to get youre guys input on what bike she should go with. ARe the bikes easy to lower ? She is not the fastest rider so Would the 250 be better for more low end and lugging around ?

    Ktm 150 xc

    Hey guys i have a 2013 ktm 150 xc and i want to know how much horsepower it makes
  22. Hey guys, I just bought a new 2018 300 XC-W coming from a 03 Honda CR250r and I absolutely love the bike. It is night and day different than my old woods weapon but holy shit is the seat hard. I have put a EE skid plate and pipe guard on this bike but I'm looking for recommendations for a different seat. What is everyone else running or have done to your seats to get them do it doesn't feel like you are being raped by your bike? Thank you
  23. hi, im weighing up between a ktm 450 sxf and a ktm 250 sx, im a veteran rider been riding for 20 + years and was wondering what bike would have more low to mid power? Archie

    2003 KTM 200 EXC Clutch Issues

    Hi everyone, I purchased a 2003 200 EXC a little while ago. The guy I bought it from said it has a rekluse clutch in it, but that is all I know about it. When I got it pulling in the clutch seemed to have no effect on the bike so I opened up the maser cylinder to find it nearly empty. Filled it from the bottom up and bled it with magura blood. Now when i'm driving in gear it functions normally but any time the bike is off or in neutral it is very hard to pull. The biggest problem is when I come to a stop even with the clutch in the bike stalls. It idles fine in neutral and can be put into first gear and idles fine but the problems happen when coming to a stop. I do not know where to go from here. Any help is appreciated, Thanks. Also considering just going back to a standard clutch, seems like it would be easier to trouble shoot and more reliable for the future?
  25. I bought a used 2009 XC-W a few months ago. Things got a little fun and laid the bike down which damaged the mapping switch (PN K&S 12-0102). Ordered a Siccass replacement... and it doesn't match the carb jetting. Runs like crap. Looked up the K&S part and it's listed as a Kill Switch and not a map switch.
