  1. ok so i bought the bike used and when i got the title from the previous owner it said ORV which stands for Off Road Vehicle and the miles says excempt. I have seen a dozen of these with plates in pa. i have contacted the dealership and they said if person buying it wants it to be off road vehicle then thats how they title it? soooo does that mean i can't put a tag on it??? how do i get the title changed because i know these bike are able to be on the street. 2015 300 xcw six days edition. btw im in york pa and bike was purchsed at cernics in johnstown pa
  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.
  3. Is there ANYONE out there on this forum who can give a good honest and experienced review of how well the Slavens Stink Bug Killer works on XC-W models? Stink Bug Killer: Slavens Racing I'm 6'2" 190lbs geared up and have no need for a lower seat height, however it's advertised to make the bike much more stable at speeds. Sounds pretty general... Will a stock bike with SBK handle whoops? I'd rather spend $40 than $900 getting suspension reworked (probably still will). I wanna know how much different the bike handles with a SBK installed. Thanks, all
  4. hi is was lokking for a ktm 250 xcw for my son and i couldnt find any horsepower related articles and i was wondering if anyone new???
  5. 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!
  6. Good day I have been having a problem with my spark plugs. Every 0.5-1 hour of riding the bike will begin to miss fire due to the spark plug insulator being cracked just below the electrode. (exactly the same everytime) The plug has some oil on it as, expected, but nothing close to causing oil fouling. 2018 ktm 250 xcw (carb) nothing has changed with the bike, the problem suddenly started at random. I have been through roughly 8 plugs (ngk br7es) and it continues, bike runs perfectly with a new plug until the it breaks once again. All jetting seems good and as I said this problem started suddenly and randomly as the bike had been running without a single problem since I have had it. a new piston and rings were installed at 60 hours and the problem still continues exactly the same. Thanks in advanced 50:1 oil ratio (moterx) as I have always 55 hours on 1 plug and then 8 within less than 10 hours??? this isnt my spark plug but the damage to the white insulator is similar
  7. 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
  8. 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?
  9. 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 ?
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. Hey guys i have a 2013 ktm 150 xc and i want to know how much horsepower it makes

  15. 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??
  16. 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.
  17. Okay so I just bought an 09 125sx for trail riding and want to add a larger tank. Unfortunately an over sized tank is anywhere from 230 - 300$. So I thought about buying a used one off ebay, does anyone know if 200/250/300 exc fuel tanks are compatible from the same year or what other years are compatible with it?
  18. 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?

  21. 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
  22. My Old/New 2008 KTM XCW 250. I knew I wanted a KTM.Knew one day I would have one,just didnt know which one.So I decided to let fate decide.So I placed a KTM sticker on the window of my truck and just knew one day I would come across what I was suppose to have,no matter the condition.I have my own A.C. business, and had a call to a Memphis radio personalities home one day.She sees the KTM sticker,says hey,my brother rides that kind and is selling one,my spidey sense kicks in,I say oh yeah?She says yepp,Ill call him to see if he has it,I know its on craigslist.I went to craigslist and there she was,in all her beaten down glory,good god all mighty,she was whooped on.I get it for $1200,knowing the suspension is shot,the E start,will not start,but she fires every time from the hip.I knew nothing about these xcw bikes,so I took her on home. I rode it for a few hours to feel her character then knew exactly what I would do.See,she was down on power and didnt like to get up and go,me weighing 220 didnt help out im sure.I had a challenge ahead of me.Here is what I did......I took it down to a pile of nothing and restored it Powdered the frame PPG white,The swing arm black,sub frame black.All parts are new,Factory KTM bearing in all areas,KTM wire harness,Rekluse Z Start Pro,Wiseco billet clutch basket,Lectron HV Carb,S3 Slavens High Compression head,SX CDI box,2011 model Translucent tank,Plastics including new airbox and 2017 front fender and plate,Moto Seat,Front Suspension by Zip Ty Racing with Gold anodizing of forks by Ty,Rear Nitro bladder and builld by KTM world,Chain and sprockets,wheels and tires,tubes,rear tail light,FMF fatty,power core,VForce 4 reeds.Lithium 130cca battery,all new updated 2016 xcw E start components,7602 racing clutch cover,ims pegs.All gaskets by Cometic.New starter and kill switch,new speedo lens.All nits and bolts are new factory ktm,even engine mount bolts.I know im leaving something out....I rebuilt this bike to how I envisioned it to perform with all the components combined,working together to enhance one another and it does perform. You can see black and orange,the day I got it home.Then the new,white frame and black powdered coated swing arm and sub frame.Then various money shots,but not all of the parts to the go fast puzzle.Finally the finished product.The condition of the bike is,the only things not being brand new would be the triple clamps,bottom end,rotors and radiators.Everything else is new.KTM world rebuilt the entire engine 75 hours ago per the receipts I have,which total over 2K.The bike runs so perfectly,it is just what I had in mind. Thanks for looking! Nate Davis
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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:
