  1. 2017 350 XCF engine swap with 2019

    Offroad 4 strokes
    Best to study factory parts breakdown of both units and check part numbers of engine cases and mounting brackets. Swapping attempts are a dangerous game to play unless both bikes are compared piece by piece, preferably with both bikes next to each other on stands. Can't tell you if swap would...
  2. God Help Me! Broken Oil Cover Screw

    Supermoto/Enduro
    +1 with @weeksy on your chances of turning a mess into a steamy hot smelly mess. Move forward carefully here as you have shaved the inner bore of the cover register and your o ring bore is very close to the edge there. You will need to remove damaged screw without any further damage to bore. If...
  3. Can the 390 be restricted to the power of a 125cc

    Duke
    Hello and welcome to the forum. I was tempted to rip the $hit out of you but reconsidered because you have a really cool forum handle:p I'm no expert on your motorcycle regulations over there but I would think the regulated criteria for your licensing would be based on displacement(engine size)...

  5. Fork Support Brace

    Two Strokes
    Never used one. Always heard pulling tie downs tight was bad for fork and shock springs. Saw a racer use a plastic purpose made support and bounced a bike from an open trailer. Don't know if it was the fault of the support block or other problem, I just remember his pretty dirt bike all ground...
  6. 2003 KTM SX - Starts & Dies Quickly in Smoke

    Two Strokes
    Yeah. I have drained transmission fluid for testing purposes with no future transmission troubles(that I was aware of) but the trouble with troubleshooting a leaky crank seal is you would have a crankcase full of previously leaked trans fluid inside and you may continue to get some smoke when...
  7. 2003 KTM SX - Starts & Dies Quickly in Smoke

    Two Strokes
    Well at least you were wearing proper footwear Joe :oops: that's a healthy puff of killer smoke yez got there. Have a look at transmission fluid level and see if she's low on fluid, but I kinda suspect a coolant leak into cylinder. Hard for me to see it from here. I'm hoping our forum friends...
  8. 2003 KTM SX - Starts & Dies Quickly in Smoke

    Two Strokes
    Hi Joe. A few of the usual suspects can cause your trouble. Crank seal or coolant leak are contenders. I would start by checking for obvious coolant leak with pressure test of cooling system. If you don't have a method available you can remove radiator cap from COLD radiator and fill to top and...
  9. Help diagnose my hard starting no idle issue.

    JD jetting is a good source for carburetor parts. Sudco and Carburetor parts warehouse are also well stocked with parts. Don't trust your RTV sealant for gasoline service as the fuel will attack and degrade it quickly
  10. I need a 2012 350 xcf-w genius

    Offroad 4 strokes
    Well good on you for your persistance;)glad you didn't have to set your bike on fire as threatened. Your theory of loose cam chain makes sense as it would allow cam timing to retard and allow after pop. The starting issue correction surprises me, only because it's the first I've seen this...
  11. Freeride 350

    New Member Introductions
    Hello and welcome. A few questions to allow a better understanding. It would seem you are concerned with a clutch drag with engine off and clutch disengaged? I would expect most bikes to drag a bit when cold in this condition and perhaps free up somewhat with warm engine. Some clutches will...
  12. Help ktm 125sx2014

    Two Strokes
    If you don’t have enough material in the bore for 6mm capscrews find a 1/4x28 American fine thread tap and rethread your stripped bore. The size is .250 compared to your 8mm(.308) heli coil insert. use socket head capscrews if your cover won’t allow the larger 7/16(11mm) bolt head.
  13. Best Damper Stering for KTM 350 EXC-F year 2019

    Offroad 4 strokes
    WER damper is a great and simple and reasonably priced option. Mounting can be an issue on some models. Ohlins is super expensive but worth the high price. Scott's are excellent choice and super value. Most riders won't notice any difference in performance with these quality brands. The cheap...
  14. Ktm 65 sx clutch issues

    Sportminicycles
    Ah yeah... forgot to mention. Your clutch description was reversed. Pulling clutch lever will disengage clutch. Releasing lever will engage clutch. Your symptom would be correctly described as the clutch remains engaged and refuses to disengage until it frees up. Common problem. Answer and fix...

    Sportminicycles
    Have a look at my clutch tips in tips and tricks thread for simple advice with your trouble before you get in a panic. Could be a simple problem. And don’t forget to change your transmission fluid
  16. Would you ride this trail ? :)

    Duke
    When it becomes more work than fun it's just not worth the trouble. That terrain is hard on machinery, but really tough on humans.

  18. 350 exc f electronic

    Offroad 4 strokes
    Electric troubleshooting is usually painfully expensive trial and error frustration at it's best. Nothing to do but struggle through it until complete. Process of elimination can help early on determining which circuit is affected. You would unplug and disconnect fuses or connectors until you...

    Australia/New Zealand
    Uh. No @AusPete I would expect those Texans would just throw their hat over that small gator pictured until he calmed down and let the children play with him for awhile and then I suppose they might turn him into a stylish pair of boots or a handbag for the Miss. I reckon even the toughest of...
