Hello I’m new here but not to dirt bikes. I’ve had many but this is just my second KTM and only my second 2 stroke. Any immediate upgrades you all would suggest besides what I just ordered?

On order:

KTM aluminum skid plate
Pro Moto Billet Fastway rear disc guard
Cycra pro bend hand guards
Slavens Mule H series Lectron 38mm carb


Bike is stock and has .1 Hours on it. I live in Phoenix where it’s 110 degrees and ride not only here in the summer but at elevation in Flagstaff as well 7-9000 feet.

I’m 6’2” and weigh 240lbs without gear so I know I’ll need a different rear shock spring and may need new suspension valving as well. All help appreciated.

So this weekend I installed the Cycra pro bend hand guards, FMF Turbinecore 2.1 silencer, Slavens S3 high compression head with AA insert, Slavens Lectron Mule H 38mm carburetor, Vforce4 reed cage, KTM Skid Plate and orange 5.2kg/mm rear shock spring. So far after a 10 minute ride you can already feel how much more power this thing has and the Lectron was set perfect right from the factory. Very impressed. Still waiting on a inch of parts but I’m sure the FMF fatty and SX CDI box from Slavens will add even more power so I’m excited about that.

Planning on maybe getting a ride in this weekend if it isn’t 115 degrees. Also, doing some videos on the bike if you guys check out my channel at FROGMAN524 on YouTube.

I wonder how that brand new one will compare to my 98 300 EXC. I believe it to be rated at 51 HP. Do you know how many ponies you're running?

Put a new chain and new sprockets as well as new rear axle blocks and Works Connection rear brake reservoir cap on it today.
