I ran mine 60:1 with motorex as the manual recommends, jetting stock but switched to 450 main jet. Ran pretty darn good. I'm in Michigan so fairly low elevation. But I'm done with the bike for a while as I broke my femur last weekend when I ... more »

Ktm wanting to regulate emissions a bit makes complete sense, thanks for the link definitely going to read through.

Thanks for the input, strictly a motocross bike for me that's why I was worried about the 60:1. Also understand that less oil is more rich on the jetting side. My whole thing is that I want to run the bike as KTM engineered it to operate and not be chasing ... more »

Thanks for the heads up! Spokes are something I usually pay pretty good attention to but I have heard these bikes loosen up quick. Hoping to have break in finished tomorrow or Saturday and have it to the track Sunday

Yea I know how to handle carb setup, just the first time I saw a factory recommendation of 60:1. Gotta get back in the habit though efi has had me spoiled for a while.

Picked up my 17 today and as many people do picked up the owners manual and read it front to back. What really made the gears in my head start turning is ktm suggesting 60:1 premix ratio. I am one to follow oem recommendations 100% but even with how

Can't remember what my worst crash was, but worst one this year I do. 2nd gear wide grabbing 3rd out of a womped out sweeper, front end deflected on something and sent me superman style off the bike. Landed about 15-20 feet forward of the bike square

I just sold my 09 crf450, I couldn't stand that bike. I preferred my clapped out 02 cr250 to that bike hands down. Clutch had to be replaced, handled poorly even after a lot of money put into the suspension. I've ridden a 13 rmz with factory connection ... more »

Added reply in a thread Whats the most dangerous track in your state 8/10/2016 10:22 PM

Baja has come a long way, since the Loretta qualifier all jumps have been table topped except the uphill triple and ski, and the jump that used to be the 140 has been shortened to about 50 with lots of room for error. I'm curious to see what Pat has ... more »

My 17 250sx won't be at the dealer until November, so jealous to see you guys putting down laps on them already!

I'd check for bubbles coming in the radiator with the cap off idling just to be safe, had a bad base gasket on my crf450 and it did what your bike is doing

Plastic design looks like something xxr would build to me, just not very appealing. Personal preferences I suppose. Curious to hear how it rides

I've been on Hondas for 10 years, so I am a Honda supporter...but am I the only one on here that thinks this bike looks like a cheap China toy? I'm not impressed and really glad I'm switching to KTM
