Pretty see the vented air box covers aren’t an option in the UK. Thank you for the response. The stock pegs are pretty good to be fair so think I’ll stick with them for now.

I have not yet ridden the bike since doing these modifications, but doubt it would make a noticeable difference in power. I will drill holes in the air box cover on the new plastics I have when I change them over, and maybe remove the lip from the underside ... more »

What do you mean by that? I have not been on the bike since doing this, but there will be no problems in removing the plastic because it has no use. Guessing KTM just wanted to make production as easy as possible so all of the 2 strokes, inc enduro models ... more »

Stock reed cage pictured below, the petals were seated properly, no damage at all just a large gap between cage and petals. Will order a vforce or rad valve soon to replace.

Decided to clean up the airbox area by removing some excess material. ... more »

Strong oven cleaner will work as long as it contains Sodium Hydroxide (caustic soda). Mix about half and half with hot water and leave to sit until all anodising is removed (should take about 15 minutes max). Use scotchbrite then to clean up and polish

VHM head, Doma exhaust and some port work. That’s what I did to my 16 when I had it and was an awesome bike. When fresh, it would rival 250f’s, but after sort of 30/40 hours I found they start to lose a lot of power if they’ve been rode hard.

Got some cheap aftermarket CRF axle blocks off eBay as, with the stock ones, the adjuster bolts are wound really far out because they’re just ‘square’ blocks. Obviously I didn’t want to run them red, so decided to strip anodising off until I decide if

Started new thread Braking developing mx brakes 5/23/2019 10:30 AM

Just came across this on Instagram - Braking testing with Coldenhoff. Looks like a billet master cylinder, and sort of a mountain bike style to it. Also saw a factory YZ125 in the Europeans which had the same brake kit on it.

The domino throttle setup is so much better. I didn’t think there was much wrong with stock until I had a few laps on a friends yzf250, which had ultralight throttle pull. I was quite lucky I happened to have mine in garage as I’d purchased the Keihin ... more »

Thank you for the tip off on the CRF spring. In videos I can see now that RM ATV team uses them, and numerous others including Diga Procross Husqvarna in GP’s. That was another question I was going to ask for help on - which reed cage is better; Vforce ... more »

Yes the CRF axle has separate axle blocks so it’s ‘floating’ unlike to stock KTM one, which is supposed to give more traction. As said above, there are numerous conversion kits for the KTM axle, but at like £60-£100 in the UK, it’s just way cheaper to

Cheers Jeffro, appreciate it as you’re builds are always amazing. I think they were all caged bar the smallest one on the knuckle pictured below as the needles all fell out when I started cleaning it out. I can imagine it would be a horrible job if they

Kind of understand where he’s coming from but as said above, if everyone rode ‘old’ bikes, no new bikes would be sold so there would be no mx industry. I just wanted to show some of the mods I’ve done to improve the bike, and help others with the same

Nice clean build mate. Loving the gold stanchions to match the rims too! How are you finding the Keihin carb? I’m running mikuni on pretty much stock jetting at 60:1 and it runs good. I purchased a used PWK but haven’t really got any reason to try it ... more »
