Ended up being the main bearing on the clutch side. Replaced all the bearings and installed a new crank and now everything seems to be working good again.

2019 KTM 250 XC with 80 hrs. The bike started to make this noise with less than 20hours on a new piston. I installed a new piston, clutch plates, and reeds hoping it would resolve the issue, but it did not. I rode the bike for about 15 minutes since ... more »

Added reply in a thread Marks on new Piston?? 7/21/2021 4:12 AM

93 pump fuel, which I've always ran with this bike with no issue. The knocking noise seems to happen more on the lower idle than the higher side.

The whole piston was gray, which was different than the other Vertex pistons I've used before.

Just put a new piston in my KTM 250, rode it for about 10 minutes, then pulled the exhaust to take a look. Upon inspection I noticed these strange wear marks on the piston. Should I be concerned? The bike runs perfect, but it does seem to make more noise

I ended up replacing the clutch, then bleeding the line. You have to make sure to put the plates in the correct order, and make sure to get all the air out of the line.

Started new thread KTM Valve Clearance Question 4/28/2021 9:25 AM

I just checked the valve clearance on my 2019 KTM 350 SXF. The valves seem to be in spec, but they are near the limit on one end so I'm curious if I should adjust now, or leave them for a while longer. Intake limit is 0.10mm -0.15mm, I measured them ... more »

Thank you for confirming! I went ahead and ordered the OEM so hopefully it'll be here next week.

I just broke my spark plug cap on my 2019 KTM 350 SXF. Do I need to use an OEM part, or can I use a NGK replacement. I tried searching online but couldn’t confirm. Trying to fix for the weekend and the OEM won’t be here until next week, but it looks ... more »

Added reply in a thread WD40 for chain lube 4/22/2021 9:00 AM

I switched last year and it's been working great. I was using motorex and maxima chain lubes before, but I found the WD40 keeps the chain cleaner and seems to stay on longer.

Depends on how many watts you think you'll need, but I had a Champion 3100 watt for a couple years and it worked well, but it was more then I needed so I switched to the Honda 2200 generator last year: https://www.amazon.com/Honda-EU2200iTAG-2200-Watt-Generator-CO-Minder/dp/B08GPKL8N2?dchild=1&keywords=honda+generator&qid=1617373750&sr=8-3&linkCode=ll1&tag=mxtg-20&linkId=381411246fdaba4016a54ebe00d3f82c&language=en_US&ref_=as_li_ss_tl ... more »

Added reply in a thread Switching from TwinWalls to Fatbar 11/30/2020 10:30 AM

I'd try the pro taper fuzion bars. To me they have a lot more flex than the Twinwalls. The fatbar has more flex as well, but I like the look of the crossbar so I've been running these for a couple years now.

We have the electric KTM and just picked up a 21 50 SX for racing. I prefer the electric one for maintenance, and my son is easily faster on it. The only downside is the battery length, but it hasn't been that bad. When we ride at tracks they break up ... more »

On a full moto track, my son is getting about 20-25 minutes in speed 6 on softer tracks. On hardpack tracks he can stretch it 30 minutes. For skill level I would say he is on the more advanced side for the bike. We have a little track in our back woods ... more »
