So I brought this bike with no spark.... having had a few early 2000 ktms in the past I knew the position of the Cdi between the yolkes and the frame...was a dangerous place to be after a crash...especially when the lock stop had fell out.

So yes looking at this one and checking all the basic other outcomes....

I decided to buy a New Cdi.... so I Contacted Hpi in Belgium they were golden 3 days and it landed on my door step.....

Complete Oem replacement plug in and play...and yes we have a spark.....

Pre-start up problem number 2 was a funny one.... the tank was bone dry when it got to me... so as you do I popped the fuel cap off and had a good look inside it...and it was mint so I thought good to go let's get some fuel in here and fire it up....

Photo

Lol so I turned the fuel tap to ON...nothing
So I tried RESERVE....nothing.... on closer inspection after taking the fuel tap off it just disintegrated....like an Egyptian mummy's handbag... so that was fun had to rig a dummie tank up for the fire up while I awaiting a after market replacement....

Another problem I encountered.. was no clutch..... so I just assumed the seal had blown in the slave cylinder or something similar.... it wasn't till I checked out the lever I found I had a crack in the casting bigger than a smack-eds Friday night fix....

Photo

Not sure why there was no clutch but I popped the mastercylinder cap off and it was dry.... so I managed to locate a complete master cylinder ... and replaced that back bled the system and...Viola! We had clutch.....

That bike is in amazing condition and it’s rare we see ktm builds of these earlier 2000ish KTMs so I’m pumped on this one.

Thanks bud .... my first race bike was an 2001 ktm 125 so this build is a homage to that one lol... with a bit more poke... but yes I cannot work out how a bike is that old but I'm almost sure it's hasn't even done like a few hours from new... it's a great find...👍
