    Steering Stabilizer Needed!

    I've got a scotts and a fastway, both should fit. Still interested?

    Help needed! 2005 ktm 250 smoker

    2005 ktm 250 exc two stroke with no spark. The mechanic said it needs a cdi but they’re not available new so he sent me home and told me to go on eBay. So far, 2 separate cdis from eBay don’t work. I’m wondering if it’s a connector issue or something else. Does someone have a running 2005 ktm 250 that I can swap a cdi into to test mine? furthermore, I know some of you are better mechanics than I am. Anyone have time to help trouble shoot? I’ll pay fair market rates, plus beer if wanted

    free front tires

    current front tire for reference. Ignore my buddy’s 350 in the back ground, I ain’t got cash for that type of bike

    Still got these?? I need one.
  5. I’m in with a tw200! When we thinking?
  6. Great info, thank you both!
  7. The ruttier, the better
  8. I’m coming from north county SD, so I might just do that. Ideally I’d like to stay off the highway as much as possible once I’m up there. Looks like dirt trails are possible from glider port
  9. Anyone want to explore Thomas mountain this weekend? I've got a tw200 I'd like to truck out there, put around for a day. All skill levels welcome. This won't be ripping around on a full suspension enduro, much more mellow than that. Additionally, has anyone ridden around out there? Can you provide some feedback on the riding? I saw a couple posts on here from a few years back, but I don't know what we're looking at now. Thanks, SC

    Kinda equilibrium

    Before and after 45 more miles of very rocky and sandy trails and 45 more miles of high way at 50-75. Tire is wearing about the same and as other dirt tire I’ve tried including the golden enduro, motoz enduro, and ac10. Still really happy with it

    Thanks for the help. It’s jetted and the carb is good enough. Definitely a lean spot about 1/4-1/3 throttle but that is not noticeable when warmed up. Forks were rebuilt initially, then swapped for some 4cs forks that had been gone through and work better than the stockers ever did. I was skeptical too, but this one never bent and I’m not easy on it. Lots of big rocky sections. Oil isn’t migrating that I’ve noticed, mostly blowing out the engine breather tube (mine is vented to the atmosphere and I see a wet spot after long high reving). I also have been seeing some engine oil behind the air filter lately. Anyone know what these two symptoms mean? Piston blow by? Valve stem seals? Valves leaking? Normal when slightly overfilled oil?

    Also, the bike has turned into a 2-stroke. It likes to snack on rotella. Probably needs a top end. Maybe bottom too at this point. But it still starts and runs fine. I’ll update y’all when I get around to a rebuild.

    Been burning through air filters, oil and and tires this whole time. Bike has been great. Been on the same chain and sprockets, they got a swap today. front sprocket is pretty bad. Rear is pretty good. Chain is missing a bunch of o-rings and the ones that remain are ALL dried and cracked. I don’t maintain this like I should went from 14-50 to 14-52. bike feels quicker to rev and much more playful. 6th gear is still plenty tall. Should’ve made the swap a while ago.
