Re: New spark plug fitting on KTM 350 xcfw

The trick is to put a little lube on the rubber piece that is inside the plug tool. Without lube it can be difficult to get the rubber holder over the spark plug top, this is likely why the plug did not come out with the tool.

Re: Ever ride a serious bike with out a shifter

He sure did and the issues were the springs broke. New springs are being remade. They have a better plate to upgrade with now that covers them and a tab to lock the primary drive nut.It keeps springs in place so they cant jam up a gear if it breaks. Easy to pull apart, no case splitting for gears, ...

Re: Ever ride a serious bike with out a shifter

Damn that is cool Turbo, I remember those back in the day, killer find. :thumbsup:
There was some reliability or maintenance issue with those Auto's, but can't recall what it was.
I think it was Terry Cunningham that won on that bike - alot.

Re: Fuel-Injected KTM Two-Strokes Coming in '18

The 250 TPI likely will not be here until the Fall.
There will not be a 300 TPI in NA this year.
I believe the oil line enters at the top of the reed cage area.

Re: Parking at Fisher East (5K)

Heads if you are parking on the east side of the road at Fisher West staging area. If they are ticketing the 5K this is another area they would likely hit.

Re: Parking at Fisher East (5K)

I have been parking there for almost 40 years and never had an issue. Heck when the 6 CO's blitzed the club night, 95% of us were parked on the west side of the road and they did not have an issue with where we parked. Unfortunately under the NDP Gestapo reign we are going to be seeing alot more of ...

Re: Safe, Secure on Trail, in Camp

I use a In Reach device from Delorme satellite communicator. Has proven to be very handy but costs even when not in use. I have enough tools to fix a broken chain, flat tires, spare levers, spare shifter, miscellaneous nuts and bolts, tie straps, duct tape, grip wire, electrical tape, wrenches, All...

Re: Best Woods Bike for Shorter Women

One issue with the 2017 Hardparts Low seat is the foam was not designed correctly. Instead of removing most of the foam from the bottom at the seat base, they just shaved the top. It is 15mm lower, but short leg riders will only notice that from the seat to the pegs, from the seat to the ground it i...

This helps with gas mileage. Make sure the top of the loop is not to high.

Re: Best Woods Bike for Shorter Women

At 5' 6" your wife should not need it much lower on the XCW 150. My son is just out of mini bikes and is only 5' 4" riding off-road on a SX 150, re sprung for his weight and 107mm sag with no lower and he can touch really well. The linkage SX does sit lower than XCW but than can be fixed w...

Re: Looking for 2017 300 Jetting Advice

I agree with Dirtyboy in that these JD kits are close but still need some tweaking. Have one in a 2017 SX 150. You did not mention your Air screw setting. I would start with turning your AS to 3 or 3 1/2 out [ for MTN riding], if this helps put in a 27.5 pilot. Also try the 2.5 needle position. Befo...

Re: Lone Ranger/outlaw trail

I do not own a GPS but a wild guess is LR = 3 1/2 km, Outlaw = 2 1/2 km.
