Which 2018 bike?

Postby Xcfjohn » Sun Oct 08, 2017 6:15 pm

If you were going to buy a 2018 KTM Which one would it be? I've rode a four stroke for years I was thinking of the new six days 250f. But the 250 and 300 injected two stroke bikes look awesome.

I took delivery of a 250 XC and have been out for a couple of rides. I really like it a lot! Super light and flickable. I was a little worried about getting the jetting (No FI on XC and the FI XC-W is still quite rare) right, but with Dobi's help it, seems to be well sorted. I still owe more Dilly Bars!!! :cheers:

So on these new two strokes how often do you need the piston changed?

I rode with a guy this weekend that has over 200hrs on his 17 300 without any issue. No piston rattle and still starts great.
