Not to dis the tuning aspects, but are you and your buddy running the same gearing? The cheapest way I know to up the mileage is downsize the rear sprocket. Sid

Where do you locate the info on all these single lane passes tucked up behind houses or some turn-off in a gravel parking lot? I've done a number of the classic passes in the eastern...

Well, I've tried the Edelbrock Quicksilver from lean to rich and the bike refuses to run properly. Lets change carbs. Since an FCR41 is pricey, give me some feedback on the discernable (seat of the...

Carb Surgery

Hi all,

I pulled the carb today and I must say that's as easy a job as can be on a KTM 620. I hunted down info on the net about the Quicksilver carb and printed what I could. It seems a simple...

I knew this would happen.

Thanks for the replies guys. I pretty much figured I would be changing out the carb. On the BST for the 620, are the settings similar to those given elswhere on this forum for the 640? Also, if...

Why the start time?

Speaking of best day ever!

I would have to say that the BRP is a national treasure preserved for motorcyclists. They can't spend enough of my tax money maintaining that thing. Too bad you had fog on the lower section because...

My two cents on carb issues.

I've got an older 620 so the carb will be less restricted but they still function the same. The cause of the "cold stumbles" and off idle dead spots is the factory setting the carbs lean to pass...
