Rebuilding 89 KTM 350. Need parts

I love this bike! It's in pretty rough shaped tho, I need to find parts websites to restore it to its former glory. I got the bike running now rebuilt the carb picking up parts today to rebuild the front forks. I need everything else exhaust, radiator hoses top end kit, all that good stuff. If you guys could help me I would really appreciate it. If I knew how to post pics I would.

ktmtalk is the place to go. I've got a full 1999 WP 50mm fork from the bar clamp/Applied top clamp, stock lower, legs, axel to the wheel and brake, needs seals but near perfect if you want to upgrade. I'm in NJ. Cheap too, off a 20 hour 125SX. Great condition and might be the best forks they built till about 2009.

i might have some stuff. no motor parts. i have 2 very early 4 strokes (87 - 88 i think) parts bikes here - would have to look. i think the forks/shock/wheels/some bodywork may crossover... pm me a list of parts you need, and i can figure out what these things are exactly, and send ya some pics of whatever parts might work for you.

I sold them today but no matter, you can use pretty much any newer KTM front end, the only "big" mod is adding steering stop tabs or a threaded boss for them to the frame. The set I sold is going on a Maico.

gee given how overwhelming popular 350 KTM's were in 1989 it is indeed shocking that there isn't more interest and support in them on advrider 23 years later.

The main problem are spare parts in general as KTM went in bankrupty in the beginning 90's when I remember right.
So any parts and expecially plastic's, engine case (the magnesium case on the clutch and waterpump side corrode very quick),
clutch parts, even piston's are a problem.

The "oldie but goldie" section of KTMTalk is really a good ressource.

Anyway good luck to your rebuild, these bikes still running and complete
will be rare bird's in a couple of years I believe.
