I have a slightly used front sprocket if anyone is in need. Should fit most KTM's.

Welcome to the Madhouse!

Lots going on here. I would suggest - as we do to all n00bs - that you read post #2 (yep way back at the beginning) for info on the rides and where we start from.

We have various rides depending on skill level and bike. Last weekend we had a big street bike ride. This week looks like we have a Fastburn ride developing. Depending on your skill level in the dirt you may not be comfortable with this ride. Then again we have had many join the fastburns and be fine.

So far we are leaving from Karick Lake in Blackwater 8 miles north of Baker FL on 189 (NORTH Enterence). One easy ride Saturday afternoon and the real ride is Sunday morning leaving at 9AM

Glad you joined the forum and look forward to meeting and riding with you.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or concerns...

What only two out of 14 missing. KLR riders would stretch that out at least 5 more teeth.


If I remember you are running a Ironman rear.... you will go throught several of these before the Ironman shows wear. It make you tend to forget the front...

Laugh Zuki's concept DL1000

David L. shared this report from Motorcycle News:

http://www.mcnews.com.au/2013_Bikes/...1000/Intro.htm

They do this to the 650 and I'll be ready for a upgrade.

I've tried some specific forums, but I keep gettin generic advice... thought maybe some locals might could shed some light...

Some of you 2t old timers, could you lend a young ignorant mind a figurative hand? I am wondering if this thing needs a rebuild:



it idles ok, runs at wfo ok, rough midrange, smokes all the time. ran it hard an fast for about 10 minutes and the pipe was smokin for minutes afterwards... new packing? strange midrange issue?

I ran 44:1 per previous owner, then tried 50:1 with no difference. tried cheap oil, then went and spent $ on oil. no difference. already pulled carb numerous times, checking float bowl clearance, cleaned all jets and passages with carb cleaner, tiny wire brushes, more carb cleaner, compressed air. When bought, the bike ran like glass. then I started effin with it with the mindset of preventative maintenance, and ended up killin it.

Jerry, could it be burning transmission oil because of a gasket/seal issue?

Happened to me one time on a two stroke when I lost a crankcase oil seal on the clutch side.

Spark plug will get dirty pretty quick.

Pull the muffler and fire it up to see if the smoking stops. If it does, the packing has been saturated with 2t oil and repack will fix that.
Good luck!

I had a 300. Does the 200 have a power valve? If it does, then take it apart & clean it. If your not fouling the plug, then it probably needs new rings. If the 200 only has one piston ring, then it's only about $40. My 300 had 2 rings & it was only a bit more $$$ to just buy a piston kit.
