Freeride 350 in Canada

Just saw this on Kijiji for sale in Calgary AB. Seller claims there are only 2 in Canada with his being the first. He wants $12,000 CAN for it with 700km on the bike. Apparently it has a rekluse clutch and some hand guards. Owner claims it cost $11,000 CAN + shipping. If that's true I suspect it is basically the same price as an 350EXC.

I'm pretty sure I saw it driving on the road near my house a couple months ago...

Freeride Mainteance



Hello,

I'm new on this forum and I (and 3 friends) own a KTM 350 Freeride since 2012.

After running in (5 hours/200 km) I did the first service:
- changing oil + filter
- checking valve clearance. Inlet 0,10/0,11, exhaust 0,17/0,16 mm.
No need to adjust.
- new air filter from http://www.dt1-europe.com/dt1/airfil...ilterskin.html
- mapping changed by KTM dealer due to the new air filter type
- exhaust remains stock, we don't want disturb the farmers and animals in
the mountains.
- handlebar raisers (I am 1,85 m)
- from 12 to 11 teeth sprocket to ride better on technical single tracks.
- on the road I do 75/80 Km/H (GPS) without "killing" the engine.


At the moment the bike has 80 hours/2900 Km with the following maintenance:

- 4 times oil change (brings service average on 16 hours/ 580 km)
- 1 time oil filter change
- checking valve clearance witch remains on the same value as new
- shortened the chain
- changed tyres : Michelin Trial Competition 0,7 bar rear, 0,9 bar front.
Next time I'll take the Pirelli MT43: they are cheap and do more Km.
- replaced the thermo switch from the cooling fan. This switch (ACF) is
not waterproof and the inside was full of corrosion.
I took the switch of a BMW G450X (also ACF)witch is more waterproof.
- I took apart the steering head to grease the bearings properly.
In the KTM factory they are allergic to grease I think.

Conclusion till now:

We did 2 major rides with 4 bikes in the Spanish Pyrenees for 1 week in September.
This means in 1 week +/- 750 Km, 90% tracks and single tracks and 10% road (taking fuel) with backpack. For us these are the perfect bikes to do this (only 2 flat tyres for 6000 off-road motorcycle Km's). We take 1 liter fuel bottle on the front fender, wich gives us a range from 100/110 km.
The Freerides are light, low and with a lot of torque to climb every hill!
The are also very silent an do not disturb other people.

Before we did this rides with 2 Yamaha's WR 250 R, a Yamaha 250 Tricker and an Honda-Montesa 4RT. This bikes are all very reliable but the Yam's have not enough bottom power for climbing and the Honda has no comfort to do 100 Km/day.

That's geared low! 47-50 mph without "killing" the engine. For the new 2014 Model, looks like the Freeride 350 got a much needed taller 6th gear.

http://www.ktm.com/us/freeride/freer...l#.UsRWPWd3uJB

"Freedom has a name: With the FREERIDE 350, the rider alone decides where to ride. In its first year on the market, it got a lot of people very excited who always fancied doing a little off-road riding without any pressure. For the upcoming model year, KTM places a clear development focus on even more practicality and versatility for the FREERIDE 350. For example, a taller sixth gear and final gearing lower the revs and fuel consumption on back roads stages, while the shortened five lower gears still ensure optimum off-road traction. Numerous optimised details serve to make the new FREERIDE 350 even more durable and reliable or contributeto reducing its astonishingly low weight still further."

I don't know the gear ratio but they definitely spaces the 6th higher on both models 2014. My 250R cruise 90 km/h very easy...

Is there a mistake in the "from 2014" in the 2nd and 3rd gear ratios? They are too close and the trend is in the wrong direction. A type-o for 3rd gear perhaps?

Thanks for that guys! So it looks like 1-5th is actually closer on the '14's but then with a bigger jump to 6th giving an overall spread of 6% more on the '14?.


Or another way of putting that - geared so that they both did the same rpm's @ 10mph in 1st gear, when the '13 was doing 59mph in 6th gear the '14 would be doing 64 mph at the exact same rpm if I did my math right!


That's helpful! It might sound kind of small but here on the freeways in Malaysia if you were doing 59 mph 80% of the traffic would be passing you but at 64 mph only 30% would be passing you.
