It's always gone over whatever rider capacity we set.

Last year we had a 175 rider limit but blew right over that and ended up with well over 200 ('cause I'm just easy, I guess).

We managed, but this year we'll be a bit more hard-assed about cutting registration off so it doesn't get out of hand.

It's a 620 - though it's actually displacement is 609cc.

I've never had anything like it. It took a bit to get used to the kick start and the lack of counter balancing, but it is an absolute blast to ride. Pure, unrefined power. Pretty amazing capability for a 1994.

Well, I managed to sound test the KTM tonight. I got 96 dB.... at idle. She's putting out about 105dB at 4K RPMs :(


But, she's got a supertrapp spark arrestor. It started with 18 plates. I took her down to 10 plates and that brought the sound down to 100 dB at 4K rpm.

According to what I've just read, I need to start at 6-8 plates to properly adjust the pipe. I don't know what the PO was doing with 18 plates.

The other thing I need to look into is the fiberglass packing. I'd be surprised if there were any left as loud as it is. So, I'll crack the pipe open and check that first. Then, if it's still too loud, I'll drop some more plates in the supertrapp.

She's close, but I've still got a little work to do to get her legal for the ride.

We've seen a lot of very loud Supertrapps. Probably the most common "fail" pipe.

Well, the plot thickens. It's actually an FMF pipe. But, it has a supertrapp spark arrestor riveted on the end. It doesn't appear that it was ever designed to have fiberglass packing. So, I hope I can quiet it down enough by removing plates. I'll experiment a bit more tonight. I may have to go with leaner jetting if I restrict the exhuast much more. I'm glad I'm not finding this out after paying registration and riding my bike 4 hours to the event!

Which FMF is it? Most FMFs I've seen, or have had apart still used some type of fiberglass wrap. Which breaks down rather quickly for those of you that have them. Maybe yours was so badly gone that it burnt up, or the previous owner decide to go without a repack since its kind of a pain in the arse to repack all the time.
