Re: 2007 KTM 450 SXF Crackling on throttle both Up and Down.

Its still not running just right though. It does not backfire, but when I roll on the throtle it is making a crackling type of noise. Kinda like hundreds of small, mild backfire sounds. That doesn't sound like a jetting issue to me? I would check the cam timing. Stuff that can go wrong on the carb:...

Re: Replacing fork oil, WP inverted forks (ktm)

The spring normally has some pressure on the preload spacer, but there is a washer like cup that it sits on that can go askew. Here is a video on how to set the oil level. It is really easy to get it wrong, because o...

Re: Breezewood Proving Grounds

I just rode there last weekend. I stuck to the Intermediate track. The advanced track is beyond my skill set for now. Bring your swimming trunks, they have a really big man made pool/pond there. It looked pretty awesome.

I would unplug the tail light harness and try again. If it were an electric start, I would look for a fuse inline somewhere? Don't think you have any fuses on that bike?

Re: supermoto practice at BeaveRun Friday, May 11th

I honestly don't see bringing that as a problem on a weekday. Think about it next time.
