Adjust your sag but i saw a pro do it with no more than 4 inches. Be sure your wearing all your gear when checking the sag. For rebound if the back of the bike is coming up and hit your butt when your on the breaks before a corner you have to much rear rebound. One good idea is to have a friend film you while you ride to see what the bike is doing. If it packs down to little rebound if it jumps up and down to much rebound. Compression will adjust how fast the shocks move in. If your at a track your suspension should bottom out on the biggest jump which should be about once a lap. Most bikes are set up to wear you don't really need to move the compression or rebound clickers. First thing have to do as I said before is to adjust your sag.

Does a KTM 450sx(2011) motor fits in the chassis of a KTM 450 Exc -R (2008) .the engine looks the same but does the mounting ???


Hi, Vaesdimitri after careful deliberation 4 out 5 KTM Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm. Good luck and have a nice day. manuals

How do I replace a handle bar on a 2008 GSXR 600 I'm concerned about the front suspension while taking the top plate off


Support bike on paddoc stand, support also under engine to take the weight of the steering, remove your handlebar, do not disturbe any of the bolts on the bottom yoke and providing you have no weight on the steering you will not disturbe the suspension replace in reverse order, do not worry its not a big job, if replacing the r/h handlebar undo the twistgrip unit and slide it onto the new bar before fitting to the bike, this will omit the use for removing the cables.

Im 5'7 at 175lb & will soon own an 08 KTM 530 EXC-R street legal version it sits way to tall for me, what can I do to lower without taking to much away from performance but atleast have two feet on the...


You need to work with a suspension specialist shop to lower your bike. They can take apart the forks and shock and install spacers to limit the travel and make the bike lower. This mod is easily removed in the future if you decide to sell the bike etc.

Try Enduro Engineering or Pro Action There are other local shops that do suspension work... ask around at local shops and the KTM dealer etc.

I just bought a 2008 ktm 105 and i can start it okay but when i pull in my clutch and push down on the shifter for gear 1 the bike shuts off.


Sounds like the clutch is not engaging. Check the clutch cable. Can you roll the bike then put in gear while it is rolling and it go? I would say adjust the clutch. Screw the adjustment out. Or unscrew the adjustment. Which is under a little black rubber boot on the clutch handle.

How do I adjust rear suspension for a carrying a pillion? i can't find the owners' manual


Unless your pillion is going to be heavy you will need to change the rear suspension springs to handle larger mass. I am not sure if there is a ready replacement for this but otherwise you will have to fabricate larger dia tougher ones that could hold up the weight. Hope I could help?

2009 KTM 200 is to peaky


adjusting the power valve may not help, as it is shut at lower rpm and only opens at the higher rpm
Someone like Ballards may sell a flywheel weight which may tame it a bit
