Question about 2003 KTM EXC 250

1 Answer

Start I took a friend of mine trail riding yesterday and he used my 250f we got about halfway through the trail and all of a sudden he said the bike shut off and that was it. It hasn't started again i assumed it was the pplug at first so i went to the truck and got a plug but still nothing. So i assumed it was the carb so i took it off and before i cleaned it i twisted the throttle while it was off and there was a good stream of gas but i cleaned it anyway. Cleaned my filter still no start. Checked my timing and it's all aligned right. Valve clearances are perfect. Still no start my compression tester was for my 125 and it doesn't fit in my plug hole so i didn't check that

    The bike was running fine, after taking a break from riding I started it back up and reved it 3-4 times then it stopped running. I changed the plug right away but nothing. Then I cleaned my fuel filter, the bike is firing it just wont start. Any solutions or where to look next would be greatly appreciated.

. but i don't get a pop or nothing just kicking and kicking and nothing happens any help would be appreciated. Plug has fire also but maybe some other electronics are messed up so if anyone knows how to troubleshoot electronics on this bike that would help alot.This might sound weird but did anything happen to the killswitch wire? If it got pulled on or something it could have come loose, causing it to act like it's being held down and not restart. I had this problem on my 125...put a new one in, and haven't had a problem since.,,,

Is there any Car Insurers who let you use your no claims from a bike towards your car quote?


Basically the answer is no, But, a friend of mine did this a couple of years ago, he had about six years on his bike insurance and when he came to get a car, he told them about the bike insurance and they took it into consideration and gave him a discount. Possibly: You'll need to check with individual insurers. I would suggest getting quotes without any NCB and then phoning the company of your choice & asking if there would be any discount for your year's claim free riding.

Hi Anonymous, call, take a ride or trailer your bike over to your local dealers service/parts department, I'm sure they will be happy to take your Harley Davidson for a test ride if necessary/possible and offer professional advice and assistance concerning your issue. Good luck have a nice day.

I have just bought a Yamaha warrior 2003 model and went for a ride yesterday with my neighboor who has the same bike. We swapped bikes for a while and the ride on his bike was so much softer. We looked at...


There are two spring tensions used. 127 or 137N/mm.
Be carefull adjusting the unit because over-adjustment can release the mechanism and spring with disasterous results.
At one end of the unit are a pair of half nuts. One of which, the outermost, is the lock nut.
With two spanners, release the lock nut. Screwing the adjustment nut in will increase the tension.
I have a Buel M2 and a friend of mine adjusted the tension too low. He went over a trough in the road at speed leaving the rear numberplate and lights behind!

I hope that helps and ride safe!

My 2004 rmz 250 overheating


trail riding d'idnt provided enough air to make you're bike running cooler..and get you're head to warp a little and let pressure in you're cooling system. at least i would try a new gasket and some coolanol coolant to put in after....they get faster heat transfer..also you can put a higher pressure radiator cap that will keep in you're coolant...
