KTM SX65 what maintenance should be done if only using the bike around the garden ie oil changes?


Hi, Jonathan I find your analogy of a motocross bike, designed for tearing up the dirt and a gentle garden puzzling never the less for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your KTM, despair not, for a mere $0 you can download another one.

I got a new 2017 KTM 250 SX it runs very rich and the plug is black and it's not running right depending on where you are.


Hi, Dilwyn and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Air fuel mixture screws not properly adjusted.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Leaking accelerator pump.
5. Loose low-speed jet.
6. Plugged low-speed jet.
7. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
8. Enrichner valve/choke not seated or leaking.
9. Multi carburetors out of sync and need to be balanced.

How do i lower the throttle pin on 2001 ktm 300 exc


if you need you bike jetted for 7000, take it to a shop and have it jetted.
If you dont understand your carburetor and make the wrong adjustment you can lean out and blow up the engine.
when you jet a bike for 7000, you need to change everything, main jet, idle jet, idle mixture, idle, and needle position.

Black plugs


Black Plugs are indicating that your bike is running too rich(too much fuel to air mixture) you need to have the carburator adjusted,more air.Good Luck.
