Can i restrict a ktm 525 to 33 bhp


yes. like any bike your local dealer can restrict it for you.
i would question why you would want to restrict the 525 when it would be easier to get a 250 and restrict that instead. the difference would be much less noticeable and you wouldn't feel like you were riding a castrated bike. i'd wait for your licence upgrade to get a 525. or just do your accelerated access in the mean time and get the 525 in it's natural form. if you can afford a 525 you can afford accelerated access.

Ktm 525 missfires after it gets warm


First take a look at the plug color. Should be tan to a light chocolate. White is too lean. And don't overlook the valves. Adjust as needed.

Overheating


  • First I would go get stock plugs from the dealer. Plugs with incorrect heat range can cause overheating.
  • Drain the oil and replace the oil filter. Refill the crankcase with fresh oil. Also be sure exhaust gasses are getting through the exhaust pipes okay
  • Check the spark timing. and clean or replace the air filter.
Your mechanic probably installed carb rebuild kits in each carb. This is good but the correct main jets may not have come in the generic kits he bought. Too small a main jet can cause overheating. Pull the float bowl of whichever carb is easiest to get to. Remove the main jet and look to see what size it is. There will be a number i.e. 3.0 stamped on the jet. Call your dealers parts department and ask what size main jet is stock. The smaller the number, the smaller the jet. Re-jet the carbs if needed.

I hope you can rate this solution as a "FixYa". Thanks!
