Vent hose on 99 ktm 200cc

I am having trouble finding the attachment point for the vent hose on my bike. After having the engine worked on it was returned to me without this hose in place. I se a hole in the side cover where this hose passes through but I don't know where it goes from there or what it attaches to. Is there a barbed fitting inside the case? Could I send a photo of the engine with a screwdriver pointing to the location of the hole this hose passes through? I have contacted several dealers and looked at their pictures bur haven't been able to determine what this hose is for and where it attaches inside the cover. I love this bike and the hose is the only thing holding up a new ride after the rebuild!

How to put the whole wiring harness including speedo horn headlight rear light, regulator back on a ktm 300 exc 07

Hi mark first stretch out the harness beside the bike to be sure it's the right one for it. Then look at each connection on the bike and harness try find the mid point ie. the engine electrics and connect them up then work your way forward. Then backwards the harness will have to be inside the frame to avoid damage especially around the seat area. When the harness is in place fit lights and whatever else is there and wire it as you go. If you find a few spare connectors don't worry many harnesses are made to suit other models. Have fun.

2002 ktm 250 dirtbikes oil leak between cylinder and head by exhuast port

Hi, Anonymous to find the source of your oil leak, start at the point where you see oil and trace its path going up and forward, blowing baby powder from the palm of your hand will help in those difficult to see areas if there is too much oil present then buy a spray can of engine degreaser apply it to the affected area then rinse off with a pressure wand or garden hose, use compressed air to blow off excess water or just let it drip dry, take your bike for a 15 minute ride and check for the leak.

Advise them that you are aware that the State Attorney General, Michael Cox, has written KTM twice and gotten no response from KTM., copies enclosed. Without satisfactory resolution to the issues at hand you have been advised to seek legal council and pursue a punitive lawsuit against KTM for breach of contract (warranty ), and damages. Once the lawsuit ha been filed you will accept no agreement less than a full refund of the purchase price, tax, title and license and documented expenses, including legal fees. You will deliver the bike to the KTM agent who sold it to you. You need to find an attorney and advise KTM of his name and contact information.

Interview several attorneys. Present what documentation you have at the interviews. Suggest a class action lawsuit? Your agreement should be no fees or charges of any kind will be paid other than through a judgment in your favor that covers attorneys charges and fees. The attorney must agree to represent you from the point of filing a lawsuit to a favorable decree by the court. KTMs' attorney will immediately check out the strength of your attorney. A one man legal show is no match for a law firm of 15 lawyers. If you engage a divorce attorney to act on your behalf you have already lost. Realize this means KTM will turn the issue over to the corporate attorneys and will not be able to correspond with you other than through their attorneys. You will need to stop riding the bike and park it in a safe place protected from weather and tampering. Chances are it will be a few years before any resolution is had.

Or you could picket the KTM dealer every Saturday for the next four months until the dealer pushes KTM to act on the matter. Contact a television investigative reporter and see if they would be interested in assisting in the matter. KTM does not want that much public exposure. You might want to try this route first. I wish the best of luck to you. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Heats up after riding 5 miles 99 640 lcd KTM

Check the coolant level & that it is making the radiator hot, if not the thermostat isnt opening & needs replacing.
Otherwise it could be an mechanical problem - check to see if any one part of the engine is hotter than it should be & there lies the problem

Good Luck
Hope this helps.

I have a 2007 560 smr. I rode to work , 7 miles, got there and the engine oil was pushing out.

The engine may have been over-filled with oil, or the crankcase venting system hose is plugged. It may also be a bad oil seal on any shaft that penetrates the engine/transmission case.

Take the bike back to the dealer. The problem with KTM bikes is that they are so highly engineered that most riders, ( and most dealers ), have a problem getting them tuned properly. Since the bike is new, the carb should not be the problem. Don't mess with it. Have the dealer check the radiator for proper coolent level and coolent flow. If the bike has a fan, check the sensor and fan operation.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

Bikes normally have vent/drain hoses for overflow and whatnots. Nore than likely, the hoses you see are them. Trace them to find out for sure. As for your bike, you might have to do a little carb tuning. But to start simple, run some cleaner through. Maybe you just have a little gunk in there. I also suggest if you do not have already, purchase a repair manual. It will help you troubleshoot in case you need to do a little work.
