Yes it can be done, but Ally welding is not something for a novice. Find a local engineering company with a good reputation and they should be able to help.

Hopes this helps you locate a case half. It's a pretty common bike and popular bike. There are a bunch of them out there, mostly in service.

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

I really need your advice on a serious problem:


It depends a lot on the metal that is cracked, and upon your equipment for welding. If it is aluminum you will need to do inert gas shielded welding. If it is ordinary mild steel you can just grind out the harling crack and weld with a good grade of steel rod or wire your choice.

Yes the vin number can identify the bike year make and model. Prior to 1980 sometimes will NOT give engine size.

Hi please reply soon my ktm sx 125 2001 left side crankcase has split 10 centimeters down the middle just behind the sproket, it cant get welded because the sprocket will be pulling at the weld so hard it...


A left crankcase half would probably be a problem even if you found one. The L and R center case on all bikes are matched sets. Slight differences in production can easily create a mis-match. It would be a bummer to purchase a Left case then find that a gear shaft binds up whenever the case screws are tightened. I have seen it many times. Your best bet is to find a used gearbox and either try to use it after checking the shifter prior to mounting in the frame. If it looks like the shifter has problems, put the guts of your old ****** into the new case. I would suggest that you use the output shaft from the new ****** since yours took a beating bad enough to crack the case. Selling for parts is a bad idea. Selling as a project bike is a much better idea. How about using it as a trade-in?

Hi my ktm 125 sx 2001 left hand crankcase has a 10 centimetre split right down the middle i dont think it can be a cheap fix with a weld cos the front sprocket must be sticking out a wee bit cos the chain...


a good weld shop can fix that with a price mind you. The best thing would be to replace it. you'll have to split the case to have it welded so why not just replace it. don't forget the seals and check the bearings.

The F 1 circuit breaker, manual reset is tripping not allowing it to weld. Could it be something as simple as the reset itself


Rated Output at 20% Duty Cycle 150 A at 16 VAC
150 A at 16 VDC Welding Amperage Ranges AC/DC 10 - 165A Max. Open-Circuit Voltage 80 V Amps Input at Rated Output AC-230V: 21A
DC-230V: 23A You need to configure the machine to specifications of the material you going to weld.That is :
-The material of the job
-And the proper amperage to use for the material.
-For aluminum you will use A/C
-Stainless Steele / Chrome Molly D/C

Aluminum MIG Welding
1. The best feeding of wire for aluminum is done with a spool gun. If you can't use a spool gun, use the shortest gun possible and keep the gun as straight as possible. Use Argon only for shielding gas. Only use a push gun technique when welding aluminum. 2. If you are having feeding problems, one thing you can try is a contact tip that is one size bigger than your wire. 3. The most common wire type is ER4043 for all-purpose work. ER5356 is a stiffer wire (easier to feed), and is used when more rigid, higher-strength weld properties are needed. 4. Clean the aluminum before welding, to remove the oxide layer. Use a stainless steel wire brush used only for cleaning aluminum. 5. Fill the crater at the end of the weld to avoid a crack. One way to do this is to dwell in the weld pool for a second at the end of the weld.
