SOURCE: How much fork oil in a 2002 KTM 400 SX

White power allow a 110mm air gap with springs out and fork compressed as a general guide ,adjust from there according to prefrance . Thats probably,from memory about 600ml or so.If you overfill the leg ,cut the tip off the fork oil bottle , mark out on a clear piece of fuel hose 110 mm from one end of hose with a permanent marker, attach other end to the tip of the now empty fork oil bottle nipple, squeeze bottle,insert hose down to 110mm mark,take hand pressure off bottle and WWHHAAALLLAAA!!!!!!!!. Magically the excess oil is sucked back up into bottle.....Don't you just love the forces of nature. : ] ride on DB ......Hope this gets you out of trouble ....Flabbycat

SOURCE: my ktm 65 sx gear shift wont select down

not sure bout that bike specificaly, probly there is a spring on the gearshift shaft , or something to return the lever and shift drum back whenever actuated. no matter what it is, you gotta split the cases to fix it .

I have looked but am at a loss to find it also.
If you drain the oil, refil it with the same amount and then check the levels adding as required.
Hope this helps.

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your KTM Inquiry.
More than likely you have a jetting problem. My first thought would be to call the dealer service department and ask what jetting they suggest for the local area you are riding. May or may not be able to advise you and want you to bring it in. Check your user manual and see if any jetting suggestions exist. Pretty easy do it your self fix.
Start by cleaning your air cleaner so it's not drawing excessive fuel to air mixture. Replace fuel filter and confirm gas tank vent tube is not pinched or plugged.

  1. Idle - if it's fat at the bottom it will gurgle and overload and has tendency to run bad and stall at start. Adjust the air screw out about 1 1/2 turns. May need smaller jet size.
  2. Middle - Needle Jet and Tower. If it runs bad at half throttle to 3/4 this may be allowing over fueling. Simple fix is to lower the slide cir-clip holding the slide to a lower notch allowing the needle to project further down in to the pilot and leaning out the mixture bypassing the needle.
  3. Main Jet - Allows for optimum speed when you have the wire tight at high rpms. If it's fat and not running right go down a size on the main jet. Engine should have a smooth scream.
Jet's are comparatively inexpensive so experiment a bit until you get a cocoa brown spark plug color after a good run. As always make sure your float is working correctly and no shellac exists from winter storage with old gas.
Thanks for contacting FixYa,

My son's 2005 KTM 65 SX won't shift into neutral running or not. Any suggestions want to sell it as he's outgrown it.

It could be a bent selector shaft,has the chain fallen off before it was parked up ? If not it could be a selector shaft pawl problem inside the engine or a bent selector fork.

Ktm 250 sx

the SX forks really should be taken to a suspension tech to get the inner chamber properly bleed out.
You never just add a cc amount because there is usually some left inside. You bleed out the air and fill. once no more air is coming out you set the fluid level on the outter chamber 110mm to 120mm with the spring out and the fork collapsed.

How much oil do you put in the front forks of a 2004 ktm sx 250

A good rule of thumb on anything that has a plug that removes to pour oil in, which I am assuming this one does, get it level and pour oil into it until it just starts to run out of the hole,. Again make sure it is setting level.

I need to know the correct carburetor float level for a 2005 ktm 65 sx

All carburators work axcitly the same . The float level is dertermined by the amount of fuel in the float bowl . When the fuel level reaches a point in the bowl the floats rise and shut of the neddle valve until the engine can draw enough fuel out of the bowl to drop the floats so the neddle valve opens again to supply the bowl with fuel to make the engine run its fool proof . If your haveing an over flow issue where fuel is running out the tube on the sides then pull the carb and clean it you shouldn;t need any parts just a can of carb cleaner and always clean the air filter that how dirt gets in .Good luck with it
