Question about 2013 KTM SX 85
I have changed the spark plug before every race and have also taken the carby out and cleand it and blown it out , i have heard people say that ktm have these bikes set up rich for bed in period and that they move the clip up one in the carby so it runs leaner ??

First KTM's are great bikes and are reliable.
Second don't adjust the carb unless you know what your doing.
Third it's a thumper....ie big single cylinder and is also a dirt bike.
So with that being said, if your riding it on the street it's going to overheat and if your riding in tight woods is will overheat as well. The puke hose goes to the frame between the radiators and is a messy location in the event of coolant loss. Most riders make the mistake adjusting thiers carbs when that is usually Not the problem. Unless you've installed an exhaust system or live at high altitude you do not need to adjust anything on the carb Except maybe the IDLE stop screw.
For overheating: KTM has a great add on electric fan kit that will help greatly. Also use Engine Ice or at least Water Wetter for better cooling performance. This costs more but is my favorite....buy some Evans NPG coolant and never boil over again!
Lastly, I'm a huge Husky fan but buying that next is like moving sideways, it's still a 4-stroke. Note... KTM's and Husaberg's (the original husqvarna) are made in the SAME Factory.
