G'day jarm.
Hope i'm not to late to respond.
First of all push the valve or control flap as ktm calls it,upwards through the exaust port,turn the pin a quarter of a turn,you can do this with a metric 5x40 bolt,then......SHAAABOOOMM.that valve should come straight.Installation???.Well i guess you can see how it works now,basically the reverse of removal,Just make sure to lube the pin,insert until it engages the flap,then rotate it a quarter(1/4)of a turn.The flat section on the pin must face out toward the exaust port.
Good luck and hope i could help
J STRONGARMS...hehee ..ha haaa!

HI, I have a Suzuki LT80, it starts ok but it smokes like hell and there dosnt seem to be much compression what could this be? thanks.

It seems you have worn rings and/or barrel and piston. You will have to get the barrel off the engine to ispect. Unbolt the carb and exhaust from the engine. Unbolt the 4 nuts on top of the head. Remove the head and barrel from the engine. Inspect the piston for scoring and wear. Remove the piston by removing the circlip next to the gudgeon pin. Do not drop the clip into the engine.(stuff some clean rags in the engine under the piston. The gudgeon pin can now be pushed out of the piston and the piston removed.Have the barrel and piston measured for wear.
If you're on a tight budget you can replace rings only but this is a penny wise pound foolish solution. You'll have the same problem in 2 months time.
It is best to rebore the barrel and fit an oversize piston and new rings. The barrel can also be resleeved but this is a more costly option and should only be exersized if you cannot obtain an oversize piston.

I need to replace my seat for a KTM 400 EXC 2002. Very hard to find any other KTM seat that will fit my 2002??

Seats changed in 2003. So i think you'll be looking for a 4 stroke ktm between '98 and '02. Ebay is an easy route to go, or you can order a new foam and cover from Moose or Enduro Engineering and rebuild your own seat.

Knocking noise on kx 85

The rod should move side to side this is called little end side shake. the correct amount is .8mm to 1.3mm make sure the rod does not have any movement up and down on the bearing.If this is all good your knock may be from a worn piston. If its more of a grinding sound it could be the crank bearings.

Connecting rod exchange

It takes a hydraulic press to separate a crankshaft. Beyond that, you must have twin dial guages when reassembling the crank so that the two halves are set in correct alighnment. NOT a job for amatures.
