Your dealership is operated by a bunch of monkeys and baboons! any competant mechanic could fix this, but must be human, not monkey. you can try to get them to pay for a competant mechanic to fix this, as they are not capable. or take it to the next nearest dealership, no matter how far away. sorry bro, this sucks big time.

You need to work with a suspension specialist shop to lower your bike. They can take apart the forks and shock and install spacers to limit the travel and make the bike lower. This mod is easily removed in the future if you decide to sell the bike etc.

Try Enduro Engineering or Pro Action There are other local shops that do suspension work... ask around at local shops and the KTM dealer etc.

My 2008 ktm 530 lost all its oil in the engine on a 85 mile trip to a concert . the bike is brand new 1700 miles and now the engine is shot and ktm doesnt want to take care of it. the bike was still...

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.

I took a spill on my 09 ktm 125 sx and now the bike idles high enough to ride without using the throttle. Also the throttle is harder to turn while the bike is running. Any ideas what to do?

Check the throttle assembly for dirt or damage,and the tube where it turns on the bar. The bars may be bent, also check for damage to the cable, it may have jammed somewhere or stretched during the crash

they should be one or two little screws on the carb you can turn them to alter the tickover of the engine and you proberly bent the bracket that connects the the throttle to the engine so maybe your throttle is not shutting of propperly because the cable is not running freely in the casing cus its not going straigth throught it or the casing/cable are damaged cuasing them to catch i.e the cable is frayed

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?
