Question about KTM SX 250 Motorcycles

1 Answer

Hi I have a 1996 ktm 250 sx, It has a persistent chattering noise I do have a blown head gasket, but that is not the problem. I do have power loss in first and second, but once I hit third it flys. I'm sure thats because of the head gasket but that doesn't explain the engine chatter. It does idle. Please help me out I just bought this p.o.s and I need to know if its worth fixing.

It can be just the head gasket. The KTM are very good bikes, if the price is good Go for it. Replacing the head gasket will alow you to see for yourself whats up.

What type of clutch oil do I use for my 2006 ktm 250sxf


Do you mean brake fluid for clutch pump or oil for the engine?
If you ask about oil for engine KTM recomend Motorex Power Synt 4T 10W-50.
If you ask about the clutch brake fluid you will need brake fluid DOT 4 or DOT 5.1. See link: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/90432/Ktm-250-Sx-F.html?page=36

I have water leaking into the gear box is it the o rings (4) ? The bike is a 2000 250 sx


Is the oil in your engine emulsified? (creamy substance in the oil or around the oil filler) If so then it would seem as if you may have a leaking head gasket, or cylinder base gasket.

I have a 99 ktm 250 sx. Had to get cylinder replated and a new piston. I put the bike back together and oil was leaking from the front lower end of the cylinder and i wont idle. Took the bike back ap


If there is a leak in the head gasket it will never run properly. Maybe the carburetor is plugged if it has sat for a while. The gas/oil mixture can go bad over time. The leak could be from a loose gas line. Or possibly even oil dripping from the oil filter if you just cleaned and re-oiled it.

2002 ktm 250 dirtbikes oil leak between cylinder and head by exhuast port


Hi, Anonymous to find the source of your oil leak, start at the point where you see oil and trace its path going up and forward, blowing baby powder from the palm of your hand will help in those difficult to see areas if there is too much oil present then buy a spray can of engine degreaser apply it to the affected area then rinse off with a pressure wand or garden hose, use compressed air to blow off excess water or just let it drip dry, take your bike for a 15 minute ride and check for the leak.
