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

2006 KTM 65 SX idles too high


Hi, Samantha and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted, pinched or need lubrication.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak.
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector.
10. Multiple carburetors not in sync.

We have a 2016 SX 125. The front suspension has never been right. My rider says it shakes in the air over big jumps. It appears to go away the longer you ride the bike. What could this be?


possible un- even fork fluid in each fork leg. I had those same symptoms on a RM-125, it took myself a while to figure out what it was.

Jerking at a 25 to 30 mile an hour speed


Look at the slide needle--'c' clip unbroken and retainer pushed down tight. Has the 'c' clip position been changed? Try a new spark plug.

Look into your power valve. If it doesn't operate freely, you won't get peak performance. They can get gummed up.

Oil spitting out of exshuat


Hi, Well that is one way to look at it. Since you don't indicate the premix, the best advice I can give you is that the oil in the mixture is indeed not burning, the easiest fix being to change your premix to include less oil. There are other fixes, hotter plug, higher octane but until you ride and get comfortable with this bike, either let it drip a little or change the mix for now and change it as needed as you get used to it. Good Luck to you, this should Fixsya!

New spark plugs last 10-15 minutes of riding


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, the only factor to be checked that could foul a sparkplug for your bike would be the 2T oil injector/pump. There is too much 2T oil going to the combustion chamber. Either the injector would require restricting or for some reason, there is also 2T oil in the fuel tank (pre-mix).

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
