Ktm 2004 250 exc oil leak

Good day, I just changed the oil in my 04 KTM 250 exc four stroke, and on the first start up it started leaking oil at the head/exhaust joint and burning it out the exhaust. IT's clearly oil smoke, as it smells like oil not the sweet smell of coolant. IS there a common cause for this? It didn't smoke at all before the oil change. I don't believe i overfilled it, the oil level window has a small gap at the top so its not jammed full.

SOURCE: Smoke

If it's liquid cooled then that grey smoke is more than likely steam ( the head gasket is on it's way out). If it was burning oil you would able to smell it.,,

SOURCE: how to fill the front suspension on a ktm exc 2001

If you get the sevice manual or contact a dealer to get the correct oil amount for your bike, they need to know the model and year, you have to have the forks off the bike. take the fork caps off, take the springs out compress the upper fork tube all the way and add the specified oil. if they also give you the measured amount from the top that's the best way to get both fork oil levels exact. there is a special tool that you set the oil level in millimeters and it sucks out the oil to the right level, but before you do that step after adding the oil always pull and push on the cartage rod several times to remove air from the cartage tube. you will hear the air coming out and you will feel the changes in the cartage rod as the cartage tube fills up with oil and the air is removed.
something i'm confussed on though is if you replaced a seal you would have had to brake down the fork to replace it. you would have poored the oil into a container, cleaned all the internal parts,and used a fork seal driver to install the new seal. part of your question asks where do i put the oil in? thats in the open end of the fork after you have taken off the fork cap. It sounds to me like you only replaced the dust seal on one fork. that is not going to fix your leaking fork. you need to replace the oil seal thats pressed inside of the top fork tube.

SOURCE: Oil Leak at exhaust flange

No major problem. The proper mix is 32 to 1 gas and oil. That equals 4 ounces of 2 stroke ENGINE oil to one gallon of gas. Do not use MOTOR oil in the gas. 10w40 motor oil is what goes in the gearbox. Tighten the exhaust flange.

A top ranking please ... Thanks BJS!

SOURCE: 1995 KTM 250-EXC Buring Oil

you possibly have a bad seal on your crank. Its called a labyrinth seal and it will be on your clutch side because it is drawing in crankcase oil. the other side would make it run lean by drawing in air by the stator. if it is eating crankcase oil and not leaking it, it is most likely your problem. you can do a leakdown test on it to confirm the problem. put the piston at bottom dead center and compress the cylinder to about 10 pounds of air using a leakdown tester or a compression tester hose that can be used to hook up to an air compressor somehow and hold the pressure, but do not go above that because you could damage those seals with too much pressure. Check to see if the cylinder will hold the pressure for a good amount of time on its own. Check for air coming out of the crank vent hose or the oil fill hole. Also dont overlook the simple things like your premix ratio. try 42:1 or 50:1 ratios of gas to premix oil.

Hi, Ian and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.

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.

2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets

What is the fuel mixture for a 2002 KTM 300 EXC 2 stroke? Thanks


WIth Shell v-power and your favourite 2-stroke oil, you could go 50:1 (that's from my dealer). I have been running 50:1 since my 2002 300 EXC has been new, always use new mix for every ride, and drain whatever leftover is in the tank every two weeks.

2009 KTM 250 exc-f excessive oil use, no apparent oil leaks or blue smoke


It is normal for these bikes to use some oil. A typical, maintained 250 4 stroke will use a pint of oil or more in one day of riding - depending on a lot of variables, of course. Oil consumption on these four strokes is quite typical.
