Question about KTM EXC 525 Racing Motorcycles
One of the disadvantages of parking a bike for such a long time. One of 2 things have happened.(Or maybe both.)
Valve stem seals have hardened.
Rings have become gummed up.
Either way you'll need to get the head and barrel off. I've heard of mixing a table spoon brake fluid with a cup of petrol and running that through the carb. I dont recommend it as I've not tried it. Rather try something like valve ease. Dont use it too often. The graphite tends to clog filters. I've also used acetone on my 4X4 but be VERY careful. Use only about a teaspoon full per litre of fuel.
