SOURCE: getting torque from ktm 200 xc

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry. I have been going over some of the older help requests that have been archived and
trying to provide solutions for those that didn't get answered. Hope
this information helps.

The simplest way to build torque is a trade out increasing gear ratio for speed. Go up a tooth on your rear sprocket.
That being said, I'm sure you want more beans out of your engine. Jetting has a huge effect at high altitudes (riding in the mountains). On the more expensive side you can purchase 3rd party pipes that change the power band, you can, do some flowing on the ports and removing material raising the exhaust port to make a huge difference. Cleaning the carbon buildup out of the port adjust system might help as well.
"If your a fat guy like me, a weight loss program could take as much as 25 lbs off the bike and the need for torque decreases some".
Depending on the bikes age, you might want to trade up to to a 300 or 350 where you have more torque and six speeds using the speed ranges in the transmission while not loosing top end. Have fun and keep the wire tight.

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.
