I wondered why after years of smashing pumpkins on this forum, you'd buy another.

The o-ring, sleeve and seal on the c -shaft probably only need cleaned.

The chain is the same as any other bikes so you can't blame KTM for that.

Your ttr didn't have enough power to pull a sick whore off a piss pot let alone damage a chain.

Have the cam welded and reground. Do your homework, a thin replaceable sleeve can possibly be pressed or loctited on and a different seal used.

My 640 uses a 2 piece shaft.


EDIT: Just saw sleeving posts...

So, speaking of big bore dual sports and Australian ones breaking and jap ones being indestructible... ()

Kawasaki recently saw the advantages of upping their 250cc street bike to 300cc. Anyone care to guess if they'll do the same with the klx? Obviously wouldn't be the same motor as the street bike (twin), but we know that a 300 piston can easily fit in the current setup (aftermarket goes to 351cc!).

I figure a new fuel injected klx300s would be a hell of a competitor with the wrr and new crf!

Thats pretty country to ride thru. Knox County is the "Montana" of Ohio. I would like to join you but due to limits on time, I will have to restrict my riding to doing donuts on the Scioto Country Club Golf Course. Those greens are just beggin for it. I love to hear Yuppies screaming in rage.

18th annual Perry turkey run

Thanksgiving Thurs.
Perry state forest parking lot.
9:20 a.m. out on bikes.

Rules:
Have good knobbies, and a good running bike or stay home.
No whiners. It's Ohio in the fall. Expect mud, leaves, roots, and hills.
Make sure the guy behind you makes the turn.
Have fun. Tell lies later about how big the hills were, and how deep the mud was.
We'll ride until 11:30 or 1, or whenever.
Oh, and:
If you show up on a 650, you better be able to ride that mother in the woods, or we're leaving it there when you bury it, and kill the battery.

I can't make it, but I like your style!

Hmm, I might have to tell the family that something very important came up and I can't make Thanksgiving dinner.

Already covered that.


The o-ring, sleeve and seal on the c -shaft probably only need cleaned.

Of all the things, this is the least concerning cause the fix is cheap. I'll try cleaning it before putting the new kit in, but I'd wager my paycheck that it's gonna take a new seal, washer, sprocket...something.

The chain is the same as any other bikes so you can't blame KTM for that.

I was being a little tongue in cheek, I don't blame KTM for the chain I blame Obama and Cher movies.

Your ttr didn't have enough power to pull a sick whore off a piss pot let alone damage a chain.

This chain failed prematurely, and the bike's power really doesn't factor in. The sprockets are still perfect, no sign of torque wear on them or the chain. Not the fault of the bike, again I blame higher powers.

Have the cam welded and reground. Do your homework, a thin replaceable sleeve can possibly be pressed or loctited on and a different seal used.

My 640 uses a 2 piece shaft.

EDIT: Just saw sleeving posts...
It's a question of cost on the cam. I did my homework on KTM talk and elsewhere, saw no cheap/easy fixes. Shaft is small, not much to work with for a sleeve. It's a poor design. Some things are done very very well on this bike, the WP ain't one of them.

WP = water pump - just finally caught on - was wondering why you kept bringing up the suspension - I feel like holding a sign up in the mirror

If I wasnt on night shift this week, I'd consider it...but I need my beauty sleep...sounds like fun
