Pretty much any bike shop that sells dirt bikes will have fuel screws in stock, since (until this recent advent of FI), they pretty much all use an FCR carb. Mine is a Motion Pro, and since it was installed and set, I have only had to reach under and give it a 1/4 turn once. Set and forget in my case.

Your bike still has the smog stuff installed? I would be surprised since it already has an Akrapovic pipe, and that would cause such a lean situation over the barely running smog set-up, that it wouldn't run at all. I have a JD jet kit, and it has also been supplemented to do a second bike with FCR jets found at the local bike shop.

As far as tires go, get ready to hear a pile of choices, since they are dependent on riding conditions and preference. I have a Bridgestone 403 front/ Maxxis Desert IT rear, and a rear Bridgestone 404 rear waiting on the rack. Seem to be fine.

Its running. but not really good. Ive ordered the JD jet kit and Works connection fuel screw. got these 4 parts ordered from ktm today

0603061001 CU-SEAL RING DIN7603-6X10X1
0025060086 HH COLLAR SCREW M6X8 TX30
0603100141 COPPER GASKET DIN7603-10X14X1
0910100003 PLUG DIN0910-M 10X1

That should cover the de-smog.

Should I look into other mods?

I'm thinking about a 50/50 tire because I will do lots of road riding. was thinking of this one
Pirelli MT 21 Rallycross

How are the ones you suggested for 50/50 usage?
Cheers!

I like the Pirelli MT 21s myself. They are not gr8 in the mud, but they work pretty good IMO.

I also like the MAXXIS IT. I am running those right now and they are wearing pretty good. Again, not a gr8 mud tire.

I want to test the Michelin S12 and the MAXXIS ENs. The ENs are a little pricy though.

You might just have to experiment and see what works for you in your area.

The biggest change I made to mine was jetting. But mine is a XC-W so it was not all smogged up to begin with.

What you guys think about this setup? Still trying to figure out the best way to route this. To run a filter with it or not.

breather setup?

Johnktm------why not just run the end of that hose back hi into your airbox---with, or without, a filter. i'm trying to think of why that would not be a good idea---as I think that's the way I done mine.

@JohnKTM,

I ran that hose into my airbox via the appropriate hose fitting. I removed the air filter and drilled a hole in the box about an inch above the lowest point in the box. Then inserted the brass hose fitting and used a washer and nut to tighten it down to the body og the airbox. Then connected the breather line using a hose clamp. Pretty simple mod really.

Floppy tail?

So I removed the stock tail section with the tail light assembly and plat holder and replaced it with the Sicass LED setup. It has made the tail section must more tidy and does not get caught in the rear tire. The problem is that it is really floppy. Any suggestions on making the rear fender more rigid? I've tried talking suggestively to it and rubbing on it with Plexus and nothing.

The Euro plate holder is really the best option. It has all the support the stock one has. Here is a post from Hacknslash's thread where he installs a very similar XC-W tail with an LED light. You could just buy the XC-W part and try and get the sicass light to work with it
The sicass is a very multi-fit pice. You think it is floppy on a KTM, you should see it on a Husaberg.

I have a Wolfman Enduro tailpack on my rear fender.

I drilled through the KTM fender and the Sicass inner fender to mount the Wolfman.

No more floppy.
