Any help would be cool. Thanks
I don't have a KTM but I believe that 12VDC is 12VDC no matter what bike /battery combination makes it. Get the battery of the correct manufactures recommendations. I'd say you will be fine.

Has this happened to anyone before?
When you removed the tank to replace the clutch cable you probably pinched the breather hose (clear vinyl) between the frame/tank when you reassembled it. Guys are saying check the gas cap, but it may well be the tube pinched way under the tank and you'll never find it. I simply pulled this tube off my bike and run it w/o one now. No gas has spilled out yet, and I don't smell gas venting when I'm riding. Still get the same fuel mileage.

I had the same issues where on extended throttle straights the bike would stall on me and not restart for 20 minutes. The carb is flooding because it's not venting.

I put a 2005 KTM 640 LC4 Supermoto Rear Brake Lever on my '98 RXC...it's spring loaded, folds, wider and looks like the shift lever,

like the one KTMER has on his Adventure

PERFECT! Thanks guys very much! I was having a hell of a time finding a wider brake tip for the old school arm. Problem solved. Much appreciated!

Did some mods today. I said, let there be light! :) Changed out to the Ken Sean mirrors and added the front pack to hold a tube and spoons and bike pump.



Here is the Pelican case I added a while back. The girl friend loves it as it adds a back rest. I love it as its a place to keep things and they never get wet or smashed!


I only use this bike for Two-Up dual sport riding and exploring when we go camping. I added .52 springs up front and a WP-8.0 on the rear. The both of us together without gear weigh 275lbs. It worked out perfect and gave a little extra headroom for luggage weight.

Does anyone know what the number on the bulbs are for the dash lights? I have two burned out and I cannot find the number in the manual or searching here.

Hi, just a big thanks for all the help.
The sprague clutch was fecked, it was in little pieces.
The internal wire holding the bearings on the sprague was broken also.
Nothing else was damaged.
It makes a huge difference if the battery is only a little down.
Charged the battery and the bikes turns over.
I used a electric impact wrench to torque flywheel nut.
For the life of me, I couldn't torque nut with bike in gear and brake on.
Also if anyone in oz needs sprague clutch ktm bunbury hold stock for a speedway driver. Ktm oz had a 4 week wait for part.
Also did the main bearing at same time. The bearing was in good condition but changed it any way. I made the pulley but had to redo bolts a couple of times.
I used a screwdriver to take off bearing holder, no mess. Alfoil works a treat to block vulnerable areas where parts/ metal can fall. The only issue I had was the new bearing washer/ spacer was not tight on roller bearing, it was seated properly but not tight like the outer edge of bearing on engine case.
Once again cheers for the help.

[QUOTE=Geekventure;21677255]Hey all

My 2002 started stalling yesterday after I replaced my clutch cable.



STATUS UPDATE:

VAPOR LOCK CAUSED BY PLUGGED GAS CAP BREATHER...(thank you all for your suggestions!)

My last incident stalling happened the next day coming home from work...I had to switch to reserve and when I did it ended up stalling irregardless of doings so upon first indication of needed to do so. Scarily...it happened when I was splitting lanes so I had to let those two cars go past me and b-line across 3 lanes in front of traffic to get to the outside shoulder.

Needles to say, when I got home I took the gas cap all the way apart by pulling the locking pin out of the spring assembly, removing the locking mechanism and removing the black rubber flapper inside.

I blew into the breather hose itself and NO AIR (or sound of air) was getting through so I had to undo the glue job I had previously done to re-attach the breather hose to the cap. (originally snapped the stem on the cap that the hose slides over to secure it to the cap).

Anyway...after drilling out the hole that I involuntarily glued shut when I re-attached the hose...I could then blow into the breather hose and hear air was passing through.

This time, I more carefully super glued the hose back to it original spot and further secured the joint by globing Shoe GOO (faster drying new black formula) all around it for structural support. (p.s...that stuff should be in your list of "emergency repair tools"...it's strong and flexible and I use it all the time p.s.s....apparently, they have an automotive one too!)

Have you found a source for them? The best place I could find was an online boat store.

http://www.boats.net/parts/detail/ya...517-10-00.html

They're about $2 a piece, but shipping is reasonable. I ordered 4 of them and only paid $1.75 shipping. Most other places I checked were going to charge $8-$9 shipping for a package that only weighs a few ounces.

Question

I said, let there be light! :)

How do you like those lights? (LED?) Can you tell (and show) us more about them? That tire changer is pretty kick ass too! Who makes it and what model#?

My rear axle won't come out!?


Removed right side nut and adjuster plate. other adjuster is loosen.

With penetrating oil, a piece of wood and a small sledge got the axle out 2" or so. wheel moves back and forth. Got the chain off.

Am I missing something? Shouldn't be this hard to get the axle to slide out.

Changing the tires for the first time by myself. Front swap was easy, now I am stuck and can't get the rear wheel off.

Any advice appreciated
