    All the advise is good and spot on...

    IMHO or even IMEO - start with fresh compression. Ring (in the case of the 200) or piston and ring with new fresh bore and THEN start to refine carb exhaust etc. The KTM 200 will run with almost no compression...

    If you know the compression is OK (can you push it through with your HAND? if so it aint shit) then I would look at gummed up exhaust First before other remedies. BTW I have repack kit that has never been opened.

    The more I listen to the vid the more I think you are clogged up in the muffler...
    who knows....

    Ask Gimmie why a bad battery on a 2012 5 Hunny acts like a clogged filter!!!!

    Good luck.

    My 300 ran on 60:1 flawlessly for years. I ran BelRay H1R in it. Didn't smoke, piston and rings wonderful shape after two seasons of racing (including 24 hour race at Perry Mountain) .

    I never would have mixed it so lean if the KTM owners manual didn't call for it.

    Also I second Mr Robert Dirt's prognosis of power valve cleaning time has arrived.

    [QUOTE-start with fresh compression.[/QUOTE]


    So true! With no valve train to breathe through, ring seal is EVERYTHING to a 2stroke. If you pull the jug off, put the ring in it and measure end gap. .003 per inch of bore is a good rule of thumb, I bet yours is fat.....

    Can you brazen small holes on something like a dampner rod? I want to fix the front end on my XR but can't do a whole lot till I make that fix first.

    New brakes front and rear, new front tire and fresh oil made my morning constructive. Afterwards, Spectre and I headed towards Timber Lake for a shake down ride. The sand was the pristine and sticky you get after a hard rain!

    Saw a couple guys riding on Ranger Camp Road not sure who they were.

    Great day!

    Sure, but you really should get some Emulators ( Race Tech) from Bob at R&R. They are reasonably priced & worlds better than damper rod mods!! I have them on my P.V. YZ's (465 & 250)...they are great

    Ten of us gathered and rode some forest roads and such.

    Great to see the old group together again and great to welcome two n00bs to the group.

    SR56 Rode the shit out of his 230Honda and showed you dont need orange or even tires to keep up with us slow pokes.

    Video is below: nothing fancy just 4hours cut to less than 4 minutes. Hope you enjoy.

    I really got to make up for lost time this weekend.

    Special thanks to Barney for keeping us all together...

    Forgot video ; its coming.
