    Oh man! you allways get all the cool bikes. Wish I could find a good used 200 XCW, or even a 150 XCW

    I bought it off Trailer Rails about a year ago. I was hunting for a KDX220, Jason gave me an offer I couldn't refuse on the KTM. Sold my CRF450 and never regretted it once. That bike had wayyyy to much power for me.

    I said the same thing. Having a bike set up to fit you is amazing.

    The Pitts. area has lost a great guy and rider over the wknd. I’m sure you folks have seen in the news Alex Alshanski was killed in an ATV accident Saturday nite. I’ve enjoyed Alex coming to my place to ride quite a few times. He was just an all around fun guy to be around. He will be sorely missed from our riding circle.
    My prayers go out to his wife and daughters.

    i went with 100 front and 120 rear. Rear is sweet. i just ordered 40 more for the front. i bit the shit going down a flat ice covered gravel road. i blame it on the lack of side studs.

    A guy I know from Murrysville has his 2016 KTM 350 EXC-F for sale. Barely ridden. 4.2 hours and 112(?) miles. Not a typo. He wants $7500 (firm). Comes with a few extras. Shoot me an IM and I'll forward his contact info.

    I was seriously considering buying it, but have decided to stick with my 530 for (at least) another season and work on my fitness/skills rather than throw money at a better woods bike.

    That’s a good deal for that bike. If I didn’t have one I’d buy it.

    Which carb did you get and what is the bike you put in on? I am having issues with my 2016 TE300 and why I ask. Thanks.

    A few of my buds are riding the 2017 KTM 300. I put a couple JD Jet kits in them that really helps but a couple of them put the old carb from their other bikes in and they’re the happiest.

    Its a 36mm keihin pwk air striker,
    My bikes a 2017 te250. The stock 38mm munuki was really picky and changed every time the wind blew different.

    Hightest is right, my carb is oem for a 2015' ktm xcw 300.

    My $30 LED light from Amazon works awesome. Third night on it. KTM plastic in 15 degrees not so good. Fender shroud n tail light.$$$$. I hope we get that snow.

    Cold temps are tough on plastic. I have seen some spectacular plastic explosions in the cold.
