I had a 2016 Husqvarna FC250, basically the same bike as a KTM. I'd just like to comment about reliability. Always ran a clean filter every ride, and changed the oil every 3 hours. At 60 hours the valves were bang on in spec and did not have to be shimmed.

Added reply in a thread KTM 250sxf tensioner 3/17/2018 4:42 PM

To me it sounds like you are not re-setting the cam chain tensioner properly. It's quite a pain but very easy to do once you figure it out. You must place something like a coin or around that thickness on the edge of the tensioner, and then press down ... more »

Idle sounds perfect to me in the first video, I'd leave it at that. The reason it's not revving out is because it's loaded up (excess of fuel) you need to take it for a ride and clear it out.

Sounds like it's idling just fine in the first video...

The real question still lies, will he be able to flat land on the front or rear wheel!

I was very much like you at 16, I grew up riding, loved it, but around your age I really wanted to start racing. My parents said no for years, but I had finally convinced them to allow me to get out there. I started off taking it easy, going to open

I think we're going to need a time machine to determine this one....

Added reply in a thread New KTM85sx delivered w/o premix... 2/13/2018 2:36 PM

This is correct, the 4 strokes are shipped with a little bit of gas, but the 2 strokes come empty. I work at a Husky dealership, we always add fresh pre-mix to the new 2 strokes.

Added reply in a thread Which 2018 250F did you buy and why? 1/30/2018 3:53 PM

KTM owns Husky. I don't see them going anywhere... and as for reliability, I put 92 hours on my 16 FC250. Valves didn't move once. Put a new piston at 92 and kept on riding...

Damn... back injuries really do suck! When you say severed his spine, meaning damage to the spinal cord as well? Prayers sent his way!!

Oh wow! That is good to know... which vertebraes did you have fused?

Added reply in a thread Stem Cells 11/26/2017 6:03 AM

I'll be following this post... I had L1-L3 fused about 4 months ago now. Hopefully disc degeneration isn't something I'll have to deal with in the future also..

Added reply in a thread Keep or get rid of 2016 FC250 11/25/2017 9:25 PM

I own a 2016 FC250 also. The first 60 hours were ridden by a local A rider. The next 32 hours were ridden by myself, a mid pack B rider. I took apart the top end to check things out at that point. The valves were perfectly in the middle of spec, and

Added reply in a thread Mika metals bar pad over Renthal twin walls... 11/22/2017 8:21 PM

I had a brand new set of Mika bars. Second ride on them, I tipped over in a sand berm and bent them enough to notice it uncomfortably. Two other friends of mine also bought Mika's and after small tip overs on the sand the same thing happened to them. ... more »

I have a 2016 Husqvarna FC250, so pretty close of a bike

I bought mine with 60 hours on an all stock motor, then rode it up until 92 hours before checking it out. Valves were perfectly in spec, piston ring gap was perfectly in spec and everything ... more »
