    Default 2002 Ktm 250 Exc

    Well I picked this up a few weeks ago now, It was in great shape to begin with but i figured i would re do some things.

    I picked up a set of those DNA motard wheels and all in all they aren't to bad. Seem to be ok so far.

    Here is some pics. I Still need to do some stuff, it needs different hand guards and a different headlight. I also have a graphics kit coming. And i didn't put on the new rear fender yet. Its plated but not exactly legal lol











    It has an FMF pipe and Silencer, WER steering damper, Carbon Pipe guard, Devol Rad Guards. Engine is pretty much stock besides the pipe.

    Any input would be great on what to do next?

    You're right about the handguards. You need something a little sleeker....

    looks a lot like my 2004 i just got into supermoto mode:

    Thats my 98 KTM 620 rxc, Im rebuilding the front forks and rear suspension. So i figured new swingarm bearings and all that good crap while its apart.

    I would of taken the 250 out tonight but it was a bit to foggy, couldnt see shit.

    And i thought i would ride the 250 in the dirt more than i did, but i figured wtf i can get a plate on the thing 250 2 stroke motard would be cool

    if you want to use it also on the track i would add a 320mm front disk brake (or 310mm) and a bigger brake caliper.

    VERY NICE BIKE

    keep posting pics!

    Well heres how i feel about it. I went out for a quick romp, Cornering the bike still feels way to tall to lean it in to much, i need to drop the forks a bit i guess. thats really the only complaint so far, gearing was alright

    I need a new piston in mine now, but it also was ridden for around 4 months on the current piston by myself, and around 4 months in the hands of a theif. I just run 32:1 premix when I take it to the track.

    How is that thing, I've been thinking about picking one up. Does it go okay on the road? The highway? Have you had any maintenance issues? I just got into two strokes and it opened my eyes. Do excs have a key and speedo?

    I know my 02 400 EXC 4stroke does not have either key or speedo. Fixed the speedo issue with a GPS and the key issue with a big ol cable lock

    lol, yeah the hand guards are crazy big ill have new ones by this summer. I wouldn't recommend this bike to cruise around on, its great for quick romps like i said but not cruising. I so far haven't had any maintenance issues but i probably have less than 2 hours of street riding on it. Im not sure weather i am keeping it yet, i just picked up another lc4 to start building. But i think i will at least keep it until spring take it to the track a few times see how it hangs.

    And yeah no key.
