Hi, i'm in the process of stripping, cleaning and making my ktm 380 into a street legal supermoto, i've always wanted a big 2T and when this came up i had to have it,

here some pics from the strip and rebuild

The bike as i got it, was not in bad condition, owner had looked after the engine but frame and other bits need restoring

Now the hard part stripping all the powdercoat off the old frame

i found a great spray that removes paint and powder coat easily
it available from ebay UK its called avbiz paint stripper

and its awesome here's what the frame looked like after 15 mins of being spayed
the powdercoat just falls off!

i made a video short video on youtube about it as well to help others

Very nice!
How do you painted the engine? It's spray paint or powder coating?
i use Hammerite Satin rattle can, on the cases, ive used this before its petrol proof and hard wearing

Managed to get the clamps polished today, also checked out the reed block it turns out i have dual stage reeds fitted anyone know if these are any good, on my old 2 stroke racer we used very thin carbon fibre, these reeds i have in at the moment are fibre glass and seem quite stiff, prob better for top end and less flutter?

Managed to get alot done today, including vinyl wrap the front forks as i thought this would be the easier and better than painting them, came out spot on! bars and controls done, its starting to look like a bike now, carb cleaned and fitted, i'm running a 175 main and 42 pilot at sea level anyone have any info on jetting for the 380 as plug did look a bit lean when i pulled it before the rebuild.
