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.

I know with the 300's you need the 04+ airbox, subframe, mudflap, and rear fender. idk if youve had a ktm 2 stroke before but make sure you do some runs with a new spark plug to make sure you have a good coffee color on the plug. They can be a bitch if not jetted right. For like 600 bucks you can pick up SMR forks and rear shock. I would do that that way you can bolt on all the later SM goodies with the 26mm axel.

If you change airbox than you need to change seat.

I have subframe from 125. 250 will fit also.
You most looking subframe with two handles for muffler. Because some bikes have only one muffler handle.

Very awesome project! Congratulations on choosing the correct engine configuration. :D

Great finish on the polished parts. I'm just wondering about your triple clamps - did you just use a grinder/sander to smooth out the casting marks? Any tips & tricks there? I'm looking to get mine all smooth ready for paint.

Looking forward to seeing how this progresses, may give me some ideas for my 380!

Hi, i used a small sanding wheel in my dremmel multi tool, to smooth the side castings on the clamps, then polished them up until it was all smooth. but you really need a good sisal mop for polishing out marks in the alloy
