    Think I popped a head gasket...

    350 ktm with plenty hours, 260 Ok, so fan fuse went at Arrows and I nursed it home... Now on idle after about 2 minutes it spits coolant from the overflow - if I run it with the cap off it bubbles like mad... No oil in water or milk in oil. I've been given an estimate of 4 - 5 k to fix it...

    Rad cap, surely? Ktm 350

    Bikes doing something a bit strange -waters coming out at pretty much normal operating temperature from the radiator overflow pipe. I put rad fluid about 1 cm over the fins, start it up, and a few seconds before the fan comes on it pisses out at least 200ml of water - must be the rad cap?? Was...

    Hi All, on my 13 ktm 350 I'm experiencing a "knocking" feeling through the bars on the bumpier stuff. Headstock and swingarm feels solid, I can't replicate the issue when not riding.... Am I being paranoid? Any ideas?

    The long and the short of it

    I've started riding the Freeride more lately - its an awesome machine. Its most attractive feature? I can almost always get a foot down no matter how gnarly the terrain gets!

    The Legendary YZ 250 2T

    Question: For Extreme Enduro, YZ 250 2T with all the Mods.... Yes or No? I sat on one and took it for a spin and it felt soooo good. Small, Nimble, Powerful. Who has or had one, vs KTM 200 or 250? (Not trying to start a debate of MX modded bikes vs Enduro bikes)
