2009 KTM 250 sx Review

thinking “why is he writing a about a 2009 KTM 250 sx!?” Let me answer You and others buy used bikes and to know about how these hold up and more on these Second, the 2012 has a different and linkage, however, the motor is identical to the 2009 KTM. KTM small improvements each rather than huge so the same engine and general are some of the many pieces to the 250sx puzzle.

I could get away and talk about the made each model but it’s time to focus on the of this bike.

After around on four strokes for training and racing all over the and Canada, I got a chance to ride my 250 2 …. In September of 2008 I out a 2007 KTM 250 sx and I was so impressed by the bike I I needed to find one for myself. I how smooth the motor was and how light it I had never ridden a 250 2 … in my head I pictured brutal and no tractability whatsoever.

When I first cracked the and was ready for the rear to spin in of my visor, and it didn’t, I as thrilled.  I was ten further down the track I had expected to be. It was a delight, one I wanted to more.

I began searching. I a brand new 2009 in October and riding. This bike was It had a super light feel to it, well, and had an amazing motor.

The carburetion on this bike was very precise, it was almost it had efi. It ran clean; never too and never too lean. Needing no changes no matter what the The first problem I had was a crack in the pipe, I took it to work and had it no big deal. Not too long after cracked, my silencer fell and I ordered an FMF system.

Around time, the bike probably had 30 hours on it. I started to notice around my spark plug. I it for a while not really knowing the problem was. I took the plug out and didn’t notice Towards the end of May – Early June I to put a top end in the bike (piston came out like the bike had barely ridden) but I noticed a small in the cylinder head.

This is where things get KTM had come out with an updated and it was on back order.  It took me a month to get. This was frustrating.

I went through a lot of and silencers on this bike; no matter what the silencer break in some way and no matter how you changed exhaust O-rings the would crack (you’d have to change them weekly). Sometimes the exhaust would warranty the stuff, times not so lucky. The main that got on my nerves was the down this caused.

Sure I had problems but, I had over 100 of great riding on this and really enjoyed it. This is a lot because usually I get so sick of breaking on bikes I get rid of them half this many rode this bike so both the front and rear were half silver originally black).

Even with the problems I say I got my money’s worth out of this

Some other notes: I tried include suspension and For exhaust I tried Stock, FMF SST Pro Circuit Exhaust with 304 stock with 304 silencer, and with FMF Powercore 2 silencer. The all around exhaust for lap times was the Pro system; it has smooth power and the top end a ton. There was no noticeable between Pro Circuit and FMF silencers than the FMF broke quite a bit

The Ohlins TTX suspension was amazing. The thing I didn’t like it was the TTX clicker, the setting was very and had to be changed from track to to have the right set up. The shock was a bit on hard landings and g-outs but extremely well everywhere and I can’t say there were any where I wasn’t happy how the forks worked.
