How To: Setup your 2009 KTM 450 SX-F

By: Dan Truman

Some real advice; the 2009 KTM 450SX-F off the showroom floor as a powerhouse Here are some very tips in getting your fast KTM running like the equipment.

1. Forks: The stock KTM forks were acceptable spring rate and adequate but we switched to Showa works (can you blame us?) and had Pro valve them to our specs.

2. Shock: On the stock WP shock we the stock 7.2 kg/mm spring a 7.6 kg/mm spring. This was a big for riders above 175 pounds. We tested an Ohlins TTX-44 (very good) and a Showa shock (both with 7.5

In the end, we elected to have revalve our WP shock. This was the setup.

3. Gearing: testers added one tooth on the (14/53). This was a good for everyone above Novice. is one uniquely different gearing some test riders to gear the KTM taller (14/51).

Why? Gearing it taller the need to shift. It made gear feel like and third like fourth. It made the KTM into a two-speed

4. Subframe: We cut our subframe struts by 4mm to the rear of the bike by 15mm. test riders felt the KTM was too tall.

5. Seat: We cut the seat down by one inch, but KTM offers an low seat if your don’t like doing the work This made the bike but a lot more uncomfortable.

6. Carburetor: We added an RD Powerbowl2 and an RD to gain not only an adjustable screw, but an adjustable leak jet 450SXF does not come a leak jet).


Pilot: 40

Needle: OBDTP

position: 4th from top

Fuel 1-3/4 turns (1-1/2 stock)

Accelerator pump adjustment exactly 1 turn out from with the pump cam

7. Exhaust DR.D’s KTM pipe tucks out of the way and enhances the overall powerband (we had to it to fit on our cut-down subframe).

8. Air We originally ran Twin Air’s GP air kit with its aluminum cage, but had and return to the stock cage a normal Twin Air filter.

9. Plastic: We cut the rear fender/side to make the bike easier to up and replaced the stock radiator with Cycra Powerflow shrouds.

10: Miscellaneous: It is to save several pounds by to a lightweight battery (from Shorai or Super B). We clipped the gas cap tabs off and added a TM Designworks guide, and STR rear cooler.
