2006 KTM 250 SX-F from Australia

An Rocketship

Subframe cracked to a hefty fall mind

Cam chain tensioner ineffective the bike is warmed (this is a fault, though rarely a issue).

General Comments:

this has been an excellent

In regards to the problems listed only the timing chain is a manufacturer fault. This is a problem; basically it is the hydraulic and the in it leak, meaning that you can the timing chain slap and until oil pressure builds up. case, this has been to result in the chain skipping a cog on the gears, destroying your top

However if the bike is allowed to up, IE not redlined instantly after I have never encountered/heard of an A replacement is available from and claims to fix the issue; it’s I just haven’t gotten to purchasing it yet.

This is a race bike, and the is relatively light duty to save weight. That’s but if you (or a mate. ) stack it trying to do a and cartwheel the bike, there is a chance you’ll bend/crack the At $580 from the dealer, not but a far site cheaper than my Honda CRF250 subframe at

The Chrome-Moly frame on the other is excellent, providing good and feel for a well handling while maintaining incredible Also being stronger Aluminium alloy means is less of it, making the bike to work on as there is less in the way. Personally I used to a grudge against steel thinking them old tech, but KTM are definitely a winner in my book.

I have also found dealer parts for my KTM are the same or than those of my mates bikes (read Yamaha and I know it’s not what you hear, I’m just it how I’ve found it. Also I in Perth, Western Australia, and we a KTM warehouse, meaning I can get any parts a day. bonus!

Motor has flawless, really torquey and to rev. Was ported and polished, rebuilt with a Wiseco piston as I bought it, I’ve a Akrapovich exhaust and re-jetted to since. It goes hard, since adding the pipe, it some bottom end grunt and top end power.

The gearbox is a revelation! 6 speeds, and a smooth and effortless shift to same year YZ250F and Hydraulic clutch is also really cuts down on arm and it’s been nothing but

Allows me to ride harder for

Brakes. Nothing ‘wrong’ them, they pull up and cop a beating without fading But they are very ‘spongy’.

master went a few weeks so I rebuilt it ($104 kit from still a little spongy as I to bleed it some more. it went though, it was solid as a Front brake is spongy no how many times I bleed it, I that’s as it is on the handlebars (higher the caliper), the air is floating its way up and remaining in the master cylinder, creating the feel.

All the reviews say this model has brakes in class, so I figure just an issue with my mate’s YZ brakes are much confidence inspiring though.

problems I’ve had, been related to seized/stuck Needless to say I’m an expert easy outs and helicoils I think the previous owner was a bit zealous with a breaker some bolts were seized in place, and I’ve had to them out. Others snapped heads off when I to remove them.

I have been told KTM more fastener related than other manufacturers, but I do not place the blame with Do the bolts to factory torque and you’ll be fine. Also, DO NOT Aluminium bolts with units; many of the threads on my are tapped directly into the block, and WILL strip if you a steel bolt, the steel harder than the alloy.

In a great bike. To be honest, if you an MX bike, all the reputable manufacturers a good dirtbike post I have ridden most, and them all, but the Kato is my not to mention something a little without the expensive allure of or Husaberg.

Would you buy another motorcycle this manufacturer? Yes
