    Ktm 250 exc for beginner/intermediate?

    It’s very clean, I was also tossing up between the ktm 250 exc or this 2014 Husqvarna te250r I found the red one looks clean

    Ktm 250 exc for beginner/intermediate?

    Really don’t have the money my budget is 5-6k and all of those are old and beat up
  3. I wouldn’t say im a full beginner now but I deffiently need a new bike my Crf250r is Beating me up something silly every ride on the trails and I’m starting to hate riding because of it. Close ratio/bad top speed/hard suspension/bad lugging etc I’ve always loved 4 strokes but came across a 2011 ktm 250 exc with 700kms on it for $5,500 which I think is reasonable. Are these good bikes? I want something’s I can easily ride all day without it bashing me up

    Where to ride in Macedon?

    All good just checking... There is some tracks on the west side of Macedon town, just have to be careful because allot of the locals also do allot of walking there. They don't mind as long as your not screaming around like a c___t. Just take it easy there, and stay off the mt Macedon walking trail and you'll be fine. Can you tell me where the main parking spots are? No idea where to start from

    Ah dam yes I’m rec reg’d and full licensed
  7. I’m after a really flatish and easy place to ride my MX bike, even somewhere where there is a track in the bush? Which I doubt but who knows. I’ve heard Macedon is very easy? thanks

    Ktm 300 exc or ktm 250 exc-f?

    I’ve seen the mxtv bike, it looks exactly what I’m after but I was put off after it said the suspension had been done I’m only 73kgs and it’s setup for 85kg. But apparently only clickers were changed that was it

    Ktm 300 exc or ktm 250 exc-f?

    Thanks for all the responses guys, pretty sure I’m going to get a wr250f the new model. Was even concidering getting new, the bikes used are only a couple grand less than a new one. I looked at a Husqvarna fe250 but they were to expensive around $12,500 How much did you pay for it ?
  11. I’m looking at buying a proper trail bike after coming from a Crf250r which is painful in the bush. Would I be better off with the 300 2 stroke or the 250 4 stroke? Always like 4 strokes and not sure if the 300 is to much. what do you think? Any particular model I should look at
  12. I’ve noticed my 2010 Crf250r has the left fork seal leaking there’s oil every where. Is this possible to fix myself or would I be better taking it to a dirt bike suspension place? And if I did how much would it cost to replace? thanks
  13. I’m 5’10 and for the woods my crf250r is still to tall for me as I’m kind of tippy toed on it. I thought setting the sag to my weight etc would make a difference but to have the sag set for bike I actually had to tighten it which is strange because the previous owner was much heavier than me. I measured 108mm weighted sag with me on the bike and in the Manuel it suggests 100mm and I didn’t want it any firmer than it already was so I relived it to around 125mm I know you shouldn’t lower the bike with sag but my feet are now much closer to the ground and the suspension feels a lot more forgiving and soft. Yet to ride the bike yet though.  Is this ok or will it be dangerous to ride? I watched a video of someone lowering a bike with this technique and he got hammered for being dangerous. 
  14. I’ve been searching online and can’t seem to find actual genuine Honda parts for my bike, there’s a few parts I need and I want genuine parts. Also are oem the exact same as genuine parts?
