    2012-up KTM 250/300 XC


    I'm looking for a 2012 or newer, non-TPI, non counterbalanced 250 / 300, XC, with a linkage swingarm. Does not need to be cherry, depending on what's wrong it doesn't necessarily need to run. Looking for cheap.

    Does this... does this mean... a 500 is in your future?

    There's a 2012 300SX in Whitefield for $2,800obo.. SX though. 250 with a 300 head I think. Still, not a terrible price.

    That 300 is sweet, and not quite ideal for my desired shenanigans. That SX sounds good, but it'd run out of speed WAY too early just due to the transmission.

    What are you trying to keep your budget at for the initial bike purchase?

    You can add 5th and 6th gears to the transmission for short money, I’ve done it once on a 450sx and it was about $300 for all KTM parts.

    IIRC, the 5 speed box on the smokers uses wider gears, so it's not a case of spots on the shafts being unpopulated and swapping shift drums?

    Edit - Target price? Cheap as possible. Given how much will be stripped off / replaced / not used in the final setup is why I'm not insisting on a mint bike either.

    I should have clarified, but it was quite a few years ago when I did this to my 450sx.
    I also had to replace 1st and 2nd gears when I added 5th and 6th, so the end result was the wide ratio gear box, at the time 3rd and 4th gears were the same ratio on both the wide ratio and close ratio.

    That machine has too many valves, and doesn't like running premix... (250 thumper rather than two stroke) It's a well setup machine though if anyone's looking for a sumo for anywhere other than LRRS.

    I have a 17 KTM 250 XC-W with Factory Connection suspension on it set up for 205lbs rider. The bike has been babied with less than 20 hours on it. Is this something that interests you? I hardly ride the thing and honestly would rather it go to someone that rides rather than collect dust. Give me a PM if you want to talk $'s.

    Unfortunately unless I'm mistaken your machine has the new counterbalanced motor, my dreams hinge on the prior generation mill.

    I really want a TPI. I hate messing with jets. I love the 2t for ease of use but jetting is like the stick shift of dirt bikes. Give me DCT or PDK and I'm happy.

    Traction control would get bored and abandon me given how I ride off road.

    So, I'm not as up to speed on the white and blue branded KTMs... what year / model Huskys are equivalent to the Smoker XC from Camp Orange?
