You aren’t wrong. All the gear and no idea.
Chop tested the spark plug to make sure it’s jetted well, so many accidental wheelies. Holding it wide in 4th is bloody scary.
Almost died.
Jettings fine though so that’s good I guess
The power curve on those new 2strokes are pretty good. The EFI ones are even better but almost feel a bit dull.. I have a Kx250 that goes from nothing to 60HP in about 500rpm as it tries to rip your arms from their sockets. Good times.

Hurts. Requires Money. And is nerdy.

Yeah I changed the power valve spring back to the stock one after that and it’s smoothed it out nicely.
It’s definitely no 250 MX bike.

To be honest it surprised me with how easy it is to ride, much nicer than my old 525exc and 125sx.

The New ones are great but stretch the budget a little too much. Not to mention this was an impulse buy.
No premix and you don’t have to play around with jetting? Brilliant.

So, never ride someone else's bike you aren’t prepared to buy.
This absolute unit is now mine, white KTM TE300, 60hrs run time. Very silly, I love it.

Does anyone have an experience with mousse tubes? I’ve only ever had tubes and tubeless on bikes, this thing has a mousse up front and I’m unsure what to look for regarding it’s condition and whether it needs replacing or not.
Bike sat around garaged since 2018, so cleaned the carb and whacked some fresh fuel in. Ran a little rough sunday, much better now.
DO NOT hold jet needles in your mouth while cleaning, it kinda burns the lips. I will never do that again.View attachment 375617
Nice one. Did husky just do the styling?

What have you done to that? I imagine they are about 40hp stock, 10 is doable, 20 is lots...

Slight thread hijack, but I figure the petrolheads on here should be a good source. After a drivers side wing mirror for a 2014 Mitsu Outlander as the missus had an argument with the garage door. Have looked on evilbay which has one option, anyone know some good wreckers to hit up?

Maybe try to find a suitable Mitsi page on Facebook. They’ve usually got a source for spare parts. I’m in one for Pajero Sport. Surely there’s one for the Outlander.

There are a few wrecking on scumtree, most cars older than a few years get crushed pretty fast these days, hardly anything is interchangeable between models.
