Just picked up my new bike. love it for the hr I rode it down turnrows.

What difference should I expect from the red spring? Does out on the gold screw make the engine more harsh or softer? Will it harm the motor over the long haul and do I need it for woods riding?
Any other must do's for the new bike, i got pro bends and skid plate put on.

thanks for any information!!

Picked up my 2 weeks ago.

1. Put on carbonfiber pipe guard.
2. Hand guards.
3. Ktm plastic skid plate.
4. Slavens linkage skid. (xc only)

5. FMF turbo core Q spark arestor ( not on yet)
6. KTm rear rotor fin.

Will add grip heaters soon and thinking of a auto clutch. Had a auto clutch on my 450, enjoyed it but now I'm enjoying the clutch again. But the auto clutch was sooooo nice at the end of a 2 hour race.

Fix the starter issues now before you smoke the brushes in the starter motor and order a motion pro longer throttle cable with the captured ends. Sorry I don't have the part number off hand. Take every electrical connector apart and put dielectric grease in the contacts. I would silicone the back side of all the connectors also. Pull the swingarm off and add grease as well as the steering head bearings. I wouldn't bother with a pipe guard. With the stock tinfoil pipe you will kink the head pipe sooner rather than later with a guard on. It won't harm the motor to run it with the screw out and the red spring. It just changes the timing of the powervalve. I am sure there are more issues that I am not thinking of right now.

experiment with the red spring and dolly screw position as the spring changes and screw adjustment make very noticeable differences. you will be amazed at how different the power delivery is between the green spring and dolly in all the way to the red spring and dolly out.
