  1. Just bought a 2010 ktm 150sx, fouled a plug. I called a ktm dealer close to me and oem spark plugs are $20. I went to Canadian tire. They had plug for the bike but it wasn't BR9 EcmIX. My question is, does it matter what spark plug you run? The picture is the one that was at Canadian Tire. It was 2 spark plugs for $11
  2. I also put the bike on the side to empty the carb with gas. Should I just take the plug out, kick with it out, then put the new plug in. I'm pretty sure the bike was flooded, I was kicking it all day.
  3. Is this hard? Do I need to take the carb right off the might or no?
  4. Yeah I know, it's snowing right now at my cottage so I just wanted to ride it around once. Regret it now
  5. How would I clean the needle jet?
  6. Hi I just bought at 2010 ktm 150sx 3 days ago. I am new to 2 strokes, before I had a ttr125 which had little to no maintenance. When I bought it, bike was running mint. Started first or second kick and ran really good. I was riding slow and revving up the engine in my backyard and I went to try to start it the next morning and it didn't start. Checked the spark plug and it was wet. I cleaned it with a towel and a wire brush. The first kick it would start right up but bog and died in ten seconds. Tried kicking, didn't start. Took the plug out and it was wet again. I did this many times and it was still wet. I'm buying a new spark plug tomorrow, I just don't want to spend 20$ and it gets wet the first kick. Please let me know suggestions what to do. Im new to this

  8. Just looked at it. Beautiful shape. Started it up, exhaust was cold started up first kick. He said he took it to a mechanic we can go ask him everything he maintained the bike. He said they did the gaskets. My dad wants to get it. I loved it, comes with manual, original tool, had ufo bark busters.
  9. I live in Ontario, Toronto, but I'm looking at bikes out of Toronto too. I've been looking at yz125s too. Also I really want to do mx this year but I'm gunna ride trails for sure. I'm not the one spending money but my dad is buying the bike for me his budget is around 4k I'm getting a job soon so if I got to spend $200 to $400 I will.
  10. How much do you think I should offer?
  11. I think it's just my area (Canada). Here's another bike I was looking at but the guy lives 3 hours away from me and he's asking 4800 for a 2012 ktm 150sx and he said he would take 4600 minimum. So I don't really know
  12. Me and my dad are going and my dad isn't a mechanic so he won't really know what to look for. I have no one to bring with me, the people I can live far away from me so should I just go? I want to be a mechanical person, I have that personality your saying a bit. never really had the opportunity to work on any motorized thing yet Here is another picture of the chain area
  13. I'll take some pictures when I go see it for there to be a better look of the bike
  14. I'm looking at different ads and for a 2016 in Canada is about 8 to 9k, even 2012s are around 5k. I wonder if it's people pricing them really high or just where I live.
  15. I live in Canada, I don't know if that makes a difference for price but I've been looking around for ktm 150s and there all around or even way more expensive with this.
