KTM 500 MX Review from United States of America
1989 KTM 500 MX
Stock Delorto carb would flood the entire engine.
Replaced with Keihin pwk 39.. much better.
Base gasket blew out after 4 years.
Parts are expensive, complete engine rebuild was $1,400 with labor.
Excellent bike. Top ends last 5-10 years or 500 hours.
The power is as smooth and linear as you could ask for.
Much better power delivery than a CR500 or KX500.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
