I need to know what size flywheel weight to put on my 04 Ktm 200exc. Seems like I had an 8 oz on the XCW but it was geared different. Any suggestions and where to get one kinda cheap. Gotta do lots of work to bike piece by piece. ::rollieyes:: Thanks in advance :D

I believe my 250SX had a 9oz on it that helped me from stalling at lower speeds.

Nice seeing you at the shop btw

I have a flywheel weight off my 2007 200 xcw that I really liked. I can't remember the weight but it worked well for woods riding. It won't fit my 2011 so if you want it for $60 shipped it's yours.

Somewhere in the 8 to 10 ounce range should give the benefits you desire for most all conditions.

You just get the bike? If so, I'd try it without and see if you can adapt to the bike.

I put one on my YZ250 to get used to the power of the 2t coming off of a 250f and really liked it because it helped reduce stalling. Once I got used to the power of the 2t I decided to take it off and see how I liked it without the flywheel weight. Needless to say the weight has been sitting in the toolbox for the past year or so and won't be going back on.

HP put mine on for me when we got the bike, and I'm very pleased with it. I don't know what size we did...It's got enough "grunt" to get itself around, and it will lug too...If you're up one from the perfect gear, it is very forgiving with just a bit of clutch. It doesn't mind too much about being one gear low, but it has a bit less patience there.

Now mine is an XC instead of an XCW, so I don't know what difference that makes...

Thanks, it was good seeing you again. You will probably be seeing me a little more often with this bike until I get her how I want her.

Wes I've been riding it the way it is and it really pee-pee me off with all the stalls. Gotta get it ride ready for my riding style which is usually slow speed.. ::smirk:: ::smirk::

So, did you put a FWW in it yet? Did you check the gearing/sprocket sizing to make sure it was not geared higher than what you may be used to on a 200? May be another place to start/check as well. Your past XCW model was the same wide ratio tranny as your '04 EXC, but sprocket sizes can be a variable in how it feels to you. Also, maybe check to see if it still as the OEM aluminum clutch pack in it(only 2 steels in the middle), having an all steel clutch plate pack also seems to give a light FWW effect that you may have had in your past 200, but maybe not this one. Just throwing things out there to consider.

Another option is a G2 throttle cam to help control wheel spin, little more expensive or close to the same as a FWW, but easier to install. I had one on my '03 EXC for a short time while getting used to a 200, loved the G2, but after adapting to it was eager to go back to the stock throttle cam.

Good luck! Hope you get it tweaked to your liking soon.

I'm working on getting fww. Hopefully by next week and already looking at bigger sprockets. This bike doesn't feel like it has the power my 07 had. It keeps bogging down and will not idle especially when its on a hill. May have to bring it to you Michele and see if you can work some kind of magic on it. Haven't ridden much since spa day. I don't want to turn away from it before I can give it a real chance and the knee is acting up again too.

Are you coming out to the Family Fun Ride next weekend? Bring it then and we can check to see where the power valve is set and check the jetting/float as well, then make a adjustments as necessary and try a lap - tweek some more if necessary, try anothe lap, repeat. I will be out there on Saturday and Sunday the weekend of FFR, so that would be great if you want to come out that weekend and we can mess with it.

I have an 04 200 EXC and it's very powerful. If you feel it's down on power something is wrong. I lug mine up all kinds of hills.

Don't give up on it until you get someone to diagnose the problem, when it's running right power or lugging it will NOT be an issue. ::up::

Michele I'm not sure if I will get to go to the FFR. My surgery knee has been giving me problems all last week and this weekend. I think it is causing the other knee to act up now. I will know more later this week. If not maybe one weekend your free.

S.Anderson I'm not giving up on the bike yet. The bike actually sat in someones garage for over two years. I know its gonna take a little bit to get her back into the shape I want.

I have to repair the exhaust pipe, rebuild the forks (leaking). I'm getting a fww, new chain and sprockets , check the jetting and so forth.
