It can actually open a beer since the KTM OEM tool kit comes with a beer opener!

Shut the front door. It really is perfect. Times like this make me wonder what I've been doing with my life this whole time.

Missing that tool kit makes me want to buy a 2013...it has nothing to do with having electric start.

Actually, today I received a KTM trailer hitch cover. In my 15 years of owning trucks with receiver hitches, they have only housed a ball. I've become KTM obsessed this week.

The Husaberg came with a bottle opener also. I spent two days trying to figure out what part of the bike it fit. I thought it was a knobby popper, I just didn't know why knobbies needed popping.

I ordered from the link posted below for $79.99. Since I got the KTM, Surdyke Yamaha has become my online KTM dealer with free shipping on anything over $25 and their prices are low to standard.

Thanks for keeping me researching SKF. Now I need to decide if I want to change the oil in the cartridge.

Is the bottom end of the 144/150/200 the same and the bore/piston different? Are you swapping the complete motor?

Thanks for answering all my noob KTM questions.

if you are doing a "full" 200 conversion (from a 125/144/150) you need a cylinder head and piston, 200 PV timing mechanism, 200 crank, 36mm carb, and 200 CDI unit.

It "will work" with just a 200 cylinder and piston. You "can" keep the 38mm carb, 144 CDI, and 144 PV timer, but from all the reading and questions I asked on KTM talk, most had the opinion that I would be happier converting all of it.

But yes, I'm doing a complete motor swap because I found a complete motor on KTMtalk that was for sale.

Awesome!

I have to ask, what is the relationship with Maine Root and KTM? I see a lot of people with the logo on their bikes.

My good friend Matthew Seiler is the founder/owner/CEO of Maine Root. We rock his logo to help him advertise. He subsidizes a portion of our graphics kit. He also is the one who hooked us up with some sponsors as well (like Klim).

There are 7 of us that race for "Team Maine Root."
