What pipe options are available currently? Full systems or slip-ons?

What cam options are available currently? Any from the dirtbikes, like hotcams etc.?

What about the intake setup - what improvements can be made there?

KTM make 3 different cams, and hotcvams have a profile.

Go over to KTM talk and check out the RFS engine site, all well detailed there.

KTM talk search = cams

general concensus is tha hot cams lose to much low end in small engine, ktms 8/06 performance cam seems to be a popular choice.

both 450 and 525 share a common lower end crank, rod etc, only difference is the cylinder and piston

you can bolt up a KTM 540 big bore kit, your choice of cams, bore the carb, use the JD jet kit, get a decent exhaust and hold on.......

Intake: this is the same filter as the bikes so would be interesting to see if there is a K&N option, flow restriction will be the anti backfire mesh screen in the stock element base, could be trimmed out.

Is the atv motor identical to the bike? So all engine parts, cams, etc. are interchangable? I would be surprised if they had the same flywheel (oz) and internal gearing ratio.

cases are clearly different as are the gear sets due to the reverse, pity a 6 speed EXC box would be nice.

Flywheel, dunno; something lighter would be good. Would be worthwhile contacting trail tech o see / check, they do a -10 oz for the bikes.......

head over to atvriders:
610 dyno
Crank / rod / top ends are supposedly the same as the 2 wheelers.

stock 525 bore is 95mm 98mm = 543 (KTM hard parts kit) 99 = 554 100 = 565

610 is a KTM stroker crank (see ktm hard parts catelogue) plus 101mm big bore
