Probs with carburator
I'm having problems with my '2000 Adventure carburator.
It has 45.000 km and it started to "burn" bad! I've opened the carburator and the needle as well as the "throtle ..." (the piece where the needle runs in ) were bad treated.
I've requested both pieces to KTM. The needle arrived in less than one week but i'm waiting for the other piece for more than 1 month. (Mikuni has none in stock!!)
I've mounted the new needle, and it is working less bad...even though it's not perfect. This is caused probably because of the vibration.
Where can i find this piece? Mikuni only sells these carburators (BST 40) to brands (KTM, SUZUKI, YAMAHA, APRILLIA, etc).

ask www.ktm-sommer.de

It's the biggest KTM dealer in Europe.

They speak english.

I'm sure it works better with a new needle and needlejet.
Since the use off unleaded fuel, you have to replace it so now and then. (15000 km)
