Hey,

i got a KTM 125 sx, and need a solution with a problem.

it seems not to get enough air.

this is whats happening:
When the bike is Idling and i give FULL gas it seems to die out for less then a second before the RPM goes up normally. This does not happen if i have a little bit gas and do the same, then it acts normally. I can give half gas fast and it acts normal, but not with FULL gas.

Have changed to a new Airfilter. (Twin Air)

I tried to take off the Airfilter and do the same, then its responding as it should ... It dont get enough air :(

What to do about this problem? any easy thing to do?

Thx for all answers. :)

oh, do you oil your filter? filter without oil could do something like that...

go to your local motorcycle shop and buy some foam filter oil. it will have directions on it on how to properly oil your filter. believe me its worth it to buy the good stuff.
