sloopy said:yeah i ran into the same problem on my 1989 ktm 350. it was an awsome bike but the parts were not available anymore. i cracked my pipe and tried to buy a new one and no one offered a replacement especially because it ran on the opposite side as usual. i traded my old ktm in on a new one and it was the best thing i have done. the newer bikes handle alot better, and electric start is better than left foot start. my best advice to you is *bay for parts or new bike.
