    Ktm 300 starter wet mod

    Post by simon on Tue Jun 23, 2015 9:07 pm

    Has anyone on here done the wet mod (add a breather, stick some oil in) to their 2 stroke ktm starter. The main question is does it work or should I stick to using grease on the gears.
    I looked on forums where some say its great, then others say its done nothing to help prolong the life of the bits inside scratch

    Prolonged my 11 didn't touch it until 175 hrs and then it was only change bushes but my 14 fucked the bendix after 70hrs I'd Defford put the breather pipe in and seal the drain hole even if you don't put oil in.....I only drop the bendix in oil before fitting anyway rather than add oil
