Thanks to a history of competition successes, particularly in off-road racing, KTM motorcycles enjoy a large and loyal following. Established in 1953, KTM (from Kraftfahrzeuge Trunkenpolz Mattighofen where founder, Hans Trunkenpolz, had his engineering works) went through difficult times in the early 1990s. After a takeover, the Austrian company emerged as KTM Sportmotorcycle AG and has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Mainstay of their range are their Enduro and Motocross models, the EXC and SX, and these are covered in the latest new manual from Haynes. Models covered are the 250, 400, 450, 520 and 525 EXC and SX with 4-stroke sohc engines, 2000 to 2007. Information has also been included on the SMR Supermoto versions and MXC/XC derivatives. Haynes Manuals for cars and motorcycles are so popular that 150 million have been sold worldwide. Lay them end-to-end and they would circle the globe at the equator! The new manual begins with essential pre-ride checks, competition prep and routine maintenance tasks before moving on to more major repairs. There are comprehensive, fully illustrated, instructions for overhauling the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension and electrical system. Useful reference pages include colour wiring diagrams, fault-finding charts and a comprehensive section on tools and workshop tips. Because all Haynes Manuals are based on a complete stripdown and rebuild, not only are the procedures written from first-hand experience, but there is information about special tools required for each job, and its complexity, plus Haynes tips for saving time and money. The new Haynes KTM EXC Enduro & SX Motocross Manual is the only complete manual for owners of these motorcycles.
