I was kind of in the same boat with my 380. Did not know much about them until I got mine. I gotta say I love it. Great bike, awesome power, pretty good legs, light weight, yada yada. All the same stuff I'm sure you like about yours. A guy I know used to own a 360. Has a 300 now. Said the 360 was a little too much for him (He is very fast but he is also getting on in years -- YMMV).
Ford gave me several pointers when I got mine:
- replace the aluminum wheel spacers front and rear with steel sleeve or pure steel versions to keep the seals working. The stockers will let dirty seals dig trenches in them that ruin the seals.
- my 380 has some jetting issues at low throttle settings. This is pretty common. I had to go to a bigger cutaway slide to really clean it up.
- Watch the kickstarter bolt. Tighten it too much and you may snap it trying to get it out. Too little and you may lose the starter on the trail. I replaced the socket cap with a hex head and safety wired it.
- the subframe bolts like to back out. locktite them.
There were others but I don't remember off the top of my head. Review the new bike to me ktm 380sx
thread and it shows my bike being checked out.
You have pics/video of yours? I would be very interested in seeing more!
I have myself a 1996 Ktm 360 mxc/Sx. I have only found this bike in the 96' and 97' model years. I have done much research, even ordered 96 and 97 issues of dirt rider and dirtbike magazines trying to obtain info on the bike. Im pretty sure the 360cc was only available the 2yrs, and all the specs I have. My question is has anyone else owned one of these neat bikes. If so, do you have any feedback? Like why did they only make it for two years? Because they came out with the 380? I don't know, but would like to. Any info would be great.
