Founded in 1934 by Hans Trunkenpolz in Mattighofen, by 1937 he was selling DKW motorcycles. When the war ended, his thoughts once more returned to motorcycles and by 1953 he had produced his first machine - the Moser KTM 100 - utilising a 98cc Sachs engine.
Models which followed included the Mecky moped (1957), the Tarzan, the Pony II and the Comet. A scooter was introduced in 1958, the Mirabell.
In 1965 the firm entered the burgeoning motocross market and have done rather well. They won the grueling Dakar race for 15 consecutive years, 2001 to 2015.
KTM R 125 Tarzan was the factory's first sports production motorcycle. A development of the Grand Tourist, the red, black and silver machine was released in 1957.
KTM models include:

Petrol cap, seat cover, side panel screws and footrest rubbers (with KTM logo). Can it tell the year from the frame/ engine numbers?
Hi, I'm not sure as I have no documents. They went on to front disc brakes
in the late 1970's and liquid cooling. As this has a front drum brake but the
later engine and front down tubes I guess about 1977.

ktm moped spares wanted and exchanged
ktm 50 rs sports moped 1975
I have recently purchased 3 sports mopeds. They are a ktm comet 50 rs, comet cross, and gt 50. I am breaking the gt 50 and have spares available however i need to trace and purchase/exchange parts for the 50 rs mag wheel model. I need the instrument plastic surround and the tachometer and speedo and front headlamp. if you have these parts spare please contact me with information. If you know any contacts or spares that are available then please contact me at my email address
Thanks for replying so promptly. I have a picture of the KTM 50 RS that I need the headlamp, Plastic instrument surround and speedo and rev counter. I will take delivery of the bikes in two weeks but want to source the spares as quickly as possible. KTM produced a number of bikes like this,different to the UK market, and sold them in europe. The parts used and are mainly generic so other bikes that have never been sold in this country have these spares.

What make of motorcycle is it please Warren?
Sorry, I thought I was on a KTM site,it's a KTM 50 Mini Adventure 2006 ,he races motocross on it. Now he's having trouble taking off at the start gates and some of the tight corners as mentioned in my first email.
It sounds as if it may be flooding - have you dropped the float bowl off and checked for crud in the bowl, and also in the float needle area?
Also, try the dealer directory at KTM Australia:

It may be to soon to judge the reliability of the Adventure , however is there anyone out their who could alay my fears re the above points . I really do fancy the Adventure 990, but worry about the above points compared to Japanese or European manufacturers.

KTM Pulser Coil
KTM 2005 EXC 300
I broke my leg in Feb 2006 this year. My bike had no damage and one of my friends rode the bike back to my house for me and it was running well with no problems.
My bike was then stored for the past 6 months correctly according to the workshop manual.
Now the pulser coil is faulty (should be 100ohm resistance but it is now open circuit).
Can I buy the pulser coil by itself direct from the manufacture without buying the complete stator coil which is very expensive.
I also need an email address of someone at KTM head office I can speak to about this problem, why has the pulser coil broken when the bike was stored for 6 months. It was running fine before it was stored, but now there's no spark.

i need help over a ktm i saved from a junkyard. openning the engine; i think only the cylinder wall is damaged by the fragmented piston w/c is about 95mmDia. the flywheel,i mean the rotating part which creates the electricity, needs to be changed. looking at webPictures i think this is a 540cc exc; the rear brake & sprocket on the wheel are oriented oppposite those on standard dirtbikes. i'd need lots of other parts but i hope to one-day see this bike run. can i rebore the cylinder, given that the tear depth is a coupla mm max?
i have the chassis, carb, forks, shocks, wheels, a small red electrical which i think is d CDi,.. no swingArm; but i can get a normally oriented one. no bolts for the engine & rearWheel. is there a manual i can buy for this bike? ThanksaLoad.
No, you cannot rebore the barrel. By the sounds of things this bike is too far gone for a cost-effective restoration. Ed.

My water is leaking into the crankcase slowly. It must have overheated once when it blew a radiator line. This problem just started and i am not sure what to check. I have the mechanical ability to fix this yet i do not want to tear into this beautiful motor. How far do I tear it down and how much trouble is it? What book do you reccomend I use to accomplish this feat? Could this be a gasket? If so how do I tell? Any help is at all would be great. Thank you
Haynes do a manual for the LC4 which will give you all the information you need to replace your head gasket, which is probably the problem. http://www.haynes.co.uk/. Ed.
