250 XCF‑W USA: IMPROVED PERFORMANCEBack to Bikes Next Benefit
The redesigned airbox on the KTM 250 XCF?W model year 2013 allows maximum air to pass through, but minimal dust and spray. Replacement of the Twin-Air filter takes approx. 15 seconds, without any tools. Absolutely "Ready to Race".
Alongside the very small, lightweight (only 8 g (0.28 oz)) cam followers with DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating, the DOHC cylinder head is equipped with four ultra-light titanium valves, allowing very high engine speeds of up to 12,000 rpm. Compared with the SX-F power unit, the camshafts are designed less for maximum power and more enduro-specific for a broad usable rev range.
TRANSPARENT PLASTIC FUEL TANK
The fuel level can be seen directly from the outside on the 9.5 L (2.51 Gal.), transparent plastic tank. A micro-filter in the fuel line keeps even the smallest of particles away from the injection nozzle and now sits in the fuel line's quick-release coupling between tank and injection valve. Therefore, replacing it is child's play. 13 L fuel tanks are available for all models from the PowerParts range. The tried and tested bayonet filler cap - including safety mechanism to prevent unintentional twisting - allows the fuel tank to be opened and closed quickly with only a quarter turn.
