Engine & Exhaust
Cylinder Head: The cylinder head features two overhead camshafts with friction-optimized cam followers boasting a DLC coating and high-flow ports. Four lightweight titanium valves maximize the flow rate for an optimal power band and outstanding performance across the seemingly endless rev range of 13,400 RPM. Lateral brackets made of aluminum allow an efficient fixation of the engine to the frame and contribute to the bikes featherweight feel.
Engine: The engine of the KTM 350 XC-F features a compact and very light (60 lbs) construction. Its DOHC (double overheard camshaft) design with lightweight titanium valves and DLC coated cam followers allows for lively but strong engine characteristics. Fitted with the latest electronic fuel injection system and an E-starter, it has an extremely wide usable speed range, high performance and incredibly efficient rideability. The KTM 350 XC-F engine shares the same layout as the 250 XC-F, resulting in playful handling that is similar to a 250 machine.
Crankshaft: The KTM 350 XC-Fs crankshaft utilizes a short connecting rod, which makes for an overall compact and lightweight engine with a snappy power delivery. A plain big (bottom) end bearing with two force-fitted bearing shells runs directly on the crank pin. The necessary oil feed for this bearing is ensured by the engines pressurized lubrication. This design is a decisive benefit in terms of the crankshaft service interval, which can be lengthened due to the plain bearing. So just pin it, all day long.
Crankcases And Engine Covers: The design of the die-cast crankcases allows for minimal weight and a very centralized shaft configuration. This makes the engine short and compact, while contributing to an efficient centralization of masses. The engine covers also feature a solid surface structure, which reduces the wear caused by the riders boots. This way, your XC-F will keep looking better longer.
Engine Management System: The state-of-the-art Keihin engine management system with electronic fuel injection features a 44 mm throttle body. Thanks to its unique injector position, the engines response is instantaneous. And to make life even easier, separate systems for cold starts and idle adjustment await you. The lightweight control unit features a unique traction and launch control system for lightning-quick response when the gate drops.
Transmission: The engine is fitted with a smooth 6-speed semi-close PANKL transmission made of new and stronger materials. An advanced No Dirt gear shift lever design prevents mud and sand from blocking the joint of the lever and guarantees trouble-free shifting. All 4-stroke engines are fitted with a gear position sensor, giving the option of different engine characteristics for each gear. The transmission shaft features a C4 bearing that has a bigger overlap and guarantees better reliability even at extremely tough operating conditions.
Cylinder And Piston: Inside the short cylinder, with a bore of 88 mm, thumps a box-type piston made by CP. Its crown geometry is adapted perfectly to the high-compression combustion chamber (14.2:1), where its rigid structure and low weight shine. Thanks to the low oscillating masses, the engine is both snappy and strong.
Balancer Shaft: To balance the mass-forces, the KTM 350 XC-F engine uses a multifunctional balancer shaft, which at the same time drives the water pump and timing chain.
