The 2019 XC bike engines have been raised slightly in the chassis, which supposedly increases front end traction. The engine hangers on the two-strokes are now aluminum instead of last year’s steel units—a change that’s said to increase handling while lessening vibration. The two-stroke mills also get new carb settings that are said to bolster throttle response. New machined exhaust ports give the XC’s better power delivery compared to 2018’s models, and the water pump casing has been revised to improve coolant flow.The exhaust system on the 250 and 300 XC’s get new headers for 2019 that offer better clearance and reportedly are designed to better withstand damage in the event of a crash. KTM says the new header pipes also allow the engine to rev a bit higher, and that the mufflers—which are now fixed to the bike via aluminum brackets instead of heavier, weaker plastic pieces—were redesigned for improved power delivery.

For 2019 KTM has added what it calls the “Flow Design Header”, a chamber surrounding the pipe that allows the exhaust to be more tapered in certain areas while also boasting better overall engine performance in a quieter package. The four-stroke range’s mufflers—which are now longer—are adorned in a new aluminum sleeve profile, new end cap, and boast a revised internal design. The bikes’ ECUs have new maps that are more compatible with the updated exhausts and cylinder heads, and supposedly provide better traction control.Another noteworthy feature on the 2019 XC-F lineup is the addition of the Keihin Engine Management System that features new 44mm throttle bodies and new seals for the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) systems which improve reliability. The machines’ reliability has also been turned up a notch thanks to the addition of new lithium-ion starter batteries which fire the bike up faster and more reliably in cold conditions. The voltage regulator and condenser’s packaging were revised to further improve reliability as well.The specific models also get a few unique changes. The 2019 250 XC-F gets a new diaphragm steel clutch and Pankl Racing Systems transmission that utilizes last year’s gear ratios and a new exhaust camshaft was also added to improve the power delivery. The 2019 450 XC-F gets a newly designed cylinder head—which has newly shaped ports, new camshaft, and new, shorter valve timing designed to increase responsiveness—that’s more than half-an-inch lower and a full pound lighter than 2018’s model. Lastly on the 450; the cam chain guides are now made of a lower friction material. The 350 XC-F also boasts a revised cylinder head design that weighs almost half-a-pound less than 2018’s unit. Like the 250, the 350 also gets the new diaphragm steel clutch and Pankl Racing Systems transmission.Source: Dirt Rider
