IMO. Evidence is this: 1) MXA, that clearly gets special access to KTM product as they saw the new FE last summer, said something really special is coming for the 2 strokes. It's not DI because the test bikes have petcocks and carb drain lines. 2) We
Added reply in a thread Twisted Engineering handlebars or revalve suspension? 5/1/2015 11:24 AM
I've had all of the above options. I think the stock '13 KX suspension is pretty good honeslty unless your weight is out of range. The Flexxbars are heavy and have lmited movement. The TE bars are great. No armpump or next day soreness at all and my ... more »

BARGAIN. That's a cheap vacation doing the things I enjoy. I'd be all over it as a single guy, but frankly the women would be a major draw for me cause I can ride dirt bikes right here and be home for lunch. So as a married dude, I wouldn't be in to ... more »

I really like Marvin and I think most of us would be proud to call him one of our own. But the dude is French and so should proudly race for the French MXdN team, obviously.

Yah, a bunch or Aryan looking dudes saying "White Power" isn't really PC any longer which is why the company name was changed to just simply "WP". I don't think the newest WP forks are bad. That said, I'll likely wait until the next generation of air ... more »

Did they "steal" democracy before or after they militarily assisted the American Colonies in breaking free from the British Monarch rule? Or was it after they gifted us "Lady Liberty", both figuratively and literally? The maternal side of my family is ... more »
Added reply in a thread KTM is bringing back the 2 stroke big bore for 2016 4/26/2015 6:42 AM
My 314CC KTM runs very well. Not too differently than a 450F. But I want a new bike that stock (on pump gas) runs that way.

I have done 100Ks of miles of dragging knees on the street. I ride very aggresively to stay out of harms way and I can say I've never felt like I was even close to being in danger with a car. Streetriding at speed is like taking an advanced Calculus ... more »

I was impressed by RV2's riding today. But he was overriding the bike, spending too much time going sideways out of the turns with the bike oversteering on throttle. At times the 350 of AC222 pulled him notably as RV2 just lost too much momentum. Better ... more »

The Ktm300 has this legendary status around here but I've been riding them for 6 years now and they are not all that. They don't rev right and they aren't all that fast. I have a fully built 314CC KTM now and it runs like a strong 450 (dyno verified) ... more »

The idea is to build a 450F competitor. The 293cc KTM isn't really close. For one it's 8hp down and had a comparatively narrow powerband. A softly tuned 360-425cc 2 stroke fits the bill.

I've seen aluminum pegs break, won't run 'em. I can't tell any diffrence when I spend the extra money for Ti pegs and they wear down after about 2 years. Last time I bought the inexpensive wide style IMS pegs for like $89 and I couldn't be happier.
