Not yet! I might try riding for the forst time in over 6 months just tomorrow. Regarding the ATAC engines: no, i haven't ridden one yet. I am just now finishing another 89 which i bought as a spare bike for the vintage races i'll do. I hope to have it

Believe me - your 125 might weigh even more that 203 lbs! I weighed several 125s and it takes quite a bit of searching for lighter parts and extensive weight savings to get them sub 200 lbs...only the 2016 KTM is sub 200 stock.

Same bike today: Still the same bike as used in last years italian vintage championships (campionato d'epoca). This particular race was held in Montevarchi, a former GP track: ... more »

Well - when you ding rims you definitely would have flattened with MX tubes as well...time to raise some psi instead

Well - i don't know how you ride or what terrain your ride in...but i personally don't compare myself with the best Pros running a SX track with as low as possible pressure to get the best grip..... As mentioned already - on a MX track we get flats by

Yup - me too i came back to motoX after 10 years mostly on bicycles. But i gained a lot of experience in saving weight all

Anyway - what i don't understand now is that you agree on the better feel/grip by using a thinner tube. But you ... more »

Nono-the valve is no problem at all. It might look weird but they are just a bit inconvenient as they require a bicycle pump to inflate. Other than that no big deal. But these Maxxis seem a viable alternative. Just 50g heavier but definitely still a

I'd suggest you try the Pirelli MX32 Mid-Soft front&rear. I'd also pair them with some lightweight tubes. The tracks i rode in 2012 during my MX vacation (Starwest,Milestone,Pala,Lake Elsinore) did not have a single rock so i'd say for southern California

As i mentioned before i find the Pirelli mid-soft to be much more planted. The knobs on the front Dunlop MX32 seem to fold under heavy load which makes for a vague feel. The Pirelli MX32 Mid-soft is still a great performer if the track dries out and

Cool - that's a impressive weight! Way underweight as well - the weight limit for 250cc is 212 lbs.

The graphics will regain well over 1 lbs later on Regarding the tires: you would have to try them out to find out if you like them ... more »

I actually don't like the Dunlop 32s all that much: the front has too tall and soft knobs that tend to fold under heavy load (hard braking or cornering ) and rip off rather easily. The rear is no better than the Pirelli MX32 but just that much heavier.

Good read, interesting build! Obviously i like the focus on saving weight as this is what i've been doing on my CR 125 AF as well. I was able to save over 8 kilos (18 lbs) on my 125...and get it down to just 87,5 kilos / 193 lbs. And i have some other

No Mx for at least another couple of months for me. I shattered my wrist and it takes really long to heal. Speaking of Wohlen/CH: This was the start last year using her CR 144 AF in the mixed field together with the boys

If you ship from Germany it doesn't cost all that much. From Switzerland it would cost way too much and get you in trouble with customs as well

But anyway - having suspension that works this good at much lower cost than what you pay in Switzerland ... more »

Well - we are in Switzerland which is just up north of Italy. We either go visit his shop when we are in Italy for some riding (which many swiss riders do on a regular basis anyway) or we send the suspensions over there. No big deal.

It's not my bike. On my own AF with Mugen engine i was saving weight to the max to get it even under the lower weight limit of 88 kilos / 194lbs. This bike actually weighs a little more than a stock KTM, mostly due to the regular spring forks and the ... more »
