Sure! Even on my old steel road bike I just ride around town I switch the brakes around. Bikes in Germany normally have the front brake on the left.

It looks like the right quarter of the left radiator is the oil cooler. Neat!

That's a nice solution! They probably were surprised how much more cooling they get from the new setup compared to the old one. Do you have a picture of the new radiator? One can still see the oil line coming from the oil filter cover:

It seems like Factory Kawi hired somebody that can at least spell the word thermodynamics and finally removed this contraption from their bikes. Seems like they run a fan behind the left radiator now. First one's from Budds last weekend.

How many unnecessary carbon bits do you want on your bike and gear? Yes!

Seriously though, nicely made parts for protection against wear, but how is it supposed to increase the strength of the subframe if it's not glue to it?

If I were HRC, I would want the AMA to cut open Webb‘s Supercross frame, haha

Very cool!! Makes me wonder if they use the 3D-printing for the MXGP-frames too. Heck, the AMA would never know if they would use such a frame in supercross.

Added reply in a thread How to get better at leaning in corners 5/30/2021 3:03 PM

Jepp! Took me a long time to realize how to keep the bike leaned over mid corner. You actively have to turn the bars into the wrong direction if the bike starts to stand up. And of course: forget it if you don’t turn your head and your eyes into the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Will KTM / WP ever give up on trying to reinvent the fork? 5/28/2021 1:27 AM

Ah ok, now I get it. Sure, in a lot of applications the spring is a torsion bar (German tanks e.g.) or a belleville washers (those RedBull carbon fiber ones are cool!) and not a coil. But in all those cases you use the material‘s elasticity to act as ... more »

Added reply in a thread Will KTM / WP ever give up on trying to reinvent the fork? 5/27/2021 3:34 PM

What‘s your point with the F1 suspension? They still use steel springs and not air. I‘m also a fan of the aer forks. The separation of air spring and damping circuit keeps the air spring at a fairly constant temp and therefore spring rate. It‘s very ... more »

You‘ll be fine, just don’t chop the throttle when you‘re coasting over a jump.
