Ouch. Best of luck with it!

I'd try Jason at JK Racing (based in Essex) as he has a lot of spares for those bikes and can probably source whatever you need.

Added reply in a thread What’s THE Most Expensive Aftermarket Part You Bought For Your Bike ? Did It Help ? 3/22/2021 5:07 AM

I have lost count of the money I have spent on factory suspension, unnecessary carbon fibre, titanium and magnesium castings. It's my vice and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Maybe time for Jordon Smith to pack his bags and come to Europe and try a fresh start in the MX2 class before he destroys his body any further (or worse) in supercross. Didn't do Zach Osborne any harm.

Added reply in a thread Webb running Roczen wide at Daytona... 3/7/2021 3:44 AM

Nothing wrong with that move, he ran him wide and didn’t clean him out. But... I am getting very frustrated on Roczen’s behalf - he keeps coming off second best in these scenarios and seemingly lets it happen time and time again. Crying on the podium ... more »

I own both. Only think the YZ beats the KTM with is the suspension out of the box.

Same here. In the US (I lived in Manhattan 2015-19), I used Maxima 927, but my staple in the UK is Castrol A747. Just be sure to give it a good shake if stored as it can separate if sat mixed for a while. As for transmission oil, I use ATF and change ... more »

I have a tonne of parts for those if you're anywhere near Bristol.

Last years project: a 2014 CRF450X with smashed engine cases after the kickstart cracked and took out the inner case. Absolute junk design. Rebuilt the engine (and the rest of this nail) and the profit from its sale was quickly reinvested in a new driveway

It’s a Yamaha this year for me. A 2017 YZ250 two stroke that was too cheap to pass on (£2.6k or $3.5k). Mechanically it’s superb with a main dealer receipt for £1200 in parts (OEM cylinder, crank etc) but cosmetically it needs the neglect polishing out

It certainly is. I am racing the modern 2-stroke class at this shortly, and for those who don’t know the other classes over here, Evo is 1980-1989 and Super Evo is 1990-1999 (or might be 1997), but basically no four strokes or aluminum frames. They are

Added reply in a thread KTM SXS brake calipers ? 8/13/2020 3:40 AM

I have them on a couple of bikes. For what it's worth, the standard KTM brakes are excellent, so if yours are squishy a seal may have failed and you have air in the lines somehow. The SXS/billet factory calipers are honestly a bit unnecessary, but I ... more »

Added reply in a thread ISO Ktm Xtrig preload adjuster 6/16/2020 3:33 AM

When you get it, make sure you keep it clean and give it a blast with WD40 after washing. Those things are great, but notorious for seizing solid - I have had to have one cut off in the past on a used Trax shock I bought. Nightmare.

Added reply in a thread The Best Bike you have owned 2 or 4 Strokes (or both) through the years 4/4/2020 7:05 PM

Best 4 stroke = 2012 CRF450R with mods (clutch and ignition) Best 2 stroke = any KTM 250sx (had a whole bunch of them through the years)
