I am sure you know this, but make sure to get the fork/ shock settings back to factory or something close. A couple of clicks can really change things. I have a 17' and am happy with the AER forks, but I bought the bike with the forks close to flush ... more »

It looks great! congrats! Parting comment: Don't be afraid to adjust the forks higher/ lower in the triples to get the steering where you want it! and yes, I will never have to kick start a modern bike again!

One person. Another con to this type of carrier. It goes on, on the right and off on the left. If parking is tight you need to manage space around you. At the days end I have backed up to make room. No big deal, just a consideration.

I use this Black Widow carrier. Steel out from the hitch, then bolted to the aluminum rail the bike sits on. I always tighten down the anti rattle yoke, which really keeps things stable. After one year, I am fully confident in this carrier and recommend ... more »

In April, 2018 I bought a bone stock 17’ 350sxf with 6.2 hrs for $5,800. More than I wanted to spend but low hours sold me. It was a bank repo, and must have sat outside for a while, so a little wooly, but I scrubbed it back to life... and love it! Now

Where am I, 4 months after the first ride in 35 years! It was rough at first. Like waking up next to a hot, Italian model, but not man enough to satisfy her! I was getting killed in the sand, could barely turn, bumps were like a jack-hammer. 2 laps in ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2018 KTM 450 SX-F gearing changes and set up tips? 9/10/2018 4:50 PM

For the forks, I went from 146 to 132, which really smoothed out the ride. I am same weight, 50+ Vet C, so slower than many, but I was getting killed in choppy sand sections and tight braking bumps. Also raised forks to the forth line. Totally changed ... more »

The story as I know it... A kid in Vermont bought it, but the bank took it over due to missed payments. I bought it from a dealer of used dirt bikes and atv’s. They said the bike was probably repo’d dirty and probably sat for some time outside. Couldn’t ... more »

I look forward to swapping my bike to ride two strokes, so we'll see. agn5009, if you're my age, do you recall a track in State College? It had a monster drop away jump that ran out down a long hill. My one trip there was a rainy mudder, a total slosh ... more »
