No problem. It was just like the rumors good and bad and then the waiting game for my new factory edition.

Yes, they the Xtrigs fit the 16-18s and this is my new 18.5 factory edition so they'll definitely fit the 19 models as well.

I just had 2 new Fox V3s painted and I asked that same question and he said that he preferred plain white but he also knew that it wasn't possible so to just get him 2 new helmets.

I twisted the mounts very easily on my first 2 450FEs and to solve that problem I went with Xtrig PHDS mounts on last yrs and this yrs. Much beefier and have more movement with the elastomers.

Got the new updated graphics on today. Added some blue and orange to try and break up all of the white on the back half of the bike.

Still no head pipe and I'm bummed because I ordered my stuff in early February. Yes I'm at .64 and it's running tremendous now.

You definitely need to adjust the TPS and richen it up a bit. Freezing here in Ma too. It feels like January, WTF?

I was able to get my hands on a team issue Akro's for my 16 FE450 and I hated it. It was super sleepy and felt like the bike had 3-5 less hp than my off of the rack full FMF system. It did rev to the moon and probably was awesome on the factory KTM which ... more »

The Akro was supposedly available when I ordered my FMF so check with your dealer again.

I'm using the Best Dual Sport TPS and have been for the past 3 seasons. It's more money than the just the plug version above because it comes with the voltmeter and it's already set up which makes it much easier to use.

Yes Josh, bone stock and super unleaded fuel.

The forks were very slightly modified last yr so those are the same. The shock is bone stock except for the 48 spring I installed and the sag is at 103 instead of the 108 on my previous FEs. It broke in very quickly and the track was beat to shit by ... more »

Front fender is the same, front number is different but will fit. Nothing else fits, shrouds, side number plates and rear fender are all different and have very different mounting points.

I did 2 of my buddy's new 18.5s at the track yesterday and they're both bone stock and we ended up at .61. They both ran great after the adjustment.

I don't have a before cut pic but if you look at yours you can see exactly how much I cut off and how much bigger the air inlet area is in my other after the cut pic. I cut with a Harbor Freight whizzer and then ran it on my grinder a cpl of passes to
