I bought a new Suzuki RMZ450 in 2006 and it was delivered to my house in a crate. It was enjoyable unwrapping it and fitting the front wheel and bars etc. It was also less than half the price of the rrp in 2021. It would be good business sense for manufacturers ... more »

Added reply in a thread 125 or 250f 9/8/2021 1:12 PM

I've had plenty of 125s in the past, along with every other engine size apart from a 500. I'm currently on a 2016 SX150 and it's definitely the most fun bike of them all. You still have the thrill of screaming the bike like a 125 but it has a bit more ... more »

Been running my SX150 at 40:1 with 927 for the last 10hrs. After years on 450s I've certainly been wringing this little bikes neck and all been fine so far. The plug looks good, with no oil out the silencer. The proof will be when I open it up in another

I guess you've checked the timing and valve clearances are all correct?

Raced my SX150 yesterday in open A class against kids less than half my age, and finished mid pack. So much fun and also fast when you keep them on the pipe. Got out dragged once by a 450 and the start was pretty tough, but it was a good feeling beating

I'm in the UK and have an EU model so it has the first generation WP Air forks. They are terrible and I'm looking to get them sorted soon!

Can't speak for the tm but I have a 2016 SX150 and absolutely love it. I'm also 38, and have been racing for 18 years. I've mainly had 450s and 125s, but this is the first 150 I've had and it's so much fun. It's so light but also has some real power ... more »

Hi, I have a 2016 KTM SX 150 (EU) with the first generation WP Air forks. I believe the US got the same fork in 2017. Is it possible to get these forks feeling good, as I'm just not happy with them. I have to run the pressure low to get them plush enough, ... more »

I agree with this 100%

This is the front of the world MXGP class, it's not a place for pussies. There's guys out there racing with broken bones. Hard passes and not worrying about other riders feelings are part of the game

I'm gonna go against popular opinion as I don't like 350s. I ridden and raced all engine sizes apart from 500 2 strokes, and spent most of my time on either 125s or 450s. I ride mostly motocross. I didn't get on with the 350 as the bottom end felt sluggish

Thanks guys. Going from feel I would agree that the pilot is richer than the main, and if anything the next change I'll make will be to go up one size on the main, but I'll hold out until the weather starts to cool down

Thanks guys, yeh I'm aware you can fit a 150 barrel to the 125, but was curious if the 150s from the factory state '150' on the metal frame tag, or if they still state 125

Thanks. The last 30 seconds of run time was just cruising to the pits. The piston was replaced and the barrel reconditioned 10.9hrs ago. It runs absolutely amazing

Hi, I know the procedure of a proper plug chop or a full read by checking the base of the porcelain, but for a general idea of how my bike is running would you say these pics show reasonable jetting? Its a 2016 SX150 and ridden hard on the pipe. Running

Hi, I bought a used 2016 KTM SX150 recently, which had a receipt for some recent engine work which included a 150 piston and barrel reconditioning. The frame number actually shows as a 125, and the metal ID badge on the steering stem also states 125. ... more »

Added reply in a thread 125 vs 150 Questions 7/30/2021 1:34 PM

I've recently moved to a 2016 SX150 and the thing rips. It's easier to ride than a 125 as the extra power allows for less down shifts and still pulls with a nip of the clutch. I run 13/50 gearing and like it

Added reply in a thread Which 250F would suit me best? Tall Vet 6/27/2021 2:28 PM

I'd definitely consider them, as I have been running the pegs in the lower position on my KX which feels good. They aren't quite that low though, and I would be worried about catching my size 12s on the rutted tracks that I ride in the UK

Hi guys, so a year later and I'm back in the same boat! Sold the 350 a year ago and went to a showroom for a look around. Ended up walking out with a 2020 KX450 haha. It was what I was used to so felt like an easy purchase. I've done a year on it and ... more »
