I have a '19 Husky TX 300 with a Lectron and my son has a '17 KTM 250 XC with a smart carb. I love the Husky, BUT....I'd go with a KTM or GasGas for the aluminum subframe. The composite subframe is scary and I've broken the tabs that hold the seat down

I'm hoping for a locust plague. They eat the air filters. Everyone DNF's except those tough enough to push across the finish line. Tomac throws his bike over his shoulder and displays his elk packing/cyclocross skills. Takes the win, guts the bike on ... more »

Added reply in a thread Local Racing... What really grinds my gears. (South Carolina) 4/20/2021 9:02 AM

Same here except that we race 1-2 motos/year just for the change. Otherwise, it's all enduros (some of them 2-day) and hare scrambles. When we do race MX, I race 2-3 classes: 50+ for sure and then whatever else I fit into... 250B, 40+, etc.

Sidi are pretty small. I wear an 8.5 in almost everything. 9 in Leatt and Fox boots. My Sidi CR2 SRS are 9.5 and are best with thin socks.

Hoping to. It's the longest drive of the series for me and my work schedule is unpredictable. But I want to. Look you up if we make it?

Actually, I have a Bulletproof disc guard on the KTM, so if the axle is the same size, it might work. I hope the rebuild kit just solves the problem Bike has 180 h but is new to me. I'm betting it has the original cylinder guts. I don't mind buying a ... more »

Looks like a blown seal in the unit. I removed and cleaned it out but when I pump the brake, it blows fluid out the bottom. I have a new piston/seals coming but IF they don't do the job, can I swap the entire Brembo rear brake off my '19 KTM 150 SX to ... more »

There ya go... now the bells are starting to ring!!! At this point, I don't what the issue is going to be. I just know that after a 120 mile, 2-day enduro, I have no rear brake and there's fluid hanging off the end of the joint head that connects the ... more »

Got a leak on the bottom of the rear master cylinder on my '19 Husky TX300. Somewhere in the dark recesses of my moto brain, I recall that the hot tip was to replace the O-rings and seal with those from a KTM 300. Or was it the other way around? On a ... more »

Stock carb ran "okay" and probably could've run great in ONE situation, had I spent more time with it. I just feel like when I drive all day to get from NM (6,500' and 10% humidity) to OK (800' and 100% humdity), and my enduro starts at 9 am, I just

Okay... so, let me rephrase that. If I'm not getting spark, but the resistance of everything from the spark plug cap, coil wire, coil, capacitor, ignition pulse, and stator, meets manual specs, then what? It seems like I should be able to test that there

I need your help, oh wise Vitards. My son's '18 KTM 250 SXF has no spark. This happened while it was sitting for 3 weeks, thanks to snow. Prior to this, it started _immediately_ and was the best starting bike in the garage. It has a brand-new Lithium
