Like Seth505 said, get to the track, let the bike sit out while you're getting ready then check the air pressure, set it, bleed the air screws on both sides and go rip. If I ride for 20-30 minutes hard I always come back in and bleed the air screws and ... more »

I know a ton of fast dudes who run the Lectron and love it so its another one of those subjective things. I live in Oregon and was tired of the bike running good in the morning and shitty when it warmed up, or at different elevations the bike would hiccup, ... more »

If you buy the 150, I recommend throwing the Mikuni carb away and getting a Lectron or ANYTHING other than the POS Mikuni that comes on it. I would also recommend adding 1 tooth to the rear sprocket (stock is 48 so go to 49) along with the Moto Tasinari ... more »

Thanks! The swingarm protectors are from Polisport. They snap on tight, and are secured with a two zip ties on each side. I remove them every few rides depending on how muddy it gets when I wash, then just snap them on and put new black zip ties in. ... more »

My 19 150sx is a blast to ride. Lots of power and requires a lot of technique to ride it to its full potential. I race occasionally and when I'm on it, I can hold off and even pass 250f's. I'm 5'8 175lbs. Again, your technique will definitely improve ... more »

Hate to say it, but I said it back on the OG Covid thread in March...buckle up, sh*ts about to get bad. And here we are.

I'm still perplexed at why this 'wearing a mask' thing is so confusing to many people. It's not going to prevent anyone from being infected by Cv19 from some idiot deciding they aren't going to wear one because of "(insert some *bs* freedom, conspiracy

I just received the full KTM repair manual for '19/20 125 and 150 SX in PDF format. The manual is the complete step by step breakdown of the bike and more in depth than the service manual given when you buy the bike. Happy to share it with anyone who ... more »

Reply to 2019 KTM 150sx questions 5/27/2020 12:30 PM

Interesting you say that your 150 has vibration in the pegs and bars? I don't feel that at all on mine. Have you gone over every bolt to make sure nothing is loose?

Reply to 2019 KTM 150sx questions 5/21/2020 10:26 PM

The 150 has more torque, and low end grunt. However, it doesn't rev as far or long as a 125. The 150 is a rocket ship if you keep it in the meat of the power, and by meat I mean a very thin slice of within gears. If you wait to long or shift a second ... more »

Reply to How long should amateurs stay on 125s? 5/21/2020 7:17 PM

Like most of the posts above, KEEP the 125 and learn to ride it so fast and hard until the wheels fall off. If you can rip a 125 around balls-out, you'll jump on a 250f and feel like a super hero. But being a super-hero on a 125 sure sounds and feels ... more »
