So I finally decided to bit the bullet and replace my bent wheels with brand wheels coupled with new Pirelli tires.

Different frame rails on RM-Z 250. Engine mounting tab is in different location

If they are delivering conversion kit it won't be just simple bolt on job...

I guess US riders have such smooth tracks that they don't need Trax feature and prefer dead feeling suspension setup

Added reply in a thread KTM 350- Ohlins or Cone Valve 4/15/2019 5:14 AM

I don't know why some people disengages the Trax feature. I have Trax shock in my 150SX and absolutely love how it makes easy finding rear wheel traction on a choppy outdoor tracks. I think myth about removing Trax feature comes from Supercross where ... more »

Read Mcgrath's book. He actually says that the bike was quite good. It was just freak accident what caused him to retire

I don't see the point of this bike. Finnish rider Emil Weckman tried to ride RM125 AF buildt by Italian team in EMX125 class couple years ago. Bike was too heavy and under powered against KTM's, Husky's and Yamaha's. Eventually the team folded up and

Looks like home made AF conversion to me. That silencer bracket and head stays doesn't look something that comes out from the Suzuki factory...

This is one of the greatest builds on this page for sure! Love those trick HRC two strokes. Maybe VitalMX should have some kind of trophy for the best bike builds

Almost any machine shop with lathe can modify carbs front and rear O.D. to match with stock carb

I have several friends running Chinese Keihin's on their bikes with out any problems. Just swap jets,needle and slide return spring to oem Keihin ones and set correct float level and you are good to go.

Looks pretty much prototype unit to me. Front y section of the frame and motor casings are CNC machined aluminum and I'm guessing the plastic parts are 3D printed . Judging from that there is no serial production tooling for the bike yet.

Added reply in a thread KTM statement: No Herlings in AMA Nationals 3/21/2019 9:10 AM

I think not letting Jeffrey to race AMA nationals is really poor choice from KTM's behalf. Jeffrey hasn't got anything prove anymore in GP's and I don't think he has much motivation to play second fiddle securing Cairoli's tenth championship either. ... more »
