Perception is Enduro means slow bikes. Reality is, these and others like them are fully capable, of any competition from Erzberg to GNCC to MX/SX.

Added reply in a thread 17 KTM 450 shock spring ??? 3/20/2019 8:11 PM

A suspension guy said my shock may have been shortened because of the lack of threads vs the spring rate and sag numbers etc .. I'm not sure, but the bike feels normal under me when I sit on it, just soft. Will try another spring recommended and go from ... more »

Started new thread 17 KTM 450 shock spring ??? 3/12/2019 6:56 PM

Bought a 17 ktm 450, I weigh 210, the spring that's on it is a 42-200. I set my rider sag to 105mm, but the static sag is 41mm, supposed to be 35mm. I put a 5.2 on it and I can't even get the rider sag close to 105 without running out of threads, so ... more »

I am looking at a couple used 450s as a second bike. I primarily ride offroad, but because the price is right I am also interested in a 2017 ktm 450 sxf with 73 hours (rebuild at 60) to get back on the track. I am curious about people's long term experience, ... more »

Thinking about buying a 2015 rmz 450. It'll be my number two bike (I primarily race offroad) for the track, simply because it has only 20 hours on it and the price is right. I've never owned a Suzuki, so I'd like to hear people's experience with longevity, ... more »
