Thank you, that's the response I was hoping to hear. Have you played with flywheel weight or know anyone who has? Had good luck with my yz in the past curious if it would help as much with the ktm with it already having a bit more rotating mass (counter ... more »

Never got along well with my yz, or any yz for that matter, I like the feel, fit and finish, and overall package much more on the ktm, but I also liked my hondas and Suzuki more than yamahas as well

2017 yz250 msrp $7290, 2017 250sx msrp $7699, I bought mine for 7800 OTD, difference in price is a couple hundred dollars depending on what your dealer can do for you. I'm sure if Suzuki did make a new 250, which I doubt they will, it would be priced ... more »

What's the hot setup for the new ktms? Looking to keep the low end and midrange punch but help out the top end pull, bike really seems to go flat quickly. Read good reviews on the pc works/r304 combo, seems as though it'll help with what I want and will

I'm pleasantly surprised with my recovery, it will be a month tomorrow and I'm walking without crutches although with a limp. Was even able to get some yard work done and clean the garage today. Having a rod put in is apparently pretty easy to recover ... more »

It was a nasty injury for sure lol every day gets a little bit easier, you don't realize how much you take things like walking for granted until you can't do it.

I have a 17 250sx currently, unfortunately only hit 4.8 hrs before breaking my femur. But I can say in the short time I was riding the bike this year it is hands down the best 250 2t I've ever ridden, last ones were a 2010 yz250 with basic mods done ... more »

Only jet I needed to touch was the main, went up one size. Idk what the deal is with everyone else's bikes running like garbage but mine was pretty spot on right out of the gate. Also I ran my 2010 yz250 at 52:1 forever and never had a single problem, ... more »

Read the manual, that's what ktm tells you to do. Pretty sure they know what their bike needs.

It was bad enough I stopped mid sentence with my buddies and yelled "HOLY SHIT" loud enough the track workers 100 yards away turned to see what I was talking about. I still don't see how he rode it out, must have been going just slow enough.

That happened at baja acres in Michigan a couple weeks ago. I watched the cash from my pit and couldn't believe how hard it looked even from 200 yards away. Can't believe he walked away, I've seen people leave in a helicopter crashing on that jump.

I pre ordered mine in June but ended up using a different dealer after it was almost 2 months late. Don't expect it to be there when the dealer says it will.
