Actually sent them an email last night prior to seeing this reply. Hopefully I can ship the forks out to them. I'll either go MXT or ship my stuff out to JBI for the KYB Conversion. Absolutely love the weight of the bike, I can toss it around. I just ... more »

Anybody know a good shop in central NJ (or surrounding tristate) that can handle the AER48 to KYB Spring Fork Conversion? I just can't stand the inconsistency of the air forks throughout the day. Also a bit unnerving, my buddy's air valve was leaking ... more »

New thread Idled bike on lowish* oil 12/26/2019 5:11 PM

Hey guys, First oil change on my 2019 KTM 250sx-f. Super annoying as the drain plug hex is not actually 12mm but closer to 13mm. Anyways after changing oil, I'm pretty sure I let the bike idle for 2 mins with about 800-850ml of oil in it. No revving ... more »

Ahhhh now I can't un-see that. Dumped the bike twice on some fast trails yesterday too. Ice everywhere. Been a great start so far....

Etown no, but Millville is open all year. It is about 75 miles south of Etown if you take 206. Otherwise 90 miles on turnpike

Hey man. Bought the bike for $8500 OTD, which isn't too bad. Although, I spent less on a brand new GSXR600 back in 2009

Hahaha thanks Seth, but zuke's gotta go. Need an upgrade

My buddy has a 2018 250sx with FC suspension. Love the bike but not a fan of the power delivery. Also, I've become accustomed to engine braking on the track. Not sure I can go back to ... more »

Sandman, really appreciate the tips regarding kerosene and scotch brite pads. This is the path I'll go to clean the linkage. Any tips on removing and installing the bearings?
