Reply to Changing KTM from orange to red and black. Need ideas. 10/24/2021 7:33 AM

I buy KTM for the far superior engineering and quality of components. My last six 450's all had +200 hours on the top ends and clutches when sold them to get a new one and were running great. My current 2019 has 230 hours and is going strong. Also, the ... more »

I didn't realize that.... Personally, the cost of a fuel tank (+$300) just for a cosmetic change is a no go. I'd go with the RTech red plastic before spending the cash on a new tank.

I'm in the process of changing mine up to red, white and a little black. I suggest going with white plastic and graphics majority red. Liquid Skinz graphics did mine as pictured below. I'm having them change the white vinyl to red to make most of the

Thx. FWIW, their $378.24 kit price is exactly the same as AOMC and RM.

FYI, Reynard's is not open to the public, You do have TMX, Jandebeur's, Budd's Creek, AMP and Twin Hills. A number of these are only open on a very limited schedule. None are even close to the quality of Reynard's but Robbie only lets the public in for ... more »

Sprew, I followed your suggestion and had lunch at Sugars before returning home. Good call. The ribs were fantastic. Great scenery from their deck as well. My wife and I liked Chattanooga a bunch. Beautiful, clean city with genuinely friendly people. ... more »

I think there's something in the Oklahoma water at the Reynard Training Complex that improves the whip-ability of guys. Some of the best come out of Robbie's OK facility: - Bogle - Canard - Forkner - Jimmy Albertson - Brett Que - Etc.

Sorry for not responding and thanking all for taking the time to help me out. I'm in Chattanooga as I type. I flew in yesterday to visit the Amazon fulfillment center were I've been offered the job and to scout the housing market. I like what I see in ... more »

I'd like to spend $400,000 or so max as I'd be able to pay cash. I'd be willing to go above that for the right property but would rather not take on debt. The address of the Amazon fulfillment center is: 8000 Tuckaseegee Rd, Charlotte, NC 28214

Thank you. I was aware the Amazon location was west of the airport but appreciate your clarification. I was hoping being off 485 would benefit commute time. Out by the lake would be nice as I own a boat and my wife and I are avid water skiers.

I greatly appreciate you taking the time to help me out. SC sounds like a good option. My wife and I are tired of living in a subdivision environment and prefer to make our next home in a somewhat rural/county setting. We've lived in subdivisions for ... more »

Temp and humidity in Oklahoma are relatively high. We ride in the high 90's to low 100's with average humidity of low 80%. I ride 4 - 30 minute moto's every ride day, year round on a pro level practice track (i.e., Reynard's). Granted, I'm a 61 year ... more »

What specific town/city in SC? I'd like to keep my commute to around 20 minutes.

I've spent MANY, MANY dozens of hours researching the company and the position. I would be the executive level, Sr. Site Workplace Health & Safety Manager for the fulfillment center. I've been in the oil and gas industry for 35 years and I'm looking ... more »

Reply to Rockstar Husky chains? 7/18/2021 10:02 PM

Interesting as I've used RK ringed chains for well over 10 years on 450's. I switched about a year ago as the longevity of the RK had gone down considerably. Something changed as the top and bottom of the chains were wearing flat quickly from the contact ... more »

Polisport makes the OEM plastic for all the Austrian brands as well as Honda and Yamaha. I've always been happy with the quality and durability as well as fitment. It's also the least expensive aftermarket brand. I recommend Polisport.

I appreciate all the input provided and following up on all suggestions in my research. Your comment on congestion is interesting. Are you refering to traffic? Everything I read says traffic is not bad at all compared to most metropolitan areas? Maybe ... more »

My kids have graduated college so schools don't matter. Except for when I go to sell it and someone with kids wants good schools... Just my wife and I.

Thanks. Let me see how this plays out with Amazon. She would prove very helpful! I'll hit you up with a PM if it firms up. Thx. Rick
