Regardless, it's clear that for a front axle on a modern bike, aluminum of any alloy and temper is a bad choice. Now maybe we can get back to discussing the original topic of this thread? 100% agree, That's all I was trying to say in the first place. ... more »

Exactly ! There is no benefit to an Aluminum axle. If there was, then ......... well you know, everyone would have them. I wouldn't be afraid of it breaking, just more fatigue, bending, galling, with zero gains. Who wants to try one out ? Front or rear, ... more »

And your background is ? Clearly you have no background since you cant answer the question. Until then, just quit responding. It obvious that explaining something to you would require a lot more time than I have! Good day MATE!

Thanks BR8es, that is a nice read and explains it well. He said running an aluminum axle would give him the willies :-) Galling would be another big concern, but a Nicotef coating would help prevent that.

No, It was your claim I know nothing. I simply stated my background, and then you never answered my question ?? Never said I was an expert, but I am very familiar with all aspects of metal. To be an expert, you would have to be a certified metalurgist, ... more »

Im sorry, but who in their right mind would run a bike with an aluminum axle ?? That is the last place I would skimp on strength to reduce a few ounces.

Am I the only one that thinks the Mercedes Sprinter is a POS ? I mean, I have rode in them and have friends with them, Im not impressed. Just saying. Fords version with the Ecoboost is a much better option IMO. Obviously, you will not find one used in ... more »

The perforated tank graphics do that on every bike. As soon as I got graphics that were not perforated, i have never had an issue. Also, are you using a heat gun to apply ? This helps them stick really good, at minimum let them sit out in the sun before ... more »

Do a search on it, everyone who swore by it, has stopped using it. Rekluse also stopped recommending it for use with their clutches. I would say no.

I get the budget thing, but guys will spend $200 on graphics, $150 on plastics, this is what I consider bling. The Lectron carb is actually the best performance upgrade bang for the buck. It will wake that bike up ! Cheers !

I have heard the best thing to do with the KTM 150 is to put a Lectron Carb on it. All jetting issues solved for that bike.

8-10 scoops, 8 will turn and slide better, 10 scoop wants to go in a straight line a little more. Either will work fine.

Thank you for checking on that. I am looking for a KX 100 swing arm and linkage 2014 and up. Let me know if anyone has one, or knows of a good place to get a used one. Thanks

I am pretty sure they will fit, I am wondering about just swapping wheels sizes out and leaving 85 swing arm and linkage. Has anyone done this ? How does it handle ? Thanks
