Added reply in a thread Winter Greasing “framing” 11/23/2022 6:47 AM

I did a similar thing a few years back when I bought a used bike and framed it so I could PC the frame. I kept all the tools out and then got a tool box for the van and they all went in there with a few extra things. Then I bought new tools for home ... more »

Same boat here with a 9 and 6 year old. The 20's look so bad ass but it blows my mind that they are $3k. I bought a 110 instead since he's not trying to race and about to get him a 24" mountain bike so little brother can take his 20" mountain bike. I'm ... more »

There are a million variables when it comes to mileage. In my area its generally super tight and twisty trails where you're lucky to ever get out of third gear and half throttle. I can do a 2 hour hare scramble no problem. But then when I rode in Utah ... more »

They have been but must be stepping up their sponsorship level. I noticed a change from thor to fly as well.

What is the going rate for these installed?

Added reply in a thread 23 KTM 250sx vs KTM 250xc price gap 11/11/2022 5:58 AM

Previously the XC models have held their value on resale much better but I wonder how that will work now that the SX has all the goodies too. There also is the 5 speed vs 6 speed deal but really its insane that there is almost $2k in price for a few ... more »

Don't buy that pile.

It would look better if you picked up your shop a bit. Kinda sloppy looking.

Vince is a black eye to the MCR team. They run a great team but why they keep that clown on the roster baffles me.

Have any of you guys getting 300s had the tpi version before? How does the power compare? I rode one in the parking lot but that doesn’t really compare to riding one in the dirt. The bottom end paper felt smooth and tractable like the TPI but I wonder ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2023 KTM SX300 Official Thread 10/31/2022 7:56 PM

My last carb'd two stroke LOVED T2 so I'd definitely like to try it in the TBI bikes. I've stuck with non ethanol pump gas in my TPI and it always runs great but theres something about the way they run on race fuel that can be very addictive.

Use the time to start shopping for bling for it haha!

The new ones.

I've put hundreds of hours on the moose stainless spokes with zero issue.

Added reply in a thread 2023 KTM SX300 Official Thread 10/26/2022 7:56 PM

Yeah I ran that muffler on my 20 and loved it but I ran the fatty to get more top end. I’d be interested to see how the gnarly performs but I doubt the bike needs more bottom haha. Plus I like the factory fatty because looking cool trumps all lol. Post ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2023 KTM SX300 Official Thread 10/26/2022 7:42 PM

What pipe and silencer did you get and what brand? I was surprised how short the muffler was on the off road bikes and I will likely order an FMF but they don’t show exactly what it looks like and wondered if they even made a longer one that would be ... more »

I have a 2020 TX and honestly I really like the forks. I did update the mid valve to the 21 version which helped hold up a lot but really they have been quite good.
