Reply to Excel Rim repair or replace 11/16/2020 4:26 PM

Yes, I unmounted the tire, held the rim (2017 KTM front) over a gas stove and then beat it with a rubber hammer right after getting it hot. The repair turned out way better than I expected. I would continue to try and repair it until the rim cracks. ... more »

I'm racing an FC250 at the moment, and really like it. Motor seems amazing to me, air fork (which I like on the 4T) and Husky pays good contingency. KTM/Husky also has a new EFI tuner for 21.

It's a $300/4 week turn around choice to replate or not. That's a big deal to some, and not to others. If you're in a hurry or short on money, then it's probably okay to run without any fingernail catching grooves in the bore. I'd plan on a replate at ... more »

As I said, you are right in the design window, and taking good care to see such a small drop in comp @ ~100hrs interval. This piston replacement interval should be adjusted to compensate for dirty intake/poor fuel/lesser oil/detonation etc. But for you, ... more »

He ended up going with Phil White at the recommendation of a friend. I linked him to this thread and he also passed along his appreciation for all the responses.

Pro taper steering damper low works great for me.

Thank you for the recommendation. I'll suggest that he give them a call. MSRP is $956 for the OEM part.

Might be worth repacking the silencer, definitely check the linkage and swingarm pivots for grease/wear. Very impressed with how it's running! Seems like you've got it right in the design window (A:F, track conditions, maintenance, fuel). Nice job.

Is it steel or aluminum. Check via magnet.

I would email some of the big bore folks that do cranks, like Millenium.

Such a long and gnarly series!

And to think the bikes that sell the most in 2020 are called 'Ready to Race'! What would our great grandpa's think? More like build a Norton/BSA from scratch (like that Indo guy) and less like 2020.

Good to hear. I also had that problem. Fuses looked fine at a visual check but didn't test right. My bike was fixed with a second new Husqvarna relay.

There were some threads on KTM talk about the gear ratios changing 2007-2016. I'm not that familiar, though. I'd imagine if you were to buy shafts and dogs and forks as a set, they would slip into the cases, but you would need to do some part number ... more »

Reply to 2 stroke oil question 10/22/2020 1:57 PM

What do you have access to? Are you shopping online or at the dealer? Belray is the Husqvarna equivalent of Motorex and most bike shops have H1-R as their top esther synthetic premix oil. I would say that choosing the right oil is critical on highly ... more »

You're getting your money's worth out of that stabilization feature. Man, that trail looks technical and rough!

I found this link pretty handy on setup and battery life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClaNfaC3j4M I'm leaning toward a GP7 or 8 with a super suite (protective case) for recording helmet cam footage with the camera mounted under my visor. Just not ... more »
