Im in the "it should never be ridden" camp. A new in the wrapper bike like that should be on display somewhere. Like that CR500 that was still in the crate from a few years ago. Leave it in the crate.

Holy misinformation batman. The Traction Control (TC) function is integrated into the bikes’ ECUs, and activated by KTM’s all-new, bar-mounted Map-Selector Switch. Instead of using a sensor on the rear wheel, KTM’s TC system simply analyses throttle ... more »

Same problem here. Its buggy as shit. Total beta, not ready for retail. What a waste.

As it sits today, the game is garbage. I got the PC version running on a 7700K/1080ti system, and it frame stutters at the first turn running ultra settings @ 1080p. That needs some work. Plus breaking is worthless. And the bikes sliding around is totally ... more »

Chain too tight. Looks like when it compressed the rear suspension, the chain pulled the sprocket off the mounts. This has happened before and looks like you found the weak point of your chain being too tight.

The whole rolling every jump is very much in jest. I would like to feel confident in hitting anything on the track. But I dont want to be singing at the top of the gear on my 250f trying to get myself over it, with the possibility that I could hit redline ... more »

The troll tendencies are strong on this forum, that's for sure.

I appreciate your opinions. The FC and the SX-F are at the top of the list. So would be like a CRF450R or X and YZ450F or FX. I think they all have Estart nowadays.

That was another luxury item I want. Not a deal breaker if I were to get a new bike though.

There is no need to troll. I’m presenting my wants and needs, but they are not tied to any specific model or type. That’s what I’m asking you guys for. The others seem to get it. Hell its just been said that the riding experience I’m describing is not ... more »

Of course. I would probably turn the same lap times on a new 450 vs my 1995 RM 125 I used to race. I get that. I just want the lazy man's bike that I can "grow into". I know I wont be running side by side with A riders. But I like I said earlier, I want ... more »

Although the 17 KTM 450XC-F looks like a moto bike with a kickstand, 18" rear tire and the bigger tank. I would add a kickstand anyway like I did on the 250f. Or a YZ450FX.

Well without taking your post as disrespectful sarcasm, I will say that you are completely right. I rode a brand new KTM 250 SX-F for about 4 hours last season. Didnt even put gas in it before it got stored for winter and then sold a few days ago. And ... more »

I was too 20 years ago. And it was all normal. But Ive had a taste of the good life, but is valve adjustments and fuel injection problems worth the price of not mixing gas/oil? And on the other side, the two strokes are so simple and cheap to work on. ... more »

Custom tuned, or as its pronounced in this community "remapped".

My car is tuned to run on E85 for boost. E85 has much higher octane ratings than gas, and its $1.70 a gallon. But finding stations can be challenging.

Added reply in a thread 250T or 450?? 1/22/2018 6:49 AM

It has nothing to do with effort. But keeping fuel/oil around can be tedious. On the flip side, stopping at a station on the way to the track and just putting gas directly into the bike as well as the truck at the same time and then driving off is a ... more »

I'd like to stick to a 450. I want to lug it around and not worry about hitting rev limiter on jump faces. That scares the shit out of me. Or missing shifts/hitting N at take off. Thats disaster for even the pros. I feel like a 450 would allow me to ... more »

I MAY race here and there, not shooting for a podium finish either...lol. I plan on lots of practice days and tons of trails. But I want an MX bike.
