So more or less he went to longer or shorter linkage, and with that had to go up or down in spring rate. Makes sense. It is so freaking sensitive and can make 2sec/lap easilly with those changes.

So what is it that Reed wanted, but could not change? Cant be that many items that affects the bike in that way. Not change: - Tires - Fork and shock type (valving, oil, spring dimension is ok to change) - Swingarm - Fuel injection, airbox, - Fuel tank ... more »

350 to be ridden at 12000+ rpm, nothing happens before that. 450 16-17 needs quick throttle, 49 gearing and well adjusted throttle play. then map 1 is rideable and you can run at the 8-9000 rpm. 350 takes more on cardio, 450 more on muscles. i dont like ... more »

sure warm up can help, but it does not make a huge difference. tried simulate it with grippers also before practise but still get it. then gone for rest of day even if i skip warm up for the heat races

Added reply in a thread Arm pump 1/19/2017 1:31 PM

where can you listen to it, cant find it?

Added reply in a thread Tomac ? 1/9/2017 5:59 AM

stop over analyzing it. Tomac is solid if he fixes his starts, which he seem to have. He got armpump, my guess is that it was the cold evening (or food/water, whatever). happens a lot here when temp starts falling below 15celcius.

A friend had this 450 Husky 2017 FC making sounds, also think it was a oil channel that was clogged so cam was destroyed. First time i feel i hear something of an issue with the 2016-2017 KTM 450 SXF, besides the condensator mount.

Added reply in a thread 16-17 KTM bar height help 9/7/2016 4:47 AM

Get a different bar bend. Stock 2013-2015 handlebar is about 12mm higher. Raising the already sensitive (for twisting) bar mounts will do you no good.

I was told that the pistons in 2016-2017 Kawi is of shit quality (they break, split a part), and first piston should be changed at no more then 20h. Then install a 3rd part piston and you are good to go.

The WP Air forks are "better" then the full Ohlins forks if you ask me, i have ran both. Set SAG to 108/38 (make sure you have the spring to get those values). If you run SAG of below 108, you need to switch rear springs to softer ones. 108-110/41-55 ... more »

The fork is technically not loosing air when this happens. The air travel to the other side of a seal, holding it down in its stroke. It is a seal issue. In Sweden it has only happen (from what i know) when it has been minus degrees outside (celcius). ... more »
