Either way, black DLC looks bitchin’ and much better than chromed.

Yes they are, but the Xact pro (cone valves) comes with crome lowers and has for some time. If I remember correctly they changed from black DLC when the cone valves went to silver upper tubes. That’s why I’m asking - my cone valves are chrome and I was

Did get your lower fork tubes anodized black? Looks much better that the chrome tubes!

This! But tbh, Roczen needs to up his grit during the last portion of the races. Webb eats him up the last few minutes in almost every race. I did not think Webb looked better through the whoops. He looked ok. Going to be an exciting season for sure! ... more »

Roczen is sooo fast in the first few laps. Flawless heat win!

He seemed off… maybe first race nerves?

I’d choose a carb over a lectron all day every day. It isn’t that much work to jet and set up a carb..

Spend a few bucks on jetting and get the slide in AJ’s thread. Play around with the power valve. A pipe and silencer doesnt hurt! A 300 kit if you want more oomphf. I havent tried any high comp heads, eniginr mods or a lectron. I think the bike runs

You can get that Akropovic can through ktm power parts. I think Ktm’s and akro’s go hand in hand.

Awesome bike! I love how your bike looks! It so clean when you use stock shrouds and have clean graphics. I have a Pro Taper EVO factory Suzuki/Ktm stock bend in my garage. I tried it a few times and it feels good. Maybe worth looking into if you want

Added reply in a thread Euro/Jap Bolt Differences 1/4/2022 1:33 PM

Yes! I think the smaller contact area of the torx makes for less corrosion. I bought the Bolt Pro-pack set a few weeks ago. Havent recieved it yet, but if it shows up the next few days I’ll report back to you. If you are really desperate, go to KTM’s sparepartsfinder ... more »

Added reply in a thread Euro/Jap Bolt Differences 1/4/2022 6:35 AM

I sometimes do! Fwiw I usually use torx instead of hex on the bolt. The torx slots seem to be a tighter fit and that may prolong the life of the coating some. And quality metric tools. Always. Torque to spec. Always. Loctite where needed. Always.

I like the 350, but I love the 250 two stroke. But there is a few things you should know if you are considering a smoker: - It is a similar power bike, but the powerband on the 350 is broader. - the smoker doesnt have engine braking. Some love the lack

It fun to read the MXDN threads. It seems the euro vs us thing never dies. I think us top riders can run near or close to the front in some GPs. Lommel? Not so much. Will a top twenty guy in the us be a top twenty guy in mxgp? Nah… If you study maths
