Unfortunately no. I've got several sets of 52s from various years and none of the lower triple clamps worked with these particular forks. The outer tubs were significantly smaller in dia compared to the later versions, factory or not, requiring a custom ... more »

I've got a set of actual 2004/5 works MXGP 52mm forks for that bike. Just like these. They are era correct and in all likelihood, due to their uniqueness, probably one of the actual forks used or a set of factory spares. If you pull pictures of the 125/250

Our intent is to make the kit very economical. The biggest cost driver is the battery pack which right now puts the kit in a price range we feel wouldn't be commercially viable. However, we are working on alternative chemistries to rectify that situation. ... more »

That was an early development picture. We've tried several different combinations since. We're closer to a more conventional size right now, however, the taller gearing puts a larger load on the motor and range suffers. So, probably in between the "big

For the bigger (little) kids and adults that think an electric 65 can't be competitive I'd direct you to this video of the prototype ktm 65 conversion I built for Electro and Company in action. Enjoy. Mark, MSC Engineering. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnjh1dH86Mc ... more »

Which lever does what depends only on what hose goes where. My front brake is plenty strong so I use the small lever/hose connection for the front. The rear needs a bit more leverage so that's where the outside lever does better. This works for me but ... more »

This is a prototype I built awhile back. I tried having the clutch and rear on the same side but it didn't work for me. So I moved the rear to the left along side (but totally separate hydraulically) the front. Work either independently, simultaneously

I made these predictions just looking at the pictures that were released way back when. The two stage gear reduction is pretty unusual, most are single or none at all (direct drive). This indicates the use of a high voltage, very high rpm (probably 15000rpm

Sorry, I do not at this time. However, if that's the type of bike (trials) you'd want all you'd need to do is provide me with any one of the gas equivalents (with or without motor) and I can convert it for you. Mark.

The KTM website does not list a weight for the ebike. Not that I can find anyway. Yes, a jackshaft would allow a smaller rear sprocket.

If you wish for a 65 sized electric with the ability to instantly switch from putt-putt mode for the total beginner to full on adult F450 type torque I can make that wish come true. Example is an older KTM65 (140lbs) but I can convert just about any

Great! That should mean more 52s finding their way into the hands of the "general" public as racers try to recoup some of their investment at season's end, when switching brands, etc.
