Ripped threads laterally bad camera view but chain guide has bent in that area also

I never said it was a bad weld it was good to the best of my knowledge. In this case (although I’ll never know) I have to assume is was due to knock that it received and maybe chain block bolts>welds. It was such a sudden failure I’m sure I would ... more »

Hmm maybe not many I’d always check the frame etc. during washing or changing tyres (as a mountain biker I know the terrors of cracked frames). I think my wrong doing was assuming that bad welds could make it past inspection never thought anything of ... more »

Well the bracket is clearly the problem, and it’s on a Yamaha. So it’s a Yamaha problem. If it wasn’t I wouldn’t be sitting here with 5 broken bones. I have now looked at other brands and yes I now see they are very similar however I’ve only been able ... more »

Hmm now that I see how much of a problem this can cause I will definitely look into strengthening this part on my future bikes as I definitely don’t want to experience this issue mid-air ever again

No I think I must clarify that no rock was ‘stuck’ in the chain block. A rock must just have knocked against it and ripped off the bracket at the welds. I wonder that people who have seen this on a KTM is it the chain block bolts breaking or the swingarm ... more »

I agree with this to a certain extent but it appears that Honda, Kawasaki and Suzuki use 2 seperate mountain brackets connected to the swingarm however the Yamaha only uses one. After looking at some pictures it appears Yamaha have the poorest design. ... more »

I understand that anomalous mechanicals do occur however the bracket on a ktm is integrated into the swingarm when it is being cast; not welded. I’m not sure if other brands share the same design but the weld in my opinion creates a point of weakness ... more »

Recently I had a freak mechanical problem which caused a large accident and numerous injuries. Just before a jump a rock caught the chain block at the rear sprocket and ripped it off at the welds on swingarm (showed no prior marks of stress) . As it

2017 KTM 250sxf. Nearly every time out something broke on it whether it be electrical or those evil AER 48 forks. I was happy to see it go.

Although the title is very confusing, I believe the poster is trying to say that the start straight is a very abrupt bottleneck which causes Tom Vialle to move across other riders causing a collision.

At the moment I just have Acerbis (universal fit). Trying to find out if there is others that have thinner mounts or a different style of mount

Thank you for the info. I use ASV levers so unsure wether they’ll fit. KTM make very good handguards that mount onto the clutch and front brake perch of their bikes however Yamaha does not seem to do the same

I have a 2019 Yamaha 250YZF and run a set of Renthal twinwall handlebars. Due to the mapping switches and electric start switch there is almost no space to put handguards on. Is there any tips or hand guard brands out there that mount onto the handle ... more »
