I had one of these in 94 when I was 19. I rode it until it was just a pile of worn out, bent and beaten parts. Rode the hell out of it on a daily basis. Good times

Has anyone put a 2019 YZ450FX 2.2 gallon tank on an 18+ 450F? If so what was involved?

This may get you the user friendly roll on power of a small bore, but you will still have the weight, and worse yet the PERCEIVED weight of the 450...feels like a piglet and no turny turn as compared to smaller bore bikes.

I rode most of the 19 KTM's briefly at a demo event this spring. I was most comfortable on the 450 because I have ridden 450's almost exclusively for 10 years . I was most curious about the 350, though. The main thing you will immediately notice is that ... more »

Thanks everyone for the info It sounds like this is just what happens to SIDI SRS boots. Not cool. I do have a pair of (stitched sole) Crossfire TA boots as well, but prefer the SRS boot for its feel. The TA seems a bit clunkier, heavier,and maybe lacks ... more »

I think you are onto something here. so far I am three for three with the crossfire 2 boots- all come apart at the glued section. Thanks for the few useful responses in this thread. The rest of the "eew your boots are dirty" guys should just go polish ... more »

They are dirty. They got dirty as a result of dirtbike riding, which is what I purchased them for. I think some guys like to decorate their garages with cool stuff and some guys like to use the cool stuff. You should see what my old boots with 300 hrs ... more »

I am hoping to repair my SIDI crossfire 2 boots. The main portion of the sole has separated from the boot- as they always do eventually in my experience with 3 pairs of crossfire 2 boots the last few years. The difference is that this pair of crossfire

somebody needs to let the fools at KTM know before they throw it all away on these dead end bikes!! 350 pffft japan says no market. 300 two stroke? no market for that, either. stupid austrians , obviously not up on economics
