I’m kinda in the same predicament, but I really want the 150. Having not actually ridden a 150 yet, can someone explain the biggest differences between the 125 and 150? I’ve been pricing them and I can actually get the ‘18 and ‘19 husky 125 for around ... more »

I went ahead and got the longer sdi pull arm and actually raced with it this past weekend at Lake Sugar Tree. What a difference the link made! The rear of the bike just settles into the corners so nicely now. I felt like stock the bike kind of wanted ... more »

Curious if anyone has tested or tried a different pull rod arm on their 16'-17' Ktm/husky? I've been riding a 17' FC350 since March and I really think this bike could benefit from a lowering link. Would really like some insight from someone who is currently ... more »

I got my suspension back from total control on Friday and was able to ride both Saturday and Sunday. I was amazed at how these forks feel now. Front end traction and feel was greatly improved. So far the only adjustment I've had to make was one click ... more »

I just picked up a new FC350 as well and was having the same feelings as you. I'm a bit lighter at only 150 pounds but also run 25+A. The settings I found the best for me on the fork was 143psi 14 on compression and 8 on rebound. i thought the fork felt ... more »

I ended up being able to get the best deal and support on the husky so I picked up this jewel this evening! My suspension guy already has me a lighter rear spring on the way. Can't wait to get that swapped out and throw a few laps on it!

Has anyone rode both the Ktm and Husky? I have a shop that actually wants to help me out but it's on a husky. I've heard some say that husky feels a little slower because of the airbox. Are there really any other differences? Just looking for the most ... more »

I honestly love my yz250 and my kx450. I just have too many bikes at the moment, as I also have a yz125 that I did as a project bike but I have too much time and money invested in that one to sell anytime soon. Plus, ringing the tits off a 125 will bring ... more »

I had been searching for just the right yz125 to do a build on for well over a year now. Yz125s for a good price are pretty tough to come by in my area due to their popularity. I finally came across one for the listing price of $1800. I went and looked

Sounds like your rear shock is way to soft causing it to wallow. If it's to soft it stays riding to far down in the stroke making it feel like your bike is all over the place, you're basically using more spring than dampening and you definitely need ... more »
