Interesting, our feedback has been its more alike than different

Gearbox has stronger gears.
Shifting mechanisms and parts are identical

Generally most ktm owners are not aware that the shift drums are aluminum and wear out over time some. Makes shifting get harder and harder. New fresh bike (or shift drum) makes a big difference

The Panki gearbox made a huge difference. I have the 18.5 450 FE and its the best shifting bike I have ever owned by far. My old 80-81' Maicos were very close.

Yeah could be just because the bike is fresh, time will tell

Once properly run in get yourself over to fatcats, takes a lot of water to close that place and a really good track too. Well that's if you like deep sand !

22 hours on mine and I'm still tickled with it, had FC work their magic on the suspension and I couldn't be happier. Enjoy it!

I remember when I was a kid and my dad hated when I put a Jazzy Jeff/Fresh Prince tape in on the way to the track. "That's not music, that's garbage!" he'd say...

I ain't trippin' no more, really ain't worth my time so to squash it all, I kicked on back and wrote you all this rhyme... Benzes rollin', Beemers jettin', and Caddies keep on dippin'... You keep on talkin' all that crap, but I ain't trippin'

damn I was about to buy a 17 with only 10 hrs for 5700 USD but now I'm thinking twice although it would have to be alot better for me to justify the extra dough ( if I could even afford it at all)!

Dhde i have no bad thing to say about the 17! Mine was absolutely bomb proof, thing had over 180 hours onit and never had one problem with it, i just feel this new bike is a big update, i suppose it depends how much you want to spend

Thanks bro! Sent the suspension off this week for a bladder conversion on the back, and im not really sure what they do to the forks with one side being oil and air, soon find out hopefully makes a difference

Nobody said anything about the man's character...just his choice of music. It's public forum...not everyone will agree.
