Need inspiration on what stuff I can add onto my 350sxf for hs and gncc style racing. Already got handguards/skidplate. Thinking of an xcf tank and stabilizer first? Already have suspension done as well. A list of things done to your bikes would be great so i know what to look for.

Sounds like you have dropped enough coin, except the best item I ever bought for my bike. From woods to woods roads, a Scott’s dampener. In Eastern Canada, the woods are thick and lots of roots and rocks.

I would like to see some 350 woods weapons as well. Will be 60 next year (holy F!), I’d buy a 350 EXC, not giving up much, softer suspension and you get a plate! Add dampener and gas.

17 FX350. Revalved suspension, Ohlins Steering Damper, Acerbis bark busters, TrailTech fan, high pressure rad cap, Works Connection full skid plate, made my own linkage guard, 13t front sprocket, and a rear brake guard. 70 hours on it and love it. Oh, my stickers were free!

If you were riding 06 WP forks u would! “OMG, what is wrong with this thing ”!?
Broomsticks, but I love the thing. Steering dampener, world of difference in thick woods and fast roads.
Beautiful. 1st bike I ever had that needed one.

The Acerbis frame grip product is awesome. I zip tie grip tape.
Awesome bikes.

Rekluse or a heavier flywheel. That 350SX will suck off road without one or the other.

Exactly. Mine fully stock now goes up and through anything. I have neither. Gotta keep her pinned in the rpms for it to really shine though which is not always possible.. but its still the best bike i have ever owned.

Mostly depends on where you're riding. I've been to some harescrambles where you didn't need anything, just a straight mx'er works great, maybe soften some clickers. Others, you really wish you had a goaty ktm smoker trail machine. Anyway, I'd probably go with a skid plate and handguards as you've done, and maybe go up a few teeth on the rear sprocket, or however much the existing chain will allow.

Sell it, use the money to buy a 300 XC/TX

My friend rode his FC350 in the woods for a while. A flywheel weight is by far the best bang for the buck. He went up 2 teeth on the rear as well. His bike worked well in the woods and on the track...

Tomac and/or Anderson for 2020.....

Im always gonna be a 4t guy. Tried the 2t thing out last year and I didnt see any benefits over a 4t. Only thing I would want a 2t for would be if I only did tight gnarly stuff but the races and trails around here are mostly just flowy stuff with some hard stuff mixed in.

Im on 13/50 now. Thought of a fw weight but what does it honestly do on a 4t bike? Never had one before. I did have a 13oz on my 250 2t and it wouldnt stall if you tried. Also hooked a bit better since the rpms didnt go as high to “go”.

Again it depends on where you're riding, but they're great in the tight rocky stuff to keep from stalling and it's like gaining some torque. If it's not tight singletrack and you come from a mx background, I think you'd prefer to the snap of being able to spin up the motor fast.

A flywheel weight does the exact same thing to a four stroke as it does to a two stroke. Heavy flywheel = helps to increase inertia (which is why the bike is harder to stall under a heavy load or rapid deceleration). Light flywheel = decreased inertia but quicker acceleration and deceleration, which is why they are used in racing engines which are kept at relatively high RPMs.

Heavier flywheels and longer rods make a motor act like a tractor, so long as it has the displacement to move that much rotational mass.

Or you can run your idle at 9000 RPM like I used to on my KX450 in the tight single track

use the clutch and keep the RPMs up.

I have a 17 fx350. Acerbis frame grips, acerbis plastic skid plate (need something else, do not recommend), FMF titanium, Ironman sprockets, trail tech endurance ii computer, Pro circuit link, gpr v4 dampener, xtrig preload adjuster, DIV suspension, mousse tubes (with no rim locks how scandalous). I run stock bars, grips, and hand guards.

2016 350 XCF-W
Love this bike as it replaced my two previous KTM's, 520 EXC and the 250 xcf-w six days.

I like to dual sport, trail ride and also do gnarly single track.
Because this bike needed to be versatile I actually went the other way and geared it up.

Did not want to be revving the crap out of it on Dual Sport rides trying to keep up with the big bores.
It works great for that, especially on dry slick marbly surfaces. I was a bit worried that for singletrack it might be geared too tall and would have to change the gearing back.
So far so good it works great on the tight stuff too.

Fuel mileage increased also with the stock 2.2 gallon tank--able to get right around a hundred miles.

Put on a Scott's stabilizer and Bark Busters.
OEM KTM exhausts are really good but the end caps on the XCF-W and EXC can be improved.

A small company called Best Dual Sport makes a really good end cap that is less restrictive.
Had a buddy adjust the fuel mixture timing which also helps.

Haven't even needed to adjust the suspension even with a full pack of gear. Works great for what I'm doing but if I had to race it would need to stiffen the suspension for sure.

The new (maybe last 2 years?) Husky models would have to be the ugliest bikes I have ever seen. Especially the FE/TE models. They looked the best when they became white Husabergs

Dunno about ugliest but it might be the biggest change from great to bad looking between models for sure...
