He means the bike behind the mechanic. With the twin exhausts. If it's a Free Ride, it's something they don't sell here. And I have no idea what the appendage on the end of the swing arm is. Good catch OP.

I'm far more jazzed to see the new Gas Gas in MX competition. The GP model is the tits. And I'm a Beta guy.

What big changes would an enduro 300 need to work well on an mx track?
Is their a lot of internal differences between the sx and exc ktm 2 strokes?

From what I understand, and I could be very wrong, the main differences from exc to sx is the cylinder head, gear ratios, ignition, e-start, rear rim size, suspension, and tank size. I’m sure there are a few other small items that I am missing.

Its a KTM team pit bike , the bracket is a tow bar for a trailer, its used to haul stuff to and from pit lane, because nobody in europe has a golf cart or a mule at the races cos there isnt room, either in the rigs, or in the pits.

Personal preferences would decide that. Most stiffen up the springs and go for it. I prefer soft power delivery and a wide ratio gearbox so enduro setup is my preference even for track. I'm also 60 and ride about C level these days, but I preferred the same when I was one of the fast guys.

I'm no KTM expert, but I've disliked the SX's 2t's I've been on due to power delivery being too abrupt and too much shifting with a close ratio gearbox.

That Gas Gas comes stock (for a $700 premium) with Rocs triple clamps and Technical Touch hard coated KYB's. As far as I know there are very few left in the U.S.

Who cares about the Katoom? Look at that Gas Gas. If you got ride of the Craigslist sticker package that baby would look legit.
