I know these bikes already handle really well but just wondering what upgrades people have done that have made the most impact ?

Interested to hear people’s comments etc

I’ve done suspension.

Ride Engineering performance link helps a lot with the rear end swapping into rough turns and track better down long rough straights. Out front Cone Valves are the best upgrade. Second to that would be the CRF steering damper. Those are the only chassis mods I've done and it was well worth it.

The biggest thing is getting your suspension balence first. Correct sag. Then tuning your suspension. If you have the money, a set of KYB or cone valve forks transform the bike.

A Vortex ECU from Twisted makes the bike incredibly easy to ride. Connects the throttle even more.

Make sure all bolts are torqued correct, especially the triple clamps. You can -5nm of the swingarm can help with softening up the bike if you need. -3 to 5nm torque on the engine mounts.

I believe that the CRF axle and axle blocks helps free up the rear end.

On the KTM it’s a lot of little things that add up like I’ve wrote above to make the bike work better.

I’ve just ordered a set of the factory triple clamps for my 350 which I’ve heard are quite an improvement with the added rigidity up front on the new frame, and I think the 20 mm offset option will be nice on some of my local tracks cool unfortunately will likely not be able to test them for a few months :/

I bought a 350 FC 2019 a month ago and here is the list of my futurs mods:

- Luxon MX Linkage knuckle
- FCP Mounts
- CRF Rear Axle
- Xtrig triple clamp
- KYB Factory Fork and Shock

I bought everything exept the fork, i need to find a good deal on the fork (Anybody knows where maybe?) and i think i'll have a complete package for a nice handling bike.

Also, i will add a set of Michelin Starcross Soft as i did read the front is better at lean in.

Assuming you actually are in France, this is a no brainer:
