Husky/KTM Axle Blocks?

Hello,
I have a 2017 Husqvarna FC450. I am wanting to replace the axle blocks with something aftermarket but I noticed when removing the axle that the block stays attached to the non-drive side of the axle. Anyone know if this side axle block is just press fit onto the axle and if a little heat/hammer will get it off? Is it by chance threaded on there...certainly not, right? Thoughts?

Thanks!

Get the Ride Engineering axle blocks. It uses a CRF450 axle and the sprocket side isn't threaded on and it makes adjusting the chain SO much easier.

Digger, on point as always regarding the KTM setup...Ride Engineering's blocks coupled with the Honda axle make everything much easier to adjust, more factory in function, and look rad too!

Thanks :-) and the whole set up the axle cost me under $100. Worth every penny because of the ease of adjusting the chain. Factory KTM uses a very similar set up with the non threaded side and my guy at KTM says they have rear shock data that shows that the rear suspension moves freer (is that even a word) with their set up.

What year Honda axles will work with the Ride blocks, or does it matter?

I think I"m going this route also, adjusting the chain is a pita, now my brake side axle block moves around when I tighten down the nut, giving me false readings when I line up the alignment lines to the half moons shapes on swingarm....this is one area KTM can improve upon....I remember reading something about chain tourqe on the rear suspension with the solid left axle block/axle....

I think it's pretty crazy, supposedly on the factory bikes use the Honda set up. Ktm needs to Address this. But $100 isn't bad for new axle and axle blocks.

I upgraded and used the Yosh blocks. Looks clean.

Can we get a group buy on Honda Ti rear axle? devil

How does anyone measure chain slack?

The manual says 55mm but it's very ambiguous where to take that measurement

Thanks

So the yosh axle blocks for the crf will fit the ktm swingarm? I have the ride engineering blocks but like the yosh.

I use a caliper to measure from the end of the plastic chain slider. I just get it close, better to be loose than tight.

Yeah I have 2015 or 2016 Yosh blocks, I think they are all the same.

Post a pic please? If you don't mind. Would like to see the difference on the bike

Hmm the yosh doesn't solve the lack of chain adjusting marks though does it? As jap manufactures have marks on the frame.

When using ride engineering crf axle on KTM's do you torque the axle bolt to KTM's manual specs or honda specs?

I have the Works Connection Elite blocks on both bikes. Does the same thing. I had problems with axle coming lose. this fixed that, plus I like using a mic to align.

What type of Loctite did you use on the axle threads, 2701 or 271?
