Turning radius

Recommended Posts

I noticed my 2015 300RR does not turn nearly as sharp as my 2015 Husky TE250. I didn't notice until I had the 250. I put on the aftermarket Myler radiators. Are these thicker than stock(which I don't have anymore to compare)? I have the stop bolts removed on the husky but the beta there's no point because the forks are just a hair away from the radiator with the bolts in.

 

Can you take out your stopbolts without the forks touching the radiator on the stock radiator? I like extreme enduro and it helps to go full lock.

The Myler's are way thicker than stock and I actually had to adjust the stops out from stock when I put them on. For extreme enduro work, master the pivot turn. It's my go-to for any turn that would normally be a full lock turn...quite a bit quicker once you get good at it.

oh good, not just mine then.

first thing i noticed in the backyard was i could do a figure 8 easy on my old 06 ktm 525. my beta 300 wont do it. i feel the trade-off is worth it for everything else this geo does well.

For real tight the xtrainer turns tighter...for the tight in between the trees guys like the xtrainer better. ..but overall I don't notice a problem with my 300rr. I'm more liking some extreme riding too. I have some chinese ebay bigger volume radiators to put on my 300 rr too..and know that turning radius might be an issue. . I'm thinking I jumped the gun and don't need the bigger radiators as my setup with the fan and overflow tank and higher pres. rad cap has it good to go. I don't see more turning radius available now.. I forget if I took off the bolts for a tad more turning or not..

I removed the nuts on my steering stops but as a results had to chop up a bit off the top of my radiator guards to gain clearance with the forks.  Gained back the range i felt was missing from the factory.

I definitely love the pivot turnIMG_2722.JPG but pivot turns on off-camber turning downhill is not something most do. We practice trials and you know how far the bars will turn on a trials bike. My husky was very similar to that. What happened in the pic was a result of not being able to turn any further left. The husky had no problem here.
