Grooves Milled on side of upper Forks

Recommended Posts

The KTM Forks on my `17 SX-F have milled grooves on the side on the upper end of the fork legs. My bike came from dealership with top edge of the upper triple clamp flush with the 2nd grooved milled line. My assumption is each line is a mm representation? What is the measurement at each milled groove?

I think they are spaced 2.5 mm apart.  Starting at 2.5mm for the first line, then 5mm for the second, and 7.5mm for the third....

If you race set the fork tops flush for sand and down as far as third ring for hard pack. Or just leave them as they are

I have 10 mm of the silver fork leg showing on mine.  That's roughly 2.5mm below the third line. I think it feels better more planted than the third line. I ride on dry hard pack.
