KTM Handguards?????

Recommended Posts

Hello,

New to KTM's. I just bought a 2001 KTM400 M/XC and wanted to put some handguards on it. I bought a pair of Cycra pro bends for

pro taper size bars and they will not fit. The stock KTM bars are wider than the pro tapers where the mounts clamp around the bars. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

John

Sorry no info on guards, but I saw your post on holeshot.Where in Cloudcrouft are you riding? Where do you start, and what trails are now best? I live in Carlsbad, N.M., rode Cloudcroft years ago(10 to 15 years ago). I was told yesterday by may dealer, my 2002 exc would be here in 1 to 2 weeks. I would like to set up for Post and Cloudcroft. Any info would help. Lubbock dealer is putting guards and skid plate on for me. e-mail rabeason@webtv.net

I've got the Acerbis Rally Pro's on my '01 520 EXC.

The bar clamps don't fit exactly right and the bend is not right for the Magura's but with a little bending & slotting of the hole for the bar clamps they work fine.

I bought aluminum handgaurds and plastic deflectors from Enduo Engineering (for my 01 520 EXC). They came with the necessary allen wrench for the gaurds, and a drill bit and self threading screws for the deflectors. Installation is clean and was very easy. I would reccomend anything from EE, as it all fits great.

Good Luck

Pretend it's flat and give it the gas.

Ya - get the right ones for your bike by Cycra they do make them for Maguras. Take em

back to were you bought them and tell them

they sold you the wrong ones. Here is some

I'm going with a high dollar route. Buy a aftermarket upper triple clamp. In my case; Scotts complete with dampener ($600.00), and then order the handgard KIT ($100.00)from Summers Racing (SRC). This will allow you to clean up your handelbars and empties your pockets to help keep you from further mods. :)

      Looking for something a little lighter and faster to supplement my xr650l and I think this bike might fit the bill. I'm hoping there are some owners here who can give me some insight into the typical experience with this bike. The question I'm most concerned about is how many hours these engines last before needing a rebuild with normal trail riding? Also, how do they handle in technical terrain? How about on the road? 
       
      The machine I'm looking at has about 75 hours and 1,500 miles on it, all stock other than a lectron carb, and comes with some dualsport lighting not installed. The current owner's asking price seems pretty high at $4500, but he seems to be a communicative, eager seller, which is practically unheard of in Upstate NY where the vast majority of dirtbikes on Craigslist are owned (or "owned") by rednecks trying to flip them. I'm willing to pay a little more than market value for this reason.
       
      Thanks for any input!

      Hi all,
      I got a set of the Axis passenger pegs to fit my 14' 500 exc. The bike does have the alloy sub-frame, but I'm curious if anyone has used this set up with success without destroying the sub-frame or their wife/gf? 
       
      Short trips like errands and rides out to the coast for hiking. 10-15 miles on the longer rides, and likely 0 miles on the highway, as she is not super stoked about riding. But our job kinda doesn't allow multiple vehicles. Yachties. Also shopping a sumo set up at the moment too. 
       
      Thanks folks!!

      Recently,I took a trip out to Colorado for some R&R on a family vacation. I brought my riding gear and had planned on renting a bike, but I was too late and at least what I looked at, there was no availability for my timeline. Bummer, since I'd not ridden the rockies in over 4 years, something pretty special when you live in flatlanderville (Florida)! 
      But, behind the scenes, a couple of TT'ers were at work! Through TT, we recently hired a fine, young gentleman to head up our advertising sales team,( @Freemotion ) and he pulled some strings with a local who had a well equipped  KTM 450XC-W that is his back-up machine. His new love is a 2019 KTM 300 TPI and it was gorgeous!
      So, a HUGE thanks to @Freemotion for greasing the skids in getting me a skoot and to @G 9.5 for generously lending out his bike to basically a stranger. The weather was great, so was the company, and the riding was epic as far as I'm concerned. I'm still a bit humbled by the generosity, so I wanted to share a story that I bet isn't as uncommon among the riding community as one might imagine.
      Dirt bike people rock! 🤘

      Hello TT peeps. I currently have an 11' Ktm 450 exc which i am converting to sumo. Still on the fence about getting cush drive rims or standard rims. Not too much info on what cush drive does for wheelies. I know its smoother on the tranny and chain but will it make much of a difference with slower wheelies/stunting? I had a DRZ with standard rims and slower wheelies were very choppy and almost impossible to control smoothly. Any advice/tips/help will be much appreciated. 
      Also.... will 5" rims be pushing it for chain rub? Should i just stick with 4.25"?
