    I've added over $4k of modifications to this cycle shortly after purchasing it.
    I'm intending this cycle to be a dual sport in purpose, and a USA BDR rider in particular.
    So, it will see freeway roads and speeds in excess of 75 MPH with hours of seat time slabbing it. It will also see sketchy two track and possible some single track, mud and for sure, some deep sand.
    So, *lots* of different conditions will be in view during the build, and as you consider the mods I make, please keep in mind my purpose for this cycle. Everything is a trade off, a compromise. Including cost. For instance, I did not / will not add a Rally tower or Rally type lighting. It's just too darned expensive for my purpose. But, I *am* big on protecting the cycle from hits and drops. So, I build out a layered approach to protection, with an eye on weight since I'll have to pick it up when I drop it. I'm also big on protecting *me* in these various environments. I can do something about the (my) body protection with various clothing armor pieces. I try to be seen, too. So, I'm big on lighting up the front, back and sides because drivers need to see me as best as I can make that happen. Sure, BDR riding does not need all that lighting. But, getting there and connecting the trail bits via roads *does* need it. So, it's on there.
    I referenced a lot of other folk's builds, picking out the pieces that I thought would be beneficial without adding too much weight, cost, or just too "blingy" for my taste. Kudos to Rocky Mountain ATV.com, and ADVPulse.com for their build descriptions. I also bought from KTM Twins.com, but I'm not very happy with that experience (returns take forever, and they dinged me for a lot of cash, for doing it). Probably not buying from them, if I can help it, anymore.
    Have a look...

    Street legal in AZ, this 450SXF. Started with trail ready, kept going to full street legal. Easy to get plated in AZ. Pain in the ass and expensive to do all this on MX bike, but mad fun to have the 450SXF on the trails, open desert and bush.

    Very light and nimble, great ergos, inspires confidence and makes you want to ride every day. The versatility of the bike is almost unbelievable considering it's only a 150. It has great low end grunt, a midrange that is all about maintaining traction, and a top end that will shock your buddies on bigger bikes. It can be ridden off the pipe with great effectiveness (especially helpful on those slippery days) or it can be ridden like a rocket on the pipe. It resists stalling as well as any bike I've ever owned...and I've owned a LOT! I get 3.5 hours of moderately hard riding per tank of fuel, so the range is among the best in the business.
    Now the bad news. As delivered the bike does have a couple of serious flaws, but they are easily fixed. The stock reed cage is junk. Replace it immediately with a V-force or Boyesen and you'll never have another worry. The progressive stock power valve spring is not well liked, and most guys replace it with the alternate straight-rate yellow spring. Some even prefer the red spring (from the 250/300's). Once you address the above items (and I recommend doing both before moving on to the next issue) you will still find that the jetting is horribly rich. This MUST be corrected early or you will be buying lots of spark plugs. Don't worry, the Mikuni is a great carb, it just needs to be jetted correctly. Once done you will be rewarded with phenomenal performance.

    Great bike...went from DRZ400e to smaller but great woods bike. Even held its own at Glamis, Imperial sand dunes. Smooth power for offroad, and after air/fuel upgrades even smoother and more responsive. Easier to start too!

    Good bike but requires a lot of maintenance and is more fragile than the YZ

    Awesome bike, great suspension right out of the box. Easy to work on. Excellent low end grunt and it still turns in to a rocket with a little twist of the wrist.

    The wheel set in my pic is from when I first got her. DNA X Racing rims. I don't remember what that HAMMERED front tire was (and I took it to the threads), but, now it's a Bridgestone Battlax rs10. Rear as bought, Pirelli Sport Deamon. I also got a set of dirt rims. As of today, they had desert knobbies, now going back to the seller, my beastie bestie friend Chris. Anywhoo, I don't want her as a straight dirt or motard. So, I just mounted a pair of Karoo 3 tires on them... yet to roll on em. During the handmount, I think... know I pinched the front's friggin brand new tube.... ahhhhhh... that's what tomorrow's for. Still waiting for the lithium to show up (warranty replacement, wonky reason that I have never seen. Freak cell. But I still want to run the replacement battery AND get one for my SuperHawk... I'll get one that fit's the holder on that bike too, overkill but hell, this small one started the SH with NO problem!!! And no, running the SH with the KTM batt diin't kill it. MFG verified.)... Firepower featherweight lithium battery... I bought via dimensions and it barely squeezes into the holder. AWESOME 240 CCAs!!!... #490-2529 https://www.firepowerparts.com/product/featherweight-lithium-battery/50983 ... but, it does fit nice and tight!!!! Next... fix that BRAND NEW TUBE... fit the new Tusk handguards... RIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great First Edition of the Factory Edition, HOWEVER, KTM should have put more upgraded parts from the factory to make this bike more unique...

    I'd give it a five star if it wasn't for all the problems it had to begin with. Poorly tuned and a defective fuel pump from the get-go. Too bad KTM wasn't on top of it.

    This bike rocks because KTM gave it so many letters. The more letters, the more horsepower. So, this thing has like 600 I think.

    My previous bike was a 2016 KTM 250 XC-W. The 250cc two stroke just works for me, so it is no surprise that the 2017 model fits me like a glove. 6 hours done and the following things stand out:
    The motor - smooth and with almost no vibrations. It also needs less clutch work than the 2017 model and seems less prone to stalling.
    The size - the bike feels much smaller and compact than the previous model. I'm 5'8" and feel much more able to boss the bike around.
    The handling - the bike reacts very well to steering inputs and remains planted at speed and whilst going slowly
    The components - the clutch is light. The tires are good. The plastics are tough. The saddle is comfy.
    And the downsides:
    Suspension is soft. I'm 77kg (170lbs) without gear and I'll probably need the next stiffer springs
    The carb is unknown amoungst KTM owners and is not as easy to set up as the old Keihin.
    The reeds don't seal 100%. I sanded the cage and got the reeds to seal a bit better. Makes a big difference.
    So far I a really liking this bike. Some suspension work, maybe a Lectron carb and some vForce4 reeds and it'll be perfect
