  1. Just ride it respectfully for the first hour. Then dump the oil and ride it like you would ride any other bike out there.
  2. Was that Jilg on the 49A?
  3. I want the 125...would be a spectacular bike to beat around on...
  4. EFI on dirtbikes is a very basic open loop system. It's does not adjust 100% to altitude... That being said, unless the jump in elevation was 5000+ in a single ride I wouldn't worry about it...
  5. Your cornering is terrible, so terrible...
  6. Well I would go with the opinion of you regular and local crew. If they say the 350 would fit you better they might be right. As for the AER forks, I think they are great forks and don't need the conversion...
  7. I would agree... But I couldn't see why KTM couldn't sell a $20k bike in the future that has CV forks/Traxx shock, exhaust etc etc. Much like Betas 'BYOB'. Never understood why a manufacturer doesn't sell a bare stock bike and you can just add upgrades. Say it comes with cheap forks, steel sprockets, cheap chain, silver cheap wheels, black small gas tank, basic graphics and seat cover, cheap bars, cheap brake pads and rotors, cast hubs, standard battery, etc... Let's you get into a bike for say $7k or less and if you want better you just upgrade...
  8. http://m.vitalmx.com/forums/Moto-Related,20/Ryno-Power-vs-Hammer-Nutrition,1319582 Just a coincidence... Funny...
  9. Ahhh, that would clear a few things up. Makes sense to what I was thinking..
  10. I really like the engine, I really the KTM chassis too. If I could 'wish' one thing it would be to move the power down about 15% to offer just a bit more torque/off idle performance. I've read posts of guys really liking the 380 kits available but who knows how reliable the report is and I don't see many follow ups after the initial reports...
  11. I'm saying our terrain, and especially my practice loop is extremely difficult. The power and inertia that the 450 makes are overwhelming. Even some of the best riders I ride and train with (pros included) don't ride a 450 simply because they are too much of everything... Being subjective, you and your 450 is perfect for your skill level and terrain. But in my area, even if your skill level is good, the 450 is generally too much...
  12. Mid range, make traction not noise...
  13. Oh I know. Probably why I've stayed away from the Desert 100. But I like going fast, it's just the consequences of a get off that scare me... I know Trystan who's won two this year. He's mentioned the speed but still not as fast as some of the rounds on years past...
  14. At about the 12min on my practice loop and you would be pulling your tongue out of the rear spokes... It's simple to say it's 'not a challenge to throw around or handle" as long as you stick with what you are comfortable at. Outside of that, you wouldn't like your 450 very much riding with a group like mine... It's why ALL of them don't ride 450s...
  15. For sure...When I look at a 350, I see a 'in between' bike. It's why I say it's hard to ride because you can can't lug it like a 450f, or rev it like a 250f...It took me about 40-50 (or more) hours of riding to learn how to ride the bike efficiently... Great great motor, but just so different from the "norm' of what has been offered to the public...
