    2016 foot pegs springs suck

    Installed incorrectly. MX Action did an article on this. I got free springs from the dealer.

    17 350 transmission?

    The 16/17 tranny is hard to put in neutral while the bike is running but this is on purpose so you don't accidently shift into neutral on the trail/track or in mid air. When the bike is off it is super easy. I think TWMX or RacerX did an article on this.

    best lithium battery for ktm

    WPS Battery. So light and way more CCA. Love it so far. 60 hours into my 2016 KTM 450 SXF bike.
  4. I have come to the conclusion to try Rotella T or Rotella T6. The T6 is a synthetic or a semi?
  5. Are you implying that you should only be buying the most expensive Motorex oil? I was under the assumption any synthetic JASO MA and API SL/SM/SG oil would work.
  6. Would the Shell Rotella T4 and T6 work?
  7. Shell Rotella T Triple Protection in 15W40. Thanks! I will give it a shot.
  8. Hi Monk! Thanks for the feedback. Is it Rotella T, T1,T4, T5 or T6? All appear to come in White 4 Litre (1 Gallon) bottles from a quick google. I am a fan of these oils since it is widely available and often at a great price.
  9. Just looking for ALTERNATIVE engine oils that are SAFE to use in the newer 2016/2017 engines. The Motorex stuff is great but it comes at a super premium price. Wondering if per say Shell Rotella T6 or something along those lines would be acceptable. Fully Synthetic. Not sure if I need the Esters or whatever some oil companies advertise. JASO MA certified would be ideal as that is what Motorex is I believe. Again I am not asking what is the best oil. I am asking what are some safe to use alternatives to the Motorex oils. Thanks guys. Loving this 16' 450SXF. Best bike I have ever owned/ridden (except for maybe the forks).

    '17 350 is 58hp?

    They advertise it ont he site guys. Power is prolly at the crank but still better than a Honda 450. "CYLINDER HEAD The cylinder head features dual overhead camshafts with friction-optimized finger followers boasting a DLC coating and high-flow ports. Four lightweight titanium valves maximize intake and exhaust flow for an optimal power band and outstanding performance across the seemingly endless 13,400rpm rev range with power peaking at 58hp. New lateral brackets now made of aluminum instead of steel allow an efficient fixation of the engine to the frame and cut any excess weight."

    YZ450FX Startig Issues

    I have heard. Only heard that the Shorais do not like to be drawn down unlike a lead acid battery. Maybe that is what happened with the fan?
  13. I was a little more conservative and set it 50 in lbs (under the manuals stated 52 in lbs. Not too tight but def. not too loose. I agree, what a handy tool at a far better price.

    Your Next "Must Have" KTM Performance Mod?

    No videos of them in use or showing the technical functionality. No reviews. Going to have to wait.
