    2017 150 XC-W Review

    Bryce I upgraded to the radius X kit when they came out. It has a lighter clutch pull. When it comes to fast hare scramble you don't know it is there. And the slow stuff it is awesome. I don't tell the other guys in my class that. I just say it ok. Slow stuff like rock gardens you can just roll over stuff in a gear higher. Hill climbing is even better! If you bobble a little you can just start from a stand still. No more stalling too, not that is a problem with a E start. I told Graham Jarvis before his class that I had one in the bike and he would still talk to me LOL. If you are not racing I would spend the money on the rekluse first before the suspension. Hope that helps.

    I don't know why a old guy like me anything heavier than the 150. Vforce, Rk Tek head, Keihin, Kreft and Rekluse does = amazing! I am done for a few weeks (broken foot)😬 But the way it is raining around here we might not have anymore races. Two have been called off already.

    FYI here is what my piston looked like after 50 hours.

    FYI Keihin jets are the same way. Look for their stamping too

    FYI my 2017 XC-W has 133 hr and 1800 miles. I put a piston kit in around every 50 HR. (Never too old) mine does not smoke that bad unless I have been putting around for a long time. I have been running 50:1 Walmat since new.

    Never Too Old I got a few years on you but as we get older we don't need the weight of a tpi 300 let alone a 500😨

    jasonh28 My dealer sent the paper work into my county and a week later I got a title and plate in the mail 😁 Just get a 12v horn and a switch and wire into the fan lead under the tank. It is 12v fuse lead that is hot all the time. I also got a brake light switch and wired in the brake LED. It is the empty lead in the tail light.

    I totally agree! The nastier the better. I am going up to the U.P. and ride the mad moose trails again. I have a Rekluse radius X and run a Michelin trial tire and that is like cheating. 😀

    So should I report them to the BBB if I can't get a hold of anyone. So I can get my money back or a set of handle bars?

    I too can't seem to get any response. I ordered mine back in June and have not heard anything. Guess I will have to call every day and fill there voice mail up.

    So tonight I got to ride my buddy's 2019 300 XC WOW I might have to get one and have 2 bikes. The air forks are not broken in yet but felt great. The motor is smooth as butter! No hits any where.
