    Tire Grooving Tips?

    I disagree, maybe the tracks are built different in Australia but on some tracks it makes a huge difference. Some tracks dont require anything but on others half the tyre looks like a wet. Depending on the groover you can bend the blades so they are angled on one side and straight on the other , giving some bite.

    Supermoto Question Help!

    Honda standard hubs are the only ones to use a 32 spoke. Talon / HAAN and other after market hubs use 36 spoke. If you by 36 spoke rims F & R and spoke kits it will lace up fine. A 5" is a better rim size as it gives increased tyre selection but is a pain to take in and out. A 4.25 is easier to take in and out but tyre choice may be a little more limited. Good luck

    Screeching From Clutch

    Hi I and several others had the exact same problem when racing SM and I dont mind saying it was a worry. It turns out that it needed a little more oil about 50 ml more than recommended. Once the extra oil was added we have never had it happen again. There are a few ideas but the full throttle, high reving and constant lean angles may have something to do with it.

  8. There are some 12mm off set clamps I found in Europe but I have seen some adjustable ones that go from 8 to 14mm as well , unsure who or where they come from. The link in europe is http://www.rs-racing.de/onlineshop.htm It is all in German but pretty easy to work out
  9. The 14mm off set are awesome for Supermoto, I bought these and if I could I would go even a little less again around 10-12mm. The clamps help get rid of chatter by increasing trail. After suspension this would be first on my list.
  10. Hi, Im setting up my 05" 450exc for supermoto racing, I have been waiting for parts from KTM , now the SXS cam and Hi-comp piston have finally arrived but the engine workshop manual was a no show. I have stripped most of it down but am unsure if the cam chain needs to be removed or if the piston can be swapped leaving it in place. I also need to know what to line up to set the cam timing. Any help would be great, or if anyone has the several pages relating to this I would be greatfull for your help. PS the racing starts next weekend so Ive only got 5 days to finish it. Cheers Ben
