    2017 XC300 general thoughts and parts intel

    got my new 2017 KTM 300xc the day after hernia surgery. so plenty of time to try out and install parts. so far; 1) Acerbis carbon fiber front disc guard fits perfect. 2) Trail tech fan. (same as 2016 350 xc-f) 3) Bullet proof designs radiator guards, shark fin, and swingarm protector. 4) TM designs skid plate & slide and glide kit. 5) FMF Gnarly pipe. (was told another week for turbinecore II spark arrester.) 6) acerbis x-factor hand guards. 7) Tubliss front and rear still waiting for scotts performance to cnc damper mount and BRP handle bar mount. I have found that for chassis components referring to a 2016 KTM 350xc-f will fit on the new 300xc. hopefully another 10 days and I can finally go ride!!

  5. Yes the normal turnaround was 3 days, but, with the coatings being done in japan and then the revalve in Scottsdale, it takes 3 to 4 weeks. I asked if he had cores and I was told, forks rarely come in brand new and unused (because of nicks & scratches) that he could not do exchanges. Just fortunate that I have 2 other ktm’s to ride
  6. it would be a pleasure to show you our riding areas, and yes I can and will ride this wknd. my normal group includes a couple of novices to "A" vet riders. we only go as fast as our slowest rider for safety and all new friends are welcome! whatever your plans are, have a great time!

    2011 sxf exhaust

    I have a 2011 250 xc-f, same motor. I just put a full titanium fmf pipe on my bike. Had a hard time getting the header. I was told that the bend was more downward, because of the clearance between the front wheel at full compression and the header. Maybe a different rake for that year?
  8. I just sent my forks and shock to Stillwell for their “A kit”. Setting it up for moto x. I am using this bike for mostly track, but, with clicker adjustments it can be tolerable for singe track and desert riding. The only problem is that it takes 3 to 4 weeks before I get my suspension back! So now my 2016 450sxf is sitting till it’s finished. After that I’m sending my 2015 350 suspensions out to stillwell for a more desert / single track suspension.
  9. As a rider in northern Nevada I can tell you that this week we are going to lose a lot of riding areas due to impending snow storms. We have a little snow now. We can only ride 2 track trails in the woods at this time. But the lower desert areas are still open and rideable. I’ve enjoyed reading your adventure with your 2011 Ktm. If you want a more detailed riding report you can pm me.
  10. I too have been waiting on responses to this question. I’m still on the fence for a Stillwell or Kreft suspension. My 2016 450 sxf needs to be lowered 2 inches as well as a better fork and shock set up. This bike will be a dedicated track bike until the 17’s come out, than it will be turned into a desert racer. Can I get a suspension that can handle both mx & desert?

    16 450 SXF MIA

    I finally picked up my 2016 450sxf!! Yeah!! This will be my third new KTM this year. I pulled both wheels off to check the grease level, and surprised that there was more grease on these bearings than the other 2 combined, nice surprise! Spent Saturday torqueing every nut and bolt and all were in spec, another surprise! Also added a Hardline hour/tach meter. Sunday woke up to a snow storm, bummed. Debated whether or not to go out anyways, snow, mud, brand new bike…. I couldn’t do it. So today I dropped it off at Met-Tec. Those guys are awesome, Dirk and Kevin. They wanted my bike so that they could take measurements of all the new 2016 450sxf nuts, bolts & axles. So if any of you order any kits from them they will be accurate. Kevin let me hold a factory requested axle, WOW, I have pens that weigh more than that axle! I won’t get the bike back until Thursday, and on Friday I send out my forks and shock for rework and coatings. This is said to take approx. 3 weeks. So I guess it’s still MIA.
