    Motorcycle Suspension Tuners: Stillwell or LT?

    I'm going with Enduro Spec MXT cartridge inserts ... '16 250RR. Because they simply insert and replace the internals (using stock springs) it potentially saves some down time and cost too. Hope to report back soon! https://www.endurospec.com/store/p30/MXT%2FEnduro_Spec_Sachs_Cartridge_System.html

    ALTA Redshift EX. The electric off-road weapon

    2017 Alta Redshift electric MX bike

    Awesome! What is the longest distance of "average" trail riding an Alta will go? I mean having fun and twisting the power for sure but not "race pace"... many dual sport events in my area go about 70 miles to halfway break which would be a potential opportunity to charge it, if it would make it that far...?

    What would a 30hp Alta weigh?

    So what is the longest distance range anybody has achieved on a fully charged Alta?

    ALTA Redshift EX. The electric off-road weapon

    I'm eager to get one! Is the range better or worse than advertised for the average trail rider (not racing)? Many dual sport events go about 70 miles to lunch or "gas"... the articles claim 40 - 60 for electric... do I stash a generator at the midpoint and conserve or is 70 miles on a full charge impossible?

    Replacement wheels

    KTM rear wheel should fit but with cut spacers down about 1mm each side and using Beta brake disc. The KTM front seemed to fit fine... but don't hold me to that as I haven't run it much for prolonged use. Test for yourself.
