    Are all bikes this fragile?

    Seems like bad luck, 140 hours of hard abuse racing XC and enduro on my 2017 TX300 and havent experienced any of that. I just have crappy side panel/body wear caused by my boots from it being too wide at the bottom of the number plates/sub frame

Fuel economy is OK but not as good as my Lectron, nor do I expect it to be.

    Considering a TE300...

    2017 model year KTM/husq 2 stroke motors: idler gear for kick starter is mounted on a boss that isnt very well reinforced with a short bolt, resulting in the boss being snapped from the engine case during and poorly executed kick start (panic flailing). 2018+ model year features a reinforced boss with longer bolt to remedy the issue. FWIW my 17 TX300 hasnt suffered the broken boss, but I rarely kick start and when I do its with extreme diligence to take up slack and execute a smooth kick.

    Husky over the Orange bikes

    Husky over the Orange bikes

    This was a direct misinformation I was given from both my local husky and Ktm dealers then. This may be the reason such dealers still exist. Perhaps the “both under one roof policy” is for dealers attempting to acquire both brands now This was a direct misinformation I was given from both my local husky and Ktm dealers then.

    Want to put te300 motor in tc250 frame

    So no matter what the te300 2014/2015 2stroke motors will bolt straight into any husky or ktm frame?? From 2007 model and up correct?? Nay, Husky only came on board with the Autrians at the 2014 model year. Before 2014 the husky was built in.... Italy? I believe? By a company other than KTM. BMW maybe? My history is foggy at this point

    Husky over the Orange bikes

    KTM and Husky are not allowed to be sold in the same dealership, a policy that came down from Austria. Also Husky is intended to be a premier brand with more standard features, and a higher price tag. Go with which ever has a dealer nearby with COMPETENT support at the parts counter.
  10. My bike: 2017 TX300 I have to be honest, I REALLY REALLY dislike the side number plates/air box covers. They're too fat and wide, they wear HORRIBLY and cannot keep a new graphics set in tact for one ride. All the guys I ride with on KTMs are able to keep their side panels clean and scuff free for the most part. They're more narrow in the rear end and dont suffer from the same boot/leg rub. My plastics wear right through in under a season, and are worn through the new graphics in one ride. I'm going to propose a solution and I'm coming to the TT community to tell me if I've missed anything: A KTM rear end conversion (and probably whole white plastic kit to match the angles and overall look). Use the following 2017 KTM 300 XC parts: "79003002000 SUBFRAME 2016" (as far as I can tell the main frames between the Husq [5540300110028 FRAME ''554Q4'' WHITE] and KTM [5540300110033 FRAME ''554Q4'' BLACK] are identical except the paint color, so this subframe should bolt right up, what do you guys think?) "7900600100028 AIR BOX BOTTOM" "7900600700028 FILTERBOX SIDE" "7900600101028 FILTER BOX FRONT PART" "5560701303399 FUEL TANK CPL. EXC 17" "79007040400 SEAT SX 17" (Would likely pick up a better aftermarket or factory seat anyways) Here are links to the parts fiche that I used as my source: KTM: https://sparepartsfinder.ktm.com/Result/ExecuteSearch?modelIdentification=1000752507&isEngine=False Husq:https://sparepartsfinder.husqvarna-motorcycles.com/Result/ExecuteSearch?modelIdentification=1000735915&isEngine=False Obviously this is a pretty unique and expensive solution. I love the bike and have no plans to sell any time soon. I also have a fair bit into it already and I like that it's a Husqy and not a KTM like 95% of the bikes on the line at my local series. That said, the fat rear end of the bike is a PITA to live with and the ktm has a much tighter bum =P Comment below. Did I miss some thing crucial? Do you see fitment issues anywhere that I've missed? Am I a complete kook who is out to lunch and should crawl under a rock? Let me know!
  11. Ohhhh I see, the S4 comes stock in the later models. Makes total sense as mine was an R8. thanks for the replies fellas. This app is fantastic, thanks so much for sharing it!

    TE150 vs TE300 vs TX300

    I have both: TX300 for racing, TE150 for practice. The 300 is easy to ride and allows you be lazy and save energy. The 150 has all the power I need to ride single track at a very fast pace, but requires you to be more accurate with gear selection and corner speed. I ride the 150 to develop skills. I race the 300 to make life easier on what is otherwise the hardest possible day on a bike. If I had to choose just one bike, it would be the 300. That said, the 150 can do everything I ask it to do, albeit requiring more precision and thus making me a better rider.

    New 2019 te 150 on the way

    carb and proper suspension spring rates mine ran like a bag of hammers until I did all the GJ mods and got the jetting sorted.... also jet block gasket and float height, mine were both out to lunch from the start. jd kit isnt needed if you follow the jarvis mods. takes a little more elbow grease but mine sings now

    2018 TE 150. How fat is too fat?

    Thats a good point too. The sag would end up needing to be re set each time as well..

    2018 TE 150. How fat is too fat?

    Hell yea, thats what I had in my mind too. If I can learn to go fast and keep good momentum in corners and over obstacles then when I hop over to my 300 I might even be faster for race day. Edit; also I was thinking i could likely just swap my suspension between the bikes, that way I keep the stock stuff (which we have sprung for her 120lb body weight) ready to roll for her when we do get a chance to ride out together. I wonder how my AER setup would feel on that bike. Ive got it absolutely dialed for my 300, I assume it should translate well...
