    2010 ktm 450

    well just brought a 450 ktm again , last one i had was 08 wots the low down , wot have people been doing to them to make them better rode it sun for 1st time and its fairly good , just need to sort suspension out and i think ill be good to go
  2. i got a tec touch rear shock on my 09 yzf and run 5x .30s on the reb , works good for me
  3. been playing a little with a set of these my take is i think the bushes in the spring side will wear out quick as there is only a little oil in there fork spring proload is important on these forks , more than others i think
