  1. Yes,it's a terrible design that you would expect on a cheap chinese branded bike. Ktm aren't big enough to man up and admit it's a issue and tell dealers to fix them before they leave the showroom,piss poor imo. Only us having other bike manufacturers like sherco and beta making good bikes will force their hand into us seeing less of these ridiculous issues in future years,here's hoping.
  2. Power valve leak fixed 3 times? They must be using the incorrect silicone type or not using enough,use heaps. These oil leaks are a 2020 Standard feature on ktm/s,terrible engineering design that should be done at PD by all dealers before the bike is ridden. Hopefully the 21's are rectified and don't leak.
  3. Yeh mate they ride well,bit different in the engine department then the beta but the tpi bikes are so smooth and almost ride themselves. Tpi's are the best running bikes out of the box of any bike i've owned or ridden,especially the 250 it runs amazing,cold,hot,anywhere. 300 tpi is better option for hard enduro so you made the right choice there.Be particular and clean with your fuel,filling up the oil tank/fuel tank and your airfilter maintainance and you'll be ok. Mesage me if you're unsure on anything,glad to help if needed. Enjoy.
  4. Very nice mate,congratulations.. I'm a bit surprised you didn't go with the hard enduro water friendly sherco package.
  5. Great stuff guys,hoping to catch up for a ride with you all soon.So hard to ride after a extended break off the bike but so awesome to be back out there in the bush.
  6. Taylor has always had the best gear from a very young age mate.He keeps his kyb equipped yamahas for only 30hrs.
  7. Sorry to here this Rossco,hope all goes well in hospital and wish Mick a troublefree speedy recovery.
  8. Riders vary in what they like but usually on the side of firm the faster they are. Jumps are designed to land in the same place for all riders but the better riders and pro's scrub low and early on the upramp to gain track speed without overjumping and they land correctly on the throttle with excellent timing so they can actually put less force on the suspension on landings then lesser riders. Supercross is harder on suspension and they need firmness in bumpy corners,under hard braking and whoops to stop packing and when the track roughs up late in the moto. Yes,so generally a pro setup will
  9. Yeh,it's very tough after a break and being over 50 doesn't make it any easier.Hows the legs and arms and shoulders,burn is an understatement.Didn't see any deer so maybe they have been hit by hunters,i seen a few sneaky markers here and there.Plenty of fish jumping in the shallows along the bank but could be carp?
  10. Just got back late last night,same as usual and water is well up. Jay,enjoy the riding and you can acess the 3 hillclimbs now.
  11. Awesome stuff Twisti. My brother recently had his crf450x serviced and given the once over and he was also very happy with the work. Nothing is an issue and they offer excellent service at Moto Melbourne.
  12. Awesome mate. Just take it easy and start on easier flowing trails. No mega hillclimbs or creek riding at your uncles property for a while till it strengthens. Those braces are great for some extra support and are the same as i use.
  13. If you have been fighting it for a year then you need to do something different then what you've been doing.It ain't going away if you continue as you are. I've had 3 knee related operations (not an acl) and 2 of them both required 5mths off work and solid psysio and commitment by myself. I could of gone back earlier but due to the nature of my job and the long hours required, time was the best thing to give me the best outcome so thats the way i went. Research and seek some professional advice and then make an educated decision on which way you want to go. Your knee will need to be managed fo
  14. Ring of steel gone and no masks for open spacers when alone but a mask has to be carried is the word. Camping is looking good with social distancing. Have fun and be safe guys,it's going to be busy.
  15. Definately not stock bikes. I've seen injectors in different locations hidden away on some bikes. I think the iron class is acheivable for the better trailriderz that are fit. If you're not fit,i don't know why you would even bother entering,just a lack of knowledge of what is required and stupidity.Atom would be good for the adventure and experience but you wouldn't want to much rain or it'd be kaos and hightailing around some of the good bits may be required.
