Chris,
nah not a racing class thing at all. I think I like to make things harder on myself so I tend to ride bikes that are a bitch to ride fast?

Rob,
bro.. that KTM lay your bike on the side to do a oil change thing has to stop. What the shit is that? Although the valve adjustment was easy enough even to a don't know how to find the right TDC because stupid 4 strokes make power every other stroke fool like myself. I think I miss roadracing already hahahahaha

Joe,
you KNOW mine starts

Bah!

Its a dirtbike. Throw it on its side. I like that fact that the oil system is overbuilt.

and its not hard to ride fast at all. I actually find the KTM SMRs easier to ride fast than just about anything i've ridden. If you really want to make things hard on yourself, get a DRZ.

you need a drz then
about the same power as a 250, and about 75 lbs heavier

other than the recent no-starting issue, I love the ktm. it handles better than any other sumo bike I've ridden, and doesn't feel much heavier than a 250. the oil changes are pretty messy though with how they have the filters tucked in there.

It gets easier. Now that I've done it a few dozen times, I don't spill but a few drops.
I makie a bigger mess changing the oil on my Tundra. Now That filter is impossible to remove without spilling massive quantities of oil all over the driveway. Whenever I do a change, the supply list include oil, filter, and kitty litter. true story.

okay who wants to buy my 2006 KTM 450 SMR? 2.7 hours on the bike. I rode it for 5 sessions at Norway like a pooooosie. $5,200 the way I bought it as this is just under what it cost me to buy and bring to Chicago. It has cycra probends with spare sliders, KTM hardparts exhaust guard, KTM clutch reservoir cover, and KTM hour meter. If you want it with everything I bought for it, it'll be $5,550. It includes the KTM stand, STR fuel screw, KTM clutch slave guard,KTM axel sliders front and rear, KTM peg sliders, KTM bar pad, KTM catch can, TZ250 overflow bottle, Ti subframe bolts, Ti front caliper bolts, Ti rear shock bolts, 2 clutch cover gaskets, 4 valve cover gaskets, 2 water pump gaskets, 3 new sets of hiflo oil filters, 1 new twin air filter and a spare rear axel. It's fully safety wired and ready to go. Performed first oil change and valve adjustment. Of course it comes with the toolkit and all the booklets in the gay ass case. It also has a clear mso. The prices are FIRM. Not 100% sure if I want to get rid of it but if someone here wants it, I'll more than likely let it go.

he's a sissy and so are you for being afraid of him. Just eat your home cooked meals and you can easily whip his ass.

I've seen him do it. It wasn't a pony or anything he bench pressed a fuckin Clydesdale. Bill is on call as the jack for Anheuser-Busch.
