.

Interesting sum up is that KTM/Husky now is 52,5% out of all 274 bikes that is registered here.

Only a few years ago the kx450 was the dominant bike, but now it is trailing behind quite substantially.

Interesting also that the Yammis who were considered heavy pigs (by quite a few at least) now are one of the most popular models. I am guessing it is because of quality and very few engine failures.

Keep em comin!

2015 Husqvarna FE501 with a just ordered 2018 Camso DTS kit. Any advice on set up? Do's and Don'ts? Does anyone know if Airbox mods or fork springs will be needed?

Fork springs for sure. With your bike I would say 6.0-6.2 in fork springs will take you close.

Putting on a pod filter instead of Outerwear pre filter over a cut up dry air filter is an improvement, but it all depends on the conditions you ride in etc.

Does anyone have a ktm 500 (-12 or newer) with a big bore cylinder 590, 610 or even bigger and can give me your thoughts vs uncorked ktm 500 -12? Pros and cons would be much appreciated!

For all you veteran snow bikers. I have a few 450s, was thinking of turning my dune bike into one. It's a 03 CRF 450R with full FMF exhaust, 12.5 piston, stage two hotcam, boydsen quick shot two accelerator pump, gutted air box and rev limiter removed. For those of you that have been around the block with these what are your thoughts.
I also have two new 2017 RMX 450Z that have been uncorked. Thanks
