I love seeing the R100,but im telling ya homeboy,you gotta do a rally on the X once.



My good friend Jack Splash,repersent'n the Pine Barrens.



And i gotta thank Bobby for the trailer spot,the tent was getting cold.



Love that black X.



And for bring'n my good friend Xmotos toy to him.It was a hassel,but you dont know what it meant to him,thanks again.Hes pretty quite guy,and he was worried bout the deal,and you made it all right.Means alot to the whole Team Ghetto crew.



Anytime you wanta come north and play in the rocks,ruts and roots,you got a place to stay.

Freethebeast,its always a pleasure pal.I will ask Kev what he meant so i can clear that union jack thing up.That way i dont completely sound like a tard.I wont tell anybody about the skidplate being tightened up with KTM tool's. ; )

Why go through all of that trouble when you can just put Ohlins RFS Fork kits with TTX cartridges on? Xtrig makes a triple clamp that will take a wp48 fork and you can get the KTM Ohlins RFS forks or get the Ohlins G450X specific RFS TTX fork kit (a bit more but doesn't require a fancy new fork clamp kit) If you go the WP fork conversion route you'll need to make an axle spacer and re-center a KTM front wheel instead of the factory wheel but there are a ton of used and aftermarket goodies for the KTM stuff. Just look at my Black G450X with Ohlins in the pic above this post

Come on now - no way you had such high rankings on a BMW. Surely these poorly engineered g450x aren't capable of such things.

just kidding of course !

I have the same setup on my bike. (WP48mm w/ttx cartride, xtrig and KTM front wheel & axle (I also have the WP Traxx on the rear)

Everything bolted right on its hard to image suspension getting any better than this.

I had WP with TTX inserts,.............it does get better with the whole Ohlins fork!!!! Stiction is a beatch but almost eliminated with the Ohlins. I have the 2011 KTM Ohlins RFS fork kit on my G450X and just installed the 2013 Ohlins RFS fork kit on my Husky TXC310R,,...Ohlins actually made a bunch of improvements for 2013 and it's even better, hard to believe until I actually experienced it myself.

I think that means youre moving faster than the warranty can keep up
