Remember when his Suzuki wouldn't start before the moto a few years ago?

His KTM 450SX doesn't even have a place for a kick starter on the engine cases. I think that is on the production bikes starting in 2013 as well.

That's not a motocross track, it's just a long, dusty supercross track.
Terrible.
Spectators are going to be miserable!

I was debating if I should bring my camera to Redbud this year, but my daughter wanted a few pictures of her favorite riders. So I thought I would have some fun and go old school. All I took was the camera, one battery, one CF card and a 300mm f4 lens, and a 1.4 converter. Turned off the AF, single shot mode, and did NO chimping. I was going to tape out the screen but still needed to see some menu stuff. It was hard to not chimp and just trust you where getting the right exposure and focus. No post work or cropping.

Here are the 250's. 450's maybe tomorrow.

They have taken away the option with new cases. Maybe it was just the Dungey Replica in 2013, but now all of the 450SXs and I just saw where also the 4TXCs have lost the option for the new bikes coming out.

I can't believe his bike didn't start. I lost my kickstart lever in Moab on my old '07 525 and didn't bother replacing it for over a year!
My current electric start 300 must have turned that bike over a zillion times with all original parts.

these bikes have enough electronics on board to communicate with a laptop so it may not be as simple as the E start not working. He may have stalled it OR it may have glitched, quit, and whatever caused that also made a restart not possible.

Nice foto's. Its interesting to see the different ways and fingers used to operate the clutch and brake.

OK, but it wouldn't make me want to run out and buy one if I saw that on TV!?

Maybe we should let them finish building before shitting all over the effort to bring another racetrack to the country.

Thats not the style around here. Around here it's shit-on first, ask questions later.

KTM said when the bike got back to the pits it fired right up and everything tested out with no problems. I hate that shit.

And for those of us who just point and shoot with whatever we have, what exactly is "chimping"?
