That idea is great!

Too bad I already spent the cash on all that other junk to make it work.

But now I know what to do when I crap out the stock axle nuts. Then I will have less to carry in the tool roll on rides.

Do you have a KTM part number for the axle nuts? Thanks!

Sorry I don't have the part number, but it is the REAR nut from a 450 EXC 07 that I used - AU$12.50 in Australia each.

Lower Shock Bolt

I am about to change out my air shock on my X-Challenge. Any secrets to getting that allen bolt out of the swing arm before I screw something up. Do you heat it somewhere or ? I put a long allen socket on it but it will not budge. I don't want to bugger up the allen so any tricks would be appreciated.

Thanks

So we need one of each of the above for each axle (two in total)...that's it? and we're 26mm f/r?

Yo Pork Chop,

Mine came right out with my 1/2" air impact wrench. That initial jolt is what you need.

Goodluck and Merry Christmas,

Did you look at the bolt after it came out, any thread lock on it?

Nearly right! You need two of the rear axle bolts and you end up 27mm front and rear!

Handgards, KTM OEM $49.00 US

Has anyone used KTM Black Cheapie handgards? No Alum inserts in them but good brush and chill protection. I use them on most every bike including my street fighter 1 ltr bikes. I wanta use them on the xmoto.

http://www.ktmtwins.com/950superendu...207910030.html

They fit 1 1/8 fatty's and standard 7/8. (Adaptors for each). I just don't know if the BMW's controls/function controls will be in the way.

not sure if these are exactly the same - but the guy says they are KTM guards, and obviously this is an X-Country not a Challenge, but still thought this may help
