You are right on both accounts.

Look at the new Alpine Stars chest protectors, there neckbrace compatible, flow alot of air and offer the most protection IMHO.

I have one. I bought it at the end of 2011 and have never ridden without it since. I don't find it too constricting. Yes, it can get hot on really hot days. In cooler weather I wear an under armor shirt under it. Hotter days I wear it right on my skin. Sure, riding without it would be cooler and more comfortable but I'm confident the jacket has saved me a lot of pain and injury (I fall a lot).

I run it through the washing machine after nearly every ride. So far it is still holding up remarkably well.

The actuality was that the problem was a torque limiting gear between the starter and the flywheel was manufactured improperly. The torque limiter did not properly slip, so if the bike back fired during e-start, it would sheer the keyway on the flywheel ans crank.

All this was fixed the following year in 2004. You can easily spot the difference by the cover over the starter. In 2003 it was flat, and in 2004 it bumps out about a 1/2" and has a slight cone shape to it.

Shame your buddy didn't know this. To fix a 2003 bike was about 100$ in parts.

OK so what other problems does my bike have that I haven't already spent countless hours reading about online?

Shall I report in on the post-rfs ktm engine oil migration issue? Or how honda crf-r bikes valve trains and cranks suck? How about how ktm made the 500 auto decompression exhaust cam wrong, causing all sorts of issues.

I may spend a few minutes a day reading up on lots of issues.

Coffee time suckas.

You picked a solid bike Andrew...by most accounts the WR is known for its reliability

Yup. I'm not worried. And I don't own a Kayak, so KTM's are just outa the question for me.

Alright, what is with KTM these days. Now they sell sneakers? They a dirt bike company or a fashion company?

I have them!

When you spend 15k on a new ktm pen they give you a free motorcycle! Now that's good business

And they are workshop shoes with reinforced sole in the kick start area of the sole!!!!!

I have the umbrella, the hats, the helmet, the boots, the back pack, the tent, the chair, KTM bikini for wife, ktm branded tools, numerous shirts, pants, riding pants, shorts, a bunch of the awesome briefcases, the fanny pack, that might be all, but I'm just getting started again.
