I came up with $106/ ea. Maybe Ron Ayers has them cheaper? I would hope they could be sourced from Sudco for less. Ouch!!

Not really... don't really care for superbikes... unless they have knobbies!

Just want to find out where the cheap prices came from in case I have to get some OEM parts for my bikes.

Damn I have been trying to locate one of these. That seem pretty wide, but I was looking for something a little wider for woods riding. The smaller ones are good for MX.

Good find!

Now Maestro I'm sure you already know that all KTMs are equipped with power bands from the factory. Those aftermarket power bands are marketed to us KLRistas and other riders of Lesser Bikes.

Getting hard to find these in unmolested condition. Plastic looks like it's faded to the classic "Honda-sort-of-red-sort-of-pink" color, and seat cover looks like a plastic bag. But, grab it for $1,500 and probably get another 20k miles before anything needs fixing.

Nah, we'd take a used tube off the pile in the garage and re-purpose it. You know, reduce reuse recycle and all that jazz.
