I used 160 and it rubbed, 150 (also true 150mm) clears the chain barely but being 17" it fits the cut out on the chain guard

Is the chain guide in good condition? If there wasn't a chain guide I'd be worried about the edge of the tire catching the chain below the swing arm and potentially kicking the chain off the rear sprocket but with a chain guide that shouldn't be as much of a concern.
Do super-motos usually come with chain guides or is that a KTM thing?

My bike is almost in every way identical to Enduro model, pretty sure it's a same chain guide

The only differences that I know of aside form color and stickers are:

*17" rims laced to enduro hubs
*Stiffer springs front and back with less range of adjustment for the suspension (Like 15 clicks of rebound instead of 17)
*Larger front brake rotor

That's it... same swingarm, fork, etc.

Later SuMo models have a different fork and swingarm, but it seems mine was just a case of "badge (or in this case sticker) engineering"

Test rode the Terrorflex, it's so slippery on pavement that I can't even get front wheel off, just spins when I get on the power... Will see how it works on dirt, 10:30 @ MM still on for tomorrow?

"Terrorflex" sounds like it instills terror to the rider on pavement. Should be awesome in the dirt!

We'll be there tomorrow! 10:30 is proposed start time. Should be there around 10:00 though.

did 90 miles chasing Ghosts in Pachaug forest, got to MM literally 5 minutes late, tried following tracks but as everyone went north I headed south Beach Pond, followed tire tracks all day but as it turned out those were wrong tracks anyway. Kept checking in at the MM parking hoping that everyone will return and regroup, doing smaller loops without having any idea where they go, discovered lot's of new (to me) trails just following red arrows, climbed some pile of rocks (it nearly killed me) turns out that was Mount Misery, clearly my 300+ lb Behemoth is not ideal for that trail...

Finally at the end of the day caught up with some folks at the camp, all good fun, next time I'm going alone, did way more miles than large group.

Terrorflex is AWESOME in the mud, leaves, rocks, sand.... sucks on pavement, but not bad, noise level less than Karoo that I just took off, cornering, once I got used to it is not bad either.
