I'd let you ride the Freeride if you could figure out the jetting issues. There is a whole group of disgruntled Freeride owners over at KTM talk who can't figure them out either.

Yea. I was thinking that also. Maybe a 125 swingarm. That is a little ways down the road. I have 2-3 weeks until I get the cylinder back from Power Seal and get the bike back together.
