Sorry you mistook my attempt at comedy as retardation. Ive been asking for the offset since the first post, just didnt know what to call it. The chain is new and has the same lateral movement as the stock chain. Youre still trying to fix my rub issue, possibly I should have left that part out. Just tried to throw a story along with my post. Again, Im only looking for the offset of a 5"x17". Dont care about how to fix the chain rub.

you can adjust till' you turn blue....

there ain't enough room for that 5" and a DOT 160 in that swingarm... the manufacturer's don't even recommend putting a 160 on a 5"... you ever look this up?.... all the squids gotta do it so the tire looks wide and flat... you aint even getting the right profile when you're turning, on the side of the tire....

adjust farther towards the brakeside, and then the tire rubs the swingarm... there's pics somewhere of guys actually taking a piece outta the brakeside of the swingarm and welding it up to get the clearance needed....

keep adjusting... get a belt sander and take it to the outside ridge on the tire... that should get it.... .... i mean, what could happen?....

no they don't... they say 4.50" (4.25" - 5.00") it'll work, but the profile is not gonna be as good....racebikes don't have tires w/flat profiles, it doesn't work when you're turning on the side of the tire.... down side of this is your ass sliding across the asphalt... you know, that mushy mix of your jeans and blood mixing together....

bossman... we ain't even mentioned the rim gettin' chain slapped either... try to find a 5" Behr rim on a KTM sumo that ain't slapped.... it pretty much doesn't exist....

all the KTM SMR's came w/165/65 dunlop KR(?) race slicks on 5" Behr rims, and they fit and got slapped like mofo's.... the SMR's were track bikes, and then people put stators and lights and batteries on them and got plates....

i went thru all this for a coupla years til' i got mine all together, trying to figure out what works, readjusted the rim over to the brakeside, even used the beltsander... dumb shit.......... 4.25" Behr take-off rim from zack at woody's, laced it to a KTM cush hub, put on a 160 Metzler M3. the metzlers and pirellis both have profiles more like race tires...... very sweet rig, bike is way more rideable than w/a solid hub, and it freakin' hauled azz.... i switched it over to a dirt rig last year, i'm ridin' in the dirt more so... i still got the sumo rig...

do whatcha wanna... i'm tellin' you what works.... look up those tire specs for metzlers.... slipper clutches are almost a must too if ur gonna go real fast....

Hey! I grew up there...you must show proper respect and use its correct name...Flatistan. All joking aside, the 4.25 rear is the best choice for 98% of the people out there, and the people with more skill than me say it makes the bike turn in better. But I do enjoy the challenge of taking something a little further than the average person will, so post up pics once you get the 5" sorted.

Has anyone found a replacement fuel pump for these things? I would like to get one to carry as a spare on long trips and KTM only sells the whole assembly for a whole lot of money.

Here's my 14 with a 5" warp rear and 160 Avon Distanzias. I have about 5mm of space between the tire and chain. I'm not sure how to take a rim offset measurement but I'd be happy to if you explain it to me.

Looks killer! I guess the magic questions are: Is the rear just the standard way Warp 9 builds them, and does the Distanzia have a different profile than the dedicated Sumo tires the other guys were using?

The warp rear is the standard 5" rim they build. I'm not really sure about the profile of the distanzias vs other 160 sm tires as these are the first 160s I have used. I have a wr250x with a 4.25 rear and 150 bt03's and that combo offers a slightly more rounded profile for sure.

Since we're sharing shifter porn, looks like a rivet that will need to be ground in order to replace the knob.

Im not positive if this is the correct way but it is and will be the way I do it, lol.

Using a straight edge (I used fishing line tucked into the tire bead at 2 points since the wheel is still together and on the bike) from the edge of the wheel rim to the inside of the sprocket close to the hub. It gave me 16mm. Bike is beautiful by the way!!
