We have them here and I have seen them in the mountains. I haven't tried one yet, but may get my chance this weekend. The kit isn't very good in the video. You can get a better setup made by a Timberland. Do a search on them and watch those videos of guys in the mountains.

More fun than herding cats! Especially when you add a boon docker turbo to a 500xcw (think 95 hp). Most of them here in Idaho go on the FI 500's. They start better in cold and adjust to the big altitude changes. Our KTM dealer is also the dealer for Timbersled....

My bike's PO was a B-level enduro/hare scrambles competitor that weighed 180 pounds, and actually sent his stuff all the way to RT headquarters to have the work done.

This version of the P15 is supposedly a super-progressive 6.8-14.0 kg/mm. Race Tech has changed the ratings on their springs several times in the last few years without changing the designations.

Just sayin'.
I was going to post the exact same question. Thanks for clearing that up. PM sent

Don't post stuff like this! I having a very hard time convincing myself that I DO NOT need a Timbersled kit. They look like a blast and everyone I know who has ridden one loves it. A little pricey though.

Here is the Boondockers turbo. I wonder how long a 500 can put out 100hp before going kaplooey.

Good deal on KTM 3.4G tank (orange only)

Found this on Cyclebuy.com. KTM tank made by Acerbis

KTM_Orange_Tank_3.4G

No tax in most, and free shipping. Just passing it on in case anyone is looking for the larger size to get a bit more range out of their bike (as I was).

Comes with screw-on cap, but no petcock (use your original from OEM tank or buy a new one).

What's the difference between the 08 450EXCR CDI and the 09+ 450EXC CDI? I see the part numbers are different.

78039031000 vs 78039031100.

Wondering if I should pick up a newer one...

Good timing, just picked up a 2nd mount so I don't have to swap it between 2 bikes anymore.

With all the gear on the handlebars its really the only option. I like the GPS as close to the center of the bars as possible. Less chance of it getting tagged.
