Hi,

I've got the new belt for some hundred km's now and it runs smooth. For me not a very big difference with the previous model. My Track has now almost 24 kkm on the odo and still loving it. Last weekend a little offroad to keep in shape:





Greetings, Tom.

KTM 950/990 frame, possibly bmw single sided, shaft driven swing arm. Was supposed to be 2wd, now its 1wd. $26,000 and last time I spoke with their president (the comanys that is), they weren't exporting to America but wanted to in the future. Id buy it once the price went down. great for on highway. The cvt tranny should make up for the diesels lower rev limit in the dirt/mud.

And for the turbo being in a bad spot. Get some hepco becker crash bars for the 950 and bolt them up. Problem solved!

Someone should make a compound turbo kit for this beast to really make the turbo(s) sing!

Dash features

beautiful freak,

Just wondering what the dash is like on the bike. What shows? Fuel gauge? Temp? Have not found anywhere what is displayed on the dash. What size are the tires? Only saw wheeel size listed on the web site.

Thanks,

Here are the details for shipping to the US.

We have been trying to get an air quote from a different supplier, but I can let you know what information we have now:

Shipping by 26 unit container will be $200 per unit, transit time 4 weeks.
Shipping singly by surface will be $400 per unit, transit time 4 weeks.
Shipping by Air will be $1700 per unit, transit time, less than 1 week.

This will get the unit from Europe to our facility for final assembly and then it can be shipped by ground to you, a dealer of your choice, or you may come to pick it up (the fun option!)

Thanks,
Speed Fuel and Temp and shown continuously.

In the lower line you can switch between time/volt/odo/trip1/trip2/temp/avg spd/time running and a few more.

What is the most miles anyone has done on this monster? And has anyone had any problems? Also I wonder whether it is possible to get one here in Portugal.

Hi Nick,

if you mean miles out of one tank, thats 528 km out of 17 liters for me (no highway and a passenger). And as a total I'm now on my way to 25kkm.

With any new bike the are some thing you run into (that's life ). I've had the newest BMW models (first series) in 2000, 2002, 2004 and 2006 and they all had something similar although BMW has a lot more R&D budget. So it's not strange for me.
If Portugal is a possible export candidate? Check with Track HQ and your local authorities. I hope so for you!

Greetings, Tom.

Actually, Beautiful Freak I meant total mileage, but probably too early to ask that question

Hi Nick,

I believe Trackie has the first production model and he's over 30kkm now with his Track. So that's around 20k miles.

@Ray: nice pictures, I can see some evolution between mine (around number 25) and these models (don's now what number they have, I lost Track).

Greetings, Tom.

My total mileage is now a little over 33k km.
The new belt now has 4000 km on it and still is in very good condition.
Only small signs of use.

The bike as a whole feels very composed, i just love it.

Belt change.

Just wondering if any of you who own these bikes have changed the CVT belt yourself and if so how hard is it to do.

Thanks.

Hi,

I did a belt change with some help from Erik (Track HQ CEO or whatever you want to call him ) just before I left for my Iceland trip last summer and it took me less than an hour. With the proper tools and preparation any mechanic should be able to do it in half the time (no time for a break than). But I'm a bit rusty because I don't do much repairing of modification lately.

Greetings, Tom.
