Works great, especially on fuel injected bikes.
I use a K400 on 990 AND 690.
(I haven't tried the "4ktm cam" because it sounds like a lot more work to install, but with no benefit over the K400).


Interestingly, after I began using G2ergo cammed throttles, I mentioned them to Jamie.
He didn't know that any company was making them, but he said that he used to have cammed throttles made for some of the bikes he raced back in the 1980's and 1990's.

Dorso 1200...

I just read HellforLeather they rode Dorso 1200 hit 160mph .... It's Hard to imagine supermoto going that fast... I hear the Dorso got 130hp vs KTM 116hp.. I've seen posts on here guys that claim 126hp with exhaust etc... Have you guys hit 160 mph is it bearable ? I didn't buy Smr for out right speed but I do find this interesting ...

492 lbs, but feels like a WR250R .
Do you suppose the author is exaggerating just a little?

You're welcome, and I agree . . .
. . . and most folks will totally overlook it because it seems too small to worry about.

HFL isn't exactly a reputable source. Its also quite unlikely that even if it has an honest 126hp that it'd see 160mph without a stout tailwind. A sport bike with that sort of power will only just make ~160mph and are surely quite a bit more aerodynamic. They may well have seen 160mph on the spedo, its probably off by 10+ mph at that speed though.

Yeah Turtle,
Have you posted any pix of your bike on this thread yet?
I'd like to see it.
What color is it?

Hey man,
Don't worry about it. I don't know how either.
_Anatic and Taz posted the pix of my bike for me.
But one of these days I'm going to learn how.
Taz was showing me some of it when he was down here,
but my computer was so slow, and I was so tired,
that I finally gave up and went to sleep.
