    Why go through all of that trouble when you can just put Ohlins RFS Fork kits with TTX cartridges on? Xtrig makes a triple clamp that will take a wp48 fork and you can get the KTM Ohlins RFS forks or get the Ohlins G450X specific RFS TTX fork kit (a bit more but doesn't require a fancy new fork clamp kit) If you go the WP fork conversion route you'll need to make an axle spacer and re-center a KTM front wheel instead of the factory wheel but there are a ton of used and aftermarket goodies for the KTM stuff. Just look at my Black G450X with Ohlins in the pic above this post :freaky

    Come on now - no way you had such high rankings on a BMW. Surely these poorly engineered g450x aren't capable of such things.

    just kidding of course !

    I have the same setup on my bike. (WP48mm w/ttx cartride, xtrig and KTM front wheel & axle (I also have the WP Traxx on the rear)

    Everything bolted right on its hard to image suspension getting any better than this.

    I had WP with TTX inserts,.............it does get better with the whole Ohlins fork!!!! :lol3 Stiction is a beatch but almost eliminated with the Ohlins. I have the 2011 KTM Ohlins RFS fork kit on my G450X and just installed the 2013 Ohlins RFS fork kit on my Husky TXC310R,,...Ohlins actually made a bunch of improvements for 2013 and it's even better, hard to believe until I actually experienced it myself.

    I am in the process of making a mold to make a sold base pan so I can make a real seat, would anyone be interested in the pan only so you can build your own seat.

    Does any one have 17inch wheels for the G450X? What's the best way to go about making a set?

    I would really like a better seat.
    I thought that a seat fastened with quick pins would be easy enought to remove to fuel .

    what did you have in mind ?
