    I think I'll try one on my FE450 if they are available (same as KTM) when it comes time to change the sprockets. By then the subframe tank might be available too (LOL) and I can explore further afield.......including more 'roads'.

    Any more updates on these?

    I'm very interested in one for my XR650L... but only if they've worked out the kinks.

    I have been patiently waiting to try one for some time now.
    I would love to give it a try, think it is a good idea and would love to support new ideas. Cant wait forever though, may just go the RAD Cush hub route.

    Have just placed an order for one and hope it is here before mid July, plan to put about 14000k on it in one hit and will report back in September.

    Just wish there was a 39 or 41 tooth version to stretch my fuel range and skip the 15/45 harmonic.

    My gearbox already has 83000k on it and looked fine when i was in there at 78000k to install a kickstarter but its what you don't see that gets ya, the bike has run a 15/40 combo since new.

    This sort of breaks the rule in my sig line :deal

    Kenno, please report back here after you've used it.

    I'm thinking about picking one up for my XR650L as well.

    Just hope the next shipment turns up in time and I can report back, will take photos of it along the way as well. I will have a spare 14 & 40 tooth on board but I think it'll be ok.
    I have ordered a 16 tooth XRR sprocket for the front but will need to modify the case saver, this should gear me up a bit with the 45 and lift the chain off the slider more.

    That's normal for this model as the urethane is no longer bonded to the metal.

    Cheers
