What did you do to improve them
PS you can determine what fork springs you have using this calculator
Some more info on shims
Thanks for the great review and details on the fork swap. I have also purchased the ebay "WP" forks. Could you share the part number or reference for the KTM caliper adapter plate? I understand it is found on the KTM 950SE, but looking at the parts diagram it appears to be a two-piece unit?
I used 6011 3049 100 on my Dakar. I think you need the same part, but better doublecheck. The KTM 950 has two brake discs, so only needed the left side caliper hanger.
Post #7 here
From KTM for a 2004 950
LEFT HAND caliper hanger and mounting screws (keep in mind the 950 has two discs so you need the left side hanger only)
Qty....Part no...............Part. name

Excellent! Thank you, sir!
Not to repeat, exactly what Gravel Seeker replied below your post.
The part is 1 peice unit; and it's the same on many KTM bikes, including Husqvarnas.
Went the easier way, I got that new set of forks :)
Not sure I follow, did you buy a brand new set from KTM?
Checking in on you X guys every now and then.
All this detailed sprocket talk brings back memories. I was definitely one who had a problem with my JT sprocket and vowed that was one part I would only by from BMW. I too ran JT's on many motorcycles without any problems, but not this time... LINKY
FUDGE! Bent my bars in a low-speed get off. Of course I had to hit one of the only big rocks on the way down. What are you all running for bars? Looking to replace my stock bars and re-use my barkbusters.
Screwed up quite badly this week with valves meeting piston.....still ongoing to see how it pans out.
If there are any BMW 650 can chain tensioner gurus, or if you are interested, it starts at this post:
Valves hit piston - do I need to replace the piston based on these pics?
Does anyone know where to find a clutch plates kit ? I think the clutch on the Xchallenge I just bought might need new plates.
I found kits for Xcountry but not Xchallenge. Are they the same ?
Example : https://ebcbrakesdirect.com/motorcycle-clutch/bmw/g-650-xcountry-k15/2008-2010/17000035
PS: Not BMW. They ask like $320, ain't gonna happen
They are the same for all of the G650X bikes. Check the Husqvarna 650 Terra as well. EBC makes a kit as well.
Hope I don't start a fight here, but might want to change the oil first. I put some high end synthetic in my X and the clutch slipped any time I was on the throttle hard. It took a couple of changes before it stopped slipping completely. Just a thought if you're going to change the oil in your new bike anyway.
Any xchallenges in Tassie?
I'm considering buying my mate's which doesn't get much use, around 6000km, excellent condition.
Louis lists the same kit for both Xcountry and Xchallenge
€60 for friction plates only, springs are like €12 and a complete set of friction and steel plates with springs start at €76
High end ok, but was in MA, MA1 or MA2 rated? (Wet clutch compatible).
