    Thinking about jumping on the China bike bandwagon... Probably going to ditch the old KTM that I have to constantly fix and getting one of these... Now on the sight there are two models... Just the regular TSE and the 2021.5 what are the differences besides oil injection (which I prefer since it may get some street use)... Probably going to sell the KTM to fund this and hopefully have a bike that won't kill me in the woods and wont break all the damn time...

    The previous TSE has been sold out for awhile so the 2021.5 models are whats available. Forget the website, call Gary directly at GPX or join the Unofficial GPX Owners FB group where he is active daily.

    I think Dwight Rudder isnt far from there. He has been racing one for a year in local events, I think he won the +60 A class on it a few weeks ago.

    Well, we are the potato chip and beer generation rather than the Cliff bar and Red Bull generation.

    I bounced off a tree Saturday, snapped my brake pedal off, I'm surprised it lasted this long, its been bent a few times and bent back. I ordered a new one today and spoke to Gary about my shifter, seems I will need the updated shift shaft assembly, my bike started to hit a bunch of false neutrals this weekend, down shifts from third were going past second into neutral. Gary and Jeff are going to send me one when they come in, out of stock right now.

    It looks like a coolant and oil drain to remove the clutch cover to access? I guess I need to search the thread and see if someone documented the replacement.

    BTW, loving the bike, I've been riding a lot of weekends, more than I ridden in a long time. The bike is hanging tough!

    Coolant, trans oil drain, pull shift lever, remove brake pedal and right side cover noting orientation of all gears driving premix pump, WP, remove entire clutch. Slide out the shifter shaft.

    An hours job if you have the impact gun and proper socket for the clutch.

    Was the stock shift lever on it?

    Edit: if you back bleed the rear caliper you might be able to depress the brake pedal below the cover and hold it with a wedge, screwdriver, strap or such. I think I did that when I pulled my clutch out.

    One more note, the factory locking tab washer on clutch in the few Ive seen was not bent to lock the nut.... so if not you have a new one to bend. If its bent one can usually get at least another use from it or get one from GPX to be sure.

    And now also a Tusk brake pedal, not sure if I will keep it on, it seem shorter than stock, I ordered a new stock pedal from Pitster, $54.99 plus shipping. About half of what Husky/KTM are getting for a new one 152D87D0-4A19-4C6D-A44D-6D03C958702C.jpg

    Nice. If you have an order in maybe get the water pipe square O rings. 2 IIRC. My #3(?) bike had everything reusable but Andrew Gores bike (early unit) was a a mess of goop in there.

    Looking like about new years I will be buying his bike... Curious if anyone has installed a steering damper on these? After rocking one on the KTM I am hooked and it will see occasional street use so that can help greatly there...

    I run a Scotts above bar mount on mine. Minor grinding to get the KTM kit on there.

    My stuff matches 2016 FC450 I had and my current 2018 KTM sxf 350. Id eyeball your parts and they might be OK even from that generation. You might need a bit or two to make it work.

    GPX was supposed to bring out a damper kit too, you might want to ask Gary about that.

    Yes because after getting a bike that has a GPR unit on it, it is night and day... I used to hate tight sandy trails but with that damper in Colorado I was blasting down them like it was asphalt ... I remember one place in Rabbit Valley that has a long 200 yard decent climb that is nothin but a sandwash... My previous bike was scary squirrelly there... Loved it with the damper... Once I get the bike I may send a message. I am guessing Gary works for GPX in Utah?

    Correct. Gary is the brains behind the GPX operation in Utah.

    The great thing about GPX is that they are made in small batches to his spec and the factory responds to his (and our) inputs very quickly to improve the products or create special parts we request.
