    DBC576F3-3200-4122-8335-CCAC08993C88.jpeg So my first day ride happened! Very impressed with this bike. Lots of hills and climbs and it did great. Doesn’t seem to spin the rear tire, just keeps clawing it’s way up. Bike ran good with stock jetting (65p, 190m, 3rd clip) but I’m going to bump down to a 60 pilot because the air screw is out around 2.5 turns. I’ll play with the main when I get a more open area to stretch its legs. Enjoy: 06E2FD11-277E-4CF4-B698-7814A692976A.jpeg

    No, remove 4cm in the rear of the pipe

    That would do absolutely nothing to make the tab on the front part of the pipe line up with the tab on the frame.

    I'm really wanting to pull the trigger on one of these bikes. I just finished reading ALL 420 pages here, and a little on FB (not my favorite). What are people using for rotor guards on the 21.5 bikes? And has anyone tried getting an AXP skid plate to fit using a heat gun?

    Edit: and what radiator guards work? I've read that Husky TE guards fit the older bikes. Is this still true for the newer bikes?

    I put Acerbis guards on mine but I swapped bars at the same time. I’ve heard you have to drill the end of the stock bar to fit the mounting for the hand guards, but that’s not really a big deal. The stock bars are 1 1/8 at the inner mounting point.

    I waited to purchase but have been watching since ‘19. I’m glad for the ‘21.5 because they fixed/ updated lots of the early concerns.

    Thank you, I'll read it too!

    Yep, that's partly why I'm so highly interested in them now. I'd like to get one before the prices become Big 4 prices lol. But having engine, radiator and disc protection is mandatory for the places I ride. I'm positive someone has found something, just need to find it lol.

    just scooped up a 2019 model, its definitely been ridden but from the looks of it not too hard! still had og rubber with crazy amounts of tread (good sign) is it hard to source a new expansion pipe for these?
    is there any cross reference numbers?

    You should be able to get the 3rd gen pipe from GPX directly.

    The Gen 3 pipe from GPX is $180 plus shipping, it takes some trimming and bending to fit the 2019, I just put one on mine. Scroll up or back a few pages for my posts

    What's a good asking price for a 2021 TSE250R, titled and plated, with around 200 miles on it?

    I'm doing the exact same thing. Picking up a KTM 350 XCF-W tomorrow.

    Is one of these reliable enough to buy used versus new??

    It's just like anything else, it really depends on how the p.o. took care of it, but they're generally pretty robust, I'm fairly certain people have gotten more than 200 hours out of a top end.

    My blue one went over 350 on original top end before being sold off to someone who isnt active online. Like any other bike, look it over but there have been no glaring faults except the shifter shaft which has been upgraded and with a bendy/flexy lever can be protected from damage. Stock shifters are still too strong IMO.

    I bought my 2019 TSE250R used a year ago, it was taken care of pretty well by the original owner, I’ve ridden quite a lot in this year, I’ve replaced wheel bearings, a front brake hose and front master cylinder, I broke the brake pedal, my fault, bounced off a tree and had the soft shift shaft selector issue that some early bikes had, otherwise its all original and running great
