    I've used the S3 idle screws, but have always stayed with the stock air screws for this very reason. No issues and its easy to carry a little screw driver on your bike.

    IMG_20201211_205753224.jpg IMG_20201211_205806499.jpg Have a lot of work to do this winter on my sx convertion.i put fastway pegs on in the low back position and rox 1.5 offset risers on to go from torture to joy.Put a EE high seat on but have yet to try that out.Will convert the unreal bad 4c forks to open chamber and revalve shock for single track I really like the tight handling of this bike but unreal how bad the forks are.

    Another crisp desert trip in the books.
    I have almost 60 hours on this TPI bike and it's been a gas and go affair with just normal maintenance.

    Anyone know where I can get one of these temp sensors? Turns the fan on. Doesn't seem to be a ktm original part.

    We got our little girl one of those and she loves it. A great transition going to a real motorcycle.

    So did I when my kids were little. Also got them a battery powered jeep. Problem was; to 'go' they would smash the pedal to the floor. So.. when they got a gas powered quad, guess what they did to make it 'go'.

    ya.. a bit of a butt pucker moment for mom and dad. (not to mention mom going off the handle at dad later):lol2

    Looks like great conditions. Makes me hungry for TexMex.

    I'm attributing it to a momentary lapse of talent but yes, time for a new tire.

    That video should come with a warning label "Caution, watching this video will cause monetary convulsions and uncontrollable spending of $10 grand"

    Thanks. I’ve sat on it at the dealer. Our local pro just won the overall on a ‘21 300 gasser and it’s almost bone stock. He’s raving about it and he came from an xc.

    Have you ridden the current version of PDS? Some YouTube video I saw said it was an improvement

    2021 KTM 300 XC-W TPI Highlights

    "WP XPLOR rear shock with PDS (Progressive Damping System) technology features a second damping piston in combination with a closed cup towards the end of the stroke, supported by a progressive shock spring, to produce unmatched dual-sport performance."
