Most of the guys I ride with are now using trials tires.
Most of these (including me) use the Pirelli MT43.
It's harder than a competition trials tire & outlasts them many times over.

Yeah, the big petrol tank is the one from Sherco.

had a great weekend riding the SEF300R at Koocanusa.
man, it's dry down there.
didn't run out of gas on a 70-km loop but the bike feels noticeably heavier and I just didn't like the supertanker.  Think I will put the stock tank back on.

Unfortunately the supertanker got scratched up when an OB lay down in front of me on a big steep hill so not much chance of selling it.

General Discussion / Front wheel bearings / axle
« on: April 22, 2015, 07:49:00 PM »
noticed a bit of slop in the front wheel on the weekend.
Just pulled it off & the axle is marred under the bearing on the brake side.
That bearing will turn but not easily.
I have the bearings, do you think I need to replace the axle?

I dunno where you can ride to follow any of the various theories but certainly not the trails I get to use.
8 or 9 years ago I just got on the new bike and rode it as the trail dictates.
Being an old slow geezer means I stop occasionally to rest and that gives the engine heat cycles.
That's  my theory anyway.
No engine problems so far on the past 4 bikes.
Not that I keep em long enough to be certain.

..... the fuel pump has to be rotated just right to get it out of the old tank and into the new one. It takes a little trial and error.
....

after coming this close to running empty a couple times, I finally got motivated to put the supertanker on the lil Sherco.

Clay, you are a master of understatement; that fuel pump was a constipated little turd to get out of there.
Took some wigglin to get it into the new one too.

Considering the price of this tank, it doesn't fit worth crap.
Lower bolt holes miss completely.
Nothing some heavy duty zip-ties don't fix but still.
The tabs on the side covers have to be cut off - they don't slot into the new tank.
Then more zip-ties to keep the side panels in place.
It's on & no big deal but for the money you should really get a better fit.

One of my OB riding buddies sent me this for Christmas:



I ziptied it to my bars as a reminder that KTM sucks  :D

a riding buddy made an order from Slavens and I had him add some PivotPegz for the SEF300.
Installed now but haven't ridden the bike with em yet.
I've had these on several bikes so pretty certain to like them.
Here is one next to the stock one.

I hope the pipe helps? i have never rode a modern 450 in the woods that had enough power :).

 ;D :D :D :D

I waited for the Factory 300 to get the clear tank and the updated mapping.
My Factory doesn't suffer from flame-outs, have heard some R's do.
Akro is a nice touch, must be some weight savings?
Also solid disks but I can't tell a difference.
Dunno if 450s will follow the same pattern.

Hey Dean, you're a bit late to the party but welcome to the forum.
Yeah, this is a great bike overall, the more I ride it the better it gets.
I'll get back to YYC about mid December, see you then.

Looks awesome.  How late into the year can you ride there?

Clint E.

Dunno... Late November was chilly in the morning and cold when the sun went down but no reason you couldn't ride if you dressed for it.

Some years they get snow higher elevations.

Faster, which state is that? Looks like Utah or AZ.

Utah.  Moab and south of Green River.

1-2nd gear single track riding I get 45 out of a tank.

that's pretty close to the 70km that I got, so at least we're consistent.
How far can you go on a DS ride?

Also I have only 300 km or so on this bike so maybe not totally broken in yet. (uh, less than 200 miles)
