Without a doubt F5. I'll just send it along with a few squish samples to someone who knows what they're doing

I've just inserted a bush (small hole see pic) there but will try the oil bath method. Wasn't going to use a breather but maybe not a bad idea. Mate's bike so he's the guinea pig. I'll just keep with me old kicker pretending not to be jealous.
That is half the reason I wet modded mine. I seen a 2015 a while back that was looking a bit average there. And about a million worn out ktm ones.

Tis the reason I'm considering putting it all in a box and a nice plastic cover over the flywheel. Surely I've gone mad!

Head going into the mailbox today!

P-Tech radiator braces ordered!

Rear wheel isn't very well aligned in the swingarm, but it'll be coming off for some rubber of choice at some stage anyway.

Got the Renthal twinwalls off the old girl cleaned up and into the new one. Next stop will be along the lines of pulling the carb, chasing an NEDW needle down, fitting motion pro throttle cable and getting rid of that pull choke.

Ptech braces fit really well! Happy as a pig in it..

Have opted to pull the chain and rear sprocket straight up. Have a low hour used DID VX2 and Supersprox stealth 50T that I'll throw on.

Still waiting for the head to come back, and tossing up OEM bashy vs AXP Extreme.

Seeing what I can get a BPD swingarm guard for in Australia. Distributer is after $140+ postage selling to the public. I might be able to improve on this, otherwise I'll be taking my chances.

Have any of you people checked the PV linkage tension on the new bikes?

Ahh man! I didn't really want to have to go dropping the side cover off just yet!

Next question, appears the RHS pv cover is using a thicker gasket than I am used to. Is it required for clearance issues? I think I have a couple normal ones here still.

Yep you are all over it. The right hand side assembly is different to earlier ones. Be reall careful taking it of, mine was stuck down tight on one side. Depends too on where you run the adjustment screw as well. Mine is out pretty far, about three turns.
