Im thinking of doing the FMF slip-on's. -dual
I put on FMF "Factory 4.1" dual slip ons and they are super loud, and the wifey complains of exhaust getting in her helmet due to the super short length. I installed the spark arrestors and they are much quieter. The FMF "Q" series is considerably longer...and more quiet. Just a heads up.

Video was awesome! Great scenery, and fun terrain. I liked how you Guys are two up and going for it. The sand at the end of the video was a great ending.

Good stuff!

Is that the Crystal Mountain along the NV/UT border?

Nice to see the KTM being well used - they are amazing machines.
Thanks Scott. It is at Dinosaur National Monument on the CO/UT border.

I'm in love with the front. I run it almost exclusively on the bike.

The rear was fine. It seems like it has slightly less traction than a 909 and mine only lasted around 1500 miles. The 909 is easily a better tire, more traction and lasts longer, but it should be as it is twice the price.


Sorry I have been lazy about updating this thread. I'm in the middle of moving and starting a new job, so posts will roll out slowly. Hopefully I'll get everything updated sometime this winter.
