Cant wait to get this 450 back on the track


Mods during rebuild

KTM Hard parts slipper

I've got a billet stator cover to install, and then the break in begins.

Got spring from KTM talk for $50. Slipper from ebay $400 (brand new).

Honestly, people may laugh, but lately I'm all about Karma. Everything started to go my way once I help an elderly gentleman at HEB. Since then, I've been trying to live the better life (at least helping others) and things just seem to go my way. Almost like that insurance commercial.

Ratracing does nikasil coatings. They are probably closest to you.

Sweet! Glad to see you got yours back up and running! I want my feeler gauges back! Haha.

Also glad to see you getting back together as well Greg. Never heard back from you. Can't wait to see y'all at the track. Let me know if you need any ktm parts. I may can get them cheaper for you.
