    I put way too much thought into that setup as a pitbike... At one time Judd was advising against their setup for the E5, IIRC the smaller front sprocket causes the chain to eat the swingarm, have they changed that stance? Check KTM's parts fiche btw, they list shock springs that go right up into big BIG boy weight ranges...

    yeah, the reg gas 50s have the same problem lunching swingarms. so stupid. def something to watch closely.

    this build is for my 9 year old that’s not quite big enough for the 65 yet. he was pumped this morning when i surprised him.

    the “sprockets” are hilariously small. call them pinion gears.

    thnx, man ... we def spoil them, but they're both good humans (and students), and they're appreciative. if they keep it up, the cool shit floats into the stable on the flip side, i do pretty well with bike sell/buy since we take such good care of everything.

    i can't wait to see this one built, should be a blast. prob won't get it's first proper ride until we kick off the season in April down in NC again.

    Re: Next mini project, SX-E5 BW

    Judd Racing's shipping department is no joke. ordered the BW kit Sat the 13th, shipped from the UK Mon the 15th, arrived in MA on the 16th. wild.

    i'll take some pics but the swingarm is a work of CNC art and the wheel kit is full Talon. very nice. only hiccup is the 46T rear sprocket, i need a 50T but will try a 49T from Nihilo first. the larger wheels eat some power.

    I was floored how quick I could get stuff from the UK and Europe putting my Buell together, often faster than some of the traditional options here in the US.

    mind blowing, and i've ordered from overseas quite a bit. DHL can be hit or miss but past few deliveries from them have been great.

    so far he loves it, rode circles in the garage when i surprised him then ripped it out front until his hands froze he's wanted one bad ever since we were on the mini track at Crow Hill and a kid was flying on one. then when we rented 508 for a family day and met a dad that had the GG flavor and gave us the run down. i'll have to get a small Honda generator to keep in the van for charging during breaks. annoying but hope it works out. it's smooth and QUICK!

    we do need to get back to working on gears but with all the sports they do outside of moto, i'd rather he just has as much fun as possible this season. we'll keep it until he fits the 65.

    Re: Next mini project, SX-E5 BW

    some pics, prob bring the bike inside tomorrow to start tearing down, tire mount first.

    full kit, i also bought a bearing and bushing kit so i don't have to fish the old bushings out. swinger already has new bearings installed



    so pretty...





    love that the wheel set comes with spacers as well. i'll swap the discs over but bought new hardware.

    First pic makes everything look like normal dirt bike parts. The hand in the rest of the images is cool as it shows how small this stuff really is.

    So cool that you are getting your kids into this stuff. I would have been stoked at that age to have anything remotely as nice as the stuff you provide.

    That swingarm looks better than what I remember, Judd must have improved the design since I last poked at this, sweet!

    it's beautiful and light. will have to compare weights.

    project stalled while i was waiting on some small parts like genuine KTM sprocket bolts + nuts. the ProX bolt kit i bought didn't fit.
