And I'm talking small play around jumps, not clearing doubles or jumping street humps in SF like some YouTubers

Two sets of wheels, best of both worlds. I think my 701E is a perfect 50/50 bike with the two sets of wheels

I had two sets and of wheels when I had mine but it ainít a simple swap. Between the two the rotor is a different diameter, the side stand is a different length, the steering stem cam needs to be rotated to fix the geometry between setups.
It wasnít a case of dirt riding in the morning and motard in the afternoon.

All that jumping looks cool in the ktm marketing but 99% of buyers ainít riding upstairs on SMCís.

I just use the enduro size rotor on my SM wheels and the swap is a lot faster. I haven't felt the need to change the geometry between the two setups but I dont ride that aggressively in the street. About a 20 minute job to swap back and forth. I also run the same sprockets and swap over the cush drive so there's no chain adjustment.

So track day this weekend. Bought some leaded 110 which I was going to run straight but now I'm wondering if I should cut it with 93 just for $ sake. Maybe even 87 in the future. Thoughts?

anyhooo, wound up cutting it with a pump gas, 50/50. We shall see



In other news, did not think i'd like this blue sprocket at all. It's starting to grow on me though. Didn't want a steel sprocket, didn't want an aluminum one either, but the options are limited at 42 teeth so it was blue or orange. I wanted the dirt tricks one but I couldn't find it in stock anywhere. That one was chrome, which I'm also not thrilled about but figured it'd look better than blue or orange. Now i'm not so sure.

All else being equal at least blue matches the rest of the bike over the other options mentioned

Appreciate it. 501 street legal conversion sounds like a blast
