So, what's next :lol:

Actually, a few things..
First I need to prep the bike for the "One Moto Show" in Portland Or Feb 7-9th.
My pipe was a bit trashed after Glen Helen so I sent it out to Pacific Crest Pipe Repair in Medford Oregon and had him do some work.
It came back BEAUTIFUL!!
I wish I had sent it out BEFORE the shootout.
Oh well..

After the "One Moto Show" I'll be installing a new top end.
Why?
Why not? :lol:
The reality is we are still testing and tuning with the Induction Crank and while what we have is very powerful we think there is more to be had out of it.

So, stay tuned.. 8-)

This vid was shot by Adam Millar who's bike we ran against in the MXa shoot out,
It takes about 12 min to get going..
As you can hear and see we had it going much better in the afternoon with the new top end on it. 8-)

Arik Swan has made a few changes to the KtX500e to accommodate his large 6 foot 4 inch frame for the National 2T Championships at Glen Helen this weekend...
No, We didn't build it to sit on a shelf and look pretty 8-)
