dell orto v keihin FCR. std v 14mm offset

rode a FX470 at the weekend with a dell orto fitted and it was noticeable how strong/violent the thing was from a closed throttle.

i just checked an old thread on a race last year and spotted the same comment when i borrowed a FE400e from colin spicer. even the 400 jolted me!

up and down, up and down

after the initial jolt though, the dell orto isn't quite as good as the keihin-certainly not as smooth.

but the biggest difference i could feel was how much more effort it was to turn the steering when going back to the std yokes! MY ELBOWS ACHED from the effort. and on bouncy straights i had to have a good grip to keep the bars in check-especially a table top-everytime i came to it.

with the 14s you let go of the bars and light a pipe! KTM owners will NEVER understand that!

as my race report of the 12-hour says, the tall seat saved my legs and spine and is a godsend too. glad i managed to swop that!

i hope many more of you with pre '04s will take my word and find a set of 14/16mm offset yokes from a KTM. i believe that this years bike has an eccentric yoke post and can be adjusted to 16/18mm.

the steeper head angle of later models means that the trail is shorter and the need for 14s to lengthen it COULD still be there? however the steeper head angle should make woods work easier anyway.

keep an eye on ebay!

Taff that 470 is just plain sweet. What can you say. Dell or no Dell. It grunts hard off the bottom. Dare I say that I like the power better than the 450. Nope didn't say that

Bring back the 470! Or we will make our own

hi eric

i can understand what a good following the bike had. as far as on the edge racing goes though; when i'm doing my nelson impersonation over the handlebars and the thing literally dies, i nearly go over the bars, tap the throttle and my head gets flicked back?

i could get used to it for sure. if all goes well i will be getting a 97mm piston wedged in there over the winter along with a few new bearings. would be nice to go on the dyno then and see how close to the 47 RWBHP i'm getting!

regards
