Re: KTM Carb Heater Install

Never need heat on a 4t carb. If it's a snow bike maybe that's a different story. Others here have a lot of experience with snowbike setup. Wast of time for single track winter riding above -15c.

Re: 4CS fork revalve question

You can fix the forks for about $200 to $400 if you are handy and depending on your comfort level.
