Decided to see how the 2021 KTM 500 EXC would do on a real motocross track! This will serve as a baseline as we modify the bike and make changes/improvements. The location is Pax Trax Motocross Park in Bunnell, Florida

  • If you had to choose between a 300 xc two stroke and a 500 exc for strictly off road use, which one would you get?

  • Once you do the muffler, ecu, and tires, you will not have any need for the rm anymore. If you think the power is good now, just wait till you make those changes. There are some very offroad oriented dot approved tires.

  • I bought a 500 in 2015, still have it, and from time to time I think about selling it but man it just works so well with hundreds of hours on it, rallies, rips on the weekend and a couple multi-day trips.

  • I can't believe those mirrors didn't start flopping around. I can't ride mine off road for a mile before they're flopping all over the place.

  • Change tires then head back to the same track update the review. Then uncork all the power potential remove the mirrors and try the limits and see how that compares to the other bikes

  • Hi Buddy , I just got one, do you feel that the rear lights needs to be removed for dirt?

    • @JGreenwood238 thats cool, I would like to see it, will you upload a video ?

      Giovanni CorlitoGiovanni Corlito3 kuukautta sitten
    • Giovanni Corlito they do move around quite a bit but I wouldn’t say they have to be removed. I just finished up a diy tail tidy and it seems more stable for sure

      JGreenwood238JGreenwood2383 kuukautta sitten
  • Did you uncork it before this?

    Scott millerScott miller3 kuukautta sitten
    • No sir, bone stock down to the tires. As of now the only mod I have done is a tail tidy. Looking to swap to beefier tires soon, upgrade the headlight, then uncorking will be next!

    • @JGreenwood238 I just had sag looked it and we decided to leave it as it was. Didn’t have much issues with it on the main track. Just a bit soft if you cased something. I’m still running the stock tires as well

    • @JGreenwood238 man I couldn’t get my mirrors to not spin around

      FL Real EstateFL Real Estate3 kuukautta sitten
    • @FL Real Estate no issues with the mirrors and I have not messed with the suspension but I'm sure it will need to be stiffer if I ever take it on the main track

    • @FL Real Estate good man, Rob gave me your number when I was talking to him on Saturday, idk if you remember me but we used to ride together in the 65/85 days! I was going to send you a text and see if you wanted to ride sometime soon

    • Biggest difference to me than my previous 450 was having to ride it a gear higher due to having 6 gears instead of 5 gears.

  • ya, im curious to see how it would be with proper knobbys, you can hear the engine working harder because of a lack of traction. I was looking forward to this video. I just bought one yesterday and im super excited, i sat on it while i was there and it feels just like my 250 sxf. Thats great to hear that it can handle the track because im looking to do some hare scrambles which where i live are about 45% mx track and 55% woods. With some mx tires i think this bike would be fantastic.

    • I will be changing the tires soon for sure! This bike is begging for more traction
