want to have your 2017 frame pow-
dercoated to the correct orange, the
color code is RAL2009. ( 2) The 2018
KTM comes with a more powerful Sky
Rich HJTZ5S-FP battery that replaces
the 2017’s lighter-duty Samsung C22S
But, if you have cold-starting issues,
you will need the 450XC battery tray
to hold the larger Sky Rich battery.
WPS offers an aftermarket battery that
will fit in the existing 2017 battery tray
that almost doubles the cold-cranking
amps of the stock Samsung battery.
It retails for $119. ( 3) The 2018 AER
air forks have different valving from
the 2017 forks, but it is a simple
change that any suspension tuner can
achieve without having to reinvent the
wheel. ( 4) Obviously the graphics have
changed, although the plastic remains
the same. You can order a 2018 radiator shroud from your friendly local
dealer or design your own graphics.
