Works Connection | Pro Launch Holeshot Start Device Install

Details

    The Works Connection Pro Launch Start Device is a step forward in holeshot tech that makes aggressive starts easier and more controlled than before.The Pro Launch device moves away from the button design you typically see, choosing instead a spring-less trigger design that gives you much easier operation, especially if you’re setting the device on your own without any help.

    With this design the Pro Launch has a very positive lock and a reliable release so your front wheel stays down during aggressive take offs. You still get the well-known Works Connection quality and an aluminum alloy construction that is made here in the USA. And Works Connection has made getting the device ready a piece of cake thanks to the included instructions, drill template, and countersink tool.

    Watch our video for detailed instructions on how easy the Works Connection Pro Launch is to install and use.

    Specs:
  • Redesigned, spring-less, trigger-type holeshot device.
  • Redesigned for simple, reliable, button-less use.
  • Spring-less design delivers positive engagement and consistent release.
  • Device is designed to be engaged by rider alone.
  • Chamfered mating surfaces make engaging the device much easier.
  • CNC machined exclusively from aircraft grade aluminum.
  • Lightweight assembly weighs only 50 grams complete.
  • Custom drill guide template and countersinking tool included.
  • Detailed installation instructions include large step-by-step photos.
  • Laser etched logo and anodized finish.
  • Engineered, manufactured and assembled in the USA.
  • Patent Pending.

Works Connection Holeshot device
It comes with a bit for easy drill out of the fork guard, you still need 2 other drill bits for the smaller sizes but the one it comes with is nice for drilling out the main hole you need. Overall it works great and was easy to install

Installs very easy with good instructions. I can even set it by myself, so i love that part. I can go out and practice starts without having to have someone there to help me set it each time.

So I have a 15 ktm250sxf is this an easy install?? And most races im at I don't have help getting set up at the gate is it easy to set by yourself or is it more difficult to set by yourself?
Brandon on Oct 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Its not terribly hard to install, you just follow the directions. Take the fork guard off, lay the template on, drill a few holes. You can decide how far you want it to hold the forks down based on your location of the template. As far as use, I was initially able to set it by leaning over the bars, grabbing the wheel and pulling the front end down. I have pretty long arms. Then I later installed some bar risers and couldn't do it. Someone will usually be willing to help at the line.
Does this come with the drill bit?
Justin P on May 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Justin - the package comes with a drill bit sized perfectly for the latching mechanism. As long as you follow directions (especially about aligning the height of the paper template), it should work out well. I've installed two of them (the first one a little too low so I couldn't engage it without assistance) and they've performed perfectly.
When the device is engaged what is the overall height of the bike?
Avery S on May 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It all depends on how high up you mount it on the fork guard. The higher up the guard you mount it the lower the front end will be when set. Also remember that the higher up you mount it the more force downward on the suspension it will take to set. You can use a ratchet strap to pull your suspension down to figure out the best location to mount for your needs.
Does Works connection pro launch device come with lower fork guard supports ?
Gary S on Sep 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: no it doesn't, but most oem fork guards are strong enuff to hold it, most of the time its only in use for a minute or so at a time anyway, it depends on how ong you have it set before the gate drops.
I’m confused as to if this will fit my bike or not? I’ve done research and other sites say it won’t fit my 2017 KTM 450-FE? Any advice
A shopper on Aug 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Is this a KTM ? or a Husky ? The description of your bike is not correct .
When I order this for MY KTM does it come IN orange?
ashley t on Jun 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, unfortunately, it only comes in red.
If the device doesn't come with the fork guard supports, can they be purchased?
Ryan M on Jan 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not carry the fork guard supports separately. However, if you bought this device from us please contact us at 1-800-336-5437 or via email at sales@rockymountainatv.com so we can take care of you.
Will this work on a 94rm 250?
A shopper on May 18, 2017

I just bought a new bike and it already has the ring you put on the fork, but it doesn't have the red lever, does anyone know where i can just get that separate?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Works Connection may sell just that piece separately, but you'll probably need to purchase the whole kit.
