If you want a evo 125, I'd suggest 82-84 RM125. The '81 is a great bike, but has some 1 year only engine parts that can prove troublesome to source. One of our club members has been searching for a 81 RM125 crank for some time.

Added reply in a thread More expensive premix, better? 3/3/2015 10:04 AM

Motul 800 is thick as molasses and a PITA to mix. It's also expensive. Other than that, it's great oil.

Does it look better than this?

Added reply in a thread More expensive premix, better? 3/3/2015 5:08 AM

I run Lucas because it's inexpensive and I can get it 7 days a week at the auto parts store down the street. The thing to remember when running an injector compatible oil is that it has thinners to allow it to pump through the injector system. Because ... more »

RV will get it figured out, and he doesn't need a bunch of arm chair quarterbacks to make it happen, DV included.

That's $11,600 US, which a die hard collector will pay for a brand new, never started, 1993 CR500. A friend of mine has a new, in the crate, 2004 KX500. $11,600 wouldn't touch it.

Considering that RV hasn't raced MX since 2013, I think he did alright. He'll get the bugs worked out.

HaHa, that's pure comedy coming from a Brit! You guys would still be pushing your Lucas electronics equipped Jaguars around in the dark if it wasn't for German Bosch and American Visteon!

A used dirt bike with a Texas title is a rarity.

The best way to handle narcissistic people is to avoid them. I learned this through experience.

Added reply in a thread breaking in a new piston on a 4 stroke 2/24/2015 3:55 PM

Avoid heat cycling. It increases the likelihood of blow-by because the engine needs to be loaded when new rings are installed. A loaded engine puts pressure on the back of the rings, which forces them against the cylinder wall. The best way to achieve ... more »

MSR/Ironman sprockets and DID 520VT2 chains. Anyone that has used that combo knows.

Added reply in a thread Athena big bore kits - 250F / 290F...experience? 2/20/2015 2:42 PM

His ran well without a re-map. MXA did a big bore test a while back and had similar results with the CRF250 big bore, whereas the other makes required a re-map. I'd suggest that you test it as-is, before you spend money on a re-map.

Added reply in a thread No toil on old filters? 2/20/2015 11:25 AM

I've had dirt suck though a brand new air filter that was oiled with no-toil. Never had that happen in 40 years of riding, so back to Belray/Maxima filter oils for me.
