Added reply in a thread understanding KTMs (and other enduro type questions) 4/16/2014 10:40 PM

I rode a friend's DRZ 400 and was very dissapointed, the DRZ, XR, etc, are not even in the same ballpark offroad as a KTM. They do make an ok fireroad bike, and are tough as a brick though.

Ed, Please don't run the club through a Facebook site, use a regular web site that interested people can go to. Many over 50ish guys are anti-facebook. You'll get more interest that way. I'll try to make it on that weekend.

Added reply in a thread What would you do in my situation? 4/2/2014 11:58 PM

Sell the CRF250 engine, find a CR500 motor and stuff it into the CRF frame. Then you'll have an AF500, and you can ride the 125 while you do the

Added reply in a thread Bone stock RM 250 FMF vs. Bills pipe 3/26/2014 1:49 PM

My 03 RM250 had a FMF SST on it, it was smooth and revved pretty high. I changed to a PC works pipe, and wow, what a difference. The PC pipe hit alot harder in the low mid and pulled harder into the topend. The SST revved higher, but the PC pipe allowed ... more »

As far as footpegs go, I bought a set of aftermarket wide seel pegs for a YZ426-450, on Ebay for about $35, they fit my 87 CR500 perfect, bolted right on.

Engine looks cool, I stripped mine to a natural finish, then added the black Ignition ... more »

Did anyone else notice at the end of the 450 main that they showed RV win, and then went to a bunch of commercials, when they came back they were interviewing RV........no coverage of 2nd and 3rd place battle, all the other top 10 battles, I had to wait ... more »

The stock forks work better than the same period USD forks. Keep the frame the correct Honda RED/Orange, it's worth more that way. I have an 87 CR500 I'm finishing now. Blue CR seat, blue fork gaitors, Renthal bars, etc. my gold rims help the cool factor. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is this a good Vintage buy for Hare Scrambles? 2/20/2014 10:41 PM

I had a friend back in high school who had one. I was racing Yamahas at the time. The MT was heavy, slow reving with the heavy flywheel, no over rev, low and midrange, would hardly wheelie in second with stock gearing. My 73 DT-2 would eat it up. It ... more »

Added reply in a thread I hate race secret's 2/12/2014 8:41 PM

I rebuilt a blown 03 RM125, crank kit, replated cylinder, etc. I have no detectable vibration thru the bars, per se. I do have a 5 oz. flywheel weight and rubber bar mounts with pro tapers on it. If your 125 vibrates, I think somethings wrong. I also ... more »

It's my understanding that the 87-88 engine was the most powerful CR500's, with the longer rod motor. The 85 was explosive, though. I have an 87 CR500 that I just restored. I could be

In his interview with Weege, Chad Reed said The Dunge was on it, and if he had not dropped it, nobody would have gotten a glimpse of Dunge because he was gone. Or something to that effect. I don't think he was that agressive, just going in hard instead ... more »

I just put a set of aftermarket wider pegs from a YZ426F, etc., on my 87 CR500. They fit perfect, even the stock springs worked. A huge improvement.

Added reply in a thread Do Nothing Dungey 1/4/2014 11:09 PM

Wow, what a bunch of fickle race fans. He set a couple of the fastest lap times in the main and ran down Kenny to within a couple of seconds. Another five laps and .......... anyway, the Dunge will be there in the end. And I hope Stewie's not hurt.
