Added reply in a thread A/C Separation shoulder 5/2/2016 10:38 PM

I'd give it 6-8 weeks of rest and low weight loading. Talk to a PT tech, see how they recommend rehabbing. Shoulders are tricky when it comes to repair. I tore my rotator and every Doc I talked to convinced me to leave it alone. That was in 1992. I still ... more »

Yeah, I'm doing a 79 RM250 for this fall's Vintage season in Florida. Everyone who seems serious about racing these upgrade to 43mm forks. I've put 87 CR500 43mm cartridge forks on mine. I'm sure I'll go stiffer as I'm 200lbs, myself. Glad to see others ... more »

The Silencer separates from the pipe, it slide's onto the end of the pipe. Those mufflers are welded shut, so they are not repack-able. Do a google search, check the vintage websites, there are choices out there. The YZ's are well supported.

Ian Harrison will most likely take over Roger's position at KTM. Both are very happy where they are. MXA has an interview with Ian in the May issue.

His attorney fee's are what are going to slam him, if they charge him. I would say it was photo shopped, done in a studio. Other than the starting sequence, and the finishing parking scene, done on a desktop, period. Go chase some real criminals. What ... more »

Throw a picture up. Is it air cooled, water cooled, etc. That will help sell it.

Typically, here in Florida, if Chad only got a conditional use permit instead of an actual rezoning, the new owner would have to go through the same process as what Chad did, if he wanted to use the property the same. It's never easy. Been there, done ... more »

I wonder if his medication is effecting his balance, visual coordination, etc. It seems that since we found out about his meds, he's had some problems. I know my meds effect my riding, and not for the better. Feel for the guy.

My RM125 was rebuilt with a Wiseco, check the alignment and run out, it met the OEM specs well within tolerance. Been in the bike going on 3 years now, runs perfect, revs to the moon, super smooth. Just my experience.

Maybe the guy's a grower out of Colorado, which makes it legal, for the most part. They can't bank any cash due to Federal laws, so maybe he's sitting on a pile. Good thing to do, anyways. Money is going to go somewhere, this is as good as anywhere else. ... more »
