Put some Dunlop MX3S on there. My bike has 135 hours on the frame. I’ve done 2 pistons and a bottom end all before they went out. Replaced the gears also before they sent out. I had a shift stop break, but that was a fluke in my opinion. The upgrades ... more »

I think it was only $10-$15k? But it was enough to get him a bike then eventually back on a team. It’s a Really cool story.

When I was a kid(5-6years old) I was at a drag race with my dad and my he asked John Force to sign his poster and write, “To Joe”. John said no, wrote his name, handed it back and walked away. To this day my dad still doesn’t like him.

Just find a larger diameter hose. I doubt that’s a specific part made for that.

If The 16 has AER forks, the main difference is the 18 has the mapping switch and traction control. Besides the orange frame and different graphics. I think some valving changes on the suspension. If you can maybe have them come down on the 18 in price, ... more »

I would imagine any oil at 60:1 will work fine. I mix my KTM at 60:1 but use motorex.

The TWS shootout proves to me how good the top 4 bikes are. Just a matter of opinion, riding style and feel you like. Like stated above, everyone should take the bike opinions as simple advice not words to live by. I would be surprised if Keefer Tested ... more »

I was in the same mindset as you when riding the Honda because recently I have been riding my 125. To me the Honda is like the 125 on steroids. I didn’t mind reving and working for it a bit and for the record your not working like a 125, it’s just more, ... more »

Hahaha very ironic, I never thought of that. It would make more sense to connect to the RV hook ups if available.

Yeah, I don't think the material changes the performance. He said they can't make the full carbon canisters because the way they are so tucked into the number plates and frame it would actually get too hot for the carbon. I guess it's the same on the ... more »

A representative from Yoshimura said the bike is very sensitive to each pipes diameter and taper. The 2 exhausts are not only for engine performance but the bikes chassis is designed with that in mind they said. Going 2 into 1 would change the chassis

I'd say my 2016 KTM with Yosh exhaust, hi comp piston, head work, mapped on VP is a mix between a slightly weaker version of the YZ bottom end along with the KTM/Honda top end. But that's also $2,000+ worth of work. You can pretty much carry 3rd gear ... more »

It's hard to get a camera that shoots good slow motion in that price range. Also keep in mind that when a camera shoots 1080 60p that's not slow motion, that's just a shooting mode. Look for 48fps, 60FPS, 120fps, that means, frames per second and will ... more »
