Make sure you have a metric tap set on hand if you go this route, it's very easy to cross-thread bolts in aluminum until you really get used to the feel.

Anyone have an update on #899 Kevin Uebrick? Crashed through the fence after the plunge in the final 250A moto.

Added reply in a thread Pressing in linkage bearings 8/18/2014 11:30 AM

Getting them in is 10x easier than getting them out... I've done it many times with a bench vise. I use heat to take them apart, but I always press them in with everything at room temp.

Added reply in a thread Sunline Folding Levers 7/15/2014 10:07 AM

I prefer the ARC as well. I've used the Sunlines before, but they wear out faster than the ARCs (get floppy-like). Neither are fully bend-proof.

Added reply in a thread Revalve worth it? 6/16/2014 6:53 AM

Does anyone have a link to videos of before/after a re-valve? Sort of like Rekluse did showing lap-times and stuff. It would be cool to see some high-speed footage of before/after, lap-times, etc.

Started new thread Gear drying rack ideas 4/30/2014 5:33 AM

I want to build something to simple that I can hang my helmet/boots/chest protector/etc. on that I can have a fan blow on them overnight to dry them out. Thinking a vertical rack with a fan on the bottom blowing up with boots upside-down above them, ... more »

Added reply in a thread yz250 stiff clutch pull 2/5/2014 12:25 PM

Check cable routing, if the bend is just slightly too sharp it can make the pull much harder. Just something like going in front of a radiator bolt vs. behind it or vice versa can make a big difference.

Added reply in a thread Practice track ethics 1/28/2014 7:45 AM

The "hold your line" is good advice, but people hear this as "pretend nobody else is on the track". I always have an idea who is ahead of me and behind me. For example, if there is a triple going into a corner in which people are having a hard time making ... more »

I have a '12 which is basically the same motor which I race completely stock. I tend to rev the bike, and although it doesn't pull nearly as hard as something like a 14 YZ450, it's not like I need to short-shift it like my straight-piped Harley when ... more »

All dirtbikes are money pits. People look back on 2-strokes and remember only the good stuff, like when you reminisce about your batshit-crazy ex you only remember the fun times you had.

Added reply in a thread Linkage 1/10/2014 12:16 PM

And if you do this regularly the bearing last a long time. Interval depends on riding conditions and washing techniques, I've found 20-25 hours intervals on linkage works for me, swingarm every other time. It's the cheapest maintenance, probably under ... more »
