Added reply in a thread How strong of a pressure washer... 11/20/2013 10:34 AM
I have a big Dewalt gas unit I use at home, but have a small electric I take to the track because it takes less water to wash the bike (which I must bring with me). But it does take a lot more time, probably 4 times longer.
Added reply in a thread YZ250 Wheel Options 11/17/2013 5:51 PM
Cheapest option is probably used complete OEM wheels on ebay. Then use your current wheels as emergency spares. You can usually get brand new or nearly new for like $400. Good rims and spokes are more than that, especially if you pay to have them built. ... more »

If parting it out anyway, go ahead and open the engine and figure out what was wrong. I've parted out 2 RMZ450 motors that were non-fixable and got way more money that I thought I would.
Added reply in a thread To put money into older 2 stroke? 11/11/2013 7:09 AM
Personally, I would do neither of those options. I'd fix the 2-stroke myself instead of sending it to someone and keep it stock. And keep the RMZ stock, replacing parts that are worn when needed. "Accessorize" sounds to me like shiny anodized parts.
Added reply in a thread Loretta's 2015? 30+ class 11/9/2013 6:11 PM
It may state that, but I personally know of at least one guy that held a pro card in the 90s that raced LL in the Vet B/C class a couple years ago. I don't think he ever actually raced nationals. And prior to 2006 there are no AMA records that are easy ... more »

Lorettas 30+ is B/C. You need a good excuse to be considered a B rider again. Riders that scored points would probably have a hard argument...
Added reply in a thread Honda CRF450...best year? 11/7/2013 10:26 AM
I think best value would be an '11 or '12 at $3500 (ish). Or get an '07 or '08 for $2000 or so.

I have a 6x12 fully equipped with water tanks, workbench, external speakers with sattelite radio, etc etc. But I RARELY use it because it kills my mileage. With the 5.3 in my 07 GMC 1500 mileage drops from 17-18 down to 12 if I drive like an old lady ... more »

I have a heavy $20 Primary Drive steel sprocket on my practice wheels, and I can't tell a difference between that and the Renthal on my race wheels. The Primary Drive is cheap and lasts long but it looks G-A-Y.

Many mechanical DNFs last year with borrowed bikes. A great running Vet bike has a way shorter life-span when ridden by a fast kid.

Added reply in a thread 2012 Crf 450 Throttle sticking...Help 9/3/2013 7:28 AM
Check the cam portion of the throttle tube, the cable can slip off the side and bind between the cam and the housing. The throttle housing may be damaged from the crash.

Yeah, on one of my old bikes I had about 10 washers which pushed the muffler out quite a bit to fix this problem. Interesting it didn't do with the stock one, is the PC fatter or more round?

Seats don't need to be cut if they're in good shape. Pro-X SS intakes and springs work great. And I couldn't tell any difference in power versus Ti intakes. For $145 total it's worth a shot.
