Added reply in a thread Rocky Mountain Good/ Local Shop WTF? 5/22/2013 7:01 AM
I feel bad not supporting local shops, but RM is so much better/cheaper/faster/easier. For example. I needed some Yamalube premix I get for $10 from RM. All the local shop had was Bel Ray H1R for $25 after tax.

Does the place that repaired it commonly fix MX rads? Most leaks I've seen are from crash damage. Some are caused by other parts rubbing together; I've seen a pinhole made from a plastic radiator shroud rubbing against the radiator over time.

Just get a new Tusk one, they're like $10 and look just like the OEM switch.
Added reply in a thread 2005 yz 125 trans oil. 5/3/2013 7:21 AM
The amount on the side of the engine is probably the total amount, like after you split cases. The amount you add for a normal oil change is a little less. I never use those check bolts myself. If the oil isn't perfectly distributed or if the bike is ... more »

Yeah, if you can find the oversized Chinese ones you're set. I got a new pair for $70 delivered. Crash tested the shit out of them, work great. May be stuck with OEM on your exotic European machine, though.

Gaerne's last me at least 2 seasons, and I ride A LOT. Might try SG10s again next rather than the SG12s I have now. Both are damn good boots.

This season I was thinking do more practicing than racing. Until the first race, which reminded how awesome racing is!
Added reply in a thread Clutch basket question 4/15/2013 6:20 AM
If it wasn't causing you any issues I'd say use it as is. I've seen them way worse than that, and the bike was still ridable but difficult to leave smoothly from after being stopped. Filing the basket can theoretically cause more clutch chatter which ... more »

For what bike? I have had best luck with OEM. Although I recently picked up a Tusk kit as a spare for my YZ125, I might go ahead and install it even though my current clutch is fine just to test it out.

Are you downshifting as soon as you let off the gas and switch to braking? I race a 450 but ride a YZ125 for fun. My 125 has decent engine braking especially whan I downshift into 1st.

I don't remember which kind I bought, but I had good luck with some from either a drug store or walmart in a pair of SG10s.

Added reply in a thread cant set holeshot device 3/13/2013 9:19 AM
I've found these are very difficult to set without a helper, even the new works connection style. As mentioned, the button may be lower than needed. Best way to set it is to get a hot chick to help press the button.

They say you can use OEM rear but not front? I used Excel spokes when I laced A60s to stock RMZ hubs. I found BTO to be cheapest I could find for these, too. And you get 10% off. Here is the fitment chart: http://www.rkexcelamerica.com/mx_excel_rims_spokes.html ... more »

You should be fine with the stock springs. I was 90 kg when I had a 2010 RMZ450 and ran the stock springs. Did the original owner have the suspension re-valved?

PB Blaster and a blowtorch on the nipples, while holding the spoke with vise-grips should get them free. However the spokes will get chewed up from the vise-grips. You should be able to find some individual spokes/nipples to replace the damaged ones. ... more »

Personally I wouldn't JB weld that. I would either get it professionally welded, which would most likely require splitting cases and removing all bearings and seals, or cut my losses and part the bike out.
