I think if he does all 3 of those things he will love the spread & delivery & the roll on power. My bike Fn flat out hauls but I also have much more done to it now but those 3 things were the first things I tried & I was super happy with ... more »

a pic from 2010 when I had conventional froks on it. I loved these forks but I kept blowing fork seals so I took them off & bought a set of used kit stuff & had Factory Connection redo it for me.

Look into putting a single ring YZ250 piston in it. It's the Racers Choice piston kit #808, that will give you like 1 HP on the dyno & way more snap & over run. Next put the biggest flywheel weight you can find on that bike & you see a much ... more »

I started with a brand new 2007 RM250. Ron Bushey (John Dowd's old mechanic did the engine & assembled the entire bike for me) Sandblasted the frame & clear powdercoated it. Talon hubs with yellow Excel rims & with Excel spline drive spokes ... more »

This is only pic I have of my 2007 RM250 when it was all apart. I bought it brand new & took it & stripped to the frame & had it sandblasted & had all the welds rewelded & then we clear powdercoated it so you can see all

I owned & raced a TM300 in 2003 & I know that the new 2012 300 probably has very little in common with the one I raced in 03 but these are my thoughts on the 300 that I owned. The motor was a rocket but signed off way too early so I contacted

I have a 45 pilot & a special needle which I can get you the number for if you need & it definitely cleans up the richness in middle & a 168 main & the air screw at 2 turns out & it starts first kick every time & runs perfect ... more »

Very Cool looking KTM! & love your retro Answer gear. I was sponsored by them all through the 80' & early 90's & as soon I saw Mickey Dymond wearing that particular gear in I think 1988 or 89 I knew I had to have it to :-)

A friend did video a part of a race I was in a few weeks ago at MX207 in Maine & that's only video that I know of my bike running & on the track. I will text him right now cuz I've never seen it. Hopefully it came good & I can post it for ... more »

I'm definitely not blindly brand loyal as somebody wrote either cuz I've had a YZF450 & a TM300 2 stroke & I raced a Cannondale 440 for Cannaondale in 03 & I've raced Honda's for 3 yrs & I had the KX450F in 09..... just sayin :-) I'm ... more »

That is a BADASS Yamaha & they definitely look like Showa kit forks. I have a set a kit stuff on the front & rear of my RM. What is done to your YZ's motor? That is definitely one of the cooliest looking Yamaha's that Ive ever seen. Love the ... more »

Yes, it's a fake coned pipe, long story there :-) & Yes, because of the serious bump in compression I have to run straight race gas, but we made that decision when doing some final motor & I was ok with it. Thanks everyone for all the compliments ... more »

Ya, I think that he could definitely improve the 2012 250SX motor & based on what I've read & heard it won't take much either cuz you're starting out with a very nice performing 52hp engine

Yes, I'm a touch over 6' & I've had the taller seats on all of my RM's
