I had a friend who was born with one and raced. yeah, you can do it, like VB188 said he does, but it's not ideal. I guess you are more prone to fatigue, heat injury, etc in extreme conditions. From watching the video, I kinda surmised that the lady has ... more »

Added reply in a thread FI 2 Stroke.. 3/23/2015 9:40 PM
The 2-stroke loyalists are always on here saying that the high costs of 4-strokes are what is killing MX yet here you guys are trying to make 2-strokes more complicated and expensive. So which is it? What is the advantage to putting Fi on a 2-stroke? ... more »
Added reply in a thread FI 2 Stroke.. 3/23/2015 1:18 PM
The advantage 4-strokes have over 2-strokes is smooth power delivery which gives increased traction and control. Adding FI to a 2-stroke and increasing it's power and throttle response is only going to amplify the negative traits of the 2-stroke and ... more »

That makes sense. I was doing it wrong!
Added reply in a thread Best Chain Breaker? 3/21/2015 8:31 AM
I've found that this type sucks. It pushes the pin through the near side but because it does not support the back of the far side the pin cannot break free and it bends the plate out. A real hassle. I've been using the standard Motion Pro one for years

I think it's the GYTR cams that are made by Cosworth for Yamaha. They can be bought alone or with the complete GYTR head. Maybe your bike has the GYTR head. Does it have GYTR stamped in the side of the head?
Added reply in a thread gaerne boot fit? 3/19/2015 9:13 PM
I'd get the Size 11 if I was you. I am pretty much in the same boat. I get the 1/2 size up and then I usually get thick athletic shoe insoles and put those in. That takes up the little bit of extra space.
Added reply in a thread What was the spray you coat the bike in so no dirt or mud will stick? 3/16/2015 7:26 PM
The best part about spraying WD-40 up under your fenders is it teaches you to carry momentum in the corners from all the overspray that gets on the brake rotors.

You live in Austria, right? Load up that bottom end and drive over to the KTM factory with it. Demand a new one and camp on their front lawn with a big sign that says "KTM Screwed me over!" until they give you one.

I run Bel-Ray gear saver in my 2-stroke and CRF tranny's. Been using it for 30+ yrs with zero probs. Tried Maxima MTL in the past and it worked well also. Same with the Honda gear oil in the nipple bottle. I have my suspicions that the Honda oil is re-labeled ... more »

Usual suspect is clogged fuel filter in the tank or the in line filter on the high pressure hose from the tank tot he injector (if Yamaha has one).

Very similar to me. I bought a very nice carbon hardtail 29'er about 2 years ago. Rode it a bunch. I started minding how much it bounced around and jarred me on the rocks and rough downhills and how it transferred every single bump straight to my hips ... more »

It sounds like you're likely in your 40's or 50's and already have some aches and pains. In that case, I say do yourself a huge favor and go straight to full suspension. Damn hardtails beat the piss out of you. The hard part will be finding a decent ... more »
