The cops are damned if they do and damned if they don't. If they chase a pack of dirtbikes and some 15yr old kid without a helmet crashes and dies they will be crucified for killing a kid for doing nothing other than riding a dirtbike.

That's an AMA Pro rule. Don't have that rule in local yokel amateur series. I've never raced but this is what I've been told.

PJ1 makes "factory match" frame paint. It used to be available in YZ blue but looking around now seems all I can find is Glass Black and Clear. http://www.chaparral-racing.com/Product/pj1-factory-o-e-m-match-frame-paints/353-6127.aspx

Good point. Next time I race with you I am going to place a boulder in front of your gate while you are out on the parade lap. No rule against it, right?

Sounds like a nickname for a girl who gets around a little too much at the dunes.

What is this world coming to when we can't trust the integrity of people named Dirt Bike Rell, Banshee Pooch, and their compadres?

He got what he deserved for revving that 4-stroke like he was clearing out a 2-stroke.

A lot of what is posted in this thread just shows the lingering animosity from WW-II. Maybe it will go away some day. Almost everyone from that generation is gone or will be soon.

They sound ever so slightly different. The FMF is oval and the PC is round so the FMF has more packing volume. What really affects the sound more than the brand is how tightly or loosely they are packed. If the packing is too tight they get that ratty ... more »

I'm a little shaky on the particulars here, but I believe the KYB's have a set screw on the lug. After the lug is threaded on to the tube, the set screw is driven into the threads of the tube to lock it in place. So, the threads on the tube are messed ... more »

Generally, aftermarket shorty silencers for 125's use just the one mount and the 250's use both,
Added reply in a thread Stupid Silencer Q 10/25/2014 9:26 PM
Referencing my YZ250, the PC shorty and FMF shorty are almost the same exact length can and they both use both of the mounting points. The PC has a shorter stinger section on front that moves the can forward and shortens the overall length of the exhaust ... more »

The first time I visited the Arizona I had to politely remind some Japanese tourists of the proper way to act at that memorial. The second time I went it was some fat American heifers shooting their mouths off about how wasted they were going to get ... more »

The lugs on the bottom of YZ KYB forks are not really removable and replaceable like the ones on Showa forks. You basically destroy them in the process of taking them apart. In order to do the swap of forks you need the caliper mounting bracket from ... more »

Frozen swingarm pivots are a bitch. The problem is that the shaft is frozen solid to the steel collars that are inside the bearings. So heating the swingarm itself is pretty ineffective. If you applied enough heat to actually get to the steel collars ... more »

Yeah, either dropped the cylinder or was tapping on it with a hammer to get it loose. Or maybe dropped the bike on the right side and the pipe got smashed in there and pushed up against it.

I pulled a small trailer with 1 or 2 bikes with 4-banger cars for years. No problem. Don't try to go fast up big hills and be careful of overloading the brakes when stopping. Biggest thing with the WRX will be to stay out of the boost. You can easily ... more »
