Added reply in a thread Cycra High Impact Skid Plate 11/25/2014 7:30 PM

To me, plastic guards seem better than nothing but not as good as aluminum. I landed off a jump directly on to a rock one time. The bike compressed right onto it. It caved in my WC plate right up to the cases. I think if I had a plastic plate it wouldn't ... more »

Added reply in a thread Anyone else remember these ridiculous Krause Kannon pipes? 11/25/2014 7:22 PM

I had a Krause Cannon on my 83 YZ80. It was a crude, unfinished cone pipe with only like 5 cones and big angular welds.

Added reply in a thread Do you grease the threads on most bolts? 11/25/2014 1:57 PM

Either will work fine. A little really goes a long way. if you get the big can it will last you 15 years. Especially living in AZ. We don't get corrosion here. You really only need anti-seize on your chain adjuster bolts, spoke nipples and a little bit ... more »

Added reply in a thread Whats next for this 06 YZ250? 11/25/2014 1:38 PM

I have a 2006 also. Tried the FMF Factory/Titanium-2 combo back to back with the Pro Circuit Factory/304 shorty combo. Preferred the FMF setup. Much broader power and better feel and really didn't feel like it was giving up much if any top end to the ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2002 Honda CR250R Rebuild 11/24/2014 10:57 AM

Wow, there must be some serious hours on that bike. Look at the amount of material removed from the clutch cover! The Honda text is almost totally worn off. Is there anything special about the frame other than the skid plate mounts?

Added reply in a thread Traction Mx RM250 Retro build 11/22/2014 9:52 AM

Little trivia.... see on the sideplates where they said "Motocross"? On the Japanese domestic models that instead said "Slingshot" like the GSXR road bikes. I had one over there at the time.

Added reply in a thread Indoor Cycling Trainer 11/22/2014 9:32 AM

I have one of the Nashbar fluid trainers. I think it's on the lower end. It doesn't have adjustable resistance. The amount of resistance it has feels like a 15% grade uphill. It doesn't matter what gear you have the bike in it is hard to pedal. If you ... more »

Added reply in a thread Sorry, had to share this CL gem 11/20/2014 8:13 PM

Not even broken in or on the powerband yet he knows it will rip your arms off and outrun any 450 or 500. I guess he doesn't consider the engine to be broken in even after pulling 80hp on the dyno. 80- horse is pretty impressive for not even getting on ... more »

Added reply in a thread Dumbest thing your riding buddy ever did 11/14/2014 1:32 PM

Buddy wore contacts. We were at a mud race and he had no tear offs or roll offs. I loaned him a pair of goggles with roll-offs. 1st lap he pulls the cord and the entire roll comes flying out and is flying behind him like a 25 foot long streamer. He could ... more »

Hmmm, says it's a teflon based lube. Have you tried any of the teflon lubes available in the states? Anything come close?

Added reply in a thread who has tried the Think Technology Seat Foam? 11/12/2014 6:36 AM

The foam would be a no-go for me. I have really short legs and one of the things I like best about my 2012 CRF450 is that it's one of the smallest most compact bikes around. The stock seat is on the soft side but that's a good thing for me. Helps reach ... more »

Added reply in a thread Van or Truck - Which is Best and Why? 11/11/2014 6:43 PM

In a bare cargo van, the inner body walls are loaded with all kinds of holes and places to hook tie downs. Or you can drill the floor and mount tie down points.

Added reply in a thread who has tried the Think Technology Seat Foam? 11/11/2014 10:49 AM

Be careful with that logic about seat foam stiffness being an important factor. I tried to tell people on here that it played into a rider's feel of the bike and perception of suspension and frame harshness and damn near got ran off the board.

What spring rates are you running? Are they custom made? Serious question not shit talking.
