Moisture, eh? I think I'll be ok in Arizona! haha Actually, keeping it on the concrete here probably does more good than harm. The temp of the concrete stays more consistent throughout the day than the air in my garage. Temp fluctuation is what causes ... more »

Most racers understand that MX bikes require a relatively high amount of maintenance vs. the actual time you ride the bike. They clean their filters every ride, etc. I can't tell you how many "bashers" I've seen that never clean their filter or they ... more »

Added reply in a thread Pro Circuit YZ250 2 stroke pipes 4/10/2015 8:54 AM
Yeah, if the FMF had the over-rev of the PC, it would be an unreal pipe. The FMF does fall of a little at the extreme top. I've found it's important to tune the overrev with the mainjet size. I'm old and I don't have time to be doing top ends so I dont ... more »

I run the FMF Factory Fatty on my YZ250. Haven't had any bending issues at all. And I think the regular Fatty is stronger, made of thicker metal. I tried a PC pipe and shorty on my bike. Didn't like it as much as the FMF setup. Everyone will tell you ... more »

"Pressing" crankcases together? That might be your problem right there. Always works best to "pull" the crank into the 2nd case rather than try to press the case half down onto the crank.

When you take it apart you will see how the wheel moves a lifter arm that lifts the slide up. Something in this mechanism or the slide itself could be jammed, dirty, or worn out. The slide itself has roller wheels on the side and a floating plate on ... more »
Added reply in a thread YZ 250 Question 4/6/2015 1:36 PM
Yes, it could definitely be a notched basket or notched center hub. In order to both disengage and engage smoothly, the plates have to be able to float freely. Any notches prevent them from doing this. Easy enough to pop the cover off and have a look. ... more »

I have 2 bike shoes in the back of my van. Been using them for 20 years. I also use tie downs on the bikes lightly to keep them from swaying. If I don't use the tie downs the bikes will sway 6" or more side to side and the bars will bang into the walls. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Did I buy the wrong brake pads? 3/31/2015 7:54 AM
Damn that's a crazy amount of wear for 1 race. It's kind of odd that one side wore so much more than the other. Perhaps your caliper is binding on the floating pins?

Or just condensation. I've seen this happen on other brand 4-strokes as well, especially in humid areas. Condensation forms on the inside of the valve cover when the bike sits and then pukes out the breather when you run it.

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 »
