Pro Taper grip glue is just like super glue. Basically the same thing.

I am surprised to hear about all these 6'1"-6'2" guys on size-large frames. I have 2 friends in that height range and both fit perfectly on XL frames. If they were on Large frames they would be just about max'd on the seat post and have a large drop ... more »

You know, what's funny is when I had my Motion Pro T's in Japan all my Japanese friends thought they were awesome and better than their Kowa's. Grass is always greener. Good luck tracking down the holy grail of T handles.

You deciphered the diagram correctly with respect to the sizes and part numbers. I lived in Japan for 10 years and used these a bunch. There is nothing special about them compared to the Motion Pro's. Actually, the Kowa's seemed to round off or mushroom ... more »

On the wheel size thing, I notice no one has even asked how big you are or what size frame you will be riding. To me, that is a bigger factor in selecting wheel size than the old "26 turns quicker 29 rolls better" logic. Examples, I have seen 5'0" girls ... more »

Added reply in a thread Motostuff 280mm front disk 8/25/2014 1:06 PM

You're comparing a 280mm to a 270mm. The only other 280mm I am aware of is the EBC unit and I suspect that is the one MotoStuff was referring to. Here's the actual quote from their site: "Trick lightweight design of the Moto Stuff Blade System weighs ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tips for pressing out lower stem bearing 8/23/2014 3:59 PM

So, this means you're putting the bearing on there with no grease in it? Otherwise the heat gun would cook it all out if you are getting the inner race hot enough to expand. Not a big deal, but trying to pack the bearing with grease is a PITA once it's ... more »

I feel bad for people who have to use pills habitually to live. I know it may start off as a necessity, but I honestly feel many of them have been on them for so long they don't even know if the pain would still be there if they stopped. Or they have ... more »

No way. They help keep mud off your levers, grips, and gloves from roost.

Added reply in a thread 110-90-19 to Big for a 125? 8/15/2014 12:49 PM

There are 110/80-19 tires specifically intended to be put on the skinnier 1.85" rim of a 250F (same rim as a 125). The 110/90-19 is intended for use on a 2.15" rim on a 450 or 250 2-stroke. That being said, I have the Bridgestone 403 in 100/90-19 like ... more »

If your kid is not dominating... absolutely dominating... on the local level, race for fun because he has no future as a top level Pro. I see local kids who have to be reminded to stand up, shift gears sometimes, and sit front in the pocket of the seat ... more »

I saw the full photo spread on this one before. The wheel chock has big anchor bolts going right through the roof with nuts up against the ceiling.

Added reply in a thread Sweet fmf titanium pipe's 8/14/2014 12:31 PM

The front stinger portion is likely titanium as well since it is titanium on their standard off-the-shelf Titanium-2 silencers that they sell. So basically, it looks like they took a standard titanium-2 silencer and replaced the aluminum body with a ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is this just how 2 strokes are?? 8/13/2014 12:54 PM

I have a 2006. I replaced my shift stopper before it came apart. Honestly, if it was me I would split the cases and do it right. But that's based on my personal situation of being able to do it myself and not being too worried about paying for whatever ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is this just how 2 strokes are?? 8/13/2014 11:05 AM

If that bearing was gone on the stopper, that means it came apart and went through the tranny. The only right way to fix it is to split the cases, inspect everything (gears, shafts, bearings, etc) and replace anything that shows signs of damage. The ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is this just how 2 strokes are?? 8/13/2014 10:50 AM

Couple thoughts. You should never have to use 1st on an MX track. If you feel you need 1st gear, you either need to carry more momentum in the turns or get lower gearing. For reference, stock is 13/48. Make sure someone didn't put something weird on ... more »

Added reply in a thread 320mm rotor too much? 8/13/2014 9:36 AM

320mm is for supermoto. Way too much power for the available traction of a skinny knobby on dirt. And it will get destroyed in ruts. No one runs a 320 for MX. The 280mm available from Motostuff should be more than enough power for anyone for MX.

The 01 CR250 uses the Mikuni TMX carb. Same carb that is used on many other bikes including all modern YZ125's. Luckily, the TMX has a replaceable needle and seat for the float. Likely you may need this. Honda sells the 2 parts separately but Yamaha ... more »
