Millsaps, hands down. Everybody is bound to have a bad race with some crashes, even RV. He's gone out of 2 series with injuries. While extrememly fast, he hasn't shown to be immune to taking a digger. Millsaps rode awesome. But, the chances of all major ... more »
You're trying to say your point was proven while loosing a bet? Suck it up & admit you were wrong. Everybody falls, it's part of SX. Consistency wins Championships.
I believe so.. But, judging by the look of the bike & the toolbox in the back of Short's truck, it's the teams job to maintain it at the races?
Purely a guess.... Wondering if the team is going under but got Short a bike for a few weeks while he shops for another ride & isn't left stranded.
How can you tell anything from a ackward shot, especially with James sitting on it. The more sag, the more the front will appear to be raked out. With the amount of weight Stewart likes to get up on the front wheel turning, the rear becomes pretty unloaded. ... more »

Who does finish the season these days: Last years champion didn't complete the season. The 2nd place finisher was out for 6 weeks. The people that should have finished 3rd though 7th all went out with injuries (Reed, Windham, Stewart & Canard). Not ... more »
Oh man, sorry for your loss. Our 3 year old swallowed a battery on 12/21, spent the night in the ER. He'll be OK, but I think flashes of what you're going through went through my head. Best wishes for the healing process.
Not saying gaskets swell, saying they squish. Never asked which gaskets are good.
So, you're trashing something you've never used? Glad I'm talking to someone with experience. Yes, thickness is important. So, I'm sure you threw a mic on it & did that on used gaskets that had been compacted. You're so perfect, I'm sure you've never ... more »
As I said before, wasn't paying attention when I did the first order. I've never had an issue with the Tusk Gaskets. Probably done 100+ top-ends / engine rebuilds with them, never an issue.
Doesn't a longer stroke increase torque & a shorter stroke increase RPM? So, by shortening the stroke you're also decreasing torque which decreases the calculated HP? I know you're right with the trend of higher revving motors, but how are they maintaining ... more »
I paid 65. But you're right, that's better for an OEM kit than I would have thought. I ordered a Tusk top-end kit for it tonight for $24.00.
Plus close to another 50 for the top-end.
I think the only pressure, is the pressure he put's on himself (which is probably allot). It depends on his confidence. If he's feeling really good & knows his speed is there, I bet the pressure won't affect him too much. If he's not feeling that ... more »
Not reasonable for a complete engine set
I've used them all, never had an issue till Winderosa.
Guess I wasn't paying close attention when I ordered a gasket set for a yzf. Says made in USA on the box, but not too impressed with the quality. Getting past fitment issues, the sealant on the headgasket was not even, a little gummy in spots... Tried

It's not a 2 stroke - no seals. The 4 strokes slip out pretty easy, new or old bearings.
Also the base of the Radiator Shrouds where they rub the frame.. A high hour CRF will have grooves worn in the frame from the shrouds. Also where the cables rub on the VIN # @ the neck.
Reliable 250f? Go with the Yamaha, there's a reason that engine has changed little over the past 10 years. If it has to be CRF, I would stick to 07 & newer. 04, 05 & 6 seem to suck valves into the heads easier, needing more frequent adjustment. ... more »
