Does adding a flywheel weight have any effect on the longevity of the motor? My first thought was that it could maybe add a little life since the crank would have a little more inertia, possibly taking some of the load off? Looking to get one regardless, ... more »

This oversized rotor has really good reviews and is within my budget, thinking about pulling the trigger. The stock brakes suck, and I'm sure I need some new pads too. What do you guys think? http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/Driven-Blade-Oversize-Floating-Front-Brake-Rotor ... more »

We're all biased towards our own bikes but out of all the bikes I've owned or ridden my 04 is the best overall. I like to ride it as much as I like to look at it. Gonna tune my jetting a little more aggressive and throw a flywheel weight on.

Seems like you can train "all you want", but there's no real substitute for actually racing the main event laps. Look at Deano at Daytona. His training with Ryno is paying off, but what do you really do to prepare for 20 laps on a gnarly track against ... more »

Thank you sir, as do I. I take trips to the garage to "get water" sometimes.

That surprises me, they've been advertising that race since A1. Almost as bad as 2014 MEC commercials during the 2013 MEC.

Ah, I didn't think of that. That makes sense. If and when I do get one, I'll try to keep an eye on my crank bearings and catch any problems before they turn catastrophic.

How do you explain the podium interviews then? Is Villopoto tucked away somewhere, getting sweaty and dirty for his post-race talk, while his stunt double goes out and whoops up on everyone? Who did you hear this from? Did you stamp it? Do you even know ... more »

I'm sorry, but that's fucking ridiculous. Seeing useless "centralization of mass" shit get forced down our throats gets old too. I just can't understand why you'd come on here and delete comments from the people who bring you daily traffic. Our comments ... more »

It's true that they have very little low-end, but I think it's deceptive at the same time. The electronic power valve doesn't really tear your arms out of your sockets like most 250 motors (from my limited experience) but I find that when I'm in a drag ... more »

I read that having the idle too high can have this effect. There's a special way to get the pilot and idle speed set to where you obtain a good pilot setting without the bike loading. I haven't figured it out, but I know it can be done. If the weather's ... more »

No doubt, it's not a fair comment anyway. This class is going to be dependent on Youthstream keeping it around longer than the intro year. It's kind of a "no man's land" class, but I could see it gaining some momentum as more opportunities open up and ... more »

Couldn't have said it better myself. I didn't have an '01, but I did have a YZ250. The motor is stronger, but when geared the same, the difference isn't as much. But the CR is better just about everywhere else. The suspension might be just a tad more ... more »

Yeah I've read you can make them rideable. Blaizer wrote in his article that the oil capacity was way too small, I believe.
