New thread Rear Shock Play 4/18/2015 3:52 PM

When I lift the bike off the stand, the rear shock sags just a littke and makes that loose noise. I've heard it on other bikes, I'm not aware of a service limit for up and down play. There is only a small amount. Does this indicate the swingarm bearing, ... more »

New thread WTB - Renthal Handlebars 4/13/2015 3:23 PM

Figured I'd check around here to see if anyone had a set of Renthal bars for sale. Finally put a good size bend in the Pro Taper's on my CR.

New thread Tweaked Front End 4/4/2015 8:13 PM

Had a bit of a digger last weekend, realized that my front end is out of alignment. What's the process for methodically straightening this out? Just undo everything and true 'er up?

New thread CR250 Burning Water 3/24/2015 6:42 PM

About 6 months ago I noticed some coolant coming out of the weep hole, so I started topping it off every ride. But that got expensive with engine ice, so I just started filling with distilled water, was told this was perfectly fine, and would actually ... more »

New thread 250 vs 450 on dusty hardpack - GoPro 3/5/2015 6:38 PM

I was going to post this in the video screening section, but no one seems to go there. From a couple weeks back, I'm on the 250, and my buddy is on the 450 with the GoPro. Just thought it was kind of interesting being able to see the different lines ... more »

New thread Pedro Gonzalez 2/8/2015 6:31 PM

Drinking a few beers, watching 90's moto vids. Damn, what a cool time. I didn't really ride in the 90's but I became a moto nut in the 90's so it's near and deer to my heart. Shit like this inspires me more than anything else out there. Watching Pedro's ... more »

New thread SD Track 2/7/2015 11:01 AM

I noticed there's 3 corners (on the virtual map at least) that are like 150* rather than a full 180* into two parallel lanes. While this is kind of a waste of space, do you guys think it's better for racing or worse? Allows the outside to be faster but ... more »

New thread The Real Key to Keeping Your Bike Clean 2/1/2015 8:16 PM

WD40 + Scotchbrite. I've been using this combo since I got my factory fatty about a year ago, but I didn't realize how useful it would be all over the bike. The frame, engine cases, swingarm, you name it. I pressure washed with some soap today, toweled

New thread Supercross Statistics 1/13/2015 5:24 PM

Anyone see the little chart Reedy put on IG? Interesting stuff. Statistically RC was better at SX than some give him credit for (from what I gather around here as the general perception).

New thread From MX to the Woods 1/5/2015 11:13 AM

What kind of jetting changes do you guys make? This was my first time out there, elevation was about 1000'-1500' higher than what I usually ride. Temps were colder but I figured the higher elevation and slower style of riding would offset the colder ... more »

New thread RAD 1/1/2015 10:20 AM

Just found out that my girlfriend is related to the producer of the movie RAD, Hal Needham. I guess he's a super renowned stuntman, IMDB lists him as the highest paid stuntman of all time. I know that's kind of a cult classic movie around here, I still ... more »

New thread TGO 2005, James, Washougal, 4-strokes 12/29/2014 2:29 PM

Saw this clip earlier, thought some of it was relevant. There's also a remark in here about how the 4-strokes changed racing, thought it was interesting. This was almost a decade ago so the bikes have come a long way and I definitely think we have some ... more »

New thread Thrasher Bike 12/28/2014 5:21 PM

Looking to pick up a 2nd bike that I can use with a little less regard for humanity, also thinking street legal would be cool to get a 2 wheel fix when a track or other riding area isn't really in the cards. I've seen a few XR250s and 400s, that's basically ... more »

What was your guys' dream jobs as kids? Any of you make it, or at least come close? Looking at my avatar should be a clue as to what mine was. It's technically still within the realm of possibility, but I think Lloyd Christmas has a better shot of getting

New thread 2004 CR250 Sprocket 12/14/2014 5:05 PM

The shop that's open on Sundays had a front sprocket for a 2005-2007 CR250, but I have an '04. Why are they different parts? Will the '05 work? I put it on and it seems the same. They're basically the same dimensions, I did notice the teeth are a little ... more »
