Added reply in a thread Do you have more 2 stroke or 4 stroke memories? 6/17/2017 5:22 AM

I didn't have too many bikes growing up but my cousins 93 Polaris Trailboss 350 is one of my favourites in my youth. I know it's a quad bike but when it came to riding a PW80 or a 350L, the quad bike was way more fun. So all up... definitely 2 stroke ... more »

Added reply in a thread Honda Twostroke Parts 4/19/2017 1:54 AM

That's only partly true. Honda will reproduce certain parts given enough demand. There's no way to determine how many parts to manufacture or how long a bike's "life" will be. For example, certain bikes might be more likely to be scrapped (i.e. farm ... more »

Added reply in a thread Anyone try these 3/24/2017 5:05 AM

Wow, that's a neat idea. I'm keen to get a set given the fork tubes (gold parts) on the CR250 budget bike I got are completely knackered. I was going to use this carbon wrap but I hate the adhesive. I looked around and you can get 50mm heat shrink wrap ... more »

Sounds like this dude needs to get his priorities in order. No one forced him to do anything... a local track having financial issues I can understand, but a track which is routinely used for professional racing? Something isn't adding up here.

Added reply in a thread Rebuild 12/27/2016 4:24 AM

Wouldn't it be easier / cheaper to just part out the bike and buy another one? Or just buy a second-hand head or something like that. And it seems like there may be some other components inside the head you maybe could reuse? For the price of that engine, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Methods to sale... 12/6/2016 3:51 AM

Gumtree (Australia's Craigslist... we have Craigslist but no one uses it) is the cheapest way to sell anything. Just set your price and wait. Putting up with the poor offers is annoying but eventually you'll get a good bite. I sold a 1999 CRM250 for ... more »

Added reply in a thread KTM publicly testing FI Two Stroke 12/4/2016 11:38 PM

I have no idea why people whinge about complexity or reliability. Plenty of boat motors, snowmobiles and even older GP bikes had some form of fuel injection without issue. The benefits might be slightly more weight but I would wager that would be offset ... more »

Depends where the pick up is for the oil pump. I have heard of both a CRF450 and DRZ400 blowing the bottom ends apart due to extended wheelies. You can get oil pick up relocation kits specifically for stunt bikes.

Garage has a few different bikes now, but the layout is the same

All told, I can get at least 6 bikes in and still get access to the bench. If I had to store them for a cold winter I could but in Queensland, Australia, I just leave my daily ... more »

Just wondering if anyone has a higher quality version of this photo:

Started new thread Best all-rounder? (MX, Enduro, etc) 10/30/2016 3:37 AM

So I have an 03 CR125 and it's a nice bike but is woeful on the trails and is a little difficult to ride on '4-stroke tracks'. Also, most (all) tracks near to me aren't groomed very often so traction is hard to come by and the poor 125's suspension takes ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2015 crf450r Honda frame "goodwill" :( 10/13/2016 2:50 AM

Well you can probably get the bike back if you sign a waiver so you can't sue them if the bike has other issues. Like others have said, getting someone to grind back the weld and fix it was the cheapest solution. But $700 for a fitted new frame is pretty ... more »

Started new thread CR125 Reed Valve Baffle 8/14/2016 2:29 AM

So I'm doing some fairly extensive modifications to my CR125 (2003) including the Air Striker carb and 03 KX125 pipe (already bought and prepped up). Upon taking the engine apart to rebuild, I noticed there is a baffle inside the intake (white plastic)

Added reply in a thread Can anyone ID these parts? 8/5/2016 8:33 PM

I'm guessing the shock is a 1994 model too. Really want to just get the year/model on the electrics as it would be a shame to throw it away.

Started new thread Can anyone ID these parts? 8/5/2016 8:31 PM

So trying to clean out some parts so I can make space. Might as well sell them or give them away rather then throw 'em away. I got these with a 98 CR125 I bought some years ago. Any help is appreciated! If you want anything let me know too, good deals

Keen to see what the 250R is like next year. a 450 is too powerful for my liking, so hopefully they carry through the changes to the 250R. I wish they would update the 450X though. I don't think it even has fuel injection yet...

Added reply in a thread Brand new or stick with used? 7/26/2016 4:44 AM

There's nothing wrong with a used bike if you go through it and check everything. Obviously the engine is the a big one but for a 2 stroke, for example, you'd be crazy to not just rebuild it right off the bat.

TP was probably fed up with X Games kind of throwing FMX to the wayside, a sport which he pretty much helped grow. I was disappointed by some of the judging though. The commentators kept throwing around numbers for difficulty and I wasn't sure if I should ... more »
