Added reply in a thread Kick ass two strokes! 1/24/2015 2:21 AM

Well I'm no boiler maker but from an engineering standpoint I'd expect the welds to fail before the metal tears. And the Tyga pipes have significantly more welds on all areas where impacts might take place. And my point was that the pipes won't split ... more »

Well I don't have a graph for my MC18 pipes, but here's one for the MC21 pipes which I'll probably purchase soon (Same engines more or less, similar pipes as well. Same power gains). They did the wiresplice mod to trick the PGM unit into thinking it's

Tyga Performance are going to start producing MX pipes. I talked to Paul and he said they're looking to get started soon. I have Tyga pipes for my NSR250 and they're extremely light, well made and look great.

As much slack as he cops from internet people, he did just win a heat race against two factory Honda backed riders, and a factory back Yamaha rider by gapping them within the first handful of turns. So that deserves some respect. Also, didn't have a ... more »

So why have they never shown the left side of the bike? And $120 off the price! Sheesh, I sort of feel bad for guys who already bought it. At least they got rid of the hideous graphics. Still, I'm unconvinced. It'll cost me $50 for a new 2010 front fender ... more »

Emma McFerran, doing a promo show for Nitro Circus (or Showtime or something). Ended up with a broken wrist and a few other non-serious injuries. Didn't get too banged up all things considered. Apparently it wasn't her bike and she had done the jump ... more »

x2 I'm wondering why they haven't posted many detailed photos. Specifically how the rear fender matches up to the air box and what it looks like on the LHS, mainly around the airbox. If it looks dodgy I'll just do the fender upgrade. Also, I'm guessing ... more »

I was actually gonna DIY this exact thing. But I'll ask the same question I asked myself: What about the airbox? Do the side plates just go over the top? Like others have mentioned, a new front fender/plate does wonders for the look of the last gen CRs. ... more »

Added reply in a thread KTM leading the way again with High School MX 12/11/2014 4:41 PM

Back in 2005 or so they did this at my highschool. A local Kawasaki dealership supplied bikes (I think). Of course attendance was maxed out quickly. Then the next few years they did it you had to bring your own bike. And organise your own transport. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Post a picture of your garage 12/11/2014 4:35 PM

That's where I lived before. I didn't get around to plastering the wall or doing the lights. Did the tiling though. Had my CRMAR and Polaris 400L outside as well. Current garage. Out of sight is my 600RR and the CRM and Polaris I ... more »

Added reply in a thread Works-style pipes for CR125 '03 12/4/2014 7:04 PM

I wasn't going to. I don't think silencers do that much for performance, especially carbon ones. Nor am I fast enough to notice the difference. The bike came with a PC silencer so I'll just repack it and it'll be good to go! Cheers for the links guys, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Which bike would you choose? 12/4/2014 6:58 PM

Probably an NSR500. Arguably the best and most successful bike of all time. As far as dirt bikes go, probably the last CR250 RC rode. That was a nice bike too.

Anyone know where I'd be able to get a works-style pipe for a 2003 CR125? Sort of am after pipes not dissimilar to the ones for my NSR250 MC18:

Yeah, the engine alone would be worth a few thousand (not with that cylinder though).

The air filter was layered with grime; No idea how it even started. But yeah, remove all the graphics except for the shrouds and stuck some spare fender graphics I had lying around. It's a '02 model and besides being hard to start, it's a fun bike.

The only thing wrong with it was a kinked timing chain (due to failed tensioner). Was a budget build though, so I used cheapy parts and stuff around the garage. The Tusk gaskets on the head are crappy so I need to replacement with ... more »

If you can't do any of the suggestions above, just drag along a wife/daughter/friend to sit in the car and mind the bike. Helps to park in a way (once you've unloaded your bike you're gonna ride) so a would-be thief can't simply roll the bike off. If ... more »

So I found out the problem; Nothing wrong with Wiseco (i think, at this point). What happened was, this was the first bike I ever rebuilt. And when I rebuilt it I did two wrong things. Obviously the first thing wasn't replacing the crank but funds were ... more »

If you're on the chunky side of things, lose 10 kg. On my clapped out 98 CR125 I was still neck and neck with my friends new (at the time) YZ125 (2011). He was a bit heavier than I was though.
