Added reply in a thread Two Smoke Silencer Weights 8/29/2015 10:29 PM

The easiest way to get a lighter silencer is just to cut the end off. Never read any reports that said silencer length affect performance, only the noise of the bike. With that said, can't see the silencer being the part worth saving weight on. They're ... more »

Added reply in a thread Removing transmission and case bearings; Can it be done? 8/18/2015 7:50 PM

I've reused bearing when changing to another set of cases. I used a blind bearing puller (Rocky Mountain has them) and lightly tapped out the bearings with a slide hammer. I also checked them afterwards for play and made sure they were still usable. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Honda shut out this year. 8/18/2015 7:07 PM

They may not have won the championship but Tomac destroyed Dungey during the first few rounds. That's what Team Honda is capable of, they're just cursed ever since they made the poor decision of letting Carmichael go.

Added reply in a thread Wild idea about changing the scoring system? 8/17/2015 10:53 PM

If you give out points based on people being lapped, what about people who fall over, crash DNF etc? It just leaves the door open for someone to run away with the championship. Also, why does it need to be exciting every second of the race? Motorsport ... more »

Added reply in a thread Pastrana at Straight Rhythm? 8/8/2015 7:38 PM

Pastrana is an old school rider. He raced against Reed/Carmichael/Windham etc so his style is from that era. You never really saw Reed or Carmichael doing scrubs. Pastrana's strong point has always been whoops and rollers as well, not particularly rhythm ... more »

Where did you get the seat cover from? I've got pretty much the same bike colour scheme, except your white plastics are black on my bike (it's a 125, 03 model).

Added reply in a thread 03 CR125 Pipes 8/2/2015 6:34 AM

In that case, there is a full stock system nearby to me. I guess it would be fairly easy to install with a few brackets. Still can't believe a Kawasaki pipe is apparently the best pipe for it; and a stock one at that. I've also read the stock pipe is ... more »

What kind of modding? Cutting the the end partly and bending it to line up with the flange? I don't really want to cut up a brand new pipe but I'll look out for a second hand one.

Does it last? Prone to chipping or gouging, or just do 3-5 layers to prevent that?

Started new thread 03 CR125 Pipes 7/31/2015 2:18 AM

So I'm looking for a works style (raw metal finish, not cone pipe) looking pipe. It pretty much rules out FMF, and Pro Circuit don't seem to be making their works pipes for that model. DEPs look good but I can't find decent deals on shipping and stuff. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Two stroke(s) heard during Washougal broadcast 7/28/2015 12:33 AM

I'm hoping they do this too. A 2 stroke cup would be awesome, but a 125 only class would be the best. Even better if KTM or Yamaha (or even TM and the rest) were allowed to enter bikes as factory teams. It's a shame American motocross is locked into ... more »

Added reply in a thread Craigslist Deal Gone Wrong 7/22/2015 3:21 AM

Not really paranoid, just being careful. I've bought and sold heaps of bikes without a problem. But it pays to be careful. And rednecks and shotguns aren't a problem in Australia (yay for gun laws that work). But you can still steal stuff without a gun. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Craigslist Deal Gone Wrong 7/21/2015 8:41 PM

Always arrange meets at the Police Station and let the guys inside know. I've never brought a bike to someone (always sold the bike from my house) but one time someone did ask, and I said we'd meet at the local Police Station and I never heard from them ... more »

Added reply in a thread Best way to renew the gold part on forks? 7/20/2015 7:32 AM

Hmm, they look pretty gold to me. And I thought they were Showa? Nonetheless, whatever the colour is I'm just wanting to make them tidy. on my 98 CR125 I remember the forks looked quite secondhand and I think I just gave them a lot of elbow grease with ... more »

Started new thread Best way to renew the gold part on forks? 7/20/2015 1:13 AM

I got a 2003 CR125 a while back and want to clean up the gold part (upper bit). Any tips? I was gonna sand it lightly with 1200 grit sand paper and then polish it with mothers polish. What would you do?

Added reply in a thread If you could live one riders career.. Who? 7/16/2015 1:15 AM

Valentino Rossi. If it's only MX, probably Pastrana. Had a very cool life, done many things. If it was just the career, and not the life as well, probably... RC. Being that good at something would be incredible.

Added reply in a thread EDIT: Time to leave behind trails and begin riding track 6/29/2015 3:57 AM

Dude, I used to drive minimum 1.5 hours to ride. Usually it would be 3 hours to my favourite places. That's a 6 hour drive for a day trip. Getting up a 4am, leaving at 5am, riding from 8am til 2pm and be back home before dark. No one ever said motocross ... more »

Added reply in a thread EDIT: Time to leave behind trails and begin riding track 6/28/2015 11:52 PM

TBH, looks like you're annoyed you can't ride anywhere for free. Don't you guys have registration for forestry trails? or Fire trails? MX parks with trails? Holy crap, you live in California and make it out like there is no where to ride. Go make some ... more »

Added reply in a thread This guy really wants to buy a bike.. 6/27/2015 6:16 AM

I had a similar situation. The guy low-balled me initially and I set GTFO. Then he agreed on the price I set, but asked if I will deliver it. Then I said sure, but it will cost you. So he offers me an extra $300 to drive it to him, roughly 2 hours away. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Check out this CR125... 6/25/2015 2:12 AM

Great bike. The thing I don't get on these builds, is obviously it wasn't a budget build. So why didn't they put $50 extra in and get black side plates?
