This. I've negotiated a few CBA's in my time and can tell you the "company" does not have to pony up a bunch of extra cash just because the "employees" decide to organize. My starting point was always the current operating budget; the employees/union ... more »

I still have a hard time deciding if SX is a real sport or if it is just entertainment. Whichever it is, I think it fails at both: As a sport, the only thing we determine each week is who can get the best start. With the track designs, and as talented ... more »

Added reply in a thread Lake Elsinore MX any good? 3/3/2016 4:19 PM

It's in our regular rotation. Yeah it dries out and gets rough but the layout on the main and amateur tracks are fun and it's got a great mini/pitbike track. Definitely worth the $25 and the drive.

Agreed. You're out of luck unless you want to race TWMX (or one of their various other derivatives), old timers or LL/Mammoth qualifiers. It seems like Trans World killed off most of the other series/clubs and it's a shame because that's where we had ... more »

Added reply in a thread Seven Deuce Deuce Segment 2/14/2016 7:17 AM

How about a segment on someone that has busted their ass and got a real education while racing? Or someone that does some meaningful volunteer/community service work in their off time? I'd prefer hearing about that over a story about a "nice guy" who ... more »

Same here. I liked it so much I bought two and lucky I did since I have to rob parts off one to keep the other on the track.

Added reply in a thread 16 kawi plastic 1/28/2016 1:55 PM

It's just as bad for motor parts. I had a crash that caused some major damage and half the bike is backordered. Acerbis and UFO have been saying 6 weeks out for the past 3 months lol. Yes, I've been through this with other new models but 6 months is ... more »

Added reply in a thread Fork revalve 2016 KX450 1/13/2016 12:11 PM

I had mine done by Enzo (along with the shock) and I am extremely happy. I thought the forks worked well before the re-valve but now they are even better. I think they work as good, or possibly better, than the Enzo modified KYB forks on my 2015 YZ450F. ... more »

Added reply in a thread 15 Crf450 cracked frame...repairable? 11/9/2015 11:40 AM

You know it, nothing like dropping $1,000 USD on repairs to a 2 week old bike. To add insult to injury the replacement gear was of the same design as the one that failed so there's a chance it can/will happen again. It's someone else's concern now as ... more »

Added reply in a thread 15 Crf450 cracked frame...repairable? 11/8/2015 6:03 PM

Agreed. Fifth gear on my 2015 CRF450R failed at less than 10 hours and Honda wouldn't return my calls. I was told that this is a known design issue but Honda won't cover repairs.

Added reply in a thread 2016 kawi plastic 11/3/2015 12:08 PM

I bought my new KX in August and it's now November with no non-OEM options. Even Kawasaki is backordered on most parts not to mention 3 times the cost. I often wonder if there is some form of agreement between the manufacturers (e.g. Acerbis, UFO, etc.) ... more »

Added reply in a thread FMF or PC??? 2016 kx450 10/28/2015 10:52 PM

I have two 2016 KX450Fs, one has an FMF 4.1 and the other has a PC T-6 (both stainless/aluminum). Performance and weight are about the same so for me it comes down to other factors, like appearance, sound, durability, etc. They are both well made and ... more »

Long-time 403/404 guy, swapped to X30 front/X40 rear and I really like them. I briefly went back to the 403/404 combo when I bought my new KX450 and didn't like them near as much as the X tires. I was stuck on the MX32/MX52 combo for awhile but they ... more »

Added reply in a thread Enzo or FC setup for 15YZ250F ? 10/8/2015 5:16 PM

Enzo without a doubt. While they have your stuff have them install their fork spring tubes and shock compression adjuster. They also do a shock mod that eliminates the need for a lowering link. Good stuff.

I buy FasterUSA wheel sets with MX32/52 tires mounted and delivered for $1100 all the time. You can then sell your stock wheels on CL for $300 or $400 to get the total cost down close to Tusk or DNA prices. I've broken RAD and Dubya wheels but never ... more »

How long have you been riding it? Are you transitioning from another brand? It took me a few weeks to get used to the first reverse engine Yamaha I owned and even after owning several 10 - 13 and 14/15's I still need a week or so to adjust when transitioning ... more »

Most likely not related to your squeal but just a heads-up to you and other 2015 CRF450 owners. 5th gear on my new (10 hours) 2015 grenaded a couple days ago. Not sure if there is anything you can do on the preventative side but Honda said they have
