Added reply in a thread Tips on selling bikes 6/28/2016 2:59 PM

I always trade them in on a new bike and let the dealer handle re-sale. I usually get within $500 to $750 of the lowest price I would have accepted anyway plus I don't have to deal with the CL sale process (e.g., lowball offers, scams, no-shows, etc.). ... more »

One of the things I did not like about the DRD on the YZF was the shape of the silencer. It's the same diameter front to back and blocks access to the rear fender bolts on the right side, forcing you to remove the silencer when you replace the fender. ... more »

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 »

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.

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 »

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.
