I'm not trying to have a "Vs" anything. How many GP riders are there? Aren't only a certain amount of teams and riders "qualified" to race. I didn't watch every single GP this year, but most of them, and I don't recall seeing very many full gates. Do ... more »

We are dealing with a TON more riders over here. GPs have what, 40 maybe 50 guys total between both classes? Some Nationals have probably 100+ guys trying to qualify. How do we distinguish who gets what number? First come first serve? Also, what has ... more »

The REAL ridiculous part is that he even earned points at all riding a REGIONAL championship. What a joke that rule is. As far as them doing Hanny a favor and let him keep the #100? No way. What significant brand has he built? I'm not much into the flat ... more »

You need to try a YZ250 2 smoker...that's more along the lines of the infamous "dat ass" between your legs! Ha

It'd be cool if Kawi had a "B" team kinda like KTM has the FMF supported team. They have quite a bit invested into supporting a lot of these kids (not just this year but historically) for years as amateurs and a lot of them just get dumped when they ... more »

Milner made that "wide awkward" bike look pretty good at Six Days. If it were me, for the riding he's gonna be doing in Utah, the big stable Yamaha is the bike I pick. Especially one with all the goodies and still a bad ass motor. I'm in on one in a ... more »

Hands down the Yamaha. You can get one of the best forks ever made, or one of the worst. Seems simple to me.

I have a WR that's plated in Idaho, but I did have to put a mirror on it.

Reply to New Yamaha off-road 450 10/6/2015 1:56 PM

The X is probably a "closed course competition" bike and the WR is open to use in more places where they have restrictions like Comie-fornia. I'd also think the X has a lot less of a choked up motor than the WR. The WR is street legal in some states. ... more »

I also used these guys before I started doing it myself. One of the pipes in their gallery is actually one of mine. ha! They are legit. Quick turnaround.

100% possible. Hell, I used to make some "moto babies" feel pretty dumb on my KLX 450, used to put the headlight on just for MX days to rub it in a little more.

Air pressure and heat. You can fix some pretty mangled pipes with a little know-how and patience.

Hope he does well. Anybody think he's gonna get a ride? Canada maybe? Arenacross? Something? Anything? His family has put a lot into getting him this far, it'd be nice to see him get a shot at making a career of it.

This. DD must like "doing it on his own" more than he likes money.

Yep! I was texting my buddy the play by play and I told him "Webb just went for the kill shot, we were 2 feet from the win!" ha

Reply to One Of The Best MXDN's Ever 9/27/2015 5:24 PM

I agree. There was some GREAT racing today, I yelled at my TV more today than all of SX, MX combined. Cool to see it come down to just straight up racing, no mechanicals, no freak accidents, just good tight racing. Good ride by the French, they earned ... more »

New thread 2006 WR 250f Clutch 9/27/2015 5:19 PM

So I think I need a new clutch in one of my trusty steeds. It "runs" fine, but as soon as it gets hot it loses power, so that leads me to believe its the clutch? I pulled it off and took a look and the fibers are pretty brown as well as the steel plates. ... more »

The drunk Irishman was embarrassed about getting lapped in a 20 minute race.

Sounded like Webb was saying something to the effect of "you were all over the place" Cooper was going so much faster he probably had a hard time judging where Edmonds was gonna go. The Irishman only looks like more of a douche causing a scene with someone ... more »
