I had my eye on (and alarm set) to bid on this jersey which had 4 days left... I checked back and the seller revised it to a Buy it Now and it sold for $85. I am pissed right now! I needed that jersey.
Added reply in a thread Do you keep track of what gear you're in? 8/27/2014 5:58 AM
You can usually (somewhat) memorize what gear you are in for particular sections of a track. This is especially true if you are familiar with the track and your bike. I tend to ride my 2010 YZ450 in 3rd gear almost everywhere on my local track (Hangtown). ... more »
Added reply in a thread 2004 cr85 running problem 8/27/2014 5:52 AM
Paw Paw, just a general question... Would you say a CDI unit is either good or bad? In this case, there is SOME spark, so we can assume a bad stator is more than likely the problem here? I have a project 1993 YZ250 which has no spark. I will be investigating ... more »

That thing's a beauty! Did they charge the regular price to get that made for you? I need one for my KX125. And I agree with the matching the fender paint to the lower section of the seat. Good call.

How did the Wiseco crankshaft end up for ya? I had two go out in a 2003 RM125. I learned the hard way.

Good to know about the no "evo" on the decals. Thanks for the info on that.

How did you convince Frank to leave the "evo" off of the shroud decals?

Good stuff man. Yes Evo-mx is awesome. And I too would have never known about them if it wasn't for VitalMX threads.

Wow I feel like an ass but the day ended up pretty awesome! I couldn't believe it but my girlfriend was "the sniper"! She caved in and told me after I wouldn't stop "crying" about my loss today. Wow, she is the best! All that after I emailed the seller

Great info guys. And thanks for your sympathy. I WAS pretty upset about it. I would be pissed about the Showa A kit too! I will look into the Esnipe thing for sure! And I did contact the seller to ask what happened and asked him to give the buyer my ... more »

They are Pro Tapers, same bend since 2008, which was slightly taller than the 2006/2007. I believe they are 92mm tall ("C" dimension) and 57mm pullback ("E" dimension) just a guess off of protapers website. I run the windham bend on everything which ... more »

Good tip Ed. Yes, I thought of that after the fact and have heard of people doing that. Lesson learned. I hate missing out on something I "need". Thanks for your reply. Ryan

I just realized it looks like the "45500" is actually "4SS00" and the 4SS is the first numbers in the part#. I'm confused on the following two digits though. And I'm still not sure on the Y-1/Y-2 differences. I emailed my friend who works for Yamaha. ... more »

Hey thanks for the info DJFXpro. A lot of helpful stuff there. I thought the y-1/y-2 might designate the A or B bore also. But, I'm pretty sure they bore and plate after the cast (with numbers) is already made. So, I kinda ruled that out. I work at a ... more »

I recently picked up a 1994 yz125 and I am pretty happy with it, besides looking for more power. I bought a used '96 yz125 cylinder off ebay to put on, hopefully to make it run a little stronger. I am trying to ensure the cylinder is in-fact from a 1996...

Wow, what a headache! I have a similar issue on my 2001 CR125. I loaned the bike to a friend and he said it popped and sputtered after the second practice on a race day. He brought it back to me and I can't even get it to start! I haven't gotten too ... more »
