Cool product. I'll be needing one in a couple of more years.
Added reply in a thread Would you really " Boycott " the races? 12/18/2014 12:37 PM
That may be true. But the sport needs those average sports spectators to attend also to be profitable. So sure, the core fans might attend anyways. But we need more than those people.

I'll watch, but not attend. So there! It's not the hardcore moto guys you have to worry about skipping. It's the majority of the audience that has a favorite athlete, but doesn't really ride themselves. Just like guys that bought tickets to see Schmu, ... more »

The punishment is entirely too harsh for what amounts to a clerical error by the Stewart group. And the result is that the sport is losing the most talented and entertaining SX rider we have ever seen. I'm not a Stewart nuthanger, and given his consistentcy ... more »

These bikes are amazing for what they bring to the table. Weight, power, performance. I suppose some fag will mostly concern themselves with the inconsequential aesthetics of the thing, but not the core moto guys around here right....

It's going to be a great season. The only thing we know for certain is that there will be some great battles. AC222 ain't going to just roll over, that dude is no joke.

Those Euro tracks are TOUGH. They don't even look fun to ride. Balls to the wall doesn't work most of the time. My money is on RV, but just barely.
Added reply in a thread Just to show how inflated MX prices are.... 11/21/2014 8:02 PM
Cost to operate the race teams. It's that simple. Technically none of these bikes cost more than a couple of grand to manufacturer, but it's the other costs that makes the difference.

No. That was in the 1st trucks which quit being built in 2012. The new V6 has more hp than the old V8, but less torque. BTW, real world mpg numbers from the Colorado forums are well over 21 mpg, several 4x4s are averaging 22-24mpg which in real life ... more »

I fit 2 dirt bikes in the back of my 2009 short bed Canyon. It's tight but it works fine. Of course the tailgate is down with a bungee net strung across the back. This truck has 141K miles btw and not one single failure, not even a brake job. It's still ... more »
Added reply in a thread KTM Breather Hose Mod....How much air is meant to come out? 11/7/2014 7:43 PM
When you have cylinder pressure leaking past your rings and valves they end up in your crankcase which is not where they are supposed to be. Your buddies YZ just has a lot more engine wear than your engine. Yours sounds about right.
Added reply in a thread Powder coated my wheel. What do you think? 11/6/2014 3:12 PM
Heating aluminum to those temps softens it. I have pictures of the folded GSXR wheel somewhere around here to prove it. That was a shitty day for me.

If they built/ sold one with a build 350-450cc 2 stroke engine, I'd be a buyer.
Added reply in a thread 2 stroke beast's exhaust set-up is catching on... 11/4/2014 2:15 PM
If you need to flow a certain amount of exhaust flow to make power, while still controlling decibals and emissions, 2 mufflers gives you an advantage. You can build it restrictive (for less noise) but have 2x the exits to increase flow. even more usefull ... more »
Added reply in a thread Alessi '03 Claimed Super Mini FOUND!!! 11/2/2014 8:53 PM
You have a bike that is worth exactly what a 12 year old modified 80 is worth, no more. Ideally you would give the Alessi or Varner group the opportunity to buy it for its real worth.

Move the cylinder down to move powerband lower, and raise the cylinder to move the powerband higher. Set Power valve, squish and compression correctly based on your new locations. The ideal port shape for good air flow is mostly it regardless of where ... more »

Added reply in a thread Lessons Learned Trying To Watch MEC And Not Have Satellite TV 10/20/2014 12:51 PM
I suffered for years. Direct TV thru Costco solved all of my moto watching problems. I'm cheap and don't watch tv otherwise so it was hard but it turns out it was so worth it.
Added reply in a thread Is it 250cc 2 stroke too much for 15 years old kid 10/12/2014 7:28 PM
Low power bikes are usually more dangerous cause you have to ring their necks so long and hard to clear stuff even if you are sideways or whatever.
