Added reply in a thread Our strategy has to change 9/28/2014 6:51 PM

Like all racing it involves a lot of luck. And that first turn was stupid. Look at AC222, definitely a top 3 performer and didn't finish top 30. Bad luck on this day.

Added reply in a thread RCS Titanium Rear Shock Spring 9/27/2014 8:26 PM

When i bought Ohlins I told the distributor that i wanted to send him the apprpriate Ti shock spring for him to install. He told me they were inconsistent, felt different, and would require different valving to work well, but still not as well as the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why are 2 stroke motors not rubber mounted? 9/24/2014 6:45 PM

Balance the crank on your 2 stroke and it'll vibrate less than a 4 stroke. It sure helped my ktm.

I've always really liked #33 and i hope he does well.

Added reply in a thread Why manufacturers will never go back to two strokes 9/8/2014 12:47 PM

I don't know what to make of this graph. At first it appeared to be obvious proof that 4 stroke motorcycles had greatly increased sales but then I realized: 1) Only a small % of that graph even represents offroad competition motorcyles. Most is probably ... more »

4 strokes always start and run their best, right before they blow up.

The stock pads last 5x longer than anything aftermarket. The stock pipe is made of tinfoil.

BB4 would be such a good fit (riding style) in the GPs. I'd like to see him go over to Europe.

Added reply in a thread MTB Training for the Pros - Brayton's Ride in Park City 8/25/2014 12:02 PM

That terrain looks like a LOT more fun than what we have around here. It would also allow me to cover a lot more ground more quickly which would be a plus. The good trails in Austin for the most part are just solid 1"-8" loose rocks and it makes the ... more »

Added reply in a thread NUETECH TUBELESS TIRE CORE 8/5/2014 6:24 PM

They are easy to mount and tire swaps become a breeze. They are lighter and perform better. They last forever. The warranty service is great. Generally you need to add some Tire Slime and they will never lose air and you will never get a flat again.

Added reply in a thread Affordibility of Riding 8/5/2014 11:53 AM

When your a kid $500 a month is a lot of money, but in adulthood once you get a decent career going, it's equivalent to going out eating and having drinks with your lady like 3x. Not really a big deal. Oh also, I only ride about 3x per week but I only ... more »

Added reply in a thread Roger Decoster-Team USA 7/31/2014 1:06 PM

It's not like Honda just happens to have a perfectly dialed in 250F for ET3 to just hop on and go fast on. As fast as Eli is, not racing currenty on a 250F makes him a less than ideal choice for that class. Guys spend all year dialing in those bikes ... more »

Added reply in a thread Excellent discussion point put forward by Matthes, throw it out there for opinions/thoughts 7/31/2014 12:39 PM

I only watch the races on TV but I have noticed that when Roczen was winning his mechanic was all high fiving him etc...when he came off and I don't recall seeing Decoster congradulate him, although it seems like DeCoster did the first race or two. Maybe ... more »

Added reply in a thread So I guess the steel frame is better? 7/31/2014 8:48 AM

I have an Acerbis foam seat on my Ohlins suspended KTM as that seat is the only one that holds up for me. That seat is quite rock hard. The bike however still feels nice and plush while riding and i never even notice the seat. Installing that seat made ... more »

Added reply in a thread My bad Washougal story 7/30/2014 11:51 AM

Moto people as a whole are good folks. But in any large group there are going to be scumbags. Plus you have a certain amount of agressiveness, youthfulness, and inexperience in life that is just common to the track because it's mostly a young man's sport. ... more »

32:1 with Amsoil Dominator. Bottom ends last the lifetime of the bike. The catch is that running the Lectron carb, the bike uses way less fuel, therefore it's getting way less oil too.
