Added reply in a thread Time for forced induction 2/27/2015 6:02 PM

Turbos are a good idea for 4 stroke sleds because they already are quite heavy and it doesn't matter much, but mainly because forced induction can negate altitude induced power loss. And that's a big deal.

Which Americans? Like 6 guys in their moms' basement out of 320 million people in the country? Your generalizations are as ignorant as the idiots' that tried to generalize the GP series as having less capable riders. Both are stupid things to say. And ... more »

You are parked in front of our old street bike meeting spot before we'd head out to drag knees. Fond memories of that place.

You don't speak for all Americans that's for sure. Quite frankly you sound ignorant as fuck.

Going to add my Lectron carb and Tubless to my list. Great stuff for sure.

The obvious solution that would provide cheap racing, reliablility, and reduced noice would be modern large displacement 2 strokes with very long restrictive mufflers on them. This would solve a great deal of issues in the market at this time. Only an ... more »

Mine looks flat out turdy compared to yours. How much weight did you get off the thing? Tell me about the cf head start? I wonder if that will alter the handling? Engine work looks beautiful. Is this builder known for his work? You need to balance the ... more »

Even though Suzuki claimed the frame was the same on the 13s, one of the magazines pulled a 12 and a 13 down next to each other and found where Suzuki had added an extra weld or maybe a piece of bracing to the 13s. Apparently that is what screwed up ... more »

OT: For those of you that don't know, when you have REAL pain, pain pills have absolutely no effect on your sobriety. NONE. The pain pills just take your pain from real sharp to a bit dull to allow you to function. Your mind is completely sharp (finally) ... more »

Is Vital a dating website now? 43 Year old WMB. Slight limp... j/k Bronwyn is a good looking gal and looks to be a hell of a lot of fun to hang with even if she has awful taste in beer.

I've been begging for this bike for years. No fancy DI needed, just a carbed modern technology big bore KTM based on the 250SX. I did bore and stroke my own 250SX and got it up to 314cc but I think a factory built big bore is just a better solution. ... more »

I've been on new KTMs since July 2007 and have an affection for them, but get real about Kroc, he looks GREAT on the Suzuki. Truthfully the KTMs didn't really start working as well as the Jap bikes until about 2009-10 or so. So there was a lot of catching ... more »

You can't even get an MX Tech revalve and spring for $500 on a stock shock. You can't go thru life concerning yourself with someone else's profit margin, just whether or not you got what you needed at a fair value. And who else can sell you a shock for ... more »

It's mind blowing to me that the 20mm offset worked for you as it was so, errr European feeling to me. You say it turned well, and I know that's what we have been led to believe it should do, for me it just pushed and didn't turn at all. I suspect that ... more »

I raced a handful of MX races years ago and did some roadracing as well. I'm a risk taker by nature but I also like value and racing equals a lot of money and very little time actually participating. It also multiplies the danger factor 5 fold. At this ... more »
