Sorry but the name escapes me, Sedona MX maybe? There might be others. Has anyone tried these tires and compared them to their favorite brand of tire? Did you compare weights of these tires to your name brand? Thanks

Needs to order an APT Smartcarb for the next race. Another 8% hp, perfect jetting, a longer powerband w/ notably more overrev, and 20% better mpg might help that smoker out a bit against the big boys.

Ohlins suspension on a KTM. I suspect my APT carb once it finally arrives will be my best modification ever.

I've always thought that showing a sport like MX on a Sunday, on the very day when most of the viewership would be out riding, is just dumb. We are not football fans. MX fans just about all ride themselves.

I sell 18 wheelers and it's the opposite in my industry, at least when Paccar is the manufacturer. All new tires are tested for roundness, runout, and balance and are rated. The highest grade is offered exclusively on brand new equipment. the lower grades ... more »

I have tried quite a few different boots and the Jetts are really my favorite. I bought the non-booty versions and they are not super plush like some of the others but once I begin riding I don't notice at all. Plus they are darn near half the price ... more »

It's all about the distances traveled for the piston and the fuel mixture. In short, because of the way a 2 stroke piston location controls the opening and closing of the ports, a fairly long stroke has to be used to control and separate those functions. ... more »

My 2013 314cc SX on Ohlins is the bees knees to me. A close second would be a 360 from back in the day.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I took the modified bike out for the first time this weekend since getting it back together and it runs really nice. The bike is really good. You really don't have to think about much and the powerband is very long, almost ... more »

I'll quit doing it but I have to admit, I've seen no evidence of damage from doing this. I have always ran BelRay HR1. My old cranks were not rusty so it's either from shutting off the petcock and running it try or something Falicon does to the crank ... more »

Well I provide all parts of course. And the '13 was new and the '08 had been rebuilt just last year so he just pulled them apart and swapped the cranks right over. He didn't even remove the pistons from the connecting rods.
Added reply in a thread Yet another 2 stroke build... 4/5/2013 2:06 PM
Honestly, the '08 when it had the same motor is 95% what the '13 bike is. It kind of sucks because the new one looks so pretty but then I hop on the old one and it turns and stops just as good as the '13 and to top it off it shifted better and absolutely ... more »

LOL I've never asked for a break down but Mack Whiteside is very reasonable. Basically he broke down two engines, coated the new one, and put them both all back together for about $1K total.

Guys, it's nothing too fancy but the bike came out nice so I thought I'd share. I apologize in advance for the poor quality of the photos. It's a 2013 250SX to replace my '08 250SX (for sale btw). I had some trick parts on my '08 so I did a lot of swapping

Added reply in a thread KTM having reliable issues with the tiddler? 4/5/2013 12:06 PM
KTM 144s have a bit of history of blowing up and there are a lot of stories about them. KTM in later years altered the ignition timing and some port stuff where the ring tended to snag. I know a Novice local kid just killed his 150 as well but it was ... more »

It's not worth the small savings in this situation. BUY OEM!!!!!!!
Added reply in a thread OHLINS suspension 4/3/2013 9:07 AM
No way. Those OEM fork guards weight like 1/10 of a single pound and then you have to add back in the weight of the CF ones anyways. People often over predict their weight loss. I on the other hand weigh lots of stuff and usually find that the weight ... more »

LOL. I'm all about functionality over all else. I've been using that cut up old tie down strap for about 6 years now and it makes picking up the bike after a fall or just getting it up on the stand a million times easier. Thanks though!

Here is an updated photo of my '13 250SX, put together this time minus the chain and forward chain guard. Built stroked & bored engine, Ohlins suspension front and rear, SM wheels, yada yada. I can hardly wait to ride it this weekend.
