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 »

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 »

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 »

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.

A little more time spent not putting people in front of bullets and IUDs for entirely worthless reasons and a little less time worrying about if they drink a Coke or not would be appreciated.

If the 2 strokes begin to sominate the leader board, instead of letting it go until the class is completely dominated by 2 strokes which is a mistake we have already made with 4 strokes, just apply a peak hp limit on the 2 strokes. Maybe require stock ... more »

Does it feel any different than the old one at all? Heck you didn't even get the clamp offset change because you grabbed the clamps, forks, wheels (different size axle so you had to grab it all) so I don't know if any parts are different at all from ... more »

On the crash, I had a friend recently that had 2 similar crashes where the nose of his KX450 just dove on take off. It turned out it was his transmission popping out of gear only at this specific time. Didn't happen any other times. Just a possibility ... more »

Does it run or handle any different than your old ('12?) one? Sure looks nice.

Added reply in a thread Traction Control - Kawasaki 7/2/2014 9:01 AM
It'll work fine in whoops. Why wouldn't it? Riders don't count on massive uncontrolled wheelspin to navigate thru a whoop section. Trimming back hp by 5-10% on a 60 hp dirt bike, is still enough power to spin a free wheeling rear tire believe it or not. ... more »

It appears to me that the Kawasaki or the Suzuki (but with a bit of oversteer) works best on Supercross tracks but that the chromoly frame has some obvious advantages outdoors. Frankly, that same frame design dominates Europe and is now dominating the ... more »

If you are willing to chop off your weenie and stretch your balls around your ears, I'm okay with allowing you to go grab a few $2 plastic trophies for your mom's mantle. Seriously where is the harm? It's all just for fun anyways. We aren't talking million ... more »

If it's your passion and you can afford it, why not? Frankly if you look at maintenance costs, what you resale the old one for etc, and if you have a deal where you buy the new one right, Only losing $3K isn't out of the question. And that's just not ... more »

From a parts perspective it's the complete package. And the price was amazing as well. Of course I'm curious how it actually operates on an MX track when so many critical components have been altered. Can't wait to hear a ride report.
