Added reply in a thread 4CS vs. Showa TAC 11/15/2017 8:35 PM

I had TBT racing in Az convert my TAC forks to Showa SFF (with all Showa parts) before I even rode them. They work great!!

O.m.g. That's an awesome bike!! I wish I hadn't just bought a kxf. I'd have bought this in a split second.

I'm interested. I have already a fox shock though. Pm a price if interested to let go of the forks separately or email skthom2320 at

Never. I just shift up or down as needed. Pretty sure I am never in 1st on the track. :-)

You are overthinking it. This isn't choosing required reading for elementary schools.

Chaparral is also worth a visit if you are like me and don't have any local shops with any significant inventory. Their costco-sized tire warehouse and department store sized gear section was fun to see. I tried on a shit ton of gear and left with a ... more »

Not sure why this wouldn't fit 15-up as well

Maybe ping needs to apply bran power to the problem, vitards can be such morans sometimes

They don't interest me either and my first bike in 1975 was an xr75. Could really care less. I like the new stuff!

Added reply in a thread ask ping question today 9/16/2017 12:13 AM

This isn't really rocket science. Take a look at how tight the filter cage fits to the air boot with the filter off. I haven't seen a modern bike have any gaps there at all so there is no need to grease it. Especially if you have already oiled the filter ... more »

Added reply in a thread Alternative to asterisks knee braces? 9/5/2017 8:42 AM

I wore asterisks braces for 10 years. About 2 years ago I switched to knee pads (TLD). I just decided that knee braces weren't in my program anymore...

Added reply in a thread Hand/wrist protection (any dentists ride?) 9/5/2017 8:39 AM

I tape my left wrist. I buy big packs of athletic tape and underwrap at the sporting goods stores. For a while my left wrist was my "yellow canary" for good suspension setup. But since I am getting older (dammit) I need to tape pretty much all the time ... more »

Added reply in a thread If anyone has questions for tonight's show. 9/5/2017 8:22 AM

Get rid of internet and social media. Also we don't have near the number of riding areas we did 20 or 30 years ago due to development, sound, and "green" movements. So nothing keefer can do or say is going to roll back those issues.

Added reply in a thread Hand/wrist protection (any dentists ride?) 9/4/2017 9:22 AM

I'm not a dentist, but I have a bad left wrist from years of skateboarding, the TLD wrist brace works great. I tried on an allsports brace but it wasn't any more helpful than my trusty old $35 TLD brace and some athletic tape. YMMV

Started new thread 16-up KX450 / air filters 9/1/2017 9:35 AM

I just purchased a 17 KX450F and immediately picked up a few of my favorite DT1 air filters. I was surprised that these filters don't fit the stock filter cage that well as the "tangs" from the filter cage are too short to reach the holes in the filter. ... more »

I just bought a '17 kx450f here in california. I came off a 13 kx450f, followed by a '15 350sxf. This '17 bike is awesome. If you are a kawi guy, the 16-up bike handles sooooo good. Plus it has a typically great kawi motor. It drops off after 9k, but ... more »

I've been down this road a bunch of times over the years. I'm just a vet dude and these days a practice queen, but I still want to have enough fitness to do three 20 min motos at race speed. Anyway, all of the suggestions have merit. But personally the ... more »
