Reply to What makes "A-Kit" suspension so good? 8/22/2016 5:51 PM

I'm well aware of how Kawis handle compared to that genration of Hondas, but I'm confused if you think the other bike I rode was a Kawasaki? Either way, I've ridden other CR250s of the same generation and none held a candle (to my preferences at least) ... more »

My bike is a 2010 CRF450 with Enzo revalved/resprung suspension. I was very happy with it, still felt plush and had great bottoming resistance. The bike with A kit was a 2007 CR250 2 stroke. The biggest difference I could feel was through heavy chop ... more »

Reply to Sell me on the idea of a SX 250 class as a Spectator? 8/21/2016 7:06 AM

It's more exciting with a whole different class to win. Would you rather watch Zach Osborne make a pass for 12th in the combined race, where really you'd just be watching the leaders, or watch him battle tooth and nail, leaving it all out there for a ... more »

All I know is, the one time I got to ride on Pro Circuit A-kit, it was unbelievable. I thought my Enzo was good, but I could barely feel any if the bumps on the very rough track. It almost felt too soft at first, but I couldn't get it to bottom either. ... more »

Reply to Vital MX Forum QNA: Christophe Pourcel 8/17/2016 6:36 PM

Not a question, but I remember seeing you cruise around in practice at the St. Louis SX one year on the 250, rolling around, barely stringing a section together, then you finally put on a heater, and hit this 90 degree right hand corner after a triple ... more »

I've been semi retired for a couple years now, and there was a T-shirt up for grabs the whole time? I feel robbed.

Reply to Outdoors vs Indoors attendance 8/15/2016 2:55 PM

Haven't gone to SX in about 4 years, but have gone to the Ironman National the past 2 years and the Glen Helen GP, and would have gone to Red Bud too if I were free those weekends. I can watch SX live in my living room, and even though you can't see ... more »

Reply to A lot of Vital folks are going to hate this post 8/15/2016 2:51 PM

Not ripping the track won't make it smooth, just a different kind of rough. I've found with working on my own track that sections I leave grass on get rougher, because the tires are fighting against clumps/roots rather than just loam. There's still ruts ... more »

Reply to What do you think of a 22-race Supercross season? 8/15/2016 2:41 PM

I think it would kill the sport. Like everyone else said, local tracks would become more like SX, driving injuries higher, and more people quitting and riding in the woods instead

Reply to Will Tomac have a chance in charolette or Glen Helen ? 8/14/2016 8:36 PM

The GP guys have had what, 4 years at Glen Helen now? They should be starting to catch on. That being said, with how Tomac had been riding, I wouldn't guarantee him a win.

Reply to How long do you keep your air filters? 8/14/2016 11:16 AM

If it looks fine, it's probably fine. As long as it comes clean and the seams stay together, they don't expire like milk.

Reply to Gnarliest Downhill 8/13/2016 3:50 PM

There's gnarlier ones mentioned in here, but the downhill of Godzilla at the Ironman National is pretty steep considering it's a big landing ramp. In 2014 Ken Roczen kept trying to clear it in the mud, barely clipping the edge of the landing, then bounced ... more »

So what happened? Did someone crash, are they ok? Lightning?

Reply to Unadilla Bench Racing - The Motos 8/13/2016 12:57 PM

What the hell happened?

Is there a stream besides the NBC sports app? My parents have NBC sports but finding out any account info from them is impossible to log in on the app.

Reply to Unadilla Bench Racing - The Motos 8/13/2016 11:08 AM

My dogs got scared when I started yelling "show the fucking race!!!!" At the tv. I don't understand the point of showing the leader cruise around for half a lap and then after when there is a frantic battle for 2nd.

Reply to Unadilla Bench Racing - The Motos 8/13/2016 10:24 AM

Are they doing a full 30+2 again? Does the tv slot have enough time?

Reply to 2009 crf450r 8/12/2016 8:19 AM

With the linkage and stiffer fork springs, I absolutely loved my 2010. You can remedy the clutch fade by over filling the clutch side on oil a bit to keep it cooler.

I'm a fan of this. Osborne has GP experience
