Hey guys , I'm playing around with my handle bar adjustments on my 16' Kawi 450. I moved the bars forward into the forward hole in the triple clamp ( closer to the front number plate ) but turned the mounts around to bring the bars back a bit. I want ... more »
Added reply in a thread 2018 RM 250??? 10/24/2016 5:32 PM
The rumor about Suzuki bringing back a 2018 RM125 and 250 are more than just a rumor now. In fact I would say it a very high probability now. No joke.

Ryan , I see that the Fuzion bar also comes in a Carmichael bend as well....is that the exact bend of the 971's / 922 RC bend in the Renthal's?

Edit : I will probably switch back up to a Renthal Twinwall bar here soon. The regular bars are fine for right now.

I used pro taper bars for many years , but after I came back to riding I didn't like the flex from them. I ran the 971 and 922 bends on my 12' Kawi and liked them a lot but didn't really notice any difference between them and my standard 7/8" 971's from ... more »

Don't be an asshole. I said " don't go overboard " because it was mentioned that that the sand only made it to the slide. It wasn't until " after " he mentioned it made it past the reeds is when i said yard the tranny. You aren't the only one here that ... more »

Pressure washing won't get the sand in the cylinder. It got sucked in while running. Best to yard the tranny , split the cases and flush everything. I'd almost replace the crank and bearings to be safe. God damn sand can ruin everthing. Good luck with ... more »

A quick review so far on the suspension. I took it back to FC a few weeks ago and the changed out the old fc valves for the newer ones. Worked way better then what it was. With the updated valving they changed oil levels and air pressure and they feel ... more »

I wouldn't go that far. Those two 2 strokes are pretty resilient and can hold up to a lot of abuse. Btw , might wanna pull the head off and check things out as well if you see anything near the reeds.

Dear god , yes! Hopefully not much if any got past the slide. But yes , I would tear that carb down and check every inch of it before you re-install and run it. I'd double check the reeds and so forth too. A couple grains of sand can play havoc on the ... more »

Well not really. James SR is a big black dude , and Tony is a little white dude. Wasn't sure if anyone here was aware of that...and I have some insider knowledge on this subject.

No worries Billy , thanks! I think I found my issue anyways! I had the clamps pointing forward , while mounted in the forward hole....they couldn't possibly go forward any more than I had them. Which is not what I wanted , so I left them in the forward ... more »

Steven was one of my favorite GP riders to watch. He had kind of a wild style to him and really let it hang out during his riding. Exciting racer to watch and he had some serious speed. Glad to hear he made it back to a some what normal life again. Here ... more »

No luck with any of those Billy. No bar riser sets for 7/8" bars that i can find. Might end up having to go with the 1-18" bars.

You said that pretty well Shane. This is the first time I think I've ever seen someone actually post that they think Roczen's bike is close to stock. It's a full on factory effort , as was James' bike. The suspension , motor and electronics alone are ... more »

I hope he has something lined out , or at least 90% lined out. I kinda get where the OP is saying though. I've always been a big fan of Malcolm ( more than James actually ) and I think the dude has some untapped potential. He has some serious raw speed ... more »
