They did. They did a test with him and Brayton's suspension since they run Showa in Europe. He rode 2 laps, said no bueno, which isn't surprising. First time riding proper supercross suspension is sketchy; unforgiving, doesn't turn well, feel every bump ... more »

Added reply in a thread Buying this 1996 CR250, advice on what to look for? 11/28/2017 12:40 PM

Ask questions about top end/cylinder. If it's been bored out or still on stock bore. It's getting hard to find stock cylinders for those years. Would give a good once over of all linkage parts and swingarm bearings. Outside those things, they are pretty ... more »

Good luck Ben. Hope to see you at A1, Tampa and Daytona.

Torque wrench costs $35. Will save a lot of headaches.

Met him with my dad at bike week in 1999 and 2000. Talked with my dad about TT500s and SRX600s like he knew him beforehand for over 90 minutes. Still have a white bros pipe and personally tuned/jetted carb on my street-tracker he sold us many years ago. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Confused about 2-stroke vs 4-stroke 11/3/2017 11:06 AM

250 2-strokes already push 48hp stock, you can easily turn 52+ with just a mild port job, reeds and a pipe. 4 stroke 250Fs are pushing about 40hp stock; cam, pipe and ecu map can make 45, serious motor work with a port or valve job will get you to almost ... more »

Added reply in a thread ML, pit bits on stankdogs 250sx? Ronnies CR250? 10/23/2017 12:52 PM

Those non-RC valve motors from 94+ were VERY good. Torquey, hard initial hit with good midrange. The motor was never an issue with those bikes, it was the massive overabundance of aluminum and welding they had to do to keep them together. The 97s were ... more »

It's a good mixup. But, how are those tracks at the triple crown going to hold up? Need to do the math, but these tracks we're suffering enough last year with the timed mains, and now you're increasing the total race time? Not sure how that will work. ... more »

Harder. You have to work to make a 125 go fast. Especially if you ride in a lot of soft conditions. With that said, you can believe how much easier it is to skip over bumps, and it teaches you how to corner by using momentum and correct line choice, ... more »

More midrange, hits harder in the middle, carries into the overrev. Little easier to ride (emphasis compared to a 125, not a 250F), and new motors lighter and a little smoother. Some actually prefer the 125, since they seem a little more traditional ... more »

My dad has an older grey market ATwin, and he's wanting to get a new one. I've seen 2 people ride the new ATwin like it's a dirt bike, even in deep sand. They are not as flashy or powerful as 1190R, but seem to get the job done and as usual, has that ... more »

Red Bull paying riders to come, so at least at the end it's no out of pocket for them. And, it's a fun race. Be fun to watch.

Added reply in a thread HRC Honda releases statement on Cole Seely's Shock Failure at MXoN 10/4/2017 1:01 PM

I don't think a factory effort is willing to put a "hack fix" when a rider's safety is at hand. Not to mention, the shock is manufactured by KYB, they put it on, not make the parts. Also remember, they had less than about an hour to turn it around. That's ... more »

Like the "by the way, the other company shock didn't fail" portion of the release. Subtle jab at KYB?

I will go for the party, that's for sure. Just a shame we (possibly) again may not have our top riders for the race. For those small percentage of us that do follow the GPs, it will be a great experience. May even ride the big bike just to make a real ... more »
