Also went to the Yamaha Demo Day at Dixon, CA yesterday. Both of the Yamaha employees there were cool, friendly and answered all questions. I rode the YZ450f, YZ250f, YZ250fx, and YZ250 two smoker. Agree with JM485, my favorite bike by far was the YZ250fx. ... more »

Rode a buddies '13 CRF450R and loved it. Feels so light and nimble compared to my Yamaha YZ450f. Turns great. Down on power, but so easy to ride it would be plenty for me. He's selling for 5K. Has Factory Connections suspension already set up for my ... more »

I'm gonna watch this post too. A guy in our riding club recently had problems with his relatively new Gaerne boots. Loves the feel of the boots, but they are coming apart too. His was most pissed about the customer service...or lack there of. When he ... more »

Thanks, that's what I figured. That same article (dated 2-12-14) by John Basher says that Bogle is out.........I know he was hurt, but pretty sure he's healed up (somewhat) and is gonna race Dallas. Strange.

Started new thread Darryn Durham riding East 250 SX? 2/12/2014 8:30 PM

MXA online has an article today talking about riders in the East 250 SX class. They list Darryn Durham as one of the favorites and even discuss his recent concussion. How can Durham ride the East 250 class if he's already ridden two West rounds in the ... more »

Don't exactly know their company structure, but I think Mika, DT1Filters and Cheap Tearoffs are all affiliated with one another. I've used many of their products with good success, and so have many friends. I do know that the owners and employees are ... more »

Practicing is one thing and racing is another....agree, for his first race back just get in the main and go from there.

Pretty sure Ricky Ryan's son is racing the minis. Saw him recently at the Dodge National in Nor Cal, and he was very impressive.

Just got a '14 YZ450f. I've got an extra set of wheels for my '12 and I'd like to use them on the new bike. Rear wheel interchanges. However, the front axle on the '14 is larger. Any way to modify the front wheel to work. Larger wheel bearings?

Saw him ride at Mammoth this year. Pretty easy to tell he's somethin' special. Intense every moment on the track. Impressive.

Added reply in a thread Question about my son moving up from a CR85 8/27/2013 2:07 PM

Couldn't help but reply to this post. Most will think I'm crazy for even suggesting a YZ250 two smoker. And if you would have asked me five months ago I'd have said that a 250 two stroke would be the worst bike for a relatively small teenager. But check ... more »

Added reply in a thread '14 YZ450f head 8/10/2013 10:19 AM

Thanks for the info. I've got a GYTR Head on my '13 YZ450 and really like it. If I get a '14 I'd like to put it on there. Rode a '14 this week, but it was on a sand track and the owner had a smooth program in it as well as the stock pipe and gearing....so ... more »

Started new thread '14 YZ450f head 8/8/2013 10:39 PM

Anybody know if a '13 GYTR head will work on a new '14 YZ450f? I looked on the Yamaha site and they have two different part numbers, so I doubt it would work....but just askin'. Thanks.

Any news on Doug's recovery? Hope things are going well.

Good points about keeping it positive. Just wanted to add that although I don't know Doug personally, in the last two years at Mammoth he has taken the time to re-program three Yamahas for me and two buddies, without any charge, and with a big smile ... more »

I was standing about thirty feet (next to a girl I believe was his daughter) from Dr. D's crash at Mammoth...it was brutal. Amazed that he got off with "only" a bunch of broken ribs. The crash was in the second 40A moto. First moto Doug got the holeshot...as ... more »
