Yesterday i saw a guy at the trail head on a YZ250 kicking and kicking for probably 15 minutes before his bike finally started. Mine had life within a split second of me pressing the button. Not saying one is better than the other, but they both have ... more »

Added reply in a thread I messed up and need advice!! 11/20/2020 10:40 AM

Went with a leftover WR450F when i got back into riding in early 2017. Kept it less than a season. Too much power and wore me out way to fast. Sold it for a huge loss, but was able to get a current model year 250F for about the same price i sold my 450 ... more »

Heres my logic for all styles of riding on my dirt bike: Is it flat? No, run it. Yes, air it up to something around mid teens In trials, Is it flat? No, run it. Yes, air it up to 4-6ish.

Don't see a huge difference on the dirt bike majority ... more »

I stopped by earlier today on the way home from riding. By far better than any other cycle gear i've been into and most dealerships. Great selection on Alpinestar boots in the store for MX, didn't see Enduro models but they had about every model MX boot,

Good selection on other brands on only their in-house? Last time i went to one years ago in north houston, it was 95% their house brand.

Added reply in a thread lightest trail bike with 21"/18" wheels? 11/10/2020 3:56 PM

^This. I'm on a Xtrainer. Absolutely love the bike, low seat height, power, weight, etc. The "weak" link is the suspension, but honestly at my weight (~150lbs) it works better out of the box than any other of the 8 or 9 bikes i've owned. Power is very ... more »

My father will typically go for the out of state buys to avoid taxes where it's from the next state over, or he has me find him a deal semi-local to me. Multiple 4 wheelers, UTVs and bikes, zero issue paying cash and getting the MSO. CRF50 he bought

Added reply in a thread KTM 690 Enduro or DRZ400 ? 11/1/2020 11:09 AM

I had the 690 for about 1.5 years and 6k miles all on the street set up as a supermoto. Absolutely excellent bike for what it is. Keeps the dirt bike feel i was after but has way more manageable maintenance intervals. My only "complaint" is the 690 doesn't ... more »

Just got back from there just less than a week ago. Usually try to get out there at least once a year for a week to ride. This trip was 2 days on the dirt bikes, 1 on a rented jeep, and 2 days on trials bike.

Go to dealership and test fit into trailer? I would not pull the trigger without physically putting one in if that's a deal breaker.

I'm on a 2018 Beta Xtrainer and wife is on a 2019 Beta 125 RR-S. I have about 70 hours on my bike and it's been absolutely great. Has it's limitations (which i knew when i bought this model) but it's the best out of the box bike i've ever owned. Biggest ... more »

I'm trying to avoid OEM pipes or DG. Looking for ideally a nice cone style pipe like a PSI or Jemco.

Added reply in a thread 1983 YZ125 Build 8/10/2020 6:20 PM

Wrench report if i recall is to switch to 82 pipes. I've searched for aftermarket and come up empty there as well. Generally search the buzz words every couple days for 82 and 83 pipes on ebay, along browsing the few face book groups i'm apart of every

I thought i had but can't find a record of contact. Don't see it listed on their website, looks mainly later 80s and newer but just shot them a message to check. Thanks for the heads up. Edit: Just heard back, he'd need the bike to be able to build me ... more »

Any one have a non OEM or DG pipe for one of these? Been searching for about 18 months and having worse luck than usual tracking down some harder to find items. Jemco is a no go. I've tried multiple times over the last 6+ months and every time after ... more »

Probably not popular opinion but you can find other hobbies that fill the void. I quit riding in 08 for about 8 years from ages of 18 to 26. Currently 30 In that gap, i built a rock crawler and got into that as a replacement hobby. For me, it's just ... more »
