Added reply in a thread Which 450, YZ or KX? 2/25/2021 9:02 PM

You have 2 options at the moment in Mancuso or Wild West with bikes in stock, neither of which I'd be overly excited about giving my money to. I guess if I had to choose I would buy the KX from Wild West. At least they've got SOME knowledge and capacity ... more »

Italy sounds awesome!

He also stated 3 out of the 4 employees own their own home. That is not happening on minimum wage. Perhaps just stating the compensation outright would clear the air rather than beating around the bush?

There must be a really good reason you skated right around my questions with coded language like "entry level" and "room for advancement".

What is the salary and what does the benefits package consist of?

Added reply in a thread KTM Kill Switch Help 2/5/2021 7:31 AM

It's pretty much a worthless, aftermarket, snake oil map switch with a kill switch integrated into it.

Could the bowl or floats be deformed in some way? Perhaps it's getting stuck on something and won't "float"?

He's asking about specific, one-off factory parts. These "factory ecu" and "torque your sprocket bolts" inside jokes are fucking worn out and annoying. The guy joined this forum last month, you think he gets 3 year old inside jokes?

Added reply in a thread Bud Racing crank? 1/14/2021 10:25 PM

If you choose to rebuild the crank, I'd highly recommend Kerry Rea @ Rea Machine in Pasadena. $50 and you might even be able to wait on it if you bring him all the parts. Heck, I bet John Mitchell, Rat Racing or EBR could do it as well. There's no need ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2021 YZ85 12/11/2020 10:23 AM

There is about $200 in markup between MSRP and dealer invoice on the 85. With $400 in freight, they're making about another $100. So, not much, but $6300 OTD is preposterous at best.

Added reply in a thread Question about buying a brand new bikes 12/2/2020 10:55 AM

This must be something new as they've only offered 0% for 6mo in the past. I've been out of the game for over a year, so it very well could be a new promo. And obviously, that would depend on credit. Not everyone is getting that offer.

Added reply in a thread Question about buying a brand new bikes 12/2/2020 10:50 AM

You will be presented with options from 6mo-6yr depending on your credit, all with varying rates. The 6yr option is extremely rare for an offroad MC, but I have seen it offered.

Added reply in a thread Clutch problems??? 12/1/2020 7:07 AM

x2 on the clutch basket. I'd be willing to bet that the fingers are notched. This image of a worn clutch basket will probably look similar to yours. Over time, the clutch plates wear grooves into the side of the basket fingers. Option 1) remove basket ... more »

How often does yamaha suggest you replace the piston on the 450?
