FXR clutch gear has been the only gear I have used lately that I don't wear a hole in the inner knee in one ride. I really like the fit of Oneil gear, but I put a hole in the pants after a 5 minute warm up on the vet track. I guess I can blame the pod ... more »

All of the bolts I have sheared off happened while riding, or tipping the bike over. The oil filter cover bolts both sheared off when my bike tipped over and hit my stand, barely fell over and didn't even hit the ground before I grabbed it. My skid plate ... more »

Hardware, bolts are butter, literally look like they are filled with plastic when the heads shear off, threads are clearly not aligned on my subframe, threads pop out. Only bolts I ever had a problem on my Yamaha's were the oil drain and filter drain ... more »

Ride within your limits, ride the vet or beginner track, hold your line and stay safe.

^^^posting a 3 page ad in the middle of a thread probably isn't the best marketing decision. Back to the topic tho, I came from a yz450 and currently ride a kx450. I'm 6'4" and the yz and kx are always on my lists since they tend to be the largest feeling ... more »

Got mine in July of 2018, never put it on a tender, have 45 hours on it and didn't ride for almost 9 months after a knee surgery Still starts up right away.

Added reply in a thread the lack of chest protectors 2/24/2020 3:41 PM

they are already forced to wear protective gear. I'm pretty anti government and anti rules but Imo since it is a professional sport ran by a private organization they have the right to mandate the riders wear whatever protective gear they want.

PC and FC both suggested 5.3/6.0 for me at 6'4" 220lbs. Been running it for while, and feels good to me. Lost some of the small comfort but I don't bottom the forks out every jump anymore which is nice.

You would think that would be an easy fix to make to the 2020, maybe we will see it in the 2021.

My last knee injury occurred while wearing braces. Low sided and landed with my knee completely bent and my foot twisted ~90 degrees outwards. The straps from the brace blew apart with the impact, the velcro wasn't strong enough to handle the force and ... more »

Added reply in a thread Gaerne SG12 or Alpinestars Tech-10 ? 2/6/2020 10:34 AM

I currently run a set of SG12's, I had a pair of sg10's prior. The 10's sole seemed to hold up much better but the 12's are more comfortable.

I've Torn my meniscus 2 times, both while wearing different brands of braces. I don't believe braces will help imo, most meniscus injuries are caused by twisting while the knee is bent, 4 velcro straps aren't enough to stop that. I like the idea of asterisks ... more »

Be very careful with the oil filter cover bolts, the inside is soft and the heads can easily break off. My bike tipped over onto a workbench and it sheared off one of the oil filter cover bolt heads. Luckily it was easy to remove. I also somehow sheared ... more »

Temecula is a great spot, I'm about 20 minutes from fox and 30 minutes from cahuilla, a bit more to perris. Never any traffic getting to the tracks on weekends at 9am. Prices arent as cheap as they used to be tho and it is getting pretty popular/crowded ... more »

I have a wide knee so I wear and XL. The pants get worn through at the knee by the hinge. What is weird is that it only happens on the right side, not the left. My old TLD braces would wear through below the hinge on the metal of the brace since there ... more »

Anyone have a solution to braces tearing up pants. Just got some new Oneil gear and the pants had a hole after 3 laps, literally lasted less than 10 minutes. I'm wearing K4 pods v2. My old TLD braces had a velcro/woven cover over the hinge that saved ... more »

I get a kick out of people actually thinking their spine is "out of alignment" and cracking it will somehow put it back in place. If your spine isn't in the proper curvature it is from muscle imbalances, poor posture and improper movement(minus people ... more »
