Reply to White plastic renew 7/7/2019 8:32 PM

Purple power and mr clean magic erasers make white plastics look literally brand new. Had an all white yzf a while ago and tore all the plastics off and scrubbed them for a bit. Looked like new. The graphics also became white again.

Reply to Best fan kit for 350sxf? 7/6/2019 4:12 PM

Its more for preventive measures. Also i can then ride more technical trails and be able to use the clutch without worrying about it boiling over. KTM does make it a fan kit but its more expensive over other brands ive seen just because its got KTM on ... more »

New thread Best fan kit for 350sxf? 7/6/2019 1:48 PM

I plan on getting some KTM&HUSKY rad guards with the bottom brace next week sometime and want to order a fan kit as well. I use my 350sxf as a woods bike and it gets quiet hot. Its still on stock pink coolant (which i am switching to engine ice), ... more »

New thread SSS Internal swapping 4CS forks? 6/29/2019 7:17 PM

Wondering who has done this and what results you got? My suspension guy has some SSS internals from a 06 YZ250 and I asked him about it since I saw someone on here do it to their WP forks. He said it could work but it would be difficult as he has only ... more »

Reply to 06 YZ250 crankshaft bearing replacement 6/29/2019 2:50 PM

Order all oem parts and buy the correct tools and follow some online tutorial videos like from RMATV and you will be set. Also freeze the new bearings and get yourself a handheld gas torch to heat the cases.

Reply to Time Sert for 2015 Ktm 125 sx - Question/help 6/29/2019 11:55 AM

Fix it correctly. Time serts are only good on small things like a stripped fork guard hole or something. Replace the case and be done with it.

New thread ISO used seat/oversized tank for 16’ 350sxf 6/28/2019 6:23 PM

Looking for either of these items. No stock seats. Soft seat or softer then stock with gripper cover preferred! Also oversized tank. No quickfill. Needs gas cap and no stripped holes or cracks either. Thanks.

I played with them some to make them softer.

New thread Ways to eliminate vicious deflection while riding? 6/27/2019 7:15 AM

I have this issue with the bars jerking all over the place when riding slower stuff or even faster trails with roots or objects you have to go over. I rode yesterday at a place that is 85% rocks with sand. There are some spots were you have to slow down ... more »

Oil Change every 5-10hrs depending on riding conditions within those hours and how hard. If you ride dusty areas and pegged out a lot, change it every 5. Keep the air filter clean. Oiled well. I buy the maxima pre oiled one use filters so when its dirty ... more »

Reply to What to look for when inspecting bikes 6/14/2019 3:55 PM

I always look for: - Are the covers ragged out? Like barely any paint, big gouges, decent sized dents? Are they aftermarket or recently replaced? Small normal wear is fine. - Bolts being mismatched is a good one. I dont mind hardware store bolts on say ... more »

Reply to Thor experinces? 6/13/2019 2:59 AM

Thor makes solid gear. If you wear knee braces no pants will last very long. But regular knee pads/shin guards should have no issue. Id say get it.

Reply to Good deal for a 2010 yz250f? 6/12/2019 12:29 PM

Idk why everyone on here is ragging on used bikes like everyone wanting another bike has 10k to throw at a brand new one. Personally I would get it if you could get him down to 2000-2100 range. And have him take it to a shop of your choice and have them ... more »

Reply to how often should i change trans oil? 6/12/2019 8:46 AM

Every 5-10hrs. Used to change it based off rides on old bikes but now that i have something nice, i change it even if it needs it or not. $20 is nothing for good oil.

Reply to KTM 350 chain options 6/9/2019 10:34 PM

Exactly. Unless you're some supercross/motocross pro you wont notice a difference. Normal non oring or xring chains wear in like 30 hours and cost about $15-20 cheaper. Just spend the $100 on a real good oring/xring and it will easily last 2 sets of ... more »

Reply to Preparing bike for display... 6/7/2019 11:47 AM

If its gonna be on display just drain everything. No sense in leaving fluids in a bike that will be sitting for a while on display. All the display bikes I have ever seen never have anything in them because they are not ridden. Also leaks wont happen. ... more »

Reply to Bib Mousses or Tubeliss? 6/6/2019 8:45 PM

Thought the same. Might go with mousses. Hell if i hate em or what not im only out $80 and not $300 according to what a set goes for new online. Will i need different tires or what though? Im running a kenda washougal 2 f/r.

New thread Bib Mousses or Tubeliss? 6/6/2019 8:22 PM

Can get a crazy deal on both. $65 per wheel tubliss or $40 a wheel mousses. Both are brand new. Guy bought both to try but had to sell everything bike wise. Anyways, i hear mixed reviews on both. Never had either. Always ran tubes. Not very fond of possibly ... more »
