Added reply in a thread Showa Shock piston question. 4/9/2019 7:18 PM

Thanks for the tips. I ended up warming the ring in some hot water. That helped a ton as it made the band more pliable. I then used a fork seal bullet to help guide the band and keep it from getting torn up on the pistons sharp edges. I lubed it all ... more »

There are a couple of things to take into consideration when installing cabinets in a garage. First, the floor usually has some slope for water drainage. Second, there is usually some cement footing which sticks out farther than the wall studs. First,

Started new thread Showa Shock piston question. 4/9/2019 4:59 PM

Does anyone know the secret to easily getting a new shock piston ring/band on a Showa shock piston? I am talking about the OEM style not the split Race Tech style. Any help would be appreciated. The bike is an 06 RM250 if that matters.

Anyone who mountain bikes has seen the stink eye from someone who looks like they fell out of the REI catalog. Just like bike guys hate quads, hikers seem to hate everyone on wheels.

I agree on the urbanization but not on Alta. It is all about places to ride. Growing up in Southern CA in the 80's, there were so many places to ride for free and right from your house. Just about every neighborhood had a canyon nearby with trails. There ... more »

From my camping experience, I would throw this out there. If you are on the road camping/motoing etc., it is nice to be able to unhook and have a stand alone vehicle. Otherwise, you are running around doing errands in a vehicle that can be hard to park ... more »

That's pretty funny. My first bike was won from a raffle too. I won a Yamahopper from some school raffle. Dad and I went down to the local Yamaha dealer to pick it up and we ended up trading it out for a Yamaha MX80 trail bike. That Yamahopper wouldn't ... more »

These are 7075 aluminum and hard coated at $150 with shipping. Add a KG clutch kit (they make the clutches for most OEM's). Take the extra cash and put it into something that matters like suspension. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kawasaki-KX-250-2006-2011-Mitaka-Billet-Alloy-Clutch-Basket/272848999214?hash=item3f8711532e:g:9gAAAOxy14VRTzOw ... more »
