Yeah, they're gonna leave the largest consumer economy in the world and go setup shop somewhere else.

Yamaha nowadays reminds me of KTM in the early 2000's. Holeshots for days in the small bike class, but Chassis setup seemingly just a step behind and not much success in the 450's.

It'd be interesting to see how the results would change on a GP style course with a mix of offroad and MX. The Kawi, Husky, and KTM would probably go 1,2,3 as you really notice weight differences in tighter sections, rocks/roots and off camber turns. ... more »

Dirtbike Mag had a photo of him riding a CR250 when he was super young, Circa 2002. That thing looked more slammed in the back than RC's bike, haha.

" It can be done. It is not that much fun." And you know this how? Because Vital MTB told you so? Stevie Wonder could see that the track they used was far from optimal. I bet the racers still had a good time though.

People get upset about E-bikes because they're self righteous snobs. It's like a "wine expert" telling you that you should NEVER drink white zinfandel. Hikers and other non-bicyclists say the same things about regular bikes that e bike haters say about

Yeah, but they replace a lot of parts with lighter matetials also. Bolts, fasteners, axles, springs, hubs, wheels nuts, washers, it all adds up. The amount of add on weight is minimal, they're not using wrap around handguards or anything. Minimum weight ... more »

That's pretty much true IMO about small changes being a Pandora's Box for average riders. The one area where you DEFINITELY WILL notice a big difference is when it comes to weight differences. Everything on earth is subject to the laws of physics. Power ... more »

Quoted from MXA 2019 450 shootout. "Suzuki has no history of good clutches to fall back on. The Suzuki clutch has always crept on the starting line, slipped if you used it too hard and gone through plates like a bad juggler. If you use your clutch, you ... more »

It's not Cooper’s fault that ET and MM were inconsistent .Other than that, what did he luck into?

I'm not an MXGP expert by any means, but it doesn't seem like the Japanese brands have super strong teams in MX2. That factory Husky ride could have been a pretty big advantage when he raced accross the pond IMO.

CW or Musquin all day. Unless Eli becomes a holeshot artist between now and A-1. SX tittle for KR is a long shot IMO, he seems to get stuck behind people in SX now. JA21 could be the spoiler.

I think your perspective would be totally different if you raced professionally for a living VS being a fan. Webb's response of "I could care less about outdoors," suggests that there's a pretty large difference in payout, at least at KTM.

Gas it early and stay on it + rear suspension that gives you good traction, but isn't wallowey+ balance skills= power wheelies

Yes, but he'd probably have more bad races, especially in Supercross

Added reply in a thread Barcia? 7/28/2019 9:29 PM

Fevbre's win is a moot point though if we're talking about Barcia. FIM bikes wouldn't be AMA legal because they can modify the frames and engine cases.
