Every 1.5 hours? So you'd have to do an oil change mid race during a GNCC... KTM recommends every 10 hours for my 450. I do the oil every 5, or so, and change the filter every other...o always looks fine. My 350 had 175 hours on it when sold...OEM crank ... more »

In my experience, most 18" tires are actually taller than their 19" counterparts.

Added reply in a thread Wheel sizes ? 5/29/2020 4:10 PM

Honda had a 23" front wheel at one point I believe. I'd imagine it has been tried by all of the OEM's at some point. This is actually a pretty good question. As it stands right now, I would rather run an 18" wheel on the track over a 19" wheel in the ... more »

Good to see you guys back. I had a set of you hubs on my 350 as well as a set on my KX 250...always worked well and looked awesome. Current owner of my 350 is still using them, well over 250 hours so far.

Zeta actually makes some really nice kits as well. Everything I have seen from them is top notch.

How are you guys breaking throttle tubes? I've been riding for more than 20 years and have yet to break one. When I broke my femur the bike tumbled so bad that it pulled the throttle side grip off and was never found...also bent both sides of the bars....throttle ... more »

Added reply in a thread High Point 5/10/2020 7:54 AM

Don't get me wrong, it can be an awesome track.....really separates the men from the boys. But, I've gone there in a near drought and it ended up being a mud race. Also tends to be more hard packed than you'd think. You'd think HP would be local (to ... more »

Haha fat chance. High Point is rarely good besides the national weekend. Haven't made the trek to HP for years because of it.

That is your defense? C'mon bro, that is weak sauce at best. The kid posted it for the public to see, regardless of the platform. You are trying to talk down upon Vital members, whilst simultaneously posting on Vital...Open mouth, insert foot.

Well he cares enough to post on a (huge) social media platform. Clearly he wants someone to be talking about it.

Added reply in a thread ZRT throttle tube 5/7/2020 6:42 PM

$180 is pretty spendy, especially with PC and Works Connection offering them for less than half the price. Plus, you have to cut up a set of handlebars to make it work. The bearing throttle tubes are nice, no denying that. But, with the advent of lock-on ... more »

Markee have a Snickers dude. You're an insufferable douche bag when you are hungry.... Although it seems you may just be a waste of air in general after that gem.

New Suzuki price vs new other brand price? Not a chance. That's $3k less than any other bike new...not happening. The green machine would be the best IMO. Kawasaki has really good blow out deals if you watch. Suzukis are good as well. You just have to ... more »

I make a living working on all kinds of motorcycles, ATV's, SXS's, and watercraft. I do not find them to be faster. I find them to be clumsy and lacking leverage to crack bolts loose easily. A DeWalt impact helps disassemble most things. But I use a ... more »
