No, James was a FMF rider until the end of 99. He signed with PC in 2000. FMF wanted to keep him until he turned Pro and then he would have been a Honda rider. I admit he had special treatment. Team Green would haul his 85s around whilst my babies where ... more »

I can live with a little controversy. The wheel always turns. KTM might find themselves on the wrong end down the line. Regardless, we are in for a treat.....

Stewart had unique speed and the balls to back it up. Carmichael had raw speed but smaller balls than Stewart. Carmicheal was smarter when it came to race craft and strategy. He looked at the big picture. Reed had both balls and strategy but was often ... more »

I share similar sentiments. Motocross cross is my blood, raced for years but was not good enough to make A living off racing. My next move was to do a motorcycle mechanics trade. The combination of racing and understanding setup and knowing how to build ... more »

I certainly ain't no legend, just been fortunate to have worked in the industry and met great people along the way. I was also fortunate to find Vital years ago but due to uncalled for and disrespectful behavior, Gibby took his big stick out...or a Mod ... more »

I did not mean to offend anyone. Its just a interesting read and much info can be found relating to Avgas on various other forums. I ran AV100LL in my 1993 CR250. Only mod was a FMF pipe and i tickled the jetting and timing a tad. In 2009 we ran Avgas

Tried calling ya but I guess you are grinding away at work. You won't owe me anything. If Danny has a set he will give it to me and then it becomes a gift from him to me then to you. Fingers crossed.

Don't know but sounds like an interesting story. Maybe someone on Vital can elaborate a little more.

Reply to VP 110 , possible fuel contamination after so long? 11/1/2021 2:58 AM
