I was riding an older 250 2 stroke and "upgraded" to a 2018 KTM 350 XCF early this year. Bike was completely setup for the type of offroad racing I do and I thought it would be perfect. After 6 months of racing and trying to adjust to it, I gave up and ... more »

I don't know the answer but confirm it before assuming it will fit. I have an '02 and an '06 and I've seen strange differences when swapping parts between them... small things like different heights on disc bolts that cause problems. I'd volunteer to ... more »

This ^ Being able to ride a gear higher without worry of stalling makes all the difference.

I'm paraphrasing but I recall an interview after Hayden left Ducati where he said he felt like the bike was trying to kill him at times. Unbelievably fast but completely unpredictable and maybe that's one of the reasons for Stoner's very early retirement? ... more »

I can't believe you guys are missing it. This is obviously one of the bike setups Carmichael was testing back in 2004 so it could be priceless.

Baby arm. OK for normal riding but single to table is its kryptonite.

Doesn't have Stefan's genes. Stefan Everts never sat down on a bike EVER... even as he passed riders like Carmichael and Stewart. I read it here on Vital.

I really want that tank. I have '02 and '06 RM250s and the '06 needs a new tank due to the previous owner spinning 3 of the 4 shroud bolts. Plus, I mainly race offroad so the extra 0.25 gallons of capacity would be nice... at least that's the argument ... more »

I think it's harder to make it today than it was 10-15 years ago. In the past, there were always a few local fast guys that would make the gate on speed alone without much training but it take 100% commitment to even get in the program today. The cost ... more »

Added reply in a thread Who played other sports in high school? Anyone play in college? 1/26/2016 3:05 PM

I see your avatar but when and where'd you play your college ball? I played a couple of years of Juco ball but didn't want to go the small school route and I wasn't getting drafted anytime soon. I have ridden my whole life but the other sports didn't ... more »

I've done Yamaha (Jason Raines ran it), Honda and KTM ride days over the years and all of them were awesome. They rolled out new, fully prepped bikes and then let me ride them as hard as I wanted. KTM would stamp a card as you rode each bike so you had ... more »
