Pro-Vue and GogglesRX worked for me, I was a contact wearer until my script went south. A lens in front of my eye was the only option With these it took a few rides to adapt, there is some movement that takes some getting used to. But once that settles ... more »

Added reply in a thread What 2018+ bike turns and corners as well as the 06 RM250? 5/18/2020 9:18 AM

I have owned RM250 (02), RM125 (05), RM-Z250 (09), RM-Z450 (14), actually more years if I went even further back... They all handled well, cornering was always the best - probably the RM125 was stand out of all of these That being said, KX450 '19 is ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why anodize aluminum frame 3/25/2020 4:16 PM

Doesn't seem like a gain in any manner, and I imagine a lot of effort/cost to apply (strip down, and eliminate EVERY steel component prior to anodizing) PC is even less appealing IMO...if I see another black ALU frame, it would be too soon Actually prefer ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why anodize aluminum frame 3/25/2020 10:06 AM

Started new thread Why anodize aluminum frame 3/25/2020 9:12 AM

Paging Michael Lindsey, I heard you mention this on your KX450 build video...so why anodize the frame, other than for color change? Wondering is hardcoat clear anodize has been tried to "toughen" the aluminum surface. Seems to me Suzuki does this on ... more »
