Added reply in a thread YZ125 Jetting help 5/11/2021 7:50 AM

Stock YZ jetting is pretty good. You should be fine to run a mix of pump and either of those. It will likely be a little on the rich side and a bit spoogy but should be rideable.

Scale? You fill with Nitrogen until you reach a certain pressure, just like filling tires. Another thread with info: https://www.vitalmx.com/forums/Moto-Related,20/Affordable-nitrogen-tank-setup,1387577#post_4704082 This is the hose I use to adapt the ... more »

Added reply in a thread What 125 would best fit a shorter guy? 5/10/2021 11:07 AM

Here's my anecdotal take on it. I have a 2020 FC350 which is the "normal" suspension. Even that bike compared to the corresponding KTM's "feels" a hair smaller. I believe the different tank, subframe, body, and seat make a small overall difference. The ... more »

Added reply in a thread Hardpack wheelset for 250f 5/10/2021 10:50 AM

100 will go on a 2.15" rim no prob. That is how the KTM/Husky 125's come stock. But I'd think you'd want the 110/90 for the hardpack with marbles.

The numbers don't even tell the story. Sitting on the bike and riding it are eye opening. Being so low makes all the 2021 Huskies handle awesome and the light weight of the 125 makes it really great. For those who don't want to drop the cash for a 2021 ... more »

5-7, 5-8 maybe on a good day. The short legs are the tough part though.

Same height and inseam here. 2021 Husky is by far the best option. I have one and it is a game changer for us short-leggers. I had a 2006 YZ125 prior. No comparison. The YZ is frickin tall ! I did have a second seat for the YZ that was nicely shaved ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2021 FC250 Bogging & Making a BAD Engine Noise 5/6/2021 3:28 PM

Yeah, that sounds like cam chain noise, but hard to say. The stupid hydraulic chain tensioner is a known issue. I'm guessing one potential scenario is your cam chain jumped time due to the known chain slack issue with these tensioners. Here's a previous ... more »

Added reply in a thread "Small bore" kits? 5/6/2021 12:40 PM

This. The best part of the KTM 350 is the light, flickable, non-tiring feel compared to the 450. Having the reduced power of an under bore but still having the heavy inertia of the 450 crank sounds like the worst of both worlds to me.

Added reply in a thread 65’s? 5/6/2021 12:29 PM

I've laid this out in other threads before. For those saying that "it's the rider not the bike", yes, that is true. But if the riders are equal, the 10 less pounds of the KTM is a huge deal if you are racing. Repost from another thread: All in all, the ... more »

Oh yes, the Japanese have quite the love affair with proficient use of English !

I don't have any specific info, but I think that's the general consensus. All the factories dropped their direct teams in Japan except for Yamaha.

I've used the Prestone pre-diluted 50/50 in plenty of bikes. Works fine. No need for additional flushing if you already drained the system.

Added reply in a thread 125sx dies when tilted slightly to the side! Why? 5/3/2021 8:29 PM

Did you do the #5 slide as well? It is a critical piece of Digger's jetting. Something is weird having to use a 45 pilot. I am on 37.5 with no notch and I'm probably the richest in that whole thread. The float needle and seat are easily replaceable. ... more »

Honda does not have a factory team in the Japan Nationals any more. The lead Honda team is Honda Dream Racing Bells. Their top 250F rider is #2 Kai Oshiro. You can see his bike in this video. Appears to be pretty stock.

Yes, talking about FC/TC motocross bikes. Understood the off road bikes are spec'd differently.

Point of clarification, the rear master cylinder was already Brembo on the 2020 and 2021 (and likely earlier but those are what I have sitting here). The calipers are also Brembo. So, literally the only brake part that was Magura was the front master ... more »

Added reply in a thread 09 CRF 450 won’t stay running 5/2/2021 7:45 AM

Does this bike still have the original pump and filter from 2009? If so, you have set a new world record. The 2009's had a very bad problem with the filters clogging as they were very undersized. Initially Honda only sold the pump/filter as a very expensive ... more »

Keefer initially posted on IG that the lowered susp was dropped. Then about an hour later, he made a specific point to come back and correct himself and say the 2022's will have the lowered suspension.
