I don't see the appeal at all. The current 2-stroke chassis/body is much preferable to that abomination. People just want change for the sake of change sometimes.

Added reply in a thread Kreft Moto Plush Tank 6/21/2021 12:37 PM

The thing with the Kreft tank, though, is it has a switch to enable or disable it. So you can theoretically have the best of both worlds. Set your forks up for MX, then open the switch to get the plushness when you want to go off road. Seems pretty cool. ... more »

The NRJC is the same diameter as the NRKC but the clip grooves are cut 1/2 clip position leaner. Yes, the jetting chart shows use of the NRJC as temps get cooler, but it also shows going to clip-4 and using a bigger main jet. The net result is richer.

The lucas likely has a lower flash point so it is burning more cleanly/completely so you don't get the spooge out the back. Do you have the spare jet kit that came with the bike? Replace the stock NRKC needle with the NRJC from the spares and put the ... more »

What year bike? What fuel and oil are you using? Is the jetting currently stock?

Added reply in a thread Alpinestars tech 10 wearing through after short period. 6/18/2021 9:12 PM

Yuppp... AStars for comfort and style(?) over durability and protection. Good marketing for that Alpinestars "Style" right here.

I was there. A special moto memory to be able to witness that. To add to the greatness of this, remember this was his first National of the season. He missed the first 4 rounds after demolishing himself in that nasty crash at the Vegas SX finale only ... more »

Added reply in a thread Husqvarna TC/FC 21/22 Owner Reviews 6/18/2021 9:34 AM

I have a 20 and a 21 Husky. So I compare them back to back regularly. I like the short suspension, and the 21/22 stuff just works a little better. The 21/22 2-strokes are really nice. Big part of why I like the shorter suspension is I have really short ... more »

Added reply in a thread Switching fuels to VPR -storage? 6/18/2021 9:30 AM

Another thing to consider when not draining some of these fuels is where you store your bike. I am pretty headache prone from strong chemical smells. If I leave some of these fuels in a bike and it's in my garage it will stink the whole house out. I ... more »

Your bike should have the crank TDC locating bolt on the lower right side of the cases, under the water pump. It has a thick washer on it. When the washer is removed and the crank is truly at TDC, the bolt will go deep enough in the hole to engage a ... more »

Pics would help. Most case bolt thread holes have very little metal around them, not enough to be able to drill/tap/insert. In that case, best bet might be to weld/drill/tap. In either case, you're taking everything back apart.

Added reply in a thread Broken shock spring? 6/15/2021 6:38 AM

Yes, I've seen broken shock springs before. It happens. I think most of the rubbing on the shock body happened after the spring broke and got cocked sideways on there.

Usually it's easier to just buy a complete replacement seal head that is already loaded with the bushing and seals.

Added reply in a thread FC/SXF 350 owners, best mods? 6/14/2021 7:30 AM

I've covered all of this in the other long ass thread and others, but I consider replacing the cam chain tensioner a "must do" since there is the potential of totally grenading your motor if you don't. stock rim locks are junk. Both of mine bent in less ... more »

Added reply in a thread Ktm 85 water on flywheel 6/13/2021 8:08 AM

Even with the gasket well sealed, you can get condensation inside the housing in a humid environment and with large temp swings. I've found the KTM 85 cover and gasket to seal pretty well. If you have concerns that the cover may be warped, get a new ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why do 50cc rev the hell out of the bike on the starting gate while Dad picks up the rear tire? 6/11/2021 11:11 AM

Yep, blowin'er out. It's a 2 stroke thing to get rid of excess fuel/oil laying in the crank, etc. What cracks me up is the people that have carried this habit over to 4 strokes. Nothing like a full gate of 250-Beginners revving the piss out of their ... more »

Added reply in a thread 06 YZ250 Lectron fitment issue 6/11/2021 9:40 AM

The Lectron is longer front to rear than the stock carb, correct? If so, removing the reed spacer is probably a good way to get back some of that difference. That being said, I've heard of some people saying they get reduced reed life without the spacer ... more »
