Likely scooters/small bikes in India and other large population Asian countries is where Honda is making numbers. That likely accounts for much of the sales of quite a few companies on there. Our numbers in the US are dwarfed by those types of sales. ... more »

Coming from low elevations and riding at 10Kft on Thursday is a good way to feel like dog shit for race day on Saturday.

Many people say the shock feels a tad more supple with the bladder. I've been running the Race Tech bladder kit about 30 hrs with no probs. Haven't heard of any probs with others.

Stock piston reservoir is a pita for a home garage technician to properly bleed and recharge. Bladder setup is much easier which is why many folks replace the piston setup with a bladder on first rebuild.

I had to heat my reservoir with a mapp torch and use the biggest strap wrench I could find. Even then, it barely broke loose. I could easily see where if you used just a pin spanner in the holes it would twist or crumple the reservoir. I think the ideal ... more »

Same prob here. Scott Fury is my current go to for minimum nose pinch/squish. Over the years, I have found that, in general, the top of the line goggles are worse. They tend to have these fancy schmancy quadruple-layer foams that are firmer/thicker and ... more »

Stock PW? Pump gas all the way. Ethanol free if you can source it easily. Otherwise add some ethanol fuel stabilizer to the can just to reduce gummed up carb headaches. The PW50 I have has a bowl drain screw on the bottom of the carb. I drain the carb ... more »

I'm in AZ now but I've lived in some extreme humidity before. The last thing I would do in a humid environment is add more water to the equation. Once gear gets water/sweat logged and doesn't breathe you are cooking. Evaporative cooling needs evaporation ... more »

How did you handle the cone valve forks since the 2021 has the shorter suspension? Do they make shorter cone valves specifically for these Husky's ?

You didn't mention if you have changed the slide. The 5 slide would be very important in that type of tight riding with so much 1/8 - 1/2 throttle. Would likely alleviate the spooge and loading up quite a bit.

This. Definitely do not buy a 125 to have as your sole bike before getting a good try on one. I have one, and I love it, but I would not want it to be my only bike. I have a 350 also. I cannot tell you how many old/big/Vet guys thought they had the 125 ... more »

My settings are very similar to yours, main difference being I am running AvGas. Full settings back about page 10. I originally started off with a 500 main and the bike was too lean. Numerous folks in the thread have related that the 125/150 seem to ... more »

Added reply in a thread Random spoke/wheel truing question... 5/21/2021 6:44 AM

Since most MX wheels are 36 spokes, be careful doing every 3rd spoke since 36 is divisible by 3. This will have you hitting the same spokes lap after lap around the wheel. If you do every 3rd spoke you have to remember to advance 1 spoke at the beginning ... more »

Added reply in a thread Random spoke/wheel truing question... 5/20/2021 3:59 PM

Kind of. You'd be better off alternating sides, more spacing, like every 5th spoke or so. Even then, you're still going to need to recheck and correct the true as you go and when done. If the goal is simply to replace all spokes and nipples, I'd just ... more »

When you think about getting cone valves or a Vortex, think back to the time you couldn't even tell you were on the wrong bike.
