Added reply in a thread all torque wrenches needed 6/24/2021 3:59 PM

All the bolts on a motorcycle are large enough that you don't need a fine-gauge torque wrench. Just pick up a Standard bar-style or a digital torque wrench. That's all you need. Unless you're talking about "TORX" wrenches. Do KTMs still use those weird ... more »

What is this "supercross" of which you speak? OK, just kidding, but I definitely prefer real motocross.

Sorry. Dogs deserve to live much longer than humans do.

The text on the crossbar pad reads "cry" in German. Maybe in context it means "describe" or "tell all." Don't hold back criticisms, in other words.

Yeah, I believe you. It's pretty janky. But, you get what you pay for and I don't want another "nice" thing to worry about. I already have three MX bikes, an MTB, two cars, and a lawn to keep maintained. ... more »

Move when you feel you are ready. If you've ridden a friend's 450 and think you can handle it, have at it. To all the commenters on here: the OP has been riding a 250 smoker for a year and a half... that thing would have killed him by now if he wasn't ... more »

Words themselves are never the problem. The intent behind them can be, however. Well, I take that back. The made up word, "supposably," really grates on my nerves. The proper term is supposedly.

I usually only need ice in my cooler for one day, so I have a cheap-ass Sam's Club cooler. I think it's a Coleman or something. I don't want or need an expensive one. The one I got for less than $30 has wheels and a retractable pull handle, like travel

1) Install a new spark plug. 2) Run the air filter as dry as possible, like mentioned above. 3) Keep the throttle cable adjusted with not too much play. 4) Blow that motor out for all it's worth on the stand once warm. It sometimes takes 10 -20 seconds ... more »

From a 2-stroke guy who rides a 2006 YZ250 and has ridden the 2010, 2012, 2016 and 2020 YZ450Fs, the standard YZ250 frame and bodywork is a far better platform for a 250 2-stroke. Why put the heart of a lion into the body of a blue pig? Make that 4-stroke ... more »
