Holy shit thank goodness they are working on tough blocks!

You can definitely use a full size GoPro under the visor, you just need a different backing plate on the frame/housing (though you won't be able to see the touchscreen with the cam in the housing, but that doesn't really matter).

I use 2nd in tight turns, stock gearing. Sounds like I need to work on my corner entry speed

Looking at the ratios it's even taller than 13/48. 13/50 0.260 13/49 0.265 14/52 0.269 13/48 0.270 14/51 0.274 Those boys using first gear in places?

Ride Engineering. I have their bar mounts but they sell 5mm and 10mm spacers separately. I tried running bars with a taller bend but for whatever reason I just really feel comfortable with the Carmichael angles. Just needed them a little higher.

ProTaper Carmichael (pretty low bend) but with 5mm spacers to raise it up a little.

I had some bad diving and bottoming issues with the forks when I got the bike, but kept the stock springs and added oil to fight the last half instead (not a ton, I'm at 330 now), because the small stuff comfort felt good to me. I did go one lighter ... more »

I've never had issues with overheating on the bike. Have 48.5 hours on it so far, it's my moto/track race bike only (no trails/woods). I don't let it sit and idle or run without moving air through it. What conditions generally cause issues to occur for ... more »

The non-SX header moved the power from the bottom-mid to more mid-top. I liked the low end grunt better, as I like to lug the bike, and the SX header is a lot more like the stock one. I never did a back to back with stock vs SX though, as it was over ... more »

Added reply in a thread How Much Quieter is the FMF Powercore 4.1 Slip On w/ Insert 2/12/2020 8:11 PM

I have a 2019 KX450, so it isn't a direct comparison, but I tried the 4.1 first without the insert and it was shockingly loud compared to stock. I took the insert to the track with me the first time I rode with it (mine came with it), just in case. The ... more »

I weighed stock vs the non-SX FMF system, and the whole system was around 3 lbs lighter than stock. I have the SX version now which should weigh a little more because of the longer header.

I've got the WCL set and I like it. It's not a lot of bang for the buck though. If you are on a budget (which it doesn't seem you are) I'd avoid it. The one area it seemed to make a difference for me was changing lines coming into a corner in race situations, ... more »

I have the FMF SX header and originally had (and sold) the regular FMF one for exactly that reason. I like the low end grunt because I like to lug the bike around more and short shift ahead of time when I can. Half the reason I switched to racing this ... more »

I grew up racing Hondas as a kid in the 80s and early 90s, and was hugely brand-loyal back then. Wanted to see Honda win all the championships (which they did a lot of), and was a fan of any pro rider on one. But I was a kid. I came back to racing a ... more »

Why did I even come into this thread. I've had some bad shit, but broken bones and sleeping-on-the-track concussions are childs play compared to what some dudes go through. Makes me wonder why we do it sometimes.
