ahhh, now I feel like an idiot. Haven't a clue why I didn't realize that myself. I use lanyards for other things, and the thought never crossed my mind

Started new thread Lightweight MX pants with pocket 2/13/2019 6:43 PM

Do any of you know of any warm weather pants that have a small pocket? I just need a pocket large enough for my car key, that's it. I just want to be able to lock my car, and have my key, I don't need me wallet/phone or anything big like that. I know ... more »

That's not bad at all. Even though I love the bike as is, that's cheap enough to justify trying it out.

How much did it cost you?

The YZ is definitely a pig, but I like it so much more than my Husky. Husky still a good bike though, much better than my last Suzuki.

Thats a good idea. I like the stock triple clamp offset actually, but I do want to try the 19’ fork tubes and lugs/spacers. A stiffer connection to the front cant hurt!

I have heard KTMs factory bikes are the best.. but After trying lots of new standard MX bikes, I dont think the KTMs are better than the Japanese bikes. I still prefer the japanese bikes.

I think Husqvarna being a bitch since they won't hire him full time for a 2 year contract or something. I'd rather see him than Anderson personally.

Yup. I have read about lots of guys (at least 100) your size and how they dont like the 14-17 YZ450 chassis and how it handles, and I guess the 250f as well. You must hate the Yamaha two strokes then too, because they have that classic yamaha vague feeling ... more »

I read that the 14 and 15 YZs were known for tearhearting fore and aft. Is that what you are talking about? My 15’ RMZ tearhearted, but I dont feel it on my 17’. I believe they made changes to the 16’ bike to make it more stable fore and aft, but some ... more »

How big are you? Seems like height/weight has a lot to do with how much people like the last gen YZ.

The 2018 Husky definitely feels good as a taller rider, but I still think the 16 and 17 YZ feels better. On the 2019 YZ, my knees were higher above the seat, where I’m not able to grip as well. Flat corners may be the only place I prefer my Husky. I ... more »

That's interesting. So many people have told me to sell the 17' and get a 19', but I have this gut feeling I will still prefer the 17'. I don't like more compact, more front end weight bias bikes. I am a bigger guy as well, and I think that has a lot ... more »

What other bikes are similar to this? What about the new Kawasakis? The old kawi's had that feel. I like more of a rear steering feel personally. My 18' FC350 is fun, but it's not as rear steering as I'd like. I chose to buy a leftover 17' YZ450f over ... more »

Am I a lone wolf on this? A lot of magazines and people didn't like how the 16' and 17' YZ cornered, but I simply love it. I have owned and ridden newer bikes, and I don't like them nearly as much in stock form.

I have had a few Suzuki GSXR super sport bikes and loved them, but I didn't like my stock 2015 RMZ 450. The cornering was amazing, and the ergonomics were probably the one the best I have tried, but otherwise the bike was terrible for me and where/how ... more »
