Added reply in a thread I'm on the horns of a dilemma... 11/23/2020 5:47 AM

Another vote for the 350. In my opinion 450s are excessive for most people and the myth that a 350 needs to be ridden like a 125 is far from the truth. Don't get me wrong, they continue to build power the further theyre revved but just think of a 350 ... more »

Bike looks awesome but I can't help but think that this isn't a final version. Much like how Geico made a temporary off-season design before coming out with their new all red & white design that was on the bikes the last few years. As a few others ... more »

No problem my dude, it can be a great place when it wants to be! Thats a good idea about the nail, i screwed mine in then measured the gap from the screw face to the slave cylinder and cut that off, hope it works out for you dude and let me know how

Similar thing happened to my Husky, what I ended up doing was just using a slightly longer bolt which did the job OK. I initially picked up a bolt that was a decent bit longer and just cut it back until it was just short enough to actually clamp the ... more »

Thanks dude! Yea it's a pretty sweet site, definitely has more potential with a few tweeks but works great for the most part! I live in Ireland and didn't even know they were an Irish based company until after I'd ordered them which was a sweet bonus! ... more »

You got that right!

Added reply in a thread Bought the wife some new clothes 9/29/2020 2:48 PM

I would love a set of Akrapovic but so hard to justify the money when you compare to the Yosh system, I just really like the Akra stuff and Yosh is very common on these bikes. All great choices though!

Finally got round to getting my 2020 CRF 250 all dressed up and think it turned out perfectly! I really liked this design on the previous generation Geico Hondas so I designed and tweaked it on Motocal to suit the new plastics design. All it needs now

Added reply in a thread Ktm plastic shock collar /preload 9/13/2020 9:50 AM

I just use one hand to turn the spring then use the other hand to turn the preload ring. Spinning both together works fine and saves you wrecking the preload ring or buying any special tools

Added reply in a thread 21' vs 20' Tc 8/25/2020 1:49 PM

For $400 that is a no-brainer for me. Especially with 2 strokes I would say the extra money is worth it alone for having a freshie and you'll make it back at re-sale with the better model year too

Added reply in a thread Flat spot in power on a FI bike 8/19/2020 2:17 PM

What bike? Sounds like an electrical issue to me, maybe some sort of voltage issue at a certain point in the RPMs. Do you have any similar bikes that friends have that you could swap ECU etc with?

Added reply in a thread crf250r hard to kick over after rebuild 8/11/2020 7:17 AM

Are the cams located correctly? Looking at the middle picture it looks like its not quite correctly aligned and is sitting off to one side slightly so I wonder if when you tighten the cam holder and top cover is it just forcing them further into the ... more »

Added reply in a thread crf250r hard to kick over after rebuild 8/9/2020 12:54 AM

Was going to suggest this too. Definitely sounds like cam chain is too tight, remove and retract the tensioner then screw it back in to let it auto-tension

Just thought I would post my positive experience with Motocal. I'd been working on a set of graphics on and off for a couple of months and finally decided to purchase them during their 25% off sale. I had spent a long time designing and tweaking these

Added reply in a thread Grease the bolt? 7/7/2020 4:11 PM

I grease all my linkage bolts lightly (shock, bottom link front & rear and also swingarm). I don't put too much on but just a bit to help it move smoothly and make removing it easier in future when cleaning.
