That's so cool I had to do it. 41 years ago could push out the garage and go ride . I don't even remember why I wanted to ride - no one I knew rode anything. I remember that I had posters all over my room of the late-70s moto heros and was dying to emulate

Resurrecting this old one - I just moved the wheels, swingarm, and rear brake setup from our 2012 Kx100 BW to our 2018 Kx85 SW. It was a straight swap. Dogbones are same length. Easy. Anyone want to buy a KX100 small wheel? Great shape. 10oz Steahly ... more »

I had a 1952 TO30 like that for my first track. They suck. No power steering makes them a bytch to drive with a full bucket. No down pressure on the bucket so hard to do faces right. 2WD spins when it's wet. Very basic and dumb PTO will kill you if you ... more »

Hard no on a subcompact. They don't have a wide enough track to be stable on any side slope. Tilling a berm is enough to roll one, and that's a bad way to end up. I've rented a few smaller ones to till and came close to flipping a couple times. Scary ... more »

Does it really matter? Unless you are pro (getting paid) who cares? I'm Novice speed most days, Intermediate on a really good one. But at 56 no one cares if I'm fast, not even me. To me a good day is a day where I'm riding smooth and safe all day. Some ... more »

I just use a dremel with a cutting wheel to cut the screen out of the stock cage. 15 minute job. DT-1 makes an excellent filter too, and 40% off on many holidays. Ditto the Mika products. I've used both for many years on different bikes. Right now I'm ... more »

I freaking love my FC350. I'm dropping a Radius CX in it next week, a Lucky system over the winter, and I'm gonna put 200 hours on it in the next 5 years. It's the perfect mix of rev and torque. Mike
