Well, all forks are "functionally the same" except maybe rigid forks right?

The job is to provide controlled front wheel travel in some way.

Gen 1s are Open Chamber. Gen 2s are Closed chamber. I went 1s for ease of maintenance and a more plush feel. I'm not big or fast enough to need the extra capabilities that the Gen 2s offer. Hammer 663s

How big is the boy? Mine was on a 65 for 2 years cause he was (and still is) very small for his age. At almost 15 he is still not 100 lbs, but on his KX105 he absolutely rips with the power/weight ratio. If your boy is a big 9 year old, a small wheel ... more »

It'll work fine - bike will run very crisp and clean. Hard to say you'll get any "kick" out of a 125 with just fuel, but it will make sure you'll have access to all the motor can produce, assuming you ride it that way.

I wore the Leatt Dual Axis guards last night for my races at PIR. I didn't really even notice them, other than the lower strap around my left calf was a bit too tight. They were lighter, less bulky, and more comfortable than the C Frames I am so very ... more »

I wouldn't do that. That is essentially what caused this situation. I'm not gong to go into the details I was given, but never use propane tanks inside an enclosed space. I don't care if you have sensors, tip over alarms, or other safety precautions ... more »

Added reply in a thread New front brake pads - now brake drags/wheels locked up 4/30/2021 11:55 AM

^This. You pushed the pucks in to put in the thicker pads. This filled the reservoir to the top and left no room for fluid expansion when the fluid heats under braking. This can really be an issue on rear brakes since they can get super hot for some ... more »

What clear? Most I've read about end up going yellow over time. I've vapor blasted mine to raw but would like to protect it if I can. Mike

What pipe is that, and did you clear coat the head? About to finish up my 79 RM125 motor. Mike

Added reply in a thread Please help if you can - track RV fire. 4/30/2021 8:57 AM

I haven't heard a cause. I will ask them, just in case it helps others. I use a propane tank heater in my small trailer on cold days, but never sleep in there. Could just as easily happen while I'm sitting in front of it I guess.

No he’s right. 78 has the Cable rear brake too. Swing arm a dead giveaway. The 79 Swing-arm is way more robust.

I'm looking at a Jemco cone pipe and a 34mm carb through Boyesen reeds. I'm doing a nikasil liner on the jug and a PVL ignition to modernize it a bit. Head is getting a .5mm mill and I'll stack 2 base gaskets. I don't plan on porting it at all. A mix ... more »

Love that. Mine used to be waiting in the driveway when I got home, all geared up and ready to ride our home track. I got dressed and rode no matter how bad a day I'd had at work, and it always helped. One of my favorite things to do now (well, pre-COVID) ... more »

I've been running Leatt C Frames for years, and am going to try out the Dual Axis this week for the first time. This thread got me thinking like Keefer - you don't know what might work until you try. At $90 it's cheap enough to try a change. If I don't ... more »
