Lemme know Jeffro. The boy is outgrowing the 85 BW and can handle my FC350 fine. A 250 might be perfect for him, just step right past a 125/150. Hammer

That's overkill on changes. I do my FC350 at 7-10 hours, with filter, and the oil is still very clean at 7, with only a little color at 10. These clutches run clean stock, and that's where most of the crap comes from as the friction plates wear. If you ... more »

I remember reading that you don't want these full, but at 1/2 glass level. Too much crank splash at higher RPMs costs power or increases crankcase pressure. I think that's what I read. I run my 18 at 1/2. Hammer 663s

I have that exact same setup on my 18 FC350 and it is freaking awesome. Transforms the bike. Hammer

I herniated 2 in May (L3/4 and L4/5) and I've not been on the bike since. I'm doing PT and trying to get back to riding. Tough road at 57 years old. Fortunately I am pretty fit and strong from years of training so I hope that I can recover. Big jumps ... more »

First bike? How big is the kid? It can be a good bike depending on answers to those. If he's a newbie and under 5' forget it. If he's got some real seat time on 65s and is 5'+ and 90 lbs, it's a great bike. Add a Steahly heavy flywheel weight and (maybe) ... more »

Cool thread. My 13 year old wants to find a KX125 for a rebuild. He's heading to high school this Fall (assuming it's open!) so maybe we can do this together as a project for him. Hammer
