Anderson's bike is the one I was thinking of. I'd probably change the red for black, drop the Rockstar (since I sponsor THEM!) and move the "H" up to get this look (photo). I saved that picture for future reference.

I'd like to try to get the old Husky polished tank look on my TC 125. I know... Ryan Sipes?....did one at RBSR but I want a little bigger mirror, somehow.

Sheesh.. I did 10,000 jumps where I did nothing but pull in the clutch and rev a little before I ever _touched_ the brake. The idea of landing a 4S with a stalled engine, on a jump big enough to have time to brake tap and THEN get the revs back up for ... more »

Nope. We're getting rain on the ranch right now and expecting more and I can't leave when it's raining because sometimes fences wash out and I don't want 1800 head of cattle running willy-nilly all over the place. But who knows? I'd like to be there ... more »

One more question.... is it necessary to replace the main crank bearings during a rebuild? They are OEM, 140 hour. I don't mind doing it but those are some solid bearings, and expensive, too ($75 for one). Again... I'll do it it's smart, but if not, ... more »

Have you opened up the side panels to get some air to the airbox? That's still a "thing" on the 2020, right? My '15 runs GREAT but I have a Keihin on it. Both of our KTM 150's have Lectrons. Mikuni on the shelf, but the list of advice given above is ... more »

That's nothing. When I bought my 2018 KTM 150 XC-W, I called and e-mailed the dealer a few times. I went riding and made the decision that if I didn't get hurt I'd stop by on the way home and buy the bike. We left the track and called the dealer to make ... more »

I've heard good stuff about them. Anyone else want to vouch for/against them?

Added reply in a thread Advice on crank rebuild: truing vs balancing vs new OEM 6/27/2020 2:45 PM

Would you spend the extra $$$ for balancing or just go with a basic rebuild? Living out here in the wilds of NM, I'm not dropping it off anywhere except with my UPS man.

I'm 58, 5' 6", and currently 155 lbs. I've been as high as 180 lb. At that weight, I could ride a bicycle for as long as I wanted and had good recovery during MX but couldn't do 2 laps at speed- I'd get tired FAST and recover fast. I couldn't do sprints ... more »

The best Carne Adovada I've ever eaten is at the Shell station in Pecos. You can't order directly. You have to tell the gas station attendant and she yells it back to the cook lady. If you try to talk to the cook directly they give you the chancla look.
