It's rediculous, and they're long. I don't monetize my personal videos and have no plan to because I don't like making people watch BS ads before they watch them, yet Vital finds it perfectly alright to stick their own stupid ad onto them if I post any ... more »

For an extremely vulnerable part like this I have my doubts about being able to print something strong enough. I may just take another posters advice and buy the bulletproof mount, I didn’t realize at first that they made a YZ version so that would be ... more »

If that their line of thinking then someone needs to have their head examined. One of the times I had this happen was at an EX race (yes I understand that’s a little tougher on them than a moto track, the issue is the lack of thought and effort here), ... more »

This is exactly my setup, give a much better video and perspective than mounting in the top of the helmet. I’m not really convinced that the gopro is causing any injuries since the mounts break away relatively easily, but a simple improvement would be ... more »

Thanks to everyone who responded with something productive, very much appreciated (or much ty so everyone thinks I'm a paid poster). Here is the plan: - I ordered a new (used in good condition) yzf swingarm off ebay, should be here in a few days. - Upon ... more »

Not on this bike, I keep it stock length and just run a 50T in the back, I'll change the front between a 13 and a 14 depending on where/what I'm riding. I can design up a better mount no problem, but I have a couple of concerns: 1. Lining up the guide ... more »

No, I just run a standard chain, I don't really like the O-rings just because of the added drag. This failure was from impact over time, it didn't happen in a rocky section or anything which tells me that it's been brewing for a bit, then finally let ... more »

Whatever planet you're living on I would love to experience

1. I run aftermarket chain guides because they are a lot more forgiving then stock, and will tend to slide over a rock or rut rather than dig into it like the aluminum stock guides. ... more »

I'm about 100% sure I am not the only person this has happened to. And regardless, the fact remains that their mounting setup leaves a lot to be desired to say the least. Just welding the damn thing one one side, and not even using the entire available ... more »

I want to know how, in the infinite wisdom present withing the engineering departments of the collective big 4 japanese motorcycle manufacturers, they continue to believe that their chain guide mounting designs are adequate. Somehow to me, a person of

How cool is that? If you didn't know who they were that picture could be taken at pretty much any track on any given weekend, the best conversations happen between campers/trucks.

Two things to add that may be of interest: 1. I’m working in getting a Moto 9 to measure up and create a part file for, so hopefully within the next couple weeks I’ll have a design and some parts available for anyone who wants them through 3DP Moto. ... more »

I think it has to do with the social media echo chamber. It’s really a bit scary when you consider the ramifications and long term effects, the algorithms determine what you’re most likely to be interested by (aka, things you believe in and agree with), ... more »

Gibby - Thanks! Ted- The only difference in how I approached the track between the two bikes was the curving rhythm section after the triple. I just couldn't get the same rhythm that I was doing on the 250 when I was on the 125, but now that I watch
