My Dad gave me this with some other old memorabilia. I'm not sure who the #11 autograph is from.

I've ridden with them and should do a better job about wearing them... but I really hate how little I can hear the riders around me when we're battling.

I grew up using FFT or Twin Air oil for years. We would throw the filters in the Safety Kleen prts washer and let them air dry. The. I switched to using mineral spirits. Both worked OK. Finally switched to No Toil and I won't go back. So convenient to ... more »

Allen socket on an extension? If it's still misaligned use a wobbler extension or u-joint?

Clutch is definitely slipping and heating it up. It's not a coolant system issue. I'd make sure your master cylinder bleed port is working ok. If the port doesn't open when your finger is off the clutch, as the fluid heats up and expands it will push ... more »

Hot cams sells a kit, or you can calculate what size shim you need and swap your shim for the correct one at the dealer. Eh I wouldn't push it too far. As lash increases the forces on the valve increase drastically.

Holy shit that was ugly. The pro track was sick to ride, but man they did not do a good job with track prep. They let it get way too hard and then watered on top which just made it a total ice skating rink. I think they try to avoid ruts to make the ... more »

You can cherry pick a photo of any exhaust with some tire rub, but I don't see any evidence that it is causing failures. I don't have any experience with the Yoshi pipes, but I'd guess that pipe got pushed in and the tab bent in a crash. My FMF and my ... more »

Mine didn't move until 120 hrs. One exh valve was 0.02 out of spec. You can adjust them without pulling the cams which is sweet, just pull the finger pivot rod out of the head, grab the finger with a telescoping magnet and swap out the shim. Also the ... more »

No, you're flat out wrong on that theory. The subframe is flexing under your ass while you're riding. That compliance is tuned into the bike for comfort. The stock muffler is rubber mounted so that the muffler mount isn't yanked around every time the ... more »

Ugh, horrible to hear. First off I hope Mike has a full and speedy recovery - and secondly hopefully the person who did this is brought to justice.

Didn't see it at the track, but this dude was driving around with a YZ250F in the back seat of his convertible Sebring fully assembled, with the front wheel hanging over the passenger door! I had to pull a U-turn to snap a pic haha.
