Every week, cross jumps, rides the race line then changes mid-corner and messes up.

Always had other bikes. Hence why it just lay there. glad it started up more or less straight away. Looking forward to having a play on it next week. Got a few parts on their way to finish it up. Hopefully the old school Castrol graphics I had made 8 ... more »

A bit of background to the bike. Bought new early 08. Broke the centre cases about a month later from landing short on a reasonable sized double (reckon there was a stone sticking out) , ran the bike dry and complete chewed up the inside. Don't have ... more »

Added reply in a thread Taking time off from work/life to ride.. 8/12/2020 12:39 AM

I found the balance another way, by working away from home I get even time off. During that time I spend every other day on a bike of some kind. Even with a family (teenagers) it works well for me. I just make sure when I go out through the week I do ... more »

Added reply in a thread Built Yz125 vs built Ktm 125 7/20/2020 10:22 PM

Spot on buddy. So many people could be doing with a suspension seminar and some riding schools instead of blowing a ton of money. I always hear that a fork sucks when it can be a simple 1/4 turn on a high speed compression adjuster on a shock to completely ... more »

Added reply in a thread Speed gap between c class to b class to a class 7/19/2020 5:51 PM

Strange how times change. Not so long ago (10-15 years) everyone was trying their hardest to get into the next class. That was also in the days of genuine practice/qualifying and 25-40 rider gates. If I qualified in B's and was in my mind about an A ... more »

Added reply in a thread First Time Bike Buyer: 250f vs 450 7/16/2020 4:47 PM

250f all the way. YZF/CRF/KTM/HUS. Any of them are great bikes and don't need much if any work to be competitive at intermediate level. As for the lugability so to speak at the lower RPM's. A simple 1 tooth on the rear or 2 will sort that out and give ... more »

Added reply in a thread Basic suspension help 7/13/2020 6:08 PM

Different offsets do effect a bikes bias a fair bit. If it has been valved properly for choppy offroad, the HS compression and Rebound stacks will be lighter giving it a busier put plusher feel. The low speed compression stack will also be a little plusher ... more »

Have a look at 2 stroke performance in Australia. Dave has some excellent results for relatively cheap money. Like 4-5hp in the lower mid range.I think he has just added a US distributor and a UK one to boot. Anyway, might give you enough power to still ... more »

Added reply in a thread Factory GAS GAS 6/24/2020 1:14 AM

Local dealer is saying that Gasgas will be the lower end brand of the KTM group. I think the price line will be on Par with the big Japanese 3. I am thinking that they might do more run out models via gasgas. Good way to scrape another year out of a ... more »

Intermittent fasting on a clean diet. Try going 2 days a week plant based / lower calorie (sub 1200). This will naturally drop you 2-4lbs a week for the first 6-8 weeks. In that time concentrate on a base fitness plan. Body weight/kettlebell style stuff ... more »

Loving it DV. I can't wait to see this one finished. It reminds me how much I hated racing against YZ's from 96. My KX's at the time just could not keep up. Eventually went YZ250 in 01 through to 05. Yamaha woke the 125 class right up from 96-04 with ... more »
