If it starts easy and runs fine you're good to go.

Bloody he'll dude, the Aussie dollar is garbage at the moment why would you need to buy anything from the US with the terrible exchange rates and postage it's hardly worth the trouble. I usedd to buy from RM all the time when the Aussie dollar was close ... more »

Reply to PulpMX vs Whiskey Throttle 5/5/2020 9:12 PM

I work in a job that requires me to wear earmuffs all day, so it's perfect for listening to pod casts, I never miss a Pulp show pod, I love the variety of Pulp Its got a bit of everything. With the Whiskey Throttle I pick and choose depending on the ... more »

Reply to Suzuki has let go of the R&D department 5/1/2020 6:11 AM

Dude I wouldn't waste your breath, most of these guys with the negative comments about the Suzuki are the sort of guys that spend big bucks on their shootout winning bikes then they add all the bling and a pipe and proceed to ride around at half throttle ... more »

Reply to radiator overflow hose has smoke coming out of it 4/16/2020 5:15 AM

Smoke? As in steam? Clear liquid? As in water? Sounds like your radiator has water in it instead of coolant and it boiled. These bikes don't like to sit there and idle for to long, they need air flowing through the radiator to keep them cool. Don't warm ... more »

Reply to Could we lose JGR? 3/10/2020 1:05 PM

JGR has never had a bike that would attract a true championship rider.  They had James Stewart.

Reply to To the Cooper Webb "dislike" club 2/24/2020 7:11 PM

I don't understand people hating on riders, I can understand not being a fan but to actually hate some guy that you've never even met and he's never actually done anything to you personally. I don't get it.

Reply to Neck braces 2/19/2020 12:05 PM

I wouldn't wear one for the simple fact that every person who wears one is pretty quick to point out that they had a crash and if it wasn't for their neck brace they would be dead or paralysed. Seems for some reason everyone who wears one has massive ... more »

Reply to What bike should my old, fat a** buy? 2/16/2020 1:04 PM

I don't mean to hijack this thread at all, but I just got hold of an 19 Rmz 450, I haven't even ridden it yet but I've been reading a lot about changing the stock linkage arm for an after market and apparently it completely transforms the whole handling ... more »

Reply to Reedy & Friend... 2/16/2020 12:12 PM

Prediction. The last round you see Reed, RC and James on the track at the same time for the last time in some sort of exhibition as a farewell to all the fans and an end to one of the greatest era's in racing.

Reply to 2019 rmz450 worth it? 1/14/2020 7:42 PM

Unless you're a pro or running up the front in A grade, a Suzuki will be just fine, very few people get everything out of a 450 anyway. Just go watch at your local track or ride park and check out the guys on their YZ's and CRF's and watch them ride ... more »

Reply to Bernard Kerr: World Cup DH racer wants to race SX 1/8/2020 8:22 PM

Having just listened to them talk about this on Pulp, I can't believe Mathes compared this mountain bike guy to Luke Clout, the same Luke Clout that was an Australian factory Yamaha rider, the same guy who just lost the Australian supercross title to ... more »

Reply to Old school air filter oiling. 11/27/2019 3:29 AM

Old school? That's the way I've always done it, guess I'm old school. I just pour the oil on the filter, massage it through make sure there are no dry spots, squeeze out the excess. I just thought everyone did it that way still.

Reply to What happened here? 11/26/2019 2:42 AM

Sometimes you can just be 12 inches of your usual line and hit a kicker you're not ready for and it kicks you in the arse, it happens.

Reply to Mystery part fell out during oil change 11/17/2019 12:22 PM

Yes they are necessary, they keep the case lined up perfect, if you are super desperate to go for a ride you could probably get away with it, but I would certainly be ordering a new one. I'm presuming the other pin is still there so that helps.
