I am 100% in favor of the button, because I'm old, short, and creaky knees....however.... in September I raced the High Point Vet National and on Saturday they have a dead-engine GP race where you start in rows. In the morning session where it was a ... more »

I had that happen to an older RM I was restoring. I properly ground the peening off, but on removal the threads simply crumbled off the shaft. I took it to a machine shop and they fixed it up no problem, looked better than new.

I had season passes to Rays for about 5 years before more shoulder injuries kept me away. Super fun, we used to have a regular Wed night ride group with about a dozen MX'ers. I had a Mongoose EC-X Eric Carter bike, loved it. Wish I didn't sell it!

When is Suzuki going to put electric start on it? That is my only complaint. 30 years of racing on my knees = do not like kickstart

Added reply in a thread AC9 BFRC 1/13/2020 10:33 AM

Actually the opposite. The knock on the shock was it couldn't handle SX tracks. It seems strange to me that a manufacturer (Kaw) continues to use it previously with Savatgy and now with AC, but the factory team of the manufacturer that puts the shock ... more »

Yeah, one was a friends. I have actually restored mine twice. Full racer restore, then put 5 seasons of chasing AHRMA and AMA vintage races, then restored it again. The second restore I did my friends bike at the same time for him. His is in the foreground ... more »

I wonder if the JGR 450 guys are using the BFRC shock? I have not found a closeup pic of the JGR 450s to see if they are using it or not. I know HEP uses Ohlins suspension so obviously they do not. Kawasaki has been testing with the BFRC going all the ... more »

Here are a couple 84 RM250 frames I had done. Ignore the shock springs as those are aftermarket and did not have them coated.

I've used RAL 5017 Traffic Blue for all my powdercoating.

Glad you "rescued" it instead of it getting found by someone just looking to take it to the scrap yard!

It's a 450 and probably actually an RMX450, or at least the motor/cases. But yes that is electric start -- RMX450 has had electric start since 2010.

A couple years ago someone was selling NOS Oneal Bullet Boots in the box at Mid Ohio Vintage Days. They had like a dozen sets and I picked up a pair for I think $35.
