Look for closeout deals online and at your local dealership for gear (along with a good, used bike). Used gear, except the helmet in most cases, can often be found on Craigslist, OfferUp, LetGo and Facebook Marketplace for pennies on the dollar compared ... more »

Central Ca. Except for a hundred or so gallons of water being sloshed out of the pool, no effect for me. If CA gets hit by a big one, it's going to be ugly. This state is anything but prepared for a real disaster.

Great advice from all. I get some dry ice from the local supermarket and set the bearings in there before dropping them into the heated case halves. -109F shrinks the metal a little more than a freezer set around 10F.

As long as it hasn't contacted other items (swingarm, knuckle, shock body, etc) then it'll be fine.

You're using strong bait, but I think your cast ran a bit short.

Started new thread Justin Cooper $40,000 for main win? 6/26/2019 12:24 PM

Pretty sure the $40,000 shown at the 6:30 mark on Cooper's pit board indicates his win bonus of 40K Given the secretive nature of MX, it's interesting to get a small glimpse into the current financial side of it.

Then it's likely the spacer or bearings has rusted to the bolt. You need a bigger hammer.

You like the profile of the OEM 19 KX450 brake lever? Funny, it's squared off feel is the only thing about my friend's 19 KX450 I dislike. Otherwise it's a great bike.

I used them for years when my son was racing RM85's. They're higher capacity than the OEM rads and use much thicker aluminum. However, they somehow sourced out aluminum that's only slightly harder to bend than a sheet of paper, some really soft material ... more »

We were going so much slower and didn't come off the ground anywhere near as much as we do today. My dad's 75 MX250 would likely have bent the forks on a 4' drop off. I remember launching over a couple apple trees on my 80 RM400 and everyone being amazed ... more »
