My son had a set on his 350, really liked them. Plush with good bottoming resistance. At 130 pounds he's really sensitive to how a bike feels on stutter bumps (not enough lead in his ass to keep the bike planted!). He said they weren't amazing, but were ... more »

So if I can find a tree that's grafted like the one in the picture, that counts as two trees from a pollination perspective? Just making sure I read that correctly.

So can I buy or plant something like a Cameo apple tree in the CA central valley and have it grow properly, or is this area too hot for apples? We're going to redo the back yard, and I figure if I'm paying to water a bunch of plants, I'd rather get something ... more »

My buddy picked up a Suzuki LTZ400 quad for his girlfriend, ran great until one day he found it would only run for about 2 minutes and then die. Wait 10 minutes or so and it was good to go- for another minute. Go through the usual suspects- carb, check ... more »

If you changed the oil religiously and used 5/30 instead of 5/20, the cam phasers were usually bulletproof. With the exception of the full retard plug design, it was actually a very long-lived engine.

Sears Point, 1980. At 9 years old, I really liked riding my Mini Enduro, but I didn't know a damn thing about dirtbikes. During the first 125 moto, I decided I liked the red bikes and not the yellow ones. So whenever the leader on the yellow bike would ... more »

Just sold a 03 KX125 for that. Admittedly it was very nice- painted frame, new tires, plastic, seat cover, all bearings, grips, levers, cables, etc, etc. Upgraded brake, Rad Valve. Rebuilt shock and forks. Frankly I could have gotten more for it, had ... more »

Added reply in a thread YZ250 shift detent 5/18/2020 9:18 PM

I'm going to assume that's a pre 99 YZ250. Here are a couple pictures from a 04 (99+ is the same), maybe it helps. If it is a 99+, upgrade to the newest shift stopper with a solid roller to avoid the bearing equipped one from ever coming apart and grenading

Added reply in a thread 06 or newer yz125 owners? 5/13/2020 9:46 AM

05/06 had a different stator and CDI. The difference was the length of the wires, so the connector ended up being positioned higher up on the 07+ bikes.
