Reply to 2011 KTM 350 XCF value 11/21/2020 3:32 PM

For perspective, a 2011 350 is about on par in performance with a current gen 250f... Look for a 2013+ if you want 350f performance closer to what currently offered...

Reply to "Cooper Webb was told he could never ride a stock Yamaha" - Mike Sleeter 11/21/2020 3:26 PM

Likely it's never been the bike in the last few years. Barcia did as much on the Yamaha as he did on the Hondas and Suzuki. And he'll probably do the same on the GasGas too. He's talent, but not the likes of Webb, Roczen, Tomac, Anderson or Dungey/Poto ... more »

Reply to XCF 350 suspension to FX 350 ??? 11/11/2020 7:20 PM

Yes. The 21 has shorter suspension, so you have to adjust accordingly in the triple clamps, but it will be a direct swap...

MX-Tech Natty Shock will be good for a 1lb or so, another 2lbs with their Lucky Kit

Locally in my area, yes... But we're on opposite sides of the country.. In the spring time hit me up and I'll send you my Natty Shock for a month to ride with.

Pull injector... With a 9v, take a couple wires and build a set of pigtails that you can attach to the injector. When touched, the injector will open, back flush with air and contact cleaner... Check all sensors and connections too.

I've done BPC 157 with minor tears and strains. Worth every penny. No experience with PRP.

Kris Foster shows up occasionally to some of our local races. He's fast and under all the right conditions is a top 10 guy on the Pro line. Conditioning and poor mistakes like running out of fuel have kept him from getting any better in results. Likely ... more »

I don't endorse a high rep gym protocol. And I wouldn't because like you said, it's a waste of time. Nor do I prescribe a 4x a week gym routine either. I agree with your original statement, but instead of just 1 day a week I would do 2. For most, it's ... more »

Maybe at some higher elite level that would be true, but with a relatively new beginner, virtually any kind of strength training is going to be beneficial on the bike. Saying it's a waste of time, not even close to being accurate...

Front squats are awesome as they put more emphasis on your quads, back squats put more emphasis on your glutes. It is very difficult it gain both strength/size AND increase aerobic endurance... Aerobic endurance can be built fairly quickly (depending ... more »

Wut? Weights for sure will increase both muscle strength and muscular endurance... Aerobic endurance too, just to a lesser degree...

Kids heal considerably faster then adults. That being said, you are DAD, and generally what you feel is best is going to be the best outcome. A doctor will offer you guidelines, not absolutes so do what you feel is responsible and right. Ultimately listening ... more »

Took me nearly 60hrs to learn how to ride a 350 correctly... My recommendation is to work with a suspension guy (or someone knowledgeable) that can help you with setting up the chassis/suspension... I find setting the 350 up more like a 250f is more ... more »
