Shue, any chance you have the jetting you used for the stock carb written down?

Matthes is brilliant in the way he fabricates these scenarios, and gets so many of his listeners all fired up about them. Same with how he stokes the fire on a weekly basis by critiquing Darkside’s performance on the wrap up show.

Factory One is the US team that’s based out of Texas... pretty sure Coleman is riding for the Australian importer.

Pro Circuit claims they will be doing a production run of Works pipes for these bikes soon. They were supposed to be out by now. If you’re interested in one, best thing to do is call PC and give them your information. That way yours is spoken for, as ... more »

I don’t remember seeing people on the internet talk about aluminum YZ250 frames being harsh until Chad Reed mentioned it in an interview.

A couple years ago. I bought several sets of NXT gear from them when they ended up with everything that was in the Tucker Rocky warehouses, because the price was so CHEEEEEEAP. Couldn’t pass it up. I’ve worn MSR gear since 1995, and the fit of this last ... more »

I’m very happy with the tank I got, especially for the price! Fits great. They can do pretty much anything you wanna do, so see if they will work with you if the pics you see aren’t quite what you want. I was told mine would take two weeks to manufacture, ... more »

Pretty sure the guy on Vital who’s opening the moto restaurant in DFW (can’t remember his name at the moment, The Reality of Speed guy) has/had the Tornado in his collection. Hopefully he will chime in here and post some pics.
