If available, I'd buy a few sets of plastic for my 1980 yz50 and 1981 yz60 (since both use the same bodywork). The 60 was my first motorcycle, which I'm in the process of restoring. I have a few ideas for something different to do with the 50 (have two ... more »

I've been running the tubliss for a couple months now. Once you get the procedure down, tire changes are easier than with a standard tube-type setup. I wanted to check for a weight difference, but I installed mine on brand new aftermarket wheels with ... more »

Yeah, some people will jump huge stuff on a trials bike. However, this is a VERY small percentage. The bikes are not engineered for this type of abuse... it wouldn't take long before something breaks. For instance, look for the Julien Dupont video where ... more »

An expansion chamber isn't needed, because these things are tuned for an insane amount of tractable, bottom end grunt.

For that type of track, a trials bike wouldn't be as fun or practical as a minibike would be.

Dubach must be on crack... no motovan or box van compares to a Sprinter. Mine is the 5 cylinder 3500, (dually), and it gets 20mpg on the highway as long as you keep it below 75mph. A couple of friends with 2500s are reporting about 24mpg highway. Aside ... more »

that trials video game makes my brain hurt. literally.

As a trials rider myself, the rear fender looks a bit odd... it appears to stick up WAY too high, which would hinder your ability to lean far back and low. The decision to run upside down forks is a bit odd, too. That is a cool looking bike, though... ... more »

Once upon a time, the TSR track was really fun. It had a good layout for all abilities, good dirt and lighting. There have been a few different people in charge of the track prep, and IMO only one of them did a superb job. When the 5 magics people came ... more »

Bingo. Once you try a 90/100-21, you realize the 20" front is obsolete.
