Added reply in a thread Modern 450s really gnarly? 12/23/2020 7:04 AM

Air forks work good for bigger guys. I was probably around 210 at my heaviest on the ‘16 KX 450 and had no complaints really other than a little harshness at the top of the stroke. They are excellent for bottoming resistance. I wouldn’t let that hold ... more »

Got my 21 KX 450 for 9000 out the door at the end of July. I do not think you will regret going with the Kawasaki. It’s an excellent bike. Like others have mentioned, fork springs and some bar mounts is all you really need. The rear brake is touchy. ... more »

Just saying they seem to be a weak point compared to the other offerings.

People are bending forks on the latest gen left and right.

Check cycletrader.com. Not sure where in LA you are, but Hall's Motorsports advertises $6,599 for a '20 RMZ and $6,199 for a '19.

See American Superbike for what happens when you don’t play nice with the mfg’s.

Added reply in a thread Alpinestars Tech 7's vs Tech 10's 11/24/2020 8:22 AM

I got 10 hours out of my ‘21 tech 10s. They now installed V1 soles as it’s all they had and they are more durable than the V2 from what I was told. I can’t see how they could be any less durable with how fast the V2 wore out.

Added reply in a thread How much to ride? 11/17/2020 9:41 AM

$20-$30 everywhere in Wisconsin. I think Motovation MX might be $40. I'll usually throw an extra $5-$10 at the practice only tracks that I know the owners well to help make it worth their while.

They are far from the same rider. A simple look at past results is all that's needed to change that theory. Not sure why everybody loves to hate Joey, but he's had a very solid career as a frontrunner. Bloss on the other hand has not done much other ... more »

You should retire from Vital. Wishing retirement on him is pathetic.

Done it numerous times already. There are no sole inserts available anywhere that I can find in a size 13/14 except Alpinestars who I am going to have resole my boots. And to those who keep saying that foot positioning will make the soles last longer, ... more »

I’ll try to work on it! Going to be difficult to change the way I ride after 30+ years. I don’t know how tall you are, but trying to get my feet further back on the pegs when I go from sitting to standing is difficult. Perhaps a slightly taller seat ... more »

They didn’t say anything about that. I also fail to see the logic in that. If I position my feet differently, they will wear out in a different spot. The only thing they said was that the soles wear out faster due to the size of my feet to which I say, ... more »

I was told $100 and $120 by two different people at Alpinestars. Like I said in another post, they did offer to replace the soles for $50 which is my only option as the size 13/14 sole inserts are sold out everywhere I’ve looked.

Thanks for the feedback. The tech 10 has a large toebox especially in a size 13. Maybe that has something to do with the accelerated wear from having to maneuver my foot so much to shift.

Added reply in a thread Lend me your thoughts - My 2021 Tech 10’s 10/14/2020 11:09 AM

Totally agree. I'm a middle class at best single home owner. "Dirt bike poor" as my dad would say. This is my first new pair of boots in at least five years and it's been quite a let down.
