Added reply in a thread About that 125 Homoligation Rule.... 5/22/2019 3:03 PM

Since there bending rules, I wonder if a privateer racing the 250 or 450 class would be allowed to race the 125 class too (providing his team/sponsors ok it)? If I read the rules right this is not allowable but it could bring in some "gooder" riders

You forgot the part where they sold their products into foreign markets below their cost of production. Its how the US lost the flat panel LCD market.

My 1980 YZ250 has a chrome moly steel frame, I think this was the first year the Japanese manufacturers went to CrMo on their production motocross bikes.

Added reply in a thread What handlebar was AC running last night? 5/6/2019 7:58 AM

With the cross bar the center section of the bars is rigid and not as susceptible to bending loads. This in turn causes an impact at the end of the bars to transmit more of its energy to the point just outboard of the cross bar and cause it to bend there. ... more »

It’s one them things like you plug into your car and your insurer can monitor your driving to get you to develop safe driving habits. I didn’t know Geico had those but I’ve seen ads for similar units from Progressive and Liberty Mutual.
