We didn’t put huge hours on hers but it seemed fine. They really are cool and I wish I had one. I used to ride it quite a bit even though it’s not recommended but it’s too hard to resist. They even look like they make taller bars for kids who look to ... more »

IMO if your kid is 3 you could also run down to a Stacyc dealer and grab a 16” bike for $600. There are a lot of kids of all speeds and sizes who love those things and he will progress much faster than throwing him on a clapped out PW with training wheels. ... more »

Added reply in a thread The garage door problem 7/31/2020 8:16 PM

Some have a “lock” feature where the garage door can only be used by the button inside the garage and it will disable the remotes. My wife and I have an agreement where we do not use the garage door regularly. Some also have a bar lock with a padlock ... more »

Added reply in a thread Ktm XC kickstand removed, what to fill hole with? 7/29/2020 9:52 AM

I found a plain bolt in a bolt kit and I put a small washer on it since the threads were two threads longer than the stand bolt. I measured it and I don’t think the bolt is long enough to bottom the threads but I put some medium loctite and hopefully ... more »

Just looked those up they look perfect and I’ve seen them at the hardware store before. Thanks for the tip

Bike looks great. Quick question, if you removed your kickstand, did you fill the hole with the stock bolt or anything or just leave it empty with the bare threads? I want to remove my stand but don’t know what to fill the mounting hole with.

Started new thread Ktm XC kickstand removed, what to fill hole with? 7/28/2020 10:44 PM

Took my kickstand off to ride Mx with my 250xc. Question is the hole that the stand bolts into should be filled so it doesn’t get packed with dirt and rust. I’ve hand tightened the bolt from the stand into the hole but it looks like a tapered/shoulder ... more »

I had a 2013 yz then a 2014 250sx then a 2017 yz and now a 2020 250xc tpi. I guess I would call myself a Mx guy who likes riding in the woods as well. I’ve been breaking that tpi in at our local Mx track and I can’t get enough of that thing. Few tweaks ... more »

I was at southwick a few years ago watching him battle roczen and I’ll say that no one can ride a bike as hard as tomac. I was on the side of the track and you could feel it in the ground you were standing on how hard he was hitting everything. It was ... more »

Added reply in a thread First Time Bike Buyer: 250f vs 450 7/17/2020 8:18 PM

I’ve been riding a racing 250 2t for the last 10 years or so. Had a 350 as well for awhile. Rode my buddies 2020 450SXF a few weeks ago and man that thing was a freight train. It just had so much inertia and obviously felt a lot heavier than my 250 but ... more »

I think I heard Kris Keefer say on his bar bend podcast that he always recommends putting a small bar riser instead of going with a taller bar. I tend to agree personally

Wow that thing looks pretty sweet. I bet it would be perfect for an at the track wash. I know when we lived in a condo in Texas, finding a place to wash my bike was a pain. The car washes weren’t great because I felt like that water was really tough ... more »

Did you run your PV adjuster out as well? How’s it run?

No pipe yet but that’s an option for when some funds open up. Do you think you pipe and the PV adjustment compounded the lean feeling of the bike? From what I read the bikes could use some more fuel even stock but I have no idea. Only have 2 hrs on mine ... more »

I’ve been doing some reading on the JD Jetting tuner that they offer. Seems like you can richen or lean out multiple circuits with their deal. From the bit I read it gets good reviews I’m going to look into it more. Definitely could use more top end

Added reply in a thread 2020 250 XC TPI Moto conversion 7/13/2020 1:06 PM

Does the PV adjustment change the feeling of the jetting at all? I rode my 250 on the Mx track two weeks ago and it was very flat on top
