That's awesome! I've also raced Weston a few times and always chatted with mates about how cool it would be to have a go on a side car.... fair play for actually making it happen. Between a bike, quad and sidecar, the sidecar looks by far the hardest ... more »

Pull the clutch pack out and remove the 2 'judder' springs that are at the base of the pack by the clutch basket. This will drastically reduce clutch drag and improve the feel of the bite point.

There should be markings just underneath the bottom needle clip groove. An NEDH needle is stock for that model RM, in clip 4 from the top.

Black spooge out the power valve vent pipe. Jetting maybe a tad rich, or due a top end refresh, but generally nothing to worry about.

I'm 26 and wear one all the time. Always have. I don't crank it up super tight but enough to provide some support. Personally I just like the fact it fills the void between my pant waist line and bottom of my TLD chest protector. I wear a TLD kidney ... more »

Added reply in a thread What's the deal with fork sag? 10/10/2018 1:33 AM

There are some good suspension guys on this forum, so hopefully they will chime in. But to get the ball rolling, I think the main issue with fork sag is to do with the amount of friction in the forks. They do not move as freely and accurately under smaller ... more »

That silencer is no joke the same size as the FMF Q Pipe I use on my RM250 for enduros. It makes it super quiet and kills the power off a bit too. Why FMF gave him a silencer like that for this event is beyond me. Awesome pic though!

Tomac and Barcia, although utterly fantastic riders, have had a few too many bad MXoN's now. I cant see how they will be fired up for the event after the run they've had over the past few years, and I cant blame them. I think team USA will need a fresh ... more »

If you aren't in a rush and willing to wait till mid 2019 latest then maybe do that. I purchased my 15 RMZ450, in May 2015. It had been owned by some total beginner who decided the bike was too much for him after a few rides. I paid £4500 for it and ... more »
