Right... "Demonized". Probably something to do with the writer/director having a LONG history of being discredited. For every one of these BS conspiracy theory documentaries with questionable conflicts of interest, there's 100 studies that disprove them. ... more »

I don't think we are there yet (knowing the effectiveness and if mutations will warrant yearly updates similar to how the flu vaccine works).

I'm honestly curious as to how you came to the understanding that "crap" is injected into your body? Do you understand how vaccines work? No, I am not trying to berate you. I'll probably get it because I am frequently around family that is older. Just ... more »

Added reply in a thread YZ250 frame compatibility 7/30/2020 11:31 PM

'99 and up. I think there is a little modification needed where the swingarm bolt mounts through if the engine came from a steel frame version. Not 100% sure.

They work great! Been on my YZ for 2 years. Zero issues.

Well I was only speaking of the 250. The YZ125 is having somewhat the opposite problem. The chassis is generally well liked and regarded as not feeling as outdated as it should. It handles and turns very well. The engine however needs a major update ... more »

How many races until Tickle and Barcia are fighting in the pits?

Added reply in a thread KTM 250sx 7/28/2020 2:27 PM

I feel like if Yamaha wanted to do the bare minimum for an update, they could tweak the frame geometry for sharper handling and change up the swingarm (align it with 250f or 450f), which all can potentially shave a couple pounds off as well. Also, perhaps ... more »

Curious on how AER handles heavy chop/bumps/whoops etc compared to KYB SSS. My understanding was that was always the big KYB advantage. My next bike may very well be of Austrian make... But if the front feels harsh in those real world rough conditions, ... more »

Added reply in a thread VP T2...can you add oil to make it 32:1? 7/28/2020 1:12 PM

Plugs fouling, running dirty/smokey is from bad jetting. That's it. There's no mystery here. Pick a ratio for your riding style and jet accordingly. My YZ250 @ 32:1 will idle all day and runs super crisp. This is always a good discussion.

Haha good thing you're here to check me. Definitely did not remember that. Makes me wonder why Yamaha doesn't just change over to the 4 stroke front plastic already. Maybe 2022 they'll clean up the body again and unify it a bit.

I can tell you that the both the front plate and front fender bolt right on to a 2016 . Not sure if the clamps on the YZ were different the few years prior to that, but I doubt it. YZ450F front fender and plate (Cycra stadium):

The point I was trying to make was more that the sport evolved to where it needs parity to remain exciting. Think about the personalities in the 80s and 90s... A lot of guys were BIG characters. There's very little of that now. There's nothing wrong ... more »

When's the last time any of these top guys had fun riding? McGrath's dominance worked in the 90s into 2000 because he had all that flair and "coolness" to go with it. Not to mention the Terrafirma and Steel Roots free ride videos. The last thing I want ... more »
