I think that was Adrian who was shitting on non-Engineers. Go listen again. He known for doing that...and Don has specifically called him out in the past for doing so.

I just listened to this tonight, and it was painful and awkward. Out of the gate, I am an Engineer, by education, and vocation. I worked directly as an Engineer in industry (engineered rotating machinery) for 6 years, before moving into technical sales ... more »

Eli just did not have speed / fitness to get past Barcia. So it was not "caution" for Eli. He just was not capable. Now Kenny...he CLEARLY had speed on both Eli and Barcia, but he was being cautious. As noted, he has to be leading points.

Eli looks neither fit nor hungry this year....

Exponential growth in a finite system has a way of sneaking up on you. Agree that we are not going to "kill mother earth". Strongly disagree that making it uninhabitable for humans is hard. It is very easy, and we are well on our way. And when we get ... more »

Exactly. I did not know that "have not showered in a week" was now a thing.

Sorry but if you put today's riders and bikes on those tracks, they would look like a joke too. The problem with this whole "tracks suck" thinking is that if you change them to make things more difficult, etc, SX will turn into even more of a meat grinder ... more »

Cycra.... But with a hit that hard...I dont think any plastic plate would do anything.

Added reply in a thread Bent Lower Frame - KX450 2/12/2021 12:46 AM

Not, it is not a hardware store nut and bolt. It is an alloy nut and bolt. Not a junk bolt just heat treated. The stock bolt was butter and necked torquing it to spec. I have taken the new hardware on and off 4-5 times in 50 hours, and it has never been ... more »

JT should come on here and recite his list of know Friese incidents. He would be typing all night.

That is an old story...but it has always had the ring of "truthiness" to it. I bet there are some people on here who can confirm the facts.

Added reply in a thread Bent Lower Frame - KX450 2/7/2021 10:34 PM

I removed the lower motor mounting bolt. It was not bound up at all, meaning the frame is not tweaked to the point of loading the motor. It's all good. Just a bummer though...

Added reply in a thread Barcia goes for Cianciarulo 2/7/2021 10:31 PM

It is not about Barca being dirty. It is about him being stupid. RC, Stew, Dungey, RV, Eli, Cooper, all those guys have shown the ability to come through the field without taking risks. To be a title threat, you have to minimize risks. Even Malcolm....he ... more »

10-4. I will remove the lower engine mounting bolts and let the motor hang from the front bolts / main pivot, and see if how the motor to frame fit up looks. I was sort of thinking that this are of the bike is pretty beefy because the engine and frame ... more »

Bummer. 2019 KX 450... took a hit riding off road...sheared off a footpeg mount. I replaced the foot peg mount, but never pulled the skid plate. Then while cleaning it today, I stripped the bike down, and found a major bend area in the lower frame.

And Barcia should be able to avoid risks and get around lappers without putting himself in a riksy position. Barcia just appears to have no concept of risk vs reward.

Added reply in a thread Barcia T-bone hit on Roczen 2/7/2021 1:13 AM

I will say it again. Barcia just does not have a title mindset. To win titles, you have to move forward, get podiums and wins WITHOUT TAKING BIG RISKS. Barcia simply does not know how to do that. KR said it years ago. He is not the sharpest knife in ... more »
