They probably request without gear as most people don't know their weight with gear. Then just add a predetermined amount. Gets even more convoluted when you add a hydration pack and tools. Drain a hydration pack and you got a 7-pound difference between ... more »

Added reply in a thread New to the desert...PSI recommendations? 11/22/2020 8:36 AM

I'd first start with Tire selection. The stock tires generally are great for Motocross or SX but are horrible in the desert. My 2012 WR450 came with Dunlop MX tires and they scared the shit out of me in the desert. The front would knife just looking ... more »

More weight might not be the best. Less weight and higher reps would probably be better as it simulates what your doing on the bike. I am 6'3" 170 and try and base my workouts around what I do on the bike. I usually do Goblet squats with a 25 lbs kettlebell. ... more »

You can use a chemical stripper. Sanding will probably damage the VIN. Google "How to remove powder coat" and some articles will come up with some chemical stripper recommendations.

A Sprinkler system would be a good permanent solution. A lot of upfront work and cost but would save you a lot of time in regards to routine track watering.

Part of the issue might not be your knees as much as it is how your quads have developed to compensate for your knees. Generally, your knees bowing out like that is a sign of a muscle imbalance between your inside quad and your outside quad muscles. ... more »

I have a quiet insert on a 2012 WR450. Obviously not an apples to apples comparison but close. It made a slight difference. Nothing major. I would say maybe 5db. More then anything it changes the tone. It removes a lot of the high end out of the sound ... more »

Seems like the two most common reason that Ti cracks according to my Google-Fu is cracks caused by corrosion or Sustained Load Cracking. I'd guess there is something putting pressure on that spot when your riding that is causing it. Maybe riding closer to the front ... more »

I'd check here: https://www.batteriesplus.com or give them a call. Also, you might take a look at WalMart for the "Power Wheels" batteries in the car section. I'd assume they'd use a battery around that size for the lift.

3M Safety-Walk Medium Resilient tape is what the pros like HRC Honda, Kawi, etc are using. You can get strips or sheets. Amazon has it for a pretty decent price. With weekly trail rides, I replace mine every other month or so. 3M Safety-Walk Medium
