I also suffer with migraines. I never, ever leave home without at least a couple of Naramig (Naratriptan) with me. Pretty effective and safe medicine. At the smallest hint of a migraine, I take one. Usually holds the pain under control, and I can function ... more »

Love those Acerbis handguards. The blue one on the photo you posted is mine. I was fortunate enough to find a few of them a while ago. All NOS. I also have a collection of frond disc covers and fenders. Here's the uncut pic.

"I just can’t help but feel a little silly riding a 25 year old bike out on a track fillled with Pro’s and modern bike?" I feel exactly the opposite. As long as you have (and you do) an awesome (or just decent) vintage bike, you will pretty much be the ... more »

Good article about improving the '87 KX forks. Not really useful, because of the impossibility to find such a kit nowadays(I think). Anyways:

Awesome videos. Watched them all in just a couple of days. And like someone above said, they are really inspirational. Well done, both the restoration and the videos. And owning (and having restored it myself) a WR500, I can't wait for your WR videos. ... more »

From what I saw, there isn't an English version of their website, and they won't ship internationally either from their Brazilian website.

To clean steel hardware, just soak them in apple cider vinegar for a couple of days. Do not use this method to clean aluminum and especially, magnesium, as the vinegar will corrode them.

Added reply in a thread WANTED : NOS Acerbis green/white handguards 5/3/2017 12:54 AM

Just to tease ya (they are not for sale), besides the one I have on my WR500 (pictured on your original post), I believe I have 5 or 6 of them (including the one on the WR, which has the black Acerbis logo) that will eventually be used on my other bikes.

Good idea. Will do that about finding the correct scale of the logo and then measuring it. About the Pit Replica cover, I'm aware of them. It's just that since I already bought some good quality blue vinyl for another project, I tought about doing the ... more »

Needing some help here... Can anyone that has a '87 KX, with the original (or a correct replica) seat cover, please take the measurements highlighted in red? I'm making a stencil for my seat, and I'm trying to make it as correct as possible.

Apart from the bikes values, which I don't care much as I don't own them as investments, the "once I'm dead" part has been on my mind lately. I have 4 garage queens here that I don't ride. Sometimes I think I should just ride them and not care too much ... more »
