Added reply in a thread Any advice from Michigan Vet Class motocross riders for older rider without much track experience? 9/26/2020 5:16 PM

D14 has a vet sport 25+ class which is essentialy an all novice vet class. There’s a few fast guys at the front but most of the class is laid back and there’s definitely some beginners that race it. At the end of the season they’re good about bumping ... more »

I grew up 20 minutes from Steel City. First year we ever went was 2001, my dad had heard about it and took us on a whim. I remember not realizing how big it was going to be, and having to park so far away and walk in from way past the main entrance sign. ... more »

Was my first time making it to vet fest and man what a perfect day. Track was rough but in a different way than the national amateur day gets and the turnout was great. Not quite as deep as the national but definitely more choppy. I can attest too that ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2 stroke jetting help (video included) 6/9/2020 10:05 AM

How does the plug look? Tough to say if it is the pilot or the needle but likely a combination of both. You are on the right track. I would start by dropping the needle (raising the clip) and trying that out while you wait for your smaller pilot jets. ... more »

Added reply in a thread When was the RM85 last updated? 6/9/2020 9:49 AM

I remember the 05 I had they updated the front and rear brakes from the 04 to go to Honda style routing, and changed the rear linkage (which I remember PR2 saying wasn't good so we used theirs instead). BNG since then.

Plug looks ok but definitely a bit of carbon build up. Time for a new one there for sure so i'll be changing that. Jetting i've ran the same jetting here for the last few years and have it pretty reliable. Was fine all of the last two seasons. Reeds ... more »

Hoping I can get some help here without having to start a new thread. I'm not sure if the powervalve is the problem or not. When I am riding my bike it's fine down low in corners and pulls a bit but as soon as i get on it in the middle of the rpm's it ... more »

Yeah unfortunately I understand. I grew up down the road from there and the last time I was near the track saw it was a complete field now. I miss that place.

Rebuild Steel City and have it there, close to the Pittsburgh Airport, and arguably the most spectator friendly track

Started new thread When to Replace a Crank KTM 150 12/19/2019 10:51 AM

Hey Guys, My 2017 KTM 150 is at just under 80 hours after 2.5 seasons and I'm wondering if I should be doing a crank and bearings soon? I did a top end at 30 and 55 hours each of the last off seasons and both looked great. I'm a fast C/slow B level rider, ... more »

Love XR-75s, grew up riding my dads all the time from when he was a kid. He restored his 73 which hangs in his garage, and we rode around on some 74 and 75s he got later on. My brother and I used to race around on them for hours. I’d love to get one ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why no EBV in MXGP...why no PED positives? 8/20/2019 10:01 AM

I would say it's more anti FIM because of WADA than being anti MXGP.

In addition to Joe's powervalve advise, putting an FMF fatty and powercore 2.1 silencer (its shorter than stock but longer than a shorty) defintiely woke up the bottom end on my bike, and added some power on top. It pulls noticeably harder in 3rd coming ... more »

Added reply in a thread 49t sprocket on a TC125? 5/2/2019 7:05 AM

Not quite apples to apples, but my 150 came with a 48t sprocket and I went up to a 49t which made carrying 3rd in corners much easier without so much clutch. If you want it to be easier to stay on the pipe i'd try a 51t on your 125. Don't forget to mess ... more »
