Yeah, shes awesome. She has surprised me in the past with a new trials bike and more than once been to the shop to grab parts and items I need. She also pits for me at many enduros per year as well as runs the scoring for multiple races. A true Gem.

So after buying TWO different Kawasaki 4 strokes this past year, I threw in the towel and called my local shop and had them prep the 2022 KTM 250XC TPI they just got in on the floor. I had to drive 4.5 hours each way to a funeral so my wife, being awesome

I may have rode my last race on the 250 this last weekend. I am just not as good on the 4 stroke. This KX has been FUN to ride but I don't posses the skill to ride it as fast as I do a 250 2 Stroke. I will be tearing it down in the coming weeks to grease ... more »

ML512, Welcome back to Vital. Your quality journalism in the industry has been missed here by myself personally. Thanks for what you did bringing back the 'Chaparral' Honda for 2 years. What you did with that team in such a short time as a 'normal Joe' is no small feat. You should be...more

Thank you for the kind words. It's nice to be back "home" per se and the stress levels are slowly dropping.

Add in the suspension and there's some serious bang for the buck!

I suspect we see more people/athletes like Kyle Warner in the future. For those unfamiliar, he was a very healthy MTBer who is dealing with terrible after effects of this particular Vaccine. I have been hearing of a lot of this inflammation as a side ... more »

Added reply in a thread Kawasaki Kxf 250 2021 clutch issues?? 9/14/2021 6:08 AM

I just dropped my bike off last night for my recall parts. They say if the plates are "browned" they are to replace those as well. I told them since I have about 50 hours anyhow, just to replace them regardless. I am a 40+A woods racer, and admittedly ... more »

Added reply in a thread Kawasaki Kxf 250 2021 clutch issues?? 9/14/2021 5:30 AM

Did they replace the clutch plates well? Kawasaki is a little different in the fact they recommend a certain clutch plate stack height when replacing and if it doesn't fall within range, you add or remove plates to get it within spec. I am wondering ... more »

Added reply in a thread What Fcp mounts for Kx450x 9/1/2021 11:02 AM

I had a KX450x and am now on a 250x. The best thing I found to get that sharp jolt out was the Mako360.

Added reply in a thread 2022 KX 250 8/26/2021 4:57 AM

I bet the KX250 is a rocket for you lightweight guys. I am about 225 on my 21 KX250X and it is a great bike but feels a little slow to me. It's my first 250 4 stroke after 20+ years of 250 2 strokes and about 6 months on a 450...

Added reply in a thread Clarke fuel tanks 8/10/2021 9:54 AM

Top notch company for sure. They sponsored me back in the early 2000's when I was racing 2 stroke KX's and their tanks were always better looking and fitting than the IMS tanks of the time.

The few time's he has been on the show, I have enjoyed his interviews. Mathes wasn't wrong in what he said about the Insta post but after that interview, I'd say move on, and live and let live....

Yes. Racing Enduros. 40+A rider. Fairly competitive. I am not a heavy clutch abuser though.

Added reply in a thread 2021 KX250 7/27/2021 7:24 AM

Got mine letter too... I have probably 40 hours on mine. Thought I noticed a little clutch slippage last weekend at a rough enduro. Looked into the Rekluse Torq Drive Manual but almost $1k for a manual clutch is steep!

For sure! I sold my 21 KX450 but I still think it's a great bike. It just didn't work as I would like for what I do.
