Most likely Honda CRF as the lugs have a spot for a disc guard. KX never had this in the lugs.

Added reply in a thread New wheels for ktm 450? 2/15/2019 9:02 AM

I haven't looked into it myself, but I should probably do it. I'm an A-class rider, and tore/taco'd my KTM front wheel during practice. Gives me goose bumps thinking about what could have happened to me if I hit a little harder or didn't pull over right ... more »

Added reply in a thread 1994 YZ250 Rescue 2/13/2019 2:20 PM

That's the 1995 YZ250 color, rather than the 1994. It would look great with 1995 seat cover and OEM graphics. Check out the differences 1994 to 1995 on google. Both look good, IMHO! Between the new pipe, decent anodizing condition on the forks and a ... more »

Added reply in a thread YZ ignition timing 2/12/2019 2:21 PM

Somebody said that Yamaha never developed their YZ250. Somebody else said you could rebuild a 2005 YZ to be just like a new bike. All of those people were wrong. The best you can hope for is to get your YZ working as if it rolled off the showroom. That's ... more »

Added reply in a thread 1998 KX build for Le Touquet 2/8/2019 1:34 PM

That's not why I race, but that might be enough for the OP. I'm not there for anyone but myself and to know that I did my best. I can't give my best if I'm stuck on the side of the track with steam pouring out of my radiator and a clutch that's slipping ... more »

It's not that it's not good enough, but if you want to do your best, you need a better bike. My foundation for my argument is 20 years racing off-road. As one example, I recently went from a 2013 KTM to a 2017 KTM and one generation change is a gigantic ... more »

Awesome effort on making to the start line and round five laps! I love offroad racing, and restored vintage. However, vintage bikes and enduro do not go together. They are in fact, opposites. For offroad racing, train, ride, test, fix bike and repeat ... more »

Liked a comment on the item Tested: Oakley Front Line Goggle 2/6/2019 11:29 AM

Food for thought on the last words, we walk around with $200 plus sunglasses on our face everyday without thinking twice. Why do people think $200 is too much for goggles when they are actually serving a purpose of protecting a very vital spot on our face while...more

Added reply in a thread YZ 250 tank graphics 1/31/2019 8:26 AM

OEM graphics have a special glue that is resistant to fumes: two parts whale sperm, one part fairy dust. That and they are applied before the tank is 'saturated' with gas, and therefore, it is able to bond.

Added reply in a thread KTM Swingarm/Clutch Cover Protectors any good? 1/28/2019 2:26 PM

I wouldn't run engine covers on a four-stroke due to heat. Swingarm guards, maybe with some ducttape 'padding' to keep the plastic up off the aluminium.

Added reply in a thread Brake pad not straight 1/28/2019 2:24 PM

This is mainly a Suzuki and Kawi problem. I know they both spec a Nissin part, but I don's see this anywhere near as often on Yam/Hon. Might have to do with the brake pad material or insulation.

Added reply in a thread Harris STIC mod / PWK 38 for my 18' TC 250.......fuel mix? 1/28/2019 2:21 PM

You don't have a choice? Why? Just pick a middle of the road oil-ratio like 40:1 or 36:1 and jet around that for both bikes. Or buy two gas cans and a sharpie if that help you sleep better. TMX or PWK can work well 20:1 to 100:1. Obviously you'll need ... more »

Added reply in a thread Jett boots are back! 1/26/2019 3:55 PM

Jett boots are a little lighter than the Instincts, about the same in terms of ankle support but a little fatter at the pivot than the instincts. The Jetts are all plastic which is hard on graphics. I don’t feel the stops on any of these boots. They ... more »
