I would say they are worth it for those people that do longer races, or suffer with numbness, or have a bike that vibrates.

Added reply in a thread 2015 Husqvarna FC 250 3/5/2019 3:22 PM

Those bikes have some issue with the cam chain tensioner, and 4CS fork is not good (in stock form) for moto or aggressive riding, but if it's low hours, it's a really solid bike. Tensioner is a cheap fix. Forks only get bad when you push them. The most ... more »

I have helped a friend in Australia with some bikes. I am an Aussie living in SoCal. I'll send you an email and I'll help you if I can (as a vitard, not for $

The blue wipers set it off nicely. Who makes those wipers?

Added reply in a thread YZ 125 clutch issues 3/4/2019 10:04 AM

Clutch failure is usually the result of extreme heat, which softens the spring tension and causes slip, which cause more heat and more slip and so on. The first thing to check is the cable. Disconnect at the lever and you should be able to work the cable ... more »

It doesn't need much. If you want to mess with it, by all means. What it needs and what you want are different! The beauty of this bike is that you can run it stock, no need to mess with anything. A normal race prep (Loctite, tubes, grease, your favorite ... more »

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

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 »

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 »

Added reply in a thread 1998 KX build for Le Touquet 2/8/2019 8:44 AM

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 »

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.
