I just rode a 2018 300xcw yesterday, and I can't believe how good that thing is for trail riding. The 250/300 is a few pounds heavier, but is ultra-uber torquey. That might give you a few more options for a used bike search if you're willing to deal ... more »

Which brand works better is totally dependent on who did the most R&D. If you want it for the cool sticker on the side of the block, they both work well. I'm about to start riding/building a 2017 250SX. I'm going to start by sanding the reed block ... more »

Send me a private message if you want to sell your FC250. I might be interested if the hours are low. I had a 2014 YZ250F and I really liked that bike.

I tested these in Baja for the 1000 mile Score race. They worked really well. Kept our motor safe from dust.

Sweet workshop, LOL! How many hours on the bike? What's it like to ride (say compared to a KTM)?

Yeah, I rode the same track yesterday on my 125. Some of those lines ?!? Amazing talent.

Any tips for making sure the transaction goes smoothly? I'm talking about private part to private party on a barely used bike with someone that I don't know. Mostly I'm worried about sending $6 to $7k across the country and then having the seller disappear ... more »

Jeff Slavens was saying something about Loctite supporting some regs of public lands. That was in a KTM setup video he posted.
