Thanks for the replies! I will do what’s best for my son and hopefully we will be back on the track sometime this year. I feel he will be fine but the financial part will hit my disposable income for a while. I just reviewed the first 5 claims from the ... more »

I don’t anything he can take out or loose. Plus most people say you cannot eat with them.

Well the cost will have to be addressed on the front end. I still have my portion of the ER visit to pay and I have no idea what that will be. I’m thinking we will sale the bike and take an extended break.

I have insurance and the ER visit and follow up will be covered under Medical since it was an accident. As far as the implant or any type of fake tooth will be considered cosmetic so that will fall back on me. I will figure out a way to pay for it but ... more »

Hey Sev3ns, Thanks for the reply! My son just turned 15. The doc who performed the surgery at the ER in Florida mentioned waiting until he was 18 for the implant but the local surgeon I took him to for the follow-up mentioned we may be able to move forward ... more »

Thanks for the reply's. My son was actually with a good friend and his son. I had to stay back in TN and work. His son over jumped a wall jump and compressed his back. So he has both kids and 2 Service K-9 shepards in the Emergency Room. Crazy couple ... more »

Over the holiday break my son was ridding at WW Ranch in the Florida and crashed over a high speed double. He knocked 4 teeth out and fractured his jaw which required emergency surgery. They saved 3 teeth but they could not save 1 tooth due to the bone ... more »

We were sponsored by Just1 for 3 seasons and though they make a great helmet there was a logistic issue getting the new helmets in the states. We are switching to the new LS2 helmet. It is just as light and has crazy ventilation. Our contact sent one

If the porting and head mods are done correctly you will gain power everywhere. Contact Terry Varner for your mods.

After modding both bikes out they are very close. I had a fully modded EBR KTM 125 and we now have the YZ modded by Terry Varner. After modding the KTM had 40hp and our YZ has 39. They are really close. The TM is faster out of the box than both but it's ... more »

I agree they are more refined and in stock form they have about 3hp on the YZ. Though the air forks are no where close to the YZ. You must also keep an eye on the powervalve. They can start sticking at any point due to the design. But I understand wanting ... more »

You may want to consider modding the YZ. Porting and a pipe/silencer really wakes the YZ up. We had both and my son prefers the YZ suspension and handling.

There are a lot of fresh bikes for sale with under 5hrs after Loretta's and mini o's. Keep in mind the top level kids are going to have good equipment for the nationals. When they age out or move up they sell the bikes. One of the kids living down at ... more »

KPA or Kinetic Polymer Alloy. Very light and does not shatter like carbon fiber.

The LS2 shell rotates similar to the Bell helmet. The difference is the EPS liner is actually molded into the helmet so after time it will not come loose.

I happen to have the new LS2 right now but I have to ship it back for a photo shoot. It's crazy light and the ventilation is just unreal. We were sponsored by Just1 for the past 3 years but they pulled sponsorship and we could never get the latest models ... more »

The YZ 125 is still competitive and winning national events on the amateur side. If you mod the KTM or YZ 125 the end result is about the same. The KTM has a better motor off the showroom floor. Though I did ride a TM last year and was blown away on ... more »
