I’m going to ask something actually helpful in this thread...What kind of forks you running on your KX250?

I am almost 100% sure I remember my Honda’s from the 80s calling for 20:1... I always ran 32:1 and then moved to 40:1 in my 250s. I am currently running Motorex At 40:1 in my 2006 KX250 and it works great, piston looks good after about 25-30 hours, still ... more »

If you’re the team manager at Yamaha why would you not keep JB just because he didn’t get top 3 in the series, he still has a huge upside compared to AP.

I tore down the back end of the ole 06 KX250 and greased the linkage, doing a quick revalve in the shock as I truly believe I will feel the difference with the addition of one compression face shim and one HS shim from .3 to .25... but I’m bored so why ... more »

Reply to Knee Brace Suggestions 3/13/2020 11:58 PM

That’s what I’m riding in now and the Mobius are comfortable over all, but to be honest it doesn’t feel like it provides much lateral bracing for my legs. I think I need to get the optional pads back out and start trying to get a better fit out of them! ... more »

Can’t let the XO beat you!!! I’m at the BN level now and it really sucks not being close to the troops as much as I used to be which is what it’s all about isn’t it? Now they get nervous when I’m around the company areas and I just want to say hi and ... more »
