Added reply in a thread 2015 FC250 Seat Bolt Spinning 6/7/2021 8:41 PM

Not uncommon for the imbedded nut to break loose inside the seat pan's plastic of the Husqvarnas, I've had two do this. You may have to resort to cutting off/out the bolt as I did. Then reseat the nut imbedded in the seat pan's plastic with a heat gun ... more »

Added reply in a thread Locals price gouging used clapped bikes 3/31/2021 12:37 AM

Used bikes, boats, trucks, toy haulers, kayaks... heck, anything outdoors related is stupid prices in California right now. Wouldn't call it gouging per se, just what the market will bear with such unusually high demand. I have seen signs of some of ... more »

Added reply in a thread Flame out issues on 21 350 XC-F? 3/29/2021 11:54 AM

I'd tend to believe that reflashing your current ECU by Blais would be the better if not best option to "fix" that fueling circuit to eliminate flame outs. Bang for the buck, that's the route I'd go. I'm an old and admittingly slow offroad guy, so take ... more »

Added reply in a thread Are 2-strokes banned in California? 3/11/2021 6:19 PM

That's good news. Not to be argumentative, do you have a source for this? I was looking for information all afternoon online including CARB website. Perhaps my google skills are lacking. That said, unless CA SB 227 is passed, it is still my understanding ... more »

Added reply in a thread Are 2-strokes banned in California? 3/11/2021 5:32 PM

I'm not a scientist or an engineer, but have followed this saga for a number of years including reading all the publicly available presentations by CARB. There is no two stroke, including TPI's, currently available that will come close to meeting the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Telltale leaking intake valve symptoms 3/9/2021 11:26 PM

Paw Paw pretty much nailed it. If you suspect valves, check the clearances, adjust if nesc, and do a leak down test on your motor. The leak down will tell if they are leaking and which ones are leaking.

Added reply in a thread How tall do i have to be? 3/4/2021 4:41 AM

When your parents say you are tall enough OR you are tall enough to pay for your own shelter, food, health insurance, education, bike, and maintenance. At 5'4" you are still well within the YZ85 or other similarly sized bike realm in my opinion. Just ... more »

Added reply in a thread Interesting news on E-bikes 3/2/2021 1:24 PM

Like it or not, it is the future and probably sooner than some, myself included, would prefer. I'm not a MX guy, just a senior offroad rider. I love my two strokes and still prefer them over my 350 four stroke for everyday riding. But I have ridden an ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is the CR500 the greatest Dirt Bike of all time? 2/24/2021 9:57 AM

Cool video, love looking back over the years. Bench racing for an all time greatest bike or even bikes is good reading. One nitpick in the video for historical accuracy, the 76 RC500 was indeed Honda's first year. However you picture a 79 or 80 RC500

250/300 is also Left Hand thread, my 16 300 is. Right loosen, left tighten. I generally break this nut loose prior to removing engine from bike with a impact gun. As I don't have the special holding tool, I thread a little climbing rope in through the ... more »

Added reply in a thread Questions for Dungey 2/14/2021 12:02 AM

1) I'd like to know if he knew what was happening at Geico Honda (sponsorship loss) AND if that was part of the decision to part ways. If he didn't, what was the reason. Or was it any of the other reasons posted already? I imagine this is probably the ... more »

Added reply in a thread I'll help some of our fellow posters out with a PSA about Diffey. . . 2/13/2021 11:32 PM

I get why they are identifying the color of the bikes.... I've watched the races with some family/friends that are not moto... and they have no idea. Its easier for them to know which rider they are talking about on screen. If Diffey didn't, I have to. ... more »

Added reply in a thread YZ125 Low Compression 2/1/2021 5:47 PM

Paw Paw and others have hit the relative points. 90 psi is way too low. Since it sounds like you are doing this all yourself and mentioning piston size etc, I have a few suggestions to consider if you are going to be doing this long term on your own ... more »

Added reply in a thread TUSK vs VEVOR 2/1/2021 4:05 PM

Interesting, never heard of them. Looks to be $35 cheaper than the Tusk when purchasing the combo of a crank puller and case splitter. Nothing terrible complex about these tools, so I imagine they will work just fine. I'm not a power user, but do a few ... more »

Great ride for Shimoda and even better his words on the podium. Class act and a ton of humility. Looking forward to seeing him progress. Congrats Jo!

TLD Gas Gas bikes looked fantastic. Makes me want to upgrade my Husky TE300 for a Gas Gas EC300 and order a full TLD graphics kit. Bet Troy and his team are going to have an EPIC party tonight!

I don't know how folks are going 200 miles on a 3 gallon tank....... hasn't been mine or anyone's experience I know on the KTM/Husq 350 or 500. Just did a Mojave trip this month. The group's mpg ranged from 40-50mpg. Perhaps it's the sand, perhaps my
