What is a heat cycle?

Take the knuckle to a good precision machine shop that can measure the bore of the knuckle and hardware and see if they are out of round. By the time you get to the axle, thousandths can seem like 1/8th inches.

You sound like you already know what to do. Or go by your owners manual to break in. I swear guys over think this break in. Don't let it sit in your garage idling. Stupid. These thing aren't made of glass. The bike needs air moving over through the radiators. ... more »

There may be exclusions in the contract that gave them an opening to change the contract. While the exclusions may seem extreme they are there for a reason.

Unless it is your company, talk the company into leasing a car for customer relations or something. Then you can buy whatever you want. Here's something I did when my kids were driving. I bought an $800 Toyota Camry and had my kids rated in that. It ... more »

I wish I was in the targeted rider weight category, I would save me money ever time I buy a bike. I would guess about the time a guy feels he is ready for re-valving is about the time his suspension could use a refresh service.

Cole Seely talks about what it cost him while he was racing. I don't know if other athletes have to pay something similar or they get these expenses covered in their contracts. I guess a portion of those expenses can be written off on his taxes so there's ... more »

No experience but they have been around forever. Maybe give them a call. It looks like a good product.

Added reply in a thread YZ250 Pinging Issue 11/18/2020 9:18 AM

Motocross action has always recommended running some c12 mixed into pump gas on YZ's. Maybe a 4:1 ratio of pump to race fuel to fight that pinging. A friend of mine runs Bardahl octane booster and MXA again recommends that too. $7 a bottle could be a ... more »

A paramedic requires medical control, usually operating under a physicians license. To carry and use pain control meds is a huge responsibility and $$$. Again, it's about money. People want it all and they want it at 50% off. About all I hope for is ... more »

If you have to worry about wearing out a truck, it's not a real truck.

Except for a 2 year window I have had trailers since 1992. They are a part of my lifestyle and we use the trailer for more than just racing. It's hard for people for some people to imagine a weekend in the desert with hotels 20 miles away and the whole ... more »

I had my right knee replaced 2 years ago. I was back on the bike in a little over 3 months. I told him I ride. He said he could fix anything. The only absolute is NO running. I should have had it done a lot sooner. I was miserable. My knee pain would ... more »
