Added reply in a thread Fly Formula Carbon helmet is 8/14/2021 9:25 AM

I really, really like my Fly Formula helmet (although mine is the CC) *EXCEPT* I wish the mouth guard was closer to my face. I wore Bell Moto 9's for the last 5-7 years or so and when I started wearing the Fly I started getting roosted in my mouth/lips/nose ... more »

Added reply in a thread Let's see/review those 2019 kx450s 8/4/2021 3:38 PM

Lol, I took the judder stuff out and definitely prefer it out. I'm a clutch abuser and always picky about the clutch feel. KXF clutches last about 30-35 hrs for me and I always use OEM fibers and steels with Hinson basket.

Added reply in a thread Anyone got a 17 kxf450 6/28/2021 6:02 PM

I have both a 17 and a 19 with spring forks on both. The 17 is a really good handling bike, as good as the 19 IMHO. I do prefer to take out the 19 as I like the juice clutch and the e-start and at least on my two bikes the 19 motor is better - quite ... more »

I think the Fly Kinetic line is the perfect vet mx gear. Roomy but not loose fit, durable, and colorways that don't look like clown vomit.

This is probably the best summary based on actual science I have seen. :-)

+1 I like the 27 MPG!!!

Added reply in a thread Mercedes Metris Motovan 5/11/2021 5:00 PM

Thanks for the pics! I wasn't sure if a passenger version would be large enough to fit a bike. Do you have to do anything weird or special to get clearance of the handlebars for loading? Also, what is the wheel chock setup there? It looks like you have ... more »

I want it for the same - both moto and MTB trips! Glad to hear the 126 is enough. That opens up the options a bit...

Added reply in a thread Mercedes Metris Motovan 5/4/2021 7:45 PM

Sorry for bumping this old thread but I'm about ready to look for a Metris... @Metris owners - is the 126" long enough? Looking at available inventory I see more of the 126" around with the features I want. - what would you do different on your Metris? ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2021 KX450 clutch 5/4/2021 8:32 AM

Weasel - indeed the Kawi seems sensitive to this "clutch pack height" measurement and this should be considered when replacing a clutch. I went through something similar with my 13 KXF and ended up using one of the "alternate" thickness plates. After ... more »

Added reply in a thread New bike tomorrow.. 350 or 450 4/30/2021 10:52 AM

Good for you. I never had a modern motocross bike and bought a YZ426 in 2001. It worked out fine and I rode the wheels off that thing. I had a 350 and didn’t feel like it suited me and I never got comfortable on it. Don’t get me wrong, people are fast ... more »

Awesome guys and thanks for the info!

Started new thread Dirt tracker info wanted 4/28/2021 6:02 PM

After 20+ years of moto, I’m thinking of building up a dirt tracker with my now retired ‘13 Kx450. What’s the hot setup? What tires and wheel sizes I need? I will use a local guy to lower the suspension (Click). What else is a must do? I have a bike ... more »

This is exact same process I have been using since 2004. I get 75 or so hours out of a chain and then I replace them becuase I feel bad. I started using DT sprockets when they became widely available maybe 5-8 years ago.

Added reply in a thread Article on the new Bell Moto 10, $850 for the Limited Edition 4/17/2021 1:52 PM

It does seem awfully similar to the alpine stars that’s for sure. I am a fan boy and have had five or six Bell helmets in the last 10 years. This one I might have to see in person because it doesn’t really do much for me especially at that price tag. ... more »

life pro tip - cut a small slit about 3/8" toward the palm. This will give that finger hole a lot more life.

Another satisfied Mobius user here. I've had bad wrists on both sides from years of skateboarding. I tape my wrist(s) *and* use the Mobius braces these days and would be in too much pain to ride if I didn't have them. Only drawback - my buddies always ... more »
