Added reply in a thread Scared of horsepower? 5/9/2013 11:16 AM

On the big bikes it pays dividends to use the torque and keep the bike pulling, so I have to agree with the topic when we're talking about the 450F. A lot of the time I race a 125, but this point also applies to a 250F, any small bore in general... On ... more »

Added reply in a thread 99 yz 250 4/24/2013 7:12 AM

Any YZ250 from 99+ is really good. The engine was new in 1999 and is basically the same through 2013. In 2002 they added the 5mm spacer between the reed block and cylinder. They changed the ratio of 2nd gear (to a faster gear) as well as bumped the compression ... more »

Yeah, that's pretty much it. Monster trucks are a spectacle for sure. Ivars? I'm not really into seafood.

After the race on Saturday night, I was waiting at the Seattle ferry terminal with my group of friends. There was a huge crowd of people who had walked down from the stadium in there. Just in front of us, some people were talking about the "show". They ... more »

Added reply in a thread Help to make my 125cc look like a beauty! 4/21/2013 4:30 PM

That is the best looking later model RM I've seen! Are those the stock forks from a 1996-1998?

Why don't we just have the race at OPMC (Port Angeles)? It never, hardly ever rains up there... and when it does, it's still good to race.

Just like Mike Alessi himself... Unending belief that he has a chance of winning. *edit* wow, that made no sense... Clicked the wrong quote button and quoted the wrong post. *

I've missed the last two years of supercross while I was overseas working... Last time I saw a live SX was 2010 when KW dominated in the rutted soaking wet track. I'm listening to the rain pound the shit out of the metal roof here at work about 30 miles ... more »

Added reply in a thread Dropping from 450's to 250's 4/17/2013 11:03 AM

It's not the same thing, but I have a couple of YZ250 two strokes and a YZ125. The hard part is switching back up from the 125. I get used to clutching it and pinning it everywhere, then I jump on that 300cc big bore and I'm out of control for about ... more »

Added reply in a thread VIDEO: Alex Frye Pinned On The 1.2.5. 4/1/2013 11:02 PM

I agree. It took me up to age 32 to get my first 125. Nothing else is this much fun!

Added reply in a thread MX school/camp expectations..... 3/28/2013 11:05 AM

A mid-pack B rider that just moved up to the B class is a big difference from a guy who has been stagnating in the B class. The one thing you can't teach is aggression. You also can't give someone the desire and the passion it takes to work hard and ... more »

Added reply in a thread BEST bikes you've ever ridden? 3/26/2013 12:20 AM

Due to money and time I didn't have a bike from age 23 until age 27. When I got back into the sport I picked up a used 2002 YZ250. It's such a well rounded package that when I bought my next bike I kept it around. I have plans to put a big tank and a ... more »

Yeah, HRMC is sandy, but it packs in underneath and always gets rough by the end of the day. My suspension is bone stock. I'll be sending an extra fork/shock out for revalve very soon. To help out your go-pro, you can get those little packs of dessicant ... more »

This one is from a few weeks ago. They started us on the same gate drop with the 30+ Pro class, so I ate a little of their sand for a couple corners.

Added reply in a thread Where is the new Maico? 3/21/2013 12:17 PM

I have this type of machine... I've been thinking about a set of CR500 cases that bolt into a modern chassis... Thought about the Y and that's a problem. Thought about a kit for the YZ250 frames ('99-'13), the CR250R ('02-'07) and the latest KTM 250SX ... more »

Check into the 2006 - 2013 YZ250 and a 295cc big bore kit. I race the 30+ Intermediate and the Open B class on that bike with a lot of success.

All that vibration is bound to get you a whiskey throttle sooner or later (probably sooner)... I can't really imagine anything worse than whiskey throttling out of a bowl turn on a 700cc two stroke! Ok... maybe I can think of one thing that's worse: ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is there a "go fast" gene? 3/20/2013 1:18 PM

That's a fair point... I didn't think of it quite that way. One aspect is that he has the right people around him to help him out with the making money part. Perhaps he learned that as a result of his pro-motocross career.

I think the inner ear thing is often associated to "talent"... I group it in there... It has to be true though. Think about a fighter pilot. They have to have some insanely quick reflexes. Perhaps the rest of us can train our brains to that level, but ... more »
