Reply to Built Yz125 vs built Ktm 125 7/23/2020 5:59 AM

If you are going with a yz, just buy 2 of them that are like 2008-2010 and go through them completely and make them identical. One for practice and one for racing. It's nearly the same bike as a 2020 anyway. Save the money. I'd personally go with the ... more »

This reminds me of the old saying: This thing is like a fat chick. Fun to ride, but you don't want your friends to see you on it!

you can only polish is turd so much, it's still a turd! Holy smokes! I wouldn't let my worst enemies or their kids ride that thing.

Reply to contracts related to silly season and the delayed nationals 7/21/2020 1:02 PM

I could have worded it better. If the pre-existing contract is by date, say Oct 1st 2019, Sept 20, 2020, does the contract still hold true to the end of Nationals. If not, could a rider then start riding other brands 10/1 to see if he wants to change ... more »

New thread contracts related to silly season and the delayed nationals 7/21/2020 11:39 AM

I don't know how the contracts work with the Pros with relation to the delayed season. Will there be any riders that have contracts that expire prior to the end of Nationals? I'm guessing if there is, it might cause a change in contract language down ... more »

I'm a bit late to your party, but it looks really nice! When reassembling the transmission, I hope you looked at the gears really good. 2nd gear on the early 2000's was like butter. When you get it running, if it pops out of 2nd gear under power, that's ... more »

Reply to Private sale gone South 6/29/2020 5:58 AM

I had a deal like that as well with an RM125. The guy called me back after 2 weeks and said the motor locked up. I had just put in both bottom and top end into it. After asking more questions, he says "I was just riding down the highway on my way to ... more »

I wouldn't touch Forkner. He seems to crash a lot. I think Sexton has way more upside. Yup, he's going to hit the dirt a few times on the 450, but I think he'll be top 3 in a couple of years.

I tuned 50 min March. I stopped riding a couple of years ago because my older son was deployed and my younger son didn't want to ride anymore, so I lost my riding buddies. Then my younger son decide to ride again, and all was great until 9 months ago. ... more »

Color Blind! He had no idea and no one corrected him.

Reply to Lawrence brothers vs Forkner...?? 6/11/2020 6:24 AM

If I was a predictor of future happenings, I'd say at least one person gets a time out from Gibby! As for the moves, I didn't see what led up to the Forkner drift over into Lawrences tire, but the retaliation was hilarious and stupid both. Hilarious ... more »

Reply to Sweet, unlikely success - tire changing 5/27/2020 5:57 AM

The only time I've pinched any tubes in the last 5-10 years have been my friends! Not sure why, but it's true. I have a different method than others though. I don't have a tire changing stand, so I do it on the floor on my hands and knees! I have 3 irons ... more »

Reply to Did the meetings happen? 5/7/2020 6:18 AM

The problem with how we are controlling the opening back up of things is by using hard numbers. We need to switch to percentages. If you are testing 1000/day and get roughly 100 positives, that's 10%. If you up the testing to 10000/day, you would expect ... more »

Does it come with 'favor'? Lots of them! the price might not be out of line if he just picked it up and equipped it like that with 0 hours, but not with 15!
