I think you answered your own question without knowing it. Your buddy had dream like Cone Valves..... Buy a set for yourself! Case closed.

Add me to the broken femur club. Broke mine 9 weeks ago today. Just going between a cane and nothing right now. Not much fun, that's for sure.

Reply to Want To Feel Old? 11/29/2019 10:13 AM

I thought you were going to say, break your femur! When you get to the point in recover of using a cane, THAT makes you feel old. I just went across the street for lunch, and on my way back, there was an old guy, probably in his 80's, using a cane. I ... more »

In the shot showing the bottom of the piston, it looks like there was a flaw because of the freshly broken coloration, but it doesn't start where the edge of the piston was. You can see that oil/gas has seeped into the casting at some point.

I remember not that long ago, Yugo was going to re-enter the market with a station wagon called the 'WeGo'. LOL.

This is exactly how I do mine! I still hate doing them, but this seems the result in less cussing.

I wouldn't expect them to say anything else, and in your position, you hear stuff we will never hear, but it just seems that there have been a few riders that rode the wheels off the YZ250F and won some races, only to have problems with the 450. Of course, ... more »

Reply to No more RMATVMC O.E.M. parts? 10/16/2019 11:02 AM

My closest dealership is 38 miles away, and they aren't a KTM dealer. The closest KTM dealer is something like 75 miles away. RM has fair prices, fast shipping, and pretty much has what I need quickly. That makes me a repeat customer. EDIT - They don't ... more »

Reply to Looking for 200 CC 2 stroke engine for a project bike 10/15/2019 9:32 AM

Check with T-Fish. He has a 2004 SX200 motor in a 2011 KTM 150 chassis. Unsure if he'd separate the motor, electronics, etc.

I used to have one, but we just moved. I have no idea if it moved or got thrown away. I'd bet it got tossed, but who knows. Unfortunately, All that stuff is in a storage unit and I won't know until next summer because our house build won't be done til ... more »

So what year is the bike again? Based on 5 min of research(Google), it's no newer than 2018.

Reply to Workschassislab 9/26/2019 6:13 AM

I quickly scanned all 6 pages and have a question that no one brought up. For the record, I'm a computer nerd, not an engineer, so these are real questions and thoughts with no knowledge on the topic. These mounts are all about flex characteristics, ... more »
