Simply amazing switch. I swapped a bike I recently sold(cr250), but it was well worth it.

Yup, I've seen THREE in my life. One when I bought a new 2001 CR250, another I bought from my uncle, and the third was the 350 I just bought from Missouri. Almost no one in Wisconsin keeps them. We don't register any of them since they are off-road competition ... more »

I went with the Firepower from RMATVMC Info was much appreciated, especially the info from Paw. I never thought about the abuse part and the battery coming apart inside.

thanks! I know I've seen people talk about using a battery with more aH or CCA's. I just didn't know if anyone had done that to theirs. That is one area I really don't understand, electrical stuff. I usually mutter through with YouTube

I didn't see an option for me. OLD, FAT, and SLOW, but LOVE riding/racing!

Yeah, needed the magic button!

Reply to My turn - spoke with my wallet 9/9/2019 6:02 AM

I know the spoke with my wallet deal, but I sold the 2-stroke, so I was half in the right! LOL. I definitely didn't want to sell it, but every time I tipped over or crashed, I had to push my bike to a place where I could stand on something to start it. ... more »

If the piston you are holding matches the damage on the exhaust port, I'm almost positive that piston was in backwards.

Just fixing shit, SEEMEFIRST hit it on the head, get a Lincoln or Miller MIG and weld away. You can get a book to help understand a bit better. Just have fun with it while you learn.

I agree, but where I work, we are the ones getting shit on. Prior to me, there was 2 IT managers over a 5 year period. On was here a year, then no manager for 1.5 years. The next one only made it 6 months, then another 1+ with no manager. I've been cleaning ... more »

Our local 2 year college has a welding certification. There is a basic welding class that briefly covers torch, mig, tig, and stick. If you have a local place that hires welders, stop in and ask them what you need to learn to get a job there. They may ... more »

College loan programs need a makeover. They need to cap them based on earning potential in the field you are studying! These garbage degrees will just go away then and kids won't rack up 6 figure loans. Granted, I graduated college in 1994, but came ... more »

Reply to Would Justin Bogle benefit from training at Aldon's? 8/19/2019 6:20 AM

In my opinion, he needs help with one thing and one thing only - FOCUS. He seems to lose focus making one small mistake costing him either places, or injuring him. He is fast, no doubt. I think if his focus improves, his confidence goes up, he runs in ... more »

I think you are viewing it all wrong. Yup, the C-ship is over in the 450's, but now you can go and watch the action a bit farther back in the pack. Do you honestly think that Zack-O and Anderson are going lay up and coast? Roczen? Those guys aren't wired ... more »

IT Manager, Healthcare. Pays the bills, but Healthcare is pretty stressful with all of the diminishing reimbursements. What once was a stable industry is now a mess.
