I recommend pitting for fuel. I don't have a choice, as I typically burn almost a gallon a lap (2018 CRF450RX). Keeping a solid pace for 2 hours is going to burn more fuel than trailriding. Further, it's a 2 hour race. Depending on how the laps fall ... more »

Added reply in a thread How tight do you guys tighten your steering stem bearings? 10/8/2020 6:31 PM

I run mine pretty tight in my 2018 450RX...tight enough that the bars will not flop to the side by themselves, and there's a decent amount of drag felt. Bike has almost 300 hours on it, still on original stem brgs, I'll need to replace them at the end ... more »

Sorry to hear that they're being so petty about it. That sucks... especially because it's affecting your wife like it is. I didn't have to deal with that when I evicted my father. He did try to make me feel guilty about it, but I didn't let it get to ... more »

Buy a Honda...they'll run without the battery. Suzuki's will too

Pawpaw....the charging voltage is different between Li and lead acid batteries. The two are not interchangeable. Besides, the new bikes typically don't come with lead acid

Added reply in a thread 2018 CRF 250 R Water Pump Help 9/5/2020 12:56 PM

Those engines use a mechanical water pump seal. You have to press the shaft out. It will not come out by hand. Then when you reassemble it, you have to install a new mechanical seal, which must be pressed on. (Honda recommends a new water pump shaft ... more »

Added reply in a thread Experience-based coolant/lowered engine temp recommendations 9/5/2020 8:07 AM

Lower humidity tends to increase evaporative cooling, as ambient air at say 20% humidity can absorb more moisture than ambient air at 80% humidity. Evaporative cooling doesn't really have an effect on motorcycle engines unless you 've just crossed a ... more »

Added reply in a thread Experience-based coolant/lowered engine temp recommendations 9/5/2020 8:03 AM

Best bet in my experience would be oversize radiators, a Boyesen Supercooler, and a high pressure radiator cap. Engine Ice, Ice flow, all those "special" coolants have a surfactant (a "wetting" agent) in them, so theoretically more of the coolant is ... more »

Funny thing about it is Markel is a billion dollar company....just nobody has heard of them

Added reply in a thread Geico Leaving The Sport? 8/30/2020 1:19 PM

Try Markel. Mine is closed course ('18 CRF450RX) and they wrote me a full coverage policy. In fact I did $900 worth of damage to my bike on a trail ride in PA and they paid it no problem 👍. If you need dirtbike insurance I highly recommend them

if you put a small zip tie around the rubber boot where the shaft goes in it should tighten it up to where it'll stay up.

Added reply in a thread 2018 CRF450R Starter problems 8/29/2020 3:37 PM

The stock battery has a fuse built in. It's likely you blew it when this happened. Check the voltage across the terminals and if you get no reading you need a new battery

Nope...don't have that welded. Replace the frame. First problem if you have it welded is it'll change the bore diameter where the head bearing sits. 2nd and far more concerning is that if you have it welded, you'll have a brittle area along both sides ... more »
