It's all rider preference. I run mine stiff enough to race moto. I'm on a 2018 CRF450RX....had to go with stiffer valving and heavier springs. Stock was way too soft.

Added reply in a thread who all is racing first round of gncc this weekend? 2/25/2020 9:26 AM

Glad you guys enjoyed the GNCC. Dropping down a class is absolutely not allowed, and if someone protests those people, with supporting documentation (proof of results), they will be disqualified. There is zero tolerance for that at the AMA and at GNCC.

You're going to have to buy a gasket. Silicone alone is not adequate. Regarding the crank and rod...if it is rusted you'll have to split the cases and get the crank rebuilt. The plus side to this is you'll be able to find out why it doesn't rotate all ... more »

Check out youtube...I know it's a SUV, but there are several video tests of a Tesla Model X towing a trailer within its rated capacity. Range was cut by far more than half. Useless for any kind of distance towing unless you don't mind charging every ... more »

Nope...since 2013, if your loan requires PMI, which all FHA loans do...PMI can never be dropped for the life of the loan. To do away with PMI you have to refinance into a loan which does not require it. That's why I wont refinance my loan again. Can;t ... more »

CRF 450 RX. Gets you the 18" rear wheel, larger gas tank, and the engine is almost identical to the R. Only real differences are the cam, ECU and throttle body

Did ELI beat Ken in either of the two mains so far? A race is a race...either you win or you don't. Rather binary, actually

Added reply in a thread How to start faster from dead engine start on KTM 350? 1/25/2020 9:11 AM

You're just bumping the starter a bit at a time. When you get to the point where the engine doesn't roll through the revolution, and the starter drive kicks back a bit is when you're right before TDC, which is where you want to be. It's difficult to ... more »

They're doing that with 24v starting systems. Can't do that with 12v

Sorry to hear it went that way. I expected they wouldn't sign for the certified letter. Most deadbeat tenants (and that's for sure what they are) won't sign one...they think if they don't sign that nothing can be done. Ohio doesn't require a letter...just ... more »

Some riders bump it over with the E-start till they get to top dead center compression, like you would with a kicker. I'm sure that takes a good deal of practice to do reliably. Other than that I got nothing

Most likely cause is loose spokes. I'd call it junk and not run it
