Will I need to get a remap if I throw in cams?

I have never had the opportunity to ride an Alta but from most of what I've seen they look like they are a blast. Such a shame they couldn't find the funding to keep going.

Im really not opposed to any particular route I just dont want to spend money on something that makes no difference. I know the RMZ is know for signing off on top and I'd like to fix that. I didn't really consider big bore because so much of what I read ... more »

My apologies I was wrong. The Kawasaki PR does not use the term "Kit." That term was dropped by the VitalMX editorial before the actual Kawasaki PR.

Ha yup just looked on RockyMountain and a 14T front is on closeout from Primary Drive for $4.79. Sounds like a cheap enough way to try to me! Thanks.

Yes the "if it will pull it" is my concern. Bottom to mid on these bikes is actually nice but they fall so flat up top. When riding it's not like I am at the top of the gear if that makes sense? It's more that it just stops pulling as hard as it does ... more »

"A" Kit is a Showa thing. These are Kayaba. Like ML said, I don't believe this is the "factory" level suspension. KYB forks with coatings and components as if you ordered from ENZO.

Looking for some input. I have a rmz250 and looking to make the bike pull longer in each gear. I have full Yoshimura exhaust and Hinson clutch. I have tried a screenless intake and that didn't seem to actual to anything at all so I am back to running ... more »

I can't help you there. At $13,000 I'd be nervous riding it. Although I'm also one who will never finance a dirt bike. If I don't have the money in my account then I don't buy it.

According to the press release it will come with KYB kit suspension. Any idea what "kit" suspension from KYB is exactly?

If it's available near you, treat yourself to 5 gallons and see what you feel. I was given a bonus from work awhile back for recruitment and spent it on T4. Ever since that has been all I run. I'm a vet rider so often times my bike will sit for weeks ... more »

Sounds good. Do you need me to send the new valves with the head to you? Or do you have valves there? I believe these were Ti stock.

Started new thread Need help with shops that cut in new valve seats 9/29/2021 6:23 AM

My nephew has a 2013 RMZ250 that we need to put new valves in. As I understand, the new valves need to have new seats cut in order to seal properly and last the longest. I am in NW IA and wondered if you guys have any contacts for shops with decent turnaround ... more »

That's another one I'm probably guilty of. Odd I don't get cramps in any other muscles.

I would say I am definitely guilty of not easing into my pace like I should. I have the same issue on the bicycle too and I don't think I am holding on for dear life on that. Also same issue with screw drivers. I only use electric impacts for bolts and ... more »
