Call me crazy, but I don't think RC would have beaten JS in the 125 class. It just seemed like Bubba could do anything he wanted on that bike. A match made in heaven. Completely agree about the greatness of the 90s and early 00s.

One thing I notice about the Bubba 125 days - every time he was interviewed, he had a huge smile on his face. He seemed to be having enormous fun on that bike. Once he graduated to the big bike class, the smile seemed to disappear.

Maybe it's nostalgia kicking in, but mx (racing) was so much cooler/interesting back in the early 00's.

I'm sure I read somewhere that the standard Dirtstar rims were lighter than the LTX ones.

04+ (frame)/swingarm. The swingarm has those little black covers protecting a linkage bolt. The 03 did not have this.

Hey Tyla, thanks for doing the Q&A! How hot does it have to be to be considered 'Africa Hot'?

I don't think it'll be a sad day when Monster leave sx/mx. They don't come across as a nice company. The Vermonster beer thing is a good example. I will never buy a can of Monster Energy.

Why chime in? That's the point of a forum. You will never get everybody sharing the same opinion. And no, it's not.

Haha. Riiiiiight. So apparently, to enjoy mx, you have to like EVERY rider. Sure thing! That's handy for Friese, then. We can't help it that Dungey is boring to watch. There is only one time RD5 has been good to watch - Millville ?2010? when he was on ... more »

It would probably be a case of taking the pipe to someone for them to do it. The bad thing with that....it costs money. At least elbow grease is free. lol. Best way to see what it's about is have a peek on youtube. You can get some very impressive results. ... more »

What about using an ultrasonic cleaner? Would save a lot of elbow grease.

I get the impression he had a lot more fun when he was riding the 125 and that's what made him ride better. Whenever he was interviewed during his 125 days he used to be smiling and had a bit of swagger about him. When he moved up to the 250 class, I ... more »

Just out of interest, where are those discs from? Ex factory kawi discs, correct? Can mere mortals get their hands on some?

Added reply in a thread Factory bikes Cleaner than ever ? 12/13/2015 6:10 AM

Exactly! 2005 seemed to be the year of clean looks. Factory Kawi was another with very plain graphics (nearly stock looking). Much prefer those understated looks to the current offering of factory graphics.
