That word, thanks. lol. For some reason I thought it was the way I wrote it. Should have asked Santa for a dictionary.

Added reply in a thread Factory KTM Grey/Black Engine case 12/27/2014 4:02 AM

Several factory teams have dark engine cases like that. I would guess they are light weight magnesium parts that get coated to prevent against oxidization (if that's the right -ization??). Or unless it's a thermal dispersant coating to get rid of heat ... more »

Thanks for that! I've always tried to pick out how the pros do it when there is helmet cam footage, but could never spot it. As for your comment "applying the brakes on the face of the wrong type of jump, you could end up with a nasty endo!"..... been ... more »

Great video!! Simple and very effective. Just a shame I don't ride mx any more to put it into practice! One thing I've wondered about is when you are going flat out and approaching a jump, at which point are you supposed to brake so you don't overshoot? ... more »

You'll have to keep us updated. I for one would like to see how you get on with the build. I've got all the stuff inc trick stuff (apart from black rims) to make an 03 replica, but ended up buying all white plastics for my 06 125. If i ever decide to ... more »

Funny, when I was younger I wasn't a big fan of that style/design/colour way of Splitfire Kawasaki. Now I'm older, I think they look awesome! 03 is better still, I reckon.

Are you going to keep the stock hubs? Be nice if you could turn them on the lathe to remove the casting marks and then have them re-done in that lovely mag brown colour. Unless you were going to get some mag brown Talon hubs or similar?

I would imagine EvoMX in the UK would also be able to make up some PC graphics. They've done a fair few Splitfire graphics for 00's shape and also the newer 03+ shape, so they are used to dealing with older team graphics.

Good luck with the replica build!! I love those 2003 Pro Circuit bikes! Be nice if you could find some of those exact carbon fiber clutch & ignition covers. I bought the last set in the UK a few years ago. Both covers only cost £100. Still have an ... more »

The stock 2003 KTM 250sx (apparently) made 51bhp. So 11 years of R&D later, I'm sure it wouldn't be hard for them to get to 56bhp.

I've seen both of those topics. Impressive work. I would love to do a '96 McGrath 250 replica.

Started new thread Which are the best bike rebuild threads? 11/12/2014 7:36 AM

I love reading peoples bike rebuild threads, but the ones I love reading most are those where the person is going crazy with attention to detail by making their own parts for the bike. Two that I've read recently that I was incredibly impressed by are ... more »

Keep the steel frame for the 2st with some other updates and Kawi would be onto a winner (in my eyes). No need for aluminium.

Can't wait to see what the professionals do with graphene once it's commonplace. Suppose we'll have to make do with CNT's for the time being!

Added reply in a thread Stuff like this never released into production 10/17/2014 10:56 AM

I would imagine once graphene becomes more readily available, carbon bars will be a common sight in mx.

He was racing 125s in 2001. His bike from 1999 was a nice looking thing!

mx295 - that's the bike in question! I already had that picture saved. The reason I wanted the article from the magazine was because they were testing that bike (which IMO, is the best looking bike ever - and I'm a diehard kx125 fan)

Added reply in a thread Does anybody have Dirt Bike magazine July 2001 issue? 5/4/2014 3:38 AM

Unless I'm mistaken, that is a completely different magazine. Thanks though.
