Oh I saw it. It's basically like mixing Mr. Deeds and Talladega Nights into a blender of PBR.

Added reply in a thread 2019/2020 KTM 450 first top end maintenance according to real experience 12/1/2020 10:06 AM

Thanks- I knew I was forgetting to mention something, I replaced the bumpers first thing when I got the bike (thanks MXA!).

Added reply in a thread 2019/2020 KTM 450 first top end maintenance according to real experience 11/30/2020 4:47 PM

I know this is a little off topic, but probably still relevant to the OPs post as far as reliability. My 17.5 FE 450 has 160 hours. The motor seems noisy with the clutch out, when I pull it in the noise goes away. I have replaced the basket bearing, ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2019/2020 KTM 450 first top end maintenance according to real experience 11/29/2020 11:33 AM

Purchased my 17.5 FE in January with 140 hours on original top end, I am second owner and original owner was a vet Intermediate. I replaced piston and timing chain, but the stock piston looked great and could have gone much longer I'm sure.

Added reply in a thread Fitness watch with lap timer 11/24/2020 5:05 PM

I use a Garmin Forerunner 235 I picked up on ebay. Very affordable, gives me heart rate and laps with the Motosports+ app (it was an extra $5 or something like that.) When I come back to the truck, the laps are already uploaded to my phone by the time ... more »

Added reply in a thread What is the fastest vintage race? 11/24/2020 4:53 PM

I think the catch with vintage is really how diluted the talent gets because of so many eras. I was the only guy in my class at DVSX last year, it was a shame because that was an awesome experience and the track was just fine for the older bikes. I hope ... more »

I believe Fast Farms in TN is having a practice Saturday, not sure of you can make it that far in time.

Well, it is 2020, but seems unlikely.

Added reply in a thread Cycle Gear in Katy TX 11/14/2020 7:38 AM

Funny story- I don't know if it is COVID related pricing with the online places, but I bought an MX33 rear for my 450 at my local Cycle Gear last week because it was $30-ish cheaper that Rocky Mountain or Motosport!

Added reply in a thread At What Age, Did You Have Your Best Times, In Motocross? 11/12/2020 12:57 PM

I think this question is really interesting, because I am a "never was" who only made it to B class. So I don't have a frame of reference for what it would have felt like to be a pro. The flipside of that is that it seems like I continue to enjoy and ... more »

Added reply in a thread What does the AMA do well? 11/9/2020 11:32 AM

They do a great job getting me a magazine every month that I never read. And also promptly reminding me to re-up before my membership expires. They also offer a great deal if you want a multiyear membership- one year is $49 but three years is only $147...oh, ... more »

A lot of great advice on this thread, it is definitely hard to hold onto any of it in the moment as you will soon see. But I'm going to echo a few things that I think are the most important for your situation. 1- Practice starts, but don't stress about ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tech 3 buckles tough to release. 11/4/2020 8:57 AM

I've had two sets of Tech 3, my first set they were very hard to undo, I had to use a screwdriver at the end of the day. My current set isn't nearly as bad. As someone said you can file away or even use a drill to make the latch slots a tiny bit bigger. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Whats the most dangerous track in your state 11/4/2020 8:54 AM

I have a dangerous track success story. The old Motovated 101 track in Gray Court SC is very hard red clay. It had a section where there were two 90-ish foot jumps right after each other. They weren't very hard, but I was always very concerned when racing ... more »

Added reply in a thread track options at local tracks 10/30/2020 7:27 AM

The track I used to race on Oahu did that -- the start and top section was the same, but there is a huge valley with a lot of different options they switched up for ever race. That was nice... because it was the only track on the island!!
