"the Dunlops weren’t completely fresh like the Hoosiers were, but they weren’t roasted either." - Great experimental design. Lets go through all the trouble of a comparison video, and skip the part where you use brand new tires.

Got the motor put back together. Went with the single ring Wiseco Racer Piston with the TiN (titanium nitride) coated ring.

Also swapped out the clutch basket with a billet aluminum one. The basket has steel inserts that the plates ... more »

Thanks man - appreciate the info. I went back and forth on the hubs but just decided to have Troy spin them down in the end. Ill let you know how it goes after I put some laps on them though. And yeah these all balls bearings were some leftovers I had ... more »

Wheels are buttoned up. I know there's some mixed reviews on turning down the hubs. I spoke with Troy over at TCR for a good bit before I finally pulled the trigger. Maybe he's just a good salesman but I felt good about it after speaking to him. In the

According to the application chart on Excels website, the front rim will work (Part # IC_408), but the rears are different...you'd need Part# GE_422.

You can't tell me that if every rider was wearing a go-pro and the production crew could switch to any rider at anytime during the race...that it wouldn't be beyond cool.

Yeah, the hot wheels graphics are sweet. Going a different direction with the graphics but for those of you interested, I still had the original N-style packaging laying around with the part number, N40-4119. Maybe that will help someone looking for

Little backstory - around Christmas 2003 I found a brand new RM250 on ebay (from Canada!) and convinced my mom that this would be a worthy Christmas gift for my dad. I was 16 at the time ripping around on a 99' YZ125 and thought a 250 two stroke would

Ricky should get some bonus points for wearing that live feed helmet cam! The segment of the race where they cut to the helmet cam and stop talking so you can listen to the sounds of the bike is great. I know we get similar video through the gopro footage

Thanks for all the help guys - Appreciate it! I never know how accurate the parts fiche diagrams are. It shows in 08 they moved to the caps similar to the 09-12 bikes, hence my original concern. A bit hard to tell in the images shown but you can see

Is there a way to distinguish between 2006 and 2007? It seems they both have the hex in the middle of the top cap.

Looking for someone who might be able to help me identify these forks I'm looking to buy. The seller is listing them as 2008, but I think they are from 07 as the top cap has the center "hex" nut (first picture). I was under the impression this changed
