Hello all, I am looking for a copy of the February 1983 issue of Dirt Bike Magazine (not the crash and burn special, but the regular issue that month). It has a picture of Hannah in a berm on his Honda on the cover. Thanks!

New thread Ignition Cover Removal-Drain Oil? 8/8/2019 4:22 PM

Hello All- I am getting ready to swap on a Hinson ignition cover on my 18 KX450. I know you can lay a bike on its left side to pull the clutch without draining the oil, does it work on the other side to pull the ignition cover? I tried it on my dads ... more »

New thread Ohlins Revalve 4/16/2019 8:59 AM

Hello everyone, I recently installed a set of Ohlins fork inserts (new) and a Flow Shock (slightly used, from a vital member) on my ‘18 KX450. I love the action but both ends feel a bit soft overall (at 230 I’m a “bit” above the target demographic)... ... more »

New thread NBC Gold Video Player Question 1/5/2019 9:42 AM

Yes, I’ve read the other threads...might’ve missed it. Yesterday or the day before, the video player on the sports app (iPhone 8) had an option to expand the screen and an option to share with a TV-today all I have is closed captioning, and pause/play. ... more »

New thread KX450F right side lug (SFF TAC) 12/31/2018 10:47 AM

Happy New Year everyone! I’m about to swap in Ohlins inserts on my ‘18 KX450F. I’m thinking about getting the uppers ano’d for giggles and possibly the lugs hardcoated. I’d love to ditch the right fork lug to get rid of the balance chamber since it looks ... more »

New thread WTB Ohlins KX450F 10/24/2018 2:14 PM

I have an ‘18 KX450F and am done with the air forks. Seeing what’s out there for like-new Ohlins forks or inserts and shocks. I recall someone on here a couple months ago selling a set of forks and shock, don’t know if they sold or the ad just got buried. ... more »

New thread Tokyo Mods Good Experience 8/19/2018 10:44 PM

Hello all, Just wanted to give a shout out to Tokyo Mods and their remap service. I recent bought an 18 KX450F. From day 1, it started hard, stalled easily, popped on deceleration, ran hot, and had soft bottom end. After hearing about lean stock mapping ... more »

New thread 2018 KX450F mapping/running hot 7/23/2018 10:56 AM

Greetings, I have an ‘18 KX450F with 6.1 hours. Since day one, it started hard hot (even in neutral), likes to cough and die in tight turns, and runs hot. Really hot. Yesterday in 90-ish temps on a tighter track, I heard pinging off idle under load. ... more »

New thread 2018 KX450 SFF-TAC setting question 7/10/2018 1:12 PM

Hello all. I just picked up a new 2018 KX450F. Although I will be most likely picking up a spring conversion, I have to wait to do that for a couple months ($$$). Plus I wanted to ride the bike first to see what I like, don’t like, and to break it in ... more »

Hello all, I bought a new (leftover) 2018 KX450F last week. I just got done with the normal prep work and lit it off yesterday. I noticed that when I blip the throttle I hear a sound similar to what you expect a washer to make under vibration if you ... more »

New thread 02-07 CR250R plastic changes 3/17/2018 12:26 PM

Good afternoon, Had a question about changes in plastic between the 02 and the later CR250’s. I have an 02 and would like to update the front number plate and fender. I don’t like the new (ie 09-12 or 13-16) swaps at all. I’d like to just update to the ... more »

New thread YZ490 CL 3/10/2018 3:23 PM

Perusing CL locally (Seattle area) and ran across this. Price seems high but looks clean and original. No affiliation, just thought I’d pass along in case anyone was into these (I know they weren’t exactly popular, but you never know)... https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/mcy/d/yamaha-yz490/6521525108.html ... more »

New thread WTB Mikuni 6BEY30-76 needle 2/23/2018 3:06 PM

Hello all, I am looking for the above needle. It was sold as a two-steps leaner needle (stock is -74) by Honda for the 2002 CR250R Mikuni TMX. A few sites show “usually ships in...days” but it’s actually discontinued from what I understand. Sudco wouldn’t ... more »

Hello All, Doing some cleaning and ran across these. I thought someone might have interest for a resto or similar. Three KX250 silencers. Two are the same length and one is shorter. I am 99% sure the shorter is a 1998 and the others are 99 and 00. We

New thread Fuel Recommendation 1/24/2018 12:21 PM

No, this isn’t the ordinary “should I run race fuel” thread, lol... I am sending my 02 CR250R cylinder and head to PC for porting and head mods. In speaking with them, they recommend VP C12 for fuel, but said that they can tailor it (porting/head) to ... more »

New thread Replacement ECU connectors? 1/1/2018 6:53 PM

I am fixing up an ‘07 CRF450R for my Dad. The latch broke off one of the connectors that plugs into the ECU. The full harness is available for about 45.00, but it occurred to me that the connectors might be availble somewhere. Does anyone know somewhere ... more »

New thread 02/03 CR250R Vforce Reed Block 12/28/2017 8:16 PM

Hello all, I have an 02 CR250R that I just rebuilt. Will an 03/04 Vforce work as long as I use the 03 manifold too? Reason for asking is I have a NOS 03 manifold and my stock 02 one is hardened and probably an air leak waiting to happen, and you can’t ... more »

New thread 02 CR250R/Keihin PWK cable 12/2/2017 8:25 PM

Hello everyone, I got my 02 build done but I have a cable question. Is there an OE or motion pro cable that works with the PWK carb better than the stock cable? I found the stock one to be a touch short, so I tried running it down the right side of the ... more »
