Started new thread Dry, slippery track, short lap times, no fans... 5/31/2020 5:35 PM

Did I just watch an AMA Supercross, or a fair race? Even if no one is there, Ralph should at least light the candles for us.

Getting the spring rate correct is key. Call Factory Connection. Their spring rate recommendation was quite a bit stiffer than what the Race Tech calculator called for, and I’m very pleased. There were 1200 entries at Lincoln Trail last weekend, and ... more »

I bought the TM designs plastic skid plate at the same time I got my Slide and Guide kit. I’m extremely happy with everything I’ve ever purchased from TM Designs. It is a crazy high density plastic that lasts forever.

Read my rates. Quite a bit higher than what you are mentioning.

I’m 6’3” and 215 w/o gear. Vet B MX. I run 2 .53 springs. Didn’t mess with the oil level. I’m very happy with the suspension performance. As tall and heavy as you are, you will likely benefit from a stiffer shock spring. I’m running a 6.1. I came up ... more »

Red Bud was charging $50 last time, too. A bargain if you ask me!

Added reply in a thread Beta 430 Motocross Bike 5/28/2020 8:26 AM

They turned the Beta into an extremely expensive MOTOCROSS bike, so it needs to be compared with MOTOCROSS bikes, not other corked up trail bikes. When compared to MOTOCROSS bikes, it is a turd. As we all know, in the hands of a skilled rider, even a ... more »

Added reply in a thread Beta 430 Motocross Bike 5/28/2020 6:02 AM

While I can appreciate the athlete’s ability in the video and the effort that went into the build, I’m curious as to why someone would bother to take a top tier $11,000 trail bike and spend more money to turn it into a slow motocross bike.

They didn’t cut laps. That’s why they made the call to do first motos on Sunday, and second motos on Monday. I had 4 laps in all 4 of my motos. As rough as it was, 4 laps was more than enough for me. If they cut laps, it must have been for the consi ... more »

Jake Gagne, who isn’t 1/100th as accomplished as Marquez in road racing, qualified for an AMA national on a whim just to try it. Talent is talent, and there are many that would argue that Marc is the most talented road racer of all time.

Added reply in a thread Opinions on Running VP T4 fuel on a bran new stock 450? Is it worth it? 5/22/2020 6:49 AM

My 2017 CRF 450 would detonate a bit on hot days under heavy load when running 93 octane pump. I found a place locally where I could buy 110 octane unleaded from the pump and mixed it 50/50 with the 93 pump gas. That solved my problem. Now I’m on a 2019 ... more »

No possible way they can socially distance everyone at Loretta’s. If they pull off the “Super Regionals” (and that’s a big if) you might be qualifying for a race that can’t happen. I hope I’m wrong.

Sounds like the best bet is to just stick with the stock muffler. That’ll leave me with more money for new tires.

Added reply in a thread Clutch is super stiff. Suggestion on what to buy to fix it. 5/13/2020 11:50 AM

Check the routing on the cable. If you installed a new cable on a 125, there is no way it should be hard to pull.
