Not sure, I know Honda was making a lot 2020 Ridgelines in Alabama until that plant got shut down.

Right, totally reasonable to expect delays of the 2021 models and limited 2020 models in the meantime. Totally insane to think they’d not make the 2021 when it won’t cost them anything extra, compared to making the 2020, to do so.

You really think Honda, who is racing the 2021 450 already, and already has the manufacturing dialed to mass produce it, thinks it’s in their financial interest to not hit the go button? That’s insane. I do bet that that 2022 and 2023 models won’t have ... more »

I’m no expert but I assume the 2021 models are finalized already. If anything you’ll see sparse stock of 2020 models. This is what’s occurring with Honda automobiles.

I have the side number plates and they work with stock template graphics. The front number plate is obviously different, though.

Yes, I am mostly interested because I have the YZ250F.

Saw this over at MXA:

They claim that with this and the Twin Air Powerflow, they are getting 2 extra HP. Is this any better than just drilling some small holes in the top of of the airbox cover? I saw some GP bikes with holes in the cover, ... more »

I agree with Ping here. There’s no good evidence knee braces prevent ligament tears. Of course, it would be nice to have more data. Given no evidence for a benefit I lean towards the Ryno idea of maximizing your range of motion so you can have proper ... more »

Been hammering YZ250Fs since 2005, all have been reliable and great bikes, except that streak where they still had carbs and everything else was fuel injected. I had a 2012 KX250F at that point, and that bike was pretty great. But the best bike I have ... more »

Next time go ride it yourself and just stay off the rev limiter and don’t lug it too much (so, ride it normally) and have some fun.

It was a joke, mostly. They should make one! It would probably make them money. I’ll never buy it, though, as I explained in a less sarcastic manner above.

Added reply in a thread Yamaha - Please make YZ350FX 4/2/2020 10:51 AM

Yeah, I sort of agree. Either twist the throttle on the 250 harder, or learn to ride a 450 well. I am all for more options from manufacturers, but I think the 250 is plenty powerful for anyone under 175 pounds. If you are over 175, you should be strong ... more »
