Looks like you have some detonation going on also, I'd cut your fuel with some race gas to try to get 96 to 98 octane minimum.

Yes, 2 strokes reeds, 4 strokes valves.

Added reply in a thread HRC Honda releases statement on Cole Seely's Shock Failure at MXoN 10/5/2017 7:46 PM

Monday morning quarterbacks all over this post. So what they are saying, is if a part fails on my motorcycle, chain, bars, forks, shock, tires, tubes, throw it out completly and never install the same part again? If I have a Dunlop tube in my bike and ... more »

Added reply in a thread Honda hub help 12/26/2016 9:03 PM

Its a Warp 9 cast hub, or I'm almost positive it is. A few years ago they sold cast hubs for Hondas and Yamahas but no longer do. Maybe call those guys.

You can buy some higher end components for less money. I know some guys love to buy everything OEM, even OEM inner tubes and spark plugs, but do some research and save yourself some money, and you'll get better stuff. Everything from your crankshaft ... more »

Added reply in a thread Kx clutch basket removal trouble 11/21/2016 9:29 PM

Use a propane torch from Walmart, Kawi clutch basket nuts have some crazy locktite, heat gun might not do it. You might have to buy or borrow a better impact gun. Make sure to leave all the clutch plates in to help hold it.

No, crank in the adjustable slave cylinder then bump start it. Then turn it back out after you get it started.

Added reply in a thread factory teams running throttle return cables? 3/7/2014 9:20 PM

You got it, LIABILITY. Let say without a return cable, you have .01% chance of having a sticky throttle, would you do it? If you have a return cable you have zero. (All things equal, no crashing, no dirt, cables adjusted correctly, ect....). You fools ... more »

Added reply in a thread factory teams running throttle return cables? 3/6/2014 7:52 PM

Those four strokes flow soooooo much air if you don't have a return cable it ups the chances of the throttle sticking or hanging up. As the vitards say.....STAMP IT.

Might want to double check it (google) but I think the S1 is 5wt.

Added reply in a thread 2000 Cr 250 Horrible Suspension 2/12/2014 9:38 PM

A cheap fix would be change your pressure springs (not the big ones). The control most of the smaller little choppy stuff. Stock rate is maybe (2.0 or 2.1?) Put in some 1.8 or 1.6 and it will make a HUUUUGE difference. Or like Jeremy stated above, a ... more »

Added reply in a thread Mika Chains 2/7/2014 10:07 PM

My apologies lostboy, but your last post is nuts. You have a problem with a company claiming there product is better than everything on the market? That is what most advertisers ADVERITISE. Have you every watched TV or listened to the Radio?

Added reply in a thread Mika Chains 2/7/2014 9:58 PM

Lostboy, there's maybe 5 or 6 high end motorcycle chain mfgs, and they produce a good percentage of the chains on the market and get rebranded under a different retail name. Would you run a DID, EK, RK, Tsubaki, or Regina? Are you sure that Mika is not ... more »

Added reply in a thread The Most Fascinating Topic In Motorsports: Moto-X Advertising 2/5/2014 9:11 PM

I like your idea, but on the downside I'm not sure if it's always about logo size and placement. Although it would help to get double, triple or more when you're talking logo size, sometimes it's just what the market (MX and SX) can pay. Look at bull ... more »

Good post.

Added reply in a thread Renthal Chains? 1/28/2014 10:00 PM

Renthals are Regina chains in a Renthal box, I think it's an ORN or ORS series chain, and yes, they are great chains. Someone my need to correct me, but I think the stock chain on your RMZ is a DID X-ring sealed chain and a great one at that. DID does ... more »

Added reply in a thread Vertex vs. Wiseco pistons? 1/28/2014 9:55 PM

Sorry rcannon, it does matter. At least if you don't want that piston to slap and prematurely break the skirt. If you put an "A" piston in a clapped out cylinder, you get more slap, more wear, and yes, it's noticeable wear. Ask any experienced engine ... more »
