GKR, don't mean to hijack your thread, but I have an HP 270 and had troubles since rebuilding top end w coolant in the head. Did you ever replace top end in yours and do you know what you used for head gasket? Cometic?

I know that this is a really old thread, but after rebuilding my top end I am having trouble with a leaky head. Have checked that the head is not warped, replaced water pump seals and rebuilt it 3 times now. Am thinking that I must have a head gasket ... more »

Muddy he makes it, not muddy he doesn't. Racing an AMA SX is a whole different animal, just ask the euro MX champs who have tried one off races. I just hope his big hairy balls don't get him seriously hurt.

Maybe in PA, come out west where there is stuff that can't be pedaled up, or long sandy sections. You sound like the type that also didn't like the Alta.

I use this one also and also recommend it. As colintrax said, its for emergency only, but has multiple antennas and because I spend a lot of time in the mountains and canyon country, signal availability/strength needs to be a concern.

Added reply in a thread Van life questions... 9/21/2019 7:44 PM

I've had both and prefer the truck and trailer. I found a trailer to be way more comfortable and once you get your campsite set up, if you want to drive off, you don't have to bundle everything up like the van. Plus for the money, you get way more w ... more »

Added reply in a thread 10 Year Neck Brace Study Results 9/10/2019 7:52 AM

The neck brace keeps the helmets edge from breaking it as its pushed against the bone during impact. I had 3 broken collarbones pre neck brace and none since....knock on wood.

I was that guy until buying a 2017 350. You should do it just because its fun to have all the new tech, buttons everywhere! Btw, you will be faster over an entire moto, and probably best lap.

Added reply in a thread Thinking of a 350, change my mind. 9/4/2019 6:25 PM

Its all about gearing on the 350, so gear it for what you are riding. The young guns that were riding them were going to 13t drive sprockets, helps to reach the peak power which still takes a ton of throttle. Black throttle cam is also a necessity. A ... more »

You need a Utah OHV permit, yes. In Arches there is an OHV trail, not sure the specifics if it is limited to certain types of vehicles. You can of course ride the Slick Rock trail from town, and many of the other OHV trails, though some limit 2 wheel ... more »

You could potentially do it at St. Anthony in Idaho, just outside of Idaho Falls and about 4 hours north of SLC. The parking/camping lot is paved and plenty big enough for pits and all roads in and out are paved. The weather can be hot and windy, but ... more »

You're dreaming, Alessi was never better than a top 10 SX guy in his prime. Hardly see how racing a 325 smoker changes that.

Since you're racing vet class, why not build a 270f? HP built me one with a 250 Sxf as the base, modded the head, RnD throttle body and Vortex ignition. On pump gas on Dereks dyno it put out almost 53 hp, and of course needs to be screamed to make that ... more »
