That is simply a baseless assumption. The anecdotal evidence from thousands of riders who have been using Rotella for decades would yield clear signals to support this. The collective knowledge and experience of these riders proves this is not accurate. ... more »

Added reply in a thread KTM 300 kit worse for MX - recommendations? 10/13/2018 3:15 PM

Good on you for realizing the 300 is not a good MX modification. The 250 more free-revving nature is generally much preferred for motocross to ensure you have the top end needed to clear jumps. Personally, I would not go with a Lectron either as it too ... more »

Good perspective, you win. Now back to the regularly scheduled program. Unless you enjoy pissing away $$$, Rotella has been successfully used for years for a fraction of the cost. My 11 250 with over 200+ hours and my 150 with 100+ are going strong, ... more »

Oh my, get a clue or at least a calculator. The difference between 2 and 5 gallons is.. .wait for it....3! 3 gallons at 6.3 lbs per gallon is....wait for it...18.9lbs. MXA is about spot on with the analogy

ACL surgery (Cadaver) on August 4th and strangely I had zero pain 48 hours after surgery and came off my meds after 48 hours as well. I did go back the day after for an additional 24 hour nerve block to avoid what I assumed was going to be high level ... more »

Perfect, you adapted nicely and if you're fine with it then that's all that matters. If you don't think or feel the short 2nd gear is an issue, then cool. I'm glad you love the bike, I think it's a major flaw and won't upgrade until it's addressed. Put ... more »

I did for a couple of years, but was not thrilled with wear. Moved to Yamaha 2R and ever since my top end wear was vastly improved. Originally I used motorex and it was by far the least effective. From real world use, I swear by 2R

Spot on, that's the exact worst scenario and it's a very common on many tighter tracks. 2t's already have much less over-rev than a 4t, and when you add in poor gearing spacing it make this issue more pronounced

Nope, 1st gear should be used in the pits only or to get out of a tough spot when trail riding. If you find yourself using 1st gear, you may want to gear your bike lower.

Hey Jeff, Kudos for racing the 2t in the nationals, mad props. I'm a 47 year old vet weekend warrior who spent my early 40's racing (30+, 35+, 40+) Daytona's, Muddy Creek's, WW Ranch, SOB and various LL area and regional qualifiers and now I sometime ... more »

I will bet you that when flaws are properly addressed, MXA will be more forceful in how much of an improvement the next bike is over the current model. They are clearly being somewhat diplomatic in claiming how the poor gearing, less power, and less ... more »

Well then, it's very clear he's much "faster" than I am. This weekend vet B-ish 40+ rider may have far less racing experience. Not saying anything negative about Jeff (I don't know him anything about him), but I've seen and listened to other very fast ... more »

I agree about the Lectron, it is a overhyped but a viable solution in this case. If it was really that good, I would have one on my bike. You may want to keep an open mind before you make random assumptions. I have two close friends with new gen bikes ... more »
