if you poke around in the cheek pad area you will find that they have little tags indicating their size. my formula helmet has 35mm cheek pads , for example. There are sizes from at least 25mm to 40 mm on ebay @ about $20 I think

You got part of that right, my neighbors do despise my bikes.This has more to do with the fact that they are miserable old drunks than anything else. I do not drive an hour to ride, though.... ah the joys of owning property in the country. I ride very ... more »

I had some of those cool '89 Yamaha YZ shroud wing logos that I bought years ago before they were discontinued. Think I can find them now? wtf

or a person who does not like a silly new style of overpriced coat. One that looks like a burlap sack yet costs 50 percent more than a decent coat. A coat that keeps you warm for a half hour and then has to be removed and reheated for up for 10 hours ... more »

I neatly doubled a nice clean sock over and paced it above the head liner and this helped a lot.... the liners are sold in various sizes. it has 35mm cheek pads, etc. so I could go to 40 on those. But the actual head liner itsself is a little harder ... more »

oh, and if you like the 2014 style bike because you are tall, try the previous generation 09-11. fantastic bike for a larger rider. Not that you are likely looking to ride a ten year old bike, but a low hour 09 KX450F will run with anything out there ... more »

I rode KX450F's from the carb days until just last year, have had a bunch of them, probably 10+ bikes. almost all got 200+ hours on them and were incredibly reliable/absolutely bulletproof. If somebody tells a horror story about a KX450F, it is either ... more »

I don't HATE RMZ's , but I did for a while after my 06 RMZ450 blew up in exactly the same way the DirtRider magazine long term test bike did and numerous others as reported on thumpertalk. Apparently a run of soft/shitty big end crank pins...lots of ... more »

say what you want, but this is my favorite honda production color scheme ever . sure to piss some off!!

Reply to My picks for the best looking Honda Motocross bikes of all time 1/10/2019 8:36 AM

As far as production bikes are concerned, I was a fan back when they had a splash of blue....many years ago. Hondas from the last 20 years have been red and black. over and over. Man , the Honda color schemes got boring about 15 years ago and stayed ... more »

wow, thanks for the input. I suppose I will get the correct sprocket. Not the five pound steel primary drive sprocket lol... I honestly dont think this is a safety issue- more of an ovaled out and trashed mounting hole issue. That is what seems to be ... more »

can always tell when my rear shock is getting shitty...constantly adding more compression damping to compensate for the oil as it breaks down and turns into blackish grayish water
