Reply to '12 KX450? 8/25/2021 9:48 PM

The best mod you can do to a 12 KX450F is a 13 intake cam. In 12 (12 only) they decided to add some lift to the intake cam. I did not like the effect on the power delivery at all . Yes, it was fast, but so were the previous with slightly less lift. I ... more »

Reply to Hadn’t Been To A National In Two Years. Sooo, I Took Several Photographs… 8/22/2021 7:07 PM

Love it. I had not been to a national since I don't know when. 2013 maybe? 2014? Made it to Unadilla last week....my reaction was similar to your reaction @ Budds Creek, it was just killler and a thrill to be there. Gate fee was painful.

Most people who work in charlotte would be looking at Fort Mill, Indian Land, Rock Hill, etc. take a peek at a map of NC/SC and pick anything over the SC line

Badly congested interstates, beltway which everyone uses to get to and from the rat race. I will give them credit for plugging away at it- Interstate 85 to the north has been widened in a ten-ish year long project and does better. Still a nightmare to ... more »

someone say Buell? I have this XB12X ....love it. It is a strange animal when used to Japanese/Euro bikes, for sure. Lots of character, not slow. and oil tight lol

1200XE...the baddest retro/modern scrambler out there!!

Reply to Kailub Russell calling it quits 7/20/2021 9:36 AM

Kailub is hard on himself, I really think the pre season bang up set him back a great deal. I have seen him at GNCC's many times, dude is a legend. He went into this deal at far less than 100 percent.

Paradise? you mean Mooresville? LOL. that is NOT paradise. I go by the lake in the summer and it looks like a mall parking lot , only boats instead of cars. a zilion people, everywhere. Charlotte/mooresville/etc are all on my "no go" list. I avoid urban ... more »

Charlotte is a badly congested, extremely hot place. Consider that.

The Yamaha clutch is awesome. I hope Yamaha does not jump on the (useless, unnecessary) hydraulic clutch bandwagon

Except that the Busa is not all new. Not even close. It has new bodywork and is now Euro 5 compliant It has all the electronic crap that people want. It also has the same 1340cc engine that kawasaki rendered irrelevant in 2012 with their 1441cc ZX14 ... more »

I had the latest generation YZ250 and 125....sixteen years ago. Loved them. Do I want to live the rest of my life in 2005? no. I cannot imagine allowing my enthusiasm and interest in bikes to stagnate that long....

Ah you two stroke Yamaha guys. Bless your hearts. Like Charlie Brown running to kick the football over and over.... It ain't happening....not from Japan. Why not just forget Japan and reward the Euro companies who are actually building what you want?? ... more »

The WXC speed has picked up a great deal since it's inception. They usually overall. I am sure Sipes will win by about 5 min if he takes it seriously and does not plow into any of the 800 C riders on the track ,though

LOOL. you just nailed it. That is exactly where this took place. The wait between sessions is closer to two hours. Then there is the random half hour track maintenance ....during the middle of a practice day. I said IM DONE

Without reading the entire thread, I can say that I live in NC and have not raced motocross since my central NY days, back in the 90's to early 2000's, when upstate NY motocross was going big! and what a riot it was. I moved to NC 16 yrs ago and immediately ... more »
