Reply to Anyone Moto a 350 XCF? Compared to an SXF? 3/9/2018 4:57 AM

I have a 2017 FX350. 6' 225. It was a bit soft for me but I put the correct spring in the rear put some air in the front and I love it on the track. Plus it's a huge plus in the woods compared to my '14 YZ250F.

Miss timed??????? What video are some of you watching? He timed the first triple perfect. IT WAS NOT A TIMING ISSUE! What did blake have to say about it?

Zookie, I'm sure you know more than I do so I hope you're right. I would certainly think that Alta knows if they can get their bikes to under $10,000 OTD they are going to temp WAY more people to give it a shot. Putting "Harley" on the bike and charging ... more »

I hope you're right. Like I said. If we have to buy a "Harley" branded dirtbike most of us won't be willing to pay for the "Harley" name.

Reply to Is this good for Alta? (Harley Davidson Investment) 3/1/2018 5:41 AM

The next two models will be branded with the Harley Davidson name? That means we will now have to pay for that name that Harley is so proud of. I think my plans for one just got moved out of my price range. Plus I was a test rider for Harley and I swore ... more »

Caught only 5???????? They were too easy on them. Should have been tasers going off like the 4th of july.

I have an FX 350. Coming off a '14 YZ250F I don't feel AT ALL like its a disadvantage on the track. It's a BIG improvement in the woods though.

Reply to Husky/ktm maps and tc 2/21/2018 8:59 AM

Correct. Technically it doesn't sense "wheel spin" because that is illegal. It senses an abrupt increase in RPM that it "relates to wheel spin" and retards the timing. I think it helps in the woods and where its real slippery but if you're trying to ... more »

Reply to Husky/ktm maps and tc 2/21/2018 6:21 AM

I have a 2017 FX 350. I don't think that is correct. Map 2 is the more aggressive than map 1 but the TC is a monitoring system that senses when the rear wheel accelerates sharply "spins" and then retards the timing. On black top (or anywhere you would ... more »

Reply to Why can't they figure it out? 2/12/2018 6:15 AM

I guess I'm speaking mostly exhaust but then you see how "behind" Suzuki is in stock form. I'm sure Malcolms bike is far better than any stock KTM, Husky, Yamaha, etc. But yeah, especially now that exhausts are reaching that $1000 mark why can't Husky ... more »

Reply to RV wouldn't do it again 2/8/2018 8:41 AM

Ok. That's a good documentary. Pretty much explains it. I'm sure his comment was just that....a comment. If the choice was actually given I'm sure he would do it again. He probably didn't at the time realize or maybe still doesn't realize what a great ... more »

Reply to RV wouldn't do it again 2/8/2018 5:58 AM

Do tell what I missed. I have never heard a past champion sound like he regretted being a MX and SX Champion the way RV sounded. Why should I delete my post for asking? I'm a big RV fan, I'm just surprised while sitting on millions and never has to work ... more »

Reply to RV wouldn't do it again 2/8/2018 5:53 AM

I don't know about that. I have a feeling MC loved his. K-Dub loved his. RC loved his. CR obviously loves his.

Reply to RV wouldn't do it again 2/7/2018 8:33 AM

That's kind of what I got out of it 51xc. He didn't go into details but I gather a lot must of been going on that he didn't like. I just wasn't sure if it was with sponsors, kawi, (you have to wonder now), family, did he just not really like racing?

Reply to New Alta model 2/2/2018 10:52 AM

That's what I'm thinking. Everybody is asking about if you can "update" your bike when newer/better tech comes out with either the motor or "more than likely" battery. The problem is that the "update" of a new battery system is going to cost half of ... more »

Reply to New Alta model 2/2/2018 10:25 AM

Wonder how this thing is going to take a good crash. It definitely has my interest but how much would a replacement battery or motor be?

Reply to 2018 SXF 450 or FC 450 or CRF 450 2/1/2018 5:18 AM

How did you finish in that race BTW? I can tell by the excellent physique and perfect holeshot form of the Husky rider you were up against pros. LOL. So I guess that proves it. HONDA IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reply to 2018 SXF 450 or FC 450 or CRF 450 1/31/2018 8:25 AM

I'm 6' 220#. I went from a 14 YZ250F to a 17 FX350. I loved my YZ but never really got the front to feel "planted". Always felt like it wanted to push. I love the ergos of my new husky and front end feels awesome.
