Added reply in a thread Best bang for the buck gear bag 7/2/2021 4:28 AM

Best bang for the buck? 13 gallon disposable kitchen trash bags. Toss your gear in and after the ride throw gear back in dirty, then use the bag for the kitchen trash can. Pull a clean, fresh one out for the next ride.

earlier Eco Boost suffer from timing chain issues; a $5K repair. Also warped exhaust manifolds are not uncommon, another high dollar trip.

Personally I wouldn't touch a Transit that is out of warranty unless it has lots of documentation on maintenance and had a killer low price. Eco Boost motors are awesome but they have flaws that can be very expensive to repair. I have a new 2020 and ... more »

Sorry, I don't agree with most here. Take one amateur track, mix in plenty of water, add four motos of pro riders and watch the beat down. Oh joy, they get to do the same thing next weekend. I'll bet Ironman can't come soon enough for these riders. For ... more »

I owned a brand new 1979 XR500R and raced it for one season (Enduro and Harescrambles). One of the worst bikes I ever owned. Of course sliding that motor into a real chassis and losing the 23" front wheel in the process will do wonders.

Ok some progress...if you can call it that. In the end I may have a paper thin tank or have to find another tank but I'm going to give this a shot. I upped my game by ditching the standard razor blade and got out a box knife blade.

Now we were ... more »

Picked up a mid 80's KDX fuel tank to restore. I've successfully brought back red, yellow and white plastic fuel tanks but this one has me stumped. The green plastic is very dark and has spots of black on it. Underneath you can see the correct color.
