Added reply in a thread Fractured T8 and T9. Would you keep riding? 3/6/2021 8:16 AM

Were you wearing a back protector? I’m curious if they help prevent or lessen that type of injury.

Added reply in a thread New Helmet Time 3/6/2021 8:11 AM

Yeah what would moto companies know about preventing moto injuries...I probably wouldn’t buy a race car helmet from a moto company.

I could do that or ship. $160 if I can drop it off and a little more if I ship.

I wouldn’t run it. I would talk to the dealer because that almost has to be a manufacturing defect and that engine probably has to be stripped down and checked.

I ran the AM race. Melted snow milkshake was the terrain outside of the sand. I was mad about the course layout around some of the mud holes and at a couple of points just wanted to go home, but at the end I was ready to race again.

How is the stall resistance of the KX? Is the throttle pretty responsive?

Are you sure they make that size? The Pirelli site shows there is a 100/90-19 and 110/90-19 only. I have the 110 and it is beefy.

I see Suzuki and Kawi have the 2nd injector standard. What benefit does it give?

Isn’t unsprung everything below the spring?

Added reply in a thread Coop on spring= 3 wins 2/22/2021 8:43 AM

I’m not sure the shock spring counts as unsprung weight.

No he was injured at an enduro (gaping wound apparently) a couple weeks ago and there is now some infection due to that. It looked like this thing was filmed at 10 frames per second. The recorded version was unwatchable for me on youtube.

The last three races he has had the speed too.

Your dad may be thinking you will outgrow an 85 in a year and he doesn’t want to drop the cash on a bike that he will need to replace in a year with a full size bike. Shred on the bike you have. It will make you a better rider because you are the suspension. ... more »

It’s definitely dominating the privateer 450 ranks. The lcq is practically all green. It looks like ktm dominates the bottom of the 250 East lcq.

The full wrap ones might be ok but I have a set of twisted flag mounts (and the screws) that say these aren’t good enough. I also had a clutch lever punch through the flag in a race and it took a while to pull it out. The ktm perch mounted are the best ... more »

There are zip ties that keep the handguard from folding back. Those break first.

Added reply in a thread Is 2019 CRF450 better than an 18 YZ250 2/20/2021 6:47 AM

Yamaha and Kawasaki are supposed to be the best for square edge bumps. Austrian bikes are supposed to be ok too but a little more work to get them that way depending on what fork is on them.

They use braketek in the enduro models (EC) but the cross country (EX) use Brembo.

Are KTM and GasGas plastic the same fit? I thought they were a little different.
