Anyone else have this issue? Am I squeezing to much? Shit pants maybe? They are fox 2018 model. It’s really only the left knee. Squeezing to much? Bad form? I see 3 to 4 days of seat time a week with 3 or 4 motos on each day at 20-30 minutes each. I’ve tried Vaseline but just temporarily relives the slight burn.....Yeeet

Are you not wearing any knee protection?

Are you wearing knee brace or knee/shin guards?

I get chaffing really bad behind my knees from my pants riding up. If I open my boots after each moto, and pull the slack back down, I do not get chaffing.

Get some anti chafing gel. I used it for enduros and it works.

I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Moleskin sheets work for me, the glue residue is a pain to get off sometimes but it’s worth it.

Tall socks and knee protection, (shouldn’t be riding without braces or guards) knee cap to the bars, clutch perch or master cylinder will make your eyes water and limp for a couple days.

Never had a problem till I got my 2002 YZ250F. I ride pretty far forward on the bike and I'm 6'3". The shrouds on that bike were shredding my inner knee area. A bloody mess. I got some nice skateboarding knee pads to fit under my pants. A liberal dose of powder for everything from the waist down (I mean a fucking lot)...no more chaff. Magic I tell ya.

I just started riding Mx at 67...first day inside of knees were bruised and painful at end of day! So I tried some EVS TP199 regular not lite model knee guards...No more Pain plus love the support and protection!
Figured if Travis Pastrana designed Them ....
I’d give them a try..Glad I did!! Bike bandit had great price !

I’m not but just ordered a pair of knee brace/guards. I’ve also been making some decent gains on the bike so guessing that has something to do with it. Thanks.

Thank you for the tip. Ive never worn any knee protection because my speed has always been slower. Made some good gains on the bike this year so guessing my speed and form is improving along with some new knee chaffing. Just ordered knee pads. Will see how they do. Thanks again 👌🏻
