Early rumors were it would not have a power valve. Though if it does they must redesign the 85 to include a powervalve!

They have been a sponsor of the Privateer Racing League for several years and Travis has been great to work with.

Added reply in a thread New Yamaha 2 strokes coming when? 12/8/2017 10:14 AM

They are selling every one they make. That's kind of the problem. Until sales drop you probably will not see a new YZ 125/250. Or they will just discontinue the YZ 125 and 250. There starting lines at amateur nationals are still filled with YZ's that ... more »

I just posted this in the 65 thread. According the Yamaha guys under the tent at Loretta's you will see a YZ65 and a redesigned 85 in 2019 or 2020. As far as the big bikes they are selling every 125 and 250 they make. So you probably will not see anything ... more »

I was asking about any possible new 2-strokes under the Yamaha tent at Loretta's. They told me the focus in the future would be the new 65 and 85 since they sell every 125 and 250 they currently make. You may see the new 65/85 in 2019 or 2020.

Did you sell the cylinder? Does it have the power valves? How much?

Where did did you see 17 kxf's for $4995?

Added reply in a thread what happened to the 2018 crf 250? 11/26/2017 8:54 PM

You are probably looking at ballpark $1500 to make the Honda on par with the KTM. The KTM MSRP is higher and though the magazines rave about the air forks all the local guys I know on 17 KTM's did the conversion kit or bought cone forks. I think it would ... more »

The faster guys that are looking for more power always end up modding the bike anyway. In my opinion you should build a 250f motor with a broad usable powerband for the general public. The KTM has a great motor on top but it lacks bottom end. The YZF ... more »

Thanks for the replies!

Started new thread TCX Boots - Opinions? 11/7/2017 3:46 PM

Has anyone tried the TCX boots? Just curious how they compare to Sidi, A-stars, etc. We have used Sidi for years and they are great boots but they seem to fit a narrow foot better. We were possibly looking to try another brand. I also like Gaerne but ... more »

They have a new 65 and I was told a redesigned 85. The 125 and the 250 will remain the same. They are selling all the 125 and 250 2-strokes they make so corporate sees no reason to change. This is what I was told at Loretta's from the guys under the ... more »

Started new thread Liam Everts on a Husky 10/29/2017 10:52 AM

It appears Liam Everts is riding a Husky 85. I guess since Factory Suzuki pulled out of racing it left Stefan unemployed? There was a rumor he was pushing Suzuki to bring back the RM 125 for his son. It was a long shot but I definitely don't see it happening ... more »

KTM may want to beef up the transmission gears. I know of several 16 and 16 125's and 250f's with broke trannys.

Last year we had a KX 109 built by Terry Varner and it was making 32hp. I had a friends JMS KX 109 for comparison and it had slightly better bottom but a little less over-rev. Most builders do not like making the KX a 112 due to the exhaust bridge. The ... more »

Our 16 KTM 125 with only 5hrs had loose inserts. I added some red loctite to get by until we sold it.

NO FEAR was originally a spinoff T-shirt Company from the old 80's Life's a Beach / Bad Boy Club. When baseball players and everyone you could think of started wearing the shirts etc.the brand lost it's image and the MX gear soon followed.
