Added reply in a thread At My Wits End - 2002 RM125 Stutter 10/6/2017 1:31 PM

My wife's 04 RM125 came with FMF jetting and it was horrible, went to the jetting specs pro circuit recommend and it made a heap of difference.

Yep i notice the same here. The club i race at usually has close to 40 bikes in the 250 class, probably 1/4 to 1/3 of the class is 2 strokes and there a no ktm's. I had a 2012 250sx and didn't particularly like it. It was faster than my yz, cornered ... more »

I don't think either bike will get longer out of a piston ring than the other. 10-12 hours on rings, 20-25 hours on a piston for a regular rider is considered pretty standard regardless of brand. Do bottom end every 4 pistons, you should be good. Those ... more »

I second this. KTM to me is typically European in that they come with all of the trick parts and higher performance but lack in the Japanese build quality. Over the years I've owned kawi's, suzuki's, ktm's and yamaha's. The yamaha's feel the most solidly ... more »

You have a point. I don't do a lot on social media but your comment made me like both fullnoise and adb. I don't know how much advertising was done locally, i live 3 hours from each of those events but i don't know how much advertising went into attracting ... more »

When the teams are spending huge money on transporters there isn't much money to pay riders. There is next to no promotion here. I wanted to go to the echo valley round but missed it cos i didn't see anything about it. The series came down to the wire ... more »

I've always had good luck with pirelli mx extras. Good grip and good life.

When i first for the bike i rode it with stock settings, where i am now is where it feels best. The rebound on the yz is fairly fast stock, 4 out keeps it settled through chop and braking bumps where it used to deflect. Going to ring some shops and se ... more »

Any idea what spring rates to go? I have checked the race tech calculator, mx tech charts, q springs charts and teknik's calculator and they all give different numbers. Of all of them mx tech and q springs are the closest so i might start there

Yep, sag set at 100mm, static sag 30mm which is in the window for rear spring. Rebound set at 4 clicks out both ends. Started at stock and then went both in and out until I found the best setting. Lo speed Compression is 12 clicks out on the forks, 8 ... more »

I picked up a 2010 yz250 about a year ago. It was still on the original tyres and in really good condition. Since then I have been trying to get my suspension set up to where it lives up to the hype that I seem to read everywhere. It doesn't seem plush ... more »

That CR is so sexy in person, that photo doesn't do it justice. It has a Brembo front brake conversion and all. I was picking up my wife's yz and the cr was sitting next to it, I was drooling

Added reply in a thread 125cc 2 stroke starts 9/7/2017 3:21 AM

My wife had an 04 RM125, it came with jetting that fmf recommended, something like a 440 main. I ended up going with pro circuit jetting which was around a 360 main and leaner pilot too. It went much better. As for starts, I'm 187lbs without gear. Raced ... more »

The only way Reed rides a 2 stroke at MEC is a couple of laps throwing whips and nac nacs as a farewell from the sport

CDR had the biggest set up in the pits at coolum. Their truck is massive. Also the grids were full in the MX1, MX2 and women's class. Maybe other rounds had less turn out but coolum had a good rider turn out. I do agree though, teams could save a fortune ... more »
