If Cody Gillmore doesnt know where he is, that's really concerning.... I REALLY hope he is ok ๐Ÿ˜ฆ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I read that their 144 is actually built specifically as 144 and supposedly is the best big bore small more engine available and way better than the ktm 150SX

Oh man, I really hope he turns up ok.....Denny is a truly unique charismatic one of a kind dude and while I'm not a prayer kind of guy, I am praying hes all good and makes contact soon, missing since Monday is a scary thing to hear.

Well it's a good thing these $10,000 bikes dont NEED that battery to start and run.....oh wait. People can talk all the garbage they want on others that still have a kick start and a carburetor but you wont see them having to call it a day due to a dead ... more ยป

Hey buddy .... you dont need to sell me on how good the bike is, I feel a lot of shootouts are popularity contests. E-start is noice but even if I got used to it, it would never cross my mind to think less of a bike that was kickstart only. Other than ... more ยป

How much more weight would you want to add to that RMZ450 platform though? Re-Start on that bike done with RMX cases would surely add 10+ lbs to what is the heaviest bike in the class or close to it.

Btw ....sorry I didnt mean to hijack the thread, back on track (no pun intended lol) Those are some beautiful RM125's and I think the 01 and up RM's are quite possibly the best looking dirtbikes ever designed and are still timeless.

Ridden every last gen japanese 125 except the Suzuki....what do you mean by the RM being the most 125ey? I almost bought an 03 KX125 but it was an official pile of super shit! The motor ran great though and dam it was fast for a 125. As far as that last ... more ยป

Put a modern kx250f engine with all the efi bells and whistles in a 2005 kx250f frame and you've still got a dam good bike. Ever hear anyone complain about anything other than mechanical failures on the 2005 kx250f? I get what you're saying but tell ... more ยป

"Genuine Progress" ..... in my opinion theres be hardly any progress made on bikes other than "fixing" the inherent flaws of the first few generations of the modern 4 stroke mx bikes. Even at first, the only thing that gave the 4 stroke a slight edge ... more ยป

With ALL the data and common shared knowledge out there these days, I find it impossible that ohlins cant get a decent sx spec. Unless it has to do with tube thickness and tapers

So I went and looked at it yesterday.... it was a COLOSSAL pile of shit!! Guy had the forks lowered but didnt know how the shop accomplished this and the seals looked to have been blown since the 90's and never fixed (yes I know it's a 2003 bike) Same ... more ยป

@chump6784 I disagree about the chain and sprockets and I'll tell you why ....... the lack of boot wear on the frame AND clutch cover. In my conversation with this guy he did not strike me as someone that would be "smart enough" to replace the c&s ... more ยป
