Added reply in a thread Fork air Pumps 9/4/2012 3:55 PM

In regards to the KYB PSF dont know if any pros are running them in the nationals. (Broc Tickle has been using Showa's air fork during supercross and now nationals) Come supercross season I strongly believe we will see the KYB PSF fork in action from ... more »

You should contact Factory Connection East Coast.

Added reply in a thread Leaking front brakes 8/24/2012 7:46 PM

OEM always fits and works well. Id recommend replacing the piston seals at the brake caliper and the master cylinder rebuild kit. Its good practice to disassemble the item though and inspect all the parts for wear. That way you only order parts once. ... more »

Added reply in a thread kx 250 suspension set up 8/23/2012 6:45 PM

2Strokeracer, For a 2000 Kawasaki KX250 and you weighing 150lbs (assuming casual cloths), then the stock springs are very close to your weight range. You are on the heavy side for the shock spring (I recommend a 5.0kg/mm, I think stock is 4.8ish) So ... more »

Added reply in a thread '01 CR250, modern suspension 8/20/2012 7:55 PM

Crash, Not sure if the forks and/or shock from a CRF would bolt directly on to your bike. May need the triple clamps also and some other parts to complete the retrofit..... Id advise to have your stock suspension sprung for your weight and revalved by ... more »

MX-Tech has a lot of experience doing KTM work along with innovative products like the Huck Valve (Speed Sensitive Bottoming Control). We use a lot of their products for all of our riders here in Arizona and have had great success with the KTMs. I recommend ... more »

Added reply in a thread Bike maintenance help 8/14/2012 2:04 AM

Sounds like you practice good maintenance on your bike. Good job. Since you dont know the complete bike history/running time and the bike is still running well then now is your best time to do engine maintenance. Instead of waiting for something to happen ... more »

Added reply in a thread Which is the best crank rebuild kit? 8/12/2012 8:58 PM

Companies like Crank Works will rebuild and balance your stock crank and replace all the wear components (including the rod), however it is often more than purchasing a new aftermarket crank. The difference though is Crank Works will balance your crank ... more »

From what I have been told, Merge Racing has a great setup for the Honda CRF450.

Added reply in a thread YZ125 Top End - OEM? 8/4/2012 7:50 PM

Exactly what Project Racer said above. Just replacing the top end and not measuring critical measurements is only doing half the service job correct. Get it measured, refer to your manual for the tolerances, and then order the right size piston (many ... more »

Added reply in a thread Airforks/shocks really working? 8/2/2012 2:06 PM

Like everything else there are pros and cons to things. The PSF fork by KYB features a "balance spring" and part of its function is to keep air pressure stable during temperature increase. It does so by creating more volume in the fork when appropriate. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Triple clamp off set kx450f 8/1/2012 7:25 PM

Austin, Your question probably hasn't been answered because there isn't exactly an easy way to explain it. Reason being, it is difficult to only explain that one area of chassis geometry (triple clamp offset) when changing it affects many other areas ... more »

Added reply in a thread DNA wheels and @#$! spokes 7/31/2012 9:36 PM

4StrokeDWN, I strongly recommend not using any locking compound on the spokes. Wheel builders and myself actually use anti sieze grease when lacing wheels. A locked up spoke wont allow you to adjust it if it stretches.
