Thanks! Almost... the shock lengths are identical. However the area above the upper shock mount is much beefier on the KYB compared to the stock Showa. As a result the KYB just fouled on the upper shock mount, and contacted the tube that the subframe ... more »

lcgordon - Just to add re assurance, you can 100% trust what digger (and Digger29) is saying. digger is a very knowledgeable guy and helped me out a ton with jetting a while ago for my RM250. Squish wise - my 08 was 1.38mm stock, I dropped it down to ... more »

Nooo no no. I put the KYB's back in for the photos

They're just too damn pretty to leave off the bike. The KYB's are set up for MX and the stock Showas have been revalved for Enduro. I didn't want to make the RM just an Enduro bike, as its ... more »

Added reply in a thread Boots for injured ankle, SG12 / tech 7 2/19/2018 4:11 AM

SG12 100%. A really great boot, I wont buy another brand now since switching to Gaerne. I'm on my 2nd set but they last ages and don't go loose even after 2 seasons use.

First round of the Rock Oil Hare and Hound championship yesterday at Wymeswold. Based on a motocross track and then using the surrounding fields. Around 6 miles per lap. The track section was super wet with lots of standing water. The field sections

Yep good show as always. It seemed bigger and busier to me this year? Always a good sign. I scored some good parts for the 89 RM250, kickstarter gear assembly and a complete gearbox assembly for £45. Will save me some money! Also got a Race Tech gold ... more »

Added reply in a thread Drill holes in rmz Airbox 2/19/2018 12:01 AM

The RMZ air filter comes cage comes stock with a fairly fine metal mesh across it. For what reason I have no idea! The RM250 uses the same size and shape filter cage but does not have the mesh, allowing for better air flow. A quick and simple mod that ... more »

This is such a clean bike.

Awesome bike. Super clean! Doesn't look like its done a lot, you did well there. Interested to see how you like the steering damper? Have you ridden it with and without it to compare?

Added reply in a thread RM125..to buy or not to buy 2/16/2018 2:21 AM

Yeah that is a no brainer, I had an 03 and it was a good bike> Yeah the 04 onwards is better, but that thing is too clean to turn down. It's still a cracking bike. That stinger tip silencer is cool af too!

No problem, thanks for the kind words! The G2 throttle cam is highly recommended. Gives you that extra throttle control in the first half of the throttle turn. The 2 cam options give you tunability to get the power delivery you desire, then if you want ... more »

Front wheel spacers are identical on the RM either side. Remove the front mudguard and sit on the bike. You can see fairly easily if the front wheel isn't square to the bars. On a side note, with regards to the bar mount. Remove the top bar clamp and ... more »

I've always thought the same. 50 hours on my 15 RMZ450 and not experienced clutch fade once. It did drag from new however. Simple fix though, I removed the judder spring and spacer, drilled the hub in the same pattern as a Hinson and had some clutch ... more »
