Added reply in a thread Hands up if you liked the format 1/20/2018 9:58 PM

I liked the format but I think it should be 3x15 min races for the 450's and 3x12 min races for the 250's.

Added reply in a thread Who is stoked on the new format ? 1/20/2018 11:29 AM

I'm super pumped for it you know, but not pumped or anything. Should be a good night

Added reply in a thread How are KTMs so light? 1/17/2018 9:21 PM

I'd say softer metal that is lighter and breaks more often. God i can't wait to get off ktm 50's

Added reply in a thread A1 TV Ratings | Big growth 1/12/2018 6:54 PM

3 hours is way too long for the amount of actual racing. I was at my dad's place watching A1, he is a casual viewer but he was ready to dvr it and watch it later. I feel they should take a lead from what the aussie series does. Have heats, lcq and then ... more »

I signed up to our local cable provider through their online deal and received the first month free just for sx. I think i will cancel after the first month and just wait for the YouTube videos. There was more commercial time than race time

I miss the older style of the radiator shroud graphics running into the seat cover. Tomac's bike kind of does it but not the whole thing. Now the graphics just run to a solid colour seat

Added reply in a thread Old 2 strokes vs. New two strokes 1/5/2018 6:24 PM

The ktm was better in every way, more power, better brakes, better chassis, suspension was about equal. The newer generation ktm's are improved on the model I had and are supposed to feel more like a japanese bike. One drawback I found with the KTM though, ... more »

I went from an 07 RM250 to a 12 ktm250sx, the ktm was a better bike and the newer ones are better again. All that said I felt more comfortablein the RM, I never gelled with the ergo's of the ktm

Sorry, should have said most shootouts

CBM put up a post on their Facebook page the other day saying they will have their own website and hosting all the races live

Added reply in a thread Is husky ever going to branch off of ktm? 1/3/2018 3:43 PM

With ktm winning every shootout I'm not sure why they would move away. I think they look different enough and their motor, chassis and suspension get good reviews

Added reply in a thread Why I quit Oakley! 12/16/2017 7:00 PM

I used to run o frames, now run o2's and really like them. Can get them with a half mask. I heard the o frames were being replaced by the o2's. The o2's also fit over my glasses without needing to go to an otg goggle

Added reply in a thread Got it(steel frame yz)/ spoke with wallet 12/15/2017 12:21 AM

That thing is mint. My cases looked like that after 30 hours. It has original rear guard, graphics and bars. 2k is nothing for a bike in good condition. Buy it, throw a new piston in it and check out the engine while you are there and enjoy it

Added reply in a thread YZ65 12/14/2017 12:36 PM

I just can't believe it took yamaha or any Japanese mfg so long to come out with a new 65. I picked up a new 50sx for the daughter for Christmas and I'm so happy I have bought my last ktm. My son will get that at the end of next year and I will be buying ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2 stroke tear down/rebuild 12/11/2017 3:26 PM

My mechanic says the same thing, the YZ250's tend to break pistons and YZ125's are bulletproof. He told me I could go 30 hours safely on a cast piston but I'm far from pro speed.

Added reply in a thread 2012-2015 ktm sx 250 12/9/2017 10:00 PM

I just got my yz back from the guy who did the suspension on my last ktm and rm and i will say now, just get a yz. With the suspension done it turns in so much better and the forks on the ktm aren't even close. Throw a dep pipe on it, oversized front ... more »

Added reply in a thread Kick ass two strokes! 12/9/2017 9:28 PM

Let us know how the DEP goes. I already have the long DEP silencer on my bike, looking to add the pipe soon

Added reply in a thread 2 stroke tear down/rebuild 12/9/2017 8:42 PM

Gearing is pretty good for the tracks I ride on. The track I was riding on yesterday was really hard packed, kind of quarry based and I was able to hold 3rd gear pinned around flat corners that I usually had to look for a berm on. The tracks I ride on ... more »

Added reply in a thread Afraid of getting hurt... #vertriderproblems 12/9/2017 12:11 AM

It's like when you are driving down the highway and you see a pothole in the road and you stare at the pothole and tell yourself not to hit the pothole but you are so focused on the pothole that you drive straight into the pothole. If I'm out there just ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2 stroke tear down/rebuild 12/8/2017 11:33 PM

Rode the bike today with fww and tuned suspension and there was just a slight difference as it pulled onto the pipe. Instead of a snap it was more of a surge but in saying that the difference was slight. There was still plenty of snap to break the back ... more »
