Added reply in a thread 450 back to 2 stroke 8/3/2020 8:41 PM

That last sentence almost gave me chills. It's the perfect description. And yeah, all my serious injuries came on a 450. They can make you feel like a hero one minute and the next minute you are busted up and having someone load up your bike.

I'm 6'2" and about 215 - 220lbs. My last 5 bikes (in chronological order) were: 06' YZ250 08' CRF450 16' KX450 07' YZ250 09' YZ250 If your son wants to go back to a 2-stroke, my advice is to adjust expectations. At the World Vets last year I got great

I could be wrong but I thought Blake had a lot of money invested in the heavy equipment too. I'm thinking a) sale price includes equipment, b) some heavy equipment is imminently going up for sale, or c) this is all BS and he ain't selling anything.

I'm trying to think of another dirt bike design that went unchanged this long, while maintaining profitability and being so well liked. The XR600 perhaps? It doesn't happen often.

Added reply in a thread KTM 250sx 7/29/2020 8:22 AM

Is Yamaha trying to compete with KTM or are they just (successfully) catering to a particular demographic? Seems to me they wouldn't still be offering a YZ250 if it wasn't profitable. All of these YZ vs KTM threads seem to go like this: Y: I like my ... more »

I'm just bitter because I called on a 2018 250sx last week and was gonna go look at it. Dude went MIA and by the end of the weekend the ad was gone. I need to get ready for a big trip so at that point I had no choice but to put all my efforts into sprucing

OK Gotcha. I remember the short-lived Saddleback revival. Never been there though. No lake there though right? They photoshopped that in?

Is that photo of Stew and Yogi at Piru MX?

Added reply in a thread Please Help! ‘13 YZ250 question 7/23/2020 8:47 AM

For what it's worth.....I put 09' YZ450 clamps (top and bottom) on my 07' YZ250. I had to swap out the stem to make this work. The stems were not the same length. Can't speak to the late model stuff though. Just something to think about. (the purpose ... more »

So "he pissed off every team in Europe" is code for "he missed his window due to injury"??? I'm just trying to understand if there was drama or he simply didn't live up to his potential.

Care to elaborate? Inquiring minds want to know.

Added reply in a thread Lectron Fuel Systems 7/14/2020 4:38 PM

Nice! I noticed that even on the used bike market, the SX models are much cheaper than the XC and XC-W models. Much lighter too. It has certainly crossed my mind to take this approach if/when I decide to go orange. I was wondering if that was the case ... more »

I'm curious why you opted for the SX if you are a self proclaimed off-road guy.

Gotcha. Is the translucent TPI tank any larger than what the "equivalent" black SX tank would be? Where I'm going with these questions is that KTM has done a good job making bigger tanks that don't stick up real high. As a result, for short local race
