I like Pirelli MX32 mid soft and mid hard for summer.

Stupid move on Sextons part.

For old time's sake, STFU Newbie!

Added reply in a thread Tired of backgrounds, who can do just my 3 digit # 6/14/2020 12:27 PM

You will spend $21 to $42 on three pack single numbers. Better to order plain no frills backgrounds and cut out numbers or get some like the pro numbers above.

VMX would be a good choice. Vintage Iron used to be, but I think they are doing restorations only because I didn't see any parts for sale on their website. AMS Racing is another one I forgot.

Here is mine, maybe some you need.

Added reply in a thread 2020.5 Factory Edition muffler Baffles got me BAFFLED! 6/10/2020 10:34 AM

Agree 100%! I have a 2019 Husky Rockstar 450 that came with an FMF muffler. I came across a stock 19 muffler and headpipe for $100 I thought would be good for a spare (the headpipe was worth more than that). I removed the cone baffle from the stock 19 ... more »

Closed end in the direction of rotation. The picture is on the bottom run of the chain.

I won't be sure on the new Honda's weight until someone throws the production bike on a scale.

Nice catch on the Hill "digger"!

Don't mess with the compression until you get the zip tie to 1 1/2 inch or so from bottoming. Then adjust the compression to get the feel you want entering corners.

Added reply in a thread KTM axle blocks 6/8/2020 5:19 PM

Like Luxon said, the linkage makes a huge difference! I had N2D do my shock and along with their link, it is much better. Like I said on the Ride axle blocks and Honda axle I have, it is better to adjust because you can see the marks along with the extended ... more »

Added reply in a thread Help! Valve gasket or Cylinder Gasket? 6/8/2020 8:57 AM

Also check your intake boot for cracks and the bands for tightness. I've seen some of those leak and when dirt sticks to it, it looks like the photo. It might also explain it running warmer if it is leaning out with an air leak.

Added reply in a thread Help! Valve gasket or Cylinder Gasket? 6/8/2020 8:54 AM

I'm with kb228, it looks like it is coming from the valve cover gasket. Clean it up and watch where it is coming from on your next ride. It's not leaking enough to get low on oil, but still keep a check on it.

Added reply in a thread KTM axle blocks 6/8/2020 8:50 AM

I have the ones from Ride Engineering that uses the Honda axle. I really couldn't feel any difference, but it is much easier to adjust and it had a locking axle nut. Keefer swears there is a difference, but he is much better at noticing than me.

Added reply in a thread Will the 2021 KTM Factory Edition be a new model? 6/5/2020 9:48 AM

According to ML512 (and he is usually in the know) the 2021.5 FE won't be much different.

Added reply in a thread Martin Davalos 6/5/2020 7:45 AM

I was being sarcastic because most that follow moto/SX know he rode the 250s for many years. He kept a paycheck coming in, so why try to belittle him?

For real?

Added reply in a thread Keep or Sell? 6/5/2020 6:52 AM

Start it up and look in the tank for fuel bubbling. There was a bad run of in-tank filters that were cracking at the seam and causing lost fuel pressure. If it is cracked, the fuel will bubble when it is running. Mind did it and it caused hard starting, ... more »
