You gotta hand it to the dude.

My guess is heat. Heat is bad.

Added reply in a thread Best privateer bike ever built? 9/8/2020 8:37 AM

If you're a true privateer, paying for everything yourself with no special access to parts / labor, a Yamaha 250F with Enzo suspension, GYTR head and high compression piston, aftermarket clutch, aftermarket exhaust, and race gas is probably pretty decent ... more »

Added reply in a thread What exactly does chain lube DO? 9/7/2020 1:06 PM

Well, the really thick lube seems to just attract dirt, and that seems worse than a dry chain? I like the Maxima stuff. I also make sure to clean the chain really well with Maxima chain cleaner when I wash my bike. I use the penetrating lube after I ... more »

Added reply in a thread Let it rev higher or lug and slip the clutch out of corners ? 9/7/2020 1:03 PM

It sounds like you need to use 2nd gear more. I have the best balance on my bike through turns when I am accelerating early, and have it revved pretty high. Sometimes that works in 2nd, sometimes 3rd. Get a LitPro, do half the moto revving, half lugging. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Lots of free advertising for Yamaha 9/7/2020 12:12 PM

Yeah, but it's also evident that the Honda corners better. But I get that HP is king in the 250 class. This isn't F1, where no one buys the product that is raced. People make buying decisions based on who is winning / what riders are saying about the ... more »

Started new thread Lots of free advertising for Yamaha 9/7/2020 11:32 AM

Every 250 rider who is not on a Yamaha keeps talking about how fast the Yamahas are. I get being honest, but I wouldn't be too happy if I was cutting their checks. Every rider is paid to talk up their own bike, but you know a bike is good when everyone ... more »

I’d wait till 2022 to get the Honda if you go red.

Added reply in a thread Any good photos of Masterpool's holeshot? 9/6/2020 3:37 PM

So awesome. I trained with the Masterpools when they were living at a track outside Reno. They are an incredible family. They fucking love moto.

Added reply in a thread 2020 yz250f oil change question 9/5/2020 10:46 AM

That’s the oil pressure check bolt. You should be fine. Maybe you just filled it a bit high and the pressure was high or you didn’t loosen the bolt enough and pressure built up. I’ve never checked the pressure on mine, but I’m only at 30 hours. Probably ... more »

Oil check bolt? Didn’t know we had one. I just put in the correct amount and check the sight glass.

Added reply in a thread Update: Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Suzuki test shared swappable electric motorcycle batteries 9/5/2020 4:49 AM

Well, depending on the power delivery, you might not need a clutch to get the bike to stand up when you need it to.

Added reply in a thread Apple Watch app for tracking lap times? 9/3/2020 3:20 PM

No, just use the XGPS with the LitPro app. I still track my heart rate and stuff on my apple watch while riding, but it does not sync with LitPro.

Added reply in a thread Apple Watch app for tracking lap times? 9/3/2020 1:10 PM

I used LitPro with the Polar Vantage. It worked really well for lap times. I much preferred my Apple Watch in general to the polar though, so I got the XGPS unit, which lets you use litpro to its full potential.

Agreed, Shift has always had clean stuff. Fox makes some great stuff. If you’re not a squid you won’t look like a squid.

Keefer said on the RMZ450 podcast that Shift is not done...
