Added reply in a thread WA mx and ORV areas closed as of 8/24 8/21/2020 6:53 AM

I’m confused by the wording....it doesn’t state tracks are closed...just “no events” I don’t know if a track just being open for a practice day would be considered an event? But surely something like Devols Top Gun coming up Labor Day weekend is an event.... ... more »

Man that brings back some great memories for guys our age. What a killer era to have raced 80s. Huge classes back then no matter where you grew up or if you were a 80 Beginner or Intermediate...I got the 87 YZ for Christmas in 88 as a new leftover. Stared

Cool shot Ping, I’ll post that in some NW groups and see if the other guys can be identified. Pretty sure 94 was the last year that start was used.

You better check with your wife...she probably has some Pinterest projects you should be working on instead of effing around online looking for more Suzuki projects.

Let’s be real....unfortunately we’d have a hard time getting a team to France in a world without Covid. There’s no chance the US is going to not race Nationals and still send 3 guys to the U.K. in September that haven’t done a outdoor race in a year. ... more »

Just joined the forums after seeing one of your posts about your restored 1995 KTM.
I myself have a 1994, and was wondering if you'd be able to give me any pointers with finding parts, it'd really be appreciated, as I've never done a rebuild before.

Added reply in a thread When was the RM85 last updated? 6/10/2020 7:25 PM

They rip and are a great 85 for any kid to learn to go fast on. Everyone seems so hung up on new plastic...but you can find super clean RMs for around 1k while comparative used YZs runs twice that and a used KTM is 3 times the money. The motor is still ... more »

Added reply in a thread Gaerne, New Old Boots GMX Mach 80 6/9/2020 10:22 AM

Cool...but those buckles always sucked to actually get tight enough to support your ankle. Long time Gaerne wearer and into VMX...with the 80s era being more popular now that the 70s I’d love to see something like this but with the modern Gaerne sole

Added reply in a thread Rm250 pro circuit r304 not lining up 5/16/2020 8:41 PM

I think some of the issues you guys are running in to is that in 07 Suzuki changed silencers and the right side panel for all of the world except the USA. The US bikes kept the old parts. I know at UFO we had to make a new right side panel for everywhere ... more »

Added reply in a thread Husky 1995 5/6/2020 1:20 PM

If you do Facebook you can get a lot of help in the “Cagiva WMX” and “Italian Husqvarna” groups. That last photo is a MX version which is rare. I believe in ‘95 only the enduro models were imported to the US. Also check out cafehusky if it’s still going ... more »

Added reply in a thread Champion on worst bike 5/3/2020 9:48 PM

.Glover on the 490. Emig in 92 when you consider the production YZ 125 was slower than some 80s. Also Preston in 02...the CR 125 was bottom of the class in the 00s. Just shows that these teams did a good job and it’s not about the bike in Moto.

The difference I’ve found is that if a Moto collector guy is selling stuff he wants 150 for an old pair of Sinisalo pants....but if an x wife is cleaning out a closet the same pants are 15 dollars!!
