Fly FR5 boots
Does anyone have any experience with the New Fly FR5 boots?
Anyone familiar with the Leatt 3DF Back Protector?
BTO has an unreal sale on these things, so I was wondering if it is something worth snagging before they're gone.  Normally $180, but with this sale from BTO YOU GET 2 FOR $40! 2013 model apparently, but still... https://www.btosports.com/p/leatt-back-protector-3df-2013
SENIOR DIRT RIDERS BLAB!
Okay guys and gals. Here we go with a thread for those riding toward senility---or maybe already there! I have some concerns about "slowing down", but will get into that later. Not in the mood for it tonight. Cj mentioned in the other thread about the bikes with much bigger engines than needed. I don't understand that either. Maybe it has to do with man's fascination with power. LOL--and if you put stickers all over your bike, it makes it even MORE powerful. Then put loud pipes on it and it becomes a REAL monster. Stupid thinking isn't it. Wait a minute--I just had a flashback. Okay, Let's change the subject. Who's next?

Broken Fibula (lateral malleolus)
Hey all, been a while since I’ve been on the forums. Broke my ankle while riding almost 3 weeks ago, right fibula just above the lateral malleolus. I was put in a cast 15 days ago. Doc said surgery wasn’t needed due to some of the tendons not being damaged, so 6 weeks in a cast and back to walking. I have virtually no pain in my foot anymore and only slight swelling if I’m up and on my crutches all day, I’m getting sick of having this thing on my leg though and already have an itch to get back on my bike. Has anyone had a similar break and how long did it take to recover after the cast came off? I’m 21, live a very active lifestyle, and eat fairly healthy. I’ve been wiggling my toes and foot as much as possible and trying to do lots of exercising, both for my upper body and leg that has the cast. Just getting anxious to get back on a bike and would hate to be out another 6-10 weeks after the cast comes off. Thanks.

GSXR quad has no spark after I welded on the frame
I have a 2004 gsxr 600 motor in a yfz 450 frame and the motor has no spark. I’ve welded on the frame before without disconnecting any of the electronics without problems, and I’ve started it after that. But this time I fried something. The speedo and the taco work, and the engine turns over, and I hear the fuel pump priming, but after pulling the plugs out and testing them, they don’t work, even with a different plug. I’m thinking I should try new plugs because the one I tested it with wasn’t the right kind, but I don’t think that would make a difference. (By testing it I mean I just hooked up the plug and turned the motor over to look for spark). What could I have fried and what should I do?
Future of Sport ATV Racing with limited 450 options.
Hi All, Looking at the current ATV offroad racing world, the 450 class still leads the way.  With Yamaha being the only manufacturer currently offering a 450cc sport racing ATV, how long till racing starts taking a hit.  I haven't heard any rumors of any of the other manufacturers getting back into the game.  Without an influx of new technology and new ATV's to purchase, I feel that its only a matter of time until the big series' (GNCC) start taking a hit.  There are only so many 450's out there and keeping them up and running especially for the rough running of an offroad series seems like it would be a losing battle.  Props to Yamaha for keeping the segment alive for now.  It just bothers me when there is literally only one player if you want to buy a new machine. Do you guys feel that sport ATV racing is on the way out?  Do you guys anticipate a rebound with manufactures getting back into the field?  Is it just a matter of time till sport ATV racing is done, and everything has moved onto SXS racing?  
2006 HONDA RANCHER 350 ES HEADLIGHTS NO WORK ONLY STARTS WITH BRAKES APPLIED
So this is a strange one, I have searched the interweb and found no definite answer other than some sort of wire grounding possibly, maybe.  Quad will only start with magic button if rear brake and one of the hand brakes are applied.  I have looked over most of the wires and found no breaks or worn spots, unpluged and reconnected all the connectors.  Has anyone dealt with this? any specific spots to look.  Trying to find the correct wiring diagram too if you have seen it somewhere.

Anyway to block forum members??
Is it possible to block certain members so you don't have to see anything they post/reply to? I really hope so.

After receiving and reading-replying to messages how do I delete them.
App is bugging out
Hey guys this thing is acting up. I think it’s running rich, it bogs, loads up, and is spooging.....   Seriously though, on the mobile app I’m having an issue where it double posts and loads slow in one specific thread. This has been happening for about 10 or so days now. And whenever I post in that thread it never loads all the way, and then sends me a post error message, by the post still ends up being there.
