Wow,really cool to stumble across this video. Went to high school with him in Torrance. Didn't get to know him real well then but we had some mutual friends and we all dreamed of becoming MX stars......Danny actually did it!! Real fun following his career and hope to run into him one day. Thanks FMF and cheers to you Danny.......

      Hi, I am 13 years old and I am trying to decide what bike I want to get (two stroke of course). I'm 5'2 - 5'3 tall, and I weigh 125lbs.  I'm a beginner at this, meaning this is my first bike but, I have ridden a dirt bike a few times. My choices are the yz85, cr85, kx85, kx100, sx85, and the sx105 (Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, or Ktm).
      I am not interested in the rm because I just don't like it. It seems like a cheap crappy (sorry if I offended you) and it doesn't seem to have the speed and power that I want ( at least that's how people describe it to be). So please don't include it in.
      I am going to buy a used bike on Craigslist or somewhere because this is my first year and I'm not the richest of families (in case that helps.)
      Right now, I'm confused about which bike to get because they're all good brands. I want to be fast on the track (obviously) and I want to be aggressive. Which bike will fit that role? Can some also explain what top end and bottom end power is and what it helps with when you are listing a bike? Can you include the pro and con of it?
      I'm also not sure if an 85 is the right size for me, as I want to grow into a bike and have it last me. Maybe I should get a 125, if is so, which one (again, no Suzuki rm)? I'm going to a dealership to sit on some and try some (not too sure about trying some) Saturday but I just want thoughts about this.
      I don't know ANYONE with a dirt bike so the internet is my only friend here so I am really counting on you. My mom doesn't know anything about dirt bikes or the sport so I have to really look at this stuff myself. If you have any tips, please leave some as they will be helpful for me or any other onlookers in the same situation as I am in.

      My 2017 had ran perfectly until yesterday.  Last week at same track it was great, I changed the oil this week to synthetic with new filter.  This week, maybe 1/2 lap at speed once warmed up and it would start sputtering/bogging/cutting out momentarily.  Obviously not as it should be.  The air filter was not dirty and temperatures were the same both weekends.  I was guessing bad gas, which after I filled up realized it was 10% ethanol blend premium.  So today I drain the tank, get good premium (no ethanol) and hoped the bike would run right.  Nope.  Still sputtering upon full throttle as it revs out.   Runs fine at low RPM but that really does not matter.  Seems to have more popping on decal too.  Anybody got ideas?  I am cleaning the air filter now but I doubt that was a problem.

      I'm selling an FMF Gnarly pipe off a 2017 Beta X-Trainer. It came on the bike when I bought it. Only 24 hours on the bike so very low hours on the pipe. No dents, etc. See pictures.

      Fellow big bore brothers,
      I have uncorked my XR650L with Dave's Carb Mod, popped the top snorkel on my air box, Free Flow filter, and finally wore out my stock Bridgestone TW knobby trash tires and put on Mitas E07 front and rears.  I am now searching for an exhaust kit that compliments the bike aesthetically, gives it a good bark at idle and highway speeds, and still delivers good power. 
      I have been considering XR's Only header and slip-on but haven't heard to seen too many reviews for it... but like the price 
      I have also considered FMF since I was never disappointed on my 2 strokes or my previous CRF450X...
      My ears and mind are open to suggestions... what is everyone using? I am budget conscience but more so concerned of getting a kit that may need re-jetting due to the existing Dave's Mod.
      Thanks
      -Risty
