    C'mon Dad!

    By scottiedawg

    Over the course of my time operating MotoMission Peru, I have had various opportunities to host/guide dirt bike adventures with other riders. I have a special place in my heart for father/son adventures. I guess it must have something to do with the sentiment I have with my dad.   Official MotoMission Tour Video...Check the others on our Youtube Channel   Dirtbikes and Dads go together When Tony and Joran contacted me about doing a tour, my excitement level

    What Spare Parts Do You Bring To The Track or Trail?

    By Paul Olesen

    With warmer weather and the riding season around the corner for many of us, I wanted to cover a topic that can either make or break an event. Whether you’re competing in a racing series or traveling to the track or trail, let's talk about event preparedness. More specifically, what spare parts should you keep on hand? Plus, what methods do you use to keep your spares organized? Honestly, I struggled with organization until I started working on this post. I had no method to my madness. Every t

    Three Easy Ways to Improve Engine Cooling

    By Paul Olesen

    This month I want to discuss three easy ways to improve engine cooling for your dirt bike or ATV and explain why they are effective. As improvements are made to an engine that increase its power, the amount of heat the engine will create will also increase. Effectively removing heat from the engine and cooling it is very important as the power output of the engine goes up. The cooler an engine runs, the more power it can produce. There are three ways that the aftermarket attempts to improv

    Natural Alternatives to Performance Enhancing Drugs

    By Coach Robb

    It has been a few years now since Lance Armstrong appeared on TV and admitted to his, and his teams, use of performance enhancing drugs (PEDS).  To say that there was an awareness of PEDS influencing the race results of the Tour de France is an understatement; however, to the extent that past racers and champions have admitted to using PEDS (both regarding the type and amounts) is frightening.  In this article, I thought I would provide a recap of the most popular PEDS and how you can get the sa

Help - My Four-Stroke Engine is Burning Oil!

There’s nothing more alarming than realizing your four-stroke powered pride and joy is burning and consuming abnormal amounts of oil. Whether it’s a first-hand account or lending a sympathetic ear to a buddy dealing with the problem, we’ve all been there to some degree. I recently had a customer detail his machine’s oil consumption problems and logically explained away all the possible reasons why the engine could be burning oil. He had always changed his filter routinely and oiled it properly,

Podcast #42 – 20 Steps to Eliminate Weaknesses

Was Psychologist Abraham Maslow wrong when he created his Hierarchy of Needs?  When you look at the human race and our desire to reach our fullest potential (financially, professionally, personally and athletically) we have the flow pattern completely upside down – Maslow was correct! When working with individuals around the world, there is one constant word that comes up when desirable goals don’t become a reality – weak.  Comments like I wasn’t “tough” enough and I “quit” – most interpre

King Moon Racer 02: Chapter 4 - Back from a Long Summer

Greetings, followers and fans of those loving “orphan toys.”  My apologies for the extended gap between blog posts.  More important things in life got in the way over the summer (passing of a relative, relocation of another, and other such worthwhile uses of focus).  Thank you for coming back to check the latest. KMR02 and I have been getting along quite well with the little time we’ve had together.  A very active thread on this bike has spawned itself in the “Chinese bikes” section of TT

07 CRF 450R bog at times / needs throttle to start

So my 07 CRF 450R recently decided it would bog a bit soon as I would come up to a jump.

I had the valves readjusted by the nearest Honda dealer for $600 three years ago and really only about 80 hours on vavle adjustment and I'm know perfestional rider but I'm decent. Now to get it to start I need to give it a bit of throttle. Typically I jus

The Dirty Little Secret Behind Mental Fatigue

The Dirty Little Secret Behind Mental Fatigue

When it comes to getting through a week, nothing is more exhausting than being mentally spent. There are numerous articles and videos out there addressing how to offset muscular fatigue, but during this podcast, I take a look at the big 10-pound muscle on top of your shoulders – your brain – and help you get a clear understanding why mental fatigue sneaks up on you when you least expect it! When it comes to the physical signs of fatigue such as tired muscles, cramping, slower speeds, less

Project Bike Update: Crankcase Repair Tips

If you’ve ever experienced a ride or race where your crankcases got damaged in some way, whether from a rock or engine failure you know just how painful dealing with the aftermath of damaged crankcases can be. For those of you who haven’t had to deal with crankcase issues, consider yourselves lucky and know that if you stay in motorsports long enough, your time will come. Late last year I picked up a 2005 Honda CRF250 project bike (click here to read about it) which came with crankcase damage. T

Hello, and greetings from King Moon Racer (also known as DingerJunkie).  It has been far too long since my last update on the second official KMR Blog Project.  Unfortunately, life has a habit of getting in the way.  I hope the info makes up for the delay…my apologies.

The Fundamentals of Dirt Bike Handling

The Fundamentals of Dirt Bike Handling

Have you ever ridden a buddy’s bike and walked away wishing that you didn’t have to get off because everything just clicked as you were riding it? On their bike, you could rail every corner, absorb every bump effortlessly, and feel completely stable at high speeds. Once you got back on your bike it feels slow, riding over rough terrain wears you out, and taking corners is best described as unpredictable. To make matters worse, you and your buddy could have the exact same bike! What could possibl

China-Bike Hassle or View to the Future: The Direct-Purchase Dirt bike Model

My recent purchase of King Moon Racer 02, an Orion Powersports RXB-39, has given me an opportunity to expose other riders to information they may not have been able to find clearly stated in other avenues.  Because this is ThumperTalk, most of that desired information is about the bikes, and I’m looking forward to providing more there.  However, day-job duties have me travelling this week, so trail data will have to wait a bit.  Meanwhile, there is something possibly more important to cove
