OT - Aneheim results - KW?

Recommended Posts

I watched the Aneheim sx on tv. KW won his qualifier, but they never showed him or talked about him in the main. Anyone know what happened to him?

Boy, I hope someone discovers speed besides Chad or it is going to be a boring season for the top spot. Chad went through the whoops twice as fast as anyone else! It was astounding!

For 125 coverage, tune in to ESPN2 later in the week. They don't show much on the Sunday show.

Kevin got a decent mid pack start and was coming up through the pack. He got behind Evans and was stuck there for a bit. He took the inside before the tripples while Evans took the out side and Evans cut underneath him. They both doubled/singled the tripples. On the same straight there was a rythem/whoops section and Evans trippled where Kevin only doubled and Evans had the inside on the next turn and passed him back. From that point, Kevin pretty much gave up. Evans wanted it more then KDub did. Prior to that point, Kevin was catching Evans and pulling Huffman clearly. He was pretty unhappy with his setup in the whoops. On Monday either Marc Peters or Dirt Werx were at the honda test track building MONSTER whoops so kevin could ride back and forth. I too, hope he gets things going.

Read an interview where KW said he couldn't get his suspension dialed the way he wanted and decided not to take chances. Considering it was breaking his femur at an SX that ended his riding for a year and a half - I think it was a smart move on his part.

Hmmm . . . he looked pretty good when he won his qualifier. Perhaps they twiddled with his suspension and made it worse instead of better.

I watched it again tonight and noticed that he was somewhere around 12th the first couple laps and then 20th around lap 4. Perhaps he went down? Or stalled? He then climbed back up to 9th at the end. I hope he gets it sorted out and we have some real racing to watch in the coming weeks! I'd sure like it if they showed LaRocco more as well - mid-pack start all the way to 4th and they showed very little of him.

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**

      Hi I’m new on the forum and I was wondering if a 2001 Yamaha YZ426f clutch is interchangeable with a 2002 Yamaha YZ426f clutch thanks , Coleman
