OT - Aneheim results - KW?

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.

I asked the same question myself after seeing the race. He finished back in the pack, 9th maybe?

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.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I could use some feedback, My son is getting into off road riding so I have starting getting back into it as well.  We mostly do trail riding but did some MX track riding last year and he loved it andso did I.  I have a 2003 TTR 225, it's nice that it has an electric start but the suspension is too soft and it doesn't have enough power for my liking.  When I was riding the MX track I was having issues bottoming out on the larger jumps.  I want to change to a more off-road capable bike.   I won't ride it much and don't want to spend a lot of money, I think I prefer a 2 stroke, when I was younger, in 1990, I raced an 89 RM250 and loved it.  I am looking at a 96 RMX 250  and a 98 YZ400F, both bikes look to be in good condition and around a thousand dollars.  I like the RMX because I think kicking a 2 stroke 250 should be easier than a 4 stroke 400 and the simplicity of the 2 stroke engine.  The 400 sounds good because of the low end torque I assume it has but the cost of rebuilding the 4 stroke if needed worries me and I have heard they are hard to start. Should the RMX be decent for an occasional trip to an MX park?  Any thoughts on these two bikes?

Don't spend hundreds of dollars on a slip on, this tip can be quiet and forest legal or loud and make power!

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator http://www.rickystator.com/product/stators/yamaha/yamaha-yz450f-35-watt-lighting-stator-assembly-06-09 work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
