What's your Top Off-road mods?

Recommended Posts

For me I'd say:

1. Suspension re-spring/re-vavle

2. Big clear tank (Avoid pits, see gas level)

3. Rubber mounted triple clamps with al. bar (reduce vibration and hand fatique/arm pump)

4. Fly Wheel Weight (Smooths power, better traction, easier starting)

5. FMF Q (Need to be 96db and still have power, also need a spark arrestor)

Suspension is by far the most important one for me.

Cheers,

For me:

Hand guards

Radiator guards

Case guards

Skidplate

Propper jetting

The best setup suspension in the world is worthless if you have to push the bike out.

I try to make the bike as crash proof as possible first, then it's on to making it ride better. 😢

A brake snake is a cable that goes from the rear brake lever to the frame and you put a piece of clear plastic tube over it (comes in package). It prevents Trees and bushes from getting in there and sending you over the bars. I actually got a Manzita stuck in my old Husky 610, stopped me quick in my tracks and took 30 minutes to get it out. 😢

The FWW is extra weight added to the Fly Wheel. The extra mass is harder to get moving at first (smooths the off idle hit on a 2-stroke) but is much hard to stop spinning once its moving up to speed (higher top speeds, harder to stall, more gyroscope effect gives better traction as does the smoother power delivery.)

Each bike there is a optimal amount of FWW for each application. For MX bikes you'll see the manuafacters play with this alot. For 05 the RM250 has more FWW, that's why now the 05 RM has top end over the 04.

For off-road you want more than MX, for enduros you probably want more still, and for Trials the bikes already come with MASSIVE FWW's.

I put a 12oz FWW on my girlfriends KX100, I think its too, big, and the 8oz we tried seemed too small. I'd try a 10oz for the KX100. The one we put on the KX was a Steahly.

Here is what i do first!

1. hand guards

2. radiator guards

3. skid plate

4. front & rear disk guards

those are the basics but i feel the mods that make the biggest impact are:

1. suspension revalve/spring

2. auto-clutch

3. steering dampner

😢

It's a weight on the flywheel to ease the hit of the engine. Basically, it makes it so the engine can't accelerate as fast. A flywheel weight can also help the bike run better in the lower RPM ranges because of the increased momentum the flywheel has.
