OEM RM250 After 1 National

Recommended Posts

just kidding,

It fell off the back of his truck on the freeway when his brand new hitch mounted bike carrier failed. His wife gave him the rack for fathers day...

EDIT: For the record: I dont know what specific Class three hitch mounted bike carrier. (It also wasnt my thrust with this whole post)

So I dont know what kind of rack this thing fell off of. Sorry if I wrinkle anyones sensibilities. It wasnt my intention. Now back to your viewing horror

It fell off the truck then got hit by two on coming cars. It first got nailed by a pickup, then a lexus hit it, the lexus went up on two wheels and then came back down on the bike raising the car off the ground allowing the cars to skid down the freeway for what he said was 250 yards.

It WAS an 05 he'd ridden 3 times. He's only had it 8 weeks.

I feel bad for the dude... :D

Or i should say, I felt bad for the dude...his wife has already given him the go ahead to sell anything and everything so he can get a new one :)

Note from TT Admin: After further investigation, the product that failed is NOT made by MotoJackRack, but that of a completely different manufacturer. Please be very careful when posting that you get your facts straight, as incorrect information can be damaging to a company's brand and negatively affect their livelihood.

At least ASV kept his levers from bending. . . :)

As luck would have it, the thing was in his truck when he was at the shop looking at new bikes. The ASV rep just happened to drive up at the same time...

Apparently the ASV rep is going to hook him up some how. You may see that bike in an ad! :)

Man, that bike is wrecked... I had my 2002 crf450 and trailer come disconnected in TX. I was lucky it rolled into the median and I only got a dented radiator with a small leak that I got fixed before the race.

Would the MFR of this product be liable for the bike due to MFR product failure?

We had a blow out once on our open trailer and my tie down came loose and my bike flipped over and was dragging the ground at 60+ mph!!! I could have almost dropped to the ground and cried!! Wasn't quite as bad as that one but the same 250F can be seen in my garage here on TT. Looks much better today. :)

If the sheered pin on the Ultimate MX Hauler was really the cause of the bike falling off, that's going to bad for business! A lot of people will see the post & pictures on Pro Ride and here.

If you have any stock in Ultimate MX, you better sell it! Divest! Divest! :)

That is truly a terrible story. Apparently, that was an a competitive product, NOT a Motojackrack.

Please pass along to your friend our offer of a free Motojackrack (he can give us a call at 714-637-9643 to discuss details).

Again, sorry to hear of your friend's troubles...

Word travels fast...LOL. Thanks for joining the forums MotoJackRack. Hopefully everyone reads far enough into this post to see your product is not responsible.

They should change the name of their product to "The Ultimate MX Mauler!" :)

I just went out to make sure my RM250 wasn't broken also....WOW

I was very fond of the UMXH design, not anymore....I don't care what type of disclaimer there was, if they didn't pay for the damage (new bike)...well i don't know what i would do. I know once something like this has been posted up on forums, it spreads quickly. First to other forums then to the tracks them to the dealerships....very bad for UMXhauler

Like one of you guys said....at least he still has his ASV levers....

This was made by a member on the motocross.com forums....

At least hes got the asv's!

wow, I feel so bad for the guy!

I just walked out to the garage to make sure my RM250 was ok.

I really liked the ultimate mx hauler...guess i don't like it as much now. I thought about getting one.

Motojackrack looks nice. Its neat that they offered him a free hauler. :)

If UMXH doesn't pay for the damage (new bike), I'm sure they will lose a lot of business :) . Once something is posted on a forum, it spreads to another forum, then onto the track, then into the dealership...all over. I have seen this on over 4-5 different forums all of them have very heavy traffic. They need to suck it up and pay if they haven't already. Or else its their reputation that will be trashed not only that guys sweet rm. I can see that the alternative trailer market is very competitive...many new brands out there.

One of the members on the motocross.com forums made this

At least he still has the ASV levers...

      I just bought a Magura hydraulic clutch for my 2014 CRF450R.  Bought it thinking install would be easy, and I'm not sure that's the case now that I have the product in my hands.  I have searched the forums, YouTube, etc for install help specifically for my model year (2013 and 2014 are same really), and haven't found anything specific for the 2013-2014 model install at all.  Instructions from Magura are TERRIBLE, and are not specific at all to the Honda - generic instructions - so I'm debating if I want to return the product, cuz I don't want trouble or a big install job.  Question: for the 2013-2014 CRF450R install ONLY of a Magura Hymec hydraulic clutch - other model years are different and thus it won't be helpful for other model years - do you have any tips or feedback?  My concerns are below...
      1.  The 2014 model has a sleeve behind the clutch actuation arm that the Magura clutch slave cylinder fits into.  Stock, the sleeve holds one end of the cable, with a nut on the other end to keep the cable end tight in the sleeve.  The Magura slave cylinder, however, slides into the mounting sleeve  - but does NOT have a nut: the tension from the clutch actuation arm pulling on the metal Magura slave cyl tip end is apparently supposed to keep the Magura slave cylinder tight in the mounting sleeve.  Q: Will the Magura slave fit in to the mounting sleeve easily, stay tight, and is there any adjustment needed in order to keep the 4-6mm of freeplay that Magura recommends?  How easy is it to get the Magura slave fitted into the sleeve and the metal tip in place?  Is there enough freeplay between slave and tip end to mount in actuating arm AND the holding sleeve, so that the holding sleeve doesn't need to be unbolted?  
      2. The stock clutch cable and OEM setup runs out of the mounting sleeve (see pics marked "metal starts", and then runs through a metal sleeve that routes the cable through the engine compartment - keeping the cable away from the hot parts of the engine case, so as not to melt the cable insulation (I believe).  That metal sleeve is about 6-8 inches in length.  The Magura clutch cable, on the other hand, exits the Magura slave cylinder at an angle - yet has no such metal routing.  I don't think the OEM metal routing sleeve will accept the Magura cable either, so a) the OEM metal routing sleeve would have to be removed first before installing the Magura - and then b) you have to hope that the Magura cable can be routed in such a way with zip ties holding the hydraulic line that line will not touch or be close to the hot metal engine casing as you route it through the engine.  Q: how easy was it to get the OEM clutch cable and metal routing sleeve out?  Easy as unscrewing the nut on the other end of the OEM cable, on the other side of the black rubber cable flange in my pics?   
      3.  My stock clutch pull isn't bad.  I just like the feel of a hydro clutch.  Any feedback on how much better feeling and easier pull will be with the Magura?  What's your feedback on the difference?  FYI, I'm leaving my clutch plates and springs stock.

      We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?

      Any advice on what should be replaced while I have the top end off for a valve replacement. Will do headgasket and springs of course, anything other parts you would recommend while I'm going at it?
       
      Thanks!

      The dirtbike is on it's forth year right now on the same motor job. I have to jump start it. Is it worth me trading for a 2009 650 brute force with7000 miles? Need some expert advice. Thanks

      Just wondering what you guys do to remove black marks on your seat. My 08 crf450r has the red/black seat, and after each ride there are some black marks on the red from my riding pants. Not scuff marks, more like patches of black residue from my pants rubbing on the seat. I’ve tried the magic eraser which seemed to do the trick, but lately they seem like they aren’t coming off. Also tried scrubbing bubbles with a brush and no luck. Not too worried cuz I have an spare OEM seat, but I’d like to keep this one nice. Any ideas? Maybe I shouldn’t wear black pants?
