Datona SX on Speed

Right Now!!! MUDDDDDDDYYYYYY!!!!

wish i could watch but... dont have speed. and plus its only reed. ricky left and stewart is injured

DAMN, I am watching it right now and the track is SOOOOOOO bad. I love it!!

The worst conditions I've ever seen! Is this Trey Canard's first season? He's Woopin Villipotto's A**!

This is madness!

see reed`s bike stall 2 corners from the finish? kevin windam won

craziest finish ever, I feel so bad for Reed, but at the same time happy for Windam. Sucks for Yamaha, showing their bike can't even last the race while Honda takes the podium...

Too bad for Reed, he was kickin butt until it died. The guy doesn't have the best of luck does he.

honda 4 life.....

i do have to give the yamaha bike some credit though.....i think reed was on the gas way to hard, i mean, shit, he was rev limiting ever corner, which is not needed and does not help at all

Sucks for Yamaha, showing their bike can't even last the race while Honda takes the podium...

Mostly luck...any bike on that track was withing a single gulp of water away from utter failure. Actually, I thought it sucked for the rest of the guys, Reed was flat out kicking everyone's ass....made them look bad....

Well, since its already spoiled for others (I thought you were supposed to put "spoiler" in the title).

****SPOILER********

It kinda looked like Reed gave his mechanic the "bird" when he was stalled, and uselessly trying to kick over that trashed Yamaha. If that is what I actually saw, how childish! I mean, yeah he is fast, and rode a great race, and I do feel a bit sorry for his luck...but come on! Grow up, is your mechanic really to blame?! I actually liked Reed before this race. Oh well, he is still ten times faster than I'll ever be.

Not that I am brand loyal (maybe a little), but this race was funny, considering all the Yamaha guys that boast and gloat that their bikes are far more reliable than the Hondas. Didn't Honda sweep the podium for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd?! Not bad for an unreliable bike, on such a brutal track. Ha ha. Congrats #14!

Someone please tell me how Reed still got 15 points! On the AMA's own website on the lap chart he isn't even on there on the last lap although it says he finished 6th...on what bike? Either way he should have been disqualified for cutting the track multiple times and I'm not just talking of the time he got back on next to Windham. Here's to Windham getting his momentum going and winning this championship!!!!!

:eek: reed

:thumbsup: windham

See when the kawi was stuck right up in the air lol good race tho but muddy

Yeah, I noticed that too. Even before he took the shortcut back along Windham, on two of his corners, when he pushed to the outside, he simply went outside the course, onto the firmer ground to make up some before pulling back onto the track. I don't want to be the first to call #22 a less than honest rider, but man. Even the Reed fans had to see through that.

does any one elese think reed was to hard on his bike....he should know better. he had the damn thing on the pipe almost the whole race, i sounded like the bike never got under 11,000rpm's, its not like it takes that much to turn the wheele over in that slippery slop (espicially on a 450) he learned his lesson i guess

See when the kawi was stuck right up in the air lol good race tho but muddy

that was funney shit:applause:

Yeah! What he said!!

Go K Dub! :thumbsup:

Just another showing of how the AMA has no balls anymore to call anyone on anything and how they cater to the superstars of the sport. If Reed didn't push his bike over the finish line (pretty much impossible cause of the conditions) then how did he get 15 points, for signing up? Please!

Perhaps he finished enough laps to get sixth. He did cross the finish line, like 11 times, right?

I'm sure a lot of others made less laps than that...

      Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Star battles Through All-New Format Hell’s Gate to Finish Second
      February 11, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Graham Jarvis has earned a strong second place at the 2018 Hell’s Gate extreme enduro. With an all-new format for this year, concluding in a 20-minute sprint race, the event posed a fresh challenge for the five-time winner.
      For the first time ever, the event kicked off with a Prologue race on the Friday night. Designed to set the starting order for Saturday’s race, the Prologue was an endurocross style event held close to the hosting Il Ciocco Hotel. Although it provided a great spectacle for the fans, the race results were eventually scrapped due to issues with the course.
      Saturday’s heat race went well for Jarvis. An expert at managing his pace, the Brit did exactly what he had to do over the five-laps, finishing fourth aboard his Husqvarna FE 250 in the cold conditions of the Tuscan hills. The position gave him a good start for the night race, which saw riders set off at 3.30pm for a tough three-hour multi-lap event.
      At the conclusion of the night race, the top-10 riders were given a 15-minute break before contesting the new 20-minute endurocross in the arena area of the venue. In freezing conditions, the riders fought bar-to-bar in front of the record-crowd of spectators to decide the overall winner. With the final results calculated on the sum of the previous legs, Jarvis was announced as runner-up, just a few minutes behind eventual winner Mario Roman.
      Graham Jarvis: “I really enjoyed the racing today, I always do here at Hell’s Gate. It’s been a tough couple of days and I’m still getting used to riding the 4-stroke, but the bike has been absolutely faultless over the entire weekend. It has been pretty close between the top-four all day and it’s all come down to the final 20-minute race off. It would have been nice to take my sixth win at the event, but I’m happy with second.”

      My top end went on m 98 cr 125, the needle bearing clip came out and broke apart and shrapnel got everywhere and blew it up. I cleaned out the top end and washed out the crank with the bike upside down. the bike starts up great and seems to run fine but im getting a weird di-di-di-di-di-di-di noise coming from the motor. i tried adjust the power valve and tightening everything but the noise is still there. Here is a link to a video where you can hear the sound. It gets louder as rpm's get higher and at really low rpm barely idling it goes away. I am pretty new to bikes and 2 strokes so any help would be appreciated.
