POLL: TOP 5 03 SX RIDERS? In your opinion!

I did a quick search and with no results.

Heres my .02$.

1. Carmichael

2. Pastana

3. Vuillemin

4. Reed

5. LaRocco

1. Carmicheal

2. Stewert

3. Reed

4. Larocco

5. Lusk

Pastrana's done...at least until the x-games... :)

Bubba is the fastest, but in the end of the 250/450 class. Who will pervail?

I do like Pastrana!

Yogi is a prick! In my opinion. Sorry. There is just something about that guy that rubs me wrong. What bothers me even more, he's got the speed, and closer to my age.

Just my personal opinion. I think Mike Larrocco is one of the most consistent racers out there. For a man in his 30's and still at the pace of the younger guys, he just needs to get a start one of these days. For the past several years, he has been in the top 5, more than most of the others. Mike is my hero.

I like Mike.

I like Mike also....but as you get older you don't take the chances you would like when you were younger. I don't think he will take enough chances to win a championship, but he's still my favorite rider. I just wish he won more.

1.RC 2.Cobra 3.Ferry/Rock

I think Reed ranks up in the top 3 but it's his first year so we'll see what happens, he definetely looks fast. Gotta like the Rock for hangin in thier for all us middle age guys.

I want Larocco to win just because I root for the old guy. I got to meet Ezra at the Kawasaki convention here in San Antonio this summer. He was a real nice guy. He talked to us about a half an hour. Bubba was getting swamped by all the dealers, and seemed really overwhelmed.


RC, Stewart, Reed and Lusk in that order. And Lusk is a recent event. I would have said Viulleimen (spelling?) at the start of the season after the European rounds. But Lusk's recent races have shown he's back and ready.

reed on top, followed by carmichel, pastrona out for season, vullimen,lusk, and ferry


2)Rock, and...

3)Whoever else straps on the determination that particular night. Consistency is a true indicator of professionalism, and Proper Prior Preparation.

I could be wrong, but I'm not! :)

1. RC

2. Pastrana

3. Stewart

4. Reed

5. DV

1: RC

2: Reed/ Bubba- Close, real close

3: Travis, yeah, I believe he out for awhile

4: Preston (hey, he's up there :))

5: It a toss up from there....


1. RC

2. Lusk

3. Reed

4. Bubba

5. Rock

      I need recommendations on Honda dealers with good Mechanics in Western Washington. I am in Puyallup but will drive for peace of mind. I have never had a dealer do major work on any of my dirt bikes. But long story short I am on a 15 CRF450R and it needs the 5th gear recall done. Any and all info is much appreciated!

      I have a 2005 CRF450R with a Trail Tech fan kit installed. I need a little bit larger tank and would like to know if anyone has an aftermarket tank that fits with the fan kit.
      I dont need a monster 4 gallon, just maybe a 2.4 or 2.7 from IMS would do fine.  I talked with both the tank vendor and Trail Tech and neither could give me any answers.
      Thanks guys.

      So I emailed Factory Connection today to see what spring rate I need for the rear as I’m about 6’2” 220 lbs without gear. I also asked for a baseline front fork PSI to start at. This is what I received:
      The spring series we made for your bike is limited when it comes to larger/stiffer rates.  
      The spring rate you need is 5.9/6.0 range. We don’t sell that over the counter as it requires special installation process.  So we can’t sell the spring “over the counter”.  It would have to be installed at our shop.  
      Fork PSI I would recommend:
      Inner 160 psi
      Outer 11 psi
      Balance 160 psi
      Are they blowing smoke up my ass? What kind of ‘special installation’ could a spring take? I’ve changed and removed them before but not on a 16’ CRF before.
      Also, aren’t those psi settings for the Kawasaki KYB? I don’t think the psf2 have inner/outer/balance do they? Maybe he was having a bad day...or maybe I’m an idiot. FC’s website list there spring as ALS-0059. Can I not just order this spring and install it to set my sag correctly? Help?
