  1. half the hp of a 250 two stroke and the same weight. Wow, where do I buy one??!! lol.... what a dumb bike.
  2. Supercross

    I've always said watching Dungey is about as exciting as watching bread go stale, last night proved that. He doesn't look to comfy on orange...yet.
  3. Supercross

    Perhaps if he showed enough talent to place well then he could be treated like a factory rider. And yes I realize 6th is a good place, but after you get the lead, then get passed by 5 guys in about 7-8 laps then there's a problem.
  4. A real, competitive, off road race bike (like a KTM XC) would be great for at least one of the Japanese companies to manufacture. Look at how easily the YZ250 and RM250`s were to make off-road worthy. Then there is having a good dual sport. Take the Yamaha WR450 & 250 off road bikes. Those should be made into their dual sport line. I would buy a WR450 if it were an off the shelf DS bike, not as it is as a trail bike. Look at the XR650 and DR650`s. Those bikes are complete jokes. Its pretty sad when the DR-Z400 is the epitome of Japanese dual sport bikes.
  5. I might be picking up a DT 200 for cruising around town and hitting up mild trails where my YZ is not allowed to go. I have this urge to take out the stock engine and replace it with a YZ 250 engine, or whatever bigger 2 stroke engine that would fit. This is a shot in the dark, but has anyone ever heard of doing such a thing? Anyone have any experience with these little smokers? I just want a 2 stroke that's street legal.
  6. Yea if you're buying a hardtail and riding easy trails, or if you are freakishly tall, then a 29'er may be a wise option. But if 29'ers are that much better you would see every dh bike with 29" wheels.
  7. 29'ers are definitely not as fun. 26" wheels are kinda like riding a 125 - you have to work for it a little more but they are way more fun to ride in the end. A big problem with 29'ers is the geometry that bike builders have to make in order to make the bikes steer better. What you get is a twitchy bike most often. Not all of them are designed like that but most are. I like a slacker head angle and a bike that likes to be thrown around. 26 for life.
  8. Sorry I'm a little slow sometimes.
  9. Just go buy a cheaper hard tail from either Giant, Specialized, Trek, or Norco. Brand new if you can. A $500 used dual suspension bike will most likely be junk and need another couple hundred just to get to the point where its reliable. Save your money and spend a grand on a new bike.
  10. umm I think that's what I've been doing the past 16 years or so.
  11. I raced dh for about 8 years, trained on road and xc bikes for years, worked off and on in the cycling industry since '99ish. Designed the new Maxxis High Roller 2 dh tire, tester for X-Fusion suspension, yadda yadda yadda....... I'm in the process of building up a Marin Quake 7.2. Ugliest bike ever made but should be fun equipped with X Fusion suspension.

  13. I don't know, but I'm surprised as well.
  14. I was about to replace my piston when I found that my bike's cylinder is flaking off. My bike has 131hrs on it. First piston was replaced at 66, and I was going to replace the second one, both of which are actually still good enough to use. The rings are still good too, not sure why I was replacing them. From the time I bought this bike new, I used synthetic premix always and mixed it usually around 40:1. Air filter changed after every ride. Seems odd to me that after only 131hrs that my cylinder would need re-plating. Now I need to come up with $300 to get the work done! Yay!
  15. Is english your second language? If so you're doing an ok job.
