  1. They can bite back pretty quick! Here's the video of me going over
  2. FancherMX have you heard back? Im in for a new rack as well if they are available, PM sent
  3. Screenshot from my gopro, rider down on the rock downhill section hard. He wasn't the only one, second pic is me when I caught the front wheel at the top and went over the bars!
  4. Thanks for the replies. The cylinder and piston look untouched and in great shape. I'm going to pick up a complete head from ebay and get a MCCT and new cam chain from the TT store.
  5. With the combo of the 13oz FWW and the Gnarly it made it much better ya, with just the 13oz it wasn't enough, the gnarly actually made a noticeable difference. I can chug it pretty slow and low in first and second. But there is still a lot of throttle control needed for the real gnarly stuff, but that's true for any bike in that terrain, just more so on the KX then say a 300xcw. Most people that ride my bike off of a more woods oriented bike are surprised at the delivery. I've had a couple 300's in recent enough years as well. I did not like the KX in stock form. Was really aggressive for the tight, gnarly riding I like to take it in. I could race an extreme enduro on my KX with the current set up. The G2 maybe would be even better.
  6. I have an 07 kx250, 13oz fww, gnarly and 13\52. Also has new v-force, fresh bottom and top end 2 weeks ago ect. Very luggable with these few mods. I've had two ktm 300's in years past and the kx is not that good, but still quite impressive. Maybe look into the G2 throttle tamer as well. I've been wanting to try one but having trouble getting one in Canada.
  7. Just to clarify those last few pictures (of the parts on the wooden bench) are from my roached parts motor. I have yet to pull my head off, hoping to have the time one night next week. I was low on oil, but not empty by any means. I had full intentions to change the oil and filter after this first 15 minute ride of the year, just didn't work out as planned! Once I pull the head I suppose I'll know all of what is needed for parts. But if anyone has a full head for sale let me know!
  8. Keeping my bike info on the same thread here, had some bad luck the other day on my first road ride of the year. Exhaust cam journal/holder broke and caused some damage. So far I've only pulled the cover so I'm not sure what I'm into yet, but just hoping for no bent rod or bottom end damage if the piston hit a valve or something like that. If it's just a new head ect I'm interested in picking up one of the completes from ebay, there's a few listed. I also have a parts motor that has intact holders but in rough shape, but the cylinder is in decent shape. Very busy time of year for me so it will be neglected for a couple weeks and I'll be riding my 450. I drained the oil and there was no signs of metal and the magnetic drain plug was clean. Pics of current motor and parts motor. The pics taken on the wood bench are the parts motor pieces.
  9. Looks great! How are those frame guards? I was thinking about ordering a set. Other bikes I've had haven't felt as skinny as the RMZ and it leaves me struggling to grip with my knees and legs.
  10. I bought my first RMZ450 last fall and got a couple rides on it before the snow came. Just did my first race on it on Sunday, also my first ride on it this year. Here's a couple minutes of that race: It was a 6 lap, 60 mile race, but the course ended up being a bit over 10 miles a lap. That with the sand and I went through a lot of fuel and ran out on lap three, the lap I was planning to pit on. An IMS tank is in my future. I also bolted on a Scotts damper before the race, but the bolt on tower mount is not very confidence inspiring, so I ran without the damper. I may buy a GPR tower and try to use it with the rest of my Scotts set up.
  11. I've had a couple knee injuries, ligaments torn and repaired ect, and a shattered knee cap. I have had a couple set of EVS web knee braces. I like the fit and feel, but never did like the patella protection at all. I even wore a thin volleyball kneepad underneath them for a couple years. I bought Mobius last fall. Good so far, I like the impact protection better. But I prefer the feel of the EVS against the bike. The Mobius are more noticeable when gripping hard with my legs. When I replaced I wanted the Ultra cell, but couldn't get my hands on any. Worn with both SG12 and Crossfire 2 with no issues with boot interference. Velcro straps on both tend to get caught when getting riding pants on, just takes a little more care while dressing.
  12. Emperor Racing makes really nice handguards, and other products as well. Worth a look, and their based in Canada so you could take advantage of the weak dollar here and save some money too! I've been very happy with their products over the years, mostly using the skidplates. I'm going to get a yellow set of handguards for myself soon. https://www.emperorracing.com/
  13. Yesterday's ride, put the studs on in the morning, winter is here
  14. You can see how much the guard covers here and the I have skateboard grip tape on the rest.
