    Namura Piston after 10 hours

    You mentioned 10 hrs ride time and a hare scramble. I'd say you have exceeded the service life of a single ring piston regardless of brand. I had an Eric Gorr 144 CR and he told me to re-ring after 5 hrs and replace after 15. Single ring pistons are high performance but short life. Mark

    Cr250 full woods bike opinions

    Sounds like you have a great start on your "woods" bike. Headlight is not necessary unless you plan on riding till dusk. If you have the resources, a 36mm carb will give more grunt but lose some on top. Mark

    Chain Slider

    I am fixing up a 1996 CR250R (to race). The original chain slider has worn through. This would be the plastic piece at the left front of the swingarm not to be confused with the chain guide. OEM is not available and have not had any luck in the aftermarket. Any help would be appreciated. Mark

    Michigan Harescramble 2019

    Valley Trail Riders in Bentley would be a good one. It is mostly single track trail. Camping is free. Mark

    2008 KLX 140L

    Check where the lever moves against the piston at the reservoir. There could be a misalignment from the impact.

    Helmet choice

    What is a good helmet for trials? If you have a favorite please include a source. Thank you.

    New to trials rider

    I'd say with your skill set you should be fine. My first trials bike was a 300. I used 2nd gear for everything. Once in a while 3rd. Ist was too "jumpy". You can get heavier flywheels to tame the responsiveness. Mark

    2017 TXT 300

    I have an opportunity to purchase this bike. Are there any pre-existing conditions I should know about? Quirks or oddities that owners have to deal with? I appreciate any feedback, good or bad. Mark

    Wrap around hang guards for KLX 140

    I installed Enduro Engineering handguards on my 140L. They are the wrap around style with the clamps.

    BBR Fork Springs and Rear Shock Spring

    I ordered the BBR spring kit (front and rear) off Amazon. I weigh 165 lbs. The bike is worlds better to ride now, safer as well. My next step will be a slightly heavier fork oil. It was worth it to me. Mark

    Vintage Bikes on MI trails

    Check out the Family Enduro Series in Michigan. They have added a vintage class. It looks like a great time to spend a day single tracking with other old hacks on old bikes. Mark
