    Looking for a street/dirt machine

    Do you guys think that the small oil leak behind the sprocket is a reason for me to stray away from the bike and wait for the right one?

    Okay, I will definately take my mind off the wr400 with supermoto already. The other bike youre talking about with the 40t rear sprocket was what he was going to convert to a supermoto. I may take a look at that. His other one is not for sale. How well would these bikes run on the street with enduro tires? A supermoto conversion seems quite pricey and I may have to buy enduro tires for now.

    Looking for a street/dirt machine

    What exactly do you mean high strung? I actually do not think I will be riding to school but more of doing the back roads and twisties with my buddies. And I text him and asked him. He said that it taps at idle but once you start moving it goes away.
  5. Hello so at the moment I have a 2001 rm125. I am 16. 6'2" and little over 210 lbs. I am looking for a bike that I can ride onroad to school and back, and on day ride with my friends up in the hills. I want a bike that is reliable and will not break down on me when I am out on the road or dirt. The only bike really in my price range is the yz400/426 or wr. I have found a couple for sale locally and want your opinion on them. http://modesto.craigslist.org/mcy/2577631875.html http://sacramento.craigslist.org/mcy/2576096430.html The first says it has a tapping. Can this really be fixed by a valve adjustment? Also what are your guy's opinion on how good it will be for street riding? I posted this in the yz400/26/50 section also, but it sort of pertains to bolth sections.

    Looking for a street/dirt machine

    I know But I can not afford to ride/maintain two bike. I will be using the bike as weekend road/dirt rides. I probabaly will not ride it to school. Im not looking for anyhting to compete with a street bike ebcause all my friends have enduro's or supermotos. I need something that will be sufficient to ride. I really like the look of the first one. Is the tapping really a big issues and can a simple valve adjustment fix it?

    What do you think of this helmet?

    I didnt read that article but i do remember reaidng an article somewhere else that the more exspensive helmets are more prone to concussion but if you were wearing a cheaper helmet that it would be even worse then a concussion. Concussion is better then some other worse possibilities I bthink

    What do you think of this helmet?

    I was also very tempted! they used to have way more colors but over the past couple months they have all been bought i guess. Bell Moto 8 has insane nice ventilation is what I heard. For those that ride in hot weather, this is a GOOD cheaper helmet. If you look it up when they first came out tey were in the $450 dollar range. Just like the moto 9 is right now. And to tell the truth, I didnt read that article but when it comes to helmets you not only want a helmet that protects well but you want, comfort, lightness, aerodynamic, and yes looks do matter to me. I would not spend $60 on a helmet because it is my head and I want it to be protected to the fullest. if a $500 helmet fits me better then any size $60 helmet then that $500 helmet is giving me better protection already.

    Budds Creek 2011 Crash

    The initial whip was so crazy. One hell of a camper to get up from that. I know its racing but I still cannot believe people can just fly by this without even looking to see if he is okay. haha
  11. I wanna see some pics of the crf

    This helmet. http://www.motorcyclecloseouts.com/search/bell_moto_8 EDIT guy above me beat me to it. The Bell Moto 8 is a great helmet, better than any helmet that has been posted so far IMO. Read the reviews.

    $260 Craigslist Spray-Bomb Special

    I have a front and rear rim for late 90 rm125's I bought them because the seller said they came off his 2002 but the axel on my bike is too large for the rear so i did some research and sure enough they are form a pre-2k bike. Shoot me a pm if you are interested.
  14. I have never seen a broken crf x/r for $500 please lmk if/when you do because id jump on that. But like this guy said i think buying a "project" bike will be the best way to go because in the process of rebuilding you can go through the whole engine etc and get to know the ins/outs of engines

    250f how heavy is to heavy

    shit I weigh 230 with gear and ride a 125 2 stroke. Yea I may have to do top ends a little morr frequently but it has plenty of power to go fast just gotta ring it. I think the 250f will be plenty for you, I have friends around 200 that ride them.
