  1. I had my CR125 up for sale, but the lack of interest has made me decide to keep it. I'm going to try the 167 kit from UpTite and put the 06 WR/CR 125 off until the end of 06. Has anyone had George's 167cc kit. If so what do you think? Thanks, brown

    PC or FMF pipes on the CR125?

    The stinger section of the exhaust pipe (where the sil. connects). It seem as if the stinger section was from some other model. Think of it this way, when the pipe was on the bike, the end of the pipe went all the way up to the sil. body. I ended up cuting about 7-8" off of it and rewelding it up and it fit just fine.

    Don't forget about DynoPort. Give them a call and tell them what your looking for. On my 04, the stinger section of the pipe was long. I had to cut and reweld it. As for the DP pipe... it was the best of all I tried. Regards, brown

    How much is an acre where u live?

    Every place is differenct but 'for the most part' land prices change depending on size and location. Small tracts (1 ac. & below ) are going to be the highest per acre. The larger the tract the more the price with drop per acre. Also most of the time the more rural the area the cheaper the price is per acre. Research the tracts that have sold in the area you are looking at buying. Find tracts of roughly the same size and see what they have sold for in the last 6 months. Also make sure to reasearch the same type of property (e.i. - roughly the same road frontage, water/power avail., ect..). Most of this reasearch can be done at the court house or property assessor. Good luck.

    04 CR144 ride report

    Just thought I would give you 125 riders a little info on the 144cc kit. I had thought about the 167cc kit but chickened out. I ended up getting Eric Gorr to punch the 125 out to 144. I finally got a chance to get out and put some miles on it. I went out today and put about 30 miles on it in some tight muddy rutted up trail. All in all, I'm very pleased with the engine work. I does have more grunt and pulls 2nd and 3rd gear very well without as much clutch work, running 13-50 gearing. I still plan on playing with the gearing to see what is best. The extra grunt give you a little more "room for error" on those blind up hill. I'm running it with a DynoPort low-end pipe and I think it may be a little much. I plan on swapping back to the stock pipe to see how it works. With the DP pipe it has a pretty good little hit down low and on the muddy roots it's a little much. The stock pipe should smooth it out a little more off the bottom. If you ran the 144 with the WR ign/flywheel I think that would be a very nice set-up. All this being said, you have to remember it's on a 20cc jump. It's not going to give it the low end of a 200 or 250. As long as you go in thinking that, I think anyone would be very pleased with the difference. If any problem comes up I will let you know. brown

    '06 body work on '04 2T?

    The tank is the only problem on the 04 to 06 switch. It can work with relocating the bottom tank mount and you have to weld a new mount to the top of the frame. But even when that is done the backbone of the frame doesn't mount-up to the tank very well down by the air box. Once the tank is in place everything else fits just fine. CR/WR 167 I was planning on going 167, but chickened out. I just could get past the idea of overheating down here in the south. It may have worked great and never overheated but I just couldn't pull the trigger. I did end up going with a 144cc kit from Eric Gorr. I've had it for about 3-4 weeks or so. The first test ride was last weekend and the test didn't last long. The jetting was lean and the gearing was to low and I didn't want to kill the engine on the first ride. I have yet to put a good ride on it since I rejetted and made the gearing change. What I can tell you, from riding around the house, the lowend is great and still pulls well up top. It should make a great tight woods bike and I shouldn't have to clutch nearly as much. The bike will easily pull 2 & 3 (geared 13-49/50) without the extra clutch work. Once I get out and put a good test on it (30-40 miles) I will post my ride report.

    2006 CR 125 Spark Arrester

    I also run the PC S/A on my 04 125. It fit without much of a problem. It fit with my stock, PC and DynPort pipe.

    2006 Cr 125 Bigger Tank

    I wouldn't think there would a bigger tank for the 2-stokes for a while (6-8 months) Try to run it first to see how many miles you can get. I run the IMS (3-3.2 gallon) tank on my 04 125 and I can run a 2-2 1/2 hr H/S and have a good amount left. So you may be able to push 40 mile. The only other thing is to get a 05-06 4-stroke IMS tank and make it work. The backbone of the frames are close and you should be able to just relocate the mounting tabs to make it work.

    I saw the pic the other day. With the angle of the pic you can't really tell how wide it is.

    Before i buy tc 250

    My $0.02.... go test one yourself and make you own decision. That what I would tell anyone thats looking at any bike. That being said back when I had 04 TE250 I raced it against all the other 250F in H/S races and I never felt like I was giving up any power to them. I wouldn't think there would be much difference now either. Mostly it depends on what type of power delivery you like. Each bike has their own way of putting power to the ground. Ride one you may like it, you might not. brown

    A Shout Out to All Middle TN Riders

    Westpoint is a riding area in Westpoint, TN. The land is leased by NATRA (North Alabama Trail Rides Assoc.). There is about 4000 acres and they have about a 35-40 miles loop of mostly single track. You can get the NATRA info here http://natra.dirtrider.net/ for $40 a year you can ride year-around. NATRA also puts on a Harescramble (for SERA) on the property. This year they will also be putting on a ISDE Qualifier at the property on June 17 & 18th. brown

    A Shout Out to All Middle TN Riders

    Last time I was there, before surgery, I ripped off the S/A. Had to ride back with it in my hand. Boy... that little bike is loud without the S/A. Hope to ride with you soon... Are you and your group going to the WUDI ride?

    A Shout Out to All Middle TN Riders

    Injured my big toe years ago, back in my sports days... It just got to the point I had to do something now or end up having it fused in a couple of years. They cut the bone below my big toe, reshaped it and then used a couple of screw to put it back in place. Then reattached the muscle and tendons that holds the toe in place ( had been torn from the old injury). Everything has went pretty well. Count down until riding... 2 weeks & 2 days. I'm sure, first ride back I'll hit every tree at WP..... should be fun. brown

    Front Wheel Bearing

    cowboy, The numbers are right and you can get it from most bearing houses, just give them the #6905. I know it doesn't help know (with the hub) Not sure what the 6"1"9.. 1 is for but the #6905 is the bearing (2RS stand for 2 rubber seals)

    Watts to Husky?

    In my H/S series Husky gives HuskyBuck. They had $101,000 in HuskyBuck to give to my series. Up until this year they gave more then other bike. Do you know how many Huskys race my series? Maybe 4 on the best day (thats out of an average of 375 bikes per race). I think a "creative privateer amatuer support program" would be good but the fact is KTM made it's big run with not much of anything other then winning on Sunday.

    Watts to Husky?

    tm enduro, My thought, is if you sponser a good GNCC racer it can only help to sale the bikes, simple as that. What wins on Sunday sells on Monday. I know it's a MX saying, but there is a hint of true to it. In my area (southeast) there are more then a few GNCC races within a few hours drive. Back when KTM started to make its drive to the top, I remember a few local H/S racers had them, but most still rode the big 4. After KTM started putting wins up in the GNCC the tide started to turn and in a 2 year swing you could not ride the trails without seeing one. Now, I would bet that KTM has the largest number of bike at 90% of the H/S or Enduros in the southeast (% wise). Not to say anything bad about MX or desert but I believe more people indentify with woods riding. Not everyone is near a desert and not everyone has a MX track close but most have some sort of woods trail they can ride (even thought it getting harder) Don't get me wrong I wish Husky could sponser a top rider for every type of event. But thats not going to happen. I think their best bet to get a piece of the market is to go after the H/S/-Enduro-GNCC riders. You may not get the guy watching the Supercross on TV, but you may be able to get the guy out every weekend riding/racing in the woods. I'm sure it's not the same in defferent part of the US but thats my thought from the southeast.

    Tennessee vacation rides?

    22HiStandard, 143 is mostly 4-wheeler wide trails, just like you rode. I would recommed you join NATRA and take a ride over to Westpoint, they have the type trails you are talking about.

    I watched it. It was very interesting to watch but to be honest I'm spoiled by the ISDE dvd's. An hour was good but 5-6 hrs would have been better.
