  1. I wear mine with an EVS F2 chest protector and they fit well and work as expected.
  2. The Geico graphics with the black seat cover is pure sexy.
  3. You might be better off in the long run to find a 105 cylinder and piston on ebay or craigslist, then sell your 85 parts.
  4. Evmo's advice is sound. The Honda XR200 and it's descendant, the CRF230F, are ridiculously durable and easy to ride. If you're new to using a clutch, they can be very forgiving as well. The downside is that they're really heavy. If you have experience using a clutch I'd suggest looking for a 200 2-stroke. If your budget is tight, look at the old Kawasaki KDX200 or KDX220. If you can spend a little more for a bike that has better parts availability, look hard at the KTM 200 models. These bikes were built for trail riding and racing. Despite being 2-strokes, they're geared and jetted for lugging around in the woods rather than screaming around a motocross track. They're also popular as enduro bikes so there will be parts available to make them street legal.
  5. Something to consider is that the 150 and 200 share many features, including a bottom end, which is to say your 150 that you love could be turned into a 200 for around $1000-1200. It's also my understanding that the differences between the XC-W transmission and that of the XC are minor; a lower first gear and higher 5th and 6th. The middle gears, where you'd spend most of your time while racing, are the same in both gearboxes. Search the 2-stroke forum over at KTMTalk. Andrew Cooksey (AndrewGC) just did this conversion on a 150XC and details what was involved.
  6. I'm a member at a local track in central PA. On race day, we turn on the sprinklers and turn loose the water truck about a half hour before practice. We then go around the track with tractor-drawn tillers which eliminate most of the areas with standing water. Practice is 4 laps for in the order A, B, C, 80, 60, 50. We run the first moto of each race (19 yesterday) before lunch. Over the lunch break the track is watered and tilled again. The first group to race after lunch is given a sight lap.

  8. Might be slight overkill for what you're looking for, but you could try to find a Park Tools BW-1.
  9. Ryan was awesome when my kids and I met him back in his Suzuki 250 days. He talked to my son, who was 5 at the time, about his experience starting out on a PW50. I'll be a fan for life.
  10. Maxima MTL-XL 75w is equivalent viscosity. Retail is $9.50/liter, but you may be able to find it cheaper.
  11. My club has a $75 annual fee plus a requirement for 100 hours of service each year (maintenance, flagging, etc). In exchange, we can ride anytime on a pretty awesome track.
  12. Those are their One ID graphics available to sponsored riders.
  13. Enduro Engineering also makes a spark arrestor end cap that fits your stock silencer. https://shop.enduroeng.com/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?preadd=action&key=40-212
  14. Twitter was saying Hansen cut the track and got black-flagged.
