  1. If you want a 2-stroke, keep the 300 and use this to learn to ride: https://elmira.craigslist.org/mcy/d/2003-suzuki-rm-125/6553105331.html or sell the 300 and use this to learn to ride: https://hartford.craigslist.org/mcy/d/honda-crf250x/6558846400.html You've got a taste for a real dirtbike. Anything less would be very disappointing imo. That 250X is essentially an XR with good suspension. Step up in size when you've gotten everything you can out of the 250x, but it will last you a looooooooooooong time.
  2. LOL. "but that would be a nice down payment on this 2018 Husqvarna..."
  3. You could take the motor to Dan @ Motoxotica. I think he shops that work out but he is super knowledgeable about those motors and I'm sure whoever he sends them to does more of that motor than anyone else locally. When done correctly, you will never have an issue with that motor again. If he is going to have his mechanic do it in house, go else where.
  4. Thats like the DOJ saying they are going to eliminate the hand gun roster whooo whooo! Now handguns sold in CA must have a 16" barrel and be 30" overall length.
  5. husaberg.org Pull the motor and send it to a pro. Those bikes are too much fun to go back to anythign else.
  6. Sounds like you're being sarcastic about the gear, but if you're going to put him on a bike in those polyester gym pants and tennis shoes stay very close. They are often too small to kick the bike off in a tip-over and a header or pipe will burn the shit out of them very quickly. Riding pants often aren't a whole lot better so sometimes thick jeans and riding boots are the best option until you know they can free themselves from the bike.
  7. Unless you're dual sporting I don't see why people don't like mixing. Now JETTING - that's a whole nother story.
  8. So posting here like you did is like going to the doctor just to bitch about being fat, then getting butt hurt that he told you to stop eating so much and exercise more.
  9. Why are they selling for that much? Cause people buy them for that price. Blame the buyers, not the sellers.
  10. I think its just a weird displacement. Real technical riders want less. Off-road racers want more like a 450 (even though it may be completely un-necessary) and anyone in the dual sport/big bore category generally wants the 500. If they changed nothing but called it a 450 it would probably sell more.
  11. Instead you should buy my CRF110 with 12 hours on it for $1700. That way you get a few more years out of it.
  12. I hate every on road mile on my RS with a passion. I'm sure I would on a husky or KTM as well. But glad I have the option and its wonderful off-road.
  13. Does your wheel sensor still work?
  14. Street Bike webinar going on now as well. On-Road Presentation: https://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/motcycle/a.pdf
  15. I know most hate the CA Division of OHMVR here, but if anyone is listening, that is an OHMVR Commissioner grilling CARB to get their facts straight (their assumptions are wrong) and make it easier for Manufacturers to meet emissions standards. CARB is also trying to show that 69% of emissions will be Red sticker vehicles by 2040 so they [CARB] really needs to "focus" on red sticker bikes.
