  1. I separated my shoulder riding and when I get back to it I need to protect this shoulder. What do you recommend? I feel like elbow pads are a good idea too. Do neck supports and chest protectors go well together or do they restrict movement?
  2. I am beginning to see these very small specs of rust all over parts of my bike, mainly on the engine and pipe. it actually seems to have been very recent, like since the last time i rode and didnt wash all the mud off my bike. is washing after each ride that important? is there any way to get rid of these rust specs? thanks
  3. I need to get new bars for my 2005 YZ125 because they bent. What is the advantage getting the oversized bars? What bend should I get? I will probably go with renthal, and probably the stock 7/8 inch size

    Bad bearings in steering column

    Bad bearings in steering column

    The steering on my 05 yz125 is feeling weird right now. First of all, there is basically a "free play" in my steering in that when I first start turning the wheel it is easy to turn for ~20 degrees each way and then it gets real stiff. It basically feels like the bearings are gone bad. Is this any easy fix? what kind of money will it cost? also, when i am turning the wheel in this free play area, the rubber piece moves with the column and then it stops when it gets stiff

    Handlebars Hard to Turn

    Is it a big job to get these bearings out? do I have to take the steering column all apart?

    YZ125 stock handlebars (2005)?

    Hi I have a 2005 yz125 and i want to know what size handlebars are stock on this bike because I am buying a replacement renthal handlebar and i have the option between standard 7/8 inch or the oversize 1 1/8 bars. Also did the 2005 come stock with renthals?

    This is a bike I am interested in buying, found it on craigslist. Guy lives far away so I asked him to send me a video just to show that it starts and runs before i make the drive. Sounds like it bogs down. I'm a newb to two strokes. Please comment on this thread, not on youtube

    Two stroke: 125 or 250?

    Hello I am currently riding a WR250f and selling it. I want to get either a YZ125 or YZ250. What are your recommendations? Are both of these going to have more power than my WR? I will be riding equal track and trail. The reason I am switching to two stroke is for the weight loss and better power/weight ratio. And they are more fun from what I can tell I am 5'11 170lb
  13. It is in great condition except that the electric start does not work. It also has an FMF 4.1 slip on pipe and JD jetting installed. I want to buy a yz250 http://imgur.com/LLGmQ
