  1. I have an aftermarket header/muffler on the new LTZ 400 i just bought and im wondering if the stock muffler will fit on the after market header (so i dont have to buy the header too). I have the FMF powercore/powerbomb header. The muffler is 1.75 inches in diameter, and the header is 1 and 5/8 inches.

    Ran my 2006 drz400sm without oil

    Dumb moment #1, you forgot to tighten your drain bolt. Dumb moment #2 you ran the bike for half a mile KNOWING you had no oil. Honestly, you kind of deserve this. Sorry to hear though otherwise. Fyi running any engine without oil is a huge no-no. No excuses for doing that lol
  3. I put the 46T on and it definitely holds the gear a little longer but less than i was expecting. Really doesnt seem to make any difference in acceleration, if anything its nice being able to hold a gear for a split second longer so i dont have to shift as much. Top speed was 53mph with the stock 50T and not its 56mph with the 46T. It seems to climb up there fairly quick and run out of gear like it did before (on the road). Im sure it can hit 60-65mph with the proper gearing. WOuld be nice to see what a 40T could do! FYI I had to remove one link on the chain for it to fit Lol
  4. Funny you say this, i just tried putting one on today (because i did the same thing) and the input shaft did not seat 100%. It had enough play/slop, that i didnt want to use it. All of those gear it down and i have no problem finding those. Im having trouble finding anything to gear it up.
  5. If you could help me out with a link that would be great! Like i said, i could not find anything including ebay so im SOL.
  6. I ordered a CRF 100f sprocket because i think the dimensions are the same (chain is 428, input shaft is the same) Ill update the thread if everything checks out and it works!
  7. I can only find ONE company that sells KLX 140 sprockets (that gear the bike up) posted here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/322479406337?ul_noapp=true Stock gearing for my bike is 14t/50t Problem is, i get the sprocket and the input shaft cut out is to big so theres a lot of slop. Simply doesnt fit! Anywhere else to get them? Id like to gear it for 55-60mph instead of 53.

    Bike for 14 year old beginner

    I own a CRF 100f and KLX 140. If you were to choose between those two, id say KLX all day long. CRF 150f is pretty big and heavy compared to the KLX so again, id go with the 140. Its a crf 100 size frame with a bigger engine (good for beginners and just anyone who wants to mess around). KLX has worlds better suspension, brakes, and torque.

    Dual Sport

    They do pay their fair share (40% mind you). You think these mega rich people just got it handed to them? They worked for it. Go work for your own money and pay off YOUR debt yourself. Taking more from the rich doesnt solve anything. We own a family business and gross about $1,000,000 per year. Taxes absolutely kill us. It sounds good in theory to tax more from the rich, but the government already takes a whopping 40%. Its absurd. Stupid Democrats and people who dont want to work for what they have. Why should we pay for your bad life choices?

    Dual Sport

    Look into the 2014+ WR250R Yamaha dual sports. Very good bikes for their class, and they top out around 90+ which is pretty respectable.

    CRF 150F vs 100F vs KLX 140

    ​UPDATE: ​I just got a chance to VBOX both the 100F and KLX 140. I used my Vbox Sport (look it up if you want!) with a 20ghz GPS and both bikes were run 3 times, same rider (me) on the same exact stretch (off road on a level surface). ​08 KLX 140: ​0-30mph = 3.83 Seconds ​0-40mph = 7.02 Seconds ​20-40mph = 5.18 Seconds 2001 XR100 0-30mph = 4.43 seconds ​0-40mph = 8.31 seconds ​20-40mph = 5.83 seconds

    Bought a '14 KLX250S

    So​ you did 89MPH at best according to your calculations (indicated more but who really cares about that) either way that's still very good. Fuel injected right? That's probably why....
